They're Making a Monkey Out of You!

In Harrisburg, Pa. they've locked horns on Intelligent Design. Several families are suing the school district for sharing the theory with students and stating that Darwinism is "only" a theory not proven truth. Any of you that have been to TMG's site know where we stand on this argument. Maybe this time people will make the right choice! But our government is based on Darwinism. This belief permeates our society. No wonder we have so much crime and problems! If a person can say that he came from a monkey he can also say that he cannot be morally accountable.

"Attorneys for the plaintiffs began their case by arguing that intelligent design is a religious theory inserted in the school district's curriculum by the school board with no concern for whether it has scientific underpinnings. "They did everything you would do if you wanted to incorporate a religious point of view in science class and cared nothing about its scientific validity," attorney Eric Rothschild said. Miller, who was the only witness Monday, sharply criticized intelligent design and questioned the work that went into it by one of its leading proponents, Lehigh University biochemist Michael Behe, who will be a key witness for the district. The statement read to Dover students states in part, "Because Darwin's theory is a theory, it continues to be tested as new evidence is discovered." Miller said the words are "tremendously damaging," falsely undermining the scientific status of evolution. "What that tells students is that science can't be relied upon and certainly is not the kind of profession you want to go into," he said. "There is no controversy within science over the core proposition of evolutionary theory," he added. On the other hand, Miller said, "intelligent design is not a testable theory in any sense and as such it is not accepted by the scientific community." During his cross-examination of Miller, Robert Muise, another attorney for the law center, repeatedly asked whether he questioned the completeness of Darwin's theory. "Would you agree that Darwin's theory is not the absolute truth?" Muise said. "We don't regard any scientific theory as the absolute truth," Miller responded.

I guess that's the key isn't it? Science isn't really interested in truth. That is according to the Scientific Method. Are you willing to throw your support behind a group of people that are not interested in truth?

"To The Moon Alice, To The Moon!"

Alright, here we go again! Nasa announced yesterday that we will go to the moon... again. They say that preparations will take until 2018. If my math still works, that's 13 years. Here's the question - Why will it take 13 years now, when preparation only took 9 years when President Kennedy announced the moonshot back in the sixties????? Our technology has taken leaps and bounds since the sixties. Well I'm sorry, I don't believe we ever went to the moon in the first place. And the other significant issue - this is going to take billions according to NASA. Actually hundreds of billions! How many more bounced checks are we going to write? I don't know about you, but I could use some tax relief. Is this another ploy to bring the country together? You know, American pride? I think I can figure out a few different ways to spend $104 billion dollars. Perhaps that money will be spent on a better "Hollywood production" this time.

L.A. Electrical Outage and Ophelia

I cannot believe that one individual mistake can cause the outage of 2 million customers. If that were the case then the electrical grid would never stay up. In view of the fact that there was an X20 flare on the sun followed by at least 6 X flares in 2 days, this explanation of the power hit in Los Angeles is ludicrous.

I am doing extra study on our present topic but right now the hurricane Ophelia really worries me. It is almost on shore and the mandatory evacuations have not yet begun. At least most of the tourists are out of there. The eye of this storm is so huge-perhaps 75 to 100 miles across. I saw the north end start to go into the red on the radar cross-section of the storm. I am not sure what will happen but the area of the storm's eye is an indication of the intensity of the storm. It might well be worst than Katrina in terms of rainfall, and perhaps storm surge. I am just not sure how this is going to workout. If you assume the eye of Katrina was at least 50 miles across,then Ophelia would be at least 4 times the energy dump into the coastline than the other storm was capable of. I am guessing that Ophelia's eye is about 100 miles across and the ratio of the areas will dictate the amount of the energy dump,provided there are no other large energy drains happening such as a 7 or 8 magnitude earthquake for instance. I did notice that Ophelia did slow down in intensification when that 7.7 earthquake happened the other day in Papua,New Guineau.

Another thing that worries me about this storm is the direction that it is heading. I feel that if the storm were less intense, say with a much smaller eye and just an ordinary hurricane, I suspect that it would have long since have turned toward the northeast and be on a fast track out of the states. But, because the earth's magnetic forces are coming more into play in "ordinary weather", forces up to 10 times normal may be the new norm. This simply means that the storm may continue to be drawn further inland than would usually be expected of such a "low intensity" storm and cause far more damage than usual in such a situation. It just may be that the more rapid change in the location of the earth's magnetic north pole may be changing the direction and pull on the this particular storm, perhaps exerting a much greater force due to the magnetic hysterisis of such entities, much like that of a crystal. I wonder if this jerking motion on the storm(due to increased forces) could be responsible for some of the wobbling motion of this hurricane. I have also noticed the "squaring off" of a few hurricane eyes lately and if the crust can be affected with a jerk causing a large 9+ earthquake in Sumatra and an axis of rotation change for the whole world back in December, then certainly the forces exerted on a hurricane could cause much more change in direction and velocity of that entity or retardation of same in its motion (gases are affected much more than solids or liquids by more than 1000 times).

It also does not help for all those X flares to be so close in time to one another and for one to realize that they could also add to the hurricanes force with the collection of more water at 11 miles up where the charges are greater. This could add to the misery below the storm. There could be a significant amplification factor involved here, that is, of the strength of the storm as the charges brought in from space are much greater than down below say at the tropospheric levels(10,000 feet).

Now comes word from the The Weather Channel that the storm surge of this storm will coincide with the normal high tide to make matters worst. This just might become another worst case scenario for that part of the coastline of the U.S.

Addendum:9.13.05 8p.m. We have just had THREE more X-Flares this evening! Haven't seen this many X-Flares at one time over the past few days - ever!

Still Peddling Foolishness!

Another "discovery" by our friends over at Uniformitarian U is another proof that they're still clutching at strawdogs. Here's the byline:

"An ancient, near-death star with a disc of metal-rich dust orbiting around it has recently been discovered by astronomers. The dust's origin is a mystery, though, as it should have been sucked into the star within a few hundred years of the star's death.
Even though this anomaly is about 82 light-years away and several billion years old, astronomers think it could provide a preview of our solar system's future when the Sun dies five to six billion years from now.
Once the fuel ran out, the star lost plenty of mass and heat, and shriveled into a white dwarf – the final stage of star evolution where the star burns out and dies. Enough heat gets released during this process to vaporize any surrounding dust, rocks, and planets, leaving behind a disc of dust. This dust usually gets sucked into the newly formed white dwarf and incinerated within a few hundred years.
But when GD 362 went through this process five billion years ago, the dust never cleared up. And astronomers don't know how a dead star roughly the size of Earth has been able to sustain a disc the size of Saturn's rings for so long."

Are we the only one's getting this???? There's another force in the universe that is greater than gravity! And while we're at it - Maybe they could tell me again the makeup of stars or how stars/suns actually work? It's our belief that suns are not powered from within. But that's just like all of the other ideas that we have over here at TMG. The status quo, that is Dr. Uniformitarian, keeps telling himself that he's right, until eventually he comes out with a NEW DISCOVERY! Well that "new discovery" as new discoveries go, is actually an old thought from an incredible person like Immanuel Velikovsky, Tesla, Alfven, and Shulgin. But they're only crackpots.

Have you seen what's going on with the sun the last few days? Here's the xray graph. The X-flare is off the scale - a new level had to be put in to rate the flare! The planetary scale is also off the scale. This is a real event - did you happen to hear about it on the news tonight or in the last few nights? Of course not. With us still locked into the hurricane season and a killer typhoon just hitting Japan (did you hear about that one?), I just wonder how much power these flares will pump into these storms?
