Metal 'Snakes' Fall Far Short of Life
by Brian Thomas, M.S.*
Researchers at Argonne National Laboratories have observed nickel filings ordering into rows atop a special fluid. With precisely structured electromagnetic fields surrounding them, the snake-like rows undulated in their beakers. The magnetically-motivated metals meanderings appeared so lifelike that Wired Science writer Alexis Madrigal suggested the tiny nickel trains can provide clues about how life originally organized itself....

It just decided to one day.
I wish my life would organize itself. I’m still waiting, tapping my foot every now and then...
Didn't we all do this experiment in junior high school? Oh my goodness, the iron filings were *alive* all along! If I'd known, I'm sure I would have had nightmares, like I did about the earthworm dissection!
...and then when it reached the zenith of complexity, it decided to stop organizing itself and enjoy some much deserved stasis :o)
Wow, NICE! If my sons saw that, they would want one! (I suppose you don’t have to feed it mice, like a real snake ...)
Must be nice to have everyone else do your work for you. You just sit back and find some way to make other people’s work prove your theories.
>Didn’t we all do this experiment in junior high school?
I didn’t... but I don’t doubt that some did.
Maybe at a movie theater with a hole in the bottom of the popcorn container...
We report, you decide :o)
When the data is this tangential, and the conclusions this speculative, the most substantial evidence is what's implied in the tactics.
How to flunk yer IQ test:
Become an evolution writer.
How do they come up with these clangers?
Creation scientists reinterpret the data that the Evos crank out in endless volumes of mostly government funded research journals. Reinterpreting the data is part of science. As such, the government funded Evos are the gift that just keeps on giving and giving and giving :o)
They have no choice. It is the product of millions of years of random mutation, plus natural selection hardwiring :o)
And in the next breath or someone else will tell me that everything they do is wrong and all their research is worthless because they’re starting from a flawed premise :).
Data is data. The proper interpretation means all the difference in the world! That’s why creation scientists are so crucial to science :o)
I think they’re Replicators.
What would be different without them?
There would be no hope of a correct interpretation of origins, cosmology, the created kinds, age of the Earth, geology, etc, etc.
Haven't you seen the quote about how when the scientists climb the last mountain, they'll find the theologians there waiting for them?
Thanks for the ping!
Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Oh great- Now PETA is goign to start demanding that we treat metal filings with respect andafford them all the ‘rights’ they desrve! Swell!
I was thinking more along the lines of dependence on lawsuits to ensure they're relevant. ;)
239,513 articles in this archive alone. And if you're really interested, there's more in these really strange buildings called "libraries".
(And you may want to talk to the intelligent design proponents about that "aliens seeding earth's life forms" notion. Seems to be one of their "we don't care who the designer is" default positions.)
You may want to discuss this with your troops. Seems to be an article of faith in the rank and file that "Evolutionists & Friends do not make scientific discoveries."

Virtually all Creationists and IDers are aware that the government funded scientists specializing in evolution pump out volumes and volumes of mostly meaningless data. However, within that data, there are a few gems that are usually missed because the Evos are looking through the lenses of Darwood’s materialist creation myth. When those gems are viewed through the lens of God’s creation, they suddenly begin to sparkle and make sense.
Do you find that insulting others is a good way to bring people over to your side?
