What is “Admissible Evidence” for a Hypothesis…?

Friday, December 21st, 2007

We noticed last time that “science” is unwilling to allow for an intelligent designer, no matter where the facts are leading. I say “unwilling” rather than “unable” because I think the rules that govern the permissibility of evidence in science are questionable or unintentionally biased.

But let’s be fair. Scientists are proud of science being a testable, provable, repeatable process of learning; as we all should be. And evolutionists would say that it is necessary to exclude anything other than natural explanations precisely because they are not provable and testable. But the question then arises, what exactly does it mean to be provable or testable?

Take gravity  something we can’t see. I can drop a set of keys and it will always go down. Is that what makes it provable? Or is it because I can quantify its speed as it falls? Is that what makes it testable? Why can’t things we can see, such as the widespread existence of symmetry and function as evidence? Do I have to measure the frequency of it to legitimize it? What governs the admissibility of it as evidence? Why should it be denied as evidence when it never used to be?

If I wanted to determine if a ship, car or plane (something we’ll pretend none of us has ever seen) was designed or had evolved, it would seem reasonable to include the following observations or facts:

  • It has a complex system to convert fuel to energy.
  • It needs functioning almost frictionless, symmetrical propeller, wheel or wing assemblies.
  • They are aerodynamically fit for the environment they use.
  • Perfectly fitting seats (seemingly designed for a human) in a beautiful, red Lamborghini or the luxurious housing area of sleek yacht.

So let’s compare that with what we see in the animal kingdom; perhaps a fish, cheetah or a parrot. We very quickly see that the same facts that convince us that the mechanical object was designed are seen in the animals.

  • It has a complex system to convert fuel to energy.
  • It needs functioning almost frictionless, symmetrical fins, leg or wing assemblies.
  • They are aerodynamically fit for the environment they use.
  • Peacocks, swans, leopards, polar bears, colorful fish on a stunning reef.

From one type of animal to another, we see beauty, grace, strength, and suitability to their environment, designs, symmetry and patterns. Now tell me again why these facts are not admissible as evidence that these living objects were designed? Why can’t science let facts lead us to whatever hypothesis seems the most logical? Why is it logical to deduce that a complex, aerodynamically perfect jet fighter was designed by an intelligent being and the living version of a hawk, is not?

Internationally known Cy(lops) Cat and her Amazing Story

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

In early 2006, the Associated Press created a media frenzy over a one-eyed cat named Cy. Due to the limited information being rehashed over thousands of newspapers and web sites around the world, it left people wanting to know more about Cy’s story. Some have written us and asked, “What did the original owner Traci Allen think when she first discovered Cy?” “Why did the Lost World Museum want Cy?” “What is Cy’s significance? “How did she end up with one eye?” “Can I visit her?”

These questions necessitated the production of informational Cy cards. The set of 3 cards tell the full story. Each of the three cards has a different photo of Cy when she was alive. These three photos are the only ever taken during Cy’s 24 hour short life. The original photos were extracted directly from the former cat owner’s camera memory stick. This allowed the images used to be the absolute highest quality reproductions of Cy available. These full color 6″x9″ cards are a perfect attention getting conversation starter on the evolution creation debate that continues to reverberate in the blogs and more recently on national TV.

Evolutionists insist that all life is the result of “millions of beneficial chance mutations” that happened over millions of years — yeah, those mutations really worked well for Cy Kitty!

What good is a One-Eyed Dino?

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

If evolution was really true, we would have dug up fossils of all sorts of ancient animals who would have started out with only 1 eye, and then they would have later mutated themselves a 2nd eye! We would find fossils of 1-eyed T-rexes, 1-eyed giant beavers, 1-eyed giant kangaroos, etc. — but we don’t! Bilateral organs, like eyes prove that evolution is a LIE — because if mutation and evolution were really true, then it only makes sense that any given life form would just mutate only 1 of any given organ, like an eye at first, and then later it would mutate the 2nd one! The Cy Kitty is just a reminder that mutating any organ, in any way, is going to be harmful to the life of the animal, yet evolutionists rely upon literally millions of mutations to have formed all life — and it’s impossible!

Cy The One-Eyed Cat Joins the Lost World Museum

Thursday, April 6th, 2006


Many of you are here because of all the media hype surrounding the Cyclops kitten. Well, yes, we did acquire it from owner Traci Allen of Redmond, Oregon and YES it is real and not a Photoshop hoax. Allow me to give the reason for our interest in this cute mutant…

How we “evolved” :
Evolution states that millions of mutations over millions of years with the help of environmental pressures can lift a species from the ape like creature we call Lucy to us today.

Question #1 Do positive mutations exist?  Mutations, like Cy, are either neutral or negative, never positive. Then how can mutations be a genetic building block to a successful “next step” in evolutionary process?

Questions #2 Can mutations, given enough time and chance, really produce greater intelligence, reason, speech and even spirituality to beings? Is it easier to believe that we came from Adam and Eve and not Lucy and Steve?
Either way it requires faith because we did not observe Adam created from the dust of the earth, Nor did we see Lucy walking about to know for sure if she was a monkey or a person in an evolving state. Allow me to go further and state, w
e have not directly observed evolution produce a lung from a gill,  nor a arm from a fin.

Cy will be on display at the Lost World Museum.     As the Museum’s spokes animal, Cy will assist in the understanding process of what evolution postulates about the theory of life and contrast that idea with what creationism states as to the answer to the origins question. Where did we come from?
