    A week after an Oklahoma university refused to let a popular Christian speaker give a presentation on creation on campus, the school has had a sudden change of heart after facing a firestorm of controversy over its initial decision. Ken Ham, the founder of the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter attractions, was scheduled to give a speech next month at the University of Central Oklahoma entitled "Genesis and the State of the Culture." School officials rescinded his invitation after facing pressure from an LGBT group on campus opposing Ham's March 5 appearance. Now, it seems like the event is back...

    The president and founder of Kentucky’s Creation Museum in Petersburg and the Ark Encounter in Williamstown has been dropped as a speaker at the University of Central Oklahoma after a LGBT group objected. Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, had been scheduled to speak March 5 at the public university in Edmond, Okla. Stockton Duvall, student body president at the university, took responsibility for the decision to rescind Ham’s invitation after learning of the opposition to his visit. Duvall told The Oklahoman newspaper that a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning group opposed Ham’s visit because of his view...

    Two trees, one root: the link between evolutionism and Eastern spirituality by Tricia Wright Published: 13 February 2018 (GMT+10) Looking at today’s once-Christian ‘Western’ society, one sees two non-Christian worldviews growing like long-established trees, stretching their branches into everything from education, to the media, to the church. One tree is materialism, the belief that matter is all there is, firmly based on and intertwined with Darwinian evolution. Its canopy bears the dark fruits which stem from morality without a Creator (and thus Lawgiver).1 Alongside it a second tree is thriving: Eastern spirituality. With its alluring blossoms promising enlightenment, health and...

    Creation vs Evolution: The Bombardier Beetle Challenge February 8, 2018 | David F. Coppedge Bombardier beetles made the news again this week. Creation scientists have long used them to challenge evolutionary theory. Can the Darwinians fight back? Watch a funny video on National Geographic of a barfing toad. The toad made the mistake of sneaking up on a bombardier beetle and snatching it with its tongue before the beetle could fire its weapons. It’s not hard to imagine what happened inside the toad’s stomach, because a few minutes later, the toad gags and vomits out the beetle, practically turning its...

    Dinosaur and Mammal Tracks Found Together February 1, 2018 | David F. Coppedge In what is being called the mother lode of Cretaceous tracks, mammals, dinosaurs and pterosaurs left their prints in a table-sized rock. Of all places: at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, a property representing the cutting edge of human technology, dinosaurs left their mark. Ray Stanford was dropping off his wife at work when he noticed an unusual rock outcrop. As an amateur paleontologist, he looked and saw a dinosaur track, so he began digging. Soon he had an 8′ x 3′ slab of rock that...
  • Oldest fossils ever found show life on Earth began before 3.5 billion years ago

    Science Daily ^ | 18 Dec 17 | University of Wisconsin-Madison Researchers
    Researchers at UCLA and the University of Wisconsin-Madison have confirmed that microscopic fossils discovered in a nearly 3.5 billion-year-old piece of rock in Western Australia are the oldest fossils ever found and indeed the earliest direct evidence of life on Earth. An example of one of the microfossils discovered in a sample of rock recovered from the Apex Chert, a rock formation in western Australia that is among the oldest and best-preserved rock deposits in the world. The fossils were first described in 1993 but a 2017 study published by UCLA and UW-Madison scientists used sophisticated chemical analysis to confirm...

    American Thinker.com ^ | September 26, 2017 | James Clinton
    In his August 1954, Scientific American article, "The Origin of Life," Nobel Prize winning Harvard Biologist George Wald stated, "One only has to contemplate the magnitude of this task to concede that the spontaneous generation of a living organism is impossible. Yet here we are as a result, I believe, of spontaneous generation." What is "the magnitude of this task" that reasonably renders a natural origin of life "impossible?" Dr. Wald states, "In the vast majority of processes in which we are interested the point of equilibrium lies far over toward the side of dissolution. That is to say, spontaneous...

    Creation Evolution Headlines ^ | 12/02/2017 | by Jerry Bergman, PhD
    I have written three rather lengthy books about discrimination against scientists who dared to question the validity of Darwinism, more commonly known as Darwin Dissidents.[1] C.S. Lewis predicted that Darwinists would become totalitarians when he was alive, and history has proved him correct.[2] One recent case is that of the distinguished paleontologist, Dr. GĂĽnter Bechly, a world expert on fossil insects, who was forced to resign [a tactful way to say he was fired] as curator for the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart, Germany. Then, as a result, he was censored from Wikipedia. The editors at Wikipedia attempted...

    November 22, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Charles Manson Was an Evolutionist Few Darwinians would condone murder, of course, but the Manson case shows what can happen to someone who puts their faith in the teachings of Darwin and his disciples. Well, after 45 years in prison for the heinous murders he instigated, Charles Manson has finally met his Maker. Many in the public have held a kind of horrified fascination for the cult hero whose “Manson family” shocked the world in 1969 with some of the bloodiest, cruelist, most senseless murders known up to that time. How many who...

