Why Are You?
Genesis 1:27
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

“Climategate” and the Creation-Evolution Controversy

In November, leaked files came to light - including more than 1,000 emails and nearly 3,000 documents - that provided abundant evidence of falsification of data among the scientists who are at the forefront of promoting the theory of global warming. Alleged guilty parties include Phillip Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and his assistant, Keith Briffa; Michael Mann at Pennsylvania State; Malcolm Hughes at the University of Arizona; Kevin Trenberth at the National Center for Atmospheric Research; James Hansen at NASA's Goddard Institute of Space Studies; and James Holdren, President Obama's new "Science Czar." The authenticity of the leaked emails and documents has been verified by Phillip Jones, Kevin Trenberth and others.

Now that global warming has been exposed as a politically motivated hoax supported by fraudulent science, Creation Moments would like to share three conclusions that are relevant to the discussion over creation and evolution.

First, "Climategate" reveals once again that scientists are more than willing to lie about the facts if it furthers their agenda. In the case of global warming, scientists at the University of East Anglia - along with their colleagues in the U.S. - falsified their data to "prove" global warming. Significantly, there is abundant evidence that evolutionary scientists are doing the very same thing. They routinely discard data that fails to support Darwinism. In fact, countless studies are stopped when they are seen to be heading in the "wrong" direction.

Second, the CRU scientists collaborated to prevent qualified scientists who disagreed with them from publishing or participating in the peer-review process. As one news source said, "The belief in Global Warming among scientists is not a consensus; it is a dictatorship." This is also a common practice in the creation-evolution area. Just ask any creation scientist how difficult it is to publish a paper in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Third, many scientists involved in global warming research have themselves been duped by the leaders of the global warming community. We wonder how those sincere scientists will respond now that global warming has been exposed as a hoax. Will they abandon this false science or just close their eyes to the truth? Well, if they are anything like evolutionary scientists, we suspect that they'll close their eyes. After all, they don't want to lose their government grants, their jobs, their tenure or their standing in the scientific and academic communities.

We also suspect that global warming advocates in the government and in the media will attempt to discredit "Climategate" and sweep it all under a rug. After all, to those who have a monetary and political interest in keeping global warming alive, facts are irrelevant ... just as they are for scientists who have a stake in Darwinism.

Those are our thoughts. What are yours?

I'm not surprised that data was falsified in this case. This is not the first time that so-called evidence supporting evolution has been either misinterpreted or falsified. But even though the frauds may have been exposed, you won't get an evolutionist to admit it. Twenty years from now, we could still be hearing about global warming if evolutionists have their way. After all, we're still hearing that the appendix is vestigial, even though medical science now admits the appendix has important bodily functions, including immune functions.

In the case of the appendix, science has finally caught up with the Bible, which says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. But you won't get an evolutionist to admit it.

By the way, the funding for "important" research on invented issues like "global warming" is sufficient motivation for researchers to lie. Another such "important" project is the large hadron collider, which is a particle accelerator built at great expense and effort to prove that mankind can uncover all the mysteries of nature himself. In short, it's there to prove that science, not God, is in over all things.

There is a much simpler, inexpensive way of exploring the laws of nature: seek out the God of creation, Jesus Christ. Read the Bible. It has all the clues to our beginnings and the answers to our future. Any science that doesn't begin and end with the Bible is a colossal waste of time, effort, and money.

Dear Sir,

Very interesting! Will we hear of this over the regular News anytime soon I wonder? Sadly, I am not surprised. Its like cheating on an exam in school; when someone has morals, no matter the end results, he does not cheat, even if asked. When people make up their own rules, what does cheating mean???

God has created this intricate, beautiful Earth with complicated systems which we can not measure, estimate or that we can even imagine that balance the ecosystem. One example is with higher CO2 content plant life will be more active. The oceans' ability to absorb CO2 also can increase with a higher atmospheric percentage.

I was resting on was Job 38: 8-11, (KJV of the Holy Bible)
8 "Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?"

Need I worry about man's rantings when God's word does not change!

Genesis 9:13-17 is also relevant,
13 "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth."

but...but.. they are scientists! How could they do anything wrong?!

Honest scientists can be hard to come by. If they aren't influenced by the need for acceptance in their field, they often fall prey to other factors, such as misinterpretation of data to fit the evolutionary mindset. Of course, the outright lying is commonly practiced, as it was in the case of Lucy, which not only was represented to have human attributes not present in the skeleton, but also wasn't even female.

Evolution is NOT a fact. The fact is, scientists presuppose that rock is unaffected by its surroundings and therefore can be dated accurately by a set of preconceptions. The fact is, as today's creation moment pointed out, rocks are like sponges, not like vaults. They do not conform to a mythical state that suits evolutionary ideas, but they actually are affected by their environment. They lose certain elements and gain others over time.

And no, it doesn't take millions of years.

The Galapagos Islands are the most incredible living museum of evolutionary changes, with a huge variety of exotic species (birds, land and sea animals, plants) and landscapes not seen anywhere else.

It is inappropriate to call small changes within a species evolution. Evolution refers to big changes, or macro-evolution, which is metamorphosis from one species into an entirely different species through random chance and phenomenally outrageous reliance on mathematically impossible luck.

Within a species you see a lot of variation. But that does not validate evolution. That simply shows that the Lord provided all living things with abundant life, each within their proper order of creation.

Just look at the human race. Individuals vary quite a lot within the species, but we are all one species. You cannot say, as evolutionists have, that the Asian peoples and African peoples of the world are different races, just because they have some different characteristics. Neither can you say, as evolutionists have, that the intellect of one "race" is higher than another. Individuals may be more intelligent than other individuals, but there is no physical and mental superiority between "races" of peoples.

Evolution never took place in the human race. We have always been human. And we're all equally human. We share the same DNA and the same heritage from Adam: dominion over the earth.

Evolution is often used as a misnomer for what is essentially varied characteristics within the same species. Be careful when you say the Galapagos Islands show evolutionary changes. All that you see there is God's hand working in majesty among his creatures, each within its own kind, multiplying and replenishing the earth.

Richard Dawkins - "Beware the Believers"

funny comedy

Yes, Richard Dawkins is usually the source of funny comedy.

Looks like our first thoughts on Climategate being swept under the rug is exactly what's happening. It is being ridiculed, called "a joke" and ignored by global warming enthusiasts. Things are no different in the area of creation-evolution. Creationists are ridiculed by some, ignored by many others. In our postmodern world, facts and truth no longer seem to matter to most people. Most people, that is, other than Christians.

Conveniently, something is a "fact" if it agrees with the secular agenda, and if it does not, it is dismissed as wrong. Secularists have no compunction about twisting reality to agree with their viewpoint.

Take, for example, how the history of this Christian nation has been rewritten to misrepresent it as a secular establishment. The Declaration of Independence is clear: our forefathers appealed to Jesus Christ, the Judge of Heaven and Earth, to liberate them from oppression by a despotic government. If you read historical documents, you will find that this nation was formed to protect us against secular controls on worshiping God. But you find the government pretending it's there to protect us against God. It's just the opposite. It's unscrupulous men who are our enemy, not the Lord.

In times past we have appealed to the Lord Almighty for divine guidance and protection. Where will we turn when all we have is government?
