There is a deeper issue here: science not by press conference but presented as an event. What in reality is a long, messy and convoluted process of three steps forward and two steps back is too easily presented as giant leaps between states of confusion and blinding revelation. At the heart of this theatre is the artificial landmark of a peer-reviewed paper. — Nature editorial 10/14/14 after spectacular cosmology flop
I’ve been reading the articles on this website for over a year, and I’m guilty of not showing any appreciation. You provide a great service. It’s one of the most informative and up-to-date resources on creation available anywhere. Thank you so much. Please keep up the great work. — a senior research scientist in Georgia
The plain fact, however, is that no truly consequential social, moral, or political problem – let alone those at the interpersonal level – has ever been solved within specialities that grant PhDs.... but an ethos has arisen that no problem is a real problem unless it admits to a solution reached by some specialized mode of attack. This is an extraordinary perspective... anything done by way of breaking things down into smaller pieces or reducing it is likely to render it less accessible even to the limited means available to us. — Dr. Daniel J. Robinson, The Great Ideas of Philosophy, Lecture 27
Who contributed more to the saving of human lives than any other scientist? Who has been called the greatest biologist of all time? Who revolutionized medicine and public health with his discoveries? A creationist and a Christian – Louis Pasteur. Let no one claim that faith in God is detrimental to science; you need look no further than to this great man who said, “The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the work of the Creator.”
Pasteur was a humble, godly Catholic who served God and his fellow man through science. If you enjoy milk that doesn’t spoil in a day, if you enjoy a wide variety of healthy foods, if you can take a quick shot and then live without fear of deadly diseases, if you enjoy a longer life than your ancestors did, you should thank the good doctor from France, because you owe much of your physical health and safety to him. But your ultimate thanks should go to the Great Physician, who taught the Israelites many principles of good health and sanitation in the Bible. Pasteur merely rediscovered and elaborated on two basic ideas from the Old Testament: (1) uncleanness causes disease, (2) life was created, and propagates after its kind. Pasteur’s discoveries sounded the death knell for centuries of evolutionary speculation.
How do you make glass that bends without breaking? Learn from a lowly sponge. Then look around for other ideas.
Evolutionists have been stewing over primordial soup for over a century, but origin-of-life research is still in the kitchen with empty kettles. Some new recipes are downright nutty.
Michael Ollove at the Baltimore Sun reports on a new exhibit at the U.S. Holocaust Museum entitled Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race. The exhibit shows a 1937 Nazi propaganda film that invokes the law of natural selection as support for weeding out the unfit. Ollove writes, The narrator declares that “we humans have sinned […]
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them. — Ecclesiastes 12:1
