Scientific evidence proving evolution cannot be responsible for life on earth
Impossible Truths showcases the classic, provocative von Däniken theories for a new generation. For more than four decades, Erich von Däniken has been elaborating his astounding thesis that the inhabitants of other planets have kept in contact with humanity since the earliest times and that they are still communicating with us today. In this book he presents new eyewitness proof of extraterrestrial activity, as well as evidence from expert informants that has remained secret until now. He also highlights the findings of new research that he has been able to undertake as previously inaccessible areas have opened up, such as the jungle city of “Buritaca 200” (Ciudad Perdida) in Colombia. It was once thought that only the ancient Nazca people of Peru scraped gigantic images in the ground. Now, thanks to Erich von Däniken, we know that this is a phenomenon seen all over the world, from Jordan and Saudi Arabia to Chile and Mexico: immense circles and wheels, mile-wide images that look like dragons or supernatural beings with rays extending from their heads. “When will people finally grasp the global basis of the Nazca phenomenon?” asks von Däniken. He believes these ancient geoglyphs were created as messages to the gods, to signal to the extraterrestrial beings that people had seen with their own eyes moving about the sky. More than 150 full-colour photographs substantiate von Däniken’s theories and let the reader assess for themselves the stunning visual evidence. These spectacular findings will teach us how to be truly amazed again.
A compilation of the basics of the debate as to the origins of the universe: evolution vs. intelligent design. For children and adults. Because the brain learns best by seeing a concept pictorially and then reinforcing that concept with a written explanation, the concepts regarding special creation vs. the theory of evolution are stated simply, illustrated, and easily grasped in the first part--followed by more meaty explanations and statements of implications in part 2, and then a review with lots of questions and object lessons in the third section of the book.
Published in 1919: The author discusses the development of Humanity from Evolution to Civilisation to the birth of Nations and European Liberations.
Modularity in Development and Evolution offers the first sustained exploration of modules from developmental and evolutionary perspectives. Contributors discuss what modularity is, how it can be identified and modeled, how it originated and evolved, and its biological significance. Covering modules at levels ranging from genes to colonies, the book focuses on their roles not just in structures but also in processes such as gene regulation. Among many exciting findings, the contributors demonstrate how modules can highlight key constraints on evolutionary processes. A timely synthesis of a crucial topic, Modularity in Development and Evolution shows the invaluable insights modules can give into both developmental complexities and their evolutionary origins.
This essay sheds light on how science proves that the theory of evolution is impossible and also elucidates why humans can never evolve from mutations transpiring. Moreover, how humans can be augmented by becoming cyborgs is delineated in this essay. In spite of what you were indoctrinated to believe, it is not only easier than anytime in history to utilize science to vindicate the existence of God, the quintessential, divine creator and master of the multiverse, but it is also easier to disprove the illogical theory of evolution. Human beings were created by God and are sheer and utter consciousness as multidimensional, spiritual beings who vicariously experience this simulated reality through their earthly avatars, receivers, vessels, or bodies as most people like to call them. Humans were created by God and have profusely devolved overtime from mutations transpiring. Mutations are always deleterious and are never beneficial to the human species. Mutations always cause you to lose genetic information and never gain genetic information. The theory of evolution makes the irrational contention that mutations are beneficial, when in fact the polar opposite is true. The occurrence of mutations is never salubrious, but rather is always deleterious. Mutations to the genes are always adverse changes which bastardizes the original genetic code. A human being's earthly vessel can never organically change it something outside the parameters of its DNA in this simulation. If the human genome can be thought of as a book then the occurrence of a mutation can always be thought of as outright ripping a chapter out of a book, hence bastardizing the original genetic code and devolving the earthly vessel of the being. Humans are a maladaptive species that can never possess the ability to physically evolve in this simulated reality, because unlike the fictitious Pokemon characters, human beings only have the anatomy to physically devolve into lesser humans beings if they succumb to genetic mutations. These genetic mutations cause humans beings to loose more and more of their original, sacrosanct genetic code and bastardizes their genomes. In other words, genetic mutations will always adversely impinge on your original genetic code in all facets and will devolve you as you loose more and more of your irreplaceable genetic code in this simulated reality. Nothing salubrious nor fruitful can ever ensue from mutations transpiring. Another fallacy