The Creation of Evolution

Have you heard about the new Darwin? Jeremy England is a professor at MIT with a theory “dissipation-driven adaptation” about the origins of life. The theory focusses on physics instead of biology, the usual scientific approach to evolution. My best summary is that life is inevitable because of the physical structure of the universe. “random groups of molecules can self-organize to more efficiently absorb and dissipate heat from the environment.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_England Life had to happen because of the design and structure of the universe. That’s a complicated way to say that life was created. The god of creation, in this case, is the physical universe, the thing that made life. By extension, something intelligent made the structure of the universe so that it inevitably produced life, but that is just me talking. The ‘new Darwin’ Jeremy England identifies as Orthodox Jewish and apparently studies the Torah, what Christians call the Old Testament. Did you know that the original Darwin was a religious man? He is described as a naturalist, but that profession didn’t exist in …

Grand Canyon censored, for Christians?

Dr. Andrew Snelling has a Ph.D in geology from the University of Sydney, a world-renowned institution. He has written a number of articles and reports published in peer-reviewed science journals and has years of experience in geological research. Yet, in 2013 when he wanted to take a few fist-sized geological samples from the Grand Canyon for research and scientific study, he was refused. For decades officials with the Grand Canyon National Park have allowed scientists to take material from the Park for study. The Park had even given Snelling permission to gather samples in the past. So, why did Park officials refuse Snelling this time? The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a non-profit, legal organization dedicated to defending religious liberties, alleges Park officials denied permission because Snelling is a Christian. Snelling also works for Answers in Genesis, a Christian organization providing scientific evidence of creation. He does not accept the narrative that the Grand Canyon was created over 450 million years ago. According to ADF, Dr Snelling was seeking “to gather samples at folds inside the …

Darwin and the Scottish Cows

Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution for the origin of the species when he sailed around the world on a ship named the Beagle. On that voyage, in 1834, he explored the eroded valley of the Santa Cruz River in Argentina and he commented on the lapse of ages and the gradual erosion that produced the valley. We now know that a GLOF (Glacier Lake Outburst Flood) occurred when an icy glacier blocked the river near the mountains and dammed up a huge reservoir. When the water burst through the ice, the GLOF eroded the valley quickly, probably in days. When I was a boy, I travelled with my family in Washington State, and I noticed that the dry interior had hundreds of eroded water channels, all dry, and I saw probably the biggest water fall in the world, Dry Falls, four times the size of Niagara, in a deep eroded valley. I knew then that something very big had happened. In the 1920s, a Geologist named J. Harlen Bretz named that region in …

The first solar cell was invented in 1839 or was it?

According to Wikipedia, French physicist Edmond Becquerel invented the world’s first solar cell in 1839. He was 19-years-old and used his father’s laboratory to construct it. It was the world’s first photovoltaic cell to convert the sun’s light into electricity. But was Becquerel’s invention the world’s first photo cell as some claim? According to Dr. Marian Plotkin, an entomologist at Israel’s Tel Aviv University, the answer is an emphatic ‘NO’. That honor must go to the Oriental Hornet. It is a large insect — 25mm to 35mm long (1 to 1.38 inches) — common to the Middle East, Northern Africa and India. In his study of this unique insect, Plotkin discovered this species of hornet actually produces electricity from the sun. Yes it is a living, breathing, solar panel. To prove his point, Plotkin wired six hornets together and was able to produce enough electricity to fire up a digital watch. At this point, they are still not sure how the energy is utilized, but some suspect the hornet uses the energy to dig — …

Evolving Evolutionists?

Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz, a respected anthropologist from the University of Pittsburgh, still believes in evolution, but his views on Darwinism have evolved over the years, due to a lack of evidence in the fossil record. In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Schwartz no longer believes in “gradualism.” According to the theory of evolution proposed by Charles Darwin, species evolved gradually over millions of years through minute incremental changes. Schwartz argues that if these minute changes actually took place, evolutionists would find thousands examples of these species at different stages in their evolutionary development. Instead the fossil record is starkly quiet with huge gaps in the fossil record. Darwin claimed that the absence of these missing links was simply a matter of bad luck. Schwartz disagrees – based on the evidence – the lack of transitional fossils says the transitions never existed in the first place. Schwartz adds that some organs, such as the eye, are so complicated that the sheer number of changes required for its evolution “defies logic.” He also takes a …

