Darwinism and Anthropic Global Warming? Myths today, jokes tomorrow.

Pic by my buddy Cowboy Bob.   

Thanks, Bob!   Someday people will laugh at the very idea of evolution by mutations via natural selection and wonder at the ignorance of 20th Century and early 21st Century geology concerning the fossil layers.    They will absolutely laugh out loud at the idea that cells and DNA just kind of banged together by chance!   Hahahahahahaha!!!

 Evolutionary Truth by Piltdown Superman


Welcome to the home of "The Question Evolution Project". We are hit with dubious evidence for the "fact" of evolution. Contrary evidence is suppressed. That is against the true spirit of scientific inquiry. Darwin said, "A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question". Articles and links to creation resources are presented here so people can learn something besides atheistic propaganda.

Nye Unto Impossible?

As most of you probably know, Bill "I'm Not A Scientist But I Play One On TV" Nye let fly with an anti-creationist video that got him into trouble with creationists. Ken Ham, Dr. Georgia Purdom and Answers in Genesis issued a debate challenge, followed by an additional challenge.


An update in Ken Ham's October 25,2012 Weblog has additional information:
A number of people have asked Answers in Genesis if we would be open to the possibility of debating the TV personality known as “Bill Nye the Science Guy” (of PBS TV and the Disney Channel)—after Nye’s harsh anti-creationist video went viral on YouTube. 
At last count, over 4.8 million people have watched him make a number of misrepresentations about the creationist position. We posted our own rebuttals to YouTube (“Bill Nye, Creationism is Highly Appropriate for our Children” and “Ken Ham Responds to Bill Nye ‘The Humanist Guy’”). We did publicly challenge Bill Nye to a debate on my blog, but we have also made a formal invitation. 
I wanted to let you know that a few weeks ago, we sent a letter to Mr. Nye in Seattle (and also to his agent in New York City), suggesting that he participate in a creation-evolution debate. You see, we had heard through a nationally known reporter with the secular media that Mr. Nye had agreed in principle to debate with one of our PhD scientists. The reporter told us that Mr. Nye’s had indicated that if his expenses would be covered, he would seriously consider a debate. 
In our letter to Nye, we suggested that the debate theme could be something like, “Which model of origins, creation or evolution, is confirmed by observational science?” (and we have offered him the opportunity to come up with an alternative topic). We also proposed that our debate advocate be Dr. Georgia Purdom of AiG, who holds a doctorate in molecular genetics. And we added that the debate would not necessarily be limited to biological topics, which is Dr. Purdom’s field. We are awaiting Nye’s response.
People are making excuses for Bill Nye similar to those offered by (and for) Richard Dawkins. These are along the lines of refusing to dignify creation science because it is not "real" science. Such remarks are ridiculous even on the surface. A simple reply to offer the excuse-makers is, "If there is no evidence and no science for creationism, then evolutionists can scientifically disprove their views quite handily and shut the rest of us up". Nye probably knows, however, that creationists tend to win the debates.

Earlier, I had stated that Nye's remarks got him into trouble with creationists. However, his remarks are troublesome to scientists as well — or should be, since Nye is a propagandist for evolutionism. He made logical fallacies such as conflation ("bait and switch"), appeal to emotion, false assertions and more. In addition, he claims that evolution is essential to scientific progress, and that creationism is a hindrance to it, but that is the opposite of the truth. Such behavior and lack of knowledge about science itself should be embarrassing to evolutionary scientists.

Ian Juby shows the glaring errors of Bill Nye's remarks in the following video. Then he discusses "junk" DNA and more. But first, I have to mention an error that Mr. Juby made. He mentioned that Apollo 8 landed on the moon. Actually, it was the first manned spacecraft to go around the moon in 1968. The first spacecraft to land on the moon is Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969. Aside from misspeaking on that, Mr. Juby's points are still valid.

