"The Evolutionary Dynamics of Digital and Nucleotide Codes: A Mutation Protection Perspective"

Willaim DeJong writes of a newly published study: "The article refers to the largely unknown fact that both digital codes (computer programs) and nucleotide codes (DNA) are protected against mutations. The article concludes that living nature continuously adapts to changing circumstances by gene-regulation and the recombination of gene variants ('alleles') and selection. These mechanisms for random change and selection neither produce new alleles nor expand the length of the nucleotide code, and operate within the boundaries of mutation protection."

    Answers In Genesis Museum Got A Reaction From Opponents


    The New York Times features an article that reports the technical and artistic excellence of the museum, located just across the Kentucky border from Cincinnati, but expresses amazement at the worldview. After a reasonable description of the experience, the writer ends with puzzlement that scientific evidence is offered -- obviously assuming that Christian belief is a leap in the dark. Then he makes what he assumes to be the "gotcha" point that if miracles are allowed, then we have a chaotic universe. Hopefully the "cognitive dissonance" that results from seeing that bright talented people have these "strange beliefs" will cause many to reconsider their prejudices.

    Can anybody notice the problem in the following statement? Eugenie Scott wrote: "To scientists, using God to explain natural phenomena of any kind violates the practice of methodological naturalism, in which scientific explanations are limited only to natural causes." (Hint: Does science encompass all of reality?)

    The Kansas 2005 Hearings contain this statement by Mr. John Calvert: "A philosophy professor at Concordia University of Wisconsin was asked about scientists who have theistic beliefs and also accept evolution. This is what he said: 'The mere fact that you have somebody who holds two beliefs, A and B, does not show that they are logically consistent.' He went on to say, 'It might be that some of these people are confused.' And you will remember the significant number of people walking around here wearing a tag that said 'confused' after that statement."


    Who Is Your Creator
    There was a large billboard questioning evolution near Washington Avenue & Interstate 35W in downtown Mineapolis.
    It earned a Star Tribune editorial stating that "evolution is a fact." It is a high honor to irritate those guardians of political correctness.

    Ironically, this billboard stands just before the bridge that collapsed on August 1, 2007. Were the victims just cosmic accidents or creations of a loving God, Whom they had either accepted or rejected prior to their sudden demise?

    The Romans One Test

    Romans One indicates that the existence of God and something of His nature are so apparent from the things He has made that those who fail to recognize it are "without excuse." In fact, the passage states that they are actually "suppressing the truth." In what ought to be frightening to those who are doing it, Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, writes that this places the offenders under "the wrath of God."

    Now, of course, atheists think they have nothing to fear since they do not believe in God. Romans One, however, tells us that God does not believe in atheists - at least honest atheists - because He states that the evidence for His existence, eternal power and divine nature is plain in creation, and only avoided by active suppression.

    Yet there are Christians - who ought to know better - that still endorse a cosmology indistinguishable from that of an atheistic thinker. In other words, they agree with everything mainstream materialistic science comes up with but simply say, "God did it like this."

    Evolutionary Instruction Is Scholastic

    Proponents of evolution, claiming to be products of the Enlightenment, have actually reverted to the pre-modern mode of instruction. At the time Francis Bacon defined modern experimental science, the Universities were dominated by Aristotelian Scholastics. This hold was so strong that independent Natural Philosophy Societies had to be started to provide a forum for the new thinking.

    In the Universities, students were given, as authoritative, the teachings of the Greeks, mainly Aristotle, and deviation was not tolerated. Science was done by starting with a "known" principle, performing deductive reasoning from that principle (essentially "thought experiments") and finally selecting examples from nature to illustrate - not prove - the point.

    Ironically, evolutionists, instead of continuing the Baconian legacy of observation, hypothesis, experimentation and modification, have reinstituted the Scholastic format. Students are authoritatively taught "the fact of evolution." They may be given "thought experiments" such as "describe the selective advantage of flight." They may then select examples from nature that illustrate that point.

    Their actual philosophy is less like Aristotle (who believed in cause and effect) than some of the others, like Epicurus (who believed that atoms have the innate power of "swerve" -- the ancient "uncertainty principle") and Pythagoras (who seemed to nearly worship nature and think that it was essentially mathematical).

    No amount of contrary evidence is considered enough to re-consider the basic proposition of evolution because it is accepted on authority. The data are not examined systematically but only as they support the hypothesis.

    So who are the "pseudo-scientists" after all?

  • Definition of Evolution

    Recently evolutionists have retreated from defending abiogenesis and claim that it has never been considered part of evolution. (It is interesting that this has happened after creationists effectively showed the physical impossibility of life arising by natural processes.) Yet this has not always been the case.

    George Gaylord Simpson wrote: "Evolution is a fully natural process, inherent in the physical properties of the universe, by which life arose in the first place and by which all living things, past or present, have since developed, divergently and progressively" ("The World Into Which Darwin Led Us," Science, 1960, p. 969).

    And, of course, for those who want to defend a materialistic world view, it is absolutely essential that there be a non-supernatural origin of life, and indeed of matter, energy and time, whether they want to include it under "evolution" or give it a separate name.

    If they say "we have no theory of the natural origin of life," then it means that the only other choice -- a supernatural origin -- must be the working hypothesis.

    POLLEN PROBLEMS (For the evolutionist!)

    In the 1980's, Creation Research Society repeated and confirmed the earlier research of Clifford Burdick, finding intact pollen in the PreCambrian strata of the Grand Canyon, which according to standard chronology should have had no flowering plants. They also found 200 million years missing with the layers above and below the missing strata interbedded (blending) and no erosion. This means their deposition was continuous without any significant gap of time.

    C. S. Lewis
    Thought

    There are all sorts of different reasons for believing in God, and here I will mention only one. It is this. Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen for physical or chemical reasons to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It is like upsetting a milk-jug and hoping that the way the splash arranges itself will give you a map of London. But if I cannot trust my own thinking, of course I cannot trust the arguments leading to atheism and therefore the reason to be an atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought or anything else: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.
