of our Good Shepherd Creator Christ

Ask the animals,
and they will teach you,
.. Which of all these
does not know
that the LORD's hand
has done this?
In His hand is the
soul (nephesh)
of every creature and the breath of all mankind"
Job 12:7-9

Good Shepherd
Creator: Christ
Human Trafficking & Slavery
Don't Just Happen
(Jesus said in Mark 7:21-23)

Would a "good" God design
"survival of the fittest"
as His WAY?
(Isaiah 65:25)

Rights - Any discussion about human rights (slavery, oppression) or animal rights (cruelty, abuse) must first address our Creator's rights. He has the right to command how we treat both His people and His animals.

Mistakes - Man's self-serving, misguided, mischaracterizations of God have historically led to personal and cultural conflict, corruption, and collapse.

Hope - Discovering the WHO?, the WHY?, and the "WAY"? of origins is the foundation for true transformation.

at all the acts of oppression
which were being done
under the sun.
And behold I saw
the tears
of the oppressed
and that they had
no one to comfort them;
and on the side of their
oppressors was power,
but they had
no one to comfort them."

COSMOLOGY (Origin of the Universe)?

EVOLUTIONIST - Cho, Adrian, A singular conundrum: How odd is our universe? Science Journal 317:1848–1850, 2007.“‘Cosmology may look like a science, but it isn’t a science,’ says James Gunn of Princeton University, co-founder of the Sloan survey. ‘A basic tenet of science is that you can do repeatable experiments, and you can’t do that in cosmology.’” 

GEOLOGY: Earth, Catastrophic Events, Flood

EVOLUTIONIST - Dr. Derek Ager:
“I should, perhaps, say something about the title of this book. Just as politicians rewrite human history, so geologists rewrite earth history. For a century and a half the geological world has been dominated, one might even say brain-washed, by the gradualistic uniformitarianism of Charles Lyell. Any suggestion of “catastrophic” events has been rejected as old-fashioned, unscientific and even laughable. . . .”
Derek Ager, The New Catastrophism (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993), p. xi.
“Perhaps I am becoming a cynic in my old age, but I cannot help thinking that people find things that they expect to find. As Sir Edward Bailey (1953) said, “to find a thing you have to believe it to be possible”.
Derek Ager, The New Catastrophism (Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. Press, 1993), pp. 190-91.

BIOGENESIS (Origin of Life?):

EVOLUTIONIST - Hubert P. Yockey, 1992 (a non-creationist). Information Theory and Molecular Biology, Cambridge University Press, UK, p. 284.
“The belief that life on earth arose spontaneously from non-living matter, is simply a matter of faith in strict reductionism and is based entirely on ideology.”

HUMAN EVOLUTION FROM APE TO MAN

EVOLUTIONIST - Bernard Wood (prof. of human origins, George Washington Univ.), “Who are we?” New Scientist, 2366 (26 Oct. 2002), p. 44.“There is a popular image of human evolution that you’ll find all over the place … On the left of the picture there’s an ape … On the right, a man … Between the two is a succession of figures that become ever more like humans … Our progress from ape to human looks so smooth, so tidy. It’s such a beguiling image that even the experts are loath to let it go. But it is an illusion.""

SCIENCE: (Evidence or Consensus)?

INTELLIGENT DESIGN THEORIST, Dr. Norman Nevin PhD Professor Emeritus  Medical Genetics, Queen's Universityhttp://shouldchristiansembraceevolution.com/
No coherent, cohesive theology has yet been offered that would allow Christians to embrace evolution with integrity. Science has uncovered a great deal of empirical evidence that is challenging the Darwinian paradigm. Why then do so many want to embrace it? It appears that the only possible reason is the fear of appearing intellectually inferior to the academic consensus.”  p. 220

EVOLUTIONIST - Dr. Michael Crichton (1942–2008): Educated at Harvard University A.B. (summa cum laude) 1964 (Phi Beta Kappa). Henry Russell Shaw Travelling Fellow, 1964–65. Visiting Lecturer in Anthropology at Cambridge University, England, 1965. Graduated Harvard Medical School, M.D. 1969; post-doctoral fellow at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences, La Jolla, California 1969–1970. Visiting Writer, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988. The books he has authored have sold over 200 million copies. Source: michaelcrichton.com/aboutmichaelcrichton-biography.html.
“I want to pause here and talk about this notion of consensus, and the rise of what has been called consensus science. I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.
“Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.
“There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”

* NEW Genetics Research
Supports Adam/Eve NOT Macroevolution
(by Dr. Sanford of Cornell Univ. & Dr. Carter)


Does our "modern" CULTURE really teach
CRITICAL THINKING?

