Fossils raise questions about human ancestry Australopithecus sediba is a mosaic of modern and primitive traits.
Post Date: 2011-09-08 19:02:50 by Mad Dog
New descriptions of Australopithecus sediba fossils have added to debates about the species' place in the human lineage. Five papers published today in Science describe the skull, pelvis, hands and feet of the ancient hominin unearthed three years ago in South Africa. The papers reveal a curious mix of traits, some found in apes and earlier Australopithecus fossils, and others thought to be unique to Homo erectus -- the tall, thin-boned hominin that emerged around 2 million years ago in eastern Africa and colonized Europe and Asia -- and its descendants, including modern humans. This mix of features has left palaeoanthropologists unsure of how A. sediba relates to other ancient human ...

The fundamental facts of the presidential race at this moment are that unemployment is high, the economy is by far the most important issue to American voters, and President Obama's handling of economic questions is overwhelmingly unpopular. Republican presidential hopefuls Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann and others are hammering the president daily on matters of job creation and economic growth. Now some of Obama's activist allies and supporters in the press are engaged in a sharply focused effort to change the subject. Even as economic anxieties continue to rise, some of the nation's premier political journalists are consumed with the alleged influences of obscure ...
EVOLUTION IMPOSSIBLE! [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2011-09-02 00:30:28 by A K A Stone
Were sure youve heard this claim before, probably hundreds of times: Science has proven evolution is fact. Its like a strange Darwinian chant that emanates from atheist blogs and secular universities. Too bad (for them) its not true. In fact, refuting evolution doesnt require complicated equations or lab experimentsthough those do the job, too. Just remember the two fundamental flaws we can use to show evolution to be, well, not even scientifically viable. Whered You Get Your Information, Bub? Everything that makes up your body requires genetic information. Youve got hands and feet because your genes code for it. The same is ...
Neanderthal sex boosted immunity in modern humans
Post Date: 2011-08-28 19:57:29 by buckeroo
Sexual relations between ancient humans and their evolutionary cousins are critical for our modern immune systems, researchers report in Science journal. Mating with Neanderthals and another ancient group called Denisovans introduced genes that help us cope with viruses to this day, they conclude. Previous research had indicated that prehistoric interbreeding led to up to 4% of the modern human genome. The new work identifies stretches of DNA derived from our distant relatives. In the human immune system, the HLA (human leucocyte antigen) family of genes plays an important role in defending against foreign invaders such as viruses. The authors say that the origins of some HLA class 1 ...

Beneath Jobs Report Surface Lies Some Ugly Truths
Post Date: 2011-08-05 13:57:04 by Capitalist Eric
Before getting too excited about the modest uptick in net job creation and a slight downward move in the unemployment rate, its probably worth a look under the hood. As is usually the case, there is far more than meets the eye to the Labor Departments report that the economy added 117,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell to 9.1 percent. Lets start with the reality that fewer people actually were working in July than in June. According to a Bureau of Labor Statistics breakdown, there were 139,296,000 people working in July, compared to 139,334,000 the month before, or a drop of 38,000. But the job creation number was positive and the unemployment rate went ...
Evolution of Human 'Super-Brain' Tied to Development of Bipedalism, Tool-Making
Post Date: 2011-04-24 14:07:24 by Sebastian
CU-Boulder researcher John Hoffecker, shown here working at a site in Russia dating back 45,000 years, believes there is mounting archaeological evidence for the evolution of a human "super-brain" no later than 75,000 years ago that spurred a modern capacity for novelty and invention. Scientists seeking to understand the origin of the human mind may want to look to honeybees -- not ancestral apes -- for at least some of the answers, according to a University of Colorado Boulder archaeologist. CU-Boulder Research Associate John Hoffecker said there is abundant fossil and archaeological evidence for the evolution of the human mind, including its unique power to create a ...

Radiometric Dating: Making Sense of the Patterns
Post Date: 2011-03-17 00:06:33 by A K A Stone
Radiometric dating methods sometimes yield conflicting results, but the technique itself is scientific and reliable, and once the results are interpreted in a biblical framework, they yield clear patterns that help us better understand the earths history since creation six thousand years ago. Part Two of this series showed that the same rocks can yield very different ages, depending on which radiometric dating technique you use. These inconsistent results are due to the problems of inheritance and contamination, which cause the rocks chemistry to differ from the assumptions of standard radioactive clocks.

