RSR: Now, Two Million Year-Old Leaves?

* Yup! More Not-So-Old Things: This time, it's leaves! "When we started pulling leaves out of the soil, that was surreal, to know that it's millions of years old..." sur-re-al: adjective: a bizarre mix of fact and fantasy. In this case, the leaves are the facts. Earth scientists from Ohio State and the University of Minnesota say that wood and leaves they found in the Canadian Arctic are at least two million years old! For 2013, Bob and Fred will add these leaves to their annual classic, the RSR List of Not So Old Things!
* Darwinism Does NOT Predict Biological Universals (like DNA) and Darwinists Do NOT See Evolution as Falsifiable: Evolutionary scientists claim that Darwinism predicted biological universals (such as all life being built upon the same molecular genetic mechanisms). Darwinists also claim that they see evolution as scientifically falsifiable. But if these alleged beliefs of theirs were themselves false, how could someone go about demonstrating that they don't really believe what they claim to believe? That seems tough to do. Well, Bob and Fred accomplish this by observing that the typical evolutionist believes in highly evolved aliens! That proves that they don't really believe their own claims. For more information on the evolutionary implications of alien physiology, see realscienceradio.com/Dawkins#aliens.
* Jesus Is a Young Earth Creationist: Jesus said that, "from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female," (Mark 10:6). Typically, and over time, Christian organizations that reject the Bible's teaching on a young earth eventually reject many other fundamental Bible teachings, including for example the very existence of Adam and Eve. As you'll recall, RSR corrected Christianity Today's cover story in which they denied the existence of Adam and Eve! Also, if Adam and Eve had been created 15 billion years after the Big Bang, then the Lord would have been wrong, and they would have been created at the END of creation, NOT at the BEGINNING! But Jesus is the Creator. So He's not wrong.
