How to debate a evolutionist part two.

Please read parts one (link) before you read this… Making scientific evidence solely support evolution is more of an agenda and strategy which is not science but is conformism. To make the evidence look like it supports evolution only, the evolutionist scientists “leave out” the information that would leave the Theory of Evolution in question. This page will be compiled of such information which will only touch the surface of how far this goes. The reason for this is because this is done so much that to list all of it would be a website in it self. And who would want to read that much anyway? So this page will consists mainly of the major lists that will give the reader an idea of what is going on. Making people believe in evolution is basically a selling game that most some evolutionists are not even aware of. Example: If you go to a used car salesman, what information will he tell you about the car, and what information will he not tell you in order to make the sale? Only the good stuff. What you will see below is that only the good stuff gets told. The bad stuff they will withhold, and in some cases even deny it. You see once you are sold on something, un-selling you on the idea is much harder.

  • The DNA percentage comparison between Man and Chimps is probably the worst of it all. According to who you talk to the difference can be anywhere from 12% to .2%, and seems to change every 6 months going up and down. But percentages are simple math, right? So why leave out the main number in which the percentage was taken from? It’s because it puts evolution into question. The number the percent comes from is 3 billion. Knowing that the number is 3 billion (3,000,000,000) makes that percent look bigger, and us as humans not as close to chimps as was implied. The object of the sale was to not allow you to see that. Ask any evolutionist why the main number is hidden, and all you will get is excuses. How well is it hidden? More than half of the evolutionist I ask don’t know that number. They had the idea sold to them and never checked up on it.
  • The immune system problem. Google the “immune system and evolution” to see if any sites address how evolution works around the immune system. You will not find one, instead what you will find is sites on how the immune system evolved. The reason they won’t address this is because the immune system actually fights change. And knowing that animals immune systems are stronger than ours shows that change would be fought even harder in the lower evolved species. Example: If the immune system were weak enough to allow the changes evolutionists claim happened, we would all die from cancer. Why? Cancer is our own cells rebelling against the system by changing. Cancer cells mutate in our systems all the time. Our immune system kills them making it to where most of us won’t get cancer. So if the immune system was weaker back in time, all offspring would be sickly if not born dead. And not many parents would make it to an age to reproduce. Extinction would be favored more so than survival. This would keep life from evolving into things as complex as humans or any other animals that are complex.
  • Interdependent systems in animals and humans. Every system in the human body is dependent upon another system in order to work. There is no explanation on how each system evolved and worked until the other systems evolved to support them. Nor is there any way for evolutionist to tell us in what order did these systems evolved. Their salesman answer to convince us is that they all evolved at the same time. Knowing that each system has a different complexity (a word they do not like), means that no two systems would require the same number of mutations. Which means no two systems would evolve in the same amount of time to even remotely evolved together as implied. So to claim this is to also claim that evolution has perfect timing. Which boarders on intelligence because how does any evolution processes keep time to when to evolve something? Telling time = intelligence.
  • They will claim that time made the layers in the geologic column. Yet they cannot demonstrate the mechanism that causes time to form and “sort” layers. Yet water, like from a flood, will sort sediments into layers when shaken in a glass every time. And because this process can be tested in a lab, and retested with the same results every time. The claim that water sorted the layers from a flood would be empirical, while time “sorting” the layers is not. Age dating is not an absolute which means other possibilities have to be considered. And because evolutionists refuse to consider anything outside of supporting evolution, the belief becomes a form of conformism. Conformism is the main reason evolution is being sold more than it’s being proven. Conformism is not science.
  • Butterflies can only be created. Putting aside the process of what makes a butterfly, and focus on the results. You would think that in the evolution process that the colors on the wings are just colors. Much like colors on the hairs of other animals and insects. But that is not the case. Butterflies have microscopic scales on their wings that work very much the same way a prism separates sun light into colors. The scales reflect light, but only a certain wavelength of that light. Which means it’s not actual color that gives the butterfly it’s beauty, but how it’s wings refracts light into wavelengths of colors. There is absolutely no pressures from the environment that would make such an ability to evolve, nor is there any intelligence in the evolution process that would cause this.
  • The human eye. It’s not so much the complexity of the eye, but the design. How does the process that allowed it to evolve know:

