on scott the paleontologist and his one sided ways

It seems like our TV is always on some kind of cartoon. Even if no one is watching it, during the day there is always something going on about one kid thing or another. Today after I finally got Rory to lay down..I came into the living room for a little “briana” time. I finally found the remote and sat down to fold some laundry. Dinosaur Train was on and before I turned the channel I got to hear a little bit from Scott the paleontologist. What I heard really made me mad. He was going on about some dinosaur or another that lived 65 million years ago. Not once did he say that this was an estimate based on a principle that cannot be proven.  Whoever said that it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in a creator, to me , was completely right and they also must have been aware of just how unscientific evolution is. (that’s right. I said unscientific.. for the sake of time,  click here or here if you would like to  see for yourself ) Now, Im not going to sit here and argue at how scientific creation is  (even though there are tons of factors in our universe that point towards it) because it is not my place to do so..the complexities of life and of DNA are mindblowing. The following was written by Walt Brown Ph. D and he sums it up far better than I could ever try to do..

DNA cannot function without hundreds of preexisting proteins,a but proteins are produced only at the direction of DNA.b Because each needs the other, a satisfactory explanation for the origin of one must also explain the origin of the other.c Therefore, the components of these manufacturing systems must have come into existence simultaneously.  This implies creation.

Some of these necessary proteins decode the DNA, store DNA (histones spools), transcribe DNA into messenger RNA, and assemble proteins (ribosomes). These systems, present in each cell, are extremely complex.

One of the most studied proteins in mammals, including humans, is called p53. It binds to thousands of DNA sites and influences cell growth, death, and structure. It is involved in fertility and early embryonic development. It also stifles cancers by repairing DNA, suppressing tumors, and killing genetically damaged cells.d How could DNA have survived unless p53 and its many functions already existed?

In each human, tens of thousands of genes are damaged daily!e Also, when a cell divides, its DNA at times is copied with errors. Every organism has machinery that identifies and repairs damaged and mistranslated DNA.f Without such repair systems, the organism would quickly deteriorate and die. If evolution happened, each organism would have become extinct before these DNA repair mechanisms could evolve.

Life’s complexity is mind boggling—not something that random processes could ever produce.

How science claims to understand it all is a mystery to me. Are there not some things that humanity cannot just accept are too intricate for our minds to comprehend? Why are so many people convinced that the only god which exists are themselves? It’s not that Scott the paleontologist  was talking about evolution that upset me. It is the simple fact of how one sided our society is that upsets me. Scott the paleontologist gets to sit there and tell my children that what he is saying is the truth, even though it has not been proven..even though not ONE single-celled fossil has EVER been found yet he gets to tell my children that is what they come from. What upsets me is that teachers and all the “scotts” in this world get to tell my children that something as statistically insane as evolution is fact but when someone is bold enough to say that they believe in creation they are looked at like a fool. To keep your children away from being indoctrinated with the atheistic agenda that runs this world, you either have to pay big bucks for private school or homeschool because most of the public schools that our taxes pay for do not give any other viewpoints..and that is wrong. An article written by Robert L. Simonds, Th.D. addresses this issue, he says:

Today, many in public education are attempting to use the government to censor scientific evidence that refutes evolution and advances the concept of special creation. It is widely believed that scientific creationism cannot be taught in a public school science classroom. This is not true.

The U.S. Supreme Court developed a three-prong test in Lemon v. Kurtzas to when government involvement in religious activity does not violate the establishment clause: (1) The activity must have a secular purpose; (2) its primary effect must be neither to advance nor inhibit religion; (3) it must not constitute excessive entanglement of government with religion.

THE BATTLEGROUND

One would think that rational men of science would want to test, evaluate, and discuss any reasonable scientific theory on any given subject, to ascertain probable, testable data to move the theory to the level of a scientific law.

However, the established scientific community has built an entire system around a straw house. The irrationality of this position has created a scientific “house divided,” as Dr. Henry Morris has thoroughly documented.1

Not only does the theory of evolution not conform to the criteria for science, it is also the foundation of many religions, and it totally fails the Supreme Court test of government non-involvement in religion.

This is nothing less than a spiritual battle for the minds of all America’s children. Evolution, consistently applied, denies God’s existence and His creative acts. It is the central theme of all humanist theory. Without evolution, the entire atheist religion of humanism would fall.

you may think that teaching this would go against the seperation of church and state..however, he goes on to say:

HOW ABOUT THE CHURCH AND STATE ISSUE?

Dr. John Moore, Professor of Natural Science at Michigan State University for over 30 years, pointed out that in creation science:

No new laws are necessary, there is no possible violation of so-called separation of church and state, since no religious teaching is involved.2 But would the United States Supreme Court buy that? Yes. In Edwards vs. Aguiliard, 482 U.S. 96 (1987), they said:

… teaching a variety of scientific theories about the origins of mankind to school children might be done with the clear secular intent of enhancing the effectiveness of science instruction.

That ruling also sustained the finding of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, as follows:

No court of which we are aware had prohibited voluntary instruction concerning purely scientific evidence that happens, incidentally, to be consistent with a religious doctrine or tenet.

Therefore, the teaching of creation science is solidly supported by law—as long as the court’s rules are followed.

HOW ABOUT ACADEMIC CREDIBILITY?

The main argument of the ACLU in the Scopes Trial in 1925 was that “it is bigotry for public schools to teach only one theory of origins (creation).” The argument was against “censorship” of evolution. Now the tables have turned.

A liberal educaton, by definition, requires all sides of every issue to be aired. Truth from any source should not be feared. That is another academic reason to teach “creation science.” Academic freedom permits a teacher to present whatever views he or she deems necessary to clarify a subject.

Censoring out creation science in favor of a religious view of evolution would violate academia’s rules against censorship. Not to allow another valid theorv would also violate the academic idea of a liberal education, and to suppress a teacher’s right to freedom in learning would violate the concept of academic freedom.

My original intention when I began this post was to discuss something completely different; I will just have to write about what I had originally intended to discuss on a different post. When I look at all the double standards in this society and the injustice towards christianity it makes me so upset but it really should make me rejoice. The bottom line is that we are living in the last days..all of this humanism and the widespread denial of God that is is so rampant today..these things were written about as signs of the end days in that book that so many say is just useless junk. Just google bible prophecy or signs of the times..good Lord!.. even an idiot would have the mental capacity to recognize that the events occurring in the world around us are not coincidental.. they were written thousands of years ago. For the first time in history almost everything is lined up..the stage is set. How people living today can really say that there is no God and that the Bible is not a book inspired by him is something that gives even more meaning to the verse that I will close with. If anyone that is reading this scoffs at the idea of God.. I really do challenge you to research how closely the current times in which we live coincide with the Bible. Maybe the facts about our DNA are not enough to cause you to see the hand of the divine creator who lovingly composed your life, but hopefully..possibly.. looking into this will.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made,so that people are without excuse.For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles..  They exchanged the truth about God for a lie,and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.Amen. Romans 1:2o-25