Dinosaurs from Anglo-Saxon and other Records
Post Date: 2011-03-12 18:56:46 by A K A Stone
I have spoken on the subject of the Table of Nations and the early post-Flood history of Europe, in Germany, Belgium and at many places now in England, and what surprised me at first was how, during question time, the subject turns so quickly to that of dinosaurs. Do they appear in the early chronicles? Do descriptions of them exist? And so on. So here I have set out as many examples of the mention of dinosaurs in the early records as I could immediately find, although there are doubtless many other instances to be noticed. Some of the examples mentioned here come from the very records that we have just been considering concerning the descent of the nations. The progression is only ...
The Created World A Creationist Perspective: Part 1
Post Date: 2011-03-01 07:43:28 by A K A Stone
Creationists develop models like these . . . by studying the facts of Gods Word and Gods world. In the beginning, the everlasting God spoke both time and the universe into existence. At first, the earth was without form and unfilled. Over three days, God gave form to the sky, sea, and land. Then, on the following three days, God filled these voids with abundant reminders of His glory. Included in the original material of creation was water, out of which God created the earth. This unique planet had just the right mix of chemicals and the right mass to hold a life-sustaining atmosphere. God then raised a landmass, similar to Rodinia (see below). As the waters rushed off the ...
Pssst! Don't tell the creationists, but scientists don't have a clue how life began

Exactly 20 years ago, I wrote an article for Scientific American that, in draft form, had the headline above. My editor nixed it, so we went with something less dramatic: "In the Beginning
: Scientists are having a hard time agreeing on when, where andmost importanthow life first emerged on the earth." That editor is gone now, so I get to use my old headline, which is even more apt today. Dennis Overbye just wrote a status report for The New York Times on research into life's origin, based on a conference on the topic at Arizona State University. Geologists, chemists, astronomers and biologists are as stumped as ever by the riddle of life. After its ...
Same Sex Couple Turned Away At Creation Museum

(Petersburg, Ky.) - A gay couple says they paid for tickets, but were denied admission to an event at the Creation Museum in Petersburg. The Kentucky Enquirer reports the couple planned to attend a Date Night event at the Christianity-centered museum on February 11. One of the people reportedly involved, John Meador, is a blogger for alternative publication LEO Weekly in Louisville. Three of us (myself, my girlfriend and our friend Brandon) passed the security checkpoint despite minor scrutiny. We arrived right at 6:00 p.m.; (Creation Museum founder) Ken Ham was just beginning his talk of love in the museums special effects room, and we were eager to hear ...

CARBON 14 AND POTSSIUM-ARGON DATING
Post Date: 2011-02-09 21:42:56 by A K A Stone
Carbon 14 dating, what is it, and what are the problems with it? The earths atmosphere is about 100 miles thick. It contains 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, .06% carbon dioxide, and .0000765% radioactive carbon (c14), which mix equally with the other normal CO2 by the wind currents. This radioactive carbon 14 is inhaled and absorbed by animals and plants. The sun produces carbon 14 by striking the atmosphere and converting the nitrogen (atomic weight of 14) to carbon (atomic weight of 12) by knocking a few particles off of it. Because the carbon came from nitrogen, it is unstable and radioactive. From testing, scientists believe that carbon 14 breaks back down to nitrogen at the rate of ...
Bedbug Cases On Pace to Triple in NYC Public Schools (anchor baby kooties)

Christian schools lose appeal bid in UC case
Post Date: 2010-10-16 21:25:48 by Skip Intro
Christian schools lose appeal bid in UC case The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal Tuesday from Christian schools that want the University of California to grant college-prep credit for courses with religious viewpoints - using textbooks, UC says, that replace science with the Bible. The justices, without comment, denied a hearing to the Association of Christian Schools International, which accused the university of violating freedom of speech and religion with its policy on the classes applicants take in high school. UC requires certain high school courses for admission and says it reviews their content to make sure they cover subjects that incoming students need. University ...
Canyon Rapids and Rapid Formations

What Is Science?
Post Date: 2010-09-03 09:21:43 by A K A Stone
Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic. Dr. Scott Todd, Kansas State University, Nature 401(6752):423, Sept. 30, 1999 What You Will Learn Many people do not realize that science was actually developed in Christian Europe by men who assumed that God created an orderly universe. If the universe is a product of random chance or a group of gods that interfere in the universe, there is really no reason to expect order in nature. Many of the founders of the principle scientific fields, such as Bacon, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, were believers in a recently created earth. The idea that science ...

A Response to the Old-Earth Advocacy of Campbell et al., PCA Geologists on the Antiquity of the Earth
Post Date: 2010-08-19 22:58:26 by A K A Stone
The May/June 2010 volume of Modern Reformation, published by Dr. Michael Horton (Westminster Seminary, Escondido), noted for his radio program, The White Horse Inn, included a note by eight geologists who are members of the PCA. It can be accessed at www.modernreformation.org. In the article, these men propose that the denomination accept the old-earth view of Genesis based on arguments from the discipline of geology. This response was developed to demonstrate to laymen that their arguments are neither based on proper authority nor are scientifically compelling. It will also show important connections between prehistory and Enlightenment secularism. All of these considerations should drive ...
The Evolutionary Belief System
Post Date: 2010-08-10 20:48:07 by A K A Stone
Several times during our session of the annual conference of the United Methodist Church (held in western Pennsylvania in June) I heard the following phrase spoken quite passionately: I believe in evolution! We, of course, are free to declare what we believe in the United States of America. But when I heard that phrase, and the use of the word believe, it was revealing to me and many colleagues that the Darwinian Evolutionary worldview is fundamentally a belief system. Also, I realize that the evolutionary world itself is in flux in terms of conflicting interpretations of evidence and assumptions among its scientists; the evolutionary establishment is not as unified as it wants ...
