Real Science talk
On this site, you will find many of the writings of John Davison. He was a highly distinguished and eminently qualified scientist in biology who spent his entire professional life battling against the encroachment of Atheism into the biological fields of science.
John passed away Thursday, 5/3/2012.
Goodbye, my friend.
The world is diminished at your passing.
A bill has passed both houses here in TN that will PROTECT teachers from lawsuits for teaching the TRUTH about Common Descent (it is a THEORY, not a fact) and Global Warming (It has QUIT warming some years ago).
Up until now, if a teacher mentioned any of the multitude of problems with these two theories, a bevy of ACLU attorneys would descend upon the school district, and the threat of huge legal fees would cause the school to muzzle the teacher.
When Governor Halsam signs this bill, our teachers will have protection!
Here is yet another article written by someone who has bought into the lie that Evolution, as the source of all life on the planet, is a scientific fact!!
NO ONE DENIES Evolution is a fact -
THOUSANDS OF SCIENTISTS deny Common Descent, though, and THAT is what is in controversy -
Atheist evolutionists are purposefully causing this confusion!
This site was checked by Archaeologists from the University of Chicago in the 60's, and dismissed as a cemetery. Then in the 90's, it was discovered to be much more than that. It turned out to be a temple. A VERY OLD temple. In fact, it pre-dates Stonehenge by 6000 years.
National Geographic, in their excellent treatment of this site, said it changes the entire way we view the development of our civilization; previously, it was thought that hunter-gatherers developed agriculture, then gathered into cities and developed civilization, then developed religion. But the temple at Gobekli Tepe predates all of that; it was built before humans had left the hunter-gatherer stage! It shows that FIRST came religion, THEN came civilization.
And the construction of it is also fascinating. It was re-built several times, but each time by poorer craftsmen; the first temple was the the finest, and the last was the poorest. It appears that skilled craftsmen were dropped into the un-populated world and built a temple, then subsequent generations lost those skills over time.
Let's see - as Bible believers, is there a story in scripture about civilized and skilled people being placed in the middle of an un-populated wilderness with no trace of human habitation, and first constructing a place to worship?
Genesis 8:18-20 (KJV)
18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.
20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
The ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat - present day Turkey.
And the location of Gobekli Tepe?
Modern day Turkey - -
I just read a fascinating article about the African Crested Rat, Lophiomys imhausi. This little creature is immune to the sap of the Poison Arrow tree, which kills virtually every other creature on the planet. The rat, as if KNOWING it is immune, chews the bark of this tree. Then, again as if KNOWING, it slobbers on its sides to coat them with this poison. When attacked, the rat turns it.s side to the attacker and freezes in place.
One bite is all they get.
You choose; is this design or random chance evolution?
How many thousands of years were the jungles littered with the bodies of rats that chewed all the OTHER poisonous plants, looking for the single one that it had evolved an immunity to?
How many others died because they spread the poison on their heads, where the first bite would kill them instantly, thus removing any survival advantage this genetic makeup might afford?
