Calendar: from 360 to 365

When did human beings adopt a 365-day year? Why does a circle have 360 degrees in it? What does one question have to do with the other? The answer has to do with the Global Flood, and how that Flood forced a change in the calendar, long after it happened. Continue reading

Gravity waves – not so fast

Three months and two days ago, John Kovacs and his team boasted before the world they had found the signature of gravity waves in deep space. This, they said, proved the long-held theory of spatial inflation, the key event in the Big Bang. Now at last they published their findings. And they have to admit they might have it completely wrong. Continue reading

Feathered Frenzy

Feathered Frenzy

“Honest observation, through paleontology and the coalition of fossils, serves great evidence that extensive compromise has been composed to the research based solely upon imaginative macro evolution alone.”

Children all over the world in various schools are taught that approximately 150 MYA (million years ago) a Dinosaur reptilian-like lizard or amphibian of sorts, slowly evolved into the bird. Continue reading

Giant impact not proven

A team of isotope geologists now say they have definitive proof that a giant impactor, four and a half billion years ago, struck the earth and formed the moon. What they’ve found does not convince even every conventional scientist. A leading creation scientist says this new finding does not change his own conclusion: the giant impact hypothesis is unworkable, and the recent finding is further evidence of his own theory. Continue reading

Ex nihilo: out of nothing

Since Einstein unsuccessfully spent the last 30 years of his life looking for it, Grand Unification Theory (GUTs) has remained the golden fleece of physics. GUTs requires that the small and large forces of physics must not conflicti. It is believed that resolving the conflict of these forces will most likely lie in understanding and developing string physics. As significant as the future discovery of GUTs or the development of string physics may be, it will only lead to another question: how did something come out of nothing? It is the understanding of how the organization of energy existing in a zero point vacuum (referred to as Zero-Point Energy or ZPE) ultimately transitions into matter and information that needs to be understood.

Peer review potential and peril

Almost without fail, any critic of creation science will utter the phrase peer review to suggest creation science has no merit. The premise: only by peer review can any scientist be sure he is reading something truly important, and not insubstantial junk. True enough, some men claiming to be scientists, do not follow the scientific method as closely as they should. But sometimes “peer review” can become a means to exclude new ideas, whether they have merit or not. So lack of “peer review” does not necessarily deny merit to a new idea. Continue reading

Evolution: shouldn’t Eskimos grow fur?

As a Creationist I tend to watch and read more secular material than most might expect. There is a good reason for this. Usually the secular material provides me with the best arguments against Evolution imaginable – and on many occasions, the material provides me with a good laugh as well. While watching a few minutes of the History Channel’s program entitled The Big History of Everything, a few interesting questions shot through my mind along with a few chuckles. Continue reading
