Challenge to YECs? Part 3

Reference: 3. OBSERVATIONS FROM MOLECULAR BIOLOGICAL STUDIES

  • The human genome contains a great deal of what is referred to as non-functional DNA, i.e., DNA that is not translated into proteins. Because these elements are not functional in the usual sense, they are passed from generation to generation without experiencing the selective pressures brought about by natural selection. Humans do not have the ability to synthesize vitamin C because the gene involved in vitamin C synthesis is non-functional in humans. In other animals that can produce vitamin C, this same gene functions properly. In other words, humans have the same gene, but it is “broken” so to speak. Chimpanzees and gorillas also posses this same gene which is broken in the same manner as it is in humans. The odds of this pattern of shared mutations occurring by chance are extremely low. But this is exactly what we would expect to see if humans, chimpanzees, and gorillas were all descended from a common ancestor who first experienced this defective gene. Because this ancestor ate a diet that was adequate in vitamin C, the defect had no overt consequences and could be passed on without harm to succeeding generations.
  • Response: This is easy to answer. When the Creator uses the same template (RNA DNA) for all life. Then all life will be related in some form or fashion. It does not mean we evolved that way.

Side note: The human body has several interdependent organs and systems. What that means is that not one of the interdependent organs or systems can exist by itself. Evolutionists would have us believe that this does not matter. But the reality of this means that almost every system and organ had to evolve at precisely the same time for everything to work. Which means only instant creation works because all would be ready to work at the same time. Evolution cannot achieve this on any level. Evolution does not have perfect timing because that takes math which requires intelligence. So always referring to us and other animals having a common ancestor is at best an assumption.

  • Cytochrome c is a cellular protein involved in a process known as electron transport. Studies have shown that only about a third of the 100 amino acids that make up this protein are essential to its function. Most of the amino acids are “hypervariable” and can be replaced by a large number of functionally equivalent analogs. H.P. Yokey (“Information Theory and Molecular Biology”, New York, Cambridge University Press, 1992) has calculated that there are a minimum of 2.3 x 10^93 possible sequences of amino acids that would provide functionality to cytochrome c. In spite of this incredible number of possible functional sequences, humans and chimpanzees have exactly the same cytochrome c sequence, whereas other organisms have different ones.
  • Response: Again this can be explained in the Creator using the same template (RNA DNA) for all life. The “similar created life” is going to have closely related biological makeup. Also through the evolutionists trying to prove evolution, it is known that less similar life is going to have less related biological makeup. So this works for creation as well. Because the further you get away from similarities in the model you are comparing the others to, the less similar they will be. What I often wonder is why another template for life besides RNA and DNA never evolved? Because as long as the template for life stays always the same it points to a Creator not random chance. Because there is no law or mechanism that would restrict supposed evolution from going away from the original template to evolve a better one. To imply or claim the first template was perfect so another one was not needed is to deny the very foundation of what evolution is all about. Evolution does not get it right the very first time or mutating and evolving would not be needed.
  • Because of the redundancy of the DNA coding system, there are over 10^49 different DNA sequences that could code for the exact same amino acid sequence in cytochrome c. In humans and chimps, the DNA sequence that codes for cytochrome c differs by only a single base unit.
  • Response: Again this is because all life uses the same template (RNA DNA) so any life that closely resembles another with the same template is going to have similarities in biological makeup as well. Which makes us only related through the same template not that we evolved from anything.
  • Transposons are virus-like genetic sequences that randomly insert themselves into host DNA. Except in rare instances, they are passed on from generation to generation by DNA duplication and inheritance. One important transposon is known as the “Alu” element. All mammals contain many of these elements, which constitute about 10% of the human genome. In the human a-globin cluster there are seven Alu elements, and all of them are also present in the chimp in exactly the same seven locations.
  • Response: Same answer as before.
  • Retroviruses are the molecular remains of past viral infections that occur in host DNA. They are produced when viruses insert their own DNA into the DNA of the host’s germ line cells. These randomly inserted sequences are then passed on by inheritance to the host’s descendants. There are at least seven different know instances of common retrogene insertions between chimps and humans.
  • Response: Same answer as before.
  • If humans and chimpanzees are descended from a common ancestor, as evolutionary theory contends, then both species should have the same, or very similar, number of chromosomes. It turns out that humans have 23 chromosomes in their gamete cells and chimpanzees have 24. The evidence strongly indicates that a chromosomal fusion event has occurred in humans in the intervening time since humans and chimpanzees evolved from their common ancestor. G banding is process of analyzing DNA to obtain a detailed “fingerprint” that is characteristic of each chromosome. Chromosome 2 in humans has exactly the G banding pattern that one would expect if two of the chimpanzee chromosomes had fused end-to-end. Every chromosome has two teleomeres (one on each end) and a centromere in the middle. Human chromosome 2 has two extra teleomeres and one extra centromere in precisely the locations that one would expect had they resulted from the fusion of the two chimpanzee chromosomes.
  • Response: There are several things wrong with this conclusion and withholding of information to sell this idea is a deception.