Fearfully and wonderfully made: Appendix redeemed, we do need it

A favorite tactic of some to prove evolution is to point to what they call vestigial organs in the human body. According to this theory, vestigial organs evolved in our ancient history, but have no real purpose today. They are left over relics from our evolutionary past. One of the prime examples of a vestigial organ is the appendix that is routinely cut out when it becomes infected because doctors see no real use for it. However, a group of researchers at Midwestern University Arizona Hospital in Glendale, Arizona have concluded the appendix actually serves a very important function in the human body. Because of the large amount of lymphatic tissue in the appendix, they said it is a production center for beneficial “gut bacteria” necessary for good health. Good gut bacteria serves several important functions including helping the body absorb fiber and nutrients. It  also plays a vital role in the body’s immune system and some bacteria even supply a form of beneficial hormones. Contrary to what scientists have believed for decades, our body …

Scientists who dissent on evolution

We are inundated constantly with messages on evolutionary theory. We see it referenced in movies, documentaries, newspapers, magazines, websites and even TV ads. Though flooded almost daily with this belief, many are unaware there is a growing list of scientists who openly question the very tenants of Darwin’s theory of evolution. This is happening because the evidence does not support the theory — one of the basic theorems of science. In fact, a website (www.dissentfromdarwin.org) was set up a few years ago specifically for scientists having second thoughts about Darwin’s theory of evolution. In order to join this prestigious list, one must have a doctorate in one of the sciences such as chemistry, physics or biology or be a medical doctor. The signers must willingly subscribe to this basic belief: “We are skeptical of claims of the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged.” This list — updated quarterly — is managed by the Discovery Institute and as …

It’s no fluke!

Several years ago, my son and I were watching  a TV program about the complex life cycle of the small liver fluke. The design behind its life cycle leaves your head shaking and begs the question how on earth did this evolve. Of course, it didn’t. It’s simply another sign of God’s creation. The small liver fluke is a parasite common to North America, Europe and Asia. Where do we begin?. The zombie ant Perhaps one of the most unusual influences of this microscopic parasite is its effect on ants. The ants eat the cercaria of the fluke which is essentially the fluke in its adolescent stage. Well, they don’t really want to eat it, however the temptation is so great. But we will get to that in a moment. Once ingested one or two cercaria — call them the pilot and co-pilot — make their way from the ant’s stomach to its brain. Once there, they burrow into the ant’s brain and take control. At this point, the ant enters into what can only be described as a zombie-like …

Why animals became carnivores: Vampire finches

In my earlier post, I wrote on Dr. Joel Berger’s study that showed a prey’s natural fear of predators is not instinctive but rather a learned behaviour. If there are no carnivores around, the animals had little fear of predators compared to those existing in areas with many natural enemies. The prophet Isaiah spoke of a day when the lion would lie with the lamb (Isaiah 11:6-9). The lamb would have no fear of the lion because it eats vegetation. Since Isaiah saw this as part of the new heaven and new earth (Isaiah 65: 17, 25), many have concluded that at creation, animals were not created as carnivores.  It was also a learned behaviour. So what happened to change the natural order of life as God intended it? The Apostle Paul explains it this way: “For the creation was subject to futility, not willingly, 
but because of Him who subjected it in hope
That the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that …

None of these diseases

There was a curious discovery in the guts of nine Inca mummies dug out of the mountains of Chile. Tasha Santiago-Rodriguez, who works with California Polytechnic State University (CPSU), said initially her group was “very surprised” by what they found. In the stomachs of the ancient mummies dated between the 10th and 18th century, they discovered antibody-resistant bacteria. Drug-resistant bacteria is becoming an increasing concern in the 21st century. It involves disease-causing bacteria with a natural immunity to modern antibodies that doctors have traditionally used to fight them. A number of these drug-resistant bacteria recently showed up in Europe, Asia and the US. Without drugs to beat this bacteria back, human populations will become increasingly vulnerable. As these super-bugs started appearing, there have been repeated references in the media on how these bacteria have mutated building up a resistance to our modern drugs. It leaves the impression we are witnessing evolution in action. However, the recent discovery of bacteria with resistance to modern drugs like tetracycline,  penicillin and vancomycin in the guts of ancient Incas sets …

