It’s funny how many will grasp at straws and see reason in illogical thought processes. People will believe outright lies and falsehood rather than believe the truth. Anything that lets a person hold on to the belief that there is no God – many will embrace and defend these beliefs even with undeniable proof that these beliefs are incorrect. Atheism is a prime example of this.
Creation itself and the things that reside within said creation fairly scream; there is a God! I have even heard it said that intelligent design does not necessarily reflect that God is responsible for said design. Really now, who then is? No human could have designed Creation let alone the things in it – like humans.
Creation VS the Big Bang Theory
“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing, spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.”

Theoretical physicist, futurist, and bestselling author Michio Kaku has developed a theory that points to the existence of God using string theory.
String theory assumes that seemingly specific material particles are actually “vibrational states.”
His view about intelligent design has riled the scientific community because Dr. Kaku is considered one of its most respected and prominent voices. He is the co-creator of string field theory, a branch of string theory.
“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence,” he stated, according to the Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies.
Dr. Kaku has continued Einstein’s search for a “Theory of Everything,” seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe—the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism. FULL POST

Historian Richard Weikart's new book, The Death of Humanity: And the Case for Life, is an important study of the erosion of the most basic values in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the West. Many things are striking about Weikart's powerful treatment of his subject, but I noted, in particular, his discussion of some statements from atheist biologist Richard Dawkins. These statements have a curious, persistent, and revealing inconsistency to them.
Here is Weikart, for example, on a 2007 interview with Dawkins:
[C]onsider how Richard Dawkins responded when Larry Taunton asked in an interview if his rejection of external moral standards meant that Islamic extremists might not be wrong. Dawkins replied, "What's to prevent us from saying Hitler wasn't right? I mean, that is a genuinely difficult question." Taunton admitted that he was stupefied by Dawkins's answer -- as he should have been. Anyone who thinks that making a moral judgment about Hitler is difficult has lost their moral compass completely and has no business pontificating about any moral issue (or proclaiming that he has discovered the "root of all evil" -- which is what he called religion, of course).

THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION
The first major changes occurred in the 18th century when land closures forced people off the land to live in towns and work in factories. This was a mass movement of people who left behind them a simple agrarian society where they lived off the land and where home and work were in one place. But in the town or city home and work were driven apart. No longer was it possible to work at home, spinning yarn or operating a hand loom; no longer possible to grow vegetables on the common land shared by the village, or have a goat, a lamb or hens in the backyard. Home was a cottage where a woman had her babies and weaned them, managed her household, her husband, spun yard, prepared meals, educated her children attended church, cared for the sick and did a thousand and one other duties: keeping the cottage clean, washing and ironing clothes, baking bread, cooking etc. Her husband worked on the land, or he was a tradesman, a blacksmith, a builder. Together, his wife and he kept the family together through spring, summer autumn and winter, sharing the work and the pleasures of family life. His wife was not his chattel or his servant but his lover and she worked just as hard as he did if not harder. FULL POST

DEADLINE FOR SEMINARS: April 7. SEE BELOW.
Before I tell you about Discovery Institute's two intensive 9-day seminars, watch this new video about intelligent design. Ever thought of excessive beauty as a sign of genius in design? Watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FothcJW-Quo&feature=youtu.be
This is the sort of thing you will learn at Discovery Institute's Summer Seminars.
The video asks:
Why do centipedes always have an odd number of body segments? How did that help the survive? Why do nearly all mammals, from mice to giraffes, have seven bones in their cervical vertebrae? All octopi have eight tentacles. Why not six, or ten? Jellyfish have a mesmerizing radial symmetry. Sand dollars and starfish both display a star-like pattern. Nature seems to have plenty of room to develop order and patterns that do no serve an immediate survival purpose. FULL POST

#3: Introducing The Information Enigma, Intelligent Design in a Nutshell
Intelligent design, or ID, may be the most misunderstood scientific idea ever. That's why we are delighted today to unveil an easily accessible 21-minute crystallization of ID's major argument in the form of a beautifully produced video from Discovery Institute, The Information Enigma. Read more.
#2: Hominid Hype Over a Species of Unclear Evolutionary Importance
The media is once again abuzz over the discovery of a new hominin fossil. The fossil is named Homo naledi, represented by hundreds of bones found in a cave near Johannesburg, South Africa. It has long been recognized that we are missing fossils documenting the supposed transition from the apelike genus Australopithecus to the humanlike Homo. Despite what you may be hearing in the media, Homo naledi does not solve this problem. Read more.

TO BE TRUE IS REAL
Whether we are aware of it or not, everything is either true and real or out of true and false. This is because things are what they are, or what they are not. This becomes clear when we discover that the world is not flat, the sun does rise and set, and the earth does not stand still. What was once clear is no longer so because for thousands of years philosophers and scientists believed what they saw with their eyes. The earth looked flat, the sun appeared to move from east to west and then disappear, and the earth did not seem to move. All common mistakes from thinking with our eyes.
What was true about these things was not visible. And the truth had first to be imagined before it could be believed and proved. To think with our eyes is to see things only as they appear to us and not as they are in themselves. How do we know then that a thing is 'out of true' and unreal'.
THE BLIND SPOT
The blind spot in what our ancestors saw was the earth. They did not see the earth moving or turning so they imagined the earth to be stationary. The earth they believed was the centre of the universe around which our sun and planets orbited. The knowledge that night and day was due to the earth revolving on its own axis in relation to the sun, was not observable to the ancient scientists.
The planets in the night sky were seen just as we see them today but whilst they were believed to orbit the earth like the sun, the astronomers knew that their appearance in the sky should have been different if the sun orbited the earth. Since their appearance was due to the sun's rays their position and appearance in space should have been different. FULL POST

Maybe you saw the “hoax” article on Facebook about a pending earthquake and tsunami in the Pacific Northwest.
A quick response from the National Weather Service said there was nothing to worry about.
But for record, the last time the Juan De Fuca tectonic plate and the North American tectonic plate had a super destructive meeting was January 26, 1700.
And also for the record, these super-destructive earthquakes happen with eerie 243-year regularity. So if there is some concern about a pending quake, the ominous anniversary reminds us that we’re overdue a “big one”.
These mega-earthquakes have been traced all the way back to AD 599. But now this amazingly beautiful real estate is home to millions—in cities like Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Portland, and Salem with hundreds of towns in between. FULL POST
