Why am I not surprised!

Now that Mueller has debunked the collusion and obstruction lies, alot of talking heads and even lawyers are on air saying we need to move on! The GOP should not investigate the lies and conspiracy and attempted coup! It will look petty. But the house having a dozen or so more investigations going on is okay!

They all want to allow the left to get away with all the lies and violations of the law!

I hope it doesn't happen!

Quote of the Day:

Matt. 24: King James Version

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

Obamas climate advisor- advising!

Did you ever notice?

Trump has been accused of trying to destroy the first amendment freedom of the press, but yet he has spent more time in front of the press in two years than most presidents have in 8!

Even when leaving the White House- he will stop and let the press ask questions for 30 or more minutes! More lies from the demented left!

Gotta love the hypocrat party! (that's democrat for you democrats)

Now that Mueller could not find one criminal wrong doing by Trump- the left has multiple investigations going on about Trump.

Make no mistake about this---THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A POLITICAL PARTY INVESTIGATING SOMEONE IN HOPES OF FINDING A CRIME!!!!!

The only evidence of wrong doing by Trump is material the DNC paid to have made up! The coup d'etat continues.

I hope Trump takes the gloves off and orders Barr to go into full scale investigation mode against Hillary, Holder, Lynch, Rice, Obama and many others into their criminal wrong doings while in office!

I don't know who this Q and X-22 are, but I hope against hope they are correct!

2014 Most Notable News: Evolutionary Icons Toppled


BY BRIAN THOMAS, M.S. * | THURSDAY, JANUARY 22, 2015

The big-picture story of evolution tells that, over millions of years, natural processes produced millions of species from one or a few primitive progenitors. Did this really happen, or did God create separate, distinct "kinds" of creatures about 6,000 years ago like Genesis 1 clearly describes? If evolution's worm-to-pachyderm tale were real, then it should show some kind of iconic evidence. But study results from 2014 totally toppled four of evolution's major icons.

One of evolution's iconic stories tells of a land-walking mammal that gradually morphed into today's seagoing whales. Supposedly, nostrils were somehow repositioned, streamlined bodies took shape, and basically every aspect of whale anatomy was crafted by evolution, except one: Tiny bones near the whale's spine are supposed to represent the raggedy remains of its ancient ancestor's back legs.

Evolutionists published the results of their investigation in the journal Evolution, concluding that the bones are fully functional and necessary to whale reproduction.1 Like all the other integrated whale body features, whale "pelvic" bones show no hint of any evolutionary past.2,3 This tremendously popular icon of whale evolution took a complete nosedive.

Whales weren't the only sea creatures to defy evolution last year. Microscopic extensions in the solar-powered sea-slug gut select and import chloroplasts from partly chewed-up algae cells. The slug then transports those chloroplasts along tiny tubes and places them near its skin so the animal can benefit from photosynthesis. How did the slug obtain the genes required to operate its stolen chloroplasts?

Evolutionists have long explained genetic sequences in the "wrong" creatures—like a bird that uses a mammal gene instead of the expected bird gene—by asserting that ancient ancestors acquired and spliced just those genes when living closely to the unrelated kind.4 Further, evolutionists used solar-powered sea slugs as the iconic example of an animal that had captured plant genes long ago, assuming that the chloroplast-processing genes they found in the slugs were inherited directly from its slug parents.

Last year, researchers finally sequenced DNA from baby slugs that had not yet interacted with algae, and found no plant genes in them.5 Thus, 2014 saw the death of what had been a major utensil in evolution's toolbox. Since these out-of-place genes could not have been inherited from evolutionary ancestors, the best explanation is that God tailored them to fit and function exactly as they do in each organism.

Mutations are supposed to be evolution's engine since they generate variations from which nature then selects. Several different reports devastated this evolutionary icon. One report revealed the near-impossibility of mutations adding information to DNA, given the discovery that DNA encodes two layers of coding in the same space. Changing one letter affects both codes. Another study revealed that cells would begin removing useless gene sequences long before they had a chance to accumulate enough mutations to evolve into a new and useful gene. A third report concluded that the vast majority of mutations produce too tiny a difference for any natural process to see or select, causing slightly harmful mutations to accumulate far faster than any helpful ones could. All these reports were summarized in a review document released in 2014.6 Any one of these results warns of disaster for evolution's supposed mutation engine, but together they completely shut it down.

Evolution's advocates will have to search for some new icons after taking a beating in 2014. They can no longer justify the claim that whale evolution, gene transfer between unrelated animals, or code-building mutations are scientifically valid.

Matt. 6:

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

What my evolutionary colleagues fail to recognize in radio decay dating!

I enjoy the debates with several of the evolutionists here! their rants and insults towards creationists and scientists who believe in a young earth are very humorous!

They leove to tout how radioactive decay constants are still constant and extrelely reliable for dating things.

