OoT Flying Tektite Glitch

Tektite

Lightning Fast Glass

When two boys stumbled on an unusual rock near Winans Lake, Michigan, they thought they had found what appeared to be at first glance a huge dinosaur leg bone. Scientists from the Museum of Palaeontology at the University of Michigan went out to investigate, only to find that the 15-footlong white, green, and grey object was the world's largest fulgurite, Latin for "thunderbolt." It is a tube shaped glob of glass that formed when a powerful lightning bolt struck the ground. The glassy tubes of lightning-fused rock are most common on mountaintops, probably because their high altitude attracts more lightning strikes. Although fulgurites might form from any type of rock, the largest have been created from unconsolidated (loose) sand.
For centuries, scientists have known that large lightning bolts, which can attain temperatures several times those on the surface of the Sun, can melt or vaporize rocks they strike. However, until recently, the chemical and physical processes in the formation of fulgurites were largely unknown. In addition, the studies revealed the presence of two metallic minerals that had never before been found to occur in nature. The fulgurite also was found to be one of the most chemically reduced (oxygen-removed) natural substances known on Earth.
Electron microscope analysis of metallic globules embedded in the fulgurite glass showed them to be composed of a variety of iron and silicon metal compounds previously known only to exist in meteorites. Apparently, the lightning bolt somehow chemically altered the original iron oxides in the ground, to an even greater extent than those found in most meteorites. The fulgurite was also enriched in gold, which the lightning apparently scavenged from the surrounding soil and concentrated in the glass.
A glass of a different sort is in the form of tektites; the name is derived from the Greek tektos, meaning "molten". They are glassy bodies created from the melt of a large meteorite impact. Over half the rock ejected by an impact remains molten in the rising plume and falls back to Earth as tektites. Much of the high-flying material is known to be deposited halfway around the world. Massive meteorite impacts dump millions of tons of tektites over vast areas called strewn fields.
Tektites range in colour from bottle-green to yellow-brown to black; they were once prized as ornaments by the Cro-Magnon, our ancient human ancestors. Tektites are usually small, about pebble-sized, although a few have been known to be as large as cobbles. Tektites are chemically distinct from meteorites and have a composition similar to that of the volcanic glass Obsidian but contain much less gas and water. They also lack microcrystals, a characteristic uncommon in any kind of volcanic glass.
Tektites comprise abundant silica similar to the pure quartz sands used to manufacture glass. Indeed, tektites appear to be natural glasses formed by the intense heat generated by a large meteorite impact. The impact flings molten material far and wide; while airborne, the liquid drops of rock solidify into various shapes from irregular to spherical, including ellipsoidal, barrel, pear, dumbbell, and button shapes. They also have distinct surface markings that apparently formed while solidifying during their flight through the air.
Mysterious glass fragments strewn over Egypt's Western Desert appear to be melts from a huge impact about 30 million years ago. Large, fist-size, clear glass fragments found scattered across the Libyan Desert were analysed for rare trace elements, which indicated that the glasses were produced by an impact into the desert sands. The large fragments of glass showed extraordinary clarity.
The impact force also generates extremely high temperatures that fuse sediment into small glassy spherules resembling volcanic glass. Thick deposits of sand-size spherules scattered throughout the world document the great meteorite bombardments during the Earth's entire history.

Stories About Copper Pipe Leak

Copper piping is a great strategy to run the water lines within your home. But what do you do when the piping fails to keep the water on the inside? The most widespread form of leak in copper piping is often a "pin-hole" leak. This form of leak might be repaired incredibly swiftly and very easily with some new innovations on the marketplace today.

Copper plumbing will be the most common material on the marketplace today. However it just isn't corrosion-proof; some water conditions can trigger oxidation, corrosion, pitting, and eventually, pinhole leaks.

Having your water tested can support to pin down the problem, and might offer a resolution much easier then repiping your complete home.

If you discover your water acidic, or a pH level of below 7, your pinhole leaks might be trigger by acidic erosion within the pipes. Any lower can trigger harm to your pipes. If you uncover your pH levels to be too high, you are able to correct it with an acidic water filtration system. These work by filtering the water via natural minerals which will cancel out a few of the acidity of the water.

The greatest thing to come along for very a while for the do it your self marketplace will be the push sort fitting that fits any CTS (copper tube size) tubing. It does not matter if the piping is copper, cpvc, poly, pex, or whatever. Just so it can be standard CTS size around. These fittings come in quite a few forms, configurations, and name brands. A couple of probably the most frequent brands would be Sharkbite, Tektite, Cash-Acme, and Watts. I have tried them all and they do all work well, so don't be so concerned with the brands as the availability.

Other water balance issues can also be fixed by water filtration systems and adding particular minerals to your water sources. Once the cause is fixed, along with the repiping procedure has begun, there are some other issues you may do to aid stop the difficulty from reoccurring.

Now to repair a leak all you need to do is identify the source of the leak. Some occasions it might be a very slow drip which can run along the pipe for a space prior to dripping off of the pipe. Do not assume that the spot of the drip will be the spot of the leak. Hold up a piece of paper or cardboard and watch exactly where and how the water is hitting it. That will support you trace the spray back towards the hole in the pipe.

I would recommend you read additional research about Copper Pipe Leak as well as How To Fix A Copper Pipe Leak.

The geologic column is very important to evolution but ...?

quoting Jonathan A. Drake in TrueAuthority.com " According to evolutionary teaching, the "Geologic Column" is a map of evolutionary history. Supposedly all fossils fit into a specific order, simple to complex. However, some flaws are to be found. Recently, fish scales were found in the "Cambrian layer" when according to the "column", fish did not appear until much later. All over the world can be found layer-transversing fossils. A typical specimen is a tree running vertical through thousands of layers. Possible explanation: Those layers weren't laid down over billions of years, unless ancient trees had the capability to grow through solid rock, void of all sunlight. Lest the reader even consider such a wild notion, or one like it, some of these trees are found up-side-down. Indeed, they spell nothing but sudden catastrophe.

How does that fit in evolution?

Jonathan A. Drake is a well-known liar and TrueAuthority.com promotes misinformation, anti-science, and out right lies while still trying to appear scientific. Of course they fail miserably but they still get a large number of young visitors who lack enough science background to know when their being played as suckers.

Anyone interested in discovering what we really know avoids sites like TrueAuthority.com like the plague.

Concerning the "a tree running vertical through thousands of layers," this is a standard creationist canard (one of Hovind's foolish favorites) often seen and often debunked, yet continually misunderstood by those naive enough to believe that centuries of research in geology, biology, astronomy, physics, and chemistry didn't solved this ridiculous notion long ago.

Trilobite fossils go back further than the dinosaurs

Trilobite fossils are desirable collector's items due to their age, diversity, and primeval appearance. They can be traced all of the way back to the Cambrian Period over 500 million years ago and lasted in their numerous forms till the end of the Permian Period approximately 250 million years ago. There are ten different trilobite orders, every one making fascinating fossils fit for any collection and every one offering a unique and distinctive feature like antennae or eyes.

The trilobites themselves were extraordinary, hard-shelled predators of the Earth's traditional seas. They went extinct before dinosaurs even came into the world. Trilobites were among the earliest complex life forms that helped establish the basis of life as it is today. Though dinosaurs are the most well known fossil animals, trilobites are also a fave among those familiar with the development of life on The planet.

One of the general attracts of fossils is their age; folks often get excited from owning something that was once alive many millions of years ago. Trilobites are old, well-known fossils and are found on all continents due to their longevity. The UK, Russia, the US, Germany, China, and other nations all have trilobite deposits somewhere inside their borders. The far-reaching nature of trilobite fossils leads to bigger availability of fossils for sale than may be found with fossils that can only really be found in 1 or 2 locations.

An upside of trilobites is the huge variety represented by these fossils. There were ten orders of trilobite that branched out into 20,000 different species, each one present for many millions of years. More variety means more sorts of trilobite fossils for sale and different types of trilobites for folks to collect. Given the aptitude for feature variety even inside a trilobite species, the collecting chances are just about unending. Trilobites also change in appearance, ranging from tiny and relatively smooth to half a foot long with antennae and complex eyes.

The straightforward yet frequently complicated appearance of trilobites makes them fascinating collector's objects in assorted forms. One of the most well liked types of trilobite collecting is to get a trilobite partially inserted in rock and to have an expert carefully remove excess rock and dirt with air-abrasion methodologies. Many trilobite fossils are available for sale displayed in rock blocks or as a part of a sculpture. Fully-removed trilobites are also sold, although most of these are the easier kind as removing a rather more complicated trilobite with antennae can lead to specimen damage. Some trilobites can also be sawed in slices or polished smooth and worn as a necklace or brooch. The trilobite shape is so fascinating that some of the people even make trilobite molds and pour silver, gold, bronze, or another metal inside the mold to make talismans.

Touchstone Gallery of Arizona and New Mexico has a large variety of trilobite fossils for sale. Many of those are top quality fossils revealed in Russia, the Western US and Morocco. These excellent trilobite examples are ensconced in beautiful display rocks meant to showcase these engaging fossils. Touchstone's trilobites epitomize the company point of offering fantastic merchandise at fair costs in a completely unique and fun atmosphere. Any person interested in buying trilobite fossils from the Touchstone Gallery should visit one of the physical locations in Sedona, Scottsdale, Taos and Santa Fe or contact the Touchstone Gallery through www.touchstone-gallery.net for more information.

Ukrainian Asteroid Impact Craters could be part of explaining Dinosaur extinction around 65 millions of years ago

 

Ukrainian Asteroid Impact Craters could be part of explaining Dinosaur extinction around 65 millions of years ago.

Several impact craters are found in Ukraine, however their age ranges from 350 to 65 million years old. So these craters are evidence of older asteroid impacts hitting the earth long time ago. However, these craters plays an important role in understanding the frequencies of asteroid impacts to earth, as well as understanding the critical K/T boundary and associated layers in our geological history.

At least two of the identified impact craters in Ukraine seem to be linked to the age of mass extinction on earth happened around 65 million years ago. This is the age of the K/T boundary found around the world as well.

We will now discuss some of the craters, and begins with the best described of them, the Boltysh Impact Crater.

The Boltysh Crater is an impact crater in the Kirovohrad Oblast province of Ukraine.

The crater is 24 km in diameter and its age of 65.17 ± 0.64 million years, based on argon dating techniques, is within error of that of Chicxulub Crater in Mexico, and the KT boundary. The Chicxulub impact is believed to have caused the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous era, which included the extinction of the dinosaurs.

As well as Boltysh, several other impact craters around the world have estimated ages of about 65 million years, leading to the suggestion that the Earth was struck by multiple asteroid impacts at that time. The collision of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter in 1994 showed that such multiple impacts over a few days are possible.

Boltysh Crater is located in central Ukraine, in the basin of the Tiasmyn River, a tributary of the Dnieper River. It is 24 km in diameter, and is surrounded by an eject blanket of breccia preserved over an area of 6500 km². It is estimated that immediately after the impact, ejecta covered an area of 25,000 km² to a depth of 1 m or greater, and was some 600 m deep at the crater rim. The crater is not visible on satellite pictures as it is part of agricultural land today and covered with sediments.

