Fall was in the air that September, and the grizzly bears I was attempting to photograph in the Beartooth Mountains were hungry, getting ready for their long winter’s sleep. Waking up, making coffee, and telling myself that today would be the day I got the frame was my routine. I walked along the edge of the lake to check on a recently placed trap, thinking about all of the problems that a bear creates as it raids stashes of pinecones buried by red squirrels for their winter reserves of food.
Rush’s camera traps also attracted the attention of other animals, like this curious black bear. At its simplest, the setup consists of a camera, a trigger, and the promise of disappointment. While checking my cameras that day, I had no interest in running into any of these bears as they filled their bellies, so I made as much noise as I could as I went, hollering and banging as a precaution to scare away any that might be nearby. I walked backward the entire distance back to my four-wheeler, shaking, expecting to see her charge out of the brush again in my direction. A camera trap near Yellowstone National Park catches a grizzly bear stealing whitebark pine nuts from a squirrel’s cache.
Drew Rush photographed grizzly bears for an April 2015 National Geographic magazine story looking at the devastating effects of the mountain pine beetle on forests—and ecosystems—in the northwestern United States and Canada. I’ve hiked into Granite Peak both from the north over Froze To Death Plateau and from the south past the Skytop Lakes. I think that its fantastic that National Geographic has the intelligence to find and research these problems that effect all of us out here in the west.
Soo… as an outsider I do wonder if it is a wise idea to have a flash attached to the camera. It’s what happens when you stay where TripAdvisor tells you, eat where UrbanSpoon recommends, and Yelp your way through a vacation—just like everyone else.
Sure, you could go to Paris and never climb the Eiffel Tower, but with so little time off to play with, it’s a chance many of us aren’t willing to take. For every city you’ve heard about, there’s another waiting for you to discover it; but in a sea full of travel deals and Must-See lists, it can be difficult to discover the smaller destination fish. So how do you find those spots that will wow you without risking a vacation where you come back disappointed?
I’ll never forget the afternoon I spent chatting with a couple in the lobby of a hotel in Jordan.
The Lebanese capital had never been on my list—and is far from a guidebook staple—but suddenly I realized how easy it would’ve been to add it.
Travel should never just be about “getting there.” Look at a paper map, read up on the neighborhoods—and how they relate to one another—in the destination you’re visiting, or simply chat up your hotel concierge for recommendations. In this age where information is only a tweet away, there’s no reason to cross any destination off your list prematurely.
You can head straight to London’s theater district, or you can opt to get off the Tube a few stops early and explore a high street that holds its own set of memorable experiences and characters. There is no better way to get to know some of the local vernacular then to blend in on a city commute. This isn’t about being reckless or unsafe, it’s about choosing a path that isn’t so popular that it has lost its allure.
Since its inception, the company has funded many projects or research expeditions throughout the world on such topics as the study of oceans, mountains, ethnology and archeology. In 2006 amateur fossil hunters discovered a well-preserved Protosphyraena snout in Australia, which is the first time the fish has been found south of the Equator. Protosphyraena was a medium-size predatory fish of the Late Cretaceous seas with a long swordlike snout and bladelike teeth positioned to stab fleeing prey. A bizarre gallery of Mesozoic monsters prompts John Updike to ask: What has evolution wrought? Moon bears ‘Mara’ and ‘Angus’ – two of the rescued bears at the Animals Asia sanctuary in North Vietnam – are free to enjoy their freedom a while longer, following a last-minute reprieve (see our previous post on this sanctuary). In an 11th hour decision in January, the Prime Minister of Vietnam, Nguyen Tan Dung, granted permission for the animal welfare organisation Animals Asia Foundation (AAF) to remain at the Tam Dao site and continue its work rescuing bears from the illegal bile trade. The state-of-the-art sanctuary, built on the edge of Tam Dao National Park, has been at the centre of a high-profile land dispute since July 2011, threatening the rescued Moon and Sun bears and the livelihood of 85 local and international staff. The centre was purpose built and paid for by Animals Asia Foundation, with the infrastructure and development creating a tourism drawcard. The rescue centre was served with an eviction notice late last year following an aggressive campaign led by Tam Dao National Park director Do Dinh Tien, aimed at forcing the staff and bears off the land. The threatened eviction would have been in direct violation of the Vietnam Government’s 2005 Memorandum of Understanding in which AAF was granted the right to develop a facility on 12 hectares of the Tam Dao National Park, where it could house and rehabilitate bears rescued from the bile industry.
AAF is a charity that is devoted to ending the barbaric practice of bear bile farming and improving the welfare of animals in China and Vietnam, in particular the moon bears.
Asiatic black bears are known as ‘moon bears’ because of the distinctive white crescent on their chests.
