I am going to praise an organization that is in no way connected to any Creationist or Intelligent Design or Darwinist or any other -ist. This organization is simply attempting to do science. I know a number of ID and Creationist websites/organizations that are doing good science without the Darwin censors standing over them and you can look and find many of them on my links section. I excerpt or reprint articles from several sites, making my readers well aware of them and the information one can obtain from them. However, this time I am mentioning a site unconnected to Creation Science or ID. These people are unusual in that they have no affiliation with any ID or Creation-oriented sites and yet they are willing do do real science!
Within their disciplines, plenty of scientists are involved in operational science where Darwinism is totally irrelevant. In fact, the only operational science that involves Darwinism is, well, I cannot think of one. Only historical and fantasy operatives use and need Darwinism. It is not in any way relevant to actual rubber-meets-road testing or analysis.
The secular organization that is treating origins science like SCIENCE is the...

Allow me to present two of the pages that the site presents to visitors interested in the million dollar prize offered.
Have you noticed that there are authors from all camps listed here? Stanley Miller and Stephen C. Meyer in the same book list? How can this be? Because this organization is not being driven by worldview, they are genuinely offering a way for scientists to come up with a plausible theory of life coming from non-life and they are not going to accept any just-so stories. My hat is off to them! Here is the main question:
I think it is fair to say that this secular scientific organization has thrown down the gauntlet to Darwinists. Before you can publish any more cladograms and make any more ludicrous claims about how organisms "adapted" by never-revealed magic wandish means, come up with a way that life could have formed on Earth. I have often been chided for not understanding where the current study of abiogenesis is going and I can put that rumor to rest. It is here at this site where any researcher worth his salt who has done anything of significance will present his or her information. You will note that no one has claimed the prize. Read the requirements and consider just how big a jump it is from mud to molecular machine. Then think again about the massive jump required to go from bacteria to other forms of life. I suspect it would be easier for the cow to actually jump over the moon...heck, do backflips over the moon wearing a blindfold!
For you Christians out there that are so quick to adopt Theistic evolution, you really should think that one over. Why would God use a cruel process of millions of years of death and struggle to produce a creation He said He made "good" in six days? Better that Christians open their eyes to the fairy-tale nature of Darwinist claims before agreeing with any one of them. Would God make a simple one-celled organism, set it loose and see if it evolved into anything worthwhile? Is that logical? Do men build a house by tossing a two-by-four onto an empty lot? There is nothing about Darwinism that is consistent with the God of the Bible and there is nothing about Darwinism that is consistent with operational science and there certainly is nothing about Darwinism that fits into the scientific method, for every time it has been tested it has failed the test. It only lives on as blind faith propagated by those who will seek for any refuge that does not include God, no matter how pathetic or unreasonable.
The minimal requirement of this organization would not quite get us all the way to life, as they are not integrating fully the meta-information required into the question, so that the kind of life that would be proposed by a successful applicant would be quite a bit short of the mark of the life that is found on our planet today. I thought it would be good for readers to understand the immensity of the task for primordial ooze to make itself into a living being of the simplest kind. Statistically speaking it cannot happen. But this particular site will give you a chance at trying...Including all of you Darwinist scientists named Steve!
Silly Darwinist! Natural selection is for already-formed organisms! It is a part of the design for the promotion and preservation of the kinds of organisms designed by God from the beginning. Natural selection works with pre-existing information within the genome to select the features that are most likely to survive in a particular environment. This is why we have Polar Bears and Sun Bears. This is why we have speciation, because it is the result of a vast amount of information being coded into the cell in DNA. Speciation did not create organisms, it is a quality of the organism or a process associated with organisms. Darwinists have been labeling speciation as "evolution" for years but it is time to call them out on their lies.
150 plus years of opportunities to prove Darwinism. 150 plus years to find an organism that is gaining and adding information to its DNA string by means of mutation. 150 plus years of fruit flies and bacteria and billions of dollars and billions of hours spent fruitlessly. Small pun. Darwinism is built on suppositions made long before we understood much about organisms or the catastrophic nature of the sedimentary rocks or the actions of techtonic plates or the conditions necessary to form an ice age or the driving force behind the concept of Darwinism. The world did not understand that Darwinism was religious rather than scientific in nature. It is slowly beginning to realize that it has in fact been had.