1) The number 2 chromosome in humans is not exactly in the same place on the DNA stand as chimps.
2) It can never be proven that the human chromosome was “ever unfused” in the first place so that during the evolution process it became fused. This whole idea is based on something unprovable being accepted as an absolute truth. Can any evolutionist prove that the number 2 chromosome was ever unfused in humans? If you can with actual evidence and not assumptions I’m all ears.
3) Let’s be honest about what is observable by chromosome changes:
a) Turner’s syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects females. Usually, a female has two X chromosomes; in females with Turner’s syndrome, one of these chromosomes is missing or abnormal. Characteristics of this disorder include short stature and infertility. Other names for Turner’s syndrome include monosomy X, 45X and Ullrich-Turner syndrome.
b) Klinefelter syndrome (or XXY syndrome) is a chromosome disorder that affects males. The affected male has an additional X chromosome, which causes infertility and may cause the development of characteristics such as tall stature and breast development. Treatment may include hormone therapy, cosmetic surgery, speech therapy and counselling.
c) A genetic disorder is caused by an altered set of genes. The four broad groups of genetic disorders are single gene disorders, chromosome abnormalities, mitochondrial disorders and multifactorial disorders. The four main ways of inheriting an altered gene are autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked dominant and X-linked recessive. Around 6,000 known genetic disorders are caused by inheriting an altered gene.
d) Down Syndrome is the result of an extra copy of chromosome 21. People with Down syndrome are 47, 21+. Down syndrome affects 1:700 children and alters the child’s phenotype either moderately or severely.
e) Patau Syndrome is a serious eye, brain, circulatory defects as well as cleft palate. 1:5000 live births. Children rarely live more than a few months.
f) Edwards Syndrome almost every organ system affected 1:10,000 live births. Children with full Trisomy 18 generally do not live more than a few months. etc…
And this list can go on and on. So with all the evidence showing how negative and even deadly chromosome changes are evolutionists want us to believe that the fusion of number 2 Chromosome was a positive step. Zero “observable evidence” of positive chromosome changes means the idea is more or less an assumption that takes faith to believe. Withholding all the negative evidence of chromosome changes in the hopes no one will go looking to find what I just posted is a deception. Real truth needs no deceptions. Also if an evolutionist can name an “observable positive chromosome change” I will have no problem listing it here. But let’s be honest again. If there was it would have been listed with this question as positive support evidence. But that’s not what we observed. This is because positive observable chromosome changes don’t exist.

Also if you use the evolutionist logic about chromosomes and how we are related in evolution, then what would this chart tell us?

Gratuity you mean?

Yeah you need some gratitude so you can go out and take other people's rights away...

Amen. Gratitude because of the grace bestowed upon us in gift of Jesus Christ. ❤❤❤

Yes for the unmerited grace of God! So thankful for my salvation. I can't imagine living a day without Jesus in my life 💯

💯

Gratitude for its own sake is a wonderful thing.

