When I taught Biology, I had a number of dissections that were planned. The first one scheduled was a simple grasshopper. I was a little (maybe a lot nervous) about leading dissections and how some of the squirrely freshman would handle them. But at least I got to start it off easy with the simple grasshopper. Then I looked up some diagrams…woah! They are amazingly intricate! Think about it: There are probably billions of these things all over the world and they all...Read More
The Positive Case for Creation
The Positive Case for Creation: Is there evidence to show that Creation Science is true? “When we examine the world, we find abundant positive evidence to support these claims. Here are just a few examples.” -The Cause of the Universe -Design in Nature -Source of Morality -Young Age Indicators -Genetic data consistent with Adam and Eve -Geology supports a global flood -Human Value -Signs of the soul -Marriage and family Which one do you...Read More
Too Much – Bad!…Too Little – Bad!
Heme – “vital for life”, but too much and it is toxic and causes cancer, diseases, and aging. “Manufacturing it is therefore an absolutely essential biological process, but this must be tightly controlled. …This is yet another demonstration of the fact that cells are far from simple. Here we see they are logistics experts, employing complex systems of checks and balances. In this case, it involves perfectly gauging the supply and demand of this absolutely essential...Read More
Is Science Only About Natural Explanations??
“Science does deal with non-observable, intelligent causes where it suits the practitioners—for example, forensic science is all about finding evidence that ‘person X poisoned person Y with strychnine’, for example (natural causes cannot account for person Y’s body containing strychnine, so someone, an intelligent agent, was responsible). Likewise, the SETI program is tacit agreement that science can tell the difference between natural causes and intelligent causes...Read More
An Honest Atheist!
Former hard-nosed English Atheist philosopher Antony Flew abandoned Atheism/materialism because of the growing evidence for such design in living things. He said: “It now seems to me that the findings of more than fifty years of DNA research have provided materials for a new and enormously powerful argument to design.” This research “has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce (life), that intelligence must have...Read More
Thermodynamics “Not” a Problem for Evolutionists?
Is the Second Law of Thermodynamics “Not” a Problem for Evolutionists? “’Professor Dave’ argues that the origin of life does not face thermodynamic hurdles. He states that natural systems often spontaneously increase in order, such as water freezing or soap molecules forming micelles (e.g., spheres or bilayers). He is making the very common mistake that he fails to recognize that the formation of a cell represents both a dramatic decrease in entropy and an equally...Read More
Absolute Rejection…Apart from the Evidence!
“We should reject, as a matter of principle, the substitution of intelligent design for the dialogue of chance and necessity (Behe 1996); but we must concede that there are presently no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical system, only a variety of wishful speculations.” Franklin Harold, The Way of the Cell, p. 205, 2001.

“Unexpected Aerodynamics of Bat Flight”
“Unexpected aerodynamics of bat flight…it just gets harder for evolutionists”!! “The stretchy skin on a bat’s wings interacts with air differently compared to the firmer wings of birds and insects. This elasticity, combined with dozens of joints (even more than in a human hand),3 allows bats to generate unusual wing shapes and motions, e.g. that give more lift at higher angles of attack—the angle at which the wing meets the air on the downstroke. This may allow bats...Read More
Jupiter’s Mysterious Gases!!
“The amount of the gases argon, krypton and xenon in Jupiter is about three times more than that predicted by evolutionary models. The only place where these gases could have accumulated is beyond the orbit of Neptune, about 5 billion kilometres beyond where Jupiter is today. Could Jupiter have formed way out there and then moved inward to its present position? No, there’s not enough material there, so far from the sun, to form a planet as large as Jupiter. And...Read More
“If ENCODE is right, evolution is wrong.”
If Evolution has occurred due to mutations occurring randomly over long periods of time, then the human genome would just be filled with extra stuff – “Junk DNA”. The Encode Project “undermined the “junk DNA” myth and simultaneously fulfilled an ID prediction: that non-coding parts of the genome would prove functional. Junk-DNA proponents like Dan Graur were upset at the time, admitting as Jonathan Wells reported, “If ENCODE is right, evolution is wrong.”...Read More
“Striking” – Complexity and the Incredible Functional Nature of DNA
“Striking” – Complexity and the Incredible Functional Nature of DNA is Evidence of an Intelligent Designer!! “Skipper says it was “striking” to find that they were able to assign a “biochemical function” to 80 percent of the genome: striking, because “not such a long time ago, we still considered that a vast proportion of the human genome was simply junk.” Birney comments, “It’s very hard to get over the density of information” in the genome. They found places that...Read More
Complex and specified information, computer-like systems, and incredible machines!!
“The past fifty years of biological research have found that life is fundamentally based upon: A vast amount of complex and specified information encoded in a biochemical language. A computer-like system of commands and codes that processes the information. Irreducibly complex molecular machines and multi-machine systems. Where, in our experience, do language, complex and specified information, programming code, and machines come from? They have only one known...Read More