“We live in what may be the most anti-intellectual period in the history of Western civilization. We are not necessarily anti-academic, anti-technological, or anti-scientific. The accent is against the intellect itself. Secular culture has embraced a kind of impressionism that threatens to turn all our brains into mush, and the evangelical world has followed suit, developing an allergy to all things intellectual. The kind of debate waged between Luther and Erasmus or Edwards and Chubb would be unacceptable today. Their reasoning was too acute, their polemics too acerbic, their critiques too rapier-like for our modern comfort zones. Debates, if they are held today, are won by charm and a benign smile rather than by lucid argument."
Dr. R. C. Sproul, Burning Hearts Are Not Nourished by Empty Heads

"Rather than respond to the contemporary infatuation with postmodern ambiguity in a completely positive and non-polemical way, I find myself compelled to echo the inspired words of Jude and exhort my readers who truly love Christ: you need to contend earnestly for the faith. Truth is under heavy attack, and there are too few courageous warriors who are willing to fight. When we stand before the judgment seat of Christ, believers from this generation will not be able to justify their apathy by complaining that the strife of conflict over truth just seemed “too negative” for the kind of culture we lived in – or that the issues were “merely doctrinal” and therefore not worth the effort. . . . Remember, Christ rebuked the churches in Revelation 2-3 who had tolerated false teachers in their midst (2:14-16; 20-23). He expressly commended the Ephesian church for examining the claims of certain false apostles and exposing them as liars (2:2). Churches have a clear duty to guard the faith against false teachers who infiltrate. Christ Himself demands it."
Dr. John McArthur. THE TRUTH WAR


STUDENTS & TEACHERS, below are responses to the three main challenges to my "DIALOG/DEBATE" at MANDEVILLE HIGH -

- HANDOUT-OUTLINE
- POWER POINT in PDF with 100's of slides, quotes, and evidences. It highlights scholars including the inventor of the MRI Dr. Damadian, the inventor of the Gene Gun at Cornell Dr. Sanford, and many others representing the 1,000's of PhD's who recognize the serious problems with macroevolutionary theory.

First of all, please remember that MATURE dialog/debate should respectfully examine the best scholarship on all sides of any question:

Dr. George Church, Prof. of Genetics, Harvard Medical School on the cover of , DARWIN’S DOUBT, by Stephen Meyer PhD Cambridge, says it is:
"an opportunity for bridge-building, rather than dismissive polarization - bridges across cultural divides in great need of professional, respectful dialog ....”

1. DR. SANFORD's research in his book GENETIC ENTROPY has withstood peer review:

- Here is Dr. John Sanford's detailed scientific response to Scott Buchanan, a typical critic of John's book, GENETIC ENTROPY. If any teacher in your school posts online Buchanan's criticism of Sanford, please ask for Sanford's response to also be posted alongside. This should be the process of objective science debate :-)

2. DARWIN was an ATHEIST not an AGNOSTIC:

"By the time Darwin wrote Descent of Man in 1871, he had clearly abandoned belief in God.  He even provided a completely naturalistic explanation for the origin of religion.  He claimed that religion arose because people feared unknown natural forces and wrongly ascribed life to them.  Darwin thought religion was a psychological mistake" [emphasis added]
(from an article in AMERICAN THINKER, September 18, 2011 - Did Darwin Believe in God? by Dr. Richard Weikart - professor of history at California State University, Stanislaus, and author of From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racism in Germany (Palgrave Macmillan), as well as other books and articles in scholarly journals about social Darwinism and related themes.

3. DEFINITIONS OF "SCIENCE" should not limit the scope of inquiry, research, or conclusions:

* FIRST, please watch this 7 minute video of Dr. Meyer explaining
"Is Intelligent Design Science?" He addresses this key issue.

