    Tailbone “serves no purpose”? New York Museum of Natural History misleads the public by Keaton Halley Published: 27 April 2017 (GMT+10) On a recent visit to the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York, I encountered a sign that struck me as an embarrassment to that institution. It claimed that the human coccyx, or tailbone, serves no purpose, but reminds us that humans have descended from ancestral animals with tails. [Emphasis added] Serves no purpose? Really? The claim is absurd. Although evolutionists since Darwin have been foisting such nonsense on the public, anyone who bothers to investigate the...

    In “A Big Bang in a Little Room,” Zeeya Merali describes the consensus among science’s biggest brains: “The notion that a god made our universe is several rungs on the wackiness ladder above the idea that it was made by aliens.” Nevertheless, Merali describes herself as both a believer in God and the holder of an Ivy League Ph.D. in theoretical physics, so she asks a good question: If God desired to send us a message, how would He do it? Thirty-two years ago Carl Sagan’s novel “Contact” included speculation about finding a code in the digits of pi, which...

    Edinburgh’s tale of two cities: Learning from the lessons of history by Paul James-Griffiths Published: 9 March 2017 (GMT+10) For the past 10 years I have been leading walking tours2 of the famous Royal Mile in Edinburgh. What a joy it is to weave our way around the old streets where people can discover our extraordinary Christian heritage. Here St Columba and St Cuthbert preached, as did John Knox and the Scottish Reformers; here the Covenanter Christians bled and died for their faith. Amidst the years and turmoil of the ages revival has broken out to transform the world from...

    Why Was Civilization So Late in Coming? Posted on February 27, 2017 According to evolutionists, modern man appeared 200,000 years ago, but civilization appeared only 8,000 years ago. We examine their explanations. An interesting question was asked on Quora and reproduced on “Why Haven’t We Found Civilizations Older Than 7,000 — 8,000 years?” Taking the bat was Adam Wu, an evolutionary neurosurgeon from Saskatchewan. Here’s a synopsis of his answers:

    When it comes to swindles, it would be hard to top Liz Carmichael. She spun a tale about obtaining proprietary secrets from her deceased NASA engineer husband that enabled her to start and become CEO of a totally bogus car company marketing the Dale. This fictitious 84 mpg, three-wheeled car bilked millions from investors in 1975…and all the while Liz was actually a man, Jerry Dean Michael, impeccably dressed like a woman. No investor ever saw the car factory or drove a Dale. Yet, “Liz” always talked with investors so matter-of-factly about “her” wholly imaginary industrial realm that they willingly...

    Fossils Destroy Human Evolution Story Again Posted on February 16, 2017 The old picture of human evolution is in tatters again. “Your face is probably more primitive than a Neanderthal’s.” That surprising headline on the BBC News summarizes the radical change in thinking of leading evolutionary paleoanthropologists about so-called ‘modern’ humans: i.e., those members of our genus Homo that have been unblessed by the self-serving species name sapiens (“the wise”). If you read Richard Gray’s article without the assumption of evolution, you may find yourself questioning the sapience of some moderns.

    How Many More Anomalies Can Darwinism Take? February 11, 2017 Darwinism survives not because it is empirically verified, but because it is a deduction from a tightly-held materialistic worldview. Quine spoke of a “web of belief” that absorbs shocks that would normally falsify a theory. Darwin gave rise to a web of belief made of iron – no, titanium. For over 150 years it has resisted shocks that would snap any other scientific theory, but Darwinism is not a scientific theory. Tom Bethell shows in his new book, Darwin’s House of Cards, that Darwinism is a deduction from a worldview,...

    The 200th anniversary of the birth of devoted Materialist and Evolutionist Charles Darwin was in 2009. It was that year that I first became aware of “Evolution Weekend.” Originally “Evolution Sunday,” Evolution Weekend is the product of The Clergy Letter Project. This project exists to promote the teaching of Darwinian evolution, especially within religious institutions. For example, the letter to Christian clergy, in part, reads, "While virtually all Christians take the Bible seriously and hold it to be authoritative in matters of faith and practice, the overwhelming majority do not read the Bible literally, as they would a science textbook…Religious...

