During the time that we (that's me and the Holy spirit) were at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill we were the teaching assistant for Biology 43, Local Flora, for two spring semesters.
Redistribution of Floras
"Redistribution of floras reflecting advances and retreats of glaciers." Glacial ice formed at the poles and around the equator as the waters of Noah's flood evaporated.
Extensive Swamps in Lowlands
Most of the sedimentary deposits assigned to the Mississippian are coal beds in the Mississippi valley. The coal is the remains of swamp habitat that was buried in a world-wide flood.
The Precious Fruit of the Earth
The Greek word karpos and its meaning "fruit" give us the word carpel in Botany. The carpel is the female reproductive organ of a plant composed of the stigma, style and ovary. Once fertilized by pollen it would become the fruit.
There were two horses on Noah's ark, a mating pair, now there are at least seven species in genus Equus. That's macro-evolution. Christians need to stop whining about it.
The Jurassic wasn't a period of time, it was an ecosystem which was adapted to certain conditions of aspect and altitude, determining the flora and fauna, which had world wide occurrence at the time of Noah's flood.
The Nether Parts of the Earth
Yesterday we took a detour to slam dunk relativistic time dilation as proof of the Bible. Today we're going back to our discussion of a possible transition in the internal structure of the Earth when tehom became sheol.
We (that's me and the Holy spirit) use deductive reasoning to resolve supposed conflicts between the Bible and what people refer to as "science" but which we've isolated and identified to be THE NARRATIVE (SciPop).
The traditional battle line of the science vs. faith debate is creation vs. evolution. However, science requires faith, and evolution is an integral part of the creation narrative.
The biological definition of life and what the Bible describes as living aren't the same thing. This is important to know as we see how the process of creation unfolded. Biology is the foundation of secular humanism.