Meyer, Stephen C. (PhD Cambridge Univ.), Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. (2013) HarperCollins. Kindle Edition. [EMPHASIS ADDED]
“To claim that a specific theory does not qualify as scientific requires a definition of science or a set of definitional criteria by which to make that kind of a judgment. Some philosophers and scientists have asserted that for a scientific theory to qualify as scientific, it must meet various criteria of testability, falsifiability, observability, repeatability, and the like. Philosophers of science call these “demarcation criteria,” because some scientists purport to use them to define or “demarcate” science and to distinguish it from pseudo-science or from other forms of inquiry such as history, religion, or metaphysics.” (Kindle Locations 7187-7192)
And that is the problem. If scientists and philosophers of science do not have an agreed-upon definition of science, how can they settle questions about which theories do and do not qualify as scientific? If scientists lack such a definition, it’s difficult to argue that any particular theory is unscientific by definition. For this reason, philosophers of science, the scholars who study the nature and definition of science, now almost universally reject the use of demarcation arguments to decide the validity of theories or settle competition between them. They increasingly regard demarcation as an essentially semantic question and nothing more. Is theory X scientific or not? Answer: that depends upon which definition of science is used to decide” (Kindle Locations 7219-7222)
“Newton’s theory failed to as scientific by their definition, though it much more accurately fit the evidence. Such contradictions have long beset the whole enterprise of demarcation.” (Kindle Locations 7230-7232)
“In other words, there is no defensible definition of science, and no specific demarcation criterion, that justifies both excluding intelligent design from science and including competing materialistic evolutionary theories.” (Kindle Locations 7261-7263)

New Book Recommended

DARWIN'S DOUBT:
THE EXPLOSIVE ORIGIN OF ANIMAL LIFE
AND THE CASE FOR INTELLIGENT DESIGN

by Stephen Meyer PhD Cambridge

Dr. Meyer's first book, Signature in the Cell", masterfully exposed chemical evolutionary theory's foundational problem - new evidence showing "natural" chemical properties could not have created the first coded biological information, much less a living cell (origin of FIRST life).  His new book, Darwin's Doubt, reveals macroevolutionary theory's further problem - new evidence showing mutations and selection could not have created the new functionally specified bio-informational systems (genetic and epigenetic) found in the vast diversity of phyla (origin of ALL life).  Surprisingly for a book tackling such a technical subject, Dr. Meyer’s conversational style along with numerous practical examples and analogies make the book easily understandable even to non-scientists like me.

As a biology teacher at a private college-prep high school, my primary goal is to train students in the skill of critical logikos thinking. My honors classes begin each year with a unit on the philosophy and history of science, examining the crucial question “What is Science?”  Classic works by renowned scholars like Karl Popper and Thomas Kuhn have been helpful supplements for my classes in the past, yet Darwin's Doubt is one of the finest examples of analytical, critical thinking I've read in years.  Meyer’s profound yet simple explanations of the materialistic definitions of (and demarcations on) "science" that arbitrarily exclude even the possibility of an inference to Intelligent Design will be invaluable for teaching the importance of “multiple competing hypotheses”.  Truly objective scientists should follow evidence wherever it leads, even if they eventually end up face to face with a cause or Intelligent Causer they didn’t want to find.

Our school is implementing an all iPad program next year and I plan to include Darwin's Doubt as a supplemental (counter-balance) reading.  I have no doubt that Darwin's Doubt will be a major force in a type of paradigm shift described by Kuhn as a "scientific revolution" - this one resulting from exciting new discoveries about biological information systems producing teleological function and beauty evident among all living creatures.

** Prayer request regarding Intelligent Design, suffering & death - Once a person comes to the logical conclusion that an Intelligent Mind designed life (coded bio-info), that person must next address the significant theological problem of theodicy (how, why, and when our good God's creation became filled with evil - violent competition, pain, fear, suffering, disease, horror, and death). This problem is inherent to any uniformitarian theory of geology and paleontology that includes an inference to Intelligent Design.  Uniformitarianism teaches that fossil bearing rock layers (showing creatures who experienced suffering, disease, and death) were deposited over millions of years before mankind existed and sinned, and therefore were not deposited by a global catastrophic flood after mankind rebelled.  Therefore, Intelligent Design mixed with some views of geological uniformitarianism can unwittingly portray the "Designer" as the cause not only of bio-info, but also of original suffering, disease, and death. In contrast, the Bible clearly says that God is good and it was mankind's sin that caused progressive separation from God resulting in devolving disorder (escalating entropy), dysfunction, disease, and death. (Please see the research of Dr. John Sanford of Cornell on Genetic Entropy, Geophysicist Dr. John Baumgardner of Los Alamos and geologists Snelling and Austin on the age of the earth, fossil bearing rock layers, etc. - and Dr. Terry Mortenson on the history of geology and this important theological issue of theodicy.)Sid Galloway, see below for commendations of DARWIN'S DOUBT from men far more qualified to evaluate this book.