    Why look for a new theory of gravity if the big bang cosmology is correct? by John G. Hartnett Published: 7 February 2017 (GMT+10) Occasionally we read in the popular press, especially online, that someone has come up with a new theory of gravity. Why is that even necessary if the current theory describing the evolution of the universe is so correct? The standard ΛCDM big bang cosmology is derived from an application of certain non-biblical boundary conditions to the physics of Einstein’s general relativity theory. But when that was applied to the universe as a whole, two problems developed...

    Mummified lion cubs in Siberian deep freeze by Phil Robinson Two extinct Eurasian cave lion cubs have been recovered from permafrost on the bank of the Uyandina River, Siberia. Flooding and landslides along the river’s banks in the summer of 2015 revealed an ice lens in which the cubs’ remains were spotted. They are thought to have been only a week or two old at death, as their baby teeth had not yet erupted. But they were the size of full-grown domestic cats.

    Fast Evolution Confirms Creationist Theory by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. * A tenet of creationist theory maintains that creatures are designed for robust speciation. Although they cannot change into fundamentally different kinds, creatures can rapidly express a wide diversity of traits to fit changing environments. "Fast evolution affects everyone, everywhere" is one headline1 from the theme of the Royal Society's life science journal in January, 2017.2 But its content further bolsters creationist theory. The pace of change within organisms is a keen topic of interest. One reason many people doubt evolution is that no one has ever seen one...

    How did the waters of Noah’s Flood drain off the continents? by Mike Oard Many ask: “If Noah’s Flood really covered the whole earth, then where did the water go?” This question has a simple answer, and once we understand what happened and how, we can see the reality of the biblical Flood all around the world. As the ocean basins sank, thousands of metres of sediment washed off the continents, forming the continental margin. The floodwater is in the oceans Actually, the Bible tells us where the water went. By Day 150 of the Flood catastrophe the floodwaters had...

    Big Science Pops its Zits If you think institutional science has a smooth complexion, look closer. From every angle, serious blemishes are coming to light. Observational Errors There are five times more urban foxes in England than we thought (New Scientist). Some biologists think red foxes are multiplying in cities and vanishing from the countryside. This article puts the blame on scientists’ methods of counting them. “It is also possible that foxes haven’t become much more numerous in cities – we just didn’t realise they were there before,” Aisling Irwin writes. And it’s not just foxes. “Older figures for bird...

    Major Evolutionary Blunders: Neanderthals Were Subhuman in Imagination Only by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. * Evidence for Creation “So easy, a caveman could do it” is the witty slogan of a company hoping to lure customers to switch car insurance. The humorous catch to the commercial was the brutish-looking, yet endearing, Neanderthals living among us who found the slogan stereotyping them as dimwits to be “not cool” or “hurtful.” The fact that viewers could readily spot the standard view of Neanderthals shows how pervasive it is and how it dominates the popular perception.

    The week after Christmas, leading up to the New Year, can be the richest time for reflection. Holiday gift-buying is over, the presents are unwrapped or even returned, and not much happens in the news. One can sit back and contemplate those moments in which the Christmas spirit overcomes worldly concerns, such as an impromptu sighting of a star on a dark night and wondering what it was like 2,000 years ago in Israel, which was Roman Judea at the time. Or watching a baby smile, eliciting a mother’s tender touch. Or seeing a new father’s protective presence. In “O...

Gregg Davidson and Ken Wolgemuth. Scientists from both ICR (The Institute for Creation Research) and AIG (Answers in Genesis) recently refuted the strongest of these arguments from their article. The BioLogos Foundation is an organization that promotes what it calls "evolutionary creation."2,3 It goes further than other old-Earth "Christianity and science" organizations (such as Reasons to Believe) in that it...

    The platypus - Still more questions than answers for evolutionists by Paula Weston Imagine, if you will, the excited glances exchanged if paleontologists were to uncover a fossil that looked like a mammal, yet also had bird and reptilian features. The immediate reaction would probably be to declare that here was, clearly, a transitional creature that provided an evolutionary link between mammals and their non-mammalian ancestors. That might well be the conclusion drawn if a platypus fossil were found today, without living examples around to indicate otherwise.