During the bile extraction process, the bears are subdued and have their abdomens jabbed numerous times with long needles in an effort to locate the gall bladder and extract the bile. The bile is reputed to cure everything from bruises to cancer, and is consumed as a libido-enhancing tonic and hangover cure throughout Asia. In 2011, scientists estimated there were fewer than 200 bears left in the wild, judging by the lack of physical evidence such as bear droppings and claw marks on trees. It is a bit of relief to know someone is going something for this part of nature that doesn’t have much media or society attention.

Society Field Inspection 2016: Gulf of CaliforniaDescribed by Jacques Cousteau as the "aquarium of the world," the Gulf of California in Mexico is threatened by coastal development, climate change, and other human activities.
Support National GeographicWe've supported more than 11,000 grants to scientists and others in the field.Learn more about our work. Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi. With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa.
In addition, the absence of any other animal remains or large debris in the fossil chamber strongly suggests that these non-human beings intentionally deposited their dead within this cave.
Science is the investigation of the material world we live in through observation and experiment. The formulation of the hypothesis, which is the first step of the process, is often dependent on the scientists' basic viewpoint. This issue, that is, the issue of establishing a proper hypothesis, requires an entirely different source than mere scientific data. The material universe, and predominantly, the Earth we live in, is specially designed to allow for human life. Though religion may be that which determines the goal, it has, nevertheless, learned from science, in the broadest sense, what means will contribute to the attainment of the goals it has set up.
Since the middle of the 19th century, however, the scientific community has divorced itself from this divine source, and come under the influence of a materialist philosophy. Materialism, an idea that dates back to ancient Greece, maintains the absolute existence of matter and denies God. Today, in retrospect, we see that the claims put forth by materialism were but a waste of time for science. Until the early 20th century, the conventional opinion of the scientific community, which was then under the influence of the materialists, was that the universe has infinite dimensions, that it existed in infinite time, and will exist infinitely.
With his giant telescope, Hubble discovered that the stars were racing away, not only from us, but also from each other. In fact, earlier on, Albert Einstein had already theoretically calculated that the universe could not be static.
In fact, the reference to this exploding point having zero volume is but a theoretical expression. It required a very short time for the Cobe satellite to find the evidence to prove the hypothesis of the Big Bang. In 1989, NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, launched the COBE satellite into space, for the purpose of research into cosmic background radiation. The universe came into being through the explosion of a single point-mass that had zero volume. As the above example makes clear, if someone is blindly devoted to materialism he is reluctant to admit any evidence to the contrary. On the other hand, many scientists, who did not resolve themselves unconditionally to denying God's existence, today accept that God, the All-Powerful, created the universe. Indeed, given the truth of the maxim ex nihilo nihil fit (out of nothing comes nothing), the Big Bang requires a supernatural cause. Another important conclusion to be drawn from the Big Bang theory is that, as we have mentioned earlier, a scientific approach based on divine knowledge will be highly successful in unraveling the mysteries of the universe.
When we look at the history of 20th century science, we see that similar occurrences took place in other fields as well. Materialists not only proposed that the universe existed since infinite time, but also claimed that there is no design or purpose in the universe. When we see a complex design, we immediately understand that it is the product of an intelligent agent. Every new discovery, however, further denied the chaos and chance theories, revealing that there is an enormous design in the universe. Only a highly intelligent person can reconstruct the scattered pieces of Albert Einstein's puzzle seen here. Just as the racist ideology brought disaster for humanity by leading to World War II, so did the materialist ideology drag the world of science into darkness needlessly.
If, however, the scientific community had based its efforts, not on the misconception of materialism, but on the reality that the universe was created by God, scientific research would have taken a more proper course. The most instructive example of an improper orientation for science, was the adoption of Darwin's evolutionary theory.
The theory of evolution contends that life came about by the configuration of lifeless matter through chance. Nevertheless, despite all firm evidence, evolutionists perform countless studies and experiments, write volumes of books crammed with nothing but fallacies and errors, establish institutions, hold conferences, and air television programs, to prove evolution. On the other hand, a number of scientists or thinkers have realized what a grave misconception the theory of evolution has been. I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it's been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books in the future.
I suppose that nobody will deny that it is a great misfortune if an entire branch of science becomes addicted to a false theory. Even a number of evolutionary scientists have recognized that the theory they advocate does not concur with fact and feel uneasy about it. Now, let us look at all the futile effort made to support the unscientific claims of the theory of evolution, which cost science nothing but a great waste of time and resources. In the scientific understanding of the Middle Ages, people supposed that living organisms could arise from non-living materials. The second idea maintains that there is an unsurpassable border between living and non-living matter. On the contrary, divine sources state that the only power to give life to inanimate matter can be God's creative power.
