    October 13, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Ring Around the Dwarf Planet Says ‘I’m Young’ You can’t declare something old just because your worldview requires it to be old. New Scientist declared in bold print, “Distant dwarf planet near Pluto has a ring that no one expected.” Reporter Ken Croswell, however, never explains why it was unexpected to find a prominent ring around the dwarf planet Haumea, located about 2 billion miles beyond the orbit of Pluto. When surprised by something that shouldn’t last for billions of years around a body smaller than Pluto, one strategy astronomers employ is to...
  • The ‘Great Unconformity’ and associated geochemical evidence for Noahic Flood erosion

    The ‘Great Unconformity’ and associated geochemical evidence for Noahic Flood erosion by Harry Dickens The Bible’s Flood account describes the greatest rain event ever recorded. Forty days and nights of rain falling on the earth (Genesis 7:12) would have caused immense denudation of landmasses around the globe. Evidence for this is provided by a key stratigraphic surface and by associated geochemical signatures. Nature and extent of the ‘Great Unconformity’ The term ‘Great Unconformity’ was originally used to describe the prominent stratigraphic surface exposed in the Grand Canyon that separates the Lower Cambrian Tapeats Sandstone (of the Sauk cratonic sequence) from...

    Neanderthal Racism Continues October 11, 2017 | David F. Coppedge The evidence shows that Neanderthals were fully human, having shared genetic information with us. Why, then, do Darwin Supremacists continue to treat them as “other” than human? One clear case (among many) where paleoanthropologists have been totally wrong has been in the classification of Neanderthals as a separate species, Homo neanderthalensis. As pointed out before, this amounts to a case of historical racism. For years, there have been growing signs that these ancient humans were just as intelligent as modern humans. The clincher in the last few years, though, is...

    Creation Ministries International ^ | 10-10-17 | The uniformitarian puzzle of mountaintop planation surfaces
    The uniformitarian puzzle of mountaintop planation surfaces by Michael J. Oard Planation surfaces are a common feature across the earth.1,2 But secular researchers often find these surfaces perplexing because it is not unusual to find them at the top of rugged mountains (figure 1): “Extensive tracts of low-gradient topography in steep mountain ranges, either forming rangetop plateaus or terraced pediments on range flanks are widely distributed in mountain belts around the world.”3 Calvet et al.’s survey of these flat-topped mountains establishes their frequency across the globe.3 Calvet et al. also point out that they are even found atop some of...

    September 25, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Original Dinosaur Egg Pigments Found Add this to your dinosaur soft tissue collection: eggshell pigment proteins that allowed scientists to tell the eggs were blue. Eggs of an oviraptorid dinosaur found in China are still blue and red from the original pigment. Bob Yirka reports the find in Phys.org: The team reports that theirs was the first effort to seriously study color in dinosaur eggs. It came about after the team noted some Heyuannia huangi fossilized eggs that had a bluish tint—researchers had previously assumed the tint was due to mineralization, but the...

    September 6, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Aliens Discover Voyager Record Certain humans are identifying with space aliens, pretending to know what they like. Forty years ago, the Voyager craft were launched for a mission that would never end. The craft, even after depleted of fuel and electronics, would sail endlessly through the stars. The open trajectory of the Voyagers’ voyages prompted Carl Sagan to send a memento from Earth to any potential space aliens who might recover the craft, even though Earth might long have returned to cinder when our sun expands some day into a red giant, engulfing...

    September 4, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Evolutionists Tripping Over Human Tracks on Crete These can’t be hominid tracks. They are far too early! Well, then, who made them? Per Ahlberg and his friends publishing in the Proceedings of the Geologists’ Association have gotten their field of paleoanthropology in hot water. Writing in The Conversation, Ahlberg, from the University of Uppsala, says, “Our controversial footprint discovery suggests human-like creatures may have roamed Crete nearly 6m years ago.” Six million years? That’s way back before humans were supposed to have evolved. This not only throws the evolutionary timeline out of whack,...

    Editor’s note: Writing in the Journal of Creation in 2015, Dr Kathy Wallace dealt at length with the risks of microchimerism, which is male DNA in women’s bodies. More recently, science journal Nature published a paper on the same subject called Immunological implications of pregnancy-induced microchimerism. It is pleasing to report that it was a creationist scientist who first tackled such a deeply technical subject from a biblical perspective in our peer-reviewed journal. Becoming one flesh by Kathy Wallace Women are at risk from sexual involvement with multiple partners. This can impact their health and increase the risk of miscarriage...