"Stephen Meyer’s new book Darwin’s Doubt represents an opportunity for bridge-building, rather than dismissive polarization — bridges across cultural divides in great need of professional, respectful dialog ...."
Dr. George Church
Prof. of Genetics, Harvard Medical School

"Dr. Meyer makes it clear that these well-documented facts of paleontology pose a serious challenge to Darwin’s theory, the view that has held sway in biology (and well beyond) for nearly 150 years.  The issue on the table is not now, nor has it ever been, the fact of evolution (change over time); the issue has always been the mechanism of evolution – is it blind and undirected or is it under the control of an intelligence that had a goal in mind? That’s the nub of the question, and in Darwin’s Doubt, Stephen Meyer has masterfully laid out one of the most compelling lines of evidence for the latter."
William S. Harris PhD, Professor, Sanford School of Medicine

BINPS -
Biological Information New Perspectives

"In the spring of 2011, a diverse group of scientists gathered at Cornell University to discuss their research into the nature and origin of biological information. This symposium brought together experts in information theory, computer science, numerical simulation, thermodynamics, evolutionary theory, whole organism biology, developmental biology, molecular biology, genetics, physics, biophysics, mathematics, and linguistics. This volume presents new research by those invited to speak at the conference.

The contributors to this volume use their wide-ranging expertise in the area of biological information to bring fresh insights into the many explanatory difficulties associated with biological information. These authors raise major challenges to the conventional scientific wisdom, which attempts to explain all biological information exclusively in terms of the standard mutation/selection paradigm.

Several clear themes emerged from these research papers: 1) Information is indispensable to our understanding of what life is; 2) Biological information is more than the material structures that embody it; 3) Conventional chemical and evolutionary mechanisms seem insufficient to fully explain the labyrinth of information that is life. By exploring new perspectives on biological information, this volume seeks to expand, encourage, and enrich research into the nature and origin of biological information."


BY DESIGN: Evidence for Nature's Intelligent Designer - the God of the Bible, by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati

"Creationist intellectual Dr Jonathan Sarfati has a habit of producing books that become ‘staples’ of the biblical creation movement. His Refuting Evolution has the most copies in print of any creation book, ever. And it is no exaggeration to say that his comprehensive tome Refuting Compromise is the most powerful theological and scientific defense of a straightforward Genesis creation available. So it’s a thrill to know of his new book, By Design—a definitive work on design by a leading biblical creationist. Today, ID or ‘intelligent design’ is capturing headlines (and igniting controversy) around the world, thanks in large part to the important Ben Stein film, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. Biblical creationists have generally been happy to see ID’s challenge to Darwinian naturalism. However, we have been concerned at the tendency of some ID promoters to distance themselves from the God of the Bible as the Designer—and especially from the real history He revealed in Genesis" (Comments: Dr. Carl Wieland)

"This beautifully packaged, 5-DVD set is a must for every creationist’s library! Using illustrations and photographs of rock formations from around the world, respected geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling (prolific researcher/author and publisher of www.AnswersResearchJournal.org) reveals how the geological record confirms the true history of the earth, found in the Bible. Includes the following products. Approximately 55-minutes per DVD."

EARTH'S CATASTROPHIC PAST, by Andrew Snelling B.Sc. (Hon), PhD Geology
University of Sydney, AU
(Full Biography)

"What does the rock record say about earth's history? This long-awaited update to The Genesis Flood was written by researcher Andrew Snelling, one of the world's leading geologists in the creation science movement. Earth's Catastrophic Past provides up-to-date geological evidence that demonstrates the authority and accuracy of the biblical account of creation and the Flood.

With in-depth scholarly research and insight, topics covered in this two-volume set include: The Biblical Record of the Global Genesis Flood; Non-Geological Arguments Used Against a Global Genesis Flood; Noah, the Ark, and the Animals; The Framework for a Scriptural Geology; and A Biblical Geologic Model of Earth History."


Dr. Terry Mortenson PhD History of Geology DVDs

"The church’s compromise on biblical authority began before Charles Darwin. [These] eye-opening [talks] by historian Dr. Terry Mortenson [show] that biblical geologists defended biblical history (and exposed the fallacies in an old earth), but the church refused to listen . . . . Dr. Mortenson introduces the men and summarizes the theories that helped popularize the unbiblical idea of millions of years of earth history. Informing you about the “scriptural geologists” who opposed the old-earth geology in the early 19th century, he shows that the battle over the age of the earth is a worldview conflict of foundational importance. With a summary of some of the many godly Christian leaders over the past 150 years who have compromised with millions of years, he gives a critically needed historical context for understanding why the authority of Scripture is so undermined in the Church today and how this relates to the proclamation of the gospel. Great for teens and adults, especially pastors."