1) What size it should be and where to put it?
2) That clear fluid is required to fill the eye?
3) What pressure to keep the fluid so the eye will stay inflated and not become damaged (too much pressure stops blood flow, to little and the eye shrinks)?
4) What angle to make the lens that would have to match the size of the eye?
5) How to focus that lens?
6) That the image would have to be upside down and the vision center of the brain would have to correct that?
7) That each eyeball would have to follow the other when the person looks to the left or right, up or down?
8. That a blood vessel needs to be in part of the vision center area to filter out UV rays?
9) That rods and cons are needed to see in the day and night?
10) That vision has to be processed in milliseconds. Example: If it took just 3 seconds to process what you see, then you could not hit a baseball. You could not drive a car because if one pulled out in front of you and you did not see it until 3 seconds later. You already hit it.
etc…

  • The human heart… The human is not only by design, but because it is essential for life it has to be in working order when it supposedly evolved. No chance for trial and error until it evolves correctly. Here is a list of a few things that has to be exactly right or the life dies.

1) The muscle of the heart has to be a type that never grows tired. So it’s different from every other muscle in the body. If this type of muscle was not used in the supposed first evolution attempt offspring would die in less than 24 hour. And no genes of what was needed next would be passed on to correct this.
2) The heart valves have to be in place to keep blood flowing in one direction.
3) The heart valves have to be made just so, so that the opening and closing section of it does not damage blood cells. If not this will cause the body to send blood clots out which are deadly because they cause everything from strokes to organ damage by cutting off blood flow. So the heart valve has to be right the first time, or death will occur.
4) The heart rhythm has to be just right as well. Wrong rhythm and the heart will not pump enough blood for the life to survive. Wrong rhythms can also cause extreme high or low blood pressure which is deadly as well.
5) The speed has to be variable that responds to the body’s need for oxygen.
6) In order for the tireless muscle to work for the heart, a balance is needed in the body of: Potassium, calcium, magnesium, CoQ10 enzyme, and adequate blood supply for oxygen. If any one of these things are off, irregular heart beat and heart damage can occur and death can be the result.
etc…

  • The origins of life. Abiogenesis is implied to have proven that life was created from dead matter. No life has ever been created from dead matter. This one problem in itself disproves evolution because it disproves that life arose naturally then evolved. If life cannot happen naturally, then a Godless evolution cannot happen either. Why is that important? Evolution is solely based on non-intelligent Godless creation of life from dead matter. So when life cannot be proven to have arisen any other way than a God filled creation, then by default evolution is proven wrong.
  • The blood brain barrier (BBB). The BBB filters out almost all harmful chemicals that can do damage to the brain. Without the BBB the brain could not develop and would be damage. Intelligence for survival would be impossible with a damaged brain therefore life would die. So the BBB would have to be fully functional the first time or life dies.
  • The pancreas. The pancreas puts out insulin which is very important for survival. But, to much and life dies, to little and life dies. Anyone with diabetes knows this very well because they have to deal with regulating what their pancreas cannot.

There are also support mechanism of evolution that have problems. Such as what they claim takes millions of years yet in recent years has been proven wrong. More of the selling of time that evolution requires in order not to put evolution into question. More of what evolutionist won’t tell you so that you will believe.

  • Oil takes millions of years to form, or does it?
  • Coal takes millions of years to form, or does it?
  • Blood, tissue and DNA will not last millions of years, or did a million years pass?

More to come….

The root of the evil of abortion is the love of money. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

And sin. Abortion has been practiced for thousands of years and we need to protect human life.

good point

it's selfishness , todays ppl worship and adore themselves to a degree that they would fo any sin

Selfishness.

A Bill is being introduced in Ohio in regard to ectopic pregnancy, doctors are told that they must re- implant the fetus ( a medical impossibility) or face imprisonment or death.

Selfishness and a western mentality regarding anything sacred.