The crater contains a central uplift about 6 km in diameter, rising about 550 m above the base level of the crater. This uplift currently lies beneath about 500 m of sediment deposited since the impact, and was discovered in the 1960s during oil exploration.

When first identified, the age of the crater could only be roughly constrained between the age of the impacted rocks (the target) and the age of overlying sediments. The target rocks date from the Cenomanian (98.9 to 93.5 million years ago) and Turonian (93.5 to 89 million years ago) epochs. Bore samples of sediments overlying the crater contain fossils dating from the Paleocene epoch, 65 to 54.8 million years ago. The age of the crater was thus constrained to between 54.8 and 98.9 million years.

Subsequent radiometric dating reduced the uncertainty. The concentration of uranium-238 decay products in impact glasses from the crater were used to derive an age of 65.04 ± 1.10 million years. Analysis of argon radioactive decay products yielded an age of 65.17 ± 0.64 million years. These ages are similar to that of Chicxulub Crater.

Although the ages derived for Chicxulub and Boltysh are the same to within their statistical errors, it does not necessarily follow that they formed at exactly the same time. At the estimated rate of impacts on the Earth, it would not be extremely unusual for a Boltysh-sized crater to be formed within half a million years of Chicxulub. The dating of these impact craters is not yet accurate enough to establish whether the asteroids arrived thousands of years apart, perhaps as part of a generally elevated rate of impacts at that time, or were almost simultaneous, like the impacts of the fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter in 1994.

The discovery of the unconfirmed Silverpit crater and the early report of its age as 65 – 60 million years initially gave greater weight to the hypothesis that the Earth was struck by multiple asteroids at this time, however, the age estimate has now been broadened to 74 – 45 million years.

The controversial Shiva crater is claimed to have formed around the same time, but its status as an impact crater is disputed.

CEPSAR
One hundred and two core boxes containing over 400m of core from the Bolytsh impact crater in the Ukraine have arrived in Aberdeen as part of the NERC funded project into the environmental effects that resulted from this 65 million year old impact crater. CEPSAR scientists Dr Jon Watson, Prof. Simon Kelley and Dr Iain Gilmour joined their
University of Aberdeen colleague Dave Jolley for an exciting day doing an initial sampling of the core. Core recovery is over 95% providing the team with a near complete geological record starting from the impact rocks of the crater floor through nearly 400m of sediments from the lake that filled the crater after the impact.

The initial sampling comprised some 200 samples that will form part of the detailed geochemical and palynological examination that the team will be undertaking in the coming months. The project is examining the possibility for several impacts at the 65 million year old Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary and their separate and combined consequences for life on Earth at the time.

Another impact crater north of the Bolytsh impact crater is the Rotmistrovka crater with a diameter of approximately 2.7 kilometers and is assumed to be of 120 +/- 10 million years old. So this crater is of a much older date and is not part of the potential mass extinction multiple impact scenario around 65 million years ago which Bolytsh impact crater seems to belong to.

Seleny Gai impact crater just south of the Bolytsh crater is of 80 million +/- 20 million years old, so it could be part of the multiple impact event where Bolytsh belongs.

Ilyinets impact crater with a diameter of 8.5 kilometers and an age of 378 +/- 5 million years is located some 230 kilometers west of Bolytsch crater. This crater is not exposed to surface today.

Around 70 kilometers north of Ilyinets crater we find the Zapadnaya Impact Crater with a diameter of 3.2 kilomters. The age of this crater is estimated to 165 +/- million years. Also this crater is not exposed to the surface today.

If you have further interest in knowing more about impact craters around the world, The Earth Impact Database could be a good place for you to start learning more about where these are.

How is a falling meteorite the "time -reversal" of a fired object?

(1) An object is fired vertically upward from the Earth with an initial speed that is less than the escape speed. (2) A meteorite falls towards the Earth; at a certain height, the meteorite is at rest with respect to the Earth. Question: how is (2) the "time reversal" of (1)? Why can we use the same equation for both questions by reversing Vf to Vi? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

It isn't. The effects of atmosphere aren't symmetric. The meteorite is never at rest with respect to earth until it lands. If you could ignore the atmosphere, each is an object with a specific position and velocity, acted on by earth's gravitational field.

Meteorites - Facts Vs Myths

A meteorite is an object naturally formed and originating in outer space that outlives crashing on the surface of the Earth. Meteorites are most always different shapes and sizes, varying from big to little. There are numerous meteorites derived from petite astronomic objects called meteoroids, but the majority of the time they're produced from hits of other asteroids. When a meteoroid enters the earth's atmosphere or in the earth's gravitational orbit, ram pressure causes that object to catch fire thanks to the attractive force of the earth's gravitational pull. At that point, meteorites begin radiating light as it forms a " fireball" because of the fire on its outer surface. This type of meteor is known as falling star.

Meteorites that are noted and recovered as they impacted the Earth are called falls. All of the other meteorites are referred to as finds. As delimited in the report of Feb 2010, there are nearly 1,086 experienced falls, existing in the world's collections. In direct contrast, there could be over 38,660 documented meteorite finds.

Meteorites are ordinarily broken up into three major classes: (1) stony meteorites composed from rocky and hard materials; (2) iron meteorites composed from metallic iron and once in a while a small amount of nickel and also; (3) stony-iron meteorites comprise both metallic and rocky material. Modern categorisation schemes divide meteorites into groupings according to their structure, attributes, chemical properties, isotopic composition and mineralogy. Almost all of the meteorites are in hard meteorites class and about 6% of the falling meteorites are in the iron and stony-iron category.

Nearly all of the meteoroids break into little lumps when enter into the earth's atmosphere. It is appraised that about 5 hundred meteoroids strike the earth's surface each and every year - having different sizes that vary from the sizing of marbles to soccer balls or possibly bigger - with not many of these being documented as recovered. There have been a small number of meteorites that have been so huge and of such size, that striking the outer level of the earth, with their terminal speed, form pits on the surface of earth and can once in a while damage public property which could result in injury or loss of life.

Dr. H.H. (Harvey Harlow) Nininger started a system for the search of meteorites in the great plains of the States in the late 1920's to 1950's. He travelled in the chosen area and educated the local folks about the characteristics of the meteorites, identification and what to do if somebody found it. The technique was very successful and this enabled him to discover more than two hundred new meteorites. The majority of freshly discovered meteorites were of the stony type. In the latter 1960s, Roosevelt County , New Mexico in the Great Plains region was selected for finding new meteorites. One hundred forty (140) meteorites have been found in the region since 1967. Intriguingly, several meteorites were found in Antarctica between 1912 and 1964. This discovery has impassioned the search to find more meteorites in Antarctica. In 1969, the Tenth Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition found some meteorites in Antarctica. Another Japanese Antarctica expedition was first launched in 1974 for the search of more meteorites with great success. This team succeeded to recover about 700 meteorites while there. One or two dozen meteorites have also been found in the Nullarbor area of Western and Southern Australia before 1971.

Amber Jewellery; A Guide To Why And How It Is Used In Jewellery

 

Amber is a fascinating substance. It is commonly regarded as a gemstone but unlike most others it does not have a mineral origin. Deposits of resin from certain pine trees were fossilized at the bottom of the sea for millions of years creating amber. It is known for its many inclusions that ensure each piece is unique. The inclusions are generally small pieces of plant or insect matter that fossilized within the resin. Due to this amazing preservation technique archaeologists have come to regard amber as a window into biological history.

 

Mining Amber

 

Amber is collected in two main ways. In certain areas, notably around the Baltic sea, it washes up onto the shore. Amber gathering has taken any number of opportunistic forms over the years including diving for amber or collecting it on horse back with long poles and nets in the marshy areas. Collecting amber used to be an important source of revenue for villagers, a traditional cottage industry. Nowadays industrial mining of large deposits has become the staple source of amber.

Most of the amber in the world is to be found in the Baltic regions around Russia and Poland.   

 

Uses of Amber

 

The human history of amber appears to span back an exceptionally long way. There is evidence from as far back as 8000 B.C. suggesting amber has been treasured by humans. Amber items from antiquity have been found as far spread as ancient South America, the North Pole, in Tutankhamen's tomb and one of the earliest pieces in Great Briton was found in a Celtic burial mound dating from 1200 B.C..

Amber has been a highly desired product for as long as it has been known. The trade routes along which amber was transported, known as the 'amber roads,' were always fiercely contested and protected in antiquity as they guaranteed prosperity to those in control of them. Amber was known as 'northern gold'. The Roman historian Pliny wrote that a small amount of amber was more valuable that a male slave in his prime. Nowadays it is the rarer forms of amber that have the greater price tag.

Amber is mythically associated with safety and continuity. One of the continuing uses over the years has been in the form of talismans and amulets meant to provide safety for the wearer. In India and other countries necklaces of amber are placed around children's necks to protect them from kidnap. When rubbed with a cloth amber has electrical properties; possibly why many cultures have associated it with providing healing energy. It is considered a good stone to give as a present to family members as it is thought to strengthen bonds and help with overcoming obstacles.

 

Amber Jewellery 

 

Golden orange tones are commonly associated with amber. But it is also possible to get rarer forms that are highly desired, including opaque or even blue amber. These types are considerably more expensive. Modern technology allows us to heat treat amber which means that it is widely available in a myriad of colours including yellows, greens and oranges.

 

Today there is a thriving jewellery industry based around amber products. Although only about 20% of all mined amber is suitable for use in jewellery. Commonly it is set into silver, but there are now luxurious gold and amber products available as well. Due to its unique qualities and range of natural and beautiful colours it remains as popular today as it ever has been.

How can I get easy amber and amber matrixes on Oblivion for the PS3?

I want to make amber armor and weapons in the Shivering Isles. Are there any specific locations where you can find amber and amber matrixes?

Well, Amber can be found primarily in root tunnels and on Gnarls.

Specifically, in root tunnels, look for things that look like fireflies moving around. If you see one, there should be a amber vein somewhere near by (in a branch on the wall or a stump on the ground) I've found as many of 3 portions of Amber in a single deposit. Hollowed out Tree Stumps (these things shoot out gas and make a noise) can also have amber, but they aren't as dependable.

Matrices are more rare, and they only show up in random loot. There isn't any one place that's guaranteed to have one. However, matrices aren't necessary, and you are probably better off enchanting your armor yourself. That way, you can suit the armor to your playstyle.

Perfume is used to give the human body, animals, objects and living spaces a pleasant smell or fragrance. It is a composition of fragrant essential oils, aroma compounds, fixatives and solvents. Colognes have been commercialized and for women it is considered the as epitome of elegance. The fragrance of a beautiful woman is a definite embodiment of her womanliness.

Composition

Some very famous commercial womens perfumes are made by names like Chanel, Estee Lauder, Guerlain, Thierry Mugler or Lanvin. True perfumes contain a greater amount of perfume oils and are more expensive than colognes and toilet waters. Most perfumes consist of 10 to 20 percent perfume oils dissolved in alcohol.

Depending largely on its intended use is what determines the composition of a perfume. Rare flower oils from many parts of the world are what most expensive body perfumes consist of. Coming from low-cost materials are perfumes used is soap making. Blends of flower and plant oils, animal substances, synthetics, alcohol and water makeup many perfumes.