World-renown physicist Michio Kaku acknowledges the existence of God

Atheists enjoy mocking Christians accusing them of having a fairy-tale belief in Creation – that somehow there is a God who created heaven and earth. So what happens when a renown scientist, with a Doctorate in Physics, says he believes that there is an intelligent being who created the universe? Not only that, he came to this conclusion after his study of science. Meet world-renown American physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, 69. Born to Japanese parents, for 25 years he has held the Henry Semat Chair and professor of theoretical physics at City College of New York. His journey started as a student at Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California. Kaku showed up at his school’s National Science Fair with a particle accelerator, an atom smasher, that he made in his parent’s garage. Though most were astounded by what he had created, Kaku looked upon it as a bit of a failure, as he had hoped to create a “a beam of gamma rays powerful enough to create antimatter.” But despite his invention’s shortcomings, Physicist …

Gene study: Life just got way more complicated

One of the massive problems facing evolutionists is how did non organic material suddenly come to life — living, growing, moving, breathing, consuming and most importantly reproducing. There is no explainable way it could happen and according to an article entitled “Design and synthesis of a minimal bacterial genome” published in Science Magazine, the issue is much worse than previously thought. Over two decades, a group that would involve 20 scientists took one of the simplest bacteria, M. mycoides, and began to strip away unnecessary genes to discover what was the least number needed for it to continue to exist. Unnecessary does not mean these genes are unuseful. If I was to strip my car down to the very basics needed to function, there are probably dozens of things I could remove that are not necessary, but nevertheless beneficial, such as the rear view mirror and front window. With 900 genes, M. mycoides is one of the simpler forms of bacteria. In comparison, the E. coli bacterium has over 4,000 genes. They had sorted out what they …

Does science make a case for God?

On Christmas day in 2014, an article appeared in the Wallstreet Journal (WSJ) entitled “Science increasingly makes the case for God.” Written by Christian apologist and author Eric Metaxas, the article caused a firestorm on the internet. It received an incredible 550,000 Facebook shares. This along with nearly 9,500 comments made it one of WSJ’s most read articles in its prestigious history. In the article, Metaxas starts off writing how science has been desperately looking for life on other planets. He cited an article written in 1966 by Time Magazine entitled “Is God dead?”. In it, astronomer Carl Sagan suggested in the vastness of the universe there were a septillion number of planets (1 plus 24 zeros) capable of life. Sagan believed all that was needed was a decent sun with a planet the right distance away and presto life will spontaneously appear. A number of government and private organizations popped up to track down these aliens. They organized into a group called the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. But Metaxas points out it has been …

Dinosaurs on Mars?

For decades, “fossil” fuel is a term used to describe oil. It leaves the impression that oil is derived from the decay of ancient dinosaurs and fauna, millions of years old. In the minds of many, “fossil” fuels have become evidence of evolution. It also implicitly suggests that there is a limited source of oil and once it is used up, it’s done. A year ago, December 2014, NASA announced that its Curiosity rover plodding around on Mars discovered methane. In August 2012, the rover was exploring the 154 km-wide Gale crater when it picked up methane particles in the atmosphere. And briefly for two months, December 2013 to January 2014, the methane concentrations increased by a dramatic 1000%. Methane is a gas necessary for the creation of oil. As heated methane percolates up through the earth’s crust, certain hydrocarbons cool and condense forming oil. With the discovery of methane on Mars, many were convinced it was evidence of life on the Red Planet. Maybe the H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds wasn’t wrong. …

Tests confirm it’s dinosaur blood!

After running tests, scientists from North Carolina State University (NCSU) have confirmed that non-fossilized organic material found in a dinosaur bone thought to be nearly 80 million years old are in fact blood vessels from that dinosaur and not another form of contaminate. The discovery of the soft material was made by a researcher from the University of Texas studying the demineralized bone of a 30-foot Hydrosaur found in Montana. Using high-resolution mass spectroscopy, the researcher noticed the soft tissue. Initially, it was believed the bone was contaminated in the lab. The university announced its findings in a news release and as well an article published in the November 23 edition of Journal of Proteome Research. This finding has caused serious problems for evolutionists because it is evidence these bones are not millions of years old as previously thought. How could there still be soft tissue in bones thought to be nearly a hundred million years old? Despite reports of organic material being found in fossilized bones around the world (here and here), many evolutionists …

