Darwinism as a Drug
It’s an upper like laughing gas that makes the user act silly.
It’s a sedative like soma that depresses the sense of responsibility.
Responsible citizens who know the history and dark side of Darwinism can feel discouraged at today’s DODO and DOPE culture, but there’s a bright side. One can get some entertainment out of it by watching the evolutionists make fools of themselves. It’s a bit like watching a drunkard stumbling around singing ‘How Dry I Am.’ Just don’t let kids watch; it’s rated R for Ridiculous.
Evolution has structured flies with an energy-efficient olfactory system (UC San Diego). To Darwinians, explaining complex interconnected systems is a cinch. Just say it evolved, take a Darwin soma pill and don’t think about it.
The distinctive smell of a flower… the unmistakable aroma of coffee… the dangers linked with inhaling smoke fumes. Sensory systems have evolved to provide us with immediate, finely tuned information about the world around us, whether they are colors processed through our visual system or certain pitches interpreted through our hearing.
Supermountains controlled the evolution of life on Earth (Australian National University). Yes, ladies and gentlemen; mountains made us what we are today – not because humans got fitter climbing them, but because the rise of mountains put “selection pressure” on our ancestors to evolve big brains. It was an emergency. Emergence; see?
Co-author Professor Jochen Brocks said: “What’s stunning is the entire record of mountain building through time is so clear. It shows these two huge spikes: one is linked to the emergence of animals and the other to the emergence of complex big cells.”
When the mountains eroded they provided essential nutrients like phosphorous and iron to the oceans, supercharging biological cycles and driving evolution to greater complexity.
Humans and other primates have evolved less sensitive noses (Public Library of Science, via Phys.org). Evolutionary scientists figured this out by asking participants to sniff armpits. No kidding.
In a new study [prepare to be hoodwinked], researchers screened the genomes of 1,000 Han Chinese people to find genetic variations linked to how the participants perceived 10 different scents. Then they repeated the experiment for six odors in an ethnically diverse population of 364 people to confirm their results. The team identified two new receptors, one that detects a synthetic musk used in fragrances and another for a compound in human underarm odor.
Described a new large titanosaurian dinosaur from the Pyrenees (Autonomous University of Barcelona). Leave it to evolutionists to feel giddy when their ideas are falsified. Evolution is supposed to make animals on islands smaller (the island dwarfism hypothesis). Well, check out this giant dinosaur that flourished on land near Spain that was an island during the Cretaceous.
It is precisely the size of this giant [that is] one of the most surprising facts to researchers. “Titanosaurs from the Upper Cretaceous of Europe tend to be small or medium-sized due to their evolution in insular conditions”, explained Bernat Vila, paleontologist at the ICP leading the research. During the Upper Cretaceous (between 83 and 66 million [Darwin] years ago), Europe was a large archipelago made up of dozens of islands. The species that evolved there tend to be relatively small, or even dwarves compared to their relatives living in large landmasses, due primarily to the limitation of food resources in islands. “It is a recurring phenomenon in the history of life on Earth, we have several examples worldwide in the fossil record of this evolutionary trend. That’s why we were astonished by the large dimensions of this specimen”, said Vila.
Sunflowers’ Bee-Attracting Ultraviolet also Helps Retain Moisture (The Scientist). Whenever you find a good match between two organisms who help each other, all you have to say is evolution did it. Why? Evolution is smart!
“It shows how smart evolutionary adaptation can be, to use the same trait to do two very different things that are both very important for the plant,” Marco Todesco, a plant geneticist at the University of British Columbia and lead author of the study, tells The Scientist.
New research on magnetite in salmon noses illuminates understanding of sensory mechanisms enabling magnetic perception across life (Oregon State University). Evolution is a magician with magnetism. Bacteria can evolve ways to do magic tricks with magnets and teach it to salmon, complete with instructions on how to make the brain know how to use it. In fact, meditating on evolution leads to further visions of magical emergence of complex systems like mitochondria (where ATP synthase originated by the Stuff Happens Law) and migration in salmon.
The process for sharing them across animal life may have been similar to the evolution of mitochondria, which control how animals release energy. Mitochondria originated in bacteria and were then transferred to other organisms, he said.
Understanding the evolutionary history of magnetite is a step toward further pinpointing the underlying process, the researchers said. Banks, Bellinger and colleagues would next like to test their new understanding and associated markers to further address the mystery of why and how some life forms have well-tuned tools for long and precise migratory strategies.
Details of the ATP Synthase molecular motors in mitochondria can be seen in CMI’s animation of its rotary action that produces three ATP molecules as it spins up to 6,000 RPM. Details of salmon migration can be seen in Illustra Media’s documentary Living Waters.
Evolutionists act like drunkards to think such things as mitochondria just “emerged” by chance. How can anybody believe such folly? The answer is that there is a spiritual battle going on. Evolutionists are determined to suppress the knowledge of God which is written in their hearts and in the observations of the world. “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:18-22). Watch the ATP synthase animation, then look at the figure below and read the caption (see 17 Aug 2011 for more details). To think this all evolved is like imagining a Ferrari oozing up out of the pavement.
