The Pseudoscience of … science!
The world is fascinating, science, not so much. Science as we know it has become a giant human fraud in many areas of study. Cosmology invokes inflaton particles that are able to expand the big bang with perfect uniformity at hundreds of times the speed of light and then vanish away without a trace. Dark […]Read the rest
Ways to read the rocks.
Embedded in the sedimentary rock layers (GEOLOGY; of sedimentary rock that has formed from sediment deposited by water) are the remains of once-living things. Most are just mineralized bones but many are the actual bones of once living things. Some soft tissues which have mineralized can be found in extremely rare instances and many soft-bodied animals left their […]Read the rest
Unfossilized bones, millions of years old?
It has been estimated that over the millennia, all the people that have ever lived have numbered 108 billion persons. This assumes human beings began 50,000 years ago starting at 2 people. That’s a lot of people. That is a lot of bones. I don’t have estimates for the number of dogs and cats, horses […]Read the rest

The walking dead!
Some spectacular fossils are being found in rock layers thought to be 410 million years old. Arachnids are a group of animals possessing multiple legs, an exoskeleton, and include spiders, ticks, and scorpions. Chert sediment from the Devonian period preserves minute details of many of the organisms it captures. Silica-laden water floods an ecosystem and virtually freezes […]Read the rest
Oxygen makes evolution work?
Darwin had great doubts about the theory of evolution. He said as much, pointing to several obvious realities that he could not address by the slow, methodical, random descent with modification program that evolution was supposed to follow. The lack of intermediate life forms that should link all living things in a continuous spectrum of […]Read the rest
The daddylongleg, the failure of evolution and Shakespeare.
Familiar with the “DaddyLongLeg”? Also known as harvestmen these little bugs are not insects but arachnids like the spiders, mites, ticks, and scorpions. The harvestmen are not true spiders. They have no venomous glands and their biting apparatus is not like those of the spider; these little guys can cut and swallow chunks of food. […]Read the rest
Featured picture above: A Whollysaurs rex! Reptiles in northern or southern latitudes undergo hibernation as seasons change and temperatures drop. The painted turtle can endure some of the harshest winter conditions and thrives as far north as southern Manitoba. Tortoises, snakes, and other lizards are not cold hardy creatures. The species richness for lizards and […]Read the rest
Transitional life forms!
A few years ago I engaged in an online – email discussion with a fellow that was sinking deeper into insanity and unhappiness. It soon took a turn into a debate forum; not of my doing. I like to discuss and I will debate but when a discussion turns to a defensive attempt at being […]Read the rest
EVOLUTIONARY CLAIMS ABOUND
Evolutionary claims abound. As though scientists had just returned from a trip to the past after watching events unfold in real time, news blurbs report just so stories with a level of detail that current field observers would miss. This time the fossil discovery of sharks and shark eggs found up river from an ancient […]Read the rest
