Scientists Discover Men and Women are Different

Who would have believed that men and women are actually different if scientists had not said so? Actually, most of us already knew that. We have different hardware, software, and firmware. The postmodern political correctness movement is pressuring the American military to lower fitness standards for women to do that same combat jobs as men, which is admitting that the differences between sexes exist. Last I knew, the Marines were not having any of that.

The Luncheon Of The Boating Party, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, 1880-1881
Our obvious differences are can also be seen through genetics. Bill Nye the Leftist Agenda Guy's views on gender have changed (not because of science), and his earlier TV show about the clear science has been edited to reflect his evolving non-science views. Listen up, pilgrim: those who want to deny what God told us back in Genesis about only two sexes are not only Scripture deniers, they are science deniers. We know that secularists try mighty hard to avoid admitting that the Bible is right about something, but they cannot change the truth. There's a passel of genetic differences between men and women, and even between male and female critters. What we also see is an accumulation of mutations, which is devolution.
An article in New Scientist titled “Sex Differences in Human Gene Expression” concluded that “Researchers uncover thousands of genes whose activity varies between men and women.” Specifically, their study found 6,500 genes were differentially expressed. They concluded that men and women are distinctly dimorphic, consequently one result of this fact is that they have very dissimilar disease susceptibilities. The sexual dimorphic traits result mainly from differential expression of the genes that exist in both sexes. These results strongly go against the current politically correct view that the only differences between males and females are a few minor plumbing variations and a couple of small hormones.
To read the rest, click on "Surprise: Men and Women Greatly Differ Genetically". Also recommended is this episode of Dr. Albert Mohler's The Briefing, (which you can listen, download, or read the transcript) that has two pertinent segments: Bill Nye again, and the pregnant "man".

Once again, the Bible is proven right. In this case, scientists discover what God said and what everybody knows: men and women are not the same. The difference in this study is that there are profound differences on the genetic level.

Underground Agents of Regeneration

They work underground, seldom seen. There are many of them, and they are working to make our lives better. Sounds like a spy movie or something, but in this case, the underground is literal. We're talking about earthworms. Some folks only think of them when a robin yanks one out of the ground or someone uses them for fishing. Farmers have greater understanding and appreciation of them.

There are bunches of earthworms in the soil, and they are just doing worm stuff. They eat, burrow, poop — and their activity benefits the soil, therefore, benefits us as well. Since they eat waste and since billions of people do not have proper sanitation facilities, USAID has a project called Tiger Toilet to use the wrigglers in breaking down human waste products! Initial results are promising, with a benefit of comparative lack of odor. For more about this, click on "Testing the 'Tiger Toilet'" and "The Results Are In: Tiger Toilets Field Trial Findings".

In his wisdom, God gave us earthworms to help regenerate soil and break down waste, and we're using the creatures. Creepy evolutionists at Darwin's Ranch are stealing credit from God and giving worms credit for the ecology that led to the Cambrian Explosion. What are those ranch hands smoking, anyway?

Despite their size, earthworms are surprisingly helpful creatures. They occasionally venture above ground in broad daylight but are mostly night crawlers. They are best known for their underground habits, such as recycling organic waste, aerating soil, and helping organic matter to decompose.
Earthworms are detritivores—garbage eaters—the ultimate in dirt-digesting junk-food consumers. They eat almost anything—scraps of fruit, morsels of dead animal flesh, leaf litter, etc. As an earthy, underground version of “filter feeders,” they ingest whatever is buried and rotting in topsoil or within near-surface soil. Meadows and pastures are crawling with worms! Their numbers may reach above 300,000 per acre, especially in chalky clay soil. The aggregate weight of a dairy farm’s earthworms likely outweighs the total weight of livestock grazing above them.

Our Creator has blessed us with crawly things. Earthworms are beneficial for soil and waste disposal as well as other ways of helping us.

Tiny Motors that Help Keep You Alive

Do you hear the trillions of motors working inside you at this very moment? Of course not. They're tiny, and they're basically swimming. Bacteria and most cells have them, and the bacteria have flagella that motor around performing their own functions. Cells have something very similar called cilia, but they are built quite differently than flagella.

