Henry Bauer: We have to be skeptical about what scientists say, because what scientists tell you is not necessarily the same as what science can tell you.

A selection of quotes from the interview

Henry Bauer: Right, thanks. I was turned on to science in high school and I studied chemistry and I taught chemistry and did research in chemistry [he is emeritus professor of chemistry and science studies, and emeritus dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, “Virginia Tech”]

Henry Bauer: Exactly, thank you. The thing is that even as science is accepted as being the hallmark of a true understanding, the fact of the matter is, the history of science shows quite clearly that scientific consensus, at any point in time, can’t be accepted as absolutely correct.

Ivy league profs warns of the vice of conformism: “Think for yourself”


This is a good sign.  Fifteen Ivy league professors have offered advice and a warning to students everywhere –to recapture the spirit of truthseeking and free debate. The message might just catch on, because although the young strive to conform to fashionable norms, approximately none of them want to be seen doing so. Who wants to be a the weak minded conformist?

The real bigots are those who fear open-minded enquiry…

It’s sad that it needs to be said, but we don’t train children to question fashionable truths and always look at both sides.

Our advice can be distilled to three words:

Think for yourself. Continue reading Ivy league profs warns of the vice of conformism: “Think for yourself”

History of The Druids of Ireland – by John Toland, publ. 1814

This is a short introductory video by Robert Sepehr about Ireland, Druids, and legends. The rest of this article consists of the Book by John Toland’s HISTORY OF THE DRUIDS. Its first 72 pages were edited from the scanned text copy I was able to obtain. UPDATE! I have now put Toland’s intro and biography at the end of the actual Book!

The book begins with a very interesting biography of the writer John Toland, an Irish Christian intellectual who troubled the churches of the British Kingdom and Academia with his revolutionary but enlightened writings.

Below the introduction and biography you will find a very well resources book about the history of the Irish Druids, what they were up to, what they believed, what their practice was, and more. Enjoy this very interesting book.

Does Recently (2012) Declassified Data Falsify Plate Tectonics?

FOR USE ONLY WITH FEATURE STORY, NOT FOR COMMERCIAL STOCK Bathymetric model of the North Atlantic. 3-D satellite and bathymetry model showing the topography of the Earth’s crust over the North Atlantic. Iceland (centre) sits on a central-oceanic ridge that is extremely volcanically active. Lava pushing up beneath this ridge forces the North American plate (left) and the Eurasian plate (lower right) apart. This process is known as plate tectonics. This image was created by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) using measurments from the ERS-1 satellite.

AP EDITOR INTRODUCTION: In the past ‘Continental Drift’ was not popular and considered a fairy tale. But then it was recently proven that indeed the continents had drifted away from each other. Therefore the ‘scientists’ were hard up to find a scientific solution to this phenomenon. And so they came up with “Plate tectonics” as a recent initial ‘explanation’ to the enigma of the continents looking like they fit together. Plate tectonics has certain components that are based on guesswork, like subduction for example. The “subduction” theory surmised that the continental plates would slip under other plates and bend downward and melt in the magma under the plates, where as at other places the plates would come and be formed from under other plates. Then comes along Dr. Smoot who mapped the earth’s entire ocean floor over 35 years and discovered that subduction does not happen at all, and the theory is bogus. WHY do Darwinian scientists hold on to the theory? Because the only other theory that is observed and does make sense is the so-called ‘Hydroplate Theory’ of Dr. Walt Brown, but blasted, “Brown is a creationist.” Voila! That’s why they hold on to a disproven theory. Enjoy Dr. Walt Brown’s And Smoot’s explanation:

By Dr. Walt Brown

Ocean floors constitute 70% of earth’s solid surface. They were largely unexplored between 1957 and 1970, when the plate tectonic (PT) theory was developed. It was frequently said that we knew more about Mars than about the ocean floor. As a result, the PT theory, which primarily attempts to explain features on the ocean floor, was developed in the blind, without the data needed to formulate it or test it. Why then was plate tectonics accepted with enthusiasm?

A Brewing Crisis. Before PT, the only theory that tried to explain earth’s major surface features was the 1912 continental drift theory. It claimed, as its name implies, that the amazing and obvious jig-saw fit of the east coast of the Americas with the west coast of Europe and Africa is because the continents drifted apart. No one knew why a supercontinent broke apart or how the pieces could move. Did thousands of miles of solid rock plow through thousands of miles of solid rock? Why couldn’t the earth-science experts explain the fit that the public could plainly see? (You who have read pages 110434, now understand all that—and much more.)

