Cover of The Documentary Hypothesis book by Umberto Cassuto
Scholarly demolition 

Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart continues his interview of Professor Gentry. Tim Mahoney's film series Patterns of Evidence presented the Documentary Hypothesis attack on Moses as the author of Genesis and the whole Torah. An intriguing screen moment was when Prof. Peter Gentry recounts asking his own professor about a book by preeminent academic Umberto Cassuto called The Documentary Hypothesis. His professor responds, "We don’t read things like that here." Really? This little book presents eight lectures delivered at Jerusalem's Hebrew University by Dr. Cassuto, holding professorships at the University of Florence and the University of Rome until the Italian fascists enacted their anti-Semitic laws when he had to leave and went to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Gentry, who studied language and Old Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary, Jerusalem University College, and earned his degrees from the University of Toronto, talks Bob through Cassuto's fourth lecture against the Documentary Hypothesis affirming the integrity of the authorship of the Pentateuch! See this also at rsr.org/exodus#gentry.

Ryan Mullins, Timelessess and God: Pt. 2

This video link will be removed from here in a week...

Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart continues to interview theologian and author of the Oxford Studies title, The End of the Timeless God, Ryan Mullins. More than 700 pages on the websites of the big creatoion ministries (CMI, AiG, CRS, ICR) use the phrase "God and time". (If you'd like to verify this or otherwise use the time-saving customized Google tool to simultaneously search the big creation ministries, just look atop rsr.org.)  Research fellow at Scotland's University of St. Andrews, Dr. Mullins has published groundbreaking work on the topic of God's relationship to time. Bob read and highly recommends Mullin's book! And we invite you to browse our own titles and check out "God and time" resources at our own store.kgov.com!

Predestination%20%26%20Free%20Will%20set%20.jpg__06743.1412612118.pngToday's Resource: Predestination & Free Will Seminar So much is at stake when people consider predestination and free will. Strong emotions often surface with a discussion of this topic. That passion points to our critical need to understand the truth regarding whether or not God has predetermined who will go to heaven and who will go to hell.

Also, the question of whether or not God has planned out each person’s life affects us. Does God have a plan for your life? Does a blueprint exist for your future? Did God predetermine whether or not you would get married, and to whom? Did God plan whether you would be wealthy or poor, happy or sad? If God does plan your life, does He do so in minute detail or in general themes? If God has a plan for your life, are you able to alter that plan? This topic directly influences people concerning how they live their lives. As Christians, we must seek God to accurately portray the LORD to others. For any misrepresentation of God will dishonor Him and perhaps bring harm to those misled.

If the (14c) Data Doesn't Fit, Just Fix the Data

COVID-19 lethality and transmissability 3/11/20 Elderberry syrup.

Over the hundreds of Real Science Radio episodes we've talked about Carbon 14 (and what it indicates about the age of fossils) with some of the world's leading experts on radiocarbon dating (for example, Dr. Steve Taylor, long-time Head of the Mass Spectrometry Group at the University of Liverpool and author of 160 peer-reviewed papers). Today, by recommendation from a listener who speaks about creation at St. Cloud University in Minnesota, we're interviewing someone who actually built a Carbon-14 research lab! Dr. John Lepera, with a masters in physics from Ball State, presents his experience helping the anthropology department by measuring radiocarbon in peat that formed under a retreating glacier in what is today Muncie, Indiana. The careful results he obtained supported the biblical timeframe, so he was told to do it again, and by using a sample that included some limestone grains with the peat (i.e., a contaminated sample), the results satisfied the requirement of the anthropoligists and please his own academic advisor.

RSR Special Episode: One of those 30,000 public school teachers!

CorrectionJames Craft is speaking in:
- Sterling at 7 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, at the First English Lutheran Church
- Ft. Morgan at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Calvary University Innovation Center
- Denver at 7 p.m. on Friday at our Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship at the Littleton Baptist Church
- Colo Spgs at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Mesa Hills Bible Church.

The journal Science published a report indicating that 30,000 U.S. public high school biology teachers (consistent with many thousands of scientists and scholars) do not endorse Darwinism in class! One of those science teachers, who taught at Green Bay, Wisconsin, is James Craft. With a major in biology and a minor in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, that bastion of liberalism, Jim taught his students two models, the unreasonable one, evolution, and the reasonable one, creation. For as the Bible says, faith is the [proper response to the] evidence for things not seen, whereas it is unreasonable to believe, against all scientific knowledge, in a materialist origin of life (OOL) claim that life could arise from non-life. (By the way, we'll discuss abiogenesis that with a biochemist on Friday's RSR program and on March 27 we'll resume our series with Fred Williams on the problems with star formation.) Jim Craft is speaking around Colorado's front range this week in the evenings at 7 p.m., tonight in Sterling at the First English Lutheran Church, tomorrow at Calvary University Innovation Center in Ft. Morgan, Friday at our Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship at the Littleton Baptist Church, and at 1 p.m. on Saturday afternoon in Colorado Springs at Mesa Hills Bible Church.