Classic Fragrances

Some of the classic fragrances by Chanel are Chance, No. 5 and Allure. Besides that, there are featured celebrity perfumes like Unforgivable Woman Black by Sean John, Spirit by Antonio Banderas and Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears.

Many of these popular perfumes are sold by the big houses and are priced between $100 and $200 an ounce. Of course there are special offers available for other brands during special seasons, but the true connoisseur of colognes will always buy her brand, because it has become a part of her personality.

The Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel is a 100ml Eau de Spray. It was launched in 2001 and can truly be classified as a feminine and sexy fragrance. The fragrance is light and the various fragrances that are available are mandarin, orange blossom, baroque flowers, Bulgarian rose, Indian jasmine and Tonka bean. The Chanel No. 5 is one of the oldest formulas of Chanel, launched in 1921. From that time until today it is considered one of the most feminine and yet modern floral fragrances. The fragrance notes include ylang-ylang, amber, iris, patchouli, neroli, grasse jasmine, may rose, sandalwood and vanilla.

The Euphoria by Calvin Klein has an equally enticing fragrance. It has a flowery fragrance and can be classified as modern, sophisticated and feminine. The various flower fragrances in which Euphoria is available are black violet, pomegranate, black orchid, mahogany wood, persimmon and lotus blossom.

The perfume launched by Viktor & Rolf called Flowerbomb also has a woody fresh fragrance and is known for its Asian influences. Asian favorites like patchouli, jasmine, freesia and bergamot are some of the fragrance notes used. DKNY Be Delicious is another sensual scent that is created by Donna Karan.  It is definitely an exotic fragrance that is refreshing, fresh, sophisticated and crisp. Grapefruit, cucumber, apple and magnolia are the fragrances used, which are very much different from the other perfumes mentioned.

Whether Gucci, Armani, Christian Dior or even a less well-known maker makes it, a woman's own special fragrance lends her grace, style and elegance. It matches the flavor of her dress, the occasion and the personality of the person who uses it.

The Global Darwinist dictatorship must apologize to the entire world; • For CONCEALING FOSSILS unearthed from below the ground, • For keeping 100 MILLION FOSSILS, that have remained unchanged for millions of years, hidden away from the public eye, • For never admitting they have NOT EVEN A SINGLE INTERMEDIATE FORM FOSSIL, • For concealing for years the fact that IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR PROTEINS TO FORM BY CHANCE, • For FABRICATING FAKE SKULLS and producing them as evidence of the imaginary evolution of man, • For portraying the Piltdown Man hoax, MADE BY ADDING AN ORANGUTAN JAW TO A HUMAN CRANIUM and filing down its teeth, as an intermediate form and for deceiving people by exhibiting it in a museum as alleged evidence of evolution for the next 40 years, • For inventing the hoax intermediate Nebraska Man FROM A SINGLE WILD PIG TOOTH, producing false reconstructions to give people the impression that such a being had ever existed, and deceiving them still further BY PRODUCING PICTURES OF THIS NON-EXISTENT ENTITY’S WHOLE FAMILY, • For the way they for years depicted Haeckel’s FORGED EMBRYO DRAWINGS, produced with the aim of proving the lie that human embryos possess gills, as evidence for evolution, • For the way they are still displaying THE SEQUENCE FOR THE EVOLUTION OF THE HORSE, WHICH EVEN THEY ADMIT TO BE FALSE, in museums, • For dishonestly depicting moths THEY GLUED ONTO TREE TRUNKS as “industrial revolution moths that had evolved by way of natural selection,” • For depicting the Coelacanth, WHICH STILL LIVES IN DEEP SEA WATERS TODAY, as an intermediate form, • For CONCEALING fossils of complex life forms dating back to the Cambrian Period FOR NO LESS THAN 70 YEARS, out of concern these would totally discredit evolution, • For ADDING FEATHERS TO FOSSIL DINOSAURS and trying to pass this off as an intermediate form when they were unable to find any genuine intermediate form fossils to prove Darwinism, • For persisting in the FRAUD THAT LIFE FORMS GRADUALLY EVOLVED FROM THE PRIMITIVE TO THE MORE ADVANCED, even though they know perfectly well that the first organisms with characteristics of a similar complexity to those of present-day life forms appeared suddenly and simultaneously in the Cambrian Period, some 530 million years ago, • For portraying mutation experiments as evidence for evolution, despite knowing full well that mutations do nothing but harm organisms, and for years reiterating THE LIE THAT MUTATIONS LEAD TO EVOLUTION, • And for so long teaching students in all schools and universities the deception that “chance causes evolution” AS A SCIENTIFIC FACT. In short, the Global Darwinist dictatorship MUST APOLOGIZE FOR DECEIVING THE WHOLE WORLD WITH THESE BLATANT UNTRUTHS FOR THE LAST 150 YEARS. Beside all these Darwinist falsehoods, there are many professors around the world removed from their posts, as dictated by Darwinist imposition, just because they espouse the fact of Creation. Most recently, Michael Reiss, director of education of the Royal Society, was swiftly removed from his post in the wake of his suggestionthat Creation also be taught in schools. PROFESSORS AND ACADEMIC STAFF WHO HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THEIR POSTS because they espouse Creationism SHOULD BE RESTORED TO OFFICE. STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN FORCED TO LEAVE SCHOOL AND END THEIR EDUCATION because they answered “I do not accept this claim” when asked about Darwinism in exams SHOULD BE RETURNED TO THEIR SCHOOLS. The fossil record is perhaps the most important evidence that demolishes the theory of evolution's claims. Fossils reveal that life forms on Earth have never undergone even the slightest change and have never developed into one another. Examining the fossil record, we see that living things are exactly the same today as they were hundreds of millions of years ago—in other words, that they never underwent evolution. Even during the most ancient periods, life forms emerged suddenly with all their complex structures–with the perfect and superior features, just as do their counterparts today. This demonstrates one indisputable fact: Living things did not come into being through the imaginary processes of evolution. All the living things that have ever existed on Earth were created by God. This fact of creation is once again revealed in the traces left behind them by flawless living things. This book will provide you with not only such information as what fossils are and where and how they are found, but also a closer examination of a variety of fossil specimens, millions of years old, that are still able to declare, "We never underwent evolution; we were created." The fossils discussed and illustrated in this book are just a few examples of the hundreds of millions of specimens that prove the fact of creation. And even these few are enough to prove that the theory of evolution is a major hoax and deception in the history of science.

Please answer this question on Fossils in Science for best answer selection. Thanks!

If you have the actual tooth (direct evidence), then by process of elimination it has to be petrified. All the others are indirect evidence of a tooth.

New Age Teething

It may perhaps seem like newborns have no teeth at all, but those pearly whites are already producing beneath the gums. Discount dental care early in life can support prevent oral illness later on, both by building great habits and by maintaining the top quality of their teeth.

Teething

Today, more than ever, mother and father are trying to find all-natural methods to care for their infants children as opposed to reaching for over the counter or prescription drugs.

For thousands of years, Baltic Amber has been recognized for its amazing healing properties and analgesic pain relief. Completely non toxic, normal amber also supports the immune system which is particularly important for infants and children when their young bodies are nonetheless in development. So how does amber present such outstanding relief? We're glad you asked that question!

They begin to erupt at six months, and generally the baby will have a full set of primary tooth by age 3. Parents can take many steps to ease the discomfort of their baby all through this time.

Over 45 million many years ago, an organic substance referred to as "fossil resin" was produced by special pine trees in a very significant forest in Northern Europe. When the temperatures inside forest went from cold to very much warmer, the trees exuded a "sap" or "resin" which grew to become portion of the earth around them. The therapeutic attributes of Baltic amber are attributed to its major ingredient, Succinic acid, that is mostly located inside the surface layer from the amber, and is an exceptionally effective therapeutic recovery agent. So how does amber achieve its role as the key normal solution to relieving teething pain in infants and toddlers?

In order for Baltic amber to carry out its analgesic function, amber artisans created amber teething jewelry that might be worn comfortably and safely against the child's skin. When the pores and skin warms the amber, it begins to exude its healing properties supplying not only discomfort relief but a calming effect. The relief will final for lengthy periods of time so it is possible to eliminate the necklace when your infant is sleeping or unattended. The necklaces fasten with a screw clasp and strung by hand with unique knots in between each and each amber bead so if the necklace should break, the rest of the beads will not scatter.

  • To sooth tender gums, parents can gently rub the gum line that has a clean finger or a cool, damp cloth. Many stores sell low cost teething rings for babies to chew on, some of which might be placed inside refrigerator or freezer and given towards the youngster to cool or numb the mouth. Some dentists recommend a topical gel to gently numb the area.
  • Children should not be exposed to toothpaste until they're about 2 decades old, due to the fact some ingredients might be harmful if swallowed. In the meantime, however, dad and mom may possibly wish to gently brush the baby's tooth having a soft-bristled toothbrush and some water.
  • Just like a conscientious parent have to take action, you will find also instances to leave things alone for the excellent of one's infant. For example, eruption cysts, watery sacs that develop when teething, are typically harmless. They'll eventually erupt as the tooth emerges from the gum line.

If you decided the information is inspiring you should also wish to be topics about Teething 3 Months as well as Baby Teething Chart.

ABOUT Shark Teeth

Shark Teeth
Where can I find shark teeth in South Carolina?

I try to find more places to find shark teeth in the lower region of South Carolina. I know a place, Cosgrove Bride. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hello, This is about fair chance to find one, but the best time to find them after hurricanes and strong storms along the coast. Go early in the morning before all the crowds to watch. Also, if you plan to travel in North Carolina, go to Harkers Island (about 1.5 hours north of Wilmington), then take the ferry to Cape Lookout and you can get lucky there. Happy hunting!

Shark information

Experts say sharks have occurred during the time of the Jurassic period when pterosaurs corrected in the sky and the first birds barely rose in the air. On the ground, then the huge Brachiosaurus eat foliage, wandering predators Allosaurus, and in seas ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs and crocodiles Mesozoic corrected. And yet, something lived in this world that was an incentive for accident modern sharks.

Nobody can say with confidence that the animals developed shark - until recently was considered that all modern sharks have occurred in the group known as Hybodus.

Hybodus, reaching a length of 2.7 to 3 feet, lived in shallow seas 180млн nearby. Years ago. Without doubt they are very similar to those ancestors of sharks, with a dull brain is well developed skeleton allocated with a rear spoiler and two kinds of teeth, canines and teeth grinding. It is assumed that even Hybodus is the direct ancestor of modern bull shark rather to remind him about the appearance.

But paleontologists today, being based on extensive research fossil and modern sharks, consider this act as Hybodus the form of guarantees of evolution spark, without representing a being from which all modern sharks have developed. Only time and further research may shed light on the sources of dark modern sharks.

The Sharks first known modern type - Mcmurdodus type known from the middle of the adjournment of the Devonian (about 390 million years). At first glance, it seems that sharks have developed modern forms too quickly, but is valid, the same version is similar to the truth. The assumption is tempting as the origin of modern sharks have been affected by the radiation that has occurred in the early Devonian.

