Comet ISON is alive – and has come back

Comet ISON and its course track, time-lapse photo

Comet C/2012 S1, which astronomers also call Comet ISON, did not die after its close pass at the Sun two days ago. (Source: ABC News) Yesterday morning (Friday 29 November 2012) at 8:11 a.m. EST, an object appeared near the Sun on Comet ISON’s course track. ( Sources: CNN, ABC, Huffington Post) It grew a tail and already has a corona 1000 times the diameter of Earth. So Comet ISON has almost surely passed the Sun. It broke into a few large pieces instead of thousands of little pieces.

MAVEN and NASA’s inconvenient truth

MAVEN lifts off

Yesterday, NASA launched its latest deep-space rocket probe: MAVEN. MAVEN, unlike Curiosity and other earlier missions, will study the atmosphere of Mars, not its ground. NASA hopes MAVEN will help them explain how Mars once held a lot of water (or water flowing very fast), and where that water went. NASA’s spokespeople say they want to know how Mars went from warm and wet to cold and dry in a billion or so years. But the problem isn’t with any process. The problem is with the first conditions.

Texas textbooks: the creation side

Nick Lally weighs in on the Texas textbook controversy, or why there should be one.

The Texas State Board of Education will vote this fall on new biology textbooks for government high schools in Texas. Texas schools buy more textbooks than do most States, so as goes Texas, so goes the rest of the country. Yesterday The New York Times ran a piece about a controversy about the process. Six of twenty-eight members of a panel reviewing biology textbooks are, according to that article’s headline, “creationists.”

Kent Hovind: not a tax protester

Kent Hovind

Kent Hovind, the famous “Doctor Dino,” broke his silence yesterday to reply to many questions about his long-running battle with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). His message: he does not oppose the income tax on principle. But he says the IRS has misapplied the tax code and is asking for tax that he does not truly owe.

Intelligent Design v. Evolution: Ironic?

Flowers like this do not happen by accident, but by design. Intelligent design.

Texas is at it again. The Evolutionists are fighting to remove anything remotely connected to Intelligent Design or Creationism from the classroom by objecting to the appointment of six Creationists to review the science textbooks. What isn’t properly reported is that these six people also happen to be scientists with supporting credentials in their fields. But they also happen to be Creationists. And that scares the daylights out of the Evolutionists who fear anyone knowing that credible scientists do believe in Creationism and Intelligent Design.

Global flood astronomical date range

Comet Halley was launched during the Global Flood

Dr. Walt Brown, nearly three months ago, announced an astronomical fix for the Global Flood. When he did that, he provoked the precise sort of debate scientists ought to have. Brown, with his customary boldness, challenged anyone who doubted him: “Check my math!” Dr. Matthew Jachimstahl, a skeptic (both of the Hydroplate Theory and of the Bible), accepted Brown’s challenge. Brown recently released the full results of that challenge.

Global flood astronomical fix revised

Comet Halley was launched during the Global Flood

Dr. Walt Brown, Director of the Center for Scientific Creation, recently announced a new figure for his astronomical fix for the Global Flood. Like his earlier fix, he based this one on a common close-approach date for comets. But the new fix uses true orbital periods, not the hypothetical periods in the cometary catalog.

Global Flood gains astronomical fix

Comet Halley was launched during the Global Flood

The Center for Scientific Creation and the Creation Science Hall of Fame separately announced today that an astronomical date for the Global Flood is now available.

Resurrecting Sodom

Mount Sodom, where it really happened

I intended to write about the ghoulish Dr. Kermit Gosnell. (Who, by the way, waits for a jury to come in.) But then the reality set in: Kermit Gosnell is only the symptom of an increasingly amoral America. So this piece took a different turn. Years ago Ruth Graham, wife of Billy Graham, made a statement that I thought was a bit over the top: “If God doesn’t soon bring judgment upon America, He’ll have to go back and apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!” Back when Mrs. Graham made this statement, I hardly winced. After all, no one was knocking on my door to have sexual relations with any of my attractive visitors. However, the handwriting was on the wall. We were well on our way to becoming as arrogant, hedonistic, and morally defunct as Sodom – we just didn’t know it.

Censorship: key to sustaining evolution

Does Bill Nye hold to this?

Tina Dupuy recently called on government, or maybe voters (she never made clear), to “save our schools from Creationism.” I’m sure Ms. Dupuy believes her argument is based on logic and credibility. It is not. She has been fooled by censorship masquerading itself as science.