Doug Axe on RSR on his Historic Discovery of Protein Structure

Undeniable book cover* A Place in the History of Molecular Biology: At Cambridge University, anti-Darwinist Douglas Axe worked for some of the world's leading molecular biologists in the laboratory established by four Nobel laureates including the guys who discovered DNA's double-helix. Decades after Watson and Crick broke the field of molecular biology wide open, evolutionists at Cambridge were still publishing the claim that the recipe for building proteins had just a couple of rudimentary requirements. Doug's groundbreaking research showed that the "simple model" of protein construction was false. Further, shocking to evolutionists, Axe showed that the very particular order of hundreds of various amino acids was a very specific sequence needed for standard protein function (with a specific, different sequence needed for each kind of protein). Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart is honored to interview Dr. Axe!

* To Get the Book: You can purchase Doug's fabulous book wherever great boooks are sold including at Amazon.com or elsewhere as listed at the book's website, UndeniableDesign.com!

* The Richard Dawkins 3-to-1 Evolution Challenge: Research for a debate on the Bible led Bob Enyart and his associate Will Duffy to Oxford University. While there, thinking about the popularity of RSR's graphical evolution challenges, such as the Evolution Vision Challenge and about the success of our PZ Myers Trochlea Challenge (click for that evolutionist's reply), the guys decided to hand deliver to the Oxford office of professor emeritus Richard Dawkins a printed copy of RSR's Dawkins 3-to-1 Challenge. (Dawkins still lectures there for a course titled, Science Literacy: Evolution for Non-Scientists.) Intelligent Design arguments based on complexity, like the flagellum argument offered by Michael Behe, are powerful yet that very complexity provides opportunities for opponents to obfuscate. (For example, if a cellular component is assembled from twenty parts, an evolutionist can make somewhat irrelevant comments about two or three of those parts, and get millions of evolutionists to claim that he has refuted that design challenge.) Thus Real Science Radio has been testing arguments based on the simpler, rather than the more complex, aspects of organisms. It appears that these inherently simpler arguments may more effectively demonstrate the inability of the materialist worldview to explain biology. (Our Myers Trochlea Challenge is just such an argument, focusing on one of the simplest parts of the human vision system.) So the graphic that we delivered to New College asserts that neither Richard Dawkins, nor any materialist, will ever be able to answer this simple Dawkins 3-to-1 Evolution Challenge:

"If the people can do it the sheep can do it", Temple Grandin in Patterns

* 3/18/20 Update Hydroxychloroquine: On the phone today with renowned scientist Temple Grandin we were talking about the Nature report just out, Hydroxychloroquine, a less toxic derivative of chloroquine, is effective in inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 infection in vitro. Grandin wants everyone to know about this! See more in the NY Times and in this paper in the Nature journal Cell Discovery.

If the people can do it, Jacob's Sheep can do it! :)* Review of Patterns III: Red Sea Miracle: Real Science Radio hosets Bob Enyart and Fred Williams review Tim Mahoney's third installment in his Patterns of Evidence series, The Red Sea Miracle. The guys begin with audience favorite, CSU professor autism spokesperson and author of 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers on animal behavior Temple Grandin, who answers Mahoney's question about whether sheep could travel twenty miles a day for days on end. "If the people can do it the sheep can do it" she answered bluntly. Thus this woman, named by Time magazine as one of the hundred most influential people in the world, swiped away in a simple sentence a century of objection to the "Hebrew approach" on crossing the desert to the sea. That was one of various objections, both scholarly (like the location of yam suph) and colloquial (like sandals would wear out), addressed by the film's evaluation of the "Egyptian approach" of a nearby, smaller, and less miraculous crossing as compared to what Mahoney calls a "Hebrew approach" to a far greater and more miraculous Red Sea Crossing. (This RSR episode was recorded the day after the nationwide fathom event screening. And consider visiting the rsr.org/exodus landing page for our list of evidence!)