However Mcmurdodus exact influence on modern sharks is not known, and many ancient sharks, hence there were only hardened teeth. In general, they are very close teeth of modern bull shark, similarity, however, similar may occur due to the development of similar bodies, instead of the evolving relationship.

The first shark, driven at first, and other predators. But in the middle of a chalk, they developed an entirely new way extract livelihoods - quickly rush to animals and breaking them. Most likely it was the response to the appearance new types of fish faster and squid. Other predators - large, slow, could not compete for new individuals.

At the end of a chalk, about 65 million years ago, an accident destroyed last World Hybodus, Tyrannosaurus and other dinosaurs Dynasties items. However Sharks have survived, which now represents the last direct descendants of almost prehistoric monsters.

Fossil Crocodile

National Geographic's Darwin Error

The November edition of National Geographic magazine (NG) posed the question "Was Darwin Wrong?" on its front cover. Natural scientist David Quammen, author of the article by the same name, replied "No" to that question from his own perspective, and claimed that Darwin's theory of evolution was today backed up by powerful scientific evidence. Quammen repeated the main claims from Darwin's book The Origin of Species, but overlooked one important detail.

Darwin added another chapter to his book, one called "Difficulties on Theory," and openly admitted the existence of difficulties in these terms:

Such is the sum of the several chief objections and difficulties which may justly be urged against my theory… I have felt these difficulties far too heavily during many years to doubt their weight. 1

The fact is, however, that the NG article discussed not one of the phenomena that Darwin regarded as a problem for his theory, and even ignored their existence. For example, although Darwin referred in his book to the way the fossil record failed to back up his theory and to the complexity in the eye, NG magazine did not even touch on such subjects which the theory of evolution is unable to account for as the Cambrian Explosion, biological complexity and the origin of genetic information.

Quammen, who thus appears to be more of a Darwinist than Darwin himself, emerged as the defender not of a theory that can account for difficulties, but of a "dogma" that needs to be shielded from criticism.

In this article, Quammen's so-called evidence is analysed and the Darwinist propaganda embarked on by NG magazine refuted.

An Example of NG Turkey's Dogmatic Stance

The English language edition of the NG article "Was Darwin Wrong?" also devoted space to Harun Yahya's works about the theory of evolution. In the section describing worldwide reactions against evolution the following words appeared in reference to Harun Yahya:

Their discomfort is paralleled by Islamic creationists such as Harun Yahya, author of a recent volume titled The Evolution Deceit, who points to the six-day creation story in the Koran as literal truth and calls the theory of evolution "nothing but a deception imposed on us by the dominators of the world system."

Interestingly though, Harun Yahya did not appear in NG's Turkish version, and this section was altered, assuming the following form: "This unease displays a parallelism among those who support the Islamic idea of creation."

As someone who states his primary aim as being that of describing the philosophy and scientific invalidity of Darwinism, Harun Yahya has closely monitored Darwinist propaganda in recent years and has responded, in the light of scientific findings, to the pro-evolutionist writings and broadcasts of media organisations, of which NG is one. (see www.darwinism-watch.com)

If Darwinism really were supported by a mass of evidence, as claimed in this NG article, then why is NG Turkey trying to prevent Harun Yahya's scientific criticisms from being heard? Could it be that NG Turkey was concerned that Darwinism will be unable to withstand such scientific criticism? In fact, this attitude by NG's Turkey desk not only shows that the magazine is unwilling to inform its readers of the source of effective criticism of evolution, but also confirms the criticism that it is seeking to keep Darwinism on its feet as an ideology.

NG Is Unwilling to Face the Modern Scientific Facts

There can be no doubt that in order to provide a realistic response to the question "Was Darwin Wrong?" one needs to look at what Darwin actually said and to compare this to modern scientific facts. In his book The Origin of Species, in which he unveiled his theory of evolution, Darwin provided a very important criterion by which to test his theory. So concrete is that criterion that in Darwin's own words it could "absolutely break down" the theory. Darwin wrote:

"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." 2

Darwin maintained that organs evolved during a gradual process. Thinking of this imaginary process in reverse, it appears that Darwin assumed that these organs possessed reducibility. However, advances made in the field of biochemistry, especially over the last 40 years, have revealed that the cell possesses a superior complexity, the details of which were unknown in Darwin's time, for which reason it was equated to a "black box," and that certain structures within the cell actually possess the feature of "irreducible complexity."

"Irreducible complexity" is a phenomenon based on empirical evidence and literally constitutes the antithesis of Darwin's theory. The most important figure to bring this concept onto the agenda of the scientific world is the biochemist Michael J. Behe from Lehigh University in the USA. In his 1996 book Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution Behe examines the irreducibly complex natures of the cell and certain other biological structures, and reveals that these cannot possibly be accounted for in terms of evolution. Behe sets out the effect that irreducible complexity has on the claims of Darwinism thus:

"To Darwin, the cell was a 'black box' -- its inner workings were utterly mysterious to him. Now, the black box has been opened up and we know how it works. Applying Darwin's test to the ultra-complex world of molecular machinery and cellular systems that have been discovered over the past 40 years, we can say that Darwin's theory has 'absolutely broken down'." 3

Irreducible complexity has demolished Darwinism, and proved that life is the product of intelligent design, in other words that God has created all living things. The way that NG seeks to keep this from its readers constitutes a flight from reality.

NG's biogeographical tales

In his article in NG, Quammen begins his account of the so-called evidence for Darwinism with biogeography, and it may be of use to provide a description of this concept at this point. Biogeography is a branch of science that investigates the geographical distribution of species and seeks an answer to the question of how they came by these habitat regions by drawing up maps of their locations on the Earth.

Most books in the field of biogeography are full of facts that say nothing, neither in favour nor against, the theory of evolution: such as maps of living species' habitat areas, the features of those areas, questions regarding the spread of organisms, and the grouping together of species on the basis of geographical area ... 4

When their distribution on the Earth is examined it can be seen that species do not generally exhibit a global distribution. Species have rather spread in large groups in areas possessing specific climatic and environmental conditions. Ever since Darwin, evolutionists have sought to portray this spread as evidence for evolution, though with regard to the "fundamental" living categories of geographical distribution their efforts have failed to come up with a consistent evolutionary scenario.

In their book Systematics and Biogeography, G. Nelson and N. Platnick of the New York American Museum of Natural History analysed the studies performed in this field and set out their conclusion:

We conclude, therefore, that biogeography (or geographical distribution of organisms) has not been shown to be evidence for or against evolution in any sense. 5

If evolutionists really wish to offer evidence for their theory then what they need to do is to abandon their fairy tales about "if this living thing is found here then it must have evolved here, and if that living thing is found there then it must have evolved there," and instead scientifically document their own responses to the question of how living things came into being in the first place. (It is an indisputable fact that the mechanisms of random mutation and natural selection cannot account for the origin of species.)

The fact that evolutionist claims based on biogeography are myths devoid of any scientific evidence clearly emerge on inspection of NG's claims about palaeontology. The fossil record clearly reveals that the idea that living things spread by evolving is a myth.

NG's palaeontology deception

NG makes a generalisation about the fossil strata, telling its readers that so-called closely related species are generally found side by side in consecutive strata, and that a life form going back millions of years in one stratum is followed by a similar, though not identical, one in the subsequent stratum. As an example of this generalisation it cites the equine sequence that even evolutionists abandoned years ago; it maintains that the modern-day horse emerged at the end of the sequence Hyracotherium, Orohippus, Epihippus and Mohippus, fossils of which are found in consecutive strata.

What NG is doing here consists of a blatant deception. The equine sequence is an unfounded one, the invalidity of which has now been demonstrated. That being the case, putting it forward as a generalisation regarding the fossil record cannot be described as anything else than an attempt to verify that generalisation with a deceptive example.

Life forms emerged with no evolutionary progenitors, but in a single moment, and with flawless bodily structures

Darwin, who maintained that living things emerged through graduated evolution and who hoped that the fossil record to confirm that claim would be obtained in future excavations, was mistaken. The fossils obtained in endless excavations carried out by palaeontologists all over the world have produced findings that openly refute the idea of gradual change in consecutive strata. These facts concern the phenomena of sudden appearance and stasis.

Species emerge suddenly, with no evolutionary progenitors but with flawless bodily structures. In his 1999 book Fossils and Evolution, Tom Kemp, Curator of the Zoological Collections in Oxford University Museum of Natural History, admits this:

In virtually all cases a new taxon appears for the first time in the fossil record with most definitive features already present, and practically no known stem-group forms. 6

Fossils hundreds of millions of years old that bear no

trace of evolution invalidate neo-Darwinism

Furthermore, species exhibit no gradual change as suggested in the NG generalisation. Species with natural histories of hundreds of millions of years exhibit a "stability" demonstrating a permanency throughout geological strata. The shark, coelacanth, ant, salamander and many other species, fossils of which have been found and which have remained unchanged for hundreds of millions of years, have led to palaeontologists accepting stasis as one of the most striking aspects of the fossil record. This phenomenon refutes Darwinism's prediction of gradual change and invalidates the theory. Professor of Geology Peter J. Williamson describes this in Nature magazine:

The principal problem is morphological stasis. A theory is only as good as its predictions, and conventional neo-Darwinism, which claims to be a comprehensive explanation of evolutionary process, has failed to predict the widespread long-term morphological stasis now recognized as one of the most striking aspects of the fossil record. 7

In short, NG's claim of graduated change throughout geological strata is a myth supported in the face of the science of palaeontology. The way that NG seeks to support that myth with the equine sequence only makes matters worse.

The truth in the equine sequence that NG seeks to conceal from its readers

The equine sequence is based on various hoofed fossils unearthed in North America. Darwinists set these out in such a way as to establish a sequence, according to the fossils' dental characteristics and numbers of toes, and for years put this forward as evidence for Darwinism. Continuing palaeontological excavations, however, definitively revealed the inconsistencies within that series. NG, known for its blind devotion to Darwinism, has no qualms about concealing this development from its readers and writing that the alleged evolutionary ancestors of the horse follow one another in consecutive geological strata.

