Arks from the movie 2012. Note the massive waves crashing into these massive ships. How did the real Ark survive anything like that? Do you remember the year 2012? The year that the world was supposed to end, according to the Mayan calendar? Clearly, we survived that crisis. However, the fear and panic from that… Continue reading Trace Fossils, the Flood, and 2012
What is it? A rabbit or a duck? And why does it matter? Watch the video to find out. I have created another video about science and have put it on Rumble. It can be found here: https://rumble.com/v18gnpr-duck-rabbit-head-and-paleontology.html. It is about how scientists interpret the same facts but come up with conflicting interpretations. Thoughts from… Continue reading Duck-Rabbit Illusion and Science
A titanosaur skeleton as it appears in the American Museum of Natural History. I believe this reconstruction is a generalized giant titanosaur, which means it is a good example of how massive these dinosaurs could get. Fair warning, this is a long post. However, it details an interesting story, so I hope that you stick… Continue reading The Largest Dinosaur that Ever Existed?
The front of the Ark at the Ark Encounter. It is good to be reminded of how massive the Ark was. My family and I visited the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum recently. We went to a homeschool conference that was held at the Ark Encounter, but we were able to see the Museum,… Continue reading Different Reconstructions of Noah’s Family
Trees in the Bristlecone Pine Forest on White Mountain, California. Some of these trees are the oldest known (non-clonal) trees. I forgot about this argument. I watched the Ken Ham/Bill Nye debate when it happened back in 2014. I forgot about Bill Nye's rebuttal to a young Earth by stating that there were trees older… Continue reading The Oldest Trees and the Age of the Earth
Virtual reality simulates the world, typically attempting to mimic the real world. Can a simulation be so good that is looks exactly like reality? Can our reality itself be a simulation? Image from NASA Goddard Photos and Videos. In my last post, I showed how the conservation of energy and the conservation of momentum can… Continue reading Is Reality a Simulation?
Physics is an interesting science. It is the most rigorous of the sciences, and as such, most every observation, rule, or law in physics can be put in terms of math. We can then use this math to predict what would happen under specific circumstances. Take the collision of two objects, for example. There are… Continue reading Modelling a Collision
An illustration of Yangchuanosaurus attacking Mamenchisaurus, illustrated by Gregory S. Paul, from his book, Predatory Dinosaurs of the World. In my last post, I mentioned Gregory S. Paul's book, Predatory Dinosaurs of the World. Published in 1988, this book became a classic. It helped bring paleontology, especially paleontology relating to the theropod dinosaurs, to the… Continue reading A Blunder with a Huge Impact
This is Big Mike, a bronze statue replica of USMN 555000 (formerly MOR 555) at the Museum of the Rockies. Most people would call this a Tyrannosaurus rex, but a new article suggests that this is actually a Tyrannosaurus regina. Tyrannosaurus rex is one of the few dinosaurs that is known by its species name.… Continue reading Just one Tyrannosaurus, or three?
A reconstruction of Vectiraptor. Note the three bones in the reconstruction. These are the only bones found for this dinosaur. Image from Longrich, Nicholas; David Martill; and Megan Jacobs (2021) "A new dromaeosaurid dinosaur from the Wessex Formation (Lower Cretaceous, Barremian) of the Isle of Wight, and implications for European palaeobiogeography" Cretaceous Research 10.1016/j.cretres.2021.105123 Most… Continue reading Operational versus Historical Sciences
