Radioactive debate on the Hydroplate Theory

Radioactive decay chains. Radioactive decay was a key argument against creation, until Austin, Shelling, and Vardiman demolished three key assumptions.

The debate on the merits of the Hydroplate Theory might be getting radioactive now. Or not. CNAV hears of attacks on it that are sixteen years old or older. The concern here is with Tony Reed’s attack on the theory of more than a year ago.

Hydroplate Theory v. unreal science

The breakout of the subcrustal ocean produced formations like these. Based on the Hydroplate Theory.



Yesterday (22 January 2019), after CNAV published the first installment in the Tony Reed v. Creationism series, it received a call from Walter T. Brown. Brown has a simple message for Tony Reed: he challenges him to a written debate.

How creationism didn’t teach someone real science

Blake's Image of Creation and creationism should be a warning to fools who deny God and His creation narrative. Or those who presume to judge God with theological questions about which they know little themselves. Some dire predictions are also possible today. Creation also answers a great many questions about who we are and where we came from.

On October 27, 2017, one Tony Reed published a YouTube video in his long-running series. He calls it “How Creationism taught me real science.” The specific video he uploaded carried the subtitle “Episode 61: Hydroplate Theory.”

Trans-Neptunian objects: just how heavy?

Ultima Thule, farthest (so far) explored member of the Trans-Neptunian Objects class.

The recent (understandable!) interest in the object Ultima Thule (2014-MU69) reminds us of a puzzle about the outer Solar system. Specifically: just how heavy are all the Trans-Neptunian Objects, if you combine them? That question has direct relevance to the most comprehensive creation theory, the Hydroplate Theory of Walter T. Brown. Someone, about a year ago, cited two articles that separately allege that all the Trans-Neptunian Objects is at least a tenth as heavy as the Earth itself. In fact, the authors assert that all the TNOs might be half as heavy as the Earth! So before the origins debate bogs itself down in any more confusion, let’s look—hard—at the sources.

Toward a Restoration of the Creation Narrative

Blake's Image of Creation and creationism should be a warning to fools who deny God and His creation narrative. Or those who presume to judge God with theological questions about which they know little themselves. Some dire predictions are also possible today. Creation also answers a great many questions about who we are and where we came from.

Calamitous consequences of universal significance have resulted from mistaken opinions about the creation narrative in the Book of Genesis. Indeed, the survival of America, the guardian of freedom, depends on whether we can assimilate that narrative to contemporary scientific knowledge of the universe.

Theological riddles for creationists—and their answers

Blake's Image of Creation and creationism should be a warning to fools who deny God and His creation narrative. Or those who presume to judge God with theological questions about which they know little themselves. Some dire predictions are also possible today. Creation also answers a great many questions about who we are and where we came from.

On 24 June 2015, one Tyler Francke posted “Ten theological questions no young-earth creationist can answer.” In his own comment space, several young-earth creationists did answer them. He rejected their answers, per his own arbitrary criteria. Now your editor will answer them. But he will not publish these answers in his comment space. If he wants to follow the ping and register as a user to comment in this comment space, let him. (Subject always to common rules of etiquette.)

Questions and answers

Blake's Image of Creation and creationism should be a warning to fools who deny God and His creation narrative. Or those who presume to judge God with theological questions about which they know little themselves. Some dire predictions are also possible today. Creation also answers a great many questions about who we are and where we came from.

In light of the recent Las Vegas shootings, the same questions are being asked that have been asked before: Why?

Earth is 7000 years old. So?

Earth according to Apollo 17

On or about Monday 18 September 2017, someone published a graphic on Facebook. He titled it “Let’s assume the Earth is 6000 years old.” But he forgot to share it beyond his group. (For that reason, this correspondent will not give an original link.) Another member of that group downloaded the photograph and shared it with this correspondent. No doubt the group member did this to heap scorn on creation. Nevertheless the graphic—a logical flow chart—gives valuable insight into what secularists think about the origins of the universe, the earth, and life. That gives it value beyond—and opposite—the propaganda value the composer hoped to achieve.

Grand Canyon: legal battleground?

The Blue Angel Trail along the Grand Canyon

Two days ago Dr. Andrew A. Snelling, of Answers in Genesis USA, sued the U.S. Interior Department. He accuses them, and more particularly the National Park Service, of abridging his Constitutional rights. Specifically, he sought to study key features of the Grand Canyon. And the Park Service will not let him. The case arises from a plain case of scientific obscurantism. But this time the evolutionists, not any creationists, are obscuring the facts.

Pluto and New Horizons in review

Pluto, in true color

On 27 October 2016, controllers for the New Horizons deep-space mission achieved a milestone. They got back the last data from their spacecraft’s flyby of the dwarf planet Pluto. Alice Bowman, head of the mission team, said the team would first verify the data. They then will order New Horizons to erase its memories. New Horizons must do this ahead of a planned rendezvous with another Kuiper Belt object (2014 MU69). It will make this flyby on or about 1 January 2019).
