If you've ever wished you could do something personally to join the battle against atheistic evolution, our new "Creation Action Moments" e-mail is here to help! Each week we'll give you one action item that's easy to do and takes only a minute or two.
In a Creation Moments program called "Gecko Tape," we talked about the amazing ability of the gecko to walk up walls and across the ceiling. The gecko can do this because it has tiny hairs, called setae, on its feet. These hairs are so tiny that they actually grip the molecules in the surface of the material upon which the gecko is walking.We also noted that researchers were trying to create a similar type of glue in the lab but had failed. Well, that changed last Thursday (October 9) when researchers reported they had successfully developed a new type of dry glue designed to mimic gecko feet.
Many people - especially those who believe in creation - resist watching science shows on PBS and the Discovery Channel, because these programs are usually saturated with unscientific claims favoring evolution. However, even Darwinian soapboxes like Nova can be worth watching, just as long as you do so with a discerning eye.
The first thing you have to do is separate the program's true science from its unfounded Darwinian musings. For example, when the narrator describes a creature as roaming the earth "60 million years ago," know that you have now left the world of science and are right in the heart of The Darwinist Zone. Such claims are pure conjecture, nothing more.
As scientists search for water and evidence of life on Mars, other scientists are plumbing the depths of the ocean to get to the bottom of the questions: how and where did life begin? According to a paper being published today in Nature, the seafloor – once considered to be a barren plain – is teeming with microbial life, leading scientists to believe that this may be where life first began.
