Scientist fired for discovery

Triceratops horridus as a scientist thinks it might have looked.

Can a scientist lose his job for discovering something new and telling the community about it? It happened recently. And the scientist who lost his job, is going to court to get it back. And that case threatens to pit creation against evolution in a trial to rival Tennessee v. Scopes.

Global warming and prophecy

An illustratio of prophecy

Global warming, (a/k/a climate change), is a peculiar tenet embraced by liberals. Although the modern liberal movement may think they are the founders of this movement, Adam and Eve were the first environmentalists. They were instructed by God to take care of the garden and treat the animals properly (Gen. 1:28). Today uber-liberals have also become uber-environmentalists, and as is the case in other instances, their extremism has perverted noble intentions.

Apollo 11: leaving the moon

Forty-five years ago today, two men finished walking on the moon after two and a half hours. They then began the second most important part of their trip: coming back alive.

Apollo 11: moonwalk

Forty-five years ago, two men (Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin) set foot on a different world. It was the greatest moment in the history of exploration, and a moment men had anticipated for nearly a century.

Apollo 11: the landing

Forty-five years ago this month, with even the days of the week aligning as they did, three men flew a mission called Apollo 11. All three were veteran astronauts, one of the few missions that few with all-veteran crews. NASA needed veterans for this job. Because for the first time, men would land on another world.

Apollo 11: the launch

Exactly 45 years ago at the time of posting (Wednesday July 16, 1969, 13:32 UTC), Apollo 11 blasted off for the moon. At least one gaming developer rates this as a wonder of the world. One can rightly wonder whether America, or anyone in the world, can ever do this kind of project again. Today begins a day-by-day look back at that historic mission.

Calendar: from 360 to 365

Amenemhet I

When did human beings adopt a 365-day year? Why does a circle have 360 degrees in it? What does one question have to do with the other? The answer has to do with the Global Flood, and how that Flood forced a change in the calendar, long after it happened.

Global warming: scam or real?

A global warming conference took place in Copenhagen, and the conferees didn't think to get around as these people do.

De facto President Barack Obama keeps peddling the Global Warming narrative. Of course he would. Global Warming appeals to every “dream from his father” he ever had. If the globe is warming, he has the perfect excuse to do everything his father (whoever he was) dreamed of: taking America down a peg, and de-industrializing the world. So we should examine whether global warming is real – and why its proponents act like scam artists, with no idea what they’re talking about.

Gravity waves – not so fast

The supposed gravity wave map. But is this merely the image of a dust cloud closer to home?

Three months and two days ago, John Kovacs and his team boasted before the world they had found the signature of gravity waves in deep space. This, they said, proved the long-held theory of spatial inflation, the key event in the Big Bang. Now at last they published their findings. And they have to admit they might have it completely wrong.

Giant impact not proven

moon

A team of isotope geologists now say they have definitive proof that a giant impactor, four and a half billion years ago, struck the earth and formed the moon. What they’ve found does not convince even every conventional scientist. A leading creation scientist says this new finding does not change his own conclusion: the giant impact hypothesis is unworkable, and the recent finding is further evidence of his own theory.