Another old white man who wants to take women's rights away... Very original 🤦‍♂️

This Holocaust needs to end. These babies need a voice. Their lives matter!

The root of ALL evil is the love (worship) of self!

Or perhaps lack of money ?

That is, the lust of the flesh, haters of Good.

Yes. Boiled down it looks like this: 1. People don't love God with all their hearts. 2. People don't love others like they love themselves. You can call it love of money or selfishness if you want.

Abortion may be mostly about $ at this point but it starts with the carelessness and self gratification selfishness on the participants. Which indicates a lack of understanding about what God intended.

Yes it is

This is so true, all planned parenthood is, is a money laundering scheme for the dems.

People it’s not the love of money by the individuals themselves. The abortion industry is the basis of many other industries such as the vaccine industry where they are forcing chemicals upon us that alter our dna and our minds, the food industry to enhance the flavor of our foods, the medical industry (yes I say industry cause they are all about money too) used for research, etc. Its the governments love of money that keeps child sacrifice legal and in business. It’s all about control.

The world rips babies out of the womb and throws them in the trash. The church ripped books out of the Bible and threw them in the trash. We rebuke the world for their sin while we continue in ours.

And the idolatry of Self.

True! Just as the medical industry makes no money from healthy people, neither can they when babies live. Wait. Are they being short sighted?

Truth

My heart breaks for those precious souls. It's money and selfishness.

Truth

That comment is ridiculous

Let’s not arm any pro abortion people. Your follow is to large to be talking all this twistable nonsense

A new creation never before seen on Earth

2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version (NKJV) 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Amen

Ray, come on. Are you not really one of these "bots" that are just letting out a string of words that sounds sort of okay?

thank you Lord that I am Born again.

Been born again for seven years. Thank you, Jesus

Amen!

If you commit the same sins after the new birth that you did prior, does that mean you are a false convert??

Christians: “You reject our God because you want keep sinning!!!!” Also Christians: “I still sin. No one is perfect”. And you wonder why we don’t take you seriously.🤷🏼‍♂️

I'm being attacked by Satan but greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I have the strength of Jesus Christ! to withstand the enemy's onslaught.

I’m not sure I’ve had this stuff happen but I’ve probably had.

Im researching my family tree....ever time i find a new surname i get friend suggestions on facebook of people with those name

It's because most people leave their data or wifi on constantly, which means your apps are running, well you gave the apps permission to access your camera, calander ect. I only turn my data on if i go on fakebook or need to google something. The sheep aren't thinking anymore🐑 in the name of convience they let wifi/data run constantly...NOT GOOD! Plus for some STUPID reason most everyone i know uses fakebook messenger to communicate, instead of the regular phone features to text/talk which are a bit more private. Use your heads people it's the apps, why do ypu think they want you to have an app for everything??? Only app i have is walmart and fakebook and the standard ones they make you have, like GOOGLE to be able to use your computer phone you have to have a google account...use your phone as a phone and keep your life private as you can, turn on wifi/data only when needed...why make it easier for them? Use your computer for all the rest. Think of how open people leave themselves gps for driving? No i google the directions and write them down before i go, not to mention the drain on your battery having your location, bluetooth and data on😕 one last thing to help open up some eyes...car insurance will give you a safe driver discount if you leave your data, location, and crap on so they can see your doing the speed limit and stuff to know your a safe driver😉 BAAAAH🐑🐑🐑

'tis the plan, don't you know?

"1984" must be a how to book for the ruling elite .

It’s creepy. No Alexa in our house and cell phones stay out of our bedroom. They can read the words on a book with a satellite, you know they’re watching. Just don’t know who or what they want. (diane)

How do they know?

No Alexia in our home. Commuters shut off.

Sometimes I've been thinking about stuff say a song, movie etc something I've forgotten and couldn't remember. Next day low and behold there it is in suggestions......creepy WIFI off!!

Oh it's scarier, sometimes I get ads of what I'm doing like brushing my teeth and new tooth brush ad comes up.😮

Who are these two people?

Bethany Cousins

all the time...creepy

Yes! I don’t think it’s funny though.

