Silk Road notes 6: time

Silk Road route tracing

This critique of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s Silk Road exhibit continues with further distortions of history. This includes how Arabic numbers got their name, though they were not Arabic originally.

Creation ex nihilo – intro

Blake's Image of Creation should be a warning to fools who deny God

Since Darwin first wrote On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured (sic) Races in the Struggle for Life (which title was shortened in the 1872 second edition to “The Origin of Species”), the hypothesis of Evolution has had an impact on the educated world. By strongly suggesting that the biblical account of Creation is nothing more than a myth for the uneducated and weak-minded, Evolution has indirectly served as the subliminal evangelist for atheism and agnosticism.

Silk Road notes 3: glass

These notes on the Silk Road exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History continue with a discussion of glass and ceramics. Again the exhibit gives a false impression: that glassmaking and pottery began, or at least were most closely associated, with Islam.

Silk Road notes 2: trade

Silk Road caravan

This article continues the series about the Silk Road exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. As mentioned, the Silk Road exhibit betrays its name and deceives the visitors, individuals, schoolteachers and students who come to view it. Some of the visitors are of those cultures who made formidable contributions. Yet this exhibit omits or gives scant recognition to these contributions. This denies some viewers the knowledge and sense of pride they might otherwise have, if they could learn their heritage contributed to the growth of civilization along the early trade routes. For instance, this Islamic presentation allowed about 20% credit to the Chinese, where the Silk Road began.

Silk Road notes 1: silk

Silk Road caravan

An exhibit, “1001 Inventions” is now showing worldwide, and what appears to be a small section, regarding the Silk Road, is on display at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. The larger professes to be a revelation of a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements by the Muslim world, with a nod to the various faiths and cultures that contributed. However, these faiths and cultures were victims of Muslim jihadists, those who followed in the footsteps of Mohammed and invaded the non-Muslim world over 1400 years – beheaded, slaughtered, raped, plundered, and took ownership of the creativity and advancements made by the besieged, converted survivors.

Wrong number Holder

Eric Holder, or at least his aide, got caught with his pants down.

A senior aide to Attorney General Eric Holder, late Friday afternoon, called his buddies on the Democratic staff of the House Oversight Committee. He shared a scheme to release only part of the information the committee’s chairman wants from the Justice Department. And then he realized: he had dialed the wrong number.

American ignorance aids WH

The Constitution is not dead

 

Where knowledge is a duty, ignorance is a crime.

– Thomas Paine

The American people and their representatives are guilty of dereliction of duty when it comes to the failure to impeachment the criminal in office, Barack Hussein Obama, as well as this criminal administration. America is adding strength to tyranny by giving permission to destroy for yet another two years.

Creation: clash of theories

vapor canopy theory illustrated

The creation science movement has not been able to speak with one voice for years. And now we know why. Less than two weeks ago, a bold commentator broke decades of unproductive silence on the real issue. One man, among all creation scientists, has a unified and comprehensive theory of the Global Flood. That man is Walter T. Brown Jr., and that theory is the Hydroplate Theory. Now we know the real reason why the larger creation movement rejected it out-of-hand. And the grounds were not scientific, and still aren’t.

Media & Dems: evil consortium

James Risen writes for this paper. He told them what he thinks, and it is not pretty.

During the past 5 or more decades we have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of Progressivism.  The degradation of our society and our country, which began slowly and stealthily, has gone into overdrive with such torrents of speed it’s nearly impossible to track.

Sea plankton in earth orbit?

Diatoms, the smallest of sea plankton

The Russian flight director for the International Space Station said this week two cosmonauts had found sea plankton, or traces of them, on the outer hull and window of a Russian module of the International Space Station. If this proves out, they might have proved a key part of the hydroplate theory of the Global Flood without knowing it.