These motors are part of the equipment that God gave us to help keep us going. They are also very frustrating for evolutionists, as their specified complexity cannot be explained by evolutionary conjectures, and evolutionary scientists admit that one did not lead to the evolution of the other.
Inside your body are trillions of little hair-like whips attached to most of your cells. They are constantly moving, pushing debris out of your body and sensing the world around them. A couple of centuries ago, biologists assumed they were useless remnants of bacterial evolution. Now medical researchers have found those ideas were dead wrong. These structures are essential for life and are found in virtually every organism—from algae and plants to reptiles and mammals.

The complexity of these structures, which contain functional motors, astounds evolutionists, who cannot explain how so many intricate, interacting parts could arise together. Yet they remain doggedly certain an answer is within reach. Just one problem—they also have to explain how these motors adopted such different essential roles within each creature on the planet!

Trillions of unbelievably small and intricate motors are inside you, helping keep you alive. They defy evolutionary speculations and illustrate the ingenuity of our Creator.

Evolutionists Get Silly with Silicon

Silicon is something that we hear about quite frequently, since it has many variations and applications. You've heard of silica? There's some. The stuff is found all over the place, especially since ninety percent of Earth's crust has it. We use it in many forms, including concrete, porcelain, abrasives, and purified silicon is used in electronics. Found in nature, too. Not so much in animal life, though. Some evolutionists have the notion that silicon could be the basis of life on other planets.

Since they were able to force bacteria to use silicon. Big deal. Still, they figure that since silicon is chemically similar to carbon, and silicon might be abundant on some other planet, then mayhaps life evolved using silicon. The first problem is that they presupposed evolution and denied the work of the Creator, then assumed evolution elsewhere in the universe. That's what they do. It's disheartening to see scientists using bad logic and ignoring basic chemistry in their pursuit of affirming evolutionary dogma with "maybe" and "perhaps".
Recent research from the laboratory of Frances Arnold shows, for the first time, that bacteria can be made to create organosilicon compounds. Of course, this does not prove that silicon- or organosilicon-based life is possible, but according to contributor Charles Q. Choi it “shows that life could be persuaded to incorporate silicon into its basic components”.
Carbon is the backbone of the most important biological molecules, including DNA, RNA, proteins, fats, sugars, hormones, etc. Even calcium-rich bones are formed on a carbon-based protein scaffold. Life on Earth is based exclusively on carbon. The chemistry of carbon permits it to form the long-chain molecules, which serve as the basis for life.

Some evolutionists are manipulating bacteria in hopes that it will show the possibility of evolution from silicon. These scientists conveniently ignore basic chemistry and biology in the pursuit of their false narrative.

Still Unclear on the Evolution Concept

There's a great deal of confusion about the meaning of the word evolution, and Darwin's Disciples use it to their advantage. Several different definitions exist, but the usual perception is that it means particles-to-poet common-ancestor evolution, which is supposed to be purposeless. Proponents of this kind of evolution often conflate evolution with natural selection or variation, and then mislead people (perhaps even misleading themselves) by presenting something that is not evolution as evolution. Then these sidewinders can say that they have "proof" of their brand of evolution. This also enables the blatant lie that creationists who deny evolution are "science deniers".

But do they even know what it means? We expect people to say societal, cultural, linguistic, and other things as evolution, and that seldom invokes Darwinian principles. There are often presentations of evolution that are animistic and pantheistic, giving evolution a kind of intelligence and teleology, which makes evolution a deity with the ability to choose. But they deny the Creator who gave them life and a nice planet to live on. So evolution is an intelligent designer? Can't have it both ways, kids.

More obfuscation occurs when Darwinian ideas as used in an intelligently designed program in meteorology. Yes, you heard me right. Evolutionary thinking is becoming increasingly fatuous, especially when applied to social systems and technology. To read some really wacky material on deranged Darwinism, click on "Pretending Intelligent Design Is Like Evolution".