And how exactly does one “know” the supposed “will of God”?

Well said brother Ray! ♥️✝️♥️🙏

Love is a motivator, we don't want sinners to go to hell forever!

Let me rephrase... Gratuity is the high octane fuel that drives us to do the will of Big Foot.

This is why evolution is not science. The evidence never leads anyone to that conclusion, because the truth be told. No one saw anything.

And that is also why only those who believe evolution, are the only ones allowed to interpret the evidence. But conformity is not science either. ~ Issac

**Teaching post for atheists debates**

When a atheist cannot refute the claims made in what you said. They will ignore the claims and make fun of you instead. This is called attacking the messenger because you cannot refute the message. In hopes that your attack on the messenger discredits the message so they don't have to admit they cannot refute it. it's a fallacy to use this but never worry when they do. Because it only proves that what you posted was beyond their intelligent, so to *save face*, they had to mock and ridicule you.

Nice going M.A., giving me this teaching example.

Example: Notice he did not address anything I said. Just the part that stung. Why? He knows I can prove 99% of evolution is not observable, and M.A. does not want to go down that road. But if you do M.A., just let me know and I will just to show that it can be done. Send one of your cronies over here to challenge this and I'll show you. If he turns out to be a hateful troll he'll go away just like everyone else does off your page.

I don't mind banter, that's makes it not boring. But insults and mockery does nothing in proving anything. But BS from a troll will not be tolerated. And yes I know when I'm debating one of you I'm actually debating 10 or more that I cannot see. You guys either use a forum, blog, or even the messenger to look smarter. Been there seen that when you guys thought I was not smart enough to use google and find where I was being discussed, and where the debate was on atheist discussion sites. And how everyone was chiming in so the one person debating me so they could sound smarter and more educated than what they were.

About 50% can hold their own, the rest go look for help. Then the 50% of those who hold their own *at first*, find that as the debate progresses, they need help also. Not all, about half of the 50%.

M.A., it's more than apparent with each counter post on your page that you need help, but you don't seek it because you would rather mock and ridicule than refute anything. Because if you could refute, you would. But you don't because you cannot. That's another reason I laugh at evolution. You only try to look smarter using mockery, instead of actually being smarter using science. Prove me wrong...Refute the points I made in the meme. Or let the mockery stand from your page proving my points. Read the meme again, pull out the points made, then refute them. ~ Issac

Pity the man that puts the servant of GOD above GOD and as God's Not Dead

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 NKJV

God is the God-given Savior! 😉

Isn't belief in the correct God (like Abraham) a belief in Jesus? Or does the Trinity not exist?

Even demons believe and confess that Jesus is the Son of God. There is more to it. Be more than what the demons are. Be Holy! Hear Believe Confess Repent Be Baptized

My son was just approached by someone the other day asking if he knew of God the Mother....oh my.....misguided

Pope Francis is trying to unite all religions as one. A one world religion that doesn't claim Jesus as the only way.

So who should we love more??

Pity the man who doesn't require sufficient evidence

Warning , Rapture is near for those in Jesus Christ. Great tribulation like never before , for those left behind . People who mock God living in homosexuality, abortions, looking at porn and so forth will pay the penalty. Repent and have faith in Jesus Christ by the grace of God and turn from all sin. It is almost finished for the world.I stand for God , America and Trump who supports Israel.

Pity the god who has to resort to threats of eternal torment to beings who do not unquestionably obey itself. Such a god (or "God-given Savior," if that is the preferred euphemism) is cruel and unworthy of respect.

The devil believes in God and shudders! He certainly isn't saved. It's about knowing Jesus and trusting in Him alone as your Savior and repenting of sin. When we do this, we become a new creation in Him.

Amen. Doing a study right now about how prophecy was searchable but the mystery that Paul was sent you Proclaim is unsearchable. Never spoken of before. Sad how many people miss it. They live in that prophecy don't know a thing about the mystery.