But as the late Paul Harvery used to say "Now for teh , rest of the story".

It is not an uncommon phenomena when geologists bring in a rock sample to date and can date it by two or more dating methods that they get very discordant ages! Sometimes by as much as 200,000,000 years from the same sample!!!

These are not too well known for this information tends to be squelched, but with a little detective work one can find out that this happens many times.

Same is true with rocks of known ages yielding dates much older by a factor of 4 or 5!

While the standard howl is contamination or outright deception, this has happened at most dating labs which would lead one to conclude that we should not try-to date rocks at all because these labs are so sloppy or geologists who are old agers are so sloppy as to keep their samples from being contaminated!

While still small, there is a growing number of scientists who are re-evaluating radio dating due to the many incongruities found by laboratories across the globe!

Quote of the Day

John 3: King James Version!

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Dinosaurs Buried More Rapidly Than Thought


BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | THURSDAY, OCTOBER 04, 2018

Secular scientists recently determined that most of the dinosaur fossils in the Morrison Formation were buried quicker than commonly thought.1 The Morrison Formation is famous for its compositional consistency and massive extent across the American West, covering nearly 700,000 square miles, and for its rich dinosaur quarries.

The Morrison Formation is remarkable for its dinosaur fossils and has yielded some of the most important, voluminous, and diverse Late Jurassic dinosaur bone beds on Earth, including assemblages of large herbivorous sauropods .1

The conventional view is that the Morrison Formation was deposited over vast periods of time by rivers that slowly meandered back and forth. Secular paleontologists assume that major flooding events of these “rivers” caused the burial of the dinosaurs we find in the various quarries, including the one at Dinosaur National Monument (DNM). These types of flood events are thought to be massive, on the scale of 1000-year Floods or even greater.

In addition, creation scientists have pointed out the common nature of the dinosaur fossils in the many Morrison Formation dinosaur quarries and the lack of any evidence of evolution.2

The rock types in these various quarries are quite variable, but the entombed dinosaur taxa are incredibly similar, even though the Morrison Formation covers a 700-thousand-square-mile area. So uniform are the taxa that frustrated evolutionists agree, “We failed to find any convincing evidence of evolution at the generic level within the Morrison Formation.”3 These massed accumulations, of which DNM is the most famous example, remain a geologic mystery.2

However, the deposition of at least 20 massive Morrison Formation dinosaur quarries over such a vast area by individual river floods alone should have taken vast amounts of time, even by secular time scales.

Kenneth Galli from Boston College and his colleagues from Boston University, New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, and Le Moyne College attempted to resolve how long it took to deposit a major section of the Morrison Formation. They used U-Pb radioisotope techniques to date two ash-rock layers near the top and base of the 320-foot thick Brushy Basin Member, a sub unit within the Morrison Formation that contains roughly two-thirds of all of the dinosaur quarries in the formation.1

The results surprised even these old-Earth secular scientists. They found out that the majority of the Brushy Basin Member was deposited much faster than they thought, all in a time frame of less than one million years. They added:

If this is true, these results have fundamental implications for dinosaur preservation and may explain the limited evolution throughout Brushy Basin time. This is not to say that such a short interval of time cannot be subdivided biostratigraphically, but the taxonomy of Morrison Formation dinosaurs and extent of sampling do not indicate significant evolutionary turnover during this short interval, so there appears to be no basis for a valid biostratigraphic subdivision within the bulk of the Comobluffian vertebrate assemblage.1

Essentially, what they are saying is there is no basis to divide the Brushy Basin Member by any systematic changes in the fossils. They also admit there is little, if any, evidence for evolution in the dinosaurs in the Morrison Formation in general.

We see no evidence of evolution throughout the entire fossil record. Tweet: We see no evidence of evolution throughout the entire fossil record.

We creation scientists wholeheartedly agree. Furthermore, we see no evidence of evolution throughout the entire fossil record. All fossils appear quickly, fully-formed, remain the same, and disappear upwards in the rock record. The Morrison Formation is at the level in the global Flood when the environments of the dinosaurs were being catastrophically inundated. The dinosaurs themselves were swept up by the tsunami-like waves into great masses of bones, like log jams, and buried as concentrated assemblages—these became the quarries we see today.

We also agree with the short time frame for the deposition of the Morrison Formation, except not nearly as long as the secular idea of a million years. The Bible talks about a Flood that covered the Earth just 4,500 years ago. This better explains the extent of the Morrison Formation and the burial of the dinosaurs and the lack of evidence of any evolution.

There were no meandering rivers slowly depositing the Morrison Formation like secular scientists imagine. Only the massive volume of water of the global Flood would have been able to spread these millions of dinosaur bones across nearly 700,000 square miles of the American West in one thin layer a few hundred feet thick. Multiple rivers would never be that consistent. As with other examples of strata found around the world, the Morrison is powerful evidence for the Flood.
