  • Experiments cast doubt on how the Earth was formed

    08/14/2017 9:04:24 PM PDT · by Ernest_at_the_Beach · 55 replies
    <p>New geochemical research indicates that existing theories of the formation of the Earth may be mistaken. The results of experiments to show how zinc (Zn) relates to sulphur (S) under the conditions present at the time of the formation of the Earth more than 4 billion years ago, indicate that there is a substantial quantity of Zn in the Earth’s core, whereas previously there had been thought to be none. This implies that the building blocks of the Earth must be different to what has been supposed. The work is presented at the Goldschmidt geochemistry conference in Paris.</p>
  • An Open Letter to My Colleagues (regarding life’s origin)

    Inference Review ^ | August 2, 2017 | James Tour
    An Open Letter to My Colleagues James TourLife should not exist. This much we know from chemistry. In contrast to the ubiquity of life on earth, the lifelessness of other planets makes far better chemical sense. Synthetic chemists know what it takes to build just one molecular compound. The compound must be designed, the stereochemistry controlled. Yield optimization, purification, and characterization are needed. An elaborate supply is required to control synthesis from start to finish. None of this is easy. Few researchers from other disciplines understand how molecules are synthesized. Synthetic constraints must be taken into account when considering the...

    During the eight years of the Obama administration, half a million Christians, Yazidis and Muslims were slaughtered in the Middle East by ISIS and other Islamic jihadists, in a genocidal campaign waged in the name of Islam and its God. Twenty million others were driven into exile by these same jihadist forces. Libya and Yemen became terrorist states. America - once the dominant foreign power and anti-jihadist presence in the region – was replaced by Russia, an ally of the monster regimes in Syria and Iran, and their terrorist proxies. Under the patronage of the Obama administration, Iran - the...
  • Half the atoms in every human are ALIEN in origin and come from outside the Milky Way

    The Sun ^ | 07/27/2017 | By Jasper Hamill
    Every one of us contains alien atoms that originated in a galaxy far, far away, a new study suggests. Scientists have discovered that up to half the matter making up our galaxy, the Milky Way, used to belong to other clusters of stars. The sun, the Earth, and even our own bodies probably contain a large proportion of this galaxy-hopping material, which migrated to our part of the universe across vast expanses of space. Lead researcher Dr Daniel Angles-Alcazar, from Northwestern University in the US, said: “Given how much of the matter out of which we formed may have come...

    During Saturday’s Freedom Rally at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump said that ever since 1776, America has always affirmed “that liberty comes from Our Creator.” He also told the evangelical community that his administration will “support and defend your religious liberty.” In his speech, the president celebrated God’s presence at America’s founding and Religious Freedom in America today. Following his salute to America’s veterans, he stated, “Tonight we celebrate veterans. We also reflect on all that we cherish as Americans. We love our country, we love our families, we love our freedom, and we love our...

    Saturday, President Donald Trump said in his “Celebrate Freedom Rally” speech honoring veterans at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. that ever since signing the Declaration of Independence, America had “affirmed that liberty comes from our creator,” adding that “no earthly force can ever take those rights away.” “Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago, America always affirmed that liberty comes from our creator,” Trump declared. “Our rights are given to us by God and no earthly force can ever take those rights away. That is why my administration is returning that power back to where...

    Zero times anything is zero. The odds of life just happening by chance are zero. This universe just springing into being by chance is impossible. It takes a leap of blind faith to believe in evolution, unguided or guided. Of course, there are tiny changes within kinds. It seems to me usually when the evolutionists make their case, they point to these tiny changes. The analogies to the improbability of evolution by a random process are endless. A hurricane blows through a junkyard and assembles a fully functioning 747 jet. Scrabble pieces are randomly spilled out on the board, and...

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    Last November, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange declared that the “CIA created ISIS” alongside a release of 500,000+ cables from 1979. Assange said that the decision made by the CIA, along with Saudi Arabia, to send large sums of money into arming the Mujahideen in Afghanistan during their fight against the Soviet Union, eventually led to the creation of al-Qaeda. This terror group was responsible for the 9/11 atrocities in New York, which resulted in the invasions of both Afghanistan and Iraq by the U.S. and the inception of ISIS. The bloody year of 1979 would prove a pivotal one for...

