2 Peter 3-7: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Science has been getting a bad rap lately…and deservedly so. The Anthropic Global Warming hoax is unraveling and too many unscrupulous scientists at the center of this politically motivated redistributionist scheme are now being excoriated for whoring themselves out to Marxist swindlers. Yet they are hardly the first, nor are they the most guilty of mis-leading the public through false science. They are merely building their fraudulent theories on the foundations previously laid by others.
The Theory of Evolution itself has been losing credibility almost since the day it was first proposed. The theory’s prevailing popularity is largely the result of political necessity rather than any accumulated scientific evidence. Evolution is, of course, the centerpiece of the collectivist’s “progressive” agenda. Without a basic belief in an ongoing process of evolutionary progress there is not much to suggest a need for implementing social policies that promote an ongoing social evolution.
The founding fathers of our country were most definitely not evolutionists! This is not only because the foundation of our country predates Darwin’s theory by a hundred years, but also because they viewed man as a “created” being. In their infinite wisdom they did not see any evidence that man had acquired any new abilities or capabilities in his entire history. No, the history of man is full of the same stories played over and over. Oh sure, you have had technological innovation, but how little has man himself changed. We are vulnerable to the same weaknesses and temptations as our fathers and their fathers before them. With this knowledge, the founders of our country designed our constitution accordingly:
“In questions of power, let us hear no more of trust in men, but rather bind them down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution.” -Thomas Jefferson
Those are not the words of a “progressive,” nor are they the words of someone who has faith in the inherent goodness of men. This is why the collectivists that comprise today’s resurgent “progressive” movement find the constitution to be such an impediment to their desired progress. It was intentionally designed to restrict one man’s inevitable desire to dominate and rule over another man. They foresaw the schemes and shenanigans of future Marxists, socialists and other assorted collectivists and placed barriers on the path to their alleged “progress” because they knew what we all should know:
ECCLESIASTES 1:9: The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
In other words, we have been here before and what they call progress is actually nothing new at all. To our friends on the collectivist side of politics, social evolution is a natural and expected outgrowth of geological and biological evolution. If both the species, and the environment of that species, can be said to be evolving then it would be natural to assume that the society of that species in that environment would be evolving as well. Therefore they justify their reformist progressive policies much the same way as a geneticist justifies the biological engineering of plants and animals to preserve the strengths and minimize the weaknesses of their particular species, and then apply that logic to society as a whole. Alas, social engineering becomes a moral imperative of the scientifically based progressive religion of evolution with social justice being the “great commission” of its adherents.
Fortunately, even a godless philosophy must have some sort of foundation to build its’ universal truths upon, and the god of the progressives is science. The science behind evolution must be true or else the entire philosophy will collapse. Just as the collapse of the Anthropic Global Warming hoax is being under-reported in the American press, so too is another story…one that has the power to bring down the entire evolutionist scheme to mis-lead and mis-educate entire populations. The enemy of evolution turns out to be what scientists had always thought was its’ best evidence…the dinosaurs.
A recent episode of CBS’s 60 Minutes finally broke news that has been circulating throughout the scientific community for years. Fresh organic tissues continue to be found in fossils alleged to be millions of years old! These un-mineralized, still-soft tissues come from animals and plants that were preserved by some catastrophic event. Each specimen looks considerably younger than its’ alleged age and a direct conclusion must be made that the rock that encased it is likewise thousands, and not millions, of years old. The fresher the meat, and yes there is meat, the more ridiculous the evolutionist claims that either the creatures or the rocks can date to pre-human history.
“The lab filled with murmurs of amazement, for I had focused on something inside the vessels that none of us had ever noticed before: tiny round objects, translucent red with a dark center. Then a colleague took one look at them and shouted, ‘You’ve got red blood cells. You’ve got red blood cells!’. It was exactly like looking at a slice of modern bone. But, of course, I couldn’t believe it. I said to the lab technician: ‘The bones, after all, are 65 million years old. How could blood cells survive that long?’ – (Schweitzer and Staedter, 1997, p. 55)
This account was given by Mary Schweitzer, a PhD student at Montana State University at the time. A well preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton had been found and brought to the university in 1990. During the analysis of the fossilized remains it was observed that some portions of the bones had not mineralized but were still, intact, original bone. Further examination within the vascular system of this bone revealed…red blood cells! Of course, this is just not possible.