It would be amazing if Bill Nye was willing to debate an actual scientist like Georgia Purdom because she has the chops to reveal him as a low-grade teacher who is in way over his head when real science is mentioned.    Very much like the fear that Richard Dawkins or PZ Myers has that keeps them from debating Ken Ham or Jonathan Sarfati: 

Richard Dawkins, the Cowardly Clown

In keeping with his constant attention getting shenanigans and his equally constant absconding from debating apt challengers via a barrage of illogical and excuses, the moniker of cowardly clown fits Richard Dawkins more than ever (see Send in the Clowns – Richard Dawkins Obliges).
Enter Jonathan Sarfati (PhD in chemistry), senior scientist at Creation Ministries International, who recently published the book “The Greatest Hoax on Earth? Refuting Dawkins on Evolution.” Interestingly, Jonathan Sarfati sought to publish the book by the time that the 2010 Global Atheist Convention—billed as “The Rise of Atheism”—of March 12-14 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center in Australia.
The most intelligent, well informed and vociferous atheists in the world, including Richard DawkinsDan BarkerPZ Myers, et al, were challenged to debate while their worldwide choir was gathered in one place and yet, one by one they each found excuses to cower from debate even whilst proclaiming to their adherents the intellectual superiority of atheism.

Well, Jonathan Sarfati and his book were ready to go but, as if marching in lockstep, each celebrity atheist stuck their nose in the air and ran away to hide in the comfort of those who actually congratulate and defend them for their unwillingness and inability to publically debate their views with a real life opponent who is not a straw-man of their own making.

Here is Richard Dawkins safe and
comfortable with his preferred audience

Meanwhile, the Atheist Foundation of Australia, which sponsored the atheist convention, wasted money during a time of worldwide recession and natural disaster purchasing bus ads that read, “Atheism – celebrate reason.”
Come again!?!?!

How do they celebrate reason whilst refusing to engage in reasoning?
It seems as if a more apt slogan would be “Atheism - Celibate Reason."
Thus, overall “The Rise of Atheism” has given way to the furthering fall of atheism: they should thank no God for the atheistic indoctrination of children of which many of them are so very fond.
As an aside: Jonathan Sarfati is a World Chess Federation (FIDE) Master and was the New Zealand national chess champion 1987-1988 AD. He is known for playing a dozen chess games at the same time while blindfolded.

Here is his new book:
Also with a new book challenging Richard Dawkins is John Blanchard whose, Dealing with Dawkins, is sure to be ignored as well:
Jonathan Sarfati recently moved from down under to the USA and he will surely be upsetting the Dawkinsian choir to no end. Here are some more of his books including “By Design” which is the first book on intelligent Design by a creationist:

Global Temperatures Stopped Rising 16 Years Ago, According to 2012 Data






By Timothy H. Lee
Thursday, October 18 2012
Think of the Solyndra scandal. Now imagine thousands of Solyndras. That would have been the consequence inflicted by his [Al Gore's] agenda if he’d had his way.

Following this week’s presidential debate, CNN moderator Candy Crowley conceded that Mitt Romney had been correct on substance during his celebrated confrontation over Libya with Barack Obama.
Crowley went on to lament that time constraints prevented her from introducing other audience questions, specifically emphasizing “global warming” among the topics. Somehow, it seems likely that the question she had in mind flowed from the usual, off-the-shelf alarmist orthodoxy, as opposed to the truly remarkable news released just this week.

Namely, the following headline and revelation from London’s Daily Mail: “Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago, Reveals Met Office Report Quietly Released.” 


“The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week. The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures. This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.” 

The conclusion derives from over 3,000 disbursed temperature measuring points on land and sea across the globe. This also means that the current sixteen-year plateau matches the sixteen-year period of warming between 1980 and 1996 that triggered nearly two decades of global warming hysteria. In fact, this means that since 1880, when the Industrial Revolution was just underway and measurement of global temperature data began, our globe has warmed a whopping… wait for it… 0.75 degree Celsius, or just over 1 degree Farenheit.