Former BBC science editor Gordon Rattray Taylor describes how the equine sequence constitutes no evidence for Darwinism:

But perhaps the most serious weakness of Darwinism is the failure of paleontologists to find convincing phylogenies or sequences of organisms demonstrating major evolutionary change... The horse is often cited as the only fully worked-out example. But the fact is that the line from Eohippus to Equus is very erratic. It is alleged to show a continual increase in size, but the truth is that some variants were smaller than Eohippus, not larger. Specimens from different sources can be brought together in a convincing-looking sequence, but there is no evidence that they were actually ranged in this order in time. 8

At a meeting in November 1980 at the Chicago Museum of Natural History, attended by 150 evolutionists, one speaker, Boyce Rensberger, stated that there was no basis in the fossil record for the scenario of equine evolution, and that no gradual equine evolution ever took place:

The popularly told example of horse evolution, suggesting a gradual sequence of changes from four-toed fox-sized creatures living nearly 50 million years ago to today's much larger one-toed horse, has long been known to be wrong. Instead of gradual change, fossils of each intermediate species appear fully distinct, persist unchanged, and then become extinct. Transitional forms are unknown. 9

Discoveries that living things included in the imaginary sequence of equine evolution actually lived at the same time, and even together, totally refute Quammen. One of the most striking examples of this came to light in 1981. Fossils of thousands of living things, 10 million years old, that had been buried under lava as the result of a volcanic eruption and whose skeletons had been preserved down to the present day, were dug up in the US state of Nebraska. With that discovery it emerged that three- and single-toed equines assumed to have lived at different periods and to have ancestral relationships with one another in the framework of evolutionists' imaginary equine sequence, actually lived side by side. Interestingly the source of this information is NG magazine. 10

The myth of whale evolution

I can see no difficulty in a race of bears being rendered, by natural selection, more and more aquatic in their structure and habits, with larger and larger mouths, till a creature was produced as monstrous as a whale. 11

From watching bears fishing along a river bank, Darwin set out his ideas on the origin of whales in these words in his book The Origin of Species, though he elected to remove that section from subsequent editions of the book. Yet evolutionists who came after Darwin had no hesitation over adopting this myth, with various minor amendments, that came down as a monument to the unrestricted nature of his imagination. They continued to propagate the myth that the whale evolved not from the bear but from other land mammals, as if this were a scientific fact.

It can now be seen that NG, one of the main representatives of Darwinian mythology, is behaving no differently, and is seeking to portray this great myth, supported for the sake of the dogma of evolution, as representing evidence for evolution.

There are enormous differences, in terms of such basic physiological characteristics as water conservation, sight and communication, between whales and the land mammals alleged to have been their progenitors. Let us now consider the scientific dilemma facing the myth of evolution by examining the design in whales:

The special water conservation design in whales' bodies

Although they live in water, whales are unable to meet their water requirements from salty sea water. They need fresh water to live. Although it is not known exactly how they meet their water needs, it is thought that a large part of it is obtained by eating sea creatures that contain levels of salt that are 30% lower than those of the ocean water.In such an environment, where fresh water is exceedingly scarce, the maximum conservation of water in living things' bodies and minimum consumption thereof are critical. Water levels are of great importance to whales, for which reason, just like camels, whales do not perspire. Their kidneys regulate urine concentration in such a way as to supply water.

Why is whale milk fatty?

Another delicate balance with regard to water needs appears in the fat level in the female whale's milk. The mother whale feeds her young with a very thick milk, of the consistency of cheese. This milk is ten times fattier than human milk. There is a chemical reason why this milk contains such a high level of fat. Water is produced as a side product as fat is processed after being consumed by the baby. In this way the mother meets her offspring's need for water with minimal water loss.

The design in whales' eyes

There are complex arrangements in the design of the whale eye and its communication systems, no examples of which are to be found in terrestrial mammals. Land mammals have eyelids to protect against dust and impact. Whales, on the other hand, have a hard layer to protect against a different danger, the pressure under the sea. Moreover, the refractive index in the design of the whale eye makes it possible for a killer whale to leap up and catch a fish six metres above the water level in an amusement park with considerable accuracy. In addition, whales' eyes are on either side of the head, unlike terrestrial mammals, thus protecting them from the current. Thanks to the levels of rod and cone cells in the eye, their sensitivity levels to light, colour and other details are very high. In addition to that ratio, the presence of phosphorus in the eyes is a design that facilitates their ability to see in the dark depths of the oceans.

The mathematical calculation employed by whales

The sense used by whales in the location of sources of food and of one another is not actually sight, but rather hearing. Many whales hunt at the dark regions at the bottom of the sea thanks to a form of natural "sonar." The whale's brain emits clicking sounds, in a way not yet fully understood by scientists. The distance of an object is determined by means of a mathematical calculation. The whale brain multiplies the speed at which the sounds it emits strike an object and bounce back by the time necessary for this, and divides the result by two. The result is the distance of the object from itself. Furthermore, the whale also possesses the ability to focus the sound waves with its brain on a specific point and to emit these like a light impulse. The returning waves are analysed and interpreted in the animal's brain. This interpretation determines the shape of the body in front of it, its size, speed and position. The animal's skull is sound-proofed to protect it from the bombardment of powerful sound waves it constantly emits and which could even seriously damage the brain itself. The sonic system in the animal is unbelievably sensitive, so much so that the US Navy imitates the sonar design in sea mammals in developing its own technology. 12

Special designs for whale calves

The perfect designs in whales are by no means limited to these. The shape of a whale calf's mouth has been designed in such a way as to be ideally suited to fit its mother's teats, so that the calf is able to suckle without losing a drop of milk and without taking in a drop of sea water. Moreover, they possess lungs capable of storing high levels of oxygen for protracted dives and an ear membrane designed to protect them from high pressure.

These arrangements, every one of which indicates an evident design, are particular to whales and are not to be found in any terrestrial mammal. NG, however, expects it readers to set reason aside and believe that these all came about by chance. NG denies that whales were intelligently designed, maintaining instead that one fine day a land mammal decided to live in the sea, and that the whale evolved as the result of unconscious mechanisms such as random mutations and natural selection.

Yet what mutation could possibly produce sonar in a mammal that was allegedly the progenitor of the whale? Bearing in mind the effect of mutations and the importance of the brain to the whale's survival, it is clear that mutations would damage the brain, crippling or killing the whale. Could the brain, that produces sound waves, be able to focus these on a particular point and determine the location of objects using a mathematical calculation, acquire a perfect sonar in an area that would be damaged during this random process? By what coincidence could it produce sonar of such a high quality that even the US Navy's technology development units have been unable to match it? What mutations could turn a land mammal's feet into fins and a tail capable of propelling several tons of weight?

There is no doubt that these questions may also be asked with regard to the systems that make it possible to use water so productively, the suckling system and the protective systems in the eye and ear. However, NG has no reasonable response to give to these questions. There is but one answer. Whales were created fully formed in a single moment. God created whales to be flawless, endowed with all the systems for their needs, just as He did all other living things. In one verse of the Qur'an it is revealed that:

Mankind! remember God's blessing to you. Is there any creator other than God providing for you from heaven and earth? There is no god but Him. So how have you been perverted? (Qur'an, 35: 3)

(For a more detailed reply to NG's fantastical whale story see http://www.harunyahya.com/70national_geographic_sci29.php)

NG's error regarding embryology

Another error in Quammen's article in NG is the repetition of a myth once known as the "law of recapitulation." This belonged to the German biologist Ernst Haeckel and in his claim regarding embryology Darwin was to a large extent "inspired" by Haeckel. The law of recapitulation maintains that the embryological development of living things repeats the imaginary stages undergone during the descent of the alleged evolutionary ancestors.

The fact that Quammen devotes space to this in his article reveals a wide gap of knowledge on his part. Objections along the lines that Haeckel's claims were devoid of any scientific justification and that the evidence he offered was forged began 136 years ago13, and the end of the law of recapitulation as the subject of scientific debate came as far back as 80 years ago 14. Even George Gaylord Simpson, one of the founders of neo-Darwinism, admitted this fact 42 years ago in the words:

Haeckel misstated the evolutionary principle involved. It is now firmly established that ontogeny does not repeat phylogeny. 15

Moreover, the myth of recapitulation, which NG has no qualms over recapitulating itself, involves what one British embryologist referred to in 1997 as "the best known fraud in the history of biology." In his book Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte (The History of Natural Creation), written in 1868, Haeckel deliberately distorted the pictures of human, monkey and dog embryos in such a way as to support his claim.

One striking aspect of this fraud is that it also constitutes a "centennial monument" to Darwinist dogmatism. Until recently, a number of Darwinist sources, including text books, continued either to use the counterfeit drawings as they were, or else to repeat the myth of recapitulation. The Harvard University professor and evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould displayed great common sense and offered the following criticism:

… [W]e do, I think, have the right to be both astonished and ashamed by the century of mindless recycling that has led to the persistence of these drawings in a large number, if not a majority, of modern textbooks! 16

NG has not used counterfeit drawings. Yet it has no hesitations over using recapitulation, the invalidity of which emerged at least 80 years ago, as support for Darwinism.

We urge NG to consider Stephen Jay Gould's words.

NG's errors with regard to morphology

Quammen exhibits a most thought-provoking attitude in that section in which he deals with Darwin's claims on the subject of morphology. The way that a zoo is organised into birds, monkeys, big cats, crocodiles or fish in the aquarium is interpreted as evidence for evolution. According to Quammen, the fact that living things can be classified under a hierarchical system in families, orders and kingdoms must be the product of an evolutionary process.

However, Quammen's portrayal of hierarchical classification as evidence for evolution is nonsensical. That is because the fact that forms of life can be classified hierarchically is not a prediction first put forward by evolutionists and then subsequently confirmed. The Swedish scientist Carl Linnaeus, the father of the modern system of classification, was a scientist who believed in creation from nothing and regarded that classification as the product of intelligent design. That is compatible with what we see with our own eyes and is grounded in common sense. The ability to be hierarchically classified is a well known hallmark of intelligent design. Means of transport, for example, can be classified as land, air and sea vehicles, and may be broken down into subcategories and even smaller subgroups. Yet this classification does not show that the modes of transport in question came into being through evolution.

Indeed, in an article published in the magazine New Scientist, the prominent evolutionist Mark Ridley makes the following statement:

The simple fact that species can be classified hierarchically into genera, families, and so on, is not an argument for evolution. It is possible to classify any set of objects into a hierarchy whether their variation is evolutionary or not. 17

Quammen's preconception

In the same way that what Quammen writes on this subject are far from supporting his claim, it also reveals how he relies on preconceptions rather than scientific evidence:

Such a pattern of tiered resemblances?groups of similar species nested within broader groupings, and all descending from a single source?isn't naturally present among other collections of items. You won't find anything equivalent if you try to categorize rocks, or musical instruments, or jewelry. Why not? Because rock types and styles of jewelry don't reflect unbroken descent from common ancestors. Biological diversity does. The number of shared characteristics between any one species and another indicates how recently those two species have diverged from a shared lineage. (p. 13)

Quammen placed the hierarchical categorisation in living things in a separate place, on the grounds that it reflects a continual chain of descent from a common ancestor. That term, however, is helpless labelling in Quammen's desperate attempts to prove Darwin right.

As is made clear above, there is no fossil record capable of being proposed as evidence of any evolutionary link between living categories. The words of the prominent evolutionary palaeontologist Stephen Jay Gould that "The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of their branches" are an admission of the fact that there is actually no evidence for the evolutionary links assumed to exist among living things. 18

In short, the origin of the evolutionary chain of descent that Quammen claims exists among living categories is not scientific fact such as the fossil record, but rather his own dogmatic mentality.

The five-digit skeletal structure error

Quammen maintains that the way that various vertebrates such as the bat, the dolphin and human beings all share the feature of having five digits stems from descent from a common ancestor. This claim rests on the fact that although there is the same basic plan in the front and rear legs of the living things in question, these can still be easily differentiated (the homological claim). This claim of Quammen's can of course only deceive those readers who are unaware of the facts of modern science. Advances in the field of molecular biology definitively invalidate this morphology-based claim. One striking discovery that led to this is that the production of these organs, assumed to be a legacy from a common ancestor, is in fact controlled by different genes in different creatures.