In 2002 Schweitzer made an even more astounding discovery. She and her team had to divide a very large Tyrannosaurus Rex thigh bone in order to transport it. When the bone was opened flexible and elastic soft tissue meat was found inside. This is astounding because this bone is alleged to be 68 million years old!
Microscopic examination revealed blood vessels with intact red blood cells and other types of cells such as osteocytes – which are bone forming cells. These blood vessels were soft, translucent and flexible. To demonstrate Schweitzer placed two microscope generated photographs side by side and asked:
“One of these cells is 65 million years old and one is about nine months old. Can anyone tell me which is which?”
“I mean can you imagine pulling a bone out of the ground after 68 million years and then getting intact protein sequences? That’s just mind boggling how much preservation there is in these bones.” -John Asara, Beth Israel Deconess Medical Center
It is not some arbitrary rule of science that dictates that flesh rots quickly. It is extremely well established by observation and easily repeatable experiments such as those that can measure the protein decay that occurs in only two days. The science being challenged by these discoveries goes straight to the heart of deep-time evolutionary theory!
One of the earliest published reports concerning DNA extracted from ancient materials (over one million years old) involves magnolia leaves found in lake bottom sediments of the alleged Miocene age which is dated 17 to 20 million years old. The find proved to be interesting because the magnolia leaves were found in water-logged clay deposits. (Which is a pseudo-scientific way of saying they were still wet!) Scientists agree that DNA disintegrates very rapidly when in contact with water. In fact, complete disintegration occurs in less than 5000 years. Yet, repeatedly, scientists were able to extract authentic plant cpDNA in the 700 to 1500 bp size range.
“The clay was wet, however, and one wonders how DNA could have survived the damaging influence of water for so long.” – Prof. Dr. Svante Pääbo Director, Department of Genetics Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Perhaps the magnolia leaves simply are not 17 million years old. Likewise, the dinosaurs are not 65 million years old. The DNA evidence is much more consistent with a recent catastrophic burial. Time destroys soft tissue as well as DNA and proteins relatively quickly. Current scientific observations suggest that biological proteins cannot remain intact more than a few tens of thousands of years. 100,000 years would be the maximum possible outside limit of protein decay. The fact that these proteins have been found, intact, in bones alleged to be older than 65 million years is inconsistent with the conclusion. Either the science regarding DNA and tissue deterioration is flawed or, more likely, the age of the bones and the plants has been hugely miscalculated. This is what happens when, as with the Global Warming hoax, you begin your research with a desired conclusion only to have the evidence prove inconvenient and unable to sustain that conclusion.
Perhaps the magnolia leaves were packed wet into that clay, say…4000 years ago. Lets see, what kind of water borne catastrophe could possibly be attributed to that time frame? Ahh yes, Mr. Noah and his world consuming flood. How can scientists continue to insist that something is 17 million years old when there is no possible way for its DNA to survive 5000 years? Worse, how can paleontologists continue to tell us that dinosaurs are 65 million years old when we have organic DNA that suggests they are only thousands of years old? In fact, the evidence now suggests that humans and dinosaurs must have co-existed together!
In order for the theory of evolution to be true, the DNA in both these plants and dinosaurs must have been preserved in some way unfathomable by science. For organic dinosaur tissue to be preserved for this length of time would require…a miracle! Suddenly scientists holding onto the theory of evolution, like their Anthropic Global Warming counterparts, are in need of divine intervention and miracles to preserve their fraudulent claims.
You won’t be seeing this get the attention it deserves simply because it interferes with the political motivations of progressives and their benefactors. When the magnitude of this fraudulent science is revealed it will destroy every last bit of credibility the scientific community has ever had. It is a shame, but it is consistent with human history. Science, like religion, is often merely a tool used by the powerful to corrupt and control society. Jefferson and the other founding fathers of our country were right. Man is not an evolving creature. He is best kept locked in his constitutional cage.
