Creation Museum Denounced

My newspaper says, 'Creation Museum denounced by scientific community.' Should this sway Christians away from Creation Science? Or do Christians need mans secular science in the first place?

It is funny how only the part of the community that doesn't believe Gods word is in the Media. The rest of us, and there is alot of us, are never mentioned. If I was satan and I wanted to undermine Gods word, I would create a lie that was so extremely polar opposite to His word. And I would sneak in in over along period of time until iy is the norm. Then when people say that evolution is not true and creation is, then it would look so ridiculous. Satan pulled a good one. Oh by the way Satan, God wins!

"for a degreed physicist with a long career in the sciences, I expected more."

You are self-conflicted. No wonder you can't understand the simplest scientific principles. Matter, energy, forces and all their subtle and complex interactions were CREATED - they did not (they could not) EVOLVE.
---jerry6593 on 11/9/07



Your explanation kinda fits what scientists call physical laws, but for a degreed physicist with a long career in the sciences, I expected more.

Physical laws are human descriptions of how the universe consistently behaves. These laws are derived from observation and tested for validity by experimentation. As such, as experiments become more refined and informed, physical laws are subject to refinement, revision, and possible rebuttal by those who created them---people.
---matthew on 11/8/07



Physical laws do not cause the behavior of the universe, they simply describe it. Physical laws are not discoveries by men on how God operates the universe, they are only descriptive tools used by men to better understand how the universe works.

The Law of Gravity does not cause objects to fall to earth, it simply describes that they do and how they accelerate as they fall.
---matthew on 11/8/07

My point in this is that often, in efforts to debunk evolution and support their own creationist beliefs, some treat physical laws as absolutes, and use them without understanding their meaning, saying that this or that aspect of the theory of evolution is wrong because it violates physical law. You cannot violate something that is not absolute, particularly a theory.

Now on to my next question: Could you please explain the meaning of theory in lay terms we can understand?
---matthew on 11/8/07

OK Matt: "Physical Laws" refers to the measurable, testable way that physical reality operates. Physical reality refers to matter, the stuff you can see and touch. Physical laws, such as Newton's laws of motion, gravity, etc. are a mathematical description of how matter behaves. Was that too deep or should I try again?
---jerry6593 on 11/8/07

what is is argued here (by fundamentalist) is not that God created the earth, or that he may have used evolution, etc, They argue fundamentalism in exclusion of all else, be one a Catholic protestant, etc etc etc. 'All those other groups' may believe 'God did it'- but to the fundamentalist those 'other groups' are as wrong as the atheist.

For President I support Huckabee, when asked about evolution he smartly said "God did it." To a fundamentalist he is in as much error as an atheist.

Here is part of my post to you:

"As a scientist could you start slowly and explain to us what is meant by "Physical Laws" in terms we lay people can understand? Maybe if you start here we can learn from you. Please don't refer us to the Internet. You can explain this, can't you?"

You mention the term, "physical laws", in an earlier post. I just want to know what you think it means.

Derry: "Denounced by [WHO?] the scientific community" at large, including Christians or just scientist opposed to CS? :)

" day you may find that evolution was by God after all." (Alan...10/17) Rediculous! Why would God use a hit & miss way of creating instead of just making things the way He wants?

God alone is God (Creator, Inventor)!

I have no idea what your post about "physical laws" was about and I don't have time to search for it. Repost it if it is that important to you. Or you could just get a dictionary and look it up!

Glad you haven't decided yet. There's still time! Do what I did. Go to a library and see what assumptions are made in radioactive dating techniques. e.g., U-Pb, K-Ar, C14.

Double teaming me with non-science nonsense and calling it science doesn't prove anything but that you have a highly evolved ability to rant using words you don't understand.

Ranting does not lead to knowledge, thinking does. Try it out.

If you don't answer my last post regarding what is meant by "Physical Laws", I will assume that you are a science pretend2bee.

By the way, I haven't really made a declaration toward any scientific or Biblical conclusion, but have only questioned the logical and evidentiary vitality of some statements. So you've done a whole lot of assuming, for a real scientist, on what I think, why I think it, and why you should call me silly names.
---matthew on 11/1/07

jerry: To the untrained psuedo-scientists the lies in evolution are not clearly seen. To those without the Spirit of Truth an honest examination of what they have been fed since childhood is difficult for them to accept as the lies they are. Instead they hang onto a scientific theory that has been proven wrong and honor it as a baseless religion.

TS: These science wannabees don't understand that an entropic closed system means closed to additional information. Adding energy does not add information.

Your example of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is an excellent one. In addition to the energy added, more genetic mutations occurred that day than at any other time in earth's history. It should have been a hotbed of new species creation according to neo-darwinism - but alas, only death and injury!
---jerry6593 on 11/1/07


So according to your understanding of Science, if energy is applied to one locality then life should be created. Therefore we need to look no further than a steel mill to prove that Creation as described in Genesis is correct.

Lack of evidence in one or many instances does not disprove a theory, nor does it prove another theory that is illegitimately defined as its opposite.
---matthew on 10/31/07

You know that your offer is a straw man argument, since such a single experiment as StrongAxe points out, cannot be done to verify Creation, The Big Bang, Evolution etc. As a scientist, you should know this.