* New pivotal article by Dr. Mortenson (Strongly Recommended):
"“Systematic Theology Texts and the Age of the Earth

- Coming to Grips With Genesis

"Fourteen scholars present rigorous biblical and theological arguments in favor of a young earth and global Flood and also address a number of contemporary old-earth interpretations of Genesis.

This unique, substantial, historical, theological, and exegetical defense of the literal history of Genesis 1-11 is designed for seminary professors and students, pastors, and missionaries, as well as laypeople and students who want to dig deeper into Scripture.

Must reading especially for those inclined toward accepting millions of years."

GENETIC ENTROPY & The Mystery of the Genome
Dr. John Sanford of genetics at Cornell University for 25 years, published over 70 scientific publications, awarded over 25 scientific patents.

[His book demonstrates the statistical & scientific impossibility of the claim that mutations are a mechanism that could have created new genetic information to make new kinds of creatures.]

“Modern Darwinism is . . . . that man is merely the product of random mutations plus natural selection. . . . . It is for this reason that the overwhelming majority of youth who start out with a belief that there is more to life than mere chemistry – will lose their faith while at college. I believe this is also the cause of the widespread self-destructive and self-denigrating behaviors we see throughout our culture." Dr. Sanford


Refuting Evolution 1 & 2
by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati
(Biography)
Refuting Evolution 1 is a hard-hitting critique of the most up-to-date arguments for evolution, to challenge educators, students and parents. It is a powerful, yet concise summary of the arguments against evolution and for creation. It will stimulate much discussion and help students and teachers think more critically about origins. (High School–Adult) 144 pages.

Refuting Evolution 2
Respected CMI scientist Dr Jonathan Sarfati, Refuting Evolution’s sequel comprehensively refutes arguments to support evolution (as presented in TV documentaries and Scientific American). Read world-leading evolutionists in their own words, and then find straightforward answers from science and the Bible. Refuting Evolution 2 will prepare you to answer the best arguments thrown at you by peers, teachers, neighbors and skeptics. (High School–Adult) 240 pages.

 


Starlight Time and the New Physics
by Dr. John Hartnett
(Biography)
"Written by Dr John Hartnett, this is a bold new answer to the distant starlight issue. Many still doubt the Bible’s clear timescale because, they think, it is impossible for light to have reached the Earth in only a few thousand years from stars that are millions of light-years away. This misconception is often the ultimate stumbling block to a straightforward acceptance of the Bible—even the gospel itself. Understandable by intelligent laypersons, with technical equations and papers put into 111 pages of appendices for the specialist. (High School–Adult) 231 pages."


Should Christians Embrace Evolution:
Biblical and Scientific Responses

Edited by Dr. Norman Nevin

Dr. Nevin is Professor Emeritus of Medical Genetics, Queen's University of Belfast and Head of the Northern Regional Genetics Service. He has held the positions of secretary, vice-president and president of the UK Clinical Genetics Society as well as serving on various national and international committees notably the Human Genetics Advisory Commission. He is a member of the European Concerted Action for congenital abnormalities. Professor Nevin was a founder member of the UK Gene Therapy Advisory Committee. His research interests have resulted in over 300 peer reviewed publications on various aspects of genetics, especially single gene disorders and congenital abnormalities.

Praise for the book:

"The question posed has caused much recent debate. The answer given by these authors is an emphatic "No!" Firstly, they demonstrate with compelling logic that theistic evolution has serious theological consequences for the gospel. Secondly (and this should make us weep), the theistic evolutionary project is so unnecessary. As the second part of this first-class survey makes clear, there is actually no compelling reason to accept Darwinism anyway. Homological arguments have bitten the dust, junk DNA turns out to be anything but junk, and as for the origin of life itself, biologists haven't got a clue. In terms of recent discoveries in molecular biology, Darwinism is not only wrong but irrelevant, a Victorian relic."
Dr Colin Reeves, Professor of Operational Research in the School of Mathematical and Information Sciences (MIS) at Coventry University

"This book is much needed. As a nuclear physicist, I have observed reconciliation between science and theology in numerous areas, not because of modified theology, but because continuing scientific discovery has overturned nineteenth-century perspectives that sought to challenge biblical theology. The current progress in molecular biology is beyond Darwin’s wildest imagination, and readers would be well advised to examine the evidence. As one who lived under Communism, I understand too well that the more a society seeks to enforce an idea, the more important it is to question it."
Dalibor Krupa, Research Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Institute of Physics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava, Slovakia




** New Book Highly Recommended!

The Greatest Hoax on Earth: Refuting Dawkins on Evolution
by Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, PhD

(Chemist, Chess Champion, & world's best selling authors on "Creation" issues).
* Having had the privilege of numerous personal conversations with Dr. Sarfati, I am convinced that his driving motive is to present the full truth in a modern world in which censorship and deceptive propaganda dominate the "Origins" debate.

