A List of Ways Darwinism and Materialism Hold Back Science

March 23, 2014

Darwinian evolutionary dogma (and other materialist assumptions about the universe) has held science back in at least the following ways:

* Not looking for C14 in dinosaur bones and diamonds for the same reason.

* Natural selection/survival of fittest ideas affecting fishing, hunting, conservation.

* Tonsils being unnecessarily removed.

* Spinal curvature assumptions.

* “Junk” DNA not being studied.

* Treatment of Ota Benga, Aborigines, racist implications of evolution.

* Aryan supremacy (ultimately inbreeding).

** Today “Lysenkoism” is mostly debunked, but it not only confused science in the old Soviet Union¬† (and I’ll betcha research would uncover some big influences in the USA too). It resulted in mass starvation in the USSR too.

** From wikipedia on “Vestigiality”, there is a paragraph (180 “vestigial organs” in the Scopes Trial!):

In 1893, Robert Wiedersheim published a list of 86 human organs that were, in his words, “formerly of greater physiological significance than at present”. Theorizing that they were vestiges of evolution, he called them “vestigial”.[10] Since his time, the function of some of these structures has been discovered, while other anatomical vestiges have been unearthed, making the list primarily of interest as a record of the knowledge of human anatomy at the time. Later versions of Wiedersheim’s list were expanded to as many as 180 human “vestigial organs”. This is why the zoologist Horatio Newman said in a written statement read into evidence in the Scopes Trial that “There are, according to Wiedersheim, no less than 180 vestigial structures in the human body, sufficient to make of a man a veritable walking museum of antiquities.”[11]

[These “vestigial structures” have ALL been proven to have currently important function for the human body. You can survive without some of them, but you can also survive without one of your arms, tooQ

In this entry wikipedia quotes Darwin on the subject, and some of those quotes look like a good logical foundation for Lysenkoism.

** Mendel’s experiments with inheritance of traits (probably) neglected. (Disproves Lysenko too)

** Belief in abiogenesis would make for misdirection in research into microbiology.

** Moronic assumptions about how human engineers would design a human body better, no doubt still warping biology studies (and students). (Like how they would assemble a human eye. -The fool says he could do better than God-)

** Wasting a (private donation to Harvard) of a million dollars to study how life came from non-life.

** The suppression of proven real good scientists like Forest Mims who embarrassed the entire NASA staff with his $300 of instruments for family research.
==> And other such blacklistings of guys with good credentials.

** Censorship of smack-on predictions based on blacklisted creationists, like Russ Humphreys’ calculations for magnetic field strength of the outer gas giants.

** Censorship of phenomena contrary to Darwinian and long-age physics predictions, like Halton Arps’ catalog of “peculiar galaxies”. It was suppressed until some Berkeley materialist believers wrote about it.

** History censorship, such as Isaac Newton’s own declarations about #1 why he did science (to inspire faith in young men), #2 why science works, and so on.

** The delay (and still suppressed media) in discovery of the statistically “quantized” distribution of red shift measurements, meaning that according to the supposed red shift-distance relationship, all the distant objects “look like” they roughly “cluster together” in concentric spheres with a relative apparent center on the Earth.

** The “apparent” physical and structural orientation of the earth’s local cosmic neighborhood that centers on the Earth. <<== This one even appeared in a Wired Magazine article. The writer went to some museum that had set up a 3-D structure with the astronomical neighborhood of galaxies surrounding the Earth. He said he was struck by this apparent orientation to Earth.

** It’s finally leaking into non-Creationist venues, but Russ Humphrey’s observation about the universe’s apparent centering on our own “neighborhood” of the universe.

** The ongoing refusal to research into what one native African tribe calls “mokele-membe”.

* Archaeology: The neglect of the Ica Stones, the carvings at Angkor (Cambodia temple), and other such things. There are more than one images of dinosaurs at that temple that was built in the 12th or 13th century. One touristy web page says there’s only one, but there are more:
http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/dinosaur-angkor-wat

* PILTDOWN MAN. -> When the Internet was still young, a self-identified “evolutionary biologist” called me an unmitigated liar for saying Piltdown man was a hoax.