* Mahoney's Patterns:
Patterns of Evidence -- The Exodus: Arrival; Multiplication; Slavery; Judgment; Exodus; Conquest.
Patterns of Evidence -- Moses Controversy: Match the Look; Readable; Match the History.
Patterns of Evidence -- The Red Sea Miracle: Departure Point; Direction; Desert; Detour to a Dead End; Deep Sea; Destination to Mt. Sinai.

* The Reversal of Egyptologist Manfred Bietak: In the early 2000s after years leading Egyptian excavations Egyptologist Manfred Bietak on camera answers Mahoney's question about evidence for the Israelites in Egypt, bluntly stating, "So far, not." That wasn't the "so far" of a hopeful investigator but rather as a mainstream scholar he did not recognize the historicity of the Hebrew sojourn and added, "To connect this with the Israelites is a very weak affair." Fast forward more than a decade later and Mahoney again interviews him, asking about any knowledge gained in the intervening years, "Do you [now] see a place where the Israelites could have lived?" And in a dramatic reversal, "A very exciting evidence comes from the region of the Wadi Tumilat" Bietak says pointing to the Goshen region on a map. "I was able to prove that the western half of Wadi Tumilat was an enormous overflow lake, because it was a kind of enormous basin, fed by a branch of the Nile, eighteen kilometers long, 1.8 kilometers wide. What is most interesting, Sarah Groll [the late linquist Egyptologist toponyms expert] pointed it out, there is a lake in one of the Ramesside texts called Geshem, Gesem." This is one of the semitic place names Groll identified. "And indeed in the Septuagint version," Bietak continued, "Goshen is written as Gesem. … Gesem is a semitic lake tied to a big lake, and it can only be this lake" he says tapping on the map at Goshen. So Mahoney askms why semitic place names would appear in Egypt and Bietak answered. "Why did Egyptian scribes for heavens sake use semitic toponyms for an area that belongs to Egypt? It could only mean that the people living there, the majority, spoke a semitic language. Here we have the name Pithom tied to a Ramasside document" pointing again to the map. "I think that one should not mistrust the story of the sojourn of the Israelites in Egypt. I think there is packed inside, a story which may have an historic background." See also rsr.org/exodus#goshen.

* On Yam Suph / The Red Sea: BEL DRAFT NOTES. The last thing that the world needs is a new idea on the Red Sea. But, what if Yam Suph did not exist as a toponym (a geographic name) prior to the sea crossing, but rather, as Moses was saved in the suph of the Nile's waters, the water crossed took on that idiomatic name precisely because the Israelites were saved through its waters? Watching Tim Mahoney's Red Sea Miracle prompted the following idea. Scholars in the film state what has long been known, that the Hebrew yam means sea, and that suph does not mean red, but rather, reeds. Consider that the "names" of the pagan gods were not so much personal names as titles of (false) deity such as Baal, and likewise the words Abimelech, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes may not be names of individuals but titles of royalty. Similarly, what if yam suph was not the pre-existing name of a specific body of water but rather referred to a watery saving? Consider also that dramatic events often give rise to new figures of speech. The creation week led to the number seven meaning completion and likewise the flood's days of rain led to forty meaning a fully sufficient amount of time. After Moses was saved through the Nile's waters when his mother hid him in the suph, that is, in the reeds (twice stated in Exodus 2), perhaps an idiomatic expression arose regarding a saving involving water which became a suph saving?

Pondering that, consider the 28 uses of suph in the Bible:
- The suph of the Nile where Moses was saved (Ex. 2:3, 5)
- The suph sea where the wind blew the locusts (Ex. 10:19)
- The suph sea referencing where Israel was saved (22 times; though a couple of these need to be examined further)
- The suph sea of Solomon's ships (at the Gulf of Aqaba 1 Ki 9:26)
- Though the suph wrapped around his head Jonah was saved (2:5)

As the antithesis, Isaiah 49 provides the final reference stating that Egypt's "waters will fail from the sea and the river will be wasted... reeds and suph will wither" (Isa. 49:6) so that whereas God's people were saved, those arrayed against Him can expect no watery suph saving. If this idea is valid, then the Jonah reference would be an instance of a typical use of a word with a particular connotation used as a subtle figure of speech. So how might this relate to study of the Exodus route? First, there would be no need to search for a body of water previously identified as yam suph. When Israel was saved through the sea, it became the suph sea, such that the most significant use of the figure for a time actually conferred a new name onto that body of water. Second, a lack of reeds would not mitigate against the "Hebrew approach", as Tim Mahoney calls it, to locating the Red Sea miracle at the Gulf of Aqaba.
