Creation - still speaks of the Creator

In May 2002, my wife Saskia and I had the privilege of
ministering at a conference in Nottingham, England. Whilst there we listened to
the teaching of some fantastic ministries -– including the director of Creation
Research Institute International John McKay. I was so blessed by the information
shared that I came home to New Zealand with a real desire to understand more
about Gods marvellous creation. I would strongly recommend you keep in touch
with John's ministry itinerary (internet) and get along to hear him speak when
he visits your part of the world.

GECKO'S TOES USE ATOMIC FORCES according to a report in Nature,
Vol. 405, p681. Geckos are small tropical reptiles whose ability to walk up
walls and across ceilings has previously defied all attempts to explain how they
could stick to any surface with no sign of any glue or suction mechanism to hold
them on. A group of biologists and engineers studied the microscopic hairs on
gecko toes and found the ends of the hairs attach directly to molecules in the
walking surface by van der Waal's force, a type of attraction between atoms. The
scientists end their report with the comment that engineering a structure like
the gecko foot is presently "beyond the limits of human technology".
They express the hope that the "natural technology of gecko foot-hairs can
provide biological inspiration for future design of a remarkably effective
adhesive."

Editor's comment: If manufacturing gecko foot-hairs is
beyond intelligent human engineers, it is certainly beyond blind, ignorant
chance. The more we look into the precision engineering found in living things
the more we are reminded of the Apostle Paul's warning that human beings who
study the created world are without excuse for ignoring the Creator. (Romans
1:20) (Ref. Gecko, design, van der Waals)

FOSSIL TREASURE TROVE found in Chubut, Argentina has
intrigued palaeontologists, according to New Scientist, 24 February,
2001, p13. Researchers found several types of dinosaur and were surprised to
find frog, fish, turtle, small mammal and plant fossils all buried together.

Editor's comment: Such a rich and varied collection of
fossils is not unique. Many dinosaurs, including Australia's Muttaburrasaurus,
have been found buried with remains of land and sea creatures and plants.
Evolutionists usually claim fossil deposits represent live environments that
were buried one after the other. They add up the "time" it took to
establish each environment to prove the earth is very old. However, everyone
knows frogs, turtles, fish and small mammals do not live in the same place. Such
mixed deposits are much better explained as resulting from a large scale flood
which has swept across varied environments, picking up many creatures, mixing,
then dumping them. Every dinosaur deposit we have visited has been a mixed flood
deposit! (Ref. dinosaurs, flood deposit)

YET ANOTHER "EARLY HUMAN FOSSIL" has been
unearthed in Ethiopia according to a report in Nature Vol 412, p178. The
fossil consists of seven bone fragments and four teeth, and has been named "Ardipithecus
ramidus"
. This is not the first specimen to be given this name but it is
claimed to be one and a half million years older than previously discovered
specimens. Scientists believe Ardipithecus is a link between humans and
chimpanzees, but it may be more like a chimp than a human, writes Henry Gee for Nature
Science Update (same issue). Another article by Gee (p131, same issue) reports
that "Fossil evidence of human evolutionary history is fragmentary and open
to various interpretations. Fossil evidence of chimpanzee evolution is absent
altogether."

Editor's comment: The suffix "-pithecus" is
latin for "ape". Any fossil named "x-pithecus" is simply a
dead x-ape, and provides no evidence for the origin of humans. As for fossil
chimpanzees being non-existent, some of the fossils paraded as human ancestors
are really dead chimpanzees. The most famous "-pithecus" specimen,
Lucy (Australopithecus) had a chimp sized brain, chimp shaped rib cage
and jaw bone, and arms and legs that indicate it walked like a chimp.

The bones and teeth described in Nature consist of
"11 hominid specimens (which) have been recovered at 5 localities since
1997." One specimen is a toe bone found in 1999 about 16km (10 miles) from
the other bones and is listed as .6 million years younger than all the other
bones which average 5.8 million years. On the basis of this bone many
evolutionists claim the creature walked on two legs. Even if this bone did come
from a two legged creature, it certainly did not belong with any of the other
bones and so cannot prove they came from an upright walking creature.
