Intelligent Design

Some people are not aware of a competing theory of origins with arguably better explanatory power than Darwinian evolution.  It is known as the theory of Intelligent Design or ID.  ID theory starts with the empirical evidence of nature and seeks to ascertain what inferences can be drawn from that evidence. Unlike Creationism, the scientific theory of Intelligent Design does not claim that modern biology can identify whether the intelligent cause detected through science is supernatural.  One of the key tenets of Intelligent Design is the idea of irreducible complexity.

Take a look at this short video about the Kinesin.  This is a sub-cellular machine that is clearly designed and irreducibly complex.  How could the feet have just evolved in a step-wise manner?  Can any reasonable person conclude this tiny transport machine in a cell just appeared by molecules coming together though random chance, even over billions of years of randomness?  That is what the Darwinists would have us believe even if there is no evidence in nature of anything with this level of "apparent design" occurring through random chance.  Darwinism is a dead end scientifically now that we have so much evidence of design inside of the cell.  Too bad the Darwinist propagandists aren't willing to leave their beloved paradigm and embrace better science.

Programming of Life

This informative documentary on information science, cellular biology, and probability clearly explains why anyone with critical thinking skills and common sense will reject as unreasonable the idea that the origin of life was from chemicals randomly coming together. It amazes me that rational people can still believe in Darwinian evolution when information science, sub-cellular biology, and probability theory clearly show that this is simply unreasonable. Some day the dogma of Darwinism will be replaced by a more intelligent view of origins. I'm still amazed it is taking so long.

The Biggest Baddest Bubble of Them All

Gas is cheap right now. I heard on the news the other night that here in Texas gas may dip below the $2/gallon mark. Stocks are up. People believe we are coming out of the so called "Great Recession." Life seems good for many people, including all the illegal immigrants that Obama recently welcomed into the U.S.A. in flagrant violation of any sense of fairness to the millions of immigrants who are trying to go through legal processes to obtain their U.S. citizenship.

Good times may be the perception, but the reality is we're on the cusp of another huge financial bubble that is about to pop. It is the biggest, baddest bubble in all history. The U.S. Government debt has now topped $18 Trillion - with a capital "T". Most people cannot comprehend a billion, much less a trillion dollars. The fiscal irresponsibility of the U.S. Congress running something like 54 years of deficits in a row, with the short exception of a few years under Clinton, is going to eventually come home to roost.  All of that deficit spending has created a debt that cannot ever be paid, and even the interest on this debt is big enough that it will bankrupt the U.S.A. when interest rates rise.  And rise they will.  Inflation has already happened.  The Fed has already increased the money supply which is the definition of inflation.  When the Fed runs out of tactics to hide inflation, interest rates will inevitably rise.  When the $18+ Trillion in debt has to be refinanced at higher interest rates, the Ponzi scheme will become unsustainable.

This is not a problem for our grandchildren. In order to pay the interest on the debt, the Obama administration has presided over the largest inflationary actions in recorded history. The U.S. Treasury has been forced to issue $1,040,965,000,000 (that's over $1 trillion) in new debt since fiscal 2015 started just eight weeks ago in order to raise the money to pay off Treasury securities that were maturing and to cover new deficit spending by the government.  Count how many times the reporter in the video below says "train wreck."