It's important to use Jesus or Yeshua, by name. Same with Yahweh. "God" is not a name, it is an ontological term of what something is. There are multiple gods, demons are gods, angels are gods, dismembered human souls that have passed on are gods etc. The word 'g-o-d' comes from the Hebrew word 'elohim' and while this word is used to refer to Yahweh over 1000 times in the Bible, elohim is also used to refer to demons, angels, and dismembered human souls within the biblical text. A god (elohim) is a spirit body, and doesn't necessarily refer to a being that is omnipotent and all powerful. This is why Yahweh is refered to of the Lord of lords, the Elohim of elohim. Most people don't understand this. It's important to know and say the name of the one true Elohim, the one true God, because if you just say 'god'...well your prayer could be going to something you weren't intending it to

Pity the man that worships a narcissist.

So many need understanding and wisdom which God gives freely.

You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! James 2:19

The Bible is a compendium of folk tales and fables recounted orally for generations by primitive tribes from the stone age. This is the Old Testament. The new Testes is hearsay since these gospels were written by the faithful not by objective historians of that particular time. There are no gods! === onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/cogs.12138 Keep the Lies of gods away from children! Forcing religion onto minors is essentially a form of child abuse, which scars their ability to reason and also limits their ability to consider the world in an unbiased manner. ''...exposure to religious ideas has a powerful impact on children's differentiation between reality and fiction, not just for religious stories but also for fantastical stories.''

Ray, I feel you’ve exposed the major problem with all religions. It’s not enough for folks to hold their own beliefs; or to believe in a god; or even believe in the same god as yourself; it’s not enough that they even believe in the major doctrines as yourself. No. They must believe exactly as you do. They must understand the texts as you understand them. Those who agree are the in-group; those who don’t are the out-group, and pity those in this group. The thinly-veiled threat that underlies your post will only hold people long enough until they have the courage to challenge its veracity and morality.

WHY NOT??? God is the SAVIOUR?!

Salvation from what...gtfoh

Amazing “Feats”

This All By Design column by the late CRS board member Dr. Glen Wolfrom appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 23, No. 6, November/December 2018.

Birds are among God’s most fascinating creations, certainly worthy of study — from their annual migrations to nest-building, colorful plumage, communication, and more. One important aspect of these wonderments is the unique and varied design of their feet, used in many ways, including walking, catching prey, preening, and even defense.[1]

The American Coot (Figure 1) has feet that are so odd-looking that Shweta Karikehalli, the author of an online Audubon article,[2] described the bird’s appearance as “wacky.” Each of its oversized toes has two or three greenish-to-yellowish “fleshy lobes” that are connected to its long legs. When in water, these lobes function much like the webbing on ducks’ feet. But on land, walking is assisted by the lobes’ folding out of the way. According to Karikehalli,the coot’s uniquely-designed foot thus makes the bird more adept than most other waterfowl at getting around on both land and water. A few other water birds (some grebes and phalaropes) also have lobed toes, but none have lobes that are as large as those of the coot.

The coot also uses its lobed feet for other purposes.[3] They assist the bird in
becoming airborne — which requires the bird to run across the water’s surface. Also, the feet are used in battles among the male coots. One professor indicated that coots are more prone to hostility than is suggested by their “goofy appearance.”[4]

Here is an example of a unique design for birds’ feet that, unlike those of ducks, render coots capable of efficient transportation, whether on land or water. Unless the lobes appeared suddenly, fully formed and retractable, their evolution in stages would have offered no advantage. We maintain that the “sudden appearance” occurred at creation.

Can I get an AMEN!!?!!!

Comment on Facebook

I listened to a sermon the other day that was against Christmas. It mentioned how similar Santa was to what scripture says about Jesus, the sermon took this as mocking, but I wonder if its paying homage as opposed to mocking. I wonder if it would be beneficial to teach children about the similarities of Santa and Jesus?

AMEN!!

Amen.

So was jesus born in December 25th or nah?

Amen

Amen

Amen!

Amen!

I agree and I also would like a firetruck please

Amen!!!

Amen.