    Big Bang Blowup at Scientific American by Jake Hebert, Ph.D. * The February 2017 issue of Scientific American contains an article by three prominent theoretical physicists from Princeton and Harvard who strongly question the validity of cosmic inflation, an important part of the modern Big Bang theory.1 They argued that inflation can never be shown to be wrong—it cannot be falsified—and therefore inflation isn’t even a scientific hypothesis. Inflation theory was proposed by physicist Alan Guth to solve a number of serious problems in early versions of the Big Bang model. Supposedly, the universe underwent an extremely short period of...

    It’s Easter, a time when Christians the world over commemorate the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of their Lord and Savior. However, it isn’t just Christians, but anyone and everyone who regularly reaps the incalculable benefits of Western civilization that should be grateful for the fact that Jesus of Nazareth walked among us. In virtually every conceivable way, Jesus, courtesy of the legions of disciples that He spawned throughout the centuries, has made the world that we take for granted. Though it will doubtless come as an enormous shock to such Christophobic atheists as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and their ilk,...

Michael Klarman spoke with Patrick Spero at the National Constitution Center.

    Meanwhile the ideal should not be “almost” feeling sorry for them, but organizing a strong resistance to protect America from a Muslim president, forced upon it by the hidden agenda of a so-called Big Women’s March Movement Despite the sea of pink p**sy caps seen on worldwide streets during the Big Women’s’ March yesterday, the pink cap was not the real symbol of the march—the Muslim veil was. The Muslim veil and a hijab made out of the highly revered American flag were the real symbols of the day. There was one march organizer far more worrisome than Mama Michael...

AP Photo The rise of Southeastern football in general and Alabama football specifically and all the endless gloating that goes along with it? It's Washington's fault. That isn't just jealous prattle from fans of Oregon or Washington State, likely the two fan bases most annoyed by the Huskies' sudden rise to the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl opposite the vaunted Crimson Tide. No, it's a perfectly reasonable extrapolation from the words of multiple historians and sportswriters. On the surface, No. 4 Washington...

    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...

    Text of the video: A further challenge for the national Russian identity is connected to the processes we observe outside of Russia. They include foreign policy, moral, and other aspects. We see that many Euro-Atlantic states have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilization. In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied - national, religious, cultural, and even gender identities are being denied or relativised. There, politics treats a family with many children as juridically equal to a homosexual partnership;...
  • The First Americans Didn't Arrive by the Bering Land Bridge, Study Says

    University of Copenhagen researchers Eske Willerslev, Mikkel Pedersen, and their colleagues found that this harsh route only became viable for human migration 12,600 years ago—when the first plants and animals showed up in the region. Meanwhile, archaeologists have ample evidence that people were living in the Americas long before then. “We know conclusively that human groups were in the interior before that date—perhaps as early as 15,000 calibrated radiocarbon years before present—so it is highly unlikely that they came south through the corridor,” said Michael O’Brien, an anthropologist and current academic vice president of Texas A&M University–San Antonio, who wasn’t...

    Christian Post ^ | 12/06/2016 | Eric Metaxas
    Hey — guess what? There's something cosmically special about us human beings after all. Even the Washington Post says so. One of the cardinal tenets of a worldview shaped by materialism and Neo-Darwinism is a rejection of the idea that human beings are in any way special. Instead, we're merely the result of a fortuitous accident. What's more, many adherents postulate that this accident has occurred, perhaps even often, elsewhere in the Cosmos. So there's nothing exceptional or unique about us. However, Howard A. Smith, an astrophysicist at the Smithsonian-Harvard Center for Astrophysics, begs to differ. In a recent Washington...

Palin said the 2016 election was vindication for “me and millions of other Americans who, for years and years, have been saying smaller, smarter government is the answer, and we need someone who is politically incorrect enough to say what needs to be said, and do what needs to be doin’, to fix the problems that we’re in in our nation.”Marlow said he thought Trump’s campaign theme of “draining the swamp” in DC...