* Hoeckel’s fraudulent drawings still used today in high school biology textbooks, with some very serpentine disclaimer language. (They were offered straight up to my own kids in the 1990s and past Y2K too).

More Darwinian Follies…

February 25, 2011

Good examples of misinformation and information gaps repeated ad nauseum to confuse the gullible:

See here an example of backwards logic: “The ‘Hobbit were diseased humans’ argument is a long way from proven, yet you deploy it like its been settled.”

Turn that around. The point was and is that the Hobbit was treated as a glorious missing link until oops, what about this, what about that, and some of them said it was consistent with “diseased humans”. Except I think it is just another example of short people, like the Pygmies in Africa.

They are in danger of being eaten –literally– out of existence right now in Africa, as Christianity gets pushed back and the old paganism recovers. They are now regarded as animals by warring tribes around them, “missing links” you might say.

Christian missionaries are leading the charge to save them from their persecutors.

“Nested heirarchies of organisms” are a natural corollary of both functionality, using the same building blocks for survival and propagation of life –DNA, proteins, and all that.

It’s telling that evolutionist logic can get “convergent evolution” when the functionality doesn’t fit the hierarchies, but cannot see functional convergence as a natural attribute of design.

Claims that the “fossils show a continuum of features from the past to the present” only serve to expose the abysmal state of science education, and the attack on true science that the Darwinian religious beliefs represent.

…Noah’s…would expect to see a uniform distribution of animal types across the world, originating as they did from one release point somewhere in the middle east…

LOL. Another example of a belly-laughing demonstration of selective logical circuits, who don’t know how to apply the principles they use elsewhere to this one. There are major campaigns on to save ecologies endangered from the introduction of alien species, as we speak.

They brag about how fast a peppered moth goes from white to black to white, but fast radiated breeding and natural selection works for your theory you see it at work here too.

Here you go, a YOUNG-Earth creationist who explains how the marsupials and exotic animals of Australia show consistency with the idea of descent from their non-marsupial counterparts:

http://www.nwcreation.net/articles/marsupial_migration.html

The various kinds of animals in Australia line up with the kinds of animals elsewhere, suggesting common descent from those animals’ ancestors, rather than a common marsupial ancestor. This is one of Darwinians’ favorite toys in their grab bag: “convergent evolution” based on conditions in Australia.

Stephen Gould has admitted that the fossils show no continuum of anything at all, where it counts. There are no mammals with feathers, but neither do you have anything at all between reptiles and birds, and the showcase ‘examples’ of one or two break down to plainly one or the other on examination.

Here is the Biblical description of DNA in fact:

Psalms 139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

How many lines of evidence form nature corroborate your bible’s account?

Plenty. There’s the above verse describing DNA. Others describe the effect of a nearby nuclear explosion on human flesh in a future prophecy, the vast currents, or “rivers”, in the oceans (at a time when Greeks were saying the oceans were generally calm and shallow), they hydrologic cycle, and don’t forget an amazing set of rules for scientific hygiene in food preparation and treatment of diseases. The “stretching out” of the heavens.

Looks like none to me.

Well, Jesus healed the blind who accepted faith in him, and he can heal you too.

Its embarrassing to watch.

Yes, like Muggeridge predicted, [Darwinian] evolution will be seen soon enough as the object of ridicule and hilarious laughter, as scientists will marvel at its pagan mythology.

Nothing new under the sun:

Jeremiah 2:27 Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.

Let us all flee from the kind of paganism that will only lead to another Hitler’s fascination with helping the human species evolve, another Margaret Sanger (founder of the Birth Control League) that wants us to eliminate “inferior stock”.

Let us find love in the God of Love and his Son.

Even More Embarrassments for Anti-Creationists

July 18, 2010

Bicycle-man has provided us with more entertaining sound bites to use to showcase the bankruptcy of Darwinism.

