    Institution for Creation Research ^ | Apr 1, 2010 | Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D., & Brian Thomas, M.S.
    A recent high-profile article in the journal Nature released the results of a study with implications that shocked the scientific community because they contradict long-held claims of human-chimp DNA similarity.1 A previous Acts & Facts article showed that much of the research surrounding the often touted claims of 98 percent (or higher) DNA similarity between chimps and humans has been based on flawed and biased research.2 The problem is that the similarity has been uncertain because no one has performed an unbiased and comprehensive DNA similarity study until now. And the results are not good news for the story of...
  • In Full Campaign Mode, Obama Calls Out GOP as “Flat Earthers”

    President Obama in full campaign mode today called out “Flat Earth” Republicans for not having vision. He referenced an advisor to Henry Ford who said, the automobile is a fad and the horse is here to stay. Again, Obama uses campaign rhetoric to show is incompetence in all matters economic. The example Obama uses to point out the folly of the GOP is such a glaring example of everything wrong with the current administration’s view of that which drives a successful economic engine. Take the example of the car and horse; the late 19th century saw cities plagued by a...

    "As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities." —Voltaire "Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true." —Demosthenes A long, long, long time ago, many people believed the Earth was flat, but for more than the last 2,000 years few educated people have subscribed to this delusion. The story (included in some textbooks used in American schools) that Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage was the first proof that the Earth is round and not flat is deceitful historical revisionism, nothing more. For (literally) thousands of years, people...

    LONDON (AFP) – World leaders heading to UN climate talks next week must not be distracted by "flat-earth" sceptics who deny humans are to blame for global warming, Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned Saturday. "With only days to go before Copenhagen, we mustn't be distracted by the behind-the-times, anti-science, flat-earth climate sceptics," Brown told The Guardian newspaper ahead of the landmark UN summit in the Danish capital. "We know the science. We know what we must do. We must now act and close the five-billion-tonne gap. That will seal the deal." Government advisor Nicholas Stern estimated that 10 billion tonnes...

    Darwinists Trick Themselves in Texas The New York Times got the preview story wrong, and the Washington Post editorial writer probably was too rushed to question the charges of "creationism" coming from the National Center for Science Education, the Darwin-only lobby. So this week's important decisions by the Texas Board of Education (TBOE) on how to teach evolution were predicated in the media by the big question of whether teachers should provide both "strengths and weaknesses" of Darwin's theory. Those words might sound benign, readers were told, but they really are "code words" (take the press' word for it) for...

    “In the US we have a new economic school called the Zimbabwe school. And it’s founded by one of the great leaders of this world, Robert Mugabe who managed to totally impoverish his own country and that is the monetary policy the US is pursuing. If something goes wrong, print, if it doesn’t get fixed print more, if things get even worse print even more.” “Looking at government debt and debt in general the only way they will not default physically on the debt is to inflate…. I don’t see how the federal reserve will ever again increase interest rates...

    My answer to him was, "John, when people thought the earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the earth was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together."

James Kennedy's Coral Ridge Ministries that attempts to link Charles Darwin's theory of evolution to Adolf Hitler and the atrocities of the Holocaust. ADL also denounced Coral Ridge Ministries for misleading Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute for the NIH, and wrongfully using him as part of its twisted documentary, "Darwin's Deadly Legacy." After being contacted by the ADL about...

Superintendent Monte C. Moses said Jay Bennish will be reinstated to his job at Overland High School, and will be teaching on Monday.

    Mohler on MSNBC: Evolution an intellectual pacifier By Jeff Robinson Dec 17, 2004 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)--The theory of evolution has become an intellectual pacifier for the secular left in America, and the desire of a Pennsylvania school system to teach Intelligent Design is a signal that parents are fed up with standard liberal teaching on the origins of humanity, R. Albert Mohler Jr. told viewers of MSNBC's "Scarborough Country," Thursday night. Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said parents of children who attend America's public schools have become wise to the secular left's agenda in teaching Darwin's theory of...

    Experts aim to make technology and science relate more to everyday life. What Do You Say When Someone Says The Earth's Flat?How long does it take the Earth to orbit the sun? Half of U.S. adults don't know, according to a recent National Science Foundation survey. In fact, a 2001 NSF survey found that 42% of adults said they couldn't be bothered with science and technology issues--this at a time when literacy in both have enormous impact on the nation's health and economy.Joe Schwarcz, director of McGill University's Office for Science and Society in Montreal, says indifference and outright rejection...

    Our body plan is being defined in the first few hours of life. Your world was shaped in the first 24 hours after conception. Where your head and feet would sprout, and which side would form your back and which your belly, were being defined in the minutes and hours after sperm and egg united. Just five years ago, this statement would have been heresy. Mammalian embryos were thought to spend their first few days as a featureless orb of cells. Only later, at about the time of implantation into the wall of the uterus, were cells thought to acquire...

    Mysterious Shift in Earth's Gravity Suggests Equator is Bulging By Robert Roy Britt Senior Science Writer posted: 02:00 pm ET 01 August 2002 Something strange has been going on under our feet for the past four years. Earth's gravity field suddenly shifted gears and began getting flatter, reversing a course of centuries during which the planet and its gravity field grew rounder each year. The scientists who noticed the change and report it in the Aug. 2 issue of the journal Science suspect Earth itself may be flattening out, with the oceans rising near the equator, but they aren't...
