New Ceres Data Defies 4.5 Billion Years

This has been and is going to continue to be a reoccurring theme! As we explore the solar system, Planetary scientists who believe in evolution are going to have to come up with new speculation on why the data is not confirming billions of years. Here is a prediction, when New Horizons passes by its next object in deep space, it too is going to discover youthful features that will surprise scientists much like Pluto did, much like other planets and moons did in our solar system.

So what is the new data which defies 4.5 billion years? Here take a look at this picture…

ceres bright-spots

You noticed bright spots on the surface. These bright spots on Ceres have stunned planetary scientists because of their implications. The bright spots as you see here are epsom salts which came from water-ice. Occator is the name of the crater where we see here the epsom salts. Planetary Scientists believe this crater is 80 million years old, however, the bright spots they say in their own words, “should not have lasted nearly that long.”  They are quite right, because you have a dwarf planet with no atmosphere, and over millions or even billions of years would have long gone. Water evaporates very rapidly with no atmosphere and what they say would be left is…“magnesium sulphate spots.” So if Ceres was that old, we wouldn’t be seeing what we are seeing today! But if Ceres is younger then what they say, these features are a confirmation rather than a data conflict! There is no doubt, the evidence suggests that Ceres is younger than its assumed old age.

Since this conflicts with planetary evolution, evolutionary scientists have to work on their story on how the impossible just happened before their eyes and then fit that back into their belief system. This is why it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does believing in God!  I love space exploration, I hope to see a lot more, these discoveries are very exciting and also a confirmation of creationism.

Specialized Genes Confirm Creationism

According to evolutionary theory, housekeeping genes are shared with other living things, because of common decent. Evolutionary theory suggests that tiny progressions will eventually lead to other living things. But as scientists sequence more genomes from different animals, they discover something which isn’t that friendly towards evolution and it’s been 20 years and counting for coming up with an explanation which would be more friendly toward evolution.

What scientists have been discovering within the genome project are specialized genes or best known as orphan genes. What is an orphan gene? An orphan gene has coding in it that is unique only to that animal and no other. These DNA sequences appear suddenly and fully functional without any trace of evolutionary ancestry. This is why I refer to it as “specialized”. It’s been a surprise for scientists who believe in evolution. Orphan genes are not easily discovered. It takes careful research because the genomic world is very massive. There is also no standardized method in which to use, so it varies from researcher to researcher.

Orphan genes are found in humans too, in fact there was a recent discovery which increased the differences between humans and chimps. Scientists found over 1300 orphan genes which are completely different between humans and chimps. It is possible they may find more as research techniques get better and covering more of the body. In this recent discovery, the focus for these orphan genes were found in the liver, heart, brain, and testes. In ants, researchers have found over 28,000 orphan genes that were specialized only for ants and not other insects.

While orphan genes cause more confusion in the theory of evolution, creationism on the other hand finds these discoveries intriguing because it helps to understand the patterns of genetic diversity related within a created kind. Creationism holds to the view that there are only variants within a kind but no kind changing into a totally different species which is what evolutionary theory claims. Such precise genetic arrangements are truly amazing!

Discovery of New Soft Tissue

Somebody call Dr Xiaoya Ma on the things which are possible in evolution and also on the things that are impossible in evolution! Why? Because she has galvanized the field of neuropaleontology!

Before we learn on how she galvanized the field of neuropaleontology let’s begin by introducing to my readers on who Dr Xiaoya Ma is. She is a NERC Research Fellow who works in the division of ES Invertebrates and Plants Palaeobiology. She has keen interest in researching Cambrian fossils in order to obtain more confusion about evolution, oops I mean to understand it. This presents a challenge for her because the animals found in the Cambrian have no evolutionary ancestors along with no new body parts having appeared since. Scientific American called the Cambrian fossils, ‘Evolutionary biology’s deepest paradox’.  And it is not getting any clearer for evolution, but confirming creationism even more.

Before 2005, no evolutionary scientist thought it was possible for soft organic tissue to survive for millions of years. Because they believed soft tissue could only survive a million years or less. So they didn’t bother looking for it, rather soft tissue was discovered by accident.  A young Tyrannosaurus rex contained proteins in its leg! A female researcher had been dissolving the fossil in acid when she made the discovery. Schweitzer who made the discovery, announced to the world there was blood vessels and structures that looked like whole cells inside of T. Rex’s bone! She took a lot of heat from this discovery, later on it was confirmed to be soft tissue. So how could a bone 68 million years old contain organic proteins (soft tissue)?

