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.

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).

Glen Kuban wrong on Walt Brown

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

Glen J. Kuban, almost twenty years ago, took exception to the finding of human and dinosaur tracks, side by side, near the Paluxy River. He has tried several times in those almost twenty years to cast doubt on that claim. Six years ago he found a new target: Walter T. Brown, author of the Hydroplate Theory of the Global Flood. (See In the Beginning: Compelling Evidence for Creation and the Flood, in hardcover and online here.) He published a rebuttal to the theory, and last edited this two days ago (1 September 2015). But his revisions won’t help him. He might have read the book. But he never once examines critically the conventional theories of the origins and history of the earth. And so he falls into a common logical trap. And he never escapes it.

Carbon monoxide on Pluto

Pluto, in true color

The rocket probe New Horizons sent back more pictures from the Pluto system. On Friday (17 July 2015) NASA released some of them. Among them: a frozen lake of carbon monoxide. This lake covers most of the western lobe of Tombaugh Regio (the “heart” on Pluto).

Pluto: accidental creation

Pluto, in true color

In about two and one-half days (14 July 2015, 11:50 UTC), a ship named New Horizons will pass close to the dwarf planet Pluto. It has approached Pluto for six months, after a voyage of nine and a half years. And already it has found, or confirmed, evidence of the true nature, and origin, of Pluto. We must regard Pluto as a recent creation. And an accidental one. A product of the most violent event the earth has ever known, the one event worthy of the name cataclysm.

Volcanism, impacts, and the Global Flood

The K-T boundary. A new theory credits volcanism with that boundary layer. But the explanation might be much simpler.

Recently I had the privilege of conducting a presentation on the dinosaurs to our church’s children’s Sunday school class. I began with a question: what do you think happened to the dinosaurs? The answer was as I expected: an asteroid strike killed them. This theory is under challenge. As many multidisciplinary studies suggest, the Chicxulub impact (commonly believed to be the asteroid strike responsible for the KT Boundary theory) predates the actual mass extinction record for the area. Yet the theory persists in textbooks. So teachers still teach it in classroomsi nationwide. Interestingly, the studies give rise to a resurgence of the Deccan Volcanism hypothesis.

Subcrustal ocean roof found?

Earlier this month, a team of geologists in New Zealand reported making a seismic image of the base of the earth’s crust. They reported their find as the base of a tectonic plate. But a noted creation scientist takes heart from this find for a different reason. This team could have found the roof of a now-drained subcrustal ocean. That same ocean, he says, broke confinement about fifty-three hundred years ago. We know that break-out as the Global Flood.

AiG to sue Kentucky for renege

Answers in Genesis (AiG) announced yesterday they would sue the State of Kentucky in federal court. The Kentucky tourism development board reneged on their earlier offer of tax incentives to Ark Encounter, LLC. Ark Encounter has started to build the first-ever full-sized replica of Noah’s Ark.

Global warming, long term

Earth during the Ice Age

The Blizzard of 2015 introduces a paradox into the global warming debate. It actually shows where global warming comes from. Global warming did not start with industrialization. It started long ago, at the peak of the Ice Age. The causes lie in and under the earth itself. And no act or policy of humanity started it, or can stop it.

Comet 67P explodes convention

Philae touched down where she intended, but bounced away and into deep shadow.

In November of 2014, the European Space Agency achieved a milestone in planetary science. They successfully landed a craft of man on the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. That alone set the world buzzing, as well it might. The landing craft landed nearly in shadow, and had to “hibernate” shortly afterward. But not before sending back a wealth of pictures and other data. In any other context, the scientists involved would have no reservations on their pride. Why then, this time, did those scientists withhold some of their findings for weeks, if not months? Because those findings did something scientists say they appreciate, but don’t. They surprised them. And in surprising them, they vexed them. Because those scientists cannot explain those findings.
