The question for day 4 was: What is your favorite creation science topic?
The posts are now going up much earlier in the day, which may have something to with how today the total comments, minus Dr Forlow’s, are up from 40 to fifty six. Also, none of these are from Dr Shorey for once, which may be related to the short visit to this blog by someone from the ‘Institue’ earlier today, which mostly focused around the IEE stuff and included such highlights as the Spam and Censorship post (but not the followup) and all of these competition posts in reverse order. If you’re feeling particularly nosy a screenshot of their full path is here. [Edit: I’m blind – he posted as ‘Chris Shorey’ about soft tissues in dinosaurs. So much for the search box…]
Personally, I’m quite interested in Jeffery Tomkins’ genome-wide genetic similarity research. He reported in the latest Acts & Facts that a “very conservative estimate of human-chimp DNA similarity genome-wide is 86.4 to 88.9 percent,” which sounds fairly reasonable and not unexpected, so it will be interesting to see how the ICR attempts to spin this as supporting their initial position that the claimed similarity was a “myth.”
More generally speaking, I do quite like the times when this or that geologic process is explained via Flood Geology – the shoehorning is quite funny.
The winner will receive a copy of Geologic Processes, part of the Science Education Essentials series of teacher supplements that predate the blog itself. the next verse is:
On the first day of Christmas, Dr Forlow gave to me…
Made in His Image
Big Book of History
And Climbers and Creepers
Unfortunately, it doesn’t fit any pattern particularly well. But that doesn’t matter.
The winner for yesterday, Rebecca Holt, came two minutes before midnight, writing:
We are doing some gifts (animals,Bibles) thru World Vision;Gospel for Asia; & Bibles for Africa ….the boys idea when they saw the catalog on the table!
Of some interest is a comment from ‘Bel’, who asked:
Not sure what “Christmas Spirit” means…. We are never told to remember His birth, but His death, burial,and resurrection. It does seem good that His birth is celebrated to at least bring the virgin birth
to peoples mind, even if lots don’t believe it. I like to support the feeding of homeless people at the mission, both at Thanksgiving, and Christmas. My 18 grandchildren and 14 great grands probably wonder why Nana doesn’t give them presents now, and only on their birthdays. Blessings and thanks to the ICR for their valuable ministry!!!!!
Dr Forlow responded to that comment with a simple “Thank you Bel.”