of the theory of evolution, beyond mutation being falsely perceived as beneficial, is the groundless notion that something can come from nothing. The contention that something can come from nothing in a cause and effect simulated reality does not make any rational sense. There is a cause behind every effect and every effect can be traced back to a cause. If this fallacy of life emerging from nothing were the case then humans would be spawning out of nowhere. In spite of its sheer asininity, most people mistakenly believe that humans can come from nothing and are not their own separate species. The theory of evolution is a groundless theory that does not offer a modicum of scientific merit in any facet. Human beings have devolved overtime due to the deleterious occurrence of genetic mutations. Moreover, humans beings do not have the anatomy to ever physically evolve in this simulated reality, unlike the fictitious Pokemon characters. Humans are a maladaptive species that are perhaps preordained to further devolve overtime as they succumb to more and more adverse genetic mutations due to living insalubrious lives fraught with calamitous issues that eminently impinge on their health, happiness, and well-being. In other words, humans are not even livings salubrious lives and it would behoove humans to focus on living salubrious lives which are conducive to optimizing their health so that they can safeguard the structural integrity of their sacrosanct genetic code and mitigate risks for mutations transpiring.
Most scholars dismiss research into the paranormal as pseudoscience, a frivolous pursuit for the paranoid or gullible. Even historians of religion, whose work naturally attends to events beyond the realm of empirical science, have shown scant interest in the subject. But the history of psychical phenomena, Jeffrey J. Kripal contends, is an untapped source of insight into the sacred and by tracing that history through the last two centuries of Western thought we can see its potential centrality to the critical study of religion. Kripal grounds his study in the work of four major figures in the history of paranormal research: psychical researcher Frederic Myers; writer and humorist Charles Fort; astronomer, computer scientist, and ufologist Jacques Vallee; and philosopher and sociologist Bertrand Méheust. Through incisive analyses of these thinkers, Kripal ushers the reader into a beguiling world somewhere between fact, fiction, and fraud. The cultural history of telepathy, teleportation, and UFOs; a ghostly love story; the occult dimensions of science fiction; cold war psychic espionage; galactic colonialism; and the intimate relationship between consciousness and culture all come together in Authors of the Impossible, a dazzling and profound look at how the paranormal bridges the sacred and the scientific.
Darwinian Evolution and Classical Liberalism brings together a collection of new essays that examine the multifaceted ferment between Darwinian biology and classical liberalism.
“I often said before starting, that I had no doubt I should frequently repent of the whole undertaking.” So wrote Charles Darwin aboard The Beagle, bound for the Galapagos Islands and what would arguably become the greatest and most controversial discovery in scientific history. But the theory of evolution did not spring full-blown from the head of Darwin. Since the dawn of humanity, priests, philosophers, and scientists have debated the origin and development of life on earth, and with modern science, that debate shifted into high gear. In this lively, deeply erudite work, Pulitzer Prize–winning science historian Edward J. Larson takes us on a guided tour of Darwin’s “dangerous idea,” from its theoretical antecedents in the early nineteenth century to the brilliant breakthroughs of Darwin and Wallace, to Watson and Crick’s stunning discovery of the DNA double helix, and to the triumphant neo-Darwinian synthesis and rising sociobiology today. Along the way, Larson expertly places the scientific upheaval of evolution in cultural perspective: the social and philosophical earthquake that was the French Revolution; the development, in England, of a laissez-faire capitalism in tune with a Darwinian ethos of “survival of the fittest”; the emergence of Social Darwinism and the dark science of eugenics against a backdrop of industrial revolution; the American Christian backlash against evolutionism that culminated in the famous Scopes trial; and on to today’s world, where religious fundamentalists litigate for the right to teach “creation science” alongside evolution in U.S. public schools, even as the theory itself continues to evolve in new and surprising directions. Throughout, Larson trains his spotlight on the lives and careers of the scientists, explorers, and eccentrics whose collaborations and competitions have driven the theory of evolution forward. Here are portraits of Cuvier, Lamarck, Darwin, Wallace, Haeckel, Galton, Huxley, Mendel, Morgan, Fisher, Dobzhansky, Watson and Crick, W. D. Hamilton, E. O. Wilson, and many others. Celebrated as one of mankind’s crowning scientific achievements and reviled as a threat to our deepest values, the theory of evolution has utterly transformed our view of life, religion, origins, and the theory itself, and remains controversial, especially in the United States (where 90% of adults do not subscribe to the full Darwinian vision). Replete with fresh material and new insights, Evolution will educate and inform while taking readers on a fascinating journey of discovery.