Yes Only the Truth can save them Recently many antichrist events happening around the world. Even the prosecution of true Christians in many countries. Many false prophets claiming Jesus is not Son of God. I am saddened that even the fact is put in front of people and they still deny it. We are living in the end times and return of our Savoir is soon. I truly believe this

Santa was a nice man paying tribute to the real St Nickolas be cause they love children and follows Christ’s love. It worked for us.

It's odd that Santa also spells Satan.......

Amen !!!!!!

TRUE.....

Amen.

Amen

Amen

My nieces sometimes come across these santa cartoons but i tell them he is not real, and the real Superhero and the gift of Christmas is our Jesus.

Yessssss! AMEN!!!

I’m very disappointed that my church (Assembly of God) had Santa & Mrs. Clause for the kids. Instead it would have been better to have a live nativity! I pray they would do this in the future, there’s plenty of people to do it.

Its wrong lie. Lie is a lie. Thou shall not lie.

Amen..lying about santa will only make them believe you lie about Jesus..

Amen

7 Reasons You Can’t Do Everything the Bible Says We cannot obey everything the Bible commands. Of course, this is easier done than said. People (including the type of people with college degrees) claim to do everything the Bible says, but do not. If someone claims to do everything the Bible says, they are either ignorant of its content, or just simply lying. Certainly, we should desire to obey everything that God commands us, but not everything God commands is to us as the church. No matter how much desire a person has, it is simply impossible to obey everything in the Bible. Here are a few reasons why. 1. Where you live Many commands in the scripture concern the nation Israel and specific geography. Unless you live in the Middle East you simply cannot obey commands about land division, going to a city, respecting the land, etc. 2. Your parents It is likely you are not a Jew by birth. It is less likely you are a Levitical Jew. If you were not born a Jew (you were not born to Jewish parents) then there are many commands that are simply not for you to obey being Gentile. The law was given to the Jews. 3. The temple is not built Orthodox Jews who make it their practice to follow the law of Moses do not follow every law today. Why? Many laws require the temple to be built. If the temple is not built, they cannot obey the laws of sacrifices, tithing, and the priesthood. 4. You should do right Your desire to do right by God means that you cannot do everything the Bible says. There are devilish doctrines, lies, and the actions of sinful men recorded in the Bible. It is important to make sure what you are trying to do was actually instructed by God, and not by his enemies. The Bible is often used to justify wrong teachings and behaviors by taking Biblical instructions out of their context. 5. You are human There are things in the Bible that only God could do, that is, God manifest in the flesh. You cannot die on the cross for the sins of the world. You cannot be water baptized without sin. There are other commands God gives angels to do, and you are no angel. While we’re on the topic, the Bible teaches that there is none good, and none righteous. We are all sinners, which means none of us obey everything God instructs by nature. Even if you are saved today, your old man is still present in your flesh fighting against the spirit. 6. God changes his instructions There are many opposite and contradictory commands in the Bible (see Luke 10:4-5 and Luke 22:35-36). If God says pork is forbidden in one place, and in another place says it is allowed, which do you obey? No matter which you choose, you cannot do both, and so cannot do everything the Bible says. 7. Who you are in Christ If you are saved today it is by the preaching of the cross, and you are a member of the church, the body of Christ. The doctrine of the church, the body of Christ, was a mystery throughout the prophets of your Bible until first revealed to the apostle Paul. This mystery church and its instructions can only be found in Paul’s epistles alone. Trying to obey the instructions to God’s nation, while being God’s church is a sure way to confusion. These are only seven reasons. There are many more, but these reasons emphasize the need to rightly divide the Bible to know what God wants us to do. You should read everything in the Bible, and can learn from every passage in the Bible. All scripture is profitable, but not all is for you to obey. You can’t do everything the Bible says, but you should sincerely try to do everything the Bible says to you.

Ray I loved your interview with Janet and found it so encouraging. Since then I’ve watched and learned from your videos which have eased my fear of witnessing to the lost. I appreciate you!