Evolutionists confuse people on the meaning of the word "evolution" to improve their ability for deception, but they are confused themselves. Programming for meteorology using Darwinian ideas? Spare us.

More Dinosaur Protein Fragments Interfere with Evolution

Several things make fundamentalist evolutionists go haywire. Two of them are the increasing evidence against Lucy as a part of human lineage, and the soft tissues, blood cells, collagen, and the like in dinosaur bones. Bring these topics up, and the hands at the Darwin Ranch have to work overtime at the Propaganda Mill to defend their paradigm.

Made at the Breaking News Generator
Mary Schweitzer took a lot of heat for her studies in dinosaur soft tissues. Evolutionists didn't cotton to the news and threw her under the prairie schooner, saying that there must have been some foul-ups somewhere because they couldn't handle the implications: soft tissues and so on can't last millions of years. That indicates they're not as old as evolutionists claim. Schweitzer tried to come up with a rescuing device involving iron as a preservative, but that was untenable. Discoveries kept on rolling in, none of them friendly to long ages, but fit the biblical creation timeline.
When Jurassic Park hit the box office in 1993, the idea that dinosaur DNA—as in the movie—or proteins could still be available for study in the modern world seemed to be pure fantasy. And 12 years later, when Dr. Mary Schweitzer found red blood cells and blood vessels inside a fossilized dinosaur bone, much of the scientific community still found the idea preposterous. After all, how could fragile biological molecules or soft tissues be preserved for millions of years?

Mary Schweitzer published papers in 2007 and 2009 asserting that her team had isolated collagen from dinosaur bone. In the face of continuing skepticism, she and others have continued applying new technology to old bones, seeking to prove that that the proteins they have found are the real deal, not modern contaminants. The latest additions to this growing body of research came from two far-flung research centers, again asserting that dinosaur soft tissues and proteins have survived not only in fossilized material believed to be 80 million years old, but even in fossils dated 195 million years old.
To keep reading the bad news for Darwin, click on "Preservation of Dinosaur Protein Fragments Flies in the Face of Evolution’s Millions-of-Years". For a similar report with additional information, see "Definitely Dinosaur Protein". Also, if you want a technical report, for free, by microscopist Mark Armitage, "Preservation of 'Triceratops horridus' Tissue Cells from the Hell Creek Formation, MT", the instructions for how to obtain that are in the right-hand column in this post at The Question Evolution Project.

Evolutionists are upset by reports of soft tissues, blood cells, and more in dinosaur bones. More news is bad news for them, but support the biblical creation timeline quite nicely. Dr. Schweitzer confirmed her previous work.

Careful, Those Plankton are Armed!

Way back yonder in the olden days, I was taught that single-celled organisms were "simple". Lots of people were for a mighty long time. Then, better technology helped better research, and lo and behold, now we know that single-celled organisms are not so simple. This puts a burr under the saddles of Darwinoids because it goes against their narrative. It also startles them when lower life forms pack firepower.

It was amazing enough to learn that certain shrimp were looking to slap leather with their version of pistols, Now we learn that some dinoflagellates have a form of Gatling gun firepower. That's right, the tiny critters go a-hunting! Evolutionists expect simple things to be uncomplicated and cooperative with the story that simple things evolved into more complex things. They tend to invoke the non-science of the gaps, "convergent evolution". Creationists know that life has specified complexity that was given to it by our Creator.
Plankton is the general name for the tiny creatures that drift with ocean tides and currents and form the basis of the ocean’s food chain. Phytoplankton (plants) undergo photosynthesis and are made up mainly of diatoms. Zooplankton (animals) include protozoa which feed on diatoms, and baleen whales (the non-toothed variety) feast on both kinds of plankton.
To finish reading, click on "Lowly Plankton Packs High-Caliber Heat".

Creationists know that things were designed for their own purposes. Evolutionists believe the simpler organisms are very simple, and that's why they are surprised so often by new discoveries. In this case, dinoflagellates have fire power for hunting.
