    Science…What is Science?
         February 28th is “Science Day” for most of the world.  But, not in America.  In America, Science Day is November 9th.   Science Day did not begin in America…but in India, in 1928, in honor of Physicist Dr. Raman.  Dr. Raman made the discovery of what is known as the “Raman Effect,” where photons of light were shown to scatter—or be separated.  On this day each year, I think it is good to reflect on exactly how we determine what is real and true “Science,” and what is only theory and belief.  Real and true science requires hard evidence which can be tested and verified.  Theories are fine, but until they are supported with hard evidence which can be tested and verified, they remain only theories and beliefs.  Dr. Raman’s theories were tested and verified, and he won the Noble Prize for his work.  Today, in the world, many theories have been elevated to scientific fact even though they cannot be tested or verified.  One of these areas of science concerns life, and long time periods for evolution, as opposed to life being created, and not needing long time periods.

    Evolution, Global Warming, & GOD
    “Science Day” in America is November 9th.  In most of the world, “Science Day” is February 28th, to honor Physicist Dr. Raman.  Dr. Raman, from India, in 1928,  made the discovery of what is known as the “Raman Effect,” where photons of light were shown to scatter—or be separated.  What makes science science?  It doesn’t matter whether you are a person of faith in God, or an atheist…we all approach science with a worldview (paradigm).  Up until my mid-thirties, I trusted in science way more than Jesus.  My worldview (or paradigm of life), was shaped by the education I had received up to that time.  Academics can be very influential in a person’s life, because they speak with authority which comes from years of study.  I had graduated from college after attending several different colleges over a period of about 12 years, as well as having obtained a Federal Electronics License as a result of my military training.  I had learned to trust in science because of its validity, due to actual hard evidence.  I did not stop believing in Jesus…I just couldn’t reconcile how the Bible could be so different from science concerning origins.  Therefore, I never fully trusted in Jesus, or the Bible, and I never thought it important to be part of Christianity or any church.  I thought of the Bible as a philosophy of life…not as absolute truth.

  • Index Fossils

    How are rock layers really dated? Not by radiometric dating as many assume. Radiometric dating is used to corroborate the “assumed” age, after an age has been assigned. The rock layers are originally dated by the “index fossils” found in them. Radiometric dating gives such a wide range of ages that it can only be used after the general age has been already identified. Index fossils are fossils not observed very often in other layers of rock. 99% of fossils are found commonly in many rock layers, whereas there are a few rare fossils that are mostly confined to a single rock layer (although they can be observed in layers earlier and later in presumed age as well). If one finds an “index fossil,” then they assume that layer dates to the age of that fossil. So, how are these fossils dated? The truth is that it is evolutionary “theory” which is used to date these fossils, not the rocks they are found in. The rocks are dated by the index fossils which are theorized to have evolved in a certain age. There is no way of dating fossils, or rocks, with any reasonable accuracy. In fact, when mDNA (mitochondrial DNA passed down through generations only by the female), is available to be used as a dating technique by comparing it to mutation rates through time, it has been found that actual scientific evidence points to a young age, and no long ages of evolution are shown for various life forms.
