Racing Plate Tectonics Nonsense


Aug 23

Posted: under Creation Blog, Institute for Creation Research.
Tags: , , ,

The Institute for Creation Research (ICR) news article for 23 August 2010 highlights a slight difference in plate tectonic movement rates to prove that their catastrophic plate tectonics model is feasible.   Their claims are based on computer modeling, programmed by a YEC theorist, who wrote the programming to prove the Flood!  Naturally, biased programming yields biased results.  In reality, YEC proponents have no hard scientific evidence to back up their claims, whereas science has hard evidence of plate movements to prove the old age of the earth.  Click here for more.

Unfortunately for young earth creationism, the existence of a wind-blown desert sandstone right in the middle of supposed Noah’s Flood rock layers is an unsurmountable problem.  In this review, the evidence for a wind-blown desert sandstone is revealed, and it comes from an unusual source…the young earth creationists themselves!  Click here to read this review.

Pterosaur Landing Trackway

Tags: ,

A new study shows how pterosaurs landed, and the Institute for Creation Research tries to use this to show how evolution could not account for the development of the landing technique of these animals. The explanation fails to explain why there is a landing trackway in sediments deposited by Noah’s Flood.  Click here to read the article.

The Last Dinosaur’s Tombstone


Jun 12

Posted: under Creation Blog, Dinosaurs, Institute for Creation Research.
Tags: , , ,

In a classic example of young earth deception, Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research misleads his readers concerning the report of dinosaurs surviving past the end of the Cretaceous Period.  Judging from the source material that he used, he must have willfully decided to ignore the scientific data in an effort to argue for a young earth.  Apparently, it is more important to argue for a young earth than it is to be truthful in reporting the facts.  Click here to read the rebuttal.

Stone Blades

Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research reports on the discovery of stone blades that date to 500,000 years ago.  This pushes the development of these blades back by 200,000+ years.  Does this mean that anthropologists are “frustrated” by this discovery, as Thomas claims?  Click here to read the rebuttal.

Ancient Oxygen-Rich Rocks

Tags: , , ,

Scientists believe that the early earth, prior to 2.5 billion years ago, did not have an oxygen-rich atmosphere.  The Institute for Creation Research reported today that there is a recent discovery of oxygen-rich rocks from 3.46 billion years ago, and they claim this is proof that the earth always had an oxygen atmosphere.  Does this new find require scientists to now believe that the early earth had an oxygen atmosphere?   Click here for more on this issue.

Ancient Sea Level

Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research thinks that recent evidence for a higher sea level in earth’s past supports the idea of a global flood.  He seems surprised that we now have solid proof of higher sea levels in the past, yet geologists have known this for many years.  Click here to read the rebuttal to this poorly researched article.

Arctic Fossil Turtle


Mar 28

Tags: , , , ,

Does a fossil of a normally tropical turtle, found in the Arctic, damage the case for an old earth?  YEC author Brian Thomas of the Institute for Creation Research thinks so.  However, when you consider all the evidence, and not just half of it, there is no problem at all for old earth believers.  Click here to read this rebuttal.