Experiments conducted by two important scientists, however, laid the idea of spontaneous generation in its grave. Redi and Pasteur had one thing in common: both scientists believed in the existence of God, and that life was created by Him. Over the course of the century, a number of scientists conducted experiments in favor of the chemical evolution hypothesis, or exerted great pains to support the claim with new theories. More than 30 years of experimentation on the origin of life in the fields of chemical and molecular evolution have led to a better perception of the immensity of the problem of the origin of life on Earth rather than to its solution.
Today the scientific community has demonstrated that non-living materials cannot self-organize through random events, and then join with other nonliving materials to form a perfect and highly complex living thing.
Today, the scientific community has demonstrated that non-living materials cannot self-organize through random events and then join with other non-living materials to form perfect and highly complex cells. A scientist performing extensive studies into these subjects is by no means a product of the common decision taken by unconscious atoms.
There are millions of living species on the earth, and these species differ from one another in a variety of ways. Anyone who reflects upon this question, employing the faculty of his reason, would see that all living things are designed, that is, created.
And among His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the living creatures that He has scattered through them: and He has power to gather them together when He wills.
Having recognized the reality of creation, scientists established various disciplines, such as biology, anatomy, and paleontology. It will be helpful to quote some of these scenarios, to demonstrate how evolu-tionists subject science to their wild fantasies. Carl Linnaeus, who believed that God created all living things, categorized forms of life under different classes for the first time,and was the founder of taxonomy.
Some of the reptiles in the colder regions began to develop a method of keeping their bodies warm. In order to substantiate this evolutionary hypothesis, it was necessary to scientifically prove impossible occurrences, such as the transition of sweat into milk, and scales into fur, causing thousands of scientists to waste their time trying to verify the claim. The claim that reptiles evolved into mammals is at definite odds with the discoveries of science. Science will continue to hopelessly pursue such myths, as long as scientists base their studies on incorrect hypotheses such as Darwinism. Bird feathers are completely different from reptile scales, and are equipped with extremely complex properties to enable birds to fly.
There is no point in claiming and trying to prove that these harmonies could have come about by chance. Evolutionists claim that the front legs of some dinosaurs transformed into wings as they chased flies.
Evolutionists tenaciously devised artificial mutation models, and worked for decades to observe a beneficial mutation.
Morgan, Goldschmidt, Muller, and other geneticists have subjected generations of fruit flies to extreme conditions of heat, cold, light, dark, and treatment by chemicals and radiation.
Renowned evolutionist, Gordon Taylor, also stated that 50 years were lost to mutation experiments. Mutation experiments carried out on fruit flies for decades did not produce even a single beneficial mutation.
Another example of the time-loss the evolutionary theory caused science is the blind alley paleontology was pushed into.
It must be mentioned that fossil excavations are carried out under very difficult conditions and require large budgets.
If someone went to the trouble of collecting into one room all the fossil remains so far discovered of our ancestors (and their biological relatives) who lived, say, between five and one million years ago, he would need only a couple of large trestle tables on which to spread them out. Palaeoanthropologists seem to make up for a lack of fossils with an excess of fury, and this must now be the only science in which it is still possible to become famous just by having an opinion. The complex make-up of DNA, with each of its properties having a specific purpose, demonstrates that DNA was created. Obviously, awareness of the fact that living things are created by God opens new avenues for science, as well as contributing to a better understanding of nature. However, materialist scientists, denying God's creative power, claim that all the life-forms in nature came about as a result of haphazard events. A person who is aware that God created all living things in a perfect form never supposes that there is an aberration in the design of an object of nature. Another misconception, adhered to by scientists who do not believe in the flawless creation of God, has again to do with honeybees.


The behavioral patterns of honeybees are so complex that scientists have been discovering the purposes of that behavior only recently. A team led by Jon Harrison, of Arizona State University, has published research findings in Science (1996, vol. All of these examples point to one fact: in order for scientific research to be effective and expeditious, it must be founded on a correct premise.
In fact, conducting extensive research and study of fallacious and inconclusive hypotheses, is also emotionally draining for evolutionist scientists. Some evolutionists in the scientific community have admitted to suffering such desperation. Question is: Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing that is true?
One of the reasons I started taking this anti-evolutionary view, or let's call it a non- evolutionary view, was last year I had a sudden realization for over twenty years I had thought I was working on evolution in some way. Obviously, a fallacious theory, if advocated purely for ideological reasons, also causes distress and desperation in its proponents. As evolutionists were unable to discover evidence in support of their theory, now and then, they deceived humanity by distorting their scientific findings and perpetrating hoaxes.
Piltdown was discovered in 1953 to have been nothing more than an Ape's jaw placed with a human skull.
Attempts to make observations, experiments and research concur with evolution, the covering-up of the truths, or their distorted presentation, has certainly been a serious impediment to scientific progress. The most interesting thing is that all the studies and experiments evolutionists make to prove evolution ultimately yield evidence that supports the fact of creation.
As mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, when science is guided by erroneous ideologies, time, money and labor are spent wastefully.
Moreover, every study and experiment made by evolutionists to prove evolution produced further evidence in support of creation. One of the most blatant examples of this is the paleontological findings of the Cambrian Period.
No matter how hard evolutionists try to prove the contrary, every scientific discovery points to the existence of God and the subtleties of His creation. For example the Cambrian strata of rocks, vintage about 600 million years, are the oldest ones in which we find most of the major invertebrate groups. The trilobite fossil of the Cambrian, and the intricate features of its compound eye, are evidence of creation.
Reading between the lines of the statements of some evolutionists reveals that every endeavor to seek scientific justification for evolution has proved unsuccessful, and failed to lead to any definite conclusions. The eye structure of the trilobite is as complex as that of the dragonfly living in our day. Our immediate surroundings, and the universe we live in, teem with numerous signs of the fact of creation. On the other hand, believing in a myth such as evolution, and adhering to it despite the findings of science, results in an emotional state of despair.
The feathers of a peacock, as well as countless other signs of creation in nature, continue to discomfit evolutionists.
In order for science to progress, these holdovers of the 19th century must be pushed aside, and free-thinking scientists bold enough to admit the facts they apprehend take their place. A bear gorging itself on pine nuts doesn’t think twice about my tiny little camera that just might be in its way, and more often than not I would show up to check a site and find my camera traps destroyed by the ravenous bears.
You have to be able to tell yourself that eventually it’s going to happen, and you have to have to perseverance to fix repeated problems while knowing that in all likelihood those problems are going to happen again. You do everything you can to make sure the camera box is securely positioned, that the animal will trigger the camera exactly where you expect it to, that the lighting you have meticulously placed to freeze the movement of feeding bears is perfect—only to find that either nothing had walked through it, a squirrel had chewed the cables, a dead branch had fallen and knocked over the camera box, or, as was happening most often, the traps had been destroyed by ravenous bears—and you didn’t get any pictures.
I’d tend to think that a mirrorless large-sensor camera using a fully electronic shutter should be sensitive enough to not need artificial lighting, and also virtually quiet — or are those too large to hide well? We finally get a chance to explore the world, find a deal, book a trip—and end up in the same places as every other traveler. They were explaining to me that as wonderful as Jordan was, we should really see Beirut, on the Mediterranean coast. Instead of creating a checklist based on the places that have received the most attention, seek out the destinations that seem to have been missed.
You’ll score insider information and the chance to create memories that aren’t formulaic or rote. The key is to open yourself up to the possibility—and intention—of doing things differently.
The stories and photos you’ll go home with will spur you forward to take the road less traveled again and again. They can help you with areas to avoid, which buses to take to get where you want to go and help with finding an hotel or B and B that is not a chain. What's more, one of these ancient fish had long, bony pectoral fins with leading edges serrated like saw blades.

Tuan Bendixsen said the land had been promised, possibly even sold or re-leased, to developers. They produce bile with the highest amount of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) – a chemical made naturally to protect the liver and prevent gallstones during the bears’ hibernation. The puncture wounds often become infected and after years of poor nutrition and filthy conditions, the bears require months of medical support when they get to Tam Dao.
Bear bile farming is illegal in Vietnam and the Moon bear is listed internationally as a critically endangered species, but this has not halted or even slowed the rampant trade. Tuan Bendixsen, the situation is intolerable and saving the bears has become his life work. Many of the older villagers in northern Vietnam say they have not seen bears in the wild for many years. Bendixsen says, the Prime Minister’s decision on the sanctuary means those bears still captive on farms in Vietnam will have somewhere to go when they are finally rescued. They have entered some of the worst places in China and have stood up for these bears when no one else would. Posters and commenters are required to observe National Geographic's community rules and other terms of service. To learn firsthand what's going on in and around this marine treasure of global importance, the National Geographic Society sent its top scientists and officials to the region in January 2016. Accordingly, in conducting such investigation, science will lead to various conclusions based on the information collected through observation and experimentation.
Correct identification of this source is critical, because, as we explained in the above example, an error in the identification of a source may cost the science-world years, decades, or even centuries.
God is the Creator of the universe, the world and of living things, and therefore, the most accurate and indisputable knowledge about these subjects derives from Him.
There is a certain purpose in the movements of stars and planets, in geographical landmarks, and in the properties of water or the atmosphere, that makes human life possible. An approach to science based on these facts will inevitably lead to remarkable progress and serve humanity in the most beneficial manner. But science can only be created by those who are thoroughly imbued with the aspiration toward truth and understanding. This materialistic outlook gradually made its way into the scientific community, and, beginning in the middle of the 19th century, a considerable portion of scientific investigation was initiated to support it. For decades, a great number of scientists have expended their best efforts to prove each of these claims, but the results always proved them wrong. Consequently, all research into astronomy and physics depended on the hypothesis that matter existed in infinite time. Based on certain computations by the Russian scientist, Alexandre Friedmann, LemaA®tre declared that the universe actually had a beginning, and that it was expanding since that initial moment. Firstly, American astronomer, Edwin Hubble, discovered with his huge telescope that the stars were moving away both from us and from each other.