For creationism, the discovery presented no problems, in fact it confirms a young earth not billions of years old. So what did they come up with for an explanation to keep the bone millions of year old? Schweitzer suggested in 2013, that iron might be the cause of preservation of soft tissue found in T-Rex. The creationist model on preservation would be the flood where T-Rex was buried quickly which didn’t allow the usual characters to degrade it.

But you think a bone containing proteins that are assumed by evolutionists to be 68 millions years was something, you haven’t seen nothing yet which brings us back to Dr Xiaoya Ma!  In what is commonly called, the “Cambrian explosion” was discovered the unthinkable or the impossible for those who believe in evolution! It makes T-Rex’s discovery look like child’s play for trying to keep things old in the evolutionary framework when the evidence disagrees! You see, carbonized residues from a arthropod’s brain was discovered!  What is an arthropod? It’s an invertebrate animal with an “exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and jointed appendages. Arthropods form the phylum Arthropoda, and include the insects, arachnids, myriapods, and crustaceans.”

How does a fossil from the Cambrian explosion considered by evolutionists to be 520 million years old retain its brain? Doesn’t bioturbation, oxygen and bacteria degrade organic material that leads to its destruction? It is not possible for fossils that are supposedly 520 millions of years old to remain in one place with all the environmental changes which evolutionists believed happened over the span of many millions of years.

Let’s switch gears now, evolutionists believe this is an animal which lived 520 million years ago, what the comparison to the creatures of today?

“The F. protensa nervous system closely resembled that of modern mandibulates, which include insects and crustaceans; these similarities, the researchers claimed, suggested that the key characteristics of the group’s nervous system developed much earlier than previously thought.” (Nature, 490:258–61, 2012).

Dr Xiaoya Ma wasn’t finished yet, she is only just beginning. In 2014, she discovered ten more fossils with brains along with more body parts, “optic nerves”.

While these discoveries are not the latest, an article was brought to my attention about preservation of the brain. Here is the thing about evidence falsifying evolution, firstly…it’s impossible. Secondly…acceptance. Thirdly…Excitement. Neither of these shed’s more light for evolution, rather it just confuses more and more which is common with theories that are not true. But for creationists, we live in some unique times because we have more information that is totally amazing and mind-blowing which is glorifying to God about His creation than generations living before us!  And yet, this is only the beginning, there is so much more to learn!

Hawking’s Doom For Mankind

Cosmologist Stephen Hawking who is considered one of the smartest men in the world, who has attempted to disprove the existence of God by using various branches of evolution but failed,  he is now claiming mankind will doom the vast majority of his or her existence because we are in a rush to develop new technologies to improve our lives.

The wording in which he puts it sounds very similar to what environmental groups have been advocating for years and apparently Stephen Hawking believes in these groups. However, his solution to the manufactured problems is living in outer space. And since he predicts this won’t be possible for the next 100 years, something bad is going to happen because of mankind’s behavior.

What exactly mankind will do to wipe itself off the face of the planet? For one, Hawking mentions bio-engineering which is…

“…a discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology, and medicine — and improves human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.”

Hawking has a fear that mankind is going to invent genetically engineered viruses which will get loose among the population that it will eventually wipe out many people lives.

Second thing, Hawking suggests global warming due to mankind as the root cause will also play a part in man’s doom. His understanding on this issue is bias, the science doesn’t suggest it. Last December was the warmest on record in my locality, the record in which was broken happened in 1877, since then…emissions have increased but yet in 1877, emissions were a lot less and it still broke a record. And that record stood for a long time even with the environmental changes. You can discover this pattern of increased or decreased in emissions vs warming and cooling throughout history.

Third thing, Hawking mentions nuclear war, the last time mankind was on a possible brink of a nuclear war was the Cuban missile crisis back in the early 1960’s. Fear of nuclear war increased in the 80’s but has lost its luster after that. Dirty nukes are considered more of a threat than traditional ones. No country in the world is going to start a nuclear war with traditional weapons because you can destroy the earth many times over, there is no winner. However, having nuclear weapons means power.

This is not the first time Hawking has declared doom for mankind, he has warned the world about Al Robots massively killing humans (sounds like a Hollywood movie called, The Terminator) and aliens coming to earth in order to destroy us (sounds like a science fiction movie: War of the Worlds).

While Hawking is very smart at math, he is not that smart with evolution nor with his absurd predictions for mankind. While mankind faces major challenges; science, robots, historical warming and cooling of the earth is not one of them!

