CRSQ Paper: The Origin of Trees
This is the show from Friday July 22nd, 2011.
* Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Trees
: While Fred's away, Real Science Friday
co-host Bob Enyart discusses the current Creation Research Society Quarterly
paper (pun intended), The Origin of Trees
, by Tom Hennigan and Jerry Bergman. And these two RSF flashbacks:
* Bristlecone Pine Tree Rings
: do NOT provide evidence as claimed by evolutionists of an age for the Earth greater than the Bible's record. The refereed scientific Journal of Creation presents the overwhelming evidence
that these trees growing in the arid White Mountains of California, one of the driest places on earth, grow multiple rings per year. Thus once again scientifically careful research, this time in dendrochronology, is consistent with biblical chronology! RSF 20070302
* Plant Cells Make Statoliths that Sink
: How does the root know which way is down, and the stem know which way is up? Plant cells make statoliths that are dense and heavy (lith is a Greek root, pun intended, for stone) and when the statoliths sink, like a stone, the plant knows which was is up and which way is down. Isn't God cool? RSF 20110513

: Bob Called In Today to 850 KOA
radio opposing suicide in a discussion with Mike Rosen and former Governor Dick Lamb
Lamm: “I’m in favor of physician assisted suicide. I belong to the Hemlock Society…”
Rosen: “Let’s take a phone call” [turns out it's from a Colorado RTL spokesman, Bob Enyart].
Bob: “Hi guys. Because suicide is wrong it has so many destructive consequences. I’d like to give a couple. It’s destabilizing. The worst suffering in the world is a 15-year-old boy whose girlfriend has left him. So in 2007 suicide was the 3rd leading cause of death for young people in America. And it has become epidemic because there’s no longer a moral stigma against it. If suicide is in your bag of tools for how to deal with suffering, then it affects the world in ways that are not immediately obvious. For example, Jihadist suicide bombers. And we have an epidemic of murder suicide. So when we disobey God’s command, Do not kill the innocent, we undermine the foundation of human civilization.”
Lamm: “Well, it’s an important point. What is a greater horror than a juvenile suicide? However, it begs the question. If we don’t do something, we’re really going to put a huge [tax] burden on the next generation…”
Rosen: “Bob, when you offer a religious argument which is what you are doing, I regard myself as a very moral person. I’ve got a conscience and I conduct myself ethically and morally. I’ve analyzed this topic that we’re talking about now, Bob and if you’re telling me that you’re going to brand me as immoral if I chose to commit suicide under the conditions I’ve talked about I would tell you that you don’t dictate my morality based on your religious beliefs.”
Bob: “Well I sure don’t but God who made you does.”
Rosen: “There’s a premise there that I don’t accept. You said God who made me. I don’t know if I was made by God… And I’m not an atheist by the way. I just don’t know the answer to these questions.”
Bob: “Mike, right and wrong flow from our Creator. That’s why it’s wrong to rape and murder.
Rosen: “That’s your assertion. No that’s not why it’s wrong to rape… but all we can do is agree to disagree on this.”
Bob: “No I don’t agree to disagree Mike. I care about you too much to agree to disagree.”
Rosen: “I’m moved by that and I appreciate it but I’m approaching this rationally and you’re approaching it from a faith based argument that I respect but I don’t share.”
Bob: “Well Issac Newton would disagree with your description of a belief in God as the Creator as irrational. He wrote more about the Creator God than he did about physics.”
Rosen: “Bring him in here and I’ll give him an apple.” - July 22, 2011 at 10:35 a.m.
