Your System Cleaner

This is not about computer system software, and system cleaners can remove things you want left alone, or have to be deliberately activated. In this case, it is about an important organ. We have read about the eyes, ears, heart, spleen, and other things. Seems right that we should continue this organ recital with a short discussion of the liver.

The liver is extremely important to cleaning us out on the inside and keeping us alive.

If you were to watch a camera or x-ray of the liver in action, it would be rather boring because it doesn't move around like, say, the heart. But it is working. It has many functions to aid in digestion, and it removes many harmful things, including many poisons we inadvertently ingest every day. (Some people may want to give the liver some help by using supplements, but that may not be such a good idea.) Some of us need to have its function tested on a regular basis to see if medications are interfering with it.

Purveyors of evoporn consider the fact-free "explanation" of "it evolved" sufficient, but that strains credulity. Worse, it denies credit to the Master Engineer, who obviously designed such an intricate and efficient system.
Hopefully, you are very careful about what you put into your body. Yet every day your body has to get rid of poisons. In fact, you can’t eat without producing poisons that should kill you. It sounds like a catch-22: don’t eat, and you starve to death; eat, and your body makes poisons that could kill you. How are you still walking around?
The answer lies in one of the most important organs God put in your body — your liver.
The liver is practically a chemical factory, which does hundreds of jobs that keep you alive.

Two Wolves in Tasmania

This entry takes place down south. No, not Arizona, you silly Americans, but south down Australia way, all the way to the island state of Tasmania. For a long time, a critter known as the Tasmanian wolf (or tiger, also the unromantic name of thylacine) was uninhibited. Unfortunately, they are probably extinct now since the last one known died in captivity in 1936.

The dingo is wrongly blamed for the extinction of the thylacine.

The thylacine was not something to roll over and play dead. It had no problem killing fresh meat at chow time, and was not known to scavenge or even return to a previous meal. It was a marsupial. Through evosplaining, marsupials are considered "primitive" and placental mammals are "advanced", but in reality, marsupials and placental mammals were created on the same day. 

Now enter the dingo. Bad dog. Bad! They are opportunist predators, and do a a passel of rotten things. But these "advanced" placental mammals, which are smaller than the fierce thylacines, are given credit (or blame) for their extinction due to Darwinian "competition". This is probably a case of a known criminal receiving blame for a crime for which he was innocent.
Australia’s wild dog, the dingo—classified by some as a subspecies of the wolf, Canis lupus dingo—is certainly viewed by many as sinister and savage, not to be trusted. It has been blamed, with good cause, for mauling sheep, stealing (a British tourist was robbed by a dingo on an Australian beach in 2012) and even ‘murder’. There’s something else the dingo is blamed for, though, that is worth examining. Through competition (for food, habitat, etc.) the dingo is said to have caused the disappearance from mainland Australia of the Tasmanian wolf—a marsupial carnivore also known as the thylacine, or (because of its stripes) Tasmanian tiger.
Dogs/wolves/dingoes are placental mammals, while marsupials (e.g. the kangaroo, koala and possum) have a marsupium, or pouch, in which they carry their young. The thylacine’s scientific name, Thylacinus cynocephalus, means ‘pouched one with a dog’s head’.
Evolutionists have traditionally viewed marsupials as more ‘primitive’ than the ‘more advanced’ placental mammals. Albert Le Souef, then curator of Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, wrote in 1923:

Lizard and Other Finds Fluster Evolutionists

Proponents of atoms-to-anoles evolution are having increasing difficulties in supporting their stories, as evidence continues to mount in favor of special creation. Quite often, they will get all agitated about fossils that they consider ancient, even the "first ancestor" of some critter or another. Then the fossils turn out to be mostly identical to creatures that are living today. One of these is the lizard Megachirella wachtleri.

Fossils of lizards, other critters, and other discoveries are being troublesome to evolutionists.

They got themselves all agitated that this new fossil gave "valuable information" about the alleged evolution of lizards. However, it does nothing of the kind. This so-called ancestor is dated much older than previous fossils — and it is still a lizard. No transitional forms or anything, just evidence that organisms were created to reproduce after their kind, the way the Creator intended. Worse for secularists, they keep uncovering evidence for the Genesis Flood!

In related news, anole lizards diversity. Wake the neighbors, call the press, spread the word! Actually, this is nothing new for creationists, who expect speciation and diversity in the first place.
Evolutionists celebrate the earliest fossil lizard, but have to push back the origin of lizards by 75 million years.
CT scans of a fossil found in the early 2000’s has revealed it to be a lizard. Its location in the Dolomite mountains in Italy requires evolutionists to date it at 240 million Darwin Years. That, however, pushes the origin of lizards 75 million years earlier than evolutionists thought. From the bones, the artwork and the text, though, nothing reveals this animal to be a transitional form. It looks like a lizard one might find scampering about today.

Degenerate Codons and Evolution

It may sound like a scientific insult, but degenerate in the genome context is quite specific. Advocates of universal common descent evolution presuppose their belief system (not pulling the reigns back and stopping to ask if evolution is true in the first place), and working from that starting point. This is why evolutionary scientists were embarrassed when they claimed that certain parts of the human genome had "junk" DNA, and this has been refuted. Still clinging to their faith in naturalism, evolutionists have referred labeled some codon areas as degenerate sites.

Evolutionists referred to some codon areas as degenerate, so evolution could happen there. This is false.

Since evolutionary scientists could not explain why codons had redundancy, and could not understand why the third codon base was different from the first two, it was the maverick that could allow evolution to happen. And there are four layers of instruction. Further research shows that such a belief needs to be put out to pasture. If scientists took the view that the Master Engineer put things together the way he did for specific reasons, they may not be embarrassed so often.
While the idea of codon degeneracy has been promoted for years as a viable place in the genome where evolution can occur and actually be measured, research discoveries over the past decade have increasingly discredited this concept. Perhaps the most exciting discovery is that other codes are embedded within and overlay the codons.
In one study, it was found that a different set of code overlaying the codons instructs cellular protein machinery called transcription factors, which control the expression of genes, where to latch on to the DNA inside genes. While one group of codons delineates the amino acid order in a protein, the exact same sequence of DNA letters can also instruct cellular machinery where to bind to the gene to make the RNA copies needed to make a protein. Researchers called these codes duons.
