    "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1 Introduction The very first word of the Torah indicates the awareness of the significance of time - בְּרֵאשִׁית - "in the beginning..." (Genesis 1:1), and according to Rabbinic tradition, the very first commandment given to the children of Israel after being delivered from Egypt was to sanctify the "New Moon" (Exodus 12:1-2), thereby causing the fledgling nation to depart from the solar tradition of the Egyptians (Ra worship) and to look to the moon for a new means of reckoning times and seasons....

    Scientists Retract Dino-Bird Paper August 3, 2020 | Jerry Bergman Was it a Bird or a Dinosaur? The Latest Guess is Neither. Its a Lizard! An Example of Guesswork in Paleontology by Jerry Bergman, PhD A recent fossil find preserved in amber looked a lot like a bird, but a Nature headline proclaimed it to be a dinosaur.[1] It has now been determined to be a lizard! Its final classification can be debated, but it cannot be debated that it is a good story which illustrates the degree of guesswork in the field of paleontology. As is often said about...
  • Evolution's Inherent Racism defended by Clarence Darrow: The Monkey Trial & William Jennings Bryan

    American Minute ^ | July 21, 2020 | Bill Federer
    The Scopes Monkey Trial in 1925 pitted EVOLUTION against CREATION. Clarence Darrow was the attorney who defended EVOLUTION. Darrow had previously defended Leopold and Loeb, the teenage homosexual thrill killers who murdered 14-year-old Robert "Bobby" Franks in 1924 just for the excitement. Darrow obtained a pardon for antifa-type anarchists in 1886 who blew up a pipe bomb in Chicago's Haymarket, Square, killing 7 policemen and injured 60 others. A Haymarket Statue was dedicated to the fallen policemen. The policemen's Haymarket Statue was blown up by the socialist anarchist group Weather Underground on October 6, 1969, prior to the "Days of...

    Impossible Hybrid Suggests Non-Darwinian Change July 28, 2020 | David F. Coppedge Animals may be more capable of sharing genetic information than coming up with it de novo. What is a sturdlefish? Its a cross between a sturgeon and a paddlefish. But this is no silly riddle for middle schoolers. Its a reality that biologists thought was impossible: two species of fish from different continents that interbred and produced live offspring, even though their common ancestor supposedly lived 184 million years ago.
  • Eggs of Earliest Dinosaurs Had Soft, Leathery Shells

    Sci-News ^ | June 18, 2020 | News Staff / Source
    A team of paleontologists from the United States, Canada and Argentina has analyzed the fossilized eggs of two different non-avian dinosaurs, Protoceratops and Mussaurus, and found that the eggs resembled those of turtles in their microstructure, composition, and mechanical properties. They've also found that hard-shelled eggs evolved at least three times independently in the dinosaur family tree. For many years there was scant fossil evidence of dinosaur eggs, and all known examples were characterized by thick, calcified shells -- leading paleontologists to speculate that all dinosaur eggs were hard-shelled, like those of modern crocodiles and birds. "The assumption has always...

    The Book of Genesis puts Adam and Eve together in the Garden of Eden, but geneticists version of the duo the ancestors to whom the Y chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA of todays humans can be traced were thought to have lived tens of thousands of years apart. Now, two major studies of modern humans Y chromosomes suggest that Y-chromosome Adam and mitochondrial Eve may have lived around the same time after all. When the overall population size does not change (as is likely to have happened for long periods of human history), men have, on average, just one...

"Mitochondrial Eve"... between 190,000 and 200,000 years ago, and ... "Y-chromosomal Adam", between 50,000 and 115,000 years ago. Now, a team of researchers led by Stanford University's Carlos Bustamente and David Poznik have redefined the ranges for Y-chromosomal Adam and Mitochondrial Eve, placing them at 120,000 to 156,000 years ago and 99,000 to 148,000 years ago, respectively. The most significant finding relates to the relative timing of their existence... ...The researchers compared Y-chromosome sequences among 69 men...

    ScienceDaily staff ^ | August 17, 2010 | materials provided by Rice U
    The most robust statistical examination to date of our species' genetic links to "mitochondrial Eve" -- the maternal ancestor of all living humans -- confirms that she lived about 200,000 years ago. The Rice University study was based on a side-by-side comparison of 10 human genetic models that each aim to determine when Eve lived using a very different set of assumptions about the way humans migrated, expanded and spread across Earth... "Our findings underscore the importance of taking into account the random nature of population processes like growth and extinction," said study co-author Marek Kimmel, professor of statistics at...

The research reviewed here reveals an unbridgeable chasm exists between animal and human minds.

    The Federalist ^ | April 22, 2020 | Glenn T. Stanton
    While the rest of us cant imagine life without beauty, its absence would certainly make life easier for evolutionists. They will just have to accept their beautiful plight. I dont often think about evolution, but I recently found myself doing so under the warm, cerulean waters of Sharks Cove on the North Shore of Oahu. I was snorkeling, taking in the tropical fish schooling around me. I thought, how did their diverse and extravagant beauty come to exist? If natural selection is the engine that created the living world, what is the reason behind this opulence? Why does beauty even...

    As Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) said to the alien invaders near the beginning of Marvels Avengers: Infinity War, The earth is closed today! The world continues to respond to the current novel coronavirus pandemic by closing everything from churches, to restaurants, to movie theaters and many other public spaces in order to limit person-to-person interaction. While my own family practiced social distancing this past Sunday by watching a livestream of our pastor, we reflected on current events and the changes we are all making. We talked about having peace in the midst of trouble and the fact that God...

    Dinosaur DNA Found! February 28, 2020 | David F. Coppedge Deep-timers had a big enough problem with collagen and melanosomes. But DNA should be long gone. 75 million years? No way! Could this be the last straw? For two decades now, especially since 2005, creationists have been challenging deep-timers (those who believe life is hundreds of millions of years old, and earth is 4.5 billion years old) with dinosaur soft tissue. Secular reports have been coming in regularly about soft tissue in fossils: feathers, melanosomes, collagen, various proteins, and materials in dinosaur bones that look like stretchy blood vessels and...