However, he put the theory to rest, simply because his calculations did not concur with the widely recognized static universe model of his time.
Nevertheless, further scientific evidence was required in order for the theory to be widely accepted.
In 1965, two researchers by the name of Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson discovered the remnants of that radiation. Within minutes, the satellite's sensitive scanners confirmed the measurements of Penzias and Wilson. They witnessed the collapse of their extensive research, their hypotheses, and unsubstantiated theories, one after the other. I will therefore begin by confessing that the Stratonician atheist has to be embarrassed by the contemporary cosmological consensus. This explosion, called the Big Bang, demonstrated with compelling evidence that the universe was created from nothing, and permanently demolished the materialists' claims of an infinite universe. Since the initial cosmological singularity represents the terminus of all space-time trajectories, there cannot be any physical cause of the Big Bang. They argued that the entire equilibrium, harmony, and order in the universe was the work of chance.
According to this theory, order may spontaneously form from chaos, and a number of scientific studies were conducted to support the claim. Research conducted since the 1960s consistently demonstrated that all the physical equilibria in the universe are intricately designed to render life possible.
It is therefore certain that systems far more sophisticated and perfect than this in the universe were designed by God, Who has infinite knowledge and wisdom. However, as also stated in the above quotation, the inferior degree of scientific knowledge at that time did not allow them to substantiate the truths they perceived, and materialism, deriving support from the same primitive level of science, grew in authority in the scientific world. All such theories, formulae, studies in theoretical physics, mathematical equations, etc., eventually proved to be worthless attempts expended in vain.
Having been introduced to the agenda of scientific study a 140 years ago, this theory is actually the greatest fallacy perpetrated in the history of science.
The same theory further claims that organisms which have been formed by chance evolved into other creatures again by chance. The exploitation of thousands of scientists, and measureless amounts of money and resources, for an unprovable assertion, has certainly been a serious detriment for humanity. What distinguishes a bird, or a giraffe from a stone, water, earth, that is, inanimate matter?
For instance, it was thought that maggots which developed on uncovered meat arose spontaneously.
According to this view, it is impossible for living organisms to develop from non-living materials, and a life-form can arise only if it comes from another life-form.
The materialist philosophy has always argued that non-living materials can give rise to living organisms.
He causes the living to issue from the dead, and He is the One to cause the dead to issue from the living. Their belief played a critical role in their recognition of the absurdity of the idea of abiogenesis.
Their blind devotion to the materialist philosophy drew them into a futile struggle that would last a century.
Had the scientific community started out by recognizing that life is created by God, and that our Lord alone has the power to give life, all this wasted time, money and human resources, could have been avoided. It has also become obvious that the millions of life-forms we see around us could not have formed, as evolutionists claim, from cells that came together accidentally. And in the creation of yourselves and the fact that animals are scattered (through the earth), are signs for those of assured faith. We send down rain from the sky, and produce on the earth every kind of noble creature, in pairs. This endeavor caused scientists to engage themselves in a number of fruitless investigations.
Their heat output increased when it was cold and their heat loss was cut down when scales became smaller and more pointed, and evolved into fur. For instance, the day the baby needs potassium, is the same as the day the mother's milk is rich in potassium.
The real problem is that they waste the science-world's resources and time in the hope of proving these scenarios.
The acknowledgment of the reality of creation, on the other hand, will put an end to all these vain endeavors, which inhibit the progress of science.
This perfection could not have come into being haphazardly; it could only have come about through the power and control of our Lord, the supreme Creator. Evolutionists do not hesitate to produce such imaginary, and essentially, preposterous theories. Mutations are changes that take place in the genetic code of an organism through the effect of radiation or chemicals. Therefore, scientists were bent on proving that mutations could create beneficial effects on living things as far as the theory of evolution is concerned. All sorts of mutations, practically all trivial or positively deleterious, have been produced. This is only one of the hopeless attempts of evolutionists in their search for beneficial mutations. Two scientists who have been searching for evidence of evolution in the field of paleontology for years, having spent much of their lives to this end. There is no doubt that paleontological studies are essential to enlightening us about the history of life on the earth. Excavations conducted for the last 1,5 centuries, in regions such as African deserts, by crowded teams of researchers, maintaining camps for months under the scorching sun, and with budgets over billions of dollars, have not presented any concrete results. All around the world, thousands of universities, scientific institutions and organizations, millions of scientists, instructors and students, laboratories, technicians, technical equipment and numberless resources, have been consecrated to the service of a false allegation. A scientist who is aware of the existence of a design in nature embarks on his studies with the aim of investigating this design and its purpose. Dembski states that the evolutionary viewpoint, by denying the existence of a purpose in nature, holds back scientific progress. The 12 October 1996 issue of New Scientist contains a piece by Ben Crystall, where he maintains that honeybees beat their wings excessively, and therefore, their flight is inefficient. Wiedersheim, in 1895, comprised of approximately 100 organs, including the appendix and coccyx. When they come to understand that a majority of the research to which they have devoted their lives is futile and useless, they feel great despair. I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence… Then I woke up and realized that all my life I had been duped into taking evolutionism as revealed truth in some way. One morning I woke up and something had happened in the night and it struck me that I had been working on this stuff for twenty years and there was not one thing I knew about it.