100%. The wife and I were talking about something a couple weeks ago that I’ve never even heard of, never googled it, all of a sudden the next day I see a ton of adds for it on my phone.

I promise... I can THINK of something and ads will pop up 😂😱😂😱😂

yeah they’re definitely listening through devices.

Google reads minds. Yep, there is a conspiracy here. Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates are in on it. Maybe the politicians too! Lol

Green Iguana

The following All By Design column by Dr. Jonathan O’Quinn appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 22, No. 1, January/February 2017.

Throughout nature we can see everywhere that plants and animals seem to be perfectly designed for the habitats in which they live. In May of 2011, while my wife and I were visiting the U.S. Virgin Islands, I snapped this picture of a green iguana sunning itself one morning. These large lizards climb up into the tops of the native palm trees each morning to warm themselves before climbing back down to start the day’s search for food.

It was only several years later, while studying this photograph, that I realized how perfectly designed these lizards are for their habitat. Note how the pale, greenish-brown body color nearly matches the color of the trunk and branches of the tree. Notice, too, how the dorsal frills on the neck and back resemble the “spikey” appearance of the palm fronds. Finally, see how the darker bands of color on the tail match the banding patterns of darker leaves against the lighter sky.

In fact, when iguanas are at rest, they are extremely difficult to see. Now ask yourself: how could random processes, that are claimed to be responsible for evolution, have enabled the appearance of these particular physical characteristics which would assist the lizards in avoiding predators? Even if the iguanas themselves were in some way cognizant of such a need, how could chance have produced these features? Oh, okay—they couldn’t. Well, there goes the theory of evolution!

The Fake News as well as Fake Science of evolution is mentioned as part of the plan of the Illuminati to undermine the warnings in the Bible. They are behind the conspiracy to bring in the Antichrist's kingdom the Marxist New World Order which is referred to in their plan called the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (Scion).

Yes. It destroys everything. Marriage. Relationship. And a covenant with your spouse and the Father! If I hate one and only one thing on this earth, this is it.

Should be legal anywhere. WWJD

Putting aside the Spiritual aspect of the corrosion that pornography causes of the soul. Pornography dissolves the positive side of Love, compassion and humanity and turns the objects of lust into a twisted fantasy, denigrating them to mere objects stripping them of value erasing the facts that they are flesh and blood with hopes and dreams.

It should be banned. I don’t even think they should only allow adults on there but ban it all together. It does just as much harm as drugs. Governments ban porn in many countries and the west should follow.

In a perfect world it should be illegal. In the real world it will creep in wherever it is desired. (diane)

Clearly it's not properly regulated when legal. Ban it, narrow down the real threats

I highly recommend everyone watch The Kinsey Syndrome Documentary on YouTube. VERY eye opening

Drugs are illegal and how is that working? Good Fight Ministries you guys do amazing works dealing with pop culture and exposing darkness. I thank you for your major influence in my life, new walk. Making it illegal will only do more harm and make it more underground. Keeping our kids away from it and continuing to work on the changing the hearts of people close to us with prayer and scripture is what we do. Young men and women need to be able to approach people they trust and talk about things. The devils power is in secrets, lies and isolation. It's a multi billion dollar industry. There is no worldly solution to rescue and repair all the lives destroyed by it. Lean hard in your faith and saviour, plant seeds, and be the example and pray. Good fight tough question. Thank you for all that you do!

Sick woman.

Outlawing it will result in an explosion of interest in it. You can't stop something by banning it. For example - most mass shootings occur in gun free zones. Prohibition saw an explosion of crime of all kinds, including alcohol consumption. Jesus never said, "Force them to accept righteousness." HE has Paul tell us we are to persuade people. You have no right to enforce your beliefs on anyone else. No matter how good they may be.

No, it shouldn’t be legal. I pray that their computer servers burn! I pray that all of their electronic equipment burns to the ground!

