    Building a Biblical Paleo-Biogeography Model September 2018 'Acts and Facts' by Jeffrey P Tomkins, Ph.D., and Tim Clarey, Ph.D.* The recent report of a fossil bird discovered in Wyoming shows another glaring indicator of evolution’s failure to explain the story of life. Scientists analyzed the fossil and realized it’s related to the turaco, a living bird that’s only found in Africa. The Paleocene bird fossil is supposedly 55 million years old, but this coincides with a time when, according to evolutionary timelines, North America and Africa were thousands of miles apart—much as they are positioned today.

    How Could Plants Evolve? Answer: They Evolved August 29, 2018 | David F. Coppedge Darwinism has replaced the need for demonstration in science with the convenience of assertion. When you read papers and articles that offer to explain how something evolved, what you often find are statements that they just evolved. Let’s see some examples.

    C=JL² This is the Metaphysical Math and Source of All Creation; It is the Grand Unified Theory Msgr. Charles Pope • August 22, 2018 • In my years as a priest, I have often had people ask me why God, who we say needs nothing and is fully content and joyful in Himself, created anything outside Himself. Does His act of creation indicate that He lacked something or that He needed others?This is difficult for us humans to understand. To some degree that difficulty arises from us, who are often motivated most by need. We tend to project our...

    Speciation is not evolution. Rapid speciation is part of the creation model. 8-18-18 Joel Tay J. C has accused CMI of being ignorant of science, evolution, and speciation. Typical for such commentators, he demonstrates a lack of understanding about what biblical creationists actually believe. We reproduce his letters to us below. CMI’s Joel Tay responds:

    Keynote Speech at Biology Conference Falsifies Major Claim of Darwinism July 19, 2018 by Sal Cordova Hailed as “the greatest biologist since Darwin,” Ronald Fisher is credited as author of “biology’s central theorem” what is known as Fisher’s Fundamental Theorem of Natural Selection.[i] An informally stated corollary of Fisher’s theorem is that a population will continually increase in fitness. However, for decades it has been noted that many populations are declining in fitness. Geneticists such as Michael Lynch[ii], Alexey Kondrashov[iii], Bryan Sykes[iv], and many others have been warning the human genome is crumbling and the damage is likely irreversible. Thus,...

    “Nylon”-Digesting Bacteria are Almost Certainly Not a Modern Strain Jul. 12, 2018 This marine bacterium has the ability to digest nylon waste products, despite the fact that it doesn’t live in an environment that contains nylon waste products. (click for credit) Evolutionists are fond of stating “facts” that aren’t anywhere near factual. For example, when I was at university, I was taught, as fact, that bacteria evolved the genes needed to resist antibiotics after modern antibiotics were made. As with most evolutionary “facts,” this turned out to be nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of evolutionists. We now...

    “It Evolved” Is Not an Explanation July 12, 2018 | David F. Coppedge A Darwinian can stare at evidence for intelligent design all day and conclude, without batting an eye, “evolution did it.” Look at these examples. A favorite attack by atheists is to accuse creationists of giving up on science, and just saying, “God did it.” That attack cuts both ways. Saying “It evolved” gives up on science even more, as the following news items demonstrate. The sea anemone, an animal that hides its complexity well (Science Daily). Observe this opening paragraph. It sounds like a tribute to wise...

    Thanks to a new study, evolutionists and their disciples are having to reexamine some of their most revered dogma. Particularly, evolutionists are now having to make sense of conclusions stating that almost all animal species, as well as humans, showed up on the stage of human history at the same time. One of the constants of science is that science is constantly revising as it is challenged by new data, new theories, and new ways of observing and measuring data, not to mention the changes in scientific ideology molded by larger worldview shifts. Thomas Kuhn's landmark book The Structure of...

    Hillsong Church has, over the years, hardly avoided the limelight, often finding itself at the center of hotly-contested debates. Now one of its biggest leaders is running headlong into the creation debate. Joel Houston, eldest son of the Sydney-based church’s founders, lead musician in the worship band Hillsong United, and co-pastor of Hillsong Church in New York City, tweeted Monday that “evolution is undeniable.”