“Live Science” Finds Canaanite DNA in the Lebanese But Replaces Patriarch Canaan With a Darwinist “Stone Age Hunter Gatherer”

Live Science Magazine reported that English archaeologists did indeed discover an overwhelming genetic similarity between the Canaanites of around 1500 BC and modern day Lebanese. They were so surprised! How inane and a-scientific can Darwinians get! We could have told them that fact without an expensive DNA test.

If they had read all the ancient chronicles and historians from that time and onward, they would have easily known and not been surprised at all, that they indeed descended from their patriarch Canaan!, and that not just because “Moses & Joshua wrote about it“, but these ‘scientists’ despise simple Euhemerist explanations!

Evidence Accumulates for Ancient Transoceanic Voyages, Says Geographer

An expert’s journey across controversial gap in history of the New World

By Tara MacIsaac, Epoch Times| June 8, 2016 AT 1:47 PM

Theories on the fringe of science sometimes slowly work their way into the core as the evidence accumulates.

“A classic example is the continental drift [theory],” said cultural geographer Stephen C. Jett, professor emeritus at the University of California–Davis. “In 1955, if you believed in continental drift, you were laughed at. In 1965, if you didn’t believe in continental drift, you were laughed at.”

He was a geography student while this dramatic change in opinion occurred, and he took the example to heart. Encouraged by a professor of his at Johns Hopkins University, Jett started a decades-long investigation into another controversial theory.

Diffusionism

Mainstream anthropology and archaeology holds that Norse expeditions around 1000 A.D. were the only ones to make it to the New World before Christopher Columbus landed in the 15th century. But on the fringes are multiple theories about other successful pre-Columbian expeditions. These theories are placed under the umbrella of “diffusionism.” Continue reading Evidence Accumulates for Ancient Transoceanic Voyages, Says Geographer

‘Carbon-14-dated dinosaur bones less than 40,000 years old’ report scrapped from conference website

Carbon-14-dated dinosaur bones are less than 40,000 years old. Researchers have found a reason for the puzzling survival of soft tissue and collagen in dinosaur bones – the bones are younger than anyone ever guessed.  Carbon-14 (C-14) dating of multiple samples of bone from 8 dinosaurs found in Texas, Alaska, Colorado, and Montana revealed that they are only 22,000 to 39,000 years old.

Members of the Paleochronology group presented their findings at the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 13-17, a conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS).

Since dinosaurs are thought to be over 65 million years old, the news is stunning – and more than some can tolerate.  After the AOGS-AGU conference in Singapore, the abstract was removed from the conference website by two chairmen because they could not accept the findings.  Unwilling to challenge the data openly, they erased the report from public view without a word to the authors.  When the authors inquired, they received this letter:

“There is obviously an error in these data. The abstract was apparently noot reviewed properly and was accepted in error. For this reason  we have exercised our authority as program chairs and rescinded the abstract .. will no longer appear on the AOGS web site.” Minhan Dai & Peter Swart.

They did not look at the data and they never spoke with the researchers.  They did not like the test results, so they censored them. Continue reading ‘Carbon-14-dated dinosaur bones less than 40,000 years old’ report scrapped from conference website

The Occurrence of South American Cocaine in Egyptian Mummies New research provides strong evidence for a trans-Atlantic dispersal by humans

By Dominique Görlitz Technische Univerität Dresden, Institut für Kartographie, GermanyAlthough this thorough research article proving pre-Columbian contacts across the Atlantic is very much anchored in a Darwinian paradigm that prohibits that very contact, we have included it in our site, because it is such a great illustration how emipircal research is so handicapped by the prevailing Darwinian paradigm with all the reuslting terminology like “neo-lithic, paleo-lithic, stone age, holocene, pre-history, early Man, evolutionary function,” etc. The very essence of this research is Görlitz’ effort to rhyme “impossible” pre-Columbian cross-Atlantic travel with the biological evidence that the ancient Egyptians had access to South American Cocaine and even the insects that came with it!