What others are saying about the Dr. Sarfati's newest book:

“Any rational debate requires the honest presentation of both sides. But there exists a powerful, self-styled ‘intellectual elite’ which would deny us the right to consider all the evidence. They would have a debate wherein only one side was heard, while the other side was either ignored or grossly misrepresented. It is crucial that all honest truth-seekers who read Dawkins' book The Greatest Show on Earth also read Jonathan Sarfati's book The Greatest Hoax on Earth?.”
John Sanford Ph.D., Courtesy Associate Professor, Dept. of Horticultural Sciences, Cornell University. (John is a pioneer of genetic engineering and inventor of the ‘gene gun’)

“I have been singularly blessed by Jonathan’s writing. His Refuting Evolution and By Design rank up there with the best of the creationist literature. This work, however, surely tops them all. Sarfati’s crisp, incisive no-holds-barred approach is a fearsome weapon, and Dawkins may rue the day he decided to challenge Christianity to a duel on origins. The Greatest Hoax on Earth? is an excellent rebuttal to the best evolution has to offer. The reader should walk away with the understanding that evolutionary theory is a house of cards and its chief spokesmen are promoting poor, illogical, and false arguments against the only viable alternative: biblical creation.”
Robert Carter, Ph.D. in Marine Biology and Genetics (University of Miami)

“Dawkins is living in a fantasy world and attributing non-natural power to natural selection to support his case about evolution. Sarfati does a brilliant job of exposing the shallowness in Dawkins’ reasoning and the absurdities of Dawkins’ claims . to demonstrate why evolution is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated in the guise of reason and science.”
John Baumgardner, Ph.D. in Geophysics (UCLA), for many years a research scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

"I lost my Evolutionary Faith when being taught by Londa University's Professor J. Z. Young, FRS, arguably the greatest Darwinian evolutionist of the 20th century. I have been waiting for a 21st Century genius to prove that the Darwinian Evolution Emperor has no clothes. Jonathan Sarfati is that genius as you can see from this his latest masterpiece. With an astonishing array of scientific references, Sarfati has demonstrated that he is far and away the better debater than Richard Dawkins. Read it, and re-read it!" Dr. Felix Kanotey-Ahulu (a world authority on sickle cell anemia), Kwegyir Aggrey Distinguished Professor of Human Genetics, University of Cape Coast, Ghana, and Former Consultant Physician Genetic Counselor, Cromwell Hospital, London.

Dr. Sarfati, blindfolded, simultaneously plays 12 chess opponents, holding mental images of twelve boards in his mind until all 12 games are complete.

"Dr Jonathan Sarfati obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry with two physics papers substituted (nuclear and condensed matter physics). His Ph.D. in Chemistry was awarded for a thesis entitled ‘A Spectroscopic Study of some Chalcogenide Ring and Cage Molecules’. He has co-authored papers in mainstream scientific journals on high-temperature superconductors and selenium-containing ring- and cage-shaped molecules."

"One of Jonathan’s other passions is chess, and like most things that he undertakes, he sets a standard few in the world can match. A former New Zealand Chess Champion, he represented New Zealand in three Chess Olympiads, and he has drawn a tournament game with former world champion Boris Spassky (chess players might want to play through the game here). The International Chess Federation (abbreviated to FIDE for its French name Fédération Internationale des Échecs) awarded him the title of F.I.D.E. Master (FM) in 1988. At many CMI conferences and camps, he has become famous for his ‘chess challenges’ against multiple players simultaneously—while blindfolded, with his ‘seeing’ opponents’ moves called out to him. At a recent CMI event in Sydney, Australia, he achieved a ‘personal best’ by playing 12 opponents at once in this way.4 A visiting creationist, a full professor at a leading UK university, was ‘text messaging’ his wife, saying ‘this is astounding—world-class—the world’s media should be here!’"




Alien Intrusion, by Gary Bates

"I found the book extremely interesting, intriguing and profitable. I will never see the topic in the same light again. Be prepared to have your own assumptions about this world — and the cosmos — challenged.
What we “see” is not always as it seems!"