New species of dinosaur discovered — Barbersaurus

We often hear news of paleontologists discovering the fossilized remains of a new, yet unheard of, dinosaur. According to their reports, it will typically be tens of millions of years old. Unfortunately, it has been ingrained into our minds that if it’s a fossil it must be millions of years old. That’s because most people don’t realize fossilization can take place in just a few years. We know this because of the discovery of a new dinosaur species — Barbersaurus. Discovered in Australia, it is a bit odd-looking — actually it looks like a heavy hula hoop. It was smaller than your typical dinosaur, weighing only 165 pounds or 75 kg. It is difficult to nail down its age, but a best guess is somewhere between 45 and 95 years old. It was discovered by a young Australian girl, 11-year-old Amy Lewis. Her parents, Col and Jo Lewis, owned a trailer park near Australia’s Eighty Mile Beach located  on the Northwest coast of Australia. This fossilized object was none other than a roll of barbwire …

DNA research confirms Adam and Eve

In a newly released documentary, The Genetics of Adam and Eve, Dr Georgia Purdom of Answers in Genesis (AIG) says there is compelling genetic evidence showing that humans are direct descendants of one man and one woman as the Bible records. Before joining AIG, Purdom, who has a PhD in genetics from Ohio State University, was a biology professor and wrote a number of published papers in scientific journals including Journal of Neuroscience, and the Journal of Leukocyte Biology. Purdom says those who believe in millions of years of evolution dismiss the story of Adam and Eve as little more than a myth. They believe that humans can not have descended from a single man and woman as the Bible states insisting instead humans have multiple contributors to our genetic code. In her documentary, Purdom looks at the findings of geneticist Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson. Also a Christian, Jeanson, who has a PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology from Harvard University, has used his expertise in the field of genetics to prove Adam and Eve’s existence. Jeanson …

Did Sherlock Holmes see a dinosaur?

Well maybe it wasn’t exactly Sherlock who saw the dinosaur, but his creator — Sir Arthur Conan Doyle — said he did. According to his autobiography, in 1909 Doyle and his wife were on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean when they spotted a creature swimming in the sea. Doyle said it was “about four feet long, with a thin neck and tail and four-marked side slippers.” Doyle was convinced he and his wife had spotted an Ichthyosaurus. Of course, Doyle penned several books, but one has intrigued children for years — The Lost World. In it, Doyle writes about a group of explorers who came across a secluded South American plateau (called a Tepuy) where dinosaurs and humans co-existed. He wrote this book in 1911, two years after the sighting. It seems likely that the spotting of a living dinosaur sparked Doyle’s imagination. If there was one, there could be others. One fear that grips evolutionists is the discovery of a modern-day dinosaur. They have repeatedly stated that dinosaurs, who supposedly died off about …

Blood found inside a T-Rex bone from Alberta, Canada

[by Dean Smith] An article in an English newspaper, The Guardian, is reporting scientists have found blood inside a T-Rex bone fragment. What is particularly interesting is that these tiny scraps of bone from the Dinosaur Park formation in Alberta, Canada were in poor condition. They had been kicking around for about 100 years, and few months ago the fossils were sent to the Museum of Natural History in London, England. (Photo: Zetgem/Foter/CC BY-NC) A scientist decided to take a closer look at these fossil fragments from different dinosaurs using a high-powered electron microscope. He had actually been studying human cells and decided to take a look at the dinosaur bones as well.

How to annoy an evolutionist: Creationist makes important fossil discovery in Alberta, Canada

[by Dean Smith] During the day, Edgar Nernberg is a backhoe operator in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but at night he promotes his favorite pastime — Creationism. He even helped build the Big Valley Creation Science Museum in Big Valley, Alberta and sits on the museum’s board. The museum was set up to counter Alberta’s Royal Tyrrell museum in Drumheller, that promotes evolution. Edgar even wants to have creationism included in the curriculum of Alberta schools. Contrary to evolutionary theory, Edgar believes the world is about 6,000 years old. Nernberg was excavating a basement in a northwest Calgary subdivision when a sandstone with odd markings caught his attention.  It is now being heralded as one of the greatest fossil finds in Alberta in recent decades — a significant claim considering Alberta is renowned for its fossils.

