Amazing Mistakes

My job requires me to write complex code to extract data, compile it into useful information, and build reports to display it in a format that decision-makers can utilize for the benefit of the company. Sometimes, I have to take computer code that was written by someone else and modify it to meet the current standards or add functionality. All of this has to be done under time constraints.

It would sure be interesting to copy the code back and forth to different computers over and over millions of times and test the resulting copies to see if new code had mistakes in it. Those mistakes would inevitably lead to new features and complexities that the decision-makers could use to provide sound direction for the company. I would even expect old code that is inefficient or obsolete to be removed automatically with the right amount of time-restraints added.

Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Copying mistakes and time restraints automatically leading to new code that fixes problems and complements existing code…riiiiiiight.

That’s exactly what we are told to believe when evolutionists tell us that random mutations (copying mistakes) and natural selection (restraints/pressure) are applied to DNA (code). Humans (and every other life form) are here because of an aggregation of copying mistakes…really?

The real story can be found in the Bible. The Ultimate Programmer said, “Let us make man in our image and in our likeness…And he formed the man out of the dust and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils.” Human beings have value not because we are the pinnacle of an accumulation of mistakes but because we are created in the Almighty’s image.


Calibration Conundrum

If you have a watch that runs too fast or too slow, how do you know? One of the best ways is to compare it to some standard time like your phone’s time…a time that has been calibrated correctly.

But if you happen to be on a Caribbean cruise or a camping trip or in the Amazon jungle where you do not have access to a correctly calibrated time piece, how can you determine if your watch is displaying the correct time?

I would contend that this second situation is what happens with measuring time from the deep past. Now the Bible as a historical document contends that the Earth is about 6000 years old, but we have been told that the earth is 4.5 billion years old, but the time measuring tools used to calculate this 4.5 billion years has never been calibrated with actual time passage on the scales about which they are claimed to provide accurate accounts. These tools are assumptions and extrapolations mixed with measurable calculations that sound like science.

One of the tools used is radiometric dating, and while there are numerous types of radiometric dating, they all have the same faulty assumptions:

  1. The original amount of radioactive element is not known
  2. The rate of decay is assumed never to have changed.
  3. The original amount of stable/daughter element is assumed to have started at zero

Another tool that has been used to “prove” that the earth is older than the Bible claims is Ice Cores from Greenland and the Antarctic. The cores have distinct layers in them, and it is assumed that each of these layers are annual layers. But these layers are clearly not annual layers since airplanes buried in 1942 were retried in 1990 after being buried under hundreds of layers over 250 feet of ice. The calibration for millions of years of ice cores is wrong.

To get the billions of years that scientists need to discredit the Bible as a historical document, they have to assume that the years took place in the calculations. But the calibration is faulty. It’s a conundrum for them.
