Soft Dinosaur Tissue Looks Really Young!

Soft Dinosaur Tissue Looks Really Young! | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
In the end, then, while this study is an attempt to explain how soft tissue can avoid decomposition and fossilization over millions of years, the results provide even more evidence that the fossil tissues which were examined are only thousands of years old. I do hope more studies like this one are done so we can have a better idea of how much oxidation has taken place in dinosaur fossils. I predict that this will further strengthen the case that the fossils are not millions of years old.

Found: A Lake in Death Valley, the Hottest and Driest of the U.S. National Parks

Found: A Lake in Death Valley, the Hottest and Driest of the U.S. National Parks | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Death Valley National Park, which sprawls across the border of Nevada and California, is well known for its superlatives: It is the hottest, driest, and lowest of the U.S. national parks. So in early March 2019, when a lake suddenly appeared there, people were amazed and perplexed. How did this happen?

Continental margins formed rapidly during Flood runoff

Continental margins formed rapidly during Flood runoff | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

"Although few scientists address this issue, the continental shelf and slope are very difficult to explain within the uniformitarian (slow and gradual) paradigm. Non-catastrophic processes would favour a gradual descent of sediments to the ocean depths. There really should be no continental shelf or slope."

What Is an 'Ice Shove'?

What Is an 'Ice Shove'? | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Until it melts, ice often stays put where it forms. Under certain conditions, though, it goes on an adventure, advancing over land. It might plod or rush over sand, grass, and asphalt, or even seem to leap from the water like sharp, shiny salmon.
YEC Geo's insight:
Hard to believe these weren't a thing during the Ice Age.

Floating forest hypothesis fails to explain later and larger coal beds | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Recently, a new model for allochthonous coal formation has begun to be developed.1 This new model harkens back to, and is not too dissimilar from, the concepts of the early pioneers in creation science.

Paleosols can form faster than scientists think

Paleosols can form faster than scientists think | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

"The evidence for paleosols is equivocal. All soils have soil horizons, but with few exceptions paleosols lack a top organic horizon, one of the best indications of a buried soil. The claimed paleosol is most often only a clay layer, carbonate layer, a ‘weathered layer’, or a mudstone, which can easily be a depositional layer or a layer altered by diagenetic or hydrothermal reactions."

The German Church Smashed to Smithereens to Make Room for Coal

The German Church Smashed to Smithereens to Make Room for Coal | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
A spokesperson for the energy company RWE told the German news cameras that he empathized with the people who were losing a pillar of their community (church services had stopped a few years prior), but he said that lignite helped meet much of Germany’s electrical demands in the previous year, and that renewable sources couldn’t yet fuel the country on their own.

Some kind of analogy?

Noteworthy is the fact that most of the bones are badly disarticulated (separated and jumbled), and some human remains have been found. Another surprise is that most of the fossils (both of birds and mammals) are predators.

Geologist Accuses Apple of Political Bias in Removing App Countering Climate Alarmism

Geologist Accuses Apple of Political Bias in Removing App Countering Climate Alarmism | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Political figures who support the so-called Green New Deal and other proposals to restrict carbon dioxide emissions are up against some “inconvenient facts” that Americans may access immediately through a smartphone application, a geologist and author says.

But there’s one big problem.

The app, called Inconvenient Facts, is available only to Android users through the Google Play Store. Since March 4, users of Apple’s iPhone can no longer access the app through the tech giant’s App Store.

Earthquake Rose

Earthquake Rose | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
On February 28, 2001, an earthquake of magnitude 6.8 rocked the US state of Washington cracking sidewalks, toppling buildings, and causing some $2 billion worth of damages all throughout the state.

In Port Townsend, 65 miles north of the epicenter, a local shop called ‘Mind Over Matter’ had a sand-tracing pendulum on display, featuring a pointed weight at the end of a long wire suspended over a tray of sand.

Mauritania’s Iron Ore Train

Mauritania’s Iron Ore Train | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
Every evening, a long train hauling iron ore leaves Zouérat for Nouadhibou, dragging as many as two hundred wagons brimming with hematite. The train stretches for 2.5 kilometers. Each wagon carries up to 84 tons of iron ore, making the train one of the heaviest and longest in the world. A couple of passenger cars are also pulled along, but many prefer to hop into the wagons instead atop the pile of iron ore, trading comfort for a free ride.

Score another major point for creation geologists who have long doubted the slow-and-gradual processes used by materialists to claim vast periods of time are required for the rock record. Now, the hard work of mathematical modeling of the implications of these findings arrives. Let’s watch and see what comes of this paradigm shift.

Another verification of the theory of Creeping Catastrophism, which states that geologic rates tend to increased with increased observation.

Darwin Debate Heats Up

Darwin Debate Heats Up | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it
The debate about Darwin vs Design may be heating up again. Michael Behe’s new book Darwin Devolves, coming out this month, has already gotten a trashing in Science Magazine by three evolutionists, Lenski, Lents and Swamidass. If Science would just print the responses to the review by Brian Miller, John West and Behe himself at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, Darwin might be pleased. Pleased? Yes, because he himself said,

A fair result can can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question. Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species (1859), Introduction.
