Scientists in embrace natural means for the cause of specialized information in the Universe likes to portray themselves above Christians and religious people in general. The reality is, many theories in science goes by faith. One rarely sees a theory in naturalism abandoned once falsified data is discovered even on a regular basis. Generally, the theory is only gets revised, sometimes many times over. This is because of the popularity of these particular theories have in secular science.
All branches of science have this problem, these examples come from one of my favorite subjects, astronomy…
The Multi-Universe hypothesis states that outside of our observable universe there is an undetermined amount of other universes. National Geographic claims there is new proof in detecting this idea…
“Dark flow” is no fluke, suggests a new study that strengthens the case for unknown, unseen “structures” lurking on the outskirts of creation…In 2008 scientists reported the discovery of hundreds of galaxy clusters streaming in the same direction at more than 2.2 million miles (3.6 million kilometers) an hour. This mysterious motion can’t be explained by current models for distribution of mass in the universe. So the researchers made the controversial suggestion that the clusters are being tugged on by the gravity of matter outside the known universe.”
There is a common argument leveled against creationists in this report, but used for to allegedly prove the muli-universe hypothesis. “This mysterious motion can’t be explained by current models…so researcher made the controversial suggestion” sound familiar? Creationists say, evolution can’t explain the origin of information nor the means to create specified information (like a computer program) to create DNA, therefore makes the conclusion it’s from intelligence, namely God! Looks like some secular scientists are hypocritical and hold to a double standard. There is a lot of evidence in various breaches of science which verifies creationism unlike the multi-universe hypothesis.
This is not all, an up and coming theory in terms of money and non-detectable data is focusing on building more detectors.
“The XENON100 detector is an instrumented vat, about the size of a stockpot — 12 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall — holding 220 pounds of frigid liquid xenon. It is, in effect, a traffic surveillance camera that can record the occasional, if very infrequent, collision between a dark matter particle and a xenon atom.”
Why is there such a push for detection of dark matter? Cosmologists require more dark matter than what is believed to be detected. How much is that alledged detection? Only 17 percent! How can this theory be called a fact when 83 percent of it hasn’t been detected? How much evidence constitutes a fact rather than an idea? Quite frankly, much of money used for trying to detect dark matter could be used for planetary exploration which is observable and we would learn much more from it.
Speaking of planets, the Dynamo Theory is another, one of which has been discussed briefly in this blog. After an attempt to justify this theory, phys.org reports…
“But scientists’ understanding of dynamo theory has been complicated by recent discoveries of magnetized rocks from the moon and ancient meteorites, as well as an active dynamo field on Mercury – places that were thought to have perhaps cooled too quickly or be too small to generate a self-sustaining magnetic field. It had been thought that smaller bodies couldn’t have dynamos because they cool more rapidly and are therefore more likely to have metallic cores that do not stay in liquid form for very long.”
This theory has long been falsified and should be abandon for a better theory that explains what we see but it only remains through revisions (fitting the data into a theory rather than the theory showing the data) because it still popular among secular scientists. More story telling with this theory because the theory requires it, “According to Weiss, the finding suggests that sustaining a magnetic field like the one on Earth might not require a large, cooling core that constantly moves liquid and creates currents, but could also be somehow generated by the cores of smaller bodies like planetesimals – some of which are only 160 kilometers wide.”
Noticed the word, “somehow” is used. Practicing stricter empirical science is rare these days because it restricts too much of their imagination which they use to tell the public that what they mean is “factual” rather than just an idea or complete guesswork on their part. Can science explain various undetectable data? The answer is “no” it cannot for how can one explain when it cannot be observe nor be understood? Data must be detected either directly or indirect in order for science to work and this is why it works better in creationism rather than evolution!