I personally don't think it should be illegal. That's not to say it's not immoral. It is. However, if Christians ban everything that they think is immoral, we'd be living like the Puritans in pseudo theocracy in which we depend on fallible men to be the judge, jurors, and interpreters of hundreds of God's laws. I mean, if we look at a woman with lust, we have committed adultery. Therefore, Instagram should be banned. Any social media that allows pictures to be posted for that matter. Maybe pictures of attractive people should be banned. If you go down this slippery slope, our society might end up like the Muslims, requiring women to be completely covered. As a Christian, I also believe that we have the freedom to practice our religion the way each of us best interprets it. Once again, I'm not saying that all interpretations are valid. However, there was a time when religious authority was centralized and that wasn't a utopia either. I say, if consenting adults want to make porn, and another adult freely chooses to watch it, that should be legal. They're only hurting themselves. Now, if they display it to others in public, like children, then they are violating someone else's negative rights. Then that should be illegal and I believe it already is. If we were to ban everything that offends us as Christians we'd be just like the extreme leftists or communists that demand "safe spaces" whenever a controversial word is uttered. Say goodbye to comedy, art, and romance. And no, I'm not saying that porn is art or romance. But it wasn't that long ago that it was considered to be sexy for women to show their ankles with a poodle skirt. It's very subjective. I don't want the government to make those decisions for us. We as Christians should be strong enough to make them ourselves or with the help of the church if we're struggling.

No, pornography should be illegal in The United States, it is the root cause of violence, especially toward women, and complete lack of morals, causing many different crimes.

If it was illegal, what should be the consequence?

Ever heard of the 1st amendment? it already is legal.

No. there is alot of human trafficking involved in pornography and it should be illegal. My opinion is that it should be illegal.

"A wise king scatters the wicked, and brings the threshing wheel over them." Proverbs 20:26

Praying for eyes to be open

It's already legal. They sell it in stores!!! ;0)

Porn "stars" are slaves not only to sin, but to the pimps filming and abusing them.

Pornography destroys marriages. And now you just go on a computer not go to 7 eleven and ask for it and be embarrassed

Legal? USA is a big Whore house. It produces more porn movies than any other country. Porn is everywhere: movies, soaps, advertising, billboards, flyers, sports, schools, jails, etc. It is either "staying in the jungle or back to God"!

Yes it should be illegal.. it at least sends a message in morality... but the spirit of the living God in the heart of man makes it undesirable!!!

Plants in Motion

The following Math Matters column by CRS president Dr. Don DeYoung appeared in Creation Matters Vol. 21, No. 6, November/December 2019.

A dull, boring event is sometimes likened to watching grass grow. Many plants, however, do in fact display remarkable activity. For example, the tropical touch-me-not plant (Mimosa pudica) folds and droops its compound leaves within seconds of a touch. And underwater bladderworts (genus Ultricularia) close a tissue trapdoor on mosquito lava in just milliseconds.

In spring 2018, I monitored the growth of a Midwest clementis flower vine. During 12 hours of daylight the vines grew an average of 3.5 cm in length, which is nearly three millimeters per hour. Assuming a plant cell size of 50 microns, and a vine diameter of two millimeters, each clementis vine builds complex cells at the rate of twelve cells per second. With more than a trillion atoms in each cell, there is frenzied activity in plant growth on the nano scale.

The Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) capture mechanism is also a standout for plant motion. Its leaves capture prey in a process called snap-buckling, similar to the “rubber popper” toys that launch themselves into the air. The flytrap leaves close by flexing themselves quickly from a convex shape to concave in a fraction of a second.

The current plant speed record may be held by the dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium americanum). This plant explosively releases seeds through the air on a microsecond timescale.

Those of us who mow lawns can appreciate the slow growth of grass. However, the botanical world has a host of plants that rapidly catapult, kick, jump, and snap.

The Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) capture mechanism is also a standout for plant motion. Its leaves capture prey in a process called snap-buckling, similar to the “rubber popper” toys that launch themselves into the air. The flytrap leaves close by flexing themselves quickly from a convex shape to concave in a fraction of a second. 

The current plant speed record may be held by the dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium americanum). This plant explosively releases seeds through the air on a microsecond timescale. 

Those of us who mow lawns can appreciate the slow growth of grass. However, the botanical world has a host of plants that rapidly catapult, kick, jump, and snap.