Darwin repeatedly talked about his worries over this point in his letters to his friends or in his articles. Since the 18th century, science has been under the influence of materialists, and almost all research was intended to provide scientific evidence for the materialist philosophy. Science is relatively simple and trouble-free for those who believe in God's existence. This is the name given to the period which is estimated to date back 550 million years, and at which the first signs of life have been observed.
The complex forms of life that suddenly appeared in the Cambrian period are proof of this creation. And we find many of them already in an advanced state of evolution, the very first time they appear.


As we have repeatedly stated, evolutionist scientists have expended their best efforts for decades to find transitional forms (a supposed animal in between two different species) that will provide evidence of evolution. On the contrary, each study conducted by evolutionist scientists to confirm the notion that everything came into being through chance points to an irrepressible truth: the reality that all living things are created flawlessly by God, the Lord of the heavens and the earth.
Implicit in the fascinating system of a mosquito, the glorious artistry in the wings of a peacock, a complex and perfectly functioning organ like the eye, and millions of other forms of life, are signs of the existence of God, and His supreme knowledge and wisdom, for people who believe. The harmony in the universe and the design in living things becomes rather a great source of trouble to them. Turning a blind eye to such apparent miracles, they develop an ambivalence to such truths, accompanied by a mental state of denial.

The whitebark pines are, in turn, under threat by the mountain pine beetle, which destroys the trees. They’ll be happy to recommend a home stay in Croatia, or a guide they know well in Beijing. They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society.
In addition, however, every discipline of science also has certain norms that are simply taken for granted, or accepted without further verification.
In accordance, God has revealed to us important information about these matters in the Qur'an.
It follows that there is not a chaos of chance-happenings in nature or the universe, but a perfect order created with an intelligent design.
Denying that the universe was created, this view laid the groundwork for the materialist philosophy.
For some time, many scientists labored and toiled to no avail, as science was soon to shatter that misconception. He also asserted that it must be possible to detect the remnants of radiation from that initial moment. This meant that the universe was expanding, and thus, was not static as materialists assumed. Even a scientist considered the greatest genius of the century was intimidated by the dogmatism of the materialist view, having chosen not to reveal the important discovery.
In 1948, George Gamov proposed that, if the universe was formed in a sudden, cataclysmic explosion, as LemaA®tre had suggested, there ought to be a definite amount of radiation left over from that explosion, and that this radiation must be uniform throughout the universe. Rather, the cause must transcend physical space and time: it must be independent of the universe, and unimaginably powerful. However, the Big Bang theory, which Georges LemaA®tre developed, and which was based on divine sources, contributed to scientific progress and helped to uncover the true origin of the universe. This claim, which dominated the world of science beginning in the second half of the 19th century, dictated the subsequent course of scientific investigation. As research proceeded, it was discovered that each and every one of the laws of physics, chemistry, and biology, of the fundamental forces such as gravity and electromagnetism, and of the details of the structure of atoms and the elements of the universe, has been precisely tailored so that human beings may exist.
20th century science, however, has reversed that course, and provided conclusive evidence to prove that the universe was created by God. At center stage for the last one and a half centuries, has been the concerted effort to find scientific justification for this scenario, whose results though, ironically, proved only the contrary. Had these resources been properly directed, such a loss would not have been incurred, but great strides rather would have been achieved, and definitive results attained in more pertinent areas of scientific study. The first idea is that there is a very fine line between animate and inanimate matter, which can easily be pierced, and that life can spontaneously arise from inanimate matter.
The Greek philosophers believed that simple life-forms continuously arose from non-living matter. Redi showed, with the experiments he carried out in 1668, that the maggots that appeared on meat did not form spontaneously, but came from flies laying their eggs on it. Would such have been the case, science could concentrate on new discoveries and research useful to mankind, rather than seeking to prove Ancient Greek myths. Certainly, a rose, a peacock, a tiger, an ant, in other words, no living being, could have come into existence by the will of unconscious cells made up of the combination of unconscious atoms.