Naturally, global warming alarmists quickly attempted to downplay the news. Phil Jones, who serves as Director of the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, “dismissed the significance of the plateau,” according to the Daily Mail, “saying that 15 or 16 years is too short a period from which to draw conclusions.” 

Well, 15 or 16 years apparently wasn’t “too short a period from which to draw conclusions” when the period in question was the 1980 – 1996 span of temporary global warming. Incidentally, that temporary span itself followed a period of global cooling that had climate alarmists and such media institutions as Time and The New York Times predicting mass starvation and global cataclysm from a new Ice Age.

Regardless, the name Phil Jones should ring a bell.

That’s because Professor Jones was a central figure in the 2009 “Climategate” scandal that exposed the fraudulent “science” behind global warming hysteria. In 2009, over 3,000 emails and documents from East Anglia revealed a coordinated effort among Prof. Jones and others to conceal evidence, blacklist scientists with whom they disagreed and even “redefine what the peer-review literature is” to squelch opposition. As we at CFIF noted at the time, the following damning communications were among those leaked:

“The fact is we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty we can’t.” 

“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.” 

“If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the U.K., I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone… We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind.” 

“Try and change the received date! Don’t give those skeptics something to amuse themselves with.” 

“I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin and I will keep them out somehow – even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!” 

Speaking of discredited global warming alarmists, where does this leave Al Gore?

Gore claimed in his 1992 book Earth in the Balance that looming global warming meant that, “We must make the rescue of the environment the central organizing principle for civilization.” He also demanded a “Global Marshall Plan” to reorder civilization itself in order to stop the impending climate Armageddon. In 2008, Gore was still at it, predicting that “the entire north polarized cap will disappear in five years.” 

Think of the Solyndra scandal. Now imagine thousands of Solyndras. That would have been the consequence inflicted by his agenda if he’d had his way. And for no reason whatsoever, according to nearly two decades of temperature data that have accumulated since that time.

Since 1996, the world has witnessed an enormous increase in carbon output as nations like China and India have rapidly industrialized. If man-caused global warming theory was correct, then during that period we would have presumably witnessed a consequent increase in temperatures.
Instead, no change.

So climate alarmists were wrong in predicting global cooling catastrophe in the 1970s. Now the data shows that they were wrong in predicting global warming catastrophe in the 1990s.

We can only speculate what they’ll predict next. But we can be certain that whatever agenda they demand will carry a hefty pricetag, along with more millions of dollars in grants and honoraries for themselves.

CO2 is plant food.   We know this.  The temperatures of Earth are a very complex set of variables involving cloud density and airborne moisture and ice/snow cover but above all, far above all, is the activity of the Sun.   When the Sun is active the Earth will warm and when the Sun is quieter the temperatures go down.   Mankind can do nothing at all about what the Sun will or will not do.   But silly people can be fooled by the evil plots of snake-oil salesmen like Al Gore and the anti-science "scientists" like Michael Mann and Phil Jones.   When you don't have any proof, fake it?   Hey, it works for Darwinists.   You can STILL find Haeckel charts in textbooks!!!  Darwinism learned long ago the the Big Lie lasts the longest.

Thanks for the kind words! Do you see that picture of a dog? It's a Pointer, because I write some comments and introductions, then point people to the good stuff.

Is this site made by a troll, or just an ignorant religious site?

Since when has a creationist ever won a debate against the science of evolution? EVER?

It has never once happened, and would have been well documented if this was the case. It would completely revolutionize science as we know it, but the ancient book of unicorns (https://answersingenesis.org/bible-questions/unicorns-in-the-bible/) does not offer any evidence at all. None, zip.

So, please explain how a bunch of ancient dudes who barely knew anything about the universe around them who wrote a book of unicorns and stuff, are more correct than modern scientists.

Oh, you say God wrote it? Interesting, because the print on the inside cover of every copy has a publisher, written by man-- who just says God said those things...

Keep trying.
