Destruction of Plants Fits Flood Narrative

A recent study has found that the destruction of plants preceded the destruction of many forms of animal life in the rock record.1 This is exactly what was predicted in ICR’s Flood model.2 According to standard uniformitarian theory, the boundary between the Permian and Triassic Systems is supposed to be marked by the largest extinction event of all time. Evolutionary scientists claim that roughly 90% of ocean species and 70% of land species went extinct suddenly at this boundary.1 This eve

Control Loops in Humans and Nature

Control Loops in Humans and Nature

Ever had a blood test? Along with a value measured, there are also the normal max/min limits for that value. This implies that the body normally controls that quantity between those limits. How does it do that? It measures the value and produces more or less of that quantity based on the value measured. This is called a control loop. There are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of control loops in the human body. To understand the components of a control loop, let us look at a famili

Creation and Climate Science with Dr. Jake Hebert

ICR physicist Dr. Jake Hebert* recently made a guest appearance on Good Heavens! A Podcast About the Universe with Wayne and Dan. Dr. Hebert presented his perspective on climate science, its relevance to the history of Genesis, and the importance of correctly interpreting geology and environmental science. Listen to the episode here: Part 1 and Part 2. *Dr. Jake Hebert is Research Associate at the Institute for Creation Research and earned his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Texas

Can Asteroids Select Life?

A recent study published in Science claims that an asteroid caused new forms of plants to evolve.1-3 But can an asteroid really be responsible for selecting new forms of life? Mónica Carvalho of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama and her colleagues studied fossil pollen and leaves from Colombia that spanned the K-Pg (Cretaceous-Paleogene) boundary.1 They concluded that plant diversity declined by 45% at the K-Pg and did not recover for 6 million years.1 When plants did recov

Greenland: Ice-Free Not That Long Ago

Preserved leaves and twigs in a tube of soil show Greenland was largely ice-free in the relatively recent past.1 This discovery has important implications both for the ages that uniformitarian scientists assign to the deep ice cores and the global warming debate. In 1966 United States Army scientists drilled the Camp Century ice core in northwest Greenland. The bottom of the core included a 15-foot-long section of frozen dirt. This frozen soil sample was long forgotten but was re-examined by

Extra-biblical Flood Legends

“Creation stands or falls on the Genesis Flood,” stated a creation geologist years ago. The fact of the Flood covering all the earth is undeniable. As described in Genesis 7, 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. 20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and

Big Fish Fossil Recalls Big Flop

One of the most famous living fossils is back in the news. The coelacanth is an endangered deep-sea fish. Its fins fit to unique, wrist-like bones, and unique bony plates envelop what scientists call its lung, which is like the swim bladder that controls buoyancy in other fishes. A new coelacanth fossil find measures more than double the size of live specimens while calling attention to outdated ideas about fossils. This fossil’s story of discovery began when a private fossil collector aske

Bacterial Proteins Use Quantum Mechanics

Researchers have found a dimmer switch inside a protein. It tunes the protein’s configuration to take advantage of quantum mechanics during photosynthesis. Two parallels with human engineering leave no doubts about the engineered origins of this light collector. University of Chicago scientists found an elegant sensor connected to the dimmer switch. Two critical chemical parts of the protein together act “as a trigger,” according to University of Chicago news.1 Gregory Engel is a che

Human Genome 20th Anniversary—Junk DNA Hits the Trash

The first rough drafts of the human genome were reported in 2001 (one in the private sector and one in the public sector).1-2 Since then, after 20 years of intensive globally conducted research, the data has revealed a wealth of complexity that has completely upset all of the original evolutionary misconceptions.3 Most importantly, the false evolutionary paradigm of “junk DNA” has been utterly debunked in favor of a new model, one containing pervasive functionality and network complexity.

Flood Solves Mystery of Amazon Sea

In the past 15 years, it’s been determined that a vast ocean once covered the western Amazon drainage basin.1 However, studies of the Miocene fossils reveal a conflicting story.1 Fossils are found representing both fresh water and salt water environments in the same layers, leaving evolutionary scientists befuddled. How did these fossils get mixed together? A relatively recent paper published in the Journal of Biogeography seems to settle the question—or does it?2 The current secular view

Human High-Altitude Habitation Reveals Adaptive Design

Humans have the remarkable ability to inhabit high altitudes where living conditions are especially harsh and challenging. A new study in Genome Biology and Evolution has shown that specifically directed epigenetic modifications to various places in the genome are an important heritable adaptive mechanism in conferring this unique ability.1 These new results utterly refute the false Darwinian paradigm of natural selection—revealing innate systems of complex biological engineering that…

The Pope, the Flood, and Global Warming

In a new book, Pope Francis warns that a “great flood” could result if civilization fails to stop global warming, and he draws an analogy between future sea level rise and Noah’s Flood. He writes, “The Bible says that the flood is the result of God’s wrath....It is a figure of God’s wrath, who according to the Bible has seen too many bad things and decides to obliterate humanity.”1 His statement that the Flood is a figure of God’s wrath—rather than a demonstration of God’s wr
