Join us now for the year-end highlights of News to Note 2012. We’ll recap news items covering key issues in the battle for biblical authority, scientific discernment, and intellectual honesty. This year some evolutionists even took a shot at Doctor Who. Their determination to subvert biological and biblical truth by getting the public to think of dinosaurs as feathered beasts on an evolutionary path shows that dinosaurs have become a powerful propaganda tool. Bible-believing creationists must therefore always be prepared to show how biblical history can explain dinosaurs.
What’s wrong with this picture? (Evolutionists critique Doctor Who.)
Evolutionists regularly try to explain how we became human. Because they deny the explanation provided by our Creator in the Bible, they imagine an increasingly complex tree of life, supposing all the traits that make us different from animals are simply random animal add-ons that worked. Bipedality is currently viewed as the key skill that supposedly gave our ape-like ancestors the chance to think on their feet and develop bigger brains. And to cooked food currently goes the credit for fueling those bigger brains. The following two news items explore some of the fallacies in these supposed secrets of humanity’s imaginary ascent up the intellectual ladder.
Are we human because we learned to walk on our own two feet . . . or do we walk upright because we’re human?
Cooking: the key to evolutionary success
Have scientists actually discovered a stellar nursery? Have astronomers ever witnessed the birth of stars anywhere other than on science fiction programs or on computer screens displaying the results of software designed by an evolutionary astronomer to simulate what his mind imagines but has never observed? Or do discoveries like a bluish galaxy 5.7 billion years away actually provide strong evidence for a young universe?
A bright blue galaxy: is it bursting with new stars?
Believers in molecules-to-man evolution insist life can randomly evolve from non-living elements, a process that has never been observed. Despite claims that information-carrying molecules can randomly evolve to replicate themselves and transmit blueprints to new generations of primordial life, no process exists by which such coded information could spontaneously arise. Furthermore, simpler organisms have no demonstrable way to acquire the genetic information to become new, more complex kinds of organisms. This year some evolutionary scientists claimed they witnessed genes acquiring new functions—evolution in action. Yet as you read on, you will see that they have only witnessed old genes performing functions they already had.
Evolutionists claim to have demonstrated the evolution of a new function through gene duplication.
Remember, if you see a news story that might merit some attention, let us know about it! (Note: if the story originates from the Associated Press, Fox News, MSNBC, the New York Times, or another major national media outlet, we will most likely have already heard about it.) And thanks to all of our readers who have submitted great news tips to us. If you didn’t catch last week’s News to Note, why not take a look at it now? See you next week!
