Grad Comics.

The new semester hasn't been easy as I have been quite busy and that has made me dizzy. Lame attempt at being poetic there. Now get ready for some lame attempts at being funny. Do you remember the Friends episode in which Chandler writes down his jokes? So I thought I might make note of some classics I have cracked in the past few days. [:D] means you are supposed to laugh, just like in sitcoms they have those laughter tracks to help you laugh at appropriate times.

“I have a long day ahead of me”. “Not possible, every day has 24 hours.” [:D]

“I cant understand the prof well.” “Sit at the back of the class so you will have more time to catch and understand what the prof says.” [:D]

“There is a meeting at 8:30, such an odd time!” “How is it odd? Both '8' and '30' are even numbers” [:D]

“The Panda is the least racist animal, its black, white and Asian.” “Is Michael Schumacher the most racist person?” [:D]

“I miss gals wearing sleeveless tshirts. When will the summer come?” “Yeah me too, I feel more comfortable with gals wearing sleeveless.” “Why?” “Then I am sure they don't have any tricks up their sleeve!” [:D]

“I went rock climbing yesterday.” “How was it?” “Didnt enjoy it as I am scared of heights.” “Hmm you will not get to far with career when you have to climb the corporate ladder.” [:D]

After a mock interview. Interviewer- “You think well on your feet.” Me thinking “Hows that possible? I was seated suring the interview. It was more like thinking on my butt!” [:D]

Hope you enjoyed the sad jokes. If not, read the post again!

Darwin's Leap of Faith - Busting the myth of evolution.

We all know the theory of evolution. Most of us 'know' that we have descended from apes, who in turn descended from some other animal, …...., who descended from nothing in particular. I learned this 'fact' when I was 10 years old. It took me 10 more years to start questioning it. And boy, am I glad to have done that.

Evolution is a theory not a fact. He just conjured it up based some a few things he observed. But why did Darwin's theory of man evolving from apes become a fact? There is no proof at all for Darwin's fairytale. It hasn't been proved at any level. I will give only a few points here just to arouse your interest so that maybe if you really care about where you came from and where you are going, you can start digging further.

Lets begin with the failure of man's attempts in creating life. If the top scientists in the world with the best equipment at hand cannot produce the simplest form of life, how can we believe blind chance doing such an awesome job in creating all life forms? The smallest living cell has the complexity of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet airplane. The components of the smallest living cell have the obvious arrangement showing intelligent design, just as the Boeing 747 did not appear from random parts stacked near each other in a junk yard. The minimal cell contains more than 60,000 proteins of 100 different configurations.

Mechanical Engineering
. The second law of thermodynamics proves that organization cannot flow from chaos. Complex live organisms cannot rearrange themselves into an organism of a higher form as claimed by evolutionists. This is scientifically backwards according to the second law of thermodynamics, which has never been proven wrong. The universe is slowing down to a lower state, not higher. The genes of plants, insects, animals and humans are continually becoming defective, not improving. Species are becoming extinct, not evolving. Order will always move naturally toward disorder or chaos, unless changed by an intelligent being. Sunlight by the way is a very diffuse form of energy and is incapable of reversing the disorder.

Chemistry. Proteins use only L form of amino acids. Chance lightening would form both L and D in equal amounts. Even a small amount of D form would produce proteins unsuitable for life. So there is no way that life could originate from the nutrient 'soup' that evolutionists claim life sprung from. Besides there is no evidence of this pre biotic soup in earth's oldest rocks.

Probability. Statisticians have calculated the probability of assembling amino acid building blocks into a functional protein as 1 in 4.9x10^191. And the simplest known self reproducing organism has 625 proteins. Can you imagine the amount of trust we have put in chance and time? There are only 10^18 seconds in 15 billion years. Just compare the two numbers.

Geology. We dont find any transitional forms in the fossils. Fossils have only fully developed extinct species. We have numerous fossils over all time periods, yet we don't see any transitional species. There are intermediate species between two species of the same level. These are lost cousins rather than ancestors. And all those fossils that were classified as the intermediate between apes and man have now been classified as either ape or man. The answer to this absence of transitional fossils, enter 'stepped evolution'. Stepped evolution theory states that evolution proceeded so fast over short time periods that there wasn't any chance for fossils to form from the transitional life forms. So what made evolution to speed up and slow down?

And since time is a major player in evolution, I must mention the fact that the age of the earth is also debated. All those radiometric dating methods are not fool proof. They are adjusted to suit evolution. To state it plainly, rocks are dated depending on the fossils found in them and fossils are dated depending on the rocks they were found in. Hurrah to circular reasoning!

Despite the overwhelming evidence against evolution, we all believe it without any question. Why? The main reason evolution is so widely accepted is because it takes away our accountability of our actions. We don't wanna know that God is watching over us and will judge us when the time comes. We want to be the masters of ourselves and sometimes others too. When we believe in evolution we are basically accountable to time and chance, both of which cant do anything besides maybe converting us to dogs if they get pissed off. But that will take a million years. So why bother?

Coming to the question most Christians ask, can we accept both theories (evolution and creation) and live happily? No! We cant please God and the devil. You cannot be here and there. Something cannot be both black and white. And grey is neither by the way. I feel our belief about our origin and our destiny is fundamental to our faith. How can you believe you will go to heaven after you die if you think you have come from apes? What amazes me is that a belief in evolution has created doubts in creation. Why isn't a belief in creation creating doubts about evolution?

To conclude, evolution is a new religion in which time and chance are gods. Evolutionists have incredible faith is the chance and faith that they are ready to disregard the Word of God and science. Its your decision, do you wanna be a (unwitting) follower of the religion of time and chance?

Added on Feb15: I got a lot of questions about references for this post. Those who are interested should read the book named as credit for this post. It had hundreds of references to the things they talk about. This book is basically a compilation of all scientific publications against evolution. Its concise and easy to understand. If you wanna delve into any field more deeply, check out the references for that section
