Predators of the Deep Past

Filed under: Evolution,paleontology,Science — amunhotep @ 10:21 am

Below is an interesting image of a large aquatic creature devouring a flying pterosaur with a small fish in its beak. All preserved in a mud slide and deposited and discovered in the 21st Century.

Creationists, I still haven’t any evidence of a great world flood here in Australia or many other places. These creatures clearly existed 150 Million years ago and met a collective unfortunate end.

Here in Australia none of the Marsupials were known by Noah or any of the Prophets of the Old Testament.

Who Abandoned the Nest

Filed under: Evolution,Science — amunhotep @ 2:49 pm

What an excellent article about a paleontological report in science.

For years it was a problem understanding why this clutch of eggs was abandoned, but now we know. (follow the link on the picture.)

I have always maintained that science will enforce the Theory of Evolution and make the Creationists seem just plain ignorant, and here we are again with evidence and a story about an event over 70m years ago.

Intelligent design debate brews controversy in Texas

Filed under: Uncategorized — amunhotep @ 1:08 pm

Here is a bit more information about the Texas Science Standards Review Panel.  Notice 2 of the anti-evolutionists on the panel are out of state.  Why is it necessary to appoint non local people from a state as big as Texas? 

I would guess the Republican Party members appointed or voted for  have appointed them for a reason, to establish a pro evolution point of view, or at least a voting duality.  I wander how flexible it will be in reality as they are not elected, just appointed.

The anti-science position of the literalist fundamentalist biblicalists group may be voted out as time moves on with the evidence of their Republican politicians being seen a failures in the Economy.

3 evolution critics on advisory panel that will review standards for science courses in Texas schools

Filed under: Creationism,Evolution,Politics,Religion,Science,Texas — amunhotep @ 11:14 am

Well, Texas appears to be following the Republican Party policy document in Texas by opposing Evolution in Science class in the advisory panel by stacking at least three idproponents in it.  The advisory panels meetings should be interesting, evenly matched between creationists and real scientists.

The End of Evolution?| Christianpost.com

Filed under: Uncategorized — amunhotep @ 1:54 pm

On October 9 a prediction of mine happened, well really, an open speculation on my part, yet it happened. The Christian Post is reporting the End of Evolution, a false claim by the Professor Steve Jones at University College London.  R. Albert Mohler, Jr. is the writer of this and they both do not seem to understand the rate of evolution and the various paths.  Not only genetic changes but we should also understand that changes can occur afterward whilst development is going on in uteri.  So claiming evolution has stopped or evolutionists are wrong is false.  Changes can occur in our little grey cells inside our cranium as we developed.  It is all by EVO-DEVO which I know by Sean B. Carrol, an author of “Endless Forms Most Beautiful, The New Science of Evo Devo“, 2005, Professor of Genetics at University of Wisconsin and an Investigator at the Howard Hughes Institute, and Peter Gluckman and Mark Hansen, Mismatch, “Why Our World No Longer Fits Our Bodies“.  Thus we all need to read more about how Evolution of Species works, even our selves.

Good grief, I now have a chance of actually seeing this Ben Stein production that lies and lies and misrepresents and lies and ……

Perhaps I will be able to give a perspective that is unique, I doubt it, but when I get a chance, I will review it, but all the critques have been done, and I can’t add anything new, perhaps I can link it to Religulous when I get a chance to see it, by all accounts constructed the same way.

Mysterious DNA Found to Survive Eons of Evolution – Yahoo! News

Filed under: Creationism,Evolution,Religion,Science — amunhotep @ 2:35 am

I wonder if the Anti-evolution Christian Fundamentalist Crowd will grab this story and use it by misquotes and false attributions etc., to establish the false claim that Evolution doesn’t happen and all of science is wrong.

Maybe they will take Steve Jones talk at a UCL lunch-time talk in London on 7 Oct. to claim that evolution is over and it never happened?

We will have to wait and see I guess.  Perhaps you can understand my skepticism and prognostications as a factor of my experience reading and attending these creationist lectures and articles all around the place on the world wide web and here in Melbourne.

Over 800 Scientists Stand Against Language Critical of Evolution| Christianpost.com

Filed under: Uncategorized — amunhotep @ 11:47 am

Although this article ends with a summary of the Intelligent Design definition of weakness’s and strengths of Evolutionary Theory it appears the scientists themselves are working against the States Republican Party Policy and therefore needs to be watched as the curriculum moves closer to establishment in this large State and therefore a publishers guide as to what to publish in the science text book fro the whole country.

I would say it is about time science fought back publically, what will be next in this saga.

Academics spat over intelligent design | Science | guardian.co.uk

What a debate taken from polar opposites can achieve any consensus I don’t know, but this one goes on and on, this time AC Grayling vs Steve Fuller in The New Humanist.

Now the Guardian has discovered it, unfortunately little is said about the Christians who have no issue with Evolution, or that the parents who brought the Kitzmiller et al. vs. Dover Area High School Board were Christians who went to Church on Sunday and one family taught Science in School during the week.  With what can be described as EVIL letters and threats to the participants, some from the pulpit, it is a disgrace fro anyone calling themselves Christian IMHO.

Why do the Creationists consider themselves representatives of the rest of of us, I don’t know, but they act as if they have never been exposed to what Truth really is or what others believe.  It is sad, because the debates will go on and on with no resolution.  Perhaps Stephen Jay Gould was right when he recommended that such debates should be ignored by Science.  At the same time Science should be better at promoting itself, particularly the Evolution Theory.  Note Theory not Hypothesis, established theory of Biology and various fields of research in Science and Medicine.
