*  Hawking's Mutter, Spiced Greens, & Fossil Butter: So, nothing created everything. Huh! On this episode of Real Science Friday Bob Enyart draw from the latest issue of Creation magazine to discuss:
- Butter fossilizing in Scotland in less than a million years
- Buttering our toast with spliced genes, and
- Buttering up Isaac Newton by pointing out that he trumps Stephen Hawking when it comes to how the planets go. Do laws cause actions, or do they explain actions? Hawking claims that the physical laws caused the universe. However, he is confusing kinds of things. For example, Newton's laws of physics don't cause billiard balls to move on a pool table. But they explain how they move when caused to move by some agent.

* Cranky YouTube Evolutionist Alexdurrant7: Instead of saying, "I'm no creationist, but wow Bob's bold claim was unexpectedly vindicated," cranky Alexdurrant7 picks on our title: Dawkins *Proves* Creationist Right.Alexdurrant7: No. *Proof* is only possible in the field of mathematics.
YesYouNeedJesus: Hmmm...what laws of mathematics would you use to prove that you exist?
A7: I don't think it's provable. I said proof is only possible in mathematics...
YesJesus: Well then, does mathematics exist?To which A7 should reply: Touche :)

* BEL Audio from 1997 Confirmed Now By Richard Dawkins: Dawkins admits that in all of his previous books he assumed but did not provide evidence for evolution, thus vindicating Bob Enyart's direct statement to a 1997 caller:
