Debunking Darwinian Evolution
Since I was a child raised in the California Coast Ranges, I have enjoyed science, history, and learning. Oh, the excitement when I found an obsidian arrowhead in the hills; or when I was able to call in a fox and get a photo of the fox with my parents’ old 1950s camera! On July 20, 1969, as I was doing geologic mapping along the Oregon coast, I pulled off the road to hear the Apollo 11 moon landing-that is one of the greatest engineering feats of the modern era! It was fascinating to watch the rovers Opportunity and Spirit visit craters on Mars (2005+).
Then there is the Hubble Telescope’s 11-day photo exposure (1995) demonstrating that any narrow tunnel of space contains thousands of galaxies. Since mankind’s entry into space on Oct. 4, 1957 (Soviet’s Sputnik 1), the New Horizons spacecraft has made a flyby of Pluto in late July 2015, in an epic 9 1/2 year, 3 billion-mile journey from Earth. These triumphs are the result of the precise application of the laws of mathematics, physics, and chemistry, along with engineering prowess. Even then, at least 17 U.S. astronauts have died in accidents.
Recent articles on dinosaurs and the flyby of the dwarf planet Pluto have appeared in the local paper, The Coeur d’Alene Press. Do the three key tools of secular humanism of 1) Darwinian evolution; 2) Hutton-Lyell uniformitarianism (“the present is the key to the past”-denying catastrophic events); and 3) the evolutionary time scale doom us in understanding earth history, let alone, understanding planetary history?
I initially used these tools of basically an atheistic worldview-yes, there are theistic evolutionists-at the University of California as a student; at San Jose State University as a graduate student; and at the Geologic Division of the U.S. Geological Survey. For the interested nonscientist, a good summary of the censorship of many university scientists who speak out against the failed philosophy of evolution is Ben Stein’s “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” (DVD, 2008). Dr. J Harlen Bretz was censored for about 50 years (1923 to 1970s) for his catastrophic flood geology of the channeled scablands of eastern Washington. Bretz’s overwhelming geologic field evidence finally won.
MAJOR CONTRADICTIONS TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF EVOLUTION
Very briefly, several major contradictions to the philosophy of evolution and the scattered-age dating system: For over 20 years now, dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Edmontosaurus (duck-bill dinosaur), and Triceratops (3-horn dinosaur) have been found with soft tissues, blood vessels, bone cells, and blood cells intact-there are over 40 cases of “meat” found in dinosaur fossils. Biochemical decay rates show that these creatures died only several thousand years ago.
Worldwide, hundreds of cultures have said that they lived with dragons (dinosaurs). At the U.S.G.S. originally, the moon rocks were dated at 20 billion years. The age of the Earth was determined by dating meteorite fragments with a scatter of ages from 700 million to 16.5 billion years; but yet the Earth, moon, and Pluto are alleged to be 4.56 billion years old? At talks on planetary science that I give, I have a short list of 22 reasons for the Solar System to be under 10,000 years old. Plus, Darwin did not know that the DNA within a human cell has more information/coding than at least 4,000++PhD theses! Your DNA comes from a Superb Mind!
Albert Einstein, when reflecting on the Universe said, “I’m not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written.”
Physicist Paul A.M. Dirac observed that “God is a mathematician of a very high order and He used advanced mathematics in constructing the universe.” Antony Flew, former philosophy professor at Oxford, gave up on 50 years of atheism with his book, “There is No God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind” (2007). Famous author C.S. Lewis was a former atheist.
The original solar system has been greatly disrupted by catastrophic events. There are dozens of clues. When geology and astronomy understand what the Asteroid Belt (between Mars and Jupiter) and Kuiper Belt (contains Pluto and other dwarf planets) represent, they will not have so many puzzles and confusion in their studies. These Belts are not remnants from the formation of the solar system (modified, materialistic nebular theory of Pierre Simon de Laplace, 1796).
People hike the Northern Rocky Mountains, including our own Glacier National Park, and do not understand the geologic history? I even have a quote of “puzzlement” from a university geologist. Current atheistic Darwinian evolution and evolutionary time scales have placed us in a Dark Age. Even Carbon-14 is found in dinosaur fossils, diamonds, and coals alleged to be tens of millions of years in age. C-14 should be decayed away in a sample in under 100,000 years.
Our futures and our children’s futures will depend on us knowing our True Origins.