Did Jesus Believe Genesis? Scripture affirms that Jesus and the writers of the Bible did believe that Genesis was literally true. It is imperative that Christians get serious about teaching faith-affirming apologetics, especially for young people or they will continue to leave the church in ever increasing numbers. The theological modifications required for the acceptance of the biased assumptions and unproven 'facts' of evolution and the big bang and the denial of the Flood of Noah and the lives of the Patriarchs are vast and utterly disastrous for biblical Christianity. Scripture, science and archaeology affirm the truth of Genesis. The book is meant as a textbook to counteract the falseness presented in the classroom of secular and Christian universities.
Selected papers from a symposium in Budapest held June 29-July 3, 1987, are arranged in five parts: constraints in the origin of life and cellular organization, developmental constraints in evolution, genetical constraints in evolution, life history and evolution, and the shaping of the macroevoltuionary pattern. The 31 contributions are united by a common approach to the rigorous mathematical analysis and description of the processes of natural selection. Distributed by St. Martin's Press.

The purpose of this book is to present a new mechanistic theory of mutation-driven evolution based on recent advances in genomics and evolutionary developmental biology. The theory asserts, perhaps somewhat controversially, that the driving force behind evolution is mutation, with natural selection being of only secondary importance. The word 'mutation' is used to describe any kind of change in DNA such as nucleotide substitution, gene duplication/deletion, chromosomal change, and genome duplication. A brief history of the principal evolutionary theories (Darwinism, mutationism, neo-Darwinism, and neo-mutationism) that preceded the theory of mutation-driven evolution is also presented in the context of the last 150 years of research. However, the core of the book is concerned with recent studies of genomics and the molecular basis of phenotypic evolution, and their relevance to mutation-driven evolution. In contrast to neo-Darwinism, mutation-driven evolution is capable of explaining real examples of evolution such as the evolution of olfactory receptors, sex-determination in animals, and the general scheme of hybrid sterility. In this sense the theory proposed is more realistic than its predecessors, and gives a more logical explanation of various evolutionary events. Mutation-Driven Evolution is suitable for graduate level students as well as professional researchers (both empiricists and theoreticians) in the fields of molecular evolution and population genetics. It assumes that the readers are acquainted with basic knowledge of genetics and molecular biology.
The book presents a general overview of mathematical models in the context of evolution. It covers a wide range of topics such as population genetics, population dynamics, speciation, adaptive dynamics, game theory, kin selection, and stochastic processes. Written by leading scientists working at the interface between evolutionary biology and mathematics the book is the outcome of a conference commemorating Charles Darwin's 200th birthday, and the 150th anniversary of the first publication of his book "On the origin of species". Its chapters vary in format between general introductory and state-of-the-art research texts in biomathematics, in this way addressing both students and researchers in mathematics, biology and related fields. Mathematicians looking for new problems as well as biologists looking for rigorous description of population dynamics will find this book fundamental.
At the end of World War I in many European societies, hitherto hidden or suppressed rivalries and tensions between competing socioeconomic and ethnolinguistic groups burst to the surface in violence, revolution, civil conflict, and civil war. The author of this book attempts to make a contribution toward the unraveling of these phenomena by exploring them within the context of one European society, Finland, and analyzing the complex and intertwining relationships between revolution and civil war on the one hand and ethnolinguistic and socioeconomic cleavages on the other.