Storytelling Passes For Science

Welcome 2016, which there is great hope that it will bring forth even greater science discoveries than in 2015. However, storytelling will be on the increase this year as well. This blog has been a critic of telling a story then passing on as though it was a discovery in science which in fact it was not!

lava flowing

Take volcanoes for example. Volcanoes are amazing, huge gasses build up over time underground along with magma, eventually causes an explosion that spews rock and gas to the surface. Often times these events are dangerous to man but amazing to observe from a safe distance.

Live Science recently published one of the most absurd stories ever to be written on the supposed evolution of man’s intelligence. The story goes like this…

“Vast lava flows may have provided humans with access to heat and fire for cooking their food millions of years ago, one researcher has proposed.
That, in turn, would have enabled the evolution of human intelligence, Michael Medler, a geographer at Western Washington University, said at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union earlier this month.”

Keep in mind, living by a volcano is very dangerous. Lava is very hot and can reach up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. This is not something you want to be around because 150 degrees Fahrenheit can cause your lungs to stop functioning and as a result, you would be dead. 2,000 degrees would turn a human body into ash in no time.

Michael Medler is suggesting in his story using circular reasoning which he admits would be difficult to test, that because lava created fires and heat, this caused evolution in man’s intelligence. You can say this for a book, because humans have access to books caused supposed evolution in man’s intelligence. We know that books are designed by intelligence and depending upon content in the book, and the person, it does make them smarter. But is that evidence for intelligent design because one can learn from a book? Even if man learned how to cook from observing lava (which is not the case), it certainly would not be evidence that it’s evolution at work neither should this be called, “science”.

Many stories comes from bones, and often times are not testable to verify one’s theory in evolution. Michael Shermer whose book, “The Moral Arc” claims that evolution,  along with reason will lead humanity toward truth, justice and freedom. His piece which was published in Scientific American on Jan 1, 2016, was far from leading humanity toward truth. In fact, his article on the conduct of the Homo naledi bones were found in a South African cave was a mythical story that he himself had invented and was trying to pass it on to Scientific American readers as science, but it wasn’t based on any factual evidence.

Hawks who is a paleoanthropologist that has worked on the Homo naledi bones had called out Shermer on his mythical story. Here is what he says in his blog

“Extinct Human Species Commit Homicide?”. Shermer is a regular columnist and contributing editor of Scientific American and the editor of Skeptic magazine. He is widely recognized as a leader of the skeptic movement in the U.S.”

“Here’s a sentence summing up his idea of a violent fate for Homo naledi:

Whatever you call it—war or murder—it is violent death nonetheless, and further examination of the Homo naledi fossils should consider violence (war or murder for the adults, sacrifice for the juveniles) as a plausible cause of death and deposition in the cave. “War or murder for the adults, sacrifice for the juveniles.” Shermer conjures the Dinaledi Chamber in the bowels of an Aztec pyramid.”

“It doesn’t sound like the work of a skeptic. Shermer does not seem to have read our open access paper very carefully, because he seems completely oblivious to the evidence most relevant to his idea.”

The last paragraph sums up in a way, scientists who believe in evolution. The evidence says one thing, but become oblivious to it because it doesn’t agree with evolution. Such as fruit flies being mutated over 600 generations in the best environment possible and instead of becoming more open to evolutionary change, the fruit flies became more resistant and started going backwards which surprised many evolutionists. The evidence suggests that fruit flies cannot evolve into another species.

Here there was no violent markings on the bones and Shermer did what evolutionists normally do in a situation where reality doesn’t agree with them, they continue with their narrative as though it were fact, this is known in card playing as bluffing. This is why evolution is bad for science. This is why there was also a climategate, where leading advocates of scientists who believe that humans are responsible for global warming tried screwing a decline in temps to make it invisible to the public over a period of ten years because they want the public to think a certain way.

So one has to be careful when reading articles which are stories that are trying to be passed off as science.

Ceres Disproves Model

We are living in some exciting times, because we get to see things and learn about things in our solar system and the Universe in general which no man has seen or learned before! Do some of you remember the story about how the solar system was formed?  Those of you who went to public schools like myself were surely taught this, and those in private Christian or religious schools may have touched about this subject as well when discussing the differences between creationism and evolution.

Here is how the story was told in the text books in public schools as also told in nature

“4.5 billion years ago, the Solar System formed in a disk of gas and dust particles that surrounded the newly born Sun. The ‘giant’ planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) formed first, within the few million years of the disk’s lifetime. Closer to the Sun, the small, rocky ‘terrestrial’ planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) took tens of million years to form, by collisions of numerous smaller objects generated in the disk. Myriad small bodies formed the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.”

