It’s always a special treat to present a new essay by Jason Lisle. Regular readers know him best from the time he was at Answers in Genesis (AIG), ol’ Hambo’s online ministry, when we wrote several posts about Jason Lisle’s “Instant Starlight” Paper.
Jason left AIG a couple of years ago to become director of whatever it is that they call research at the Institute for Creation Research. The title of Jason’s latest is Creation Research Society Meets at ICR. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
ICR was very pleased to host the fifth annual Creation Research Society (CRS) conference this year July 31–August 1 in Dallas. Many attendees arrived early for a reception at ICR the evening before the conference began. It was a great time of fellowship with fellow scientists and others who hold the Word of God in high esteem. I always enjoy seeing old friends and making new ones.
Ooooooooooooooh — truly a gathering of giants! How thrilling it must have been! Jason tells us:
The CRS conference was a great opportunity for creation scientists to come together to present and discuss the latest research on the issue of origins. Topics of discussion included astronomy, geology, biology, and others. Several new models were presented, and some old models were challenged. It’s always exciting to see the latest research results in various disciplines.
The latest creation research — BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let’s read on:
Dr. Kevin Anderson opened the conference with a fascinating presentation summarizing the many discoveries of soft tissue in dinosaur remains.
Oh yeah, we’re familiar with that — see Dinosaur Fossils Found with Hot Red Meat? Jason continues:
A number of ICR researchers presented their latest findings. To select just two from many, Dr. Tim Clarey presented some of his preliminary results on megasequences — extensive sedimentary rock units that suggest the stages in which the global Flood occurred.
Wowie — geology will never the the same. Here’s more:
And Dr. Jeff Tomkins presented his research comparing the human genome with the chimpanzee genome. Most people don’t realize the extent of the evolutionary assumptions that have gone into constructing the chimp genome. Secular scientists have used the human genome as a guide to assemble chimpanzee DNA sequences based on the assumption of common ancestry. Dr. Tomkins is performing a de novo assembly of the chimpanzee genome and is researching more objective algorithms and methods by which human and ape genomes may be compared.
We eagerly await the results. Moving along:
I was intrigued by some of the information brought forth in my own field of astronomy. Wayne Spencer discussed the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect, by which the orientation of transiting extra-solar planets can be estimated. He showed that a substantial fraction of the planets so far discovered have an orbital plane that is highly tilted relative to their star’s rotation axis. Some even orbit “backward” — in the opposite direction that their star spins. This information is starkly contrary to secular expectations.
What’s the creationist assumption? How should Yahweh have those planets orbiting their stars? We’re not told.
Then Jason talks about Pluto, but we’ve written about that before — see Jason Lisle Drools Over Pluto. We’re getting near the end now. Here’s another excerpt:
What an exciting time to be a creationist!
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The rest of the article encourages you to join the Creation Research Society. If you’re interested, Jason’s article provides a link, but we’re quitting here.