The evolutionary biologist William Fix describes the collapse of the evolutionary thesis concerning pentadactylism (having five digits) in this area in the face of this discovery:

The older textbooks on evolution make much of the idea of homology, pointing out the obvious resemblances between the skeletons of the limbs of different animals. Thus the `pentadactyl' limb pattern is found in the arm of a man, the wing of a bird, and flipper of a whale, and this is held to indicate their common origin. Now if these various structures were transmitted by the same gene couples, varied from time to time by mutations and acted upon by environmental selection, the theory would make good sense. Unfortunately this is not the case. Homologous organs are now known to be produced by totally different gene complexes in the different species. The concept of homology in terms of similar genes handed on from a common ancestor has broken down. 19

NG's vestigial Darwinism

Quammen displays a striking determination not to grasp the fact that Darwin's claims have been demolished by modern science. One of the indications of this is his repetition of the claim regarding vestigial organs, a claim which is utterly illusory. It is maintained in the article that organs such as the male nipple, structures claimed to be the vestiges of rear legs in certain snakes, or the covered wings in coleoptera that are not actually used, are redundant, functionless organs left over from the evolutionary process. Quammen is clearly ignoring the definitive results from scientific developments:

The list of up to 180 supposed vestigial organs at the beginning of the 20th century eventually shrank to almost none in the face of discoveries from scientific research. One by one it emerged that a great many organs, such as the appendix and the plica semilunaris, once supposed to be vestigial organs, do actually have functions.20 "Science" is in any case the process by which human beings come to know what was previously unknown. The gradual emergence of the functions of organs that were once regarded as vestigial shows that, logically, the functions of the last few remaining organs whose functions are still unknown will soon be revealed.

Indeed, a great many present-day evolutionists have admitted that the myth of "vestigial organs" is an argument rooted in ignorance. In an article headed "Do Vestigial Organs Represent Evidence for Evolution?" published in the journal Evolutionary Theory, the evolutionary biologist S. R. Scadding admits this fact:

Since it is not possible to unambiguously identify useless structures, and since the structure of the argument used is not scientifically valid, I conclude that 'vestigial organs' provide no special evidence for the theory of evolution. 21

Evolutionists' claim on the subject of vestigial organs stem not from any vestigialism in these organs, but from the vestigial nature of their own perspectives. The existence of any living thing proves only the existence of God, its creator. The way that inanimate and unconscious atoms combine to produce a hearing, smelling, touching and seeing human being is proof of God's flawless creation. That it is because it is impossible for atoms, which cannot smell, hear or see, to wish to have perception and to combine together for that purpose. For a collection of matter to stand and look at itself in front of a mirror, or for matter to taste and touch itself, has no place in evolutionary logic. These feelings can only be explained in terms of a superior creation, in other words the existence of God and His flawless creation. Despite this self-evident truth, evolutionists hold to the irrational and blind belief that they themselves are the product of matter and blind chance, which shows that their claim regarding vestigial organs is one based on this prejudiced and dogmatic perspective.

The realisation that the organs regarded by evolutionists as vestigial do actually have functions is a proof of this. For example, the structures portrayed as the vestiges of rear legs in certain species of snake are now known to help them to grip one another during mating. To regard the male nipple as the product of an evolutionary process also rests on a distorted logic. If the male nipple were a leftover from an evolutionary process then males must have evolved from a population consisting solely of females, which is a scenario so unimaginable that no evolutionist has felt able to accept it. Coleoptera, another example cited by Quammen, also constitute no evidence for evolution. Insect species which do not develop a functional wing are generally seen in open habitats with strong winds, such as ocean islands. In an environment where strong winds blow and surrounded by large masses of water, insects' being able to fly is by no means an advantage, and may even represent a danger. That is because insects flying in the air are exposed to the effects of the wind and can be hurled into trees or rocks, ending up crippled or dead. There may, therefore, have been a tendency for them to move towards a ground-based lifestyle. Over time, the insect population that lives near the ground comes to consist of individuals that do not develop fully fledged wings. That is because, unlike flying insects, mutations that prevent insects that live near to ground level developing wings may not be damaging to the insect (on the provision that they do not cause a total interruption in its physiology).

A mutation that prevented wing development in a flying insect living in a habitat uninfluenced by winds would be harmful and maybe even lethal. That is because normally an insect that uses its wings to feed and to avoid predators would possess functionless wings because of that mutation and would be unable to survive and thus eliminated from the population.

On the other hand, in insects living in a habitat affected by winds and that used their feet to move about in the same way as non-flying insects, a mutation in the wings might not have lethal consequences. That is because the insect will already have grown accustomed to a life style in which it does not use wings, and it will make no difference whether its wings are healthy or else lose their function due to mutation (as long as the mutation in question is not one that affects the insect's general physiology). In short, a destructive mutation leading to the loss of an insect's wings may not be lethal in an environment where wings are in any case of no consequence.

However, it cannot be said that the coleoptera that are assumed to have undergone such a process represent evidence of evolution. The theory of evolution proposes that organs gradually assume a more complex form. The genetic change proposed in support of this claim must be of such a kind as to add new genetic information to creatures' DNA. It is evident, however, that coleoptera do not gain any new genetic information during this process and that, on the contrary, they suffer a loss of information in the genes that control wing development.

Can this acquisition of genetic information, which is not seen in coleoptera, be observed in any other living thing? Definitely not. Evolutionists have been unable to show the emergence of a new organ, or even a new protein, by means of random mutations.

In short, the theory of evolution maintains that living things acquire new organs with the addition of new genetic information to their DNA, but the vestigial organ argument is one that concerns a loss of function, in other words a loss of genetic data. Therefore, vestigial organs provide no scientific support for the theory of evolution. The reason for evolutionists' determination to place this claim on the scientific agenda is psychological rather than scientific. Their display of blind devotion to materialism leads them to adopt a vestigial perspective towards the evident truth of creation. (You can read Harun Yahya's article that demolishes evolutionists' vestigial viewpoint here. http://www.darwinism-watch.com/hurriyet_science0407.php)

James P. Gills, M.D., founder of St. Luke's Cataract and Laser Institute in Tarpon Springs, Florida, is a creationist scientist. He is also a world-renowned ophthalmologist. In his book Darwinism Under the Microscope, Gills cites a great many proofs of creation that totally undermine evolution, and writes that the only reason why scientists still insist on evolution is the spiritual cataract of thinking of themselves as the product of blind chance. 22

The error of thinking that resistance to antibiotics and DDT is evidence of evolution

The NG article seeks to show that bacterial immunity to antibiotics and insects' resistance to such pesticides as DDT constitutes evidence for evolution. On the subject of the resistance that microbes appear to develop to drugs Quammen confidently states:

There's no better or more immediate evidence supporting the Darwinian theory than this process of forced transformation among our inimical germs. (p. 21)

However, Quammen's excitement in portraying bacterial immunity as evidence for evolution is totally misplaced. It is explained below why these two phenomena do not represent evidence for Darwinism.

The first of the "deadly molecules" employed against micro-organisms was penicillin, discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928. Fleming discovered a molecule that killed the Staphylococcus mould bacterium, after which antibiotics taken from micro-organisms were used against various bacteria. Although it appeared at first that definitive results had been obtained, the truth later emerged: bacteria gradually acquire resistance to antibiotics. The great majority of bacteria exposed to antibiotics die, but since a small minority remain unaffected this rapidly multiply and eventually come to constitute the entire population. Thus the entire population becomes resistant to the antibiotic.

However, there is no question of bacteria developing through mutation here, because the bacteria already possess the characteristics in question before being exposed to antibiotics. Despite being an evolutionist publication, Scientific American magazine admitted these facts in its March 1998 edition:

Many bacteria possessed resistance genes even before commercial antibiotics came into use. Scientists do not know exactly why these genes evolved and were maintained. 23

Insects acquire resistance to pesticides such as DDT in the same way, and, again in the same way, this represents no evidence for evolution.

The prominent evolutionary biologist Francisco Ayala accepts the truth of this in the words:

The genetic variants required for resistance to the most diverse kinds of pesticides were apparently present in every one of the populations exposed to these man-made compounds. 24

One of those to carry out the most detailed research on this subject is the Israeli biophysicist Dr. Lee Spetner. In his book Not by Chance, published in 1997, Spetner showed that bacterial immunity is brought about by two different mechanisms, but that these offer no support for the theory of evolution. For more detail on this subject see http://www.harunyahya.com/20questions05.php#q19 and http://www.darwinismrefuted.com/embryology_01.html)

Another so-called piece of evidence in the NG article, in addition to the resistance in bacteria and insects, concerns genetic similarities.

The deception that evolution can be observed

NG claims that evolution can actually be witnessed in nature and in the laboratory. This, however, is a fantastical and groundless claim. In an article titled "How Are New Species Formed?" published in the 14 June, 2003, edition of New Scientist, George Turner made the following significant "admission":

Not long ago, we thought we knew how species formed. We believed that the process almost always started with complete isolation of populations. It often occurred after a population had gone through a severe "genetic bottleneck," as might happen after a pregnant female was swept off to a remote island and her offspring mated with each other. The beauty of this so-called "founder effect" model was that it could be tested in the lab. In reality, it just didn't hold up. Despite evolutionary biologists' best efforts, nobody has even got close to creating a new species from a founder population. What's more, as far as we know, no new species has formed as a result of humans releasing small numbers of organisms into alien environments. 25

As we have seen, evolutionists do not actually know how new species are formed. In other words, Quammen's claim about being able to witness evolution in action is totally unfounded. The fact that the long years of study carried out by the Grants into chaffinch beak lengths on the Galapagos islands is cited in support is the result of Darwinism misrepresenting variations to represent evidence for itself. (For further information, see http://www.harunyahya.com/nas04.php)

Conclusion

As we have seen, Darwin was wrong. National Geographic's posing the question whether he was wrong is as ridiculous as asking "Was Freud wrong?" or "Was Marx wrong?" That is because, like Freudianism and Marxism, Darwinism is a theory that has come to the end of its life. We call upon NG magazine to abandon its support for this outdated myth and to accept that creation is the true origin of life.

What NG needs to do is to set its preconceptions to one side and cease supporting Darwinism as a dogma, and to face up to the scientific evidence that undermines this theory. Discoveries in the last 40 years in particular have definitively revealed the invalidity of the naturalist philosophy at the heart of Darwinism. If NG does face up to that fact it will see that the organised complexity of life and the genetic information on which it depends point to intelligent design, in other words that life did not evolve on its own through chance and natural events, but was "created."

NG - and all other Darwinists - have so far avoided facing up to this, and may therefore have resorted to covering up the difficulties facing their theory. Yet they must be aware that this avoidance will be of no use in keeping their theory alive. That is because a major development in the world of science is serving notice that the age of sweeping matters under the carpet has come to an end.