All these forms of life greatly differ from each other in their physical characteristics, habitats, hunting techniques, defense tactics, feeding habits, reproduction, and so on. God, with His unique creative power and infinite knowledge, equipped creatures with diverse features, and thus communicated His infinite power, wisdom and knowledge to humanity. In fossil excavations conducted all around the world, scientists looked for intermediate form fossils that had existed at no time in history.
Sweating was also an adaptation to regulate the body temperature, a device to cool the body when necessary by evaporation of water. This specialization is true for all the other materials the baby needs throughout its development. Evolutionists have no fossil evidence to prove this claim, just as they can put forth no logical mechanism to account for this transformation. Similarly, quite a few imaginary scenarios have been produced as to how dinosaurs evolved into birds. Therefore, it would be much more worthwhile to investigate verifiable realities and their details, rather than producing completely imaginary scenarios.
Though evolutionists claim that living things evolved through mutations, mutations are almost always harmful, and do not have an effect other than causing disorders in organisms. However, as we have explained above, mutations are always harmful, and have never been observed to have an evolutionary effect.
The erroneous preconceptions of the evolutionary theory, however, have had a negative effect on fossil research and misled scientists. The end result is literally nothing, and, moreover, new discoveries continue to expose the fallacy of the evolutionary hypothesis.
An evolutionist, however, would not have that objective, as he considers nature to be a purposeless collection of matter. Through the years, this flawed point of view has caused an improper interpretation of much scientific data, and prevented the discovery of numerous facts. Certain scientists, after calculating the angles formed by the honeybees to join the honeybee cells, determined that two angles formed by honeybees differed from the optimum angle by 0,020. According to this article, honeybees beat their wings sometimes rapidly and sometimes slowly, yet fly at the same speed, and therefore they waste energy when they beat frequently. 88) which suggest that there are good reasons for the differences in the wing-beat frequencies of honeybees. Scientists who do not believe in the creative attribute of God, caused a great deal of harmful confusion in the scientific study of these organs, which they assumed to be nonfunctional. With the advancement of science, the number of organs in Widersheim's list gradually decreased, and it was discovered that these organs had in fact very important functions in the body.
Therefore, the ultimate goal of a scientist investigating nature should be to discover the details of this perfection in all things, and explore the hidden purposes of every phenomenon he encounters.
When the subject comes up in public, feet start to shuffle, and breathing gets a bit labored. The fact that 500 books were written about a fraudulent skull is a glaring indication of effort expended for naught. Therefore, scientific evidence discounting the materialist philosophy was either covered up or presented in a distorted manner. Investigating a phenomenon known to exist, and looking for evidence for it, would cause no trouble for scientists. All of the life-forms that existed in this period were fully developed creatures possessing highly complex systems. Yet, they have never achieved any concrete results, because such creatures have never existed on the earth.
A scientist who maintains that creation is a fact views nature from this perspective, and derives great pleasure in every observation he makes, and every experiment he conducts, gaining inspiration for further studies.
A good case to this point is the prominent evolutionist Richard Dawkins, who goes so far as to call upon Christians not to assume that they have witnessed a miracle, even if they see the statue of the Virgin Mary waving to them. 1) Asking random neighbors (such as a couple in the lobby) provides absolutely no assurance that you’re getting competent advice. The complete Nat Geo collection consists of 7 DVDs containing every issue of the magazine between 1888 and 2011.This means that the collection includes more than 1,400 issues with more than 8,000 articles and 200,000 photographs.
Like some Late Cretaceous sea monsters, Protosphyraenamost likely went extinct 65 million years ago. We must help them raise awareness about what is happening with these bears, its surprising how little people know about it in the Western world. It was only possible with the placement of science on proper a foothold that Muslim scientists, who were then helping to forge the greatest civilizations in the world, contributed to major achievements in the 9th and 10th centuries. It was soon realized that this radiation was the echo of the Big Bang, still reverberating since the first moments of that great explosion.
Thomas contended could not be proved philosophically; namely, that the universe had a beginning.
Scientific evidence has demonstrated that evolution never took place, that the possibility of the gradual transformation from one species to another is out of the question, and that all living species were created distinctly and in their present forms. Moreover, imaginary scenarios were fabricated to explain how certain species could have evolved into each other.
But incidentally the young of these reptiles began to lick the sweat of the mother for nourishment.
Mother's milk is a substance specially regulated according to the needs of a baby, and it is moderated depending on each phase within a plan.
It is obviously impossible for such a nutriment to have formed by unconscious coincidences. In addition, scales develop, grow and are shed in a completely different way from that of fur. Their physical characteristics, feeding habits, hunting techniques, defense tactics, the way they foster their young etc., all reflect perfect harmonies.