Creationists and evolutionists sort of agree on snakes

[by Dean Smith] It doesn’t happen very often, so when it does we need to talk about it. Creationists and evolutionists are in agreement on some facts about snakes. As I read this story on the evolution of snakes there was the usual rhetoric of snakes being a 110 million years old — a point of contention for creationists considering scientists are now finding organic, non-fossilized cartilage and blood in dinosaur bones. It is hard to fathom how there could be non-fossilized material in any bones supposedly 70 million years old. Scientists from Yale University in the US initiated a study of snakes to discover their origins. Looking at modern snake DNA and anatomy plus recent fossil finds, they concluded that at one time snakes had hind legs and front legs. Basically snakes walked.

A whale of a story and we are not talking about Jonah

You may have read articles, complete with images, showing whales with legs. Scientists claim they have found the fossilized remains of half whales, half animals that were the halfway point — a transition — as animals moved to the ocean to become whales. If you visit any number of museums such as the Paris Natural History Museum, Canadian Museum of Nature, New York’s American Museum of Natural History and Australia’s Melbourne Museum, you will find drawings or even full-sized plaster replicas of these walking whales on display as evolutionary evidence. At first glance those pictures look convincing, but all is not as it seems.

No infrared, no proof, but still most atheists believe in aliens

[by Dean Smith] It is a strange irony. While on one hand atheists claim they can’t believe in God because there is no scientific evidence to prove His existence, yet polls show the majority of atheists believe in aliens even though there is no scientific evidence to prove their existence. Oh sure, there are YouTube videos of people claiming aliens abducted them for experimentation, but that is hardly evidence. In fact, in a documentary produced by the Discovery Channel, famed atheist and physicist Stephen Hawking expressed concern about an advanced alien society plundering earth’s resources along the Hollywood theme of War of the Worlds or Independence Day. Well, Hawking and other like-minded atheists needn’t worry, Penn State just released its analysis of 100,000 galaxies probed by NASA’s Wise space observatory. They were looking for evidence of advanced alien civilizations and found none.

A scientific conspiracy?

A recent article in a major newspaper reveals the disturbing and dark side of science. The Times of London is reporting a group of scientists had decided that pesticides were the reason for the declining honey bee populations and with this bias firmly in place set out to find evidence and write reports that fit their beliefs. And here we thought it was the facts that determined the science, not scientists pre-determining the facts. Silly us. The Times received notes of four high-ranking scientists from a meeting in 2010 where the group allegedly discussed how they could convince European Union (EU) regulators to ban “neonicotinoid pesticides.” They even outlined who would write the articles and how they could co-ordinate their efforts for greatest effect. They also discussed the increased impact of convincing a major scientific journal to publish these articles.

Alien attacks, War of the Worlds, Martians and evolution

[by Dean Smith] Atheists and evolutionists like to discredit Christians for our belief in God who created the heavens and earth. They in turn insist their beliefs are all about the science. But that is often not the case. In fact, a recent poll showed that over half of atheists believe in life on other planets without any credible evidence for their existence. Atheists do have faith — it is just in Aliens. At the annual meeting of the American Physical Society in Illinois held Saturday, November 22, 2014. Physicist Dr. John Brandenburg presented his scientific evidence that there was an ancient civilization living on Mars that was completely destroyed when another Alien race attacked the planet.

An evolutionist comes clean on the impossibilty of evolution by stating we are alone

[by Dean Smith] Evolutionists want everyone to think that science is settled on evolution — that it is a hard, cold scientific fact. But it is actually just a theory on how life developed on earth and it’s not a very good one. The Bible is very clear that God alone created the heavens and earth and all life on our planet. And at least one evolutionist has come clean on the impossible odds of evolution happening in a very odd way. In a recent documentary called “Human Universe,” produced by England’s BBC, Professor Brian Cox said he does not believe in aliens or any other form of extra terrestrial life on other planets. Why?

