New Science Legislation Passes In Tennessee

Last month, the Tennessee’s House of Representatives passed an academic freedom bill that would protect teachers and school districts who teach strengths and weaknesses of  evolution or climate change or human cloning.  The bill is basically the same type of language used in  the Louisiana Science Education Act which was passed in 2008.  Just like in 2008, we see the critics making similar claims much like they did in 2008…The Tennessean which sounds like it sold out to special interests says…

“Almost 90 years ago, Tennessee became a national laughingstock with the Scopes trial of 1925, when a young teacher was prosecuted for violating a state law forbidding the teaching of evolution. With the passage of two bills, House Bill 368 and Senate Bill 893, the Tennessee legislature is doing the unbelievable: attempting to roll the clock back to 1925 by attempting to insert religious beliefs in the teaching of science.

“These bills, if enacted, would encourage teachers to present the “scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses” of “controversial” topics such as “biological evolution, the chemical origins of life, global warming, and human cloning.” As such, the bills are misleading, unnecessary, likely to provoke unnecessary and divisive legal proceedings, and likely to have adverse economic consequences for the state.”

“In 2005, a local school district in Pennsylvania wound up paying over $1 million in a lawsuit over a policy that recommended creationism to its students. Recently, a teacher in Ohio who taught creationism after being instructed by his district not to do so was fired — but the administrative cost of firing him and defending the district against related lawsuits was in excess of $1 million.”

Special interest groups and certain well known atheists argued against the Louisiana Science Education Act back in 2008. Since that time, special interests (like this one) have been trying to repeal the law. They even have a kid on MSNBC last year who was demanding that creationists show the facts. Sadly, creationism cannot be taught in public schools in a fair way, it is also against the law to teach it in public school so his demand of creationists was nothing more than building up a straw man to knock down.

Besides there are science theories that get revised, why? Because they have weaknesses! Otherwise no revision is required! Evolution is no exception! So laws like the Louisiana Science Education Act is not replacing evolution with creationism, although science can be taught without evolution or creationism or intelligent design but it allows teaching science in a traditional way.

Science News From Interesting to Way Out There

In the evolutionary framework, natural selection for the most part selects the best. But nature demonstrates otherwise. Pretending to be a dangerous, they species are harmless and their bluff is far from perfect, yet it is quite effective.  Evolutionary biologists call it a great example of evolution in action. However, the species perform mimics that are poor as a result, they say their supposed emergence remains something of a puzzle.

Many explanations have been invented to explain these imperfect mimics.  The best mimics happen to be the biggest while smaller species are very successful with imperfect ones. Since that is the case, evolutionists claim that natural selection proclaims it to be sufficient enough! Like many of these studies is it demonstrating upward evolution or just variants within a kind? Variants within a kind which isn’t evolution because those variants are not turning into another species.

Next is an invented explanation to fill in a gap about the behavior of gravity which is believed to be no enough to keep the Universe together, so dark matter was invented. Now scientists work on discovering it directly costing billions of dollars. Here is what science daily writes on one of more recent studies…

“There’s more to the cosmos than meets the eye. About 80 percent of the matter in the universe is invisible to telescopes, yet its gravitational influence is manifest in the orbital speeds of stars around galaxies and in the motions of clusters of galaxies. Yet, despite decades of effort, no one knows what this “dark matter” really is.”

“Many scientists think it’s likely that the mystery will be solved with the discovery of new kinds of subatomic particles, types necessarily different from those composing atoms of the ordinary matter all around us. The search to detect and identify these particles is underway in experiments both around the globe and above it.”

Regardless if dark matter exists or not doesn’t really have any effect on the creationist model, but it seems after decades of research reveal that scientists are no closer t knowing what they are looking for.  Job security?

“Instead of analyzing the results for each galaxy separately, the scientists developed a statistical technique — they call it a “joint likelihood analysis”…”An important element of this work is that we were able to take the statistical uncertainties from an updated study of the dwarf stellar motions and factor it into the LAT data analysis,” said Johann Cohen-Tanugi, a physicist at the Laboratory of the Universe and Particles at the University of Montpellier 2 in France and a member of the research team.”

In another discovery, maturity found in our backyard. Back in the 90’s the Hubble stunned scientists when it viewed mature galaxies in deep space, where they thought they would find younger stars.  Now another observation reported by MSNBC is falsifying the “big bang theory”…

“Astronomers have discovered a planetary system that formed nearly 13 billion years ago, suggesting the early universe harbored more planets than has been thought. The system consists of a star called HIP 11952 and two Jupiter-like alien planets. It is just 375 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Cetus (the Whale). The planets are likely the oldest yet found; at 12.8 billion years old, they’re just 900 million years younger than the universe itself, according to the commonly accepted Big Bang theory.”

Increasing complexity in a theory is never a good thing in a traditional practice of the scientific method. The Earth has been labeled as 4.5 billion as well as the rest of our solar system by evolutionists now only 375 years away from us, there is a planetary system that supposedly formed 13 billion years ago.  Some who believe in those time frames along with the big bang suspect the measurement for this discovery is not accurate and will eventually correct itself.

On the contrary, you will see many invented explanations that will attempt to explain such complexity while increasing the overall complexity of the theory itself much like Darwinian evolution.  There is much going on in other areas of science that these people are wasting tons of taxpayer’s money with their beliefs.

Forward, No Backward, No Sideways: Snake Evolution

Hind legs reported on snake fossils says, MSNBC. This seems to support the idea in the evolutionary story that snakes descended from lizards, and lost their legs through evolution.  Eupodophis descouensi is said to have .8 inch legs with ankle bones but no feet or toes. The evidence here requires imagination, because clearly they were not used for walking.

This new discovery raising some questions, or rather raises the level of complexity in the story of evolution. If the oldest known fossil snake which is assumed to be 94 to 112 million years and this discovery was dated with the assumption of 90 million years, it’s going in the opposite direction or is it just an illusion? “If something is not useful it can regress without any impact on the (animal’s) survival, or regression can even be positive, as for here if the leg was disturbing a kind of locomotion, like for burrowing snakes or swimming snakes.”

But why would useless structures remain 4 to 22 million years? However, researchers tells us that the puzzle of the evolutionary story will not be solved in 10 years rather it may be solved one day with various teams working on it.

It still remains a mystery on whether or not the leg loss was an increase of genetic information, or in fitness. For example, flightless birds are adapted for their land-based habitats, but it would be a notch higher for birds to evolve from ground to air than the other way around. Perhaps research teams are still working on this part of the story.

Evolutionists are clueless about not only their own theory of common ancestry, but the old-age framework as well. Many reports come out all the time with more puzzles which increases speculation than increasing real knowledge with a singing praise to the evolutionary story.  But it’s not reality. Rather than spending a ton of hard earned money on trying to figure out the myth of snake evolution which has no ending, what about putting that amount of money and energy into things like biomimetics?

There are all kinds of great research going on in this area! Research teams are needed because they haven’t come close to doing what a ATP synthase, or a flagellum, mother-of-pearl, or a ribosome or even a dragonfly wing has been doing now for millennia.

It incorporates engineering concepts that eventually will lead to something that will benefit mankind like human health, and technology which will be useful when they gain knowledge about the engineering of nature designed by God. As far as research in Darwinism: Go forward? No, backwards? No, sideways? Answer: No snake evolution or any Darwinian evolution for that matter!