In our very strong proven NON-Darwinian paradigm here in Ancient Patriarchs ancient cross-oceanic sea travel, is no problem whatsoever! It is A FACT supported by very strong evidence of the early Sea-kings, the deified Flood survivors and their offspring who navigated the entire globe, left megaliths everywhere, and like Atlas, early on trigonometrically geo-measured the Earth by the stars, as evidenced by the Giza pyramid in which the Earth’s dimensions were recorded already around 2200 BC.
But because the academic elite & authorities insist on maintaining the Darwinian status Quo and to propagandize the masses with this false unproven notion that species descended from other species over billions of years, all in order to promote and forcibly implant their materialistic ideology on the masses to deny the Creator, therefore good scientists like Dominique Görlitz, have to kowtow to this elite and their 150 year old paradigm, not only to survive as a scientist in their institutions, but also to gain any respect or opportunity to publish!
Regardless, Dominique has done amazing research which totally supports our persecuted, ridiculed, and maligned true NON– Darwinian take on the world”s history, with amazing facts, and we applaud his astuteness, honesty, and courage in daring to rock the outdated Darwinian paradigm boat! God bless you, Dominique Görlitz. Kudos! People, enjoy his PhD paper!

The Open-Access Journal for the Basic Principles of Diffusion Theory, Experiment and Application. The Occurrence of Cocaine in Egyptian Mummies – New research provides strong evidence for a trans-Atlantic dispersal by humans – Dominique Görlitz Technische Univerität Dresden, Institut für Kartographie, Germany (received 22 May 2016, accepted 29 June 2016) [AP: Bolds are ours]

Abstract

One of the unsolved problems of modern science is whether the pre-Columbian peoples of the New World developed completely independently of cultural influences from the Old World or if there
was a trans-oceanic contact? A number of scientists agree that there are many – and often remarkable – similarities between the cultures of pre-Columbian America and those of the Mediterranean world. Nevertheless, there is no agreement, as yet, on how cultural diffusion can be differentiated from independent invention. Scientific analysis shows that scholarly positions are often strongly pre-formed from paradigms (scientific based assumptions), which tend to hinder consideration of solid scientific data offered by geo-biology and its trans-disciplinary examination of the subject under investigation here. 
An unambiguous answer to the question, what historical processes led to the emergence of the ancient American agriculture, hasn’t been given. However, the archaeological discovery of crops with clear trans-oceanic origin, in addition to advances in molecular biology, increasingly support the hypothesis that humans from the distant past influenced each other across the oceans at a much earlier stage.

The Role of Bias in the Origins Debate – Video by Brian Forbes + Powerpoint

By Brian Forbes

I aim to show that any evidence presented to us will invariably take a back seat to the fertility of the soil in our hearts. It is our bias that determines what we are able to see and accept for evidence.

Bias defined:  An emotional inclination to a particular view. Bias will often influence how you accept or reject evidence. Any position that has allowed for human evaluation will include bias. The question is not if there is bias. The question is what does your bias support. …and I can prove it.

Science is supposed to be based in objectivity – raw facts that lead to unemotional conclusions. The scientific method can be traced through:

  • René Descartes – who rid his mind of all bias
  • Francis Bacon – who described science in terms of cause and effect (experiments)
  • Karl Popper – falsifiability

They defined how we can know things without appealing to feeling. They set limits for “science” or knowledge. If it ain’t falsifiable,
it ain’t science. WATCH! Continue reading The Role of Bias in the Origins Debate – Video by Brian Forbes + Powerpoint

New Research: Dinosaur bones only tens of thousands years old, not millions!

Well, the REAL research results are in, and guess what, it’s of course studiously ignored by mainstream ‘historians’, ‘biologists’, and media naturally!  Empirical research from the ‘Georgia Center of Applied Isotope Studies’ on the collagen breakdown of dinosaur bones has come to the (for us not so) startling conclusion that dinosaurs are only at the most some tens of thousands years old, not millions.

Wasn’t the “65 million yr. old extinction” of the ‘dinos’ – for 5 millennia called dragons! – the first building block of Darwinian morphology of species, as promoted in the 18 hundreds by English banker scion John Lubbock?  Well it seems, metaphorically speaking, that this “rusted  T-Ford” of supposed “Macro-Evolution” on which all later ‘evolutionary models’ were based ostensibly, appears to still stand around,  in an old weed-overgrown garage from the roaring twenties, rather than in some mythical prehistory that never existed.