The way that the intelligent design movement, that has been sweeping through the USA over the last 10 years, has one by one unmasked the dogmas of Darwinism, has made it the focus of wide interest. The intellectual basis of this movement is the "Theory of Intelligent Design." The theory in question maintains that complex biological structures containing large amounts of information can only be explained in terms of intelligence-based causes, and that these causes can be empirically studied in the field of biology. 26

One indication that the intelligent design movement may represent the dynamic for major cultural changes is the way it is effectively and in a widespread manner revealing that the evidence for so long taught as evidence for Darwinism in schools actually consists of mythology, deception, misrepresentation and even fraud. California Berkeley University's Professor Phillip E. Johnson, the leader of the movement, stresses that Darwinism will pass into the dustbin of history sometime in this century. 27

It will be of use here to remind NG of the damage from a determined persistence in its policy of uncritical defence of Darwinism. It will be remembered that NG announced the discovery of the Archaeoraptor fossil discovered in China as definitive proof that birds evolved from dinosaurs, without waiting for it to be described in referred scientific journals. Later, however, it was realised that the fossil did not represent a missing link at all, but was a counterfeit "produced" by a Chinese peasant.26 Because of its blind devotion to Darwinism NG had no hesitation in embracing this fossil as "proof" by unscientific methods, and later found itself in "modern paleontology's greatest embarrassment." 29

According to the ornithologist Dr. Storrs Olson, "National Geographic has reached an all-time low for engaging in sensationalistic, unsubstantiated, tabloid journalism." 30

The portrayal of the claim of recapitulation, which died at least 80 years ago, as evidence for evolution in NG's article "Was Darwin Wrong" shows that it is devoid of the seriousness required by science and is continuing with its "unsubstantiated, tabloid journalism." NG is not behaving intelligently. Maintaining this approach does not provide any support for Darwinism. On the contrary, NG is documenting its own dogmatism in an ever more obvious way.

We invite NG to consider these points and to accept that creation is the true origin of life.

There is no doubt that the Lord of all living things, on Earth, in the Sky, and between, is God. In one verse of the Qur'an God reveals that:

Your God is One God. There is no god but Him, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful. (Qur'an, 2: 163)

Plant-eating crocodiles in the fossil record? Found where?

I heard about them years ago, that they were found in strata that placed them after the Cretaceous. I would be most interested to know whether they evolved only in isolated places like S.America when it was surrounded by ocean, or Madagascar -- just like giant birds. It would support the extinction theory I wrote about at dinotheorist.com.

It seems the answer is Madagascar and China.

On the Madagascar species:

http://www.digimorph.org/specimens/Simosuchus_clarki/

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/803236.stm

The species from China:

"The reported find of a fossilised herbivorous crocodyliform (Wu, 1995) is almost as surprising as finding a herbivorous member of the Cat Family. Crocodiles are perceived as reptilian predators par excellence in the popular mind. From diagnostic features in the teeth, the "first known herbivorous member of that group" has been identified, named Chimaerasuchus paradoxus."

Do Dragons Walk Among Us (Carry Out They Still) Part 1

Just about any culture on earth comes with an oral tradition of runs into with big, strange beasts? creatures different from those we realize. Were they dragons? Why don? big t we still have dragons among us? Or maybe do many of us? Will we all ever know for certain?

Component 1

Exactly what are dragons?

From the fossil file, we've a sizeable body of knowledge about huge animals that are no longer represented in the animal kingdom. Though these kinds of creatures varied greatly when it comes to size, appearance, diet, environment, mode involving motility, and probably almost every other characteristic, all of us collectively call all such anciently died out species? dinosaurs.?

In regards to what ended their particular presence on the planet, we've only rumours, with people of differing thoughts being just as adamant concerning their points of see. Standard evolutionary hypothesis favors the explanation that the devastating Meteorite hit the planet earth about 65 million years back, creating extended darkness from dust and debris thrown to the atmosphere, thus snuffing out and about many living forms.

The particular creationist standpoint, however, tends toward an infinitely more recent time frame for the collective demise of the large ancient animals. Precisely how recent is a subject of debate, even the type of who share the same basic Biblical viewpoint, with? old-earth? creationists occupying something of a middle ground between your evolutionists and the? new-earth? creationists, that date the earth at around 10, 000 years. Those two groups agree that the death of the dinosaurs was due to the Genesis Flood and/or the global geological and climatic changes that transpired after that.

Those who want to think that dragons really lived (and who wouldn? t?) might you should consider a probable link involving dinosaurs, the Loch Ness beast, and a great flood (or the fantastic Flood).

Dragons around the world

Both Old and New Testaments talk about monsters? the books of Job, Psalms, Isaiah, and Revelation. Dragons can be found in the Babylonian creation story; Nebuchadnezzar built the city of Babylon with carvings of dragons all around the walls, and put the dragon upon his close off. Ancient Egyptians used images of dragons to protect their palaces. Both ancient Greeks and Romans experienced dragon mythologies, as do China and Japan, Mesopotamia and India.

Europe comes with an especially rich tradition of dragons. The Vikings carved dragons on their ships. Celtic nobleman in England were named? dragons.? Pendragon means? chief dragon,? or head of most chiefs among the ancient Britons. Scotland and France have dragon contacts. Wales gets the dragon since its country wide symbol. Britain alone has nearly 200 sites identified together with dragon lore.

As a land composed of islands, Great britain has an obvious attract creatures that thrive in or close to water, which might explain its particularly strong relationship with dragons? an association that produces sense in the Flood scenario. Several local fests of ancient origin continue to re-enact the actual killing of the resident dragon. Around England are generally places named for dragon slayings. Monster Hill will be where St. George, patron saint of England, is said to have killed the dragon. Tale says that grass has never since grown where the dragon? s blood was spilled.

United states has the share regarding dragons. Mexican history provides Quetzalcoatl? component serpent and part beautiful bird? the particular god of wind, intelligence, and life. The actual Algonquin Indians of United states worshipped any dragon known as Piasa; the actual Apache group had one called Chiricahua.

Based on dragon lore, many and varied types of dragons as soon as graced the planet earth. Some have two legs, some have four, a few none. Some have wings. Several breathe flame, some have poisonous stingers on the tails. Some have parts of the body of another animal or of a human. Some have scales; some have smooth, leathery epidermis. They can be found in all colors and a variety of sizes. Common history is important here, since features just like color and skin texture can't be determined from fossil exam. These descriptions could be superimposed upon the ones from dinosaurs without taxing the imagination.

Curiously, while Western dragons are portrayed since man-eating and evil, Far eastern dragons are believed good, type, and intelligent.

How can Nessie easily fit into?

Much while the traditional land-based monster, the floating around monster likewise enjoys a worldwide reputation. Of those, the actual Loch Ness list is arguably the most famous.

Studies of Loch Ness monster sightings pretty much agree on what Nessie appears like. She (I? m going to call it? she? intended for simplicity? s sake) is really a large dog, 20-60 legs long, with a thick, rounded back and a muscular-looking tail. She has a small head along with lashes extensions and a long neck of the guitar, a little thicker than an elephant? s trunk area, forming numerous arches. She's got elephant-like skin and two really short forelegs or perhaps flippers. Her body might have a fin as well, and is grayish-black. She actually is reportedly an easy swimmer.

Nessie has been spotted periodically for above 1400 many years. The initial recorded sighting was by St. Columba within 565 ADVERTISING.

Loch Lochy, Loch Lomond, and Loch Shiel all have been sites of probable monster presence. Ireland includes a lake animal they call up Plasts; Wales has one called Afanc. The uk? s deepest human body of fresh water, Pond Morar, over 1, 000 ft deep, possesses Morag.

Sweden has the Great River Monster. Spain has several lakes together with long-necked animals. A pond in Japan now states a pond monster, because does River Van, a saltwater river in southeastern Chicken.

Lake Okanagan inside British Columbia hosts Ogopogo. In america, Lake Champlain offers Champ, Wallowa Pond in Oregon has Wally, and California-Nevada? t Lake Tahoe has received a number of sightings involving strange drinking water creatures.

What Nessie et ing. could be

Most arguments against Nessie becoming any known types of creature start with an assumption of the evolutionary scenario. It's been suggested that Nessie might be an associate of the supposedly died out group archaeoceti, a suborder regarding Cetacea, the actual order including whales, porpoises, and dolphins.

It's not uncommon regarding animals thought to have gone extinct to show up alive and well. One example may be the coelacanth, the fish of the order crossopterygii, the actual order which includes a fish considered to have been the ancestral of property vertebrates. The particular discovery of a live coelacanth necessitated any rearrangement of the? family tree.?

Additionally, your pet species we have do not always belong to neat groups. The platypus and the spiny anteater (both mammals) lay down eggs. Bats (also mammals) take flight. The lungfish and the mudskipper (both fish) walk, and the walking perch can live for a day without water due to a supplemental respiratory system chamber that enables the fish to make use of air. Several snakes put eggs, others give birth to reside young, yet each one is reptiles. Indeed, the essential problem with taxonomy (the actual classification of organisms in a ordered method) is that it presupposes any correlation between your various levels of classification and the geological schedules of which they differentiated from one another.

Nessie might be an aquatic animal like a hippo or even crocodile that breathes together with just her nostrils over the waterline, or perhaps an amphibian together with gills, or any other unique creature.

While many descriptions of Nessie are similar, differing photos taken associated with her might suggest different species of lake pests. The presence of several species is not unlikely.

Why Beachcombing Is Needed For A Healthy Life

I really enjoy beachcombing and hunting fossils.  As I am walking along the beach listening to the sounds of seagulls screaming against the roaring surf, soaking up the warm sun, I look down and find a sharks tooth gleaming in the sand!  What is there not to enjoy about this!  For the health conscious, walking a few miles up and down a beach is also a good way to lose weight.

I like hunting fossils at Myrtle Beach, Edisto Beach and Hunting Island all in South Carolina.  I was able to go to Myrtle Beach this past January for a few days.  I found quite a few sharks teeth, some petrified wood and several fossilized clams. 

It is not too difficult to see a sharks tooth lying in the sand, you just need to take your time as you walk the beach.  Finding the fossilized clams are a little more difficult.  They look similar to just a black or gray rock; in fact, I pick up many rocks thinking they could be a clam.  When you do find one, it is very easy to identify – it looks just like a closed clam shell!  I have pictures of some fossilized clams on my website.  The petrified wood looks just like bits of wood only black in color.  It is interesting to pick up what appears to be a bit of wood but it is as hard as a rock.

If this sounds like a boring hobby, on your next trip to the coast, give it a try and I think you will be amazed at how relaxing yet exciting fossil hunting is.

Is it true that the largest fossil shark teeth are serrated and serrated teeth evolved?

Evolved because there is some evolutionary advantage sawtooth have?

It is true. Fossil shark teeth are about 420 million years with no serrations. http://www.elasmo-research.org/education/evolution/earliest.htm However, not all species of modern sharks have serrated teeth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark_tooth

All About Pottery Porcelain

As inside the other arts, after the introduction of the Renaissance, France imitated Italy from the creating of pottery and porcelain, but native talent soon asserted itself along with a actually French character grew to become noticeable.

The earliest of your famous French potters was Bernard Palissy (1510-1502), a terrific designer and painter on glass who 1st created pottery in imitation of metal work and later originated designs in amazing and grotesque forms, making use of reptiles, masks, leaves, (flowers, fossil shells along with other rustic types which ended up being modeled in relief on plates, pitchers and useful articles.

