Here’s a brief, but interesting article on how scientists have yet again been bamboozled by something appearing where it shouldn’t. Their preconceived notions about how and when these “impossible rocks” form is the cause of their confusion.
The “impossible rocks” are massive quartzite rocks. They state that much of this island, including large portions of a mountain, is made of quartzite. This shouldn’t be because it is a volcanic island. One of the scientists (towards the end of the article) came up with a creative explanation for how this could have occurred, “millions of years ago”. I always love these explanations, which are neither observable or historical. Therefore, the explanation falls outside of the scientific method. Continue reading →
A giant “Siberian unicorn” was previously thought to have lived over 350,000 years ago is now thought to have gone extinct around 29,000 years ago. This means that they “may have roamed the Earth at the same time as humans”. They could have just asked me and I could have told them that all land animals were created on the sixth day of creation, which means they did exist at the same time as humans who were also created on day six.
There’s been a lot of buzz in the scientific community this month surrounding the detection of gravitational waves, a concept which was predicted by Albert Einstein about 100 years ago and is the last piece of Einstein’s theory of General Relativity to be proven. I have been following the story because of the religious implications it has. For years scientists have been trying to decide if the universe had a beginning or not (which is weird to me because it’s pretty obvious that it did). Even Stephen Hawking has changed his position on that issue several times. Without getting into a bunch of scientific mumbo jumbo, the discovery of gravitational waves settles the issue. The universe did have a beginning and now scientists have proof.