    August 14, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Paleontologist Spills Beans on Evolutionary Emptiness A noted evolutionary paleontologist reviews a new book on evolutionary mechanisms favorably, but gives Darwin skeptics ammo in the process. Kevin Padian, a renowned evolutionary paleontologist, is certainly no friend of creation or intelligent design. When speaking to his Darwin buddies, he feels comfortable enough to be frank about problems. Here are some scraps from the table of his book review in Nature, “Evolution: Parallel lives,” a review of Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution, by Jonathan B. Losos (Riverhead: 2017). Padian highly recommends...

    Etiology of Alien Derangement Syndrome August 2, 2017 | David F. Coppedge With no evidence for their invisible friends, believers in space aliens are losing their minds. Are they setting themselves up for mass deception? Another mystery signal from space has been solved, Phys.org announces. Bad news: It’s not aliens. This has become a common scenario: believers get excited about the possibility of a signal from their imaginary friends (6/15/17), only to find out there’s a natural explanation, and the alien-of-the-gaps explanation gets narrower. The case of the “Weird!” signal from dim star Ross 128 was admittedly a long shot,...
  • A global flood on Mars - but not on Earth?

    How a watery catastrophe shaped a planet Most scientists reject the idea of a global flood on Earth yet say they are certain there was a watery cataclysm on Mars so enormous that it carved a 3,500 km long channel that is about 400 km wide and up to 2.5 km deep. Kasei Valles, seen in MOLA elevation data. Flow was from bottom left to right. North is up.

    The Flood, Catastrophic Plate Tectonics, and Earth History by Jake Hebert, Ph.D. * Evidence for Creation Although evolutionary scientists insist there is no evidence for the global, Earth-destroying Flood described in Genesis, accepting the Genesis Flood as literal history enables researchers to make sense of a wide array of geological, climatic, and cultural data. Fossils in Water-Deposited Rocks Most of Earth’s land surface is covered with sedimentary rocks or sediments, which are formed when pre-existing rock material is weathered. The resulting sediment is then transported to another location by water, wind, or glacial action. Even secular geologists acknowledge that nearly...

    June 8, 2017 Are Atheists Generally Smarter Than Religious People? by Dr Jerry Bergman In a recent article at Live Science, Laura Geggel asks, “Why Are Atheists Generally Smarter Than Religious People?” She claims that “For more than a millennium, scholars have noticed a curious correlation: Atheists tend to be more intelligent than religious people.”[i] How they could know this, since IQ tests and other means of measuring intelligence were only developed at the start of the last century, was not answered. Another problem is many kinds of intelligence exist, such as doing well on paper and pencil tests, or...

    Unapologetic Mass Murderer Motivated by Darwin Lives in Comfort in Prison, While Victim Trauma Continues July 19, 2017 by Jerry Bergman Anders Behring Breivik (who anglicized his name to Andrew Berwick in his manifesto discussed below) was a young Norwegian who was enamored with Darwinism and his modern-day disciples, such as Princeton University Evolutionary Biologist Dr. Lee Silver. On Friday, July 22, 2011, Behring Breivik set off a powerful homemade bomb in Oslo, Norway. He then went on a killing rampage, murdering 77 young persons indiscriminately at a Youth League meeting on the nearby Norwegian island of Utøya. It was...

    Hugh Ross Church Fathers: Old earther admits “poor quality” research by other old-earthers Published: 13 July 2017 (GMT+10) From time to time we receive emails from devotees of Dr Hugh Ross, probably today’s leading advocate of old-earth creationism. Please note that we take no pleasure in highlighting the following matters. But for the sake of integrity in the creation movement (the brand of creation promoted by Ross is called ‘Progressive Creationism’), we need to address challenges by devotees of Ross as if he is a source of infallible wisdom.

    The Benefit of Christ – The Most Influential Book You Have Never Read By Simonetta Carr It was 1543. North of the Alps, Protestant reformers were busy publishing books. In Rome, the papacy was busy banning them. Still, the publishers in Venice, a proudly independent republic with a reputation of opposition to the pope, were persistent. That year’s best-seller was an Italian essay by a characteristically long name: Trattato utilissimo del beneficio di Giesù Cristo crocifisso verso i cristiani (Most useful treatise on the benefit of Jesus Christ crucified for Christians). It was called, for short, Il Beneficio di Cristo...