Most importantly, research with such an intent would help us to better know God, the Almighty, Who created human beings and the entire universe from nothing. For instance, a materialist scientist examining a bird feather he discovered in nature decides, looking at the asymmetric structure of the feather, that it has a distorted form because it came about by chance.
As the temperature of the environment was changed, the bee's body temperature, the rate of its wing-beats, and its metabolic rate was measured. As science progressed, it was understood that these supposedly nonfunctional organs are actually vital for the human body. Carrying out long drawn-out experiments and observations in the laboratory, for a premise which they know will come to nothing, and only to discover that the direct opposite of the hypothesis they want to prove is correct, is certainly quite upsetting for such scientists. In private people are a bit more relaxed; many explicitly admit the obvious but then stare at the ground, shake their heads, and let it go like that. For decades, the knowledge, time, energy, work, laboratory, assistants and financial resources of thousands of scientists have been wasted in a bogus attempt to support the myth of evolution. For instance, an extinct creature called the trilobite possesses a complicated compound eye structure. In fact, if they are staying in a tourist-dominated hotel, they likely don’t have much experience with the open road. Furthermore, if scientists are overly obstinate about their hypothesis, the research may well last for years, and even for generations. In the West, the pioneers in all fields of science, from physics to chemistry, astronomy to biology and paleontology, were great men of science who believed in God, and who conducted research for the sake of exploring what He created. So long as the universe can be comfortably thought of as being not only without end but also without beginning, it remains easy to urge that its brute existence, and whatever are found to be its most fundamental features, should be accepted as the explanatory ultimates. This is the principle by which every detail in the universe has been carefully arranged to make human life possible.
Science journals published these scenarios, and eventually, these were taught to students in schools. Certain sweat glands began to secrete a richer and richer secretion, which eventually became milk. In the aftermath of this disaster, many people suffered illnesses such as leukemia, and serious disorders such as birth abnormalities.
The gradual decrease in evolutionists' long list of vestigial organs was the best indication of how flawed was this premise, that had impeded the progress of science. It was also discovered that the tonsils, which were included in the same list of vestigial organs, had a significant role in protecting the throat against infections, particularly until adolescence. Comprised of 100 lenses, this eye structure is the same as that of some modern insects such as the dragonfly. The collection also includes the classic maps which were published in the magazines throughout its history of 123 years.Users can also create lists with favorite articles, editions or photographs.
The French biologist Louis Pasteur finally demonstrated, through a series of experiments, that microbes could not develop from non-living materials either.
According to Oparin and Haldane, abiogenesis did not take place in a short time, but happened over a long period.
For a scientist who believes that God created every life-form for a specific purpose, and with a perfect design, however, the asymmetric pattern of a bird's feather is an important trait worthy of examination.
Scientists working on the subject came to the conclusion that honeybees were at fault by this minute fraction. Research revealed that honeybees beat their wings less frequently in hot weather, whereas they beat them more frequently in cold weather.
It was found that the coccyx, at the lower end of the vertebral column, supports the bones around the pelvis, and is the converging point of certain small muscles.
But note that old maps in much of the world are simply antiques…as are some of the directions you get online. In conflict with certain scientific laws, foremost among them, the Second Law of Thermodynamics, this claim led the science-world into a stalemate, contributing to a detrimental amount of lost of time.
Thus far, a great number of scientists have conducted research into how dinosaurs could have started to fly as they ran or jumped from tree branches, and spent years to show how scales turned into bird feathers. A scientist who begins with such a premise will soon see that the asymmetric form of bird feathers is necessary for flight, and that birds with symmetric feather forms are unable to fly. The Scottish mathematician Colin Maclaurin (1698-1746), not satisfied with this explanation, applied himself to a fresh and careful investigation of the question.
In the years to follow, it came to be understood that the thymus instigated the immune system in the human body by activating the T cells, that the pineal gland was in charge of the secretion of some important hormones, and the functions of many other supposedly non-functional organs were discovered. Well-known evolutionist and ornithologist, Alan Feduccia, is one of these scientists, who spent his life working on the subject. He showed that, owing to a slight misprint in the logarithmic tables, the result previously obtained was errant to the exact amount of two minutes of a degree.29 So, it was revealed that bees had calculated the optimum angle correctly, and not the scientists! They were keeping their body and hive warm with the energy output they generated by beating their wings more frequently in cold weather.
The semi-lunar fold in the eye, that was referred to as a vestigial organ by Darwin, is in fact in charge of cleansing and lubricating the eyebrow. Talking with strangers is fine, but again you must explore their honesty and their real knowledge before dashing off. Ultimately, it was revealed that wings of honeybees had a dual function: flying and generating heat. Be open to the journey…exactly…but the best way to get lost on purpose is to do as much homework on the areas you are going to visit BEFORE you leave.
