Spiders: God’s Filter Technicians?

A diagram of the web of the spider Nephila clavipes, which is being focussed on in the paperBrian Thomas writes Magnetic Spider Webs Attract Scientists’ Attention. He means electrical, not magnetic, but we’ll forgive him that one and move on.

Spider webs have electrical properties that help them attract insects: a paper last year noted that positively charged objects are more attracted to the silk than neutral objects. This is unsurprising, as weak electrostatic charges build up all the time simply from different materials rubbing together. Thomas says: Continue reading

Elements Are Dependable across the Universe

….and this is “evidence for creation” how?

Arguably this is just evidence for the reliability of scientific methods of dating the universe. The ICR gave up on c-decay as an explanation for the starlight problem some time ago, hence their current rejection of the possibility of everyday changes in physical laws. Basically, this is just a justification for future uses of goddidit:

Processes today operate primarily within fixed natural laws and relatively uniform process rates, but since these laws were themselves originally created and are daily maintained by their Creator, there is always the possibility of miraculous intervention in these laws or processes by their Creator.

Aside from that, the rest of the article is pretty accurate.

So, now for the next category: “The Earth Was Uniquely Created“…