Piltdown man was suspected early on because as more hominid fossils were discovered Piltdown didn’t fit the pattern shown by the others. Also, there were no primitive apes in England so that made it even more suspect.

Yeah, fifty years later, after getting showcased and front and center at the museum in London, when they found it was a fraud, everybody claimed they knew it all along.

Reminds me of a Pee Wee Herman snip from one movie, speaking of bikes, the ad for one of his movies where he falls off his bicycle and says “I meant to do that”.

It is a shame it took forty years to discover the fraud, but it was scientists who discovered the fraud, not creationists. This shows the self-correcting nature of science, something that religious nuts don’t have.

Ha, not creationists, so what, creationists were telling them all along it didn’t prove anything about Darwinism. Creationists were right fifty years before the “scientific establishment”, but they didn’t mention that in this blurb about “it wasn’t creationists”. Ha. But it exposed how desperate the mad scientist bunch is to have even a fraud for evidence, because they are so short on it!

One “evolutionary biologist” said you could fit ALL pre-hominid fossils into the back of a pickup truck.

And science isn’t self-correcting it doesn’t do anything. Scientists sometimes do what we call science. But for sure scientists are not “self-correcting”. Since they put God out of their thoughts it gets crazier by the minute.

And the delusion that scientists do not have any of the common foibles of common man, is an even worse delusion. Ask a real scientists who has been tortured through peer review and had a paper rejected only to see his own idea show up in somebody else’s published article.

That is “The way science works”. Ask atheist cosmologist and Royal Society Fellowship recipient Joao Magueijo, of the book “Faster Than the Speed of Light”.

Nebraska Man was never accepted by the scientific community.

But they promoted its use in the national press to pile dirt on William Jennings Bryant in the press across the country –during the Scopes trial. Some “coincidence”.

The use the same tactics today, use the court system to do their dirty work, preferably where they can find a good compromised corrupt judge. Watch out when you start using government halls to overturn the people by deciding which theories are “scientific”, you have trouble, and it’s going to backfire on you.

The Darwinian establishment is bothered by laws that even tell their students it’s okay to question scientific orthodoxy. That should tell you something.

Also, these examples you give are from the 1910s and 1920s.

Like the 21st century dino-bird in China?

And whoever said that Neanderthal Man is the same as modern humans is misinformed. They are close relatives, perhaps close enough to be part ancestor to some modern humans, so close that they are now considered by most to be a subspecies of Homo Sapiens. That doesn’t mean they are “just like us.”

“Just like us” is a big word. When it is a true hominid of the rare find, it turns out eventually the same as with the Hobbits they found in Indonesia and the Pygmies in Africa. Oh gosh, they are us!

Like Ota Benga.

This man from the Pygmy tribe in Africa was showcased –IN A CAGE!– at the St. Louis Fair as an exhibit of the “missing link” in man’s evolution, and shipped like an animal to the New York Zoo afterward. The man that was only released after protests from Christians!

Would ANY amount of evidence be sufficient for you to admit that humans share common biological ancestry with other animals? It seems you are very misinformed and that you have a closed mind to truth because you are looking at everything through filters of faith. I can’t believe in a God that would try to trick us by planting all these clues that evolution explains and predicts so neatly. Just a few would be one thing, but there is so much evidence of so many different types that all point to the same reality that it seems madness for anyone to deny it.

It’s not there, and you’re not offering any real evidence. God didn’t paint any such clues. It’s a “fairy tale for adults” like one evolutionary biologist said once. My faith is based on solid evidence, unlike maybe some Christians.

Again, would ANY amount of evidence be sufficient for you to admit you are wrong. If so, why don’t you already accept the truth of God’s creation (i.e., that evolution is as much a fact of nature as gravity is)? If not, why not?

I told you. Darwinism is a long-since discredited ancient pagan superstitious religious belief, with a new face painted on with big words meant to impress. I was once an atheist, evolutionist, communist, anarchist. The facts of science and history and logic took me to the Bible as the truth it is.