Porcelain pottery is described as white (although it could be colored artificially), translucent, vitreous and resistant to thermal shock. Porcelain is also an excellent insulator that it can be applied in creating false teeth.

He spent quite a few years of his life in discovering and improving enamel which he regarded as a satisfactory coating for the rustic pottery which was so remarkably modeled. This pottery is extremely uncommon and only identified in museums. It is often found to be reminiscent from the design of early wood burning fireplaces.

Porcelain pottery was born in China. This is why ceramic can be called "china" in English-speaking countries. The initially specimens dated back to as far as the 6th century. Porcelain was also mentioned in the accounts by Marco Polo in the course of the 13th century.

Italian majolica was 1st introduced into France about 1692, and reproductions of it were known as French faience. In the city of Nevers the Italian pottery was indifferently copied, and gradually Persian and other Near Eastern influences ended up seen in the decorative motifs. Another locality of early faience was in the city of Rouen, where manufacturing was began about 1644.

The faience built in this metropolis became additional delicate and refined in quality and also within the character of your designs used. Many with the designs for platters had been arranged in a graceful radiating pattern of tiny blue, green or yellow flowers on a cream background. We also find arabesque, Lambrequin, cornucopia and sheath and arrow patterns. Rouen pottery had a fantastic influence from the popularizing of this material for household use.

This mixture is fired up to 1200â,,?, glazed, and fired again. Much care is required when generating porcelain. For example, impurities present from the clay might create a grayish or pinkish product as opposed to pure white. You'll find 3 sorts of porcelain pottery: Hard paste porcelain, gentle paste porcelain and bone china.

Hard paste porcelain is fired at a temperature increased than what is required for doing gentle paste porcelain. This makes it harder as feldspar hardens glaze the greater the temperature at which it is fired. Hard paste porcelain is created up of fifty % china clay, thirty percent china stone or feldspar and twenty p.c flint. Its appearance is translucent. Hard paste porcelain is initially fired between 900â,,? and 1000â,,?. The temperature for the second firing should be amongst 1350â,,? and 1400â,,?.

Dinosaur Fossils

How Did The Dinosaurs Become Extinct

The extinction of the dinosaurs occurred during the end of the Cretaceous Period, around 65 million years ago, and caused the loss of up to 70 percent of all life on the planet. Although this event was not the only mass extinction in Earth's history or the most severe, dinosaur extinction has spawned a range of theories from the credible to the less than believable.

Ice Age

If an Ice Age occurred during the Cretaceous Period a considerable amount of the planet's water and large areas of land would have been locked in ice. Since dinosaurs were thought to be cold blooded they would probably not have been able to cope with such extreme conditions and their numbers would have eventually dwindled.

Disease

Disease is another suggestion for the extinction of the dinosaurs. It is difficult to see however how one disease could be so prevalent as to wipe out large swathes of the animal population, travel vast distances and kill off both land and marine species as well as plant life.

Climate Change

If a gradual change in the earth's climate occurred with a cooler, drier environment and an adapting plant life, possibly the dinosaurs would not have been able to adapt quickly enough to survive. The fossil records of dinosaur skulls show they could only have had small brains. This indicates dinosaurs relied on automatic body responses rather than the cognitive, decision making responses warm blooded animals are known to make. Therefore a changing environment could have been difficult for dinosaurs to adapt to and they may not have been able to compete effectively with warm blooded animals.

Supernova

A supernova is a star that explodes with enough energy to keep our sun burning for six billion years. If the Earth was hit by the resulting radiation from a nearby supernova it would have destroyed all dinosaur life. There is no evidence for a supernova causing the extinction of the dinosaurs, and it is difficult to see how anything would have outlived such an event.

The Volcano Theory

It is known that volcanic activity was widespread during the Cretaceous era, and is a credible reason why the dinosaurs became extinct. The Deccan Traps in western India and areas in the Pacific Basin are likely sites for increased volcanic activity at this time.

The consequences of large scale volcanic activity would have led to a nuclear type winter with ash and gasses added to the atmosphere, depleting sunlight and creating difficult conditions for dinosaur species. Hydrochloric acid in particular would have broken down the ozone layer allowing harmful ultraviolet rays to penetrate to the surface.

The high level of volcanic activity would also have emitted large volumes greenhouse gasses such as C02 and methane, increasing the Earth's temperature and drastically changing the planet's climate. The effects on the dinosaurs would have been catastrophic as they struggled to acclimatize to the changing conditions, and large scale extinction of dinosaur species would have been inevitable.

Cretaceous sediments support the theory of volcanic activity as they contain higher than normal concentrations of minerals and sodium, both associated with volcanoes. Cretaceous sediments can also contain volcanic rock.

The Asteroid Theory

In the late 1970's Luis and Walter Alvarez and scientists from the University of California were studying rocks of the K-T boundary (or Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary) in Gubbio, Italy. Within the clay layer of the K-T boundary they discovered concentrations of iridium thirty times higher than normal. The two natural sources of this rare element are asteroids and lava from the Earth's core, which led Luis and Walter Alvarez's team to first suggest an asteroid collided with the Earth causing dinosaur extinction. The Alvarez team estimated the asteroid would need to be ten kilometers in diameter to contain enough iridium to cause the iridium concentrations in the clay layer.

Further evidence to support an asteroid impact has emerged. The K-T boundary has two layers. The upper layer is three millimeters thick and includes soot which is believed to have come from global fires caused by the impact.

The lower level is two millimeters thick and contains ejecta from the asteroid impact site. This includes quartz crystals known as shock crystals which have been physically altered by high temperatures and intense pressure. The layer also contains tektites and micro tektites, which are often made of fused glass.  Shocked crystals and tektites are both closely associated with asteroid impact sites.

In 1990 the scientist Alan Hildebrand, after studying data gathered by geophysicists searching for oil, noticed a ring structure called Chicxulub off the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Chicxulub is a crater 180 kilometers in diameter and dates from around 65 million years ago, the same time as the extinction of the dinosaurs. It was estimated that an object ten kilometers in diameter impacting the site would have caused the crater, which fits the Alvarez team's calculations for the size of the asteroid to create the K-T boundary finds.

The Effects Of The Asteroid Impact On The Dinosaurs

It is estimated the speed of the asteroid would have been about 100,000 kilometers per hour and the initial impact would have destroyed everything within a 500 kilometer radius. The intense shock wave that followed would have caused large scale fires, whilst trillions of tons of debris, gas and water vapor would have been thrown into the atmosphere.

Earthquakes, tidal waves, volcanic eruptions as well as high winds would have followed. The soot and debris in the atmosphere would have blocked out the sun for months leading to fluctuating temperatures and severe disruption to photosynthesis. The global fires would have emitted large volumes of CO2, increasing global temperatures and causing a chain reaction that would create sulphur dioxide falling as acid rain.

Fires would have destroyed up to twenty five percent of all vegetation, and with photosynthesis unable to function effectively plant eating dinosaurs would have starved. This in turn would have led to large scale deaths of the carnivores bringing dinosaurs to extinction. Smaller animals such as scavengers and birds that could have traveled longer distances in search for food would have been more likely to have survived.

Effects On Marine Life

The levels of oxygen in the sea would have decreased as deep sea water was dragged to the surface by huge under water currents. Plankton would have died as a consequence leading to a collapse of the food chain and widespread death. Acid rain may also have increased the acidity of the sea, killing vulnerable species.

Problems With The Asteroid Theory

Whilst an asteroid impact has gained ground over most other theories, there still remain problems with the theory. Paleontologists have yet to find dinosaur fossils dating to the time of the impact, and some evidence suggests dinosaurs may have already been extinct before this event. In fact dinosaurs had been steadily declining for tens of thousands of years before the Chicxulub asteroid impacted.

There have been a number of mass extinction events in the Earth's history and a number of large asteroid impacts. However, these impacts have never been the cause of mass extinctions. It is also known that some climate sensitive species such as frogs survived the cretaceous extinction event, bringing into question the true long term effects of the asteroid on the environment.

In spite of these problems with the asteroid theory it is still the strongest explanation for the extinction of the dinosaurs. Perhaps the answer lies not with one explanation for dinosaur extinction but a combination of factors such as the asteroid impacting at a time of increased volcanic activity. In the final analysis, perhaps the extinction of the dinosaurs was a case of an accumulation of badly timed events that very few species could cope with.

How old are dinosaur fossils?

My fellow Christians- if the earth is 6000 years old, how can we also maintain that the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago?

The God I know doesn't deceive anyone. But I have heard a few people explain things that cast doubts on my beliefs. If God created the earth with the dinosaur fossils already embedded in the earth (one contingency), or if the fossils are much younger than they appear to be (another possibility), he may have allowed this to happen in order to test people's faith. Is that synonymous with deception?

Are there serious flaws with radiometric dating techniques?

The flaw in any sort of dating method is the assumptions. When a (secular) scientist discovers a dinosaur bone, he already has the date of the bone in his mind. When he takes the bone in to get dated, any dates that may suggest anything different than he is already convinced of is discarded due to "contamination". There are many dating methods which suggest only thousands of years, rather than millions of billions, but these methods are not mentioned by the "respectable" scientific community.

In the end, it's all about a world-view. If a person has an old-earth worldview, he will interpret all evidence to conform to his worldview. Likewise, if a person has a young-earth worldview, he will interpret all evidence to show a young earth. Evidence itself does not point one direction or the other, it is the interpretation of that evidence.

Wonderful Isle Of Wight Experiences

The island is really jumping, and don't let anyone ever say anything that contradicts this! Jools Holland was here last month, with great support from 80's star Alison Moyet. This month, Jazz on the Meadow is the top attraction on the 22nd. Supporting Courtney will be Omar Puente the lengendary Jazz Violinist, American vocalist Keri Highland, and Benedict Branca on saxophone all supported ably by the Ric Harris trio featuring Edana Minghella.

This month is also the time of the annual walking festival which is very popular with individuals looking to sample the lovely IOW landscapes. For anyone who visits the island, it is essential that you acquire a guide book showing you where to begin, take some study boots, pack of chocolate and a bottle of water and go and explore! If you are on foot use the Catamaran, otherwise take the iOW Ferries from Portsmouth or Lymington.

Not long ago I went for a visit to the IOW for our anniversary celebration. It was my first visit to the island for over 20 years since coming over as a teenager for the IOW festival. I was astounded by the scenery between the Needles park and the coastal road down to Ventnor. The sea roars in on the dark brown sands, and the cliff tops look out towards France as they have done for millions of years. Many fossil remains can be found on the beaches dating back as far as the Jurassic period, when dinosaurs lived on the Earth.

One walk that I discovered, which is also on the festival list is the strip between Ventnor and Shanklin. The pathway twists and turn along the cliff top, and then dives into wooded areas that contain some beautiful old trees. Along the way you will find some carefully crafted seats made from old tree trunks, where you can relax for a while and take in the smells from the sea.

You can choose beteen several walks this year, including the 72 mile complete walk done in 24 hours non-stop beginninng on Saturday 8th of May. A smaller area is also available to consider, which is much more of a leisurely approach.
