Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands. Cults everywhere: Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from. It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?
Tempus Fugit Memento Mori - Time Flies Remember Death
Dr. D Russell Humphreys Phd Physics
[from p. 33, in Transformed by the Evidence]
Humphreys was a teenage 'science' prodigy, one of the top 40 young scientists in 1959, picked to compete in the USA National Westinghouse challenge. A son of an Atheist father and fallen-away Baptist mother he recalls being drenched with evolutionary theology, from Disney productions, to school text books, to 'collegial' world-view systems. He never seriously doubted the long-ages of the Darwinian universe; nor that pond scum became man by luck, chaos and those magical mutations. That is, until he started looking for evidence. Even endless brain-washing it appears, does not distort every mind.
'In three decades of study, I have only a few hundred physical processes that one could use to estimate the age of the earth. I have been continually astounded by the fact that over ninety percent of the processes favor an age much less than billions of years. Here are a dozen examples of the 90 percent majority of evidence pointing to a young world along with brief explanations:
The rapid accumulation of mud on the ocean floor, versus the slow removal of it by plate tectonic subduction.
The presence of carbon 14 well above the detection limit in all fossils......the decay half-life of carbon 14 is 5,730 years old, is so short that no carbon 14 atoms would be left in any fossil that was more than a million years old.
The great excess of helium still retained in tiny radioactive zircon crystals in the granite of the earth's crust...The helium diffusion age of deep-core samples of these zircons turned out to be 6000 (+-2000) years.
The rapid accumulation of sodium in the sea, versus its slow removal by various processes, such as the evaporation of shallow seas.
The rapid decay of energy stored in the earth's magnetic field, especially during the periods of very rapid direction reversals recorded in geological strata.
Evidence throughout the geologic strata of very rapid deposition of continent-scale sedimentary rocks by waters moving at meters per second – the events of a worldwide catastrophic flood.
Many multiple-layer fossils world-wide, such as fossil trees projecting through two or more strata. Conventional geology says a tree should rot away long before a second layer buries it.
Fossil 'graveyards' of billions of creatures buried in the sedimentary geologic strata throughout the world.
Evidence for tight folding and bending of large geologic strata while they were still wet and soft.
The presence of DNA and soft tissue, even in fossils, that are allegedly hundreds of millions of years old.
The extreme scarcity (thousands) of stone-age burial sites compared to the abundance (billions) of sites that should exist if the Stone Age had lasted 100,000 years or more.
The recentness of agriculture and recorded history, and the dispersion of people, civilization, and languages from a small region in the Middle East.'
When Humphreys began thinking for himself and doing his own research, he realized that his Atheist-Darwinian world view was a fraud. There was precious little science, and as he says, plenty of denial and non-science. The above list is a small fraction of what can be enumerated. Every item is passionately attacked by Darwinists, with their rhetoric and story telling. A personal favourite is that 'iron' acts on soft tissue to keep it supple and the DNA existent, for 70 million years. No proof of that claim is offered, just a few lab tests and plenty of hyperbole along with the usual sneering that if you deny the fable, you are anti-science.
The cult of science, and its Atheopathic world-view, including the myths of Darwinian evolution, have retarded, not enhanced, human understanding.
