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 Space.com 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.

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.
