Goodbye Darwinism!

The following comes from Science News Online:

Scientists analyzing fragments of a Tyrannosaurus rex’s leg bone have recovered pliable material containing structures that appear to be cells and blood vessels.
Paleontologists usually find only a creature’s hard body parts, such as bones, teeth, or shells, preserved as fossils. In the rare instances when internal organs, muscles, skin, and other soft body parts turn up, the original tissue has been replaced by minerals that create hard replicas, says Mary H. Schweitzer, a paleontologist at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Sometimes, a soft tissue’s shape is recorded by sediments that surround it.
Now, the first report of flexible material from a fossil describes an extraction from the femur, or upper leg bone, of a T. rex that lived about 68 million years ago in what is now Montana.
The researchers dissolved minerals from the fossil by soaking it in a series of slightly alkaline solutions. After a week, much of the remaining material was surprisingly soft and pliable, say the researchers. Many parts of the remains were translucent and fibrous, and they retained their elasticity after repeated cycles of dehydration and rehydration. Schweitzer and her colleagues report their findings in the March 25 Science.
Some stretchy, translucent samples were high in carbon and appeared to be part of a network of blood vessels, says Schweitzer. Similar demineralization experiments on modern-day ostrich bones—with an added step required to digest the collagen strengthening those bones—yielded blood vessels of a similar size and texture, she reports.
The researchers squeezed round, microscopic structures out of the presumed T. rex blood vessels. Those small spheres, which ranged from dark red to deep brown, may be red blood cells, says Schweitzer.
Also, some fibrous remains contained small, elongated features that look like cells called osteocytes, which are found in mature bones.
Finally, a spongy material extracted from the bones triggered a chemical response in tests to detect proteins commonly found in bones of modern chickens and cows.
Using the extraction technique, Schweitzer and her colleagues subsequently recovered what appear to be blood vessels and osteocytes from two other well-preserved specimens of T. rex. They’ve also obtained osteocytes from an 80-million-year-old hadrosaur, a plant-eating dinosaur.
The state of preservation noted in the new study is “improbable but obviously not impossible,” says Cameron J. Tsujita, a paleontologist at the University of Western Ontario in London. The osteocytes are “dead ringers” for those present in living vertebrates, he notes. As for the purported blood cells, he says that he “can’t really think of what else they could be.”
This is a “totally novel discovery,” says Derek E.G. Briggs, a paleontologist at Yale University. The tissue preservation that Schweitzer’s team has described may be more commonplace than scientists might expect, he says.
Additional analyses of the T. rex fossils, as well as of material from other specimens, could provide insight into the early stages of fossilization, says Briggs. Such information may also reveal new details of dinosaur physiology and metabolism.

Protein Molecules simply do not last “Millions of Years”!

These animals were NOT millions of years old.

Evolution on a Macro scale does not exist!

Good Night Charles!

The “Accidental” Atheist

Evolution is a Philosophy. This Philosophy looks to explain that the universe physically and biologically is a self-directed product of an unknown chaotic origin. This universe in the perspective of an evolutionary atheist had no beginning. The mention of God as a creator will send a lot of atheists into an emotional tirade that involves a lot of loud shaky verbiage. This universe in the mind of an atheist evolutionist is a reality that is ruled by unchangeable physical laws simply by mere happenstance, a contradiction in terms.

This universe also has no reason or purpose for life or existence, and is basically a string of dominoes clanging together and falling over in a series of accidental coincidences. Man is the lawgiver in this universe and is in charge of deciding what is morally correct, and this correctness must come from societal constructs or the opinion of the moralist. This morality has seemingly no accountability except to the society that constructed the said morals. The laws and ethics of the society are determined by whatever will create the greater good. Whatever society decides is moral at the time, is the moral “standard”. What if the moral standard was that atheists were to be sterilized? They would have to go along with that standard then.

If atheism is to remain consistent and stay in its own form as being the most rational and logical of all approaches to what is perceived as reality, then it defeats itself and is incapable of a logical defense! Let’s look at it this way; if everything and that includes ALL matter, was mixed together by mere chance and coincidence, without higher intelligence or transcendental powers, the brain itself would then be just an accident! How could you take that brain seriously? So the Philosophy of Evolution is just a construct of coincidence and mere chance! There would be NO validity to any argument or position that an atheist could table then. The atheist in a sense then cancels him/herself out!

By the atheists own confession the atoms form in the atheist’s brain by simple chance, they cannot honestly declare that their view is any more genuine than the opposite view of their opponent on the philosophy/theory of evolution. Christians will state that there is moral absolutes and truth as they will go with the Bible, Gods Word. The atheist cannot disprove a God without resorting to logic depending on the existence of God.

The atheist evolutionist will state that the universe was created by a “Big Bang”. They say in essence that “Nothing” created “Something”, and say that the believers in God believe fairy tales! How ridiculous! How did this “Bang” happen? Evolution also states that the “Higher” living organisms on earth (they can’t say creatures as that would imply a creator) evolved from “Lower” forms of organisms, without a stitch of evidence to conclude that notion. Still no missing link found.

I asked an atheist that was purely a materialist this; “How many senses do you think you have?” He said “five”. “Do you really think that?” He said “Yes”. So I asked him “what would you call thinking then?” He said he would THINK about that one…oh man!

Genesis 1: 26-27 26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
