The evidence for creationism continues to pile up — according to Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. The title of his new post is Study: Eye Contact Makes Baby’s Brain Waves Sync with Yours. It’s another example of what we call the Creationist Scientific Method:
Here are some excerpts from ol’ Hambo’s post, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The more we learn about God’s creation, the more we should be moved to worship and stand in awe of him — because his creation is amazing! It seems no matter where researchers look, or what kind of research they do, they discover layer upon layer of complexity. And researchers just discovered another layer of complexity to our brains.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Everything researchers find is evidence of creationism. Hambo says:
A recent study found that when adults and babies make eye contact, their brain waves actually fall in sync, giving them shared patterns of brain activity. This happens as brain waves “meet in the middle” — baby’s waves become more like the adult’s, and the adult’s become more like the baby’s. Scientists believe this may help babies and their caregivers communicate better.
He’s talking about an article in Science News: Staring into a baby’s eyes puts her brain waves and yours in sync. It’s a popularization of this paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: (PNAS) Speaker gaze increases information coupling between infant and adult brains, which you can read online without a subscription.
Interestingly, the first sentence of the PNAS paper says: “According to the social brain hypothesis, human brains have fundamentally evolved for group living.” Hambo doesn’t mention that hypothesis. Instead he declares:
Our brains really are incredible! And the more research that’s done, the more we realize what they are capable of. There’s no way our complex brains could come about by random chance processes — they clearly show the fingerprint of an Intelligent Designer. [Hambo’s capitalization.]
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] An Intelligent Designer! He continues:
And that Designer is the Creator God of the Bible, who has made us “fearfully and wonderfully” [scripture reference].
Amazing! That’s pretty much all Hambo has to say. He ends his brief post by promoting a DVD by one of his creation scientists, which you can buy for only $59.99:
You can learn more about the phenomenal, miraculous design of the human body — including the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems — in this DVD set from AiG’s Dr. David Menton, Body of Evidence [link omitted].
So there you are, dear reader — another splendid example of creation science. Isn’t it time you abandoned your sinful belief in evolution?