As a scientist could you start slowly and explain to us what is meant by "Physical Laws" in terms we lay people can understand? Maybe if you start here we can learn from you. Please don't refer us to the Internet. You can explain this, can't you?
---matthew on 10/31/07

StrongAxe: At Hiroshima and Nagasaki a tremendous ammount of energy was provided an area already filled with the basic elements of life.

Not one thing was created or evolved as a result. Only more CHAOS and disorder resulted.

Its only the Intelligent application of Energy that can create anything living, new and useful.

Matt: Your silliness aside, I do indeed have the credentials to substantiate my training and profession as a scientist. It is clear that you do not. See the post below to Mr. Axe, I extend the offer to you as well to propose ANY scientific experiment whatsoever to establish the veracity of the evolutionary hypothesis. I gave one, now it's your turn. If you have none, perhaps you should stop "re-stating your religious beliefs in science sounding ways."
---jerry6593 on 10/31/07


You are right that entropy (disorder) is increasing GLOBALLY, and the universe is cooling. However, evolution (and other processes by which order increases) only need order to increase LOCALLY. As long as you have a local source of energy (like, say, the Sun) this provides enough oomph that allow order-building processes to happen locally regardless of the chaos happening elsewhere. Entropy can decrease locally as long as it inceases globally - this does NOT violate the laws of physics.
---StrongAxe on 10/31/07

jerry6593: (1)

All that the granite argument proves is that the granite foundation rocks were formed by some other process than "slow melting and cooling". This cannot by itself prove the age of the earth (and if you look at many different rock strata, they all tell different stories of how and when they were created - not a single coincidental value of 6011 years).
---StrongAxe on 10/31/07

jerry6593: (2)

The ScientifiC Method works based on making hypotheses and conducting experiments to test them. What kind of experiment can you perform to see whether or not the earth is young or old?

In any case, since we do not have the technology to test planets and see how long they take to form, we are not able to conduct experiments to see how long it takes. If Evolution is a "theory" for this reason, Creation Science is just a "theory" for exactly the same reason.

To say that evolution is 'atheistic' is silly. Those who claim natural selection condradicts 'scientific laws' are clearly ignorant of such scientif laws.

Jerry, I am not a scientist. If you have some credentials to claim you are a scientist re-stating your religious beliefs in science sounding ways, pointing to faulty claims, uncertain evidence, and untestable theories proves nothing.

Science provides a methodology to seek truth. Its advance is based on discoveries which make false, at least to some degree, those of the past, better discribing what we observe. As a "scientist" you should know this, and your words here reflect that idea.
---matthew on 10/30/07

mathew: Bible is the Word of God. Take it or leave it. Cant have one foot in atheistic evolution and the other on Scripture. Carbon dating is flawed. Fact, 3 different methods yield dates varying by millions of years. Fact, Universe is cooling not warming as needed for Atheo-evolution to work in spite of Physical Laws. Universe is prone toward chaos, that means disorder falling apart. Evolution needs the opposite to come together on its own to achieve more complex state: Violating the Laws of Physics.
---TS on 10/29/07

Mr. Axe: (The strength is questionable.) *"Creationist Science" is a bad idea.* WRONG! Let's apply the scientific method to the origin of our planet. Did earth gradually cool or was it instantly created? The granite foundation rocks prove instantaneous creation by the existence of polonium halos, and when granite is melted, it reforms into rhyolite - not granite. Thus, the scientific method proves creationism - not Darwinian gradualism. Now you propose an experiment to verify evolution.
---jerry6593 on 10/29/07

"Creationist Science" is a bad idea. This has nothing to do with whether it is true - its use of the word "Science" is problematic.

In Science, one makes hypotheses, and then one makes experiments to verify or falsify such hypotheses. Some say evolution is not science because "nobody saw a fish evolve into a bird". Well, nobody saw God creating birds either, since man wasn't around then. If Evolution isn't science, Creationism can't be, for exactly the same reasons.

There is no religion of atheism, and there is no god of evolution. The "laws" of physics were the same then as they are now.

Do you really believe that there is some conspiracy to suppress evidence of God?

And where is the scientific evidence for God? Show me.

By the way, I don't need scientific evidence to believe in God or the salvation of Christ. Nor do I believe the Bible should be read literally and absolutely.

Why are you afraid.

Matt: I'm sure that 7th S. can give you many science examples of creation. I'll add one small, incontrovertable scientific evidence for creation - the discovery by Robert Gentry of the existence of polonium halos (with a 3-minute half-life) in worldwide foundational granites.

These were employee taxes that he kept. Meaning withholding taxes and social security taxes that were rightly the property of his employees. This goes far beyond one not paying his own taxes as a demonstration of moral and religious principle. It is theft.

mathew: Interesting. I warned Hovind that "a little leaven leavens the whole lump" and that his Theology regarding the "Illuminati" and his claims that we do not have to pay taxes would utlimately undermine the parts of his ministry that were on target. "Render unto Ceasar that which is ceasars" was the advice.

Still, this does not take away the truth in the Creation Science he presented.

Kent Hovind and His wife Jo were sentenced to prison for ten years on charges of tax fraud which included failure to pay $845,000 in employee-related taxes out of their operation of Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, Florida.

But he did say some spectacularly entertaining things before he left, such as "If evolution is true, you could not know that it's true because your brain is nothing but chemicals. Think about that."