I’m sure that most of you remember that story when you were in school or currently are in school in the upper grades. Currently, the DAWN spacecraft’s mission was to gather data from the largest asteroid called, “Ceres” for the purpose of confirming such a story in order to gain more understanding but as it turned out that wasn’t the case.

Bright spots was discovered on Ceres and the data gathered by DAWN revealed it is mostly likely, salt. Here is another discovery

“Dawn has also found ammonia-rich clays on Ceres, a second Nature paper reports2. Ammonia is more common in the frigid outer Solar System than in the asteroid belt where Ceres reigns.”

Also…“Ceres occasionally sports a cloud of ice and dust within one of its largest craters.”  This was discovered by the DAWN last February  as it approached.

Like Pluto, it was discovered that Ceres is active. So what does this all mean? I’ll let the very first article which I quoted in nature answered that question.. “Despite decades of attempts, no computational realization of standard formation theories has reproduced the mass and orbital distribution of both the terrestrial planets and the asteroids.” 

This doesn’t mean space exploration is a waste of time, to the contrary. It’s these secular models which go nowhere in endless circles being disproved by direct evidence which gives secular scientists a lot of work to revise their story about how our solar system supposedly evolved that leads to no understanding. The more we learn about the solar system the more we learn how these models don’t work. And the reason for this is, our solar system did not evolve. It was intelligently designed by God.

We know the designer of the universe but does that mean we should not explore it and learn about it? No! You never read or see mainstream creation scientists or advocates talking against technology or space exploration. There is nothing anti-biblical learning about God’s created handy work! And there is nothing wrong about the evidence disproving these stories either! More on space exploration to come and more.

 

First Paper On Pluto Reveals More Complexity

“At 4.5 billion years old, scientists did not expect to find an active dwarf planet, but New Horizons captured a trove of evidence upending this belief.”

-ABC News

“The practice of declaring an unfalsifiable theory to be scientifically true is pseudoscience

-Philosopher of science Karl Popper’s scientific epistemology

When declaring an unfalsifiable theory in this case planet evolution is pseudoscience. The amazing discoveries which have been found so far are a prime example. Evolution always sounds better in story format because one can come up with all kinds of conclusions which are not necessarily true or on the right path, but when it comes to direct observations it is falsified.

The first paper reveals more complexity and a lesson on how a “belief” is in the process of trying to be rescued from evidence that contradicts it. You see scientists who believe in evolution assume or shall I say estimate that Pluto is currently 4.5 billion years old. Many of the secular scientists predicted that Pluto was way past its prime because of its assumed age, so they believed that Pluto would be nothing more than a cold and lifeless planet but still interesting to explore! When New Horizons flew by and was able to start downloading its data (currently only 15 percent has been downloaded so far) we find that the direct observations of Pluto was far from that! So says Alan Stern who is the principal scientist on the New Horizons project, “Finding that Pluto is geologically active after 4.5 billion years…there’s not big enough typeface to write that in.”

New Horizons was also able to capture some amazing data of Pluto’s moons which also doesn’t agree with the assumption of billions of years old. Nix and Hydra have bright surfaces, this presents a major problem for the belief in billions of years old because there is a lot going on externally such as radiation darkening, the transfer of darker material from Charon via impacts, impacts with dark Kuiper Belt meteorites. The evidence suggests youth not old age. It will to be interesting the various stories they will come up with to try to preserve billions of years old that defy common sense.

Pluto has 3-kilometre-high ice mountains, pretty spectacular!  This indicates that Pluto is geologically active, but this presents a major problem for the old age assumption once again, where is the energy that can be sustain over billions of years coming from to create these ice mountains? This is when the storytelling begins, you have one idea that suggests (with no evidence) that uranium is present on Pluto. What do you think is strange about this idea that considers radioactivity as the energy source that supposedly been working over billions of years? Well if the radioactivity is heating the plains why are the ice mountains which are next to it, not affected by it?  Here is an experiment for you, take a piece of ice and place it next to heat and see what happens, then you know I mean :)

The conclusions to keep it so old is not science rather just a belief that they think needs to be preserve otherwise the rest of their theory in other areas of evolution go down too. Pluto is not 4.5 billion years old! Neither are its moons! The new data coming in from New Horizons confirms the Bible more than planet evolution!