    After ranting about the Catholic Church, the President of the Philippines now has a beef with the concept of 'original sin' in the Genesis creation story MANILA, Philippines – After recent tirades against priests and the Church's "hypocrisy," Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte cursed God and called God "stupid" for the concept of "original sin" in the Bible's creation story. Duterte, on Friday, June 22, began with retelling the story of Adam and Eve and how they ate the fruit from the forbidden tree and thus brought original sin upon humankind. "Kinain ni Adam (Adam ate it) then malice was born....

With the memory of suicides of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade in recent news, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just released alarming statistics. From 2000 to 2016 there was a 30 percent increase in the age-adjusted suicide rate in the United States, according to a June data brief published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics…. “In 2016,...

    Could Designed Systems Explain Green Lizard Blood? BY RANDY J. GULIUZZA, P.E., M.D. * THURSDAY, JUNE 14, 2018 Green blood is not something you see every day. The recent search for why several species of lizards found in New Guinea have green blood assumes an evolutionary origin for these creatures. It seems like the researchers started with a discovery that indicates green blood developed independently in four species from red-blooded ancestors.

    Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species. In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time. More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. "This conclusion...

    Scientists Prove Limestone Can Form Quickly BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | THURSDAY, JUNE 07, 2018 Many environmentalists are concerned with the anthropogenic production of carbon dioxide produced by burning fossil fuels. Research projects are being funded across the globe to find ways to sequester the “extra” CO2 produced by these processes in an effort to save our planet. These results show that the primary minerals that compose limestone can rapidly form—easily within the timeframe of the global Flood in Genesis. One of these projects was discussed recently in an article by Valeria Perasso of the BBC News Service.1 She...

    Elephant Genome Project: evolutionary theory re-written by Joel Tay Published: 31 May 2018 (GMT+10) The results of a decade-long Elephant Genome Project have caused previously accepted evolutionary tree models to be discarded. It was previously thought there were two living species of elephants: the African, and the Asian. However, this research suggests that there are actually three: the Asian elephant, the forest-inhabiting African elephant, and the savanna-roaming African elephant.

    Who would have suspected that a handheld genetic test used to unmask sushi bars pawning off tilapia for tuna could deliver deep insights into evolution, including how new species emerge? ------- The study's most startling result, perhaps, is that nine out of 10 species on Earth today, including humans, came into being 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. "This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could," Thaler told AFP.

    Christian Post ^ | 05/18/2018 | F. LaGard Smith
    We have Charles Darwin to thank for opening our eyes to the forces of natural selection so useful today in medical research, healthcare, and technology. But Darwin also did us a great disservice, all too blithely extrapolating from observable "bounded" evolution to his Grand Theory of microbe-to-man "unbounded" evolution. In a nutshell, Darwin speculated that, since there is evolution within well-defined species, then all species must surely be the result of evolution. Logical enough, but simply wrong. Darwin's extrapolation is fraught with a host of problems, at least one of which—in three particulars—is fatal to his Grand Theory.That fatal flaw?...

    Why is a Psalm About Creation Proclaimed on the Feast of the Apostles? Msgr. Charles Pope • May 3, 2018 • Thursday’s feast of Saints Philip and James, like that for almost all the apostles, contains passages from Psalm 19. This has always intrigued me because this psalm is not a reference to human preaching or witness at all, but rather a reference to the wordless witness of creation.The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor...

Pope at Our Sunday Visitor.)I recently received these two questions on creation:Q: I wonder if God has not finished creating the world, that we are still in the sixth day of creation. Then God will rest.Perhaps we can begin by distinguishing macroevolution from microevolution and Natural Law from natural variations within that law. Microevolution refers to developmental changes...

    Assembling the Pre-Flood World BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 2018 Knowledge of the pre-Flood world is limited because the Bible only gives a few details. Some creationists have relied heavily on secular interpretations in their studies on continental configurations and pre-Flood geography. ICR’s geological research is the first to tackle this issue using actual rock data from around the globe.