You can take an apple and drop it and demonstrate gravity. Breeding a cat from dog stock has never worked. Breeding a completely new form does not work. “Kinds”, or to use the paleontology term “forms”, have never been shown in the fossils to turn into other forms, except by the pure imagination of the believer, who in this case believes it by blind faith.

The gap between major forms in the fossils is wider than the space between clusters of galaxies, but in the fossils the vacuum doesn’t even have one atom floating around like there are in space vacuums.

Fossils Are Talking to You!

April 24, 2010

>>>(gluadys) And, that, by the way, –(that God is not a deceiver, therefore we can trust that our perceptions are of a real world)—is the reason I accept evolution. The “real world stuff” leads to no other conclusion.

Nice try. See below what God tells us about that philosophically in Romans about that: Notice that it says we understand his invisible things by what was made, which is polar opposite to the spontaneous accidental PAGAN darwinian model.

The “real world stuff” is Creation, Creation. No matter you’ve acted like the Brits, who, coming upon their first platypus, felt sorry for the “poor otter”, poor victim of some perverted joker, and tried for quite some time to unglue the duck’s beak from its snout. Poor platypus.

Presented with “real world stuff”, the only conclusion for them was an otter with a duck’s beak.

Evolution is nowhere to be seen. The strongest evidence is the “real world fossils”. They cry out Creation..

    The fossils

cry out: “There are no transitions!” The forensics scream out special separate Creation of “kinds”, which are what Steven Gould calls “forms” in paleontology.

The fossils cry out “Sudden flood!” , the precise conditions for fossilization.

The fossils say “waves of mud burying us alive in fast succession”. Go check where there are the narratives that talk about fossil fields, they all say this. Meaning they also cry out “sudden destruction”.

The fossils say “sudden simultaneous explosion of life” in the Cambrian layer. Not only that but “ALL high-level-major categories of body plans”, about a dozen or so, of which less than half persist today. This means they also cry out, following the “sudden and immediate explosion of life”, came “Sudden destruction!”.

The dinosaur fossils are BLEEDING red blood cells to send us a message from their mass grave that they did not live so long ago. “If you break me, do I not show you my bone marrow cell structures? If you consider me under a microscope, do I not bleed?”

The “missing link fossils that aren’t there” yell out with all their lungs that they DID NOT EXIST!, a vast void that rivals the emptiness between galaxy clusters.

The “pre-human fossils” cry out too, they will not shut up! “We are human!” Or another one “I am primate!” Or the other one: “I am just a sick kid!”

The “living fossils” are not only talking to us from the past, they are mocking us. “Fooled you, you fool” you say, you can’t fool me with that “No big deal” theater act. Extinct dinosaur pines, indeed. Coalecanth, indeed. But living fossils are not the only fossils mocking us…

“Fake fossils” make even bigger mockery of fools than “living fossils”, because they tell us the Emperor has no Clothes, and the Paleontologist Is Desperate for a Missing Link Because They Have None. they tell us that devout faithful darwinian pagan high priests are making fools of their gullible awestruck victims with their solemn pronouncements proclaiming yet another “creature older than these here hills”…

The real-world Chinese “dino-bird fossil” fraud cries out: There.is.no.dino-bird! Got that? Repeat now: There. Is. No. Dino-bird.

“Polystrate fossils are rolling on the floor laughing!” Because they’re saying, “I’m telling you all these layers around me came down in fast waves from a Big Flood and you think it’s cause I just snuck in here? What, you think God is a deceiver?!”

Real world fossils are the best testimony to a living God who created us.

We owe him our existence, and that’s the evidence the most mocking atheist does not want to see, whence the great deceit, the big lie of darwinoid evolution.

The fossils yell it loud, they yell it proud, they yell it here, they yell it there, they tell it everywhere:

“Darwin’s evolution is a big, fat, LIE!”

Romans 1:19 ¶Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