    November 15, 2017 | David F. Coppedge Darwinians Baffled that Students Refuse To Be Indoctrinated Evolutionists have had complete domination of public school science for decades. They can’t believe that a sizable percentage still don’t accept evolution. Ryan Dunk at Syracuse University is dumbfounded. He said on his blog last September, Despite over a half century of education reforms aimed at better science instruction, nearly 40 percent of Americans reject the overwhelming scientific evidence for evolution. In both articles, Dunk commits numerous logical fallacies and propaganda tactics as if taken right out of the NCSE talking points:

    Skin Color Research Confirms Biblical Narrative by Jeffrey P. Tomkins, Ph.D. * People over the ages have placed great emphasis on race and skin color. Eugenicist-minded Darwinists have used it as the basis for much ill-conceived mischief.1 Even Darwin himself proposed that darker-skinned human populations were more primitive. However, we now know that all people groups share the same basic genome comprised of a well-documented set of common genetic variants. Darwin was mistaken—no people group is more primitive than another.

    Old-earth advocates often claim that dating methods, including radiocarbon, show the earth must be older than the Bible says. But is this true? This chart reflects the radiocarbon that still lingers inside 60 carbon-containing Earth materials collected from representative rock layers. Each result confronts millions-of-years age assignments for those layers.

    The Big Bang never happened and our universe may have no beginning and no end, suggests a new theory by physicists, including one of Indian-origin. The theory applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity and may also account for dark matter and dark energy. The widely accepted age of the universe, as estimated by general relativity, is 13.8 billion years. In the beginning, everything in existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point, or singularity. Only after this point began to expand in a "Big Bang" did the universe officially begin. Although the...

New Scientist declared in bold print, “Distant dwarf planet near Pluto has a ring that no one expected.” Reporter Ken Croswell, however, never explains why it was unexpected to find a prominent ring around the dwarf planet Haumea, located about 2 billion miles beyond the orbit of Pluto. When surprised by something that shouldn’t last for billions of years around a body smaller than Pluto, one strategy astronomers employ is to...

    The ‘Great Unconformity’ and associated geochemical evidence for Noahic Flood erosion by Harry Dickens The Bible’s Flood account describes the greatest rain event ever recorded. Forty days and nights of rain falling on the earth (Genesis 7:12) would have caused immense denudation of landmasses around the globe. Evidence for this is provided by a key stratigraphic surface and by associated geochemical signatures. Nature and extent of the ‘Great Unconformity’ The term ‘Great Unconformity’ was originally used to describe the prominent stratigraphic surface exposed in the Grand Canyon that separates the Lower Cambrian Tapeats Sandstone (of the Sauk cratonic sequence) from...

    Neanderthal Racism Continues October 11, 2017 | David F. Coppedge The evidence shows that Neanderthals were fully human, having shared genetic information with us. Why, then, do Darwin Supremacists continue to treat them as “other” than human? One clear case (among many) where paleoanthropologists have been totally wrong has been in the classification of Neanderthals as a separate species, Homo neanderthalensis. As pointed out before, this amounts to a case of historical racism. For years, there have been growing signs that these ancient humans were just as intelligent as modern humans. The clincher in the last few years, though, is...

    The uniformitarian puzzle of mountaintop planation surfaces by Michael J. Oard Planation surfaces are a common feature across the earth.1,2 But secular researchers often find these surfaces perplexing because it is not unusual to find them at the top of rugged mountains (figure 1): “Extensive tracts of low-gradient topography in steep mountain ranges, either forming rangetop plateaus or terraced pediments on range flanks are widely distributed in mountain belts around the world.”3 Calvet et al.’s survey of these flat-topped mountains establishes their frequency across the globe.3 Calvet et al. also point out that they are even found atop some of...

Coppedge Original Dinosaur Egg Pigments Found Add this to your dinosaur soft tissue collection: eggshell pigment proteins that allowed scientists to tell the eggs were blue. Eggs of an oviraptorid dinosaur found in China are still blue and red from the original pigment. Bob Yirka reports the find in Phys.org: The team reports that theirs was the first effort to seriously study color in dinosaur eggs. It came about after the team noted some Heyuannia huangi fossilized eggs that had a bluish tint—researchers had previously assumed the tint was due to mineralization, but the...

    We are made from stretched quantum fluctuations. At least that’s cosmologists’ currently most popular explanation. According to their theory, the history of our existence began billions of years ago with a – now absent – field that propelled the universe into a phase of rapid expansion called “inflation.” When inflation ended, the field decayed and its energy was converted into radiation and particles which are still around today.