II. More turtles all the way down

[by Earl Blacklock] In an earlier article, I discussed the irrationality of the argument of “9/11 Truthers” (who could also be called reality deniers), and equated them with scientists who insist that “science only” is the only rational approach for understanding life and the universe. Christians, of course, believe that there is a God, and that He personally intervened to create matter and life out of nothingness. There is currently circulating on the Internet a light-hearted response to this argument. It purports, with tongue firmly in cheek, that in fact the Flying Spaghetti Monster was responsible for creation, and this pasta-based pseudo-deity is personally intervening in the universe “with his noodly appendage” to distort scientific results. They reason that if science must recognize the possibility that God is Creator of all, then why not give the Flying Spaghetti Monster equal time?

I. It’s turtles all the way down

According to a 2006 national poll, 42% of Americans have faith – genuine, and heartfelt faith – in the theory that the truth about the 9/11 terrorist attacks has not been told. A large number of these believe the attacks were somehow orchestrated by George Bush, or at least by shadowy elements in the U.S. government. The “9/11 truth” movement has all of the elements of a cult-like belief system. It employs the reverse scientific method whereby one starts with the theory, and then cherry-picks the evidence to fit that theory. Members of the cult drink from the same well, and limit their exposure to mainstream thought. I won’t go into a lengthy description of all of the shortcomings of the argument. Others, particularly Popular Mechanics in its Debunking the 9/11 Myths: A Special Report, have already done so ably and well.

The single-celled bacteria that refuses to follow the evolutionary script

Evolutionists want you to believe that when life evolved on earth it started with  a very simple, single-celled bacteria. However, research is revealing that these single-celled bacteria are anything but simple. In November 2012, scientists from Osaka University in Japan and France’s Aix-Marseille Universite released a report showing the results of their study on how the MO-1 marine bacterium is able to move through water. This bacterium was found in rock that evolutionists consider to be three billion years old making it among the oldest forms found (again according to evolutionists who may now be regretting this declaration). 

What the Bible says really ended the dinosaur era… and no, it wasn’t the flood

One of the beliefs of evolution is that dinosaurs evolved into birds. There is a reason evolutionists went down this road and its based on a little known fact about dinosaurs — and oddly it’s one that supports the Biblical record on what ended the dinosaur era. The paleontological record shows that dinosaurs started shrinking in size. This was the conclusion of a study by a group of scientists from Oxford University.

Problems with the theory of evolution mount as more soft tissue discovered in fossilized bones

“How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?” — Sherlock Holmes speaking to evolutionists, err… Watson The fossils are supposed to be 130 million years old, but they apparently never received the latest evolutionary memo. I am talking about a massive dinosaur find in China, that some have likened to Jurassic Park because of the incredible amount of fossils discovered. Throw in the fact they are finding soft tissue in the fossils and visions of cloning dinosaurs and yet another Jurassic Park sequel quickly flood your mind. 

Extraordinary dinosaur find challenges evolution

Dinosaur bones from the Hell Creek formation in Montana cause a huge problem for evolutionists. Those digging at the site actually found fossilized dinosaur bones with soft tissue inside them (blood, blood vessels, cartilage). How could there be soft tissue in bones reportedly millions of years old? In 2004, palaeontologists uncovered a large T. Rex thigh bone (supposedly 69 million years old) at the Montana dig. They broke the bone for transport, revealing what looked like un-fossilized soft tissue. 

Gears before its time

One of the earliest mentions of gears was made by Aristotle around 330 BC. He was referring to gears in a windlass used to lift heavy weights. He stated by reversing the rotation of the gears, the direction of the load could be changed. It was a wonderful invention for the time.  Archimedes (287-212 BC) an engineer and inventor incorporated gears into many of the inventions he designed. But it appears gears were in operation centuries before this. They were being used by Issus Coleoptratus (Issus C.) to jump. Issus C. is a simple plant hopping bug common in England and Europe. It is part of a group of insects referred to as Planthoppers. Jumping for Issus C. is a complicated process. Any difference in thrust or timing between its two back legs would cause it to spin out of control. To solve the problem, Issus C, uses gears. 

Houston, we have a mutation problem — with evolution

In his article, Single genes have multiple effects published in The Globe and Mail, Stephen Strauss says a little known fact about genes and mutations is causing considerable consternation in evolutionary circles. Evolutionists believe new species were created as gene’s mutated. These mutations, if beneficial, were eventually incorporated into the species and gradually resulted in the formation of new animals over hundreds of millions of year. Over the past few years, we have been inundated
