BY MIRANDA WHEATLEY You're watching multisource science video news analysis from Newsy. “And now please show them your teeth Kermit! Uh, Grover. Uh, Grover. I was going to say to you, you know how I’m a frog, you know, well frogs do not have teeth Grover, no teeth. Open your mouth!” (YouTube/Sesame Workshop) Almost everything you learn on Sesame Street is true. But on this one, Kermit’s got it wrong. Of nearly six thousand known species of frogs, a new study out of Stony Brook University suggests there’s actually one with a set of real-life chompers. And that is spawning a conversation about evolution -- trait RE-evolution, to be exact. Take a look at all the species that don’t have teeth. According to the 19th Century Dollo’s Law, when a species loses a trait - like humans did tails - it never comes back. But these biologists say they’ve found a frog with teeth on both jaws - a trait not seen in some 200 million years. (Video from: National Geographic) The tooth-frog species’ name is Gastrotheca guentheri and lives primarily in the Andean forests of Colombia and Ecuador. Head scientist John tells the BBC, analyzing frog fossils and DNA sequences helped him prove his theory. “Dr Wiens believes that this re-evolution can be considered a ‘loophole' in Dollo's law. … ‘What G. guentheridid was to put teeth back on the lower jaw, rather than having to re-evolve all the mechanisms for making teeth 'from scratch'...’” And The Frog Blog says the frog’s set of teeth isn’t the first example of re-evolution.... “...scientists have identified and debated several attributes that have apparently ‘re-evolved’ over time including stick insect's wings … and lost digits in lizards.” But as Wiens points out in his study - those examples have been subject to speculation. Wiens’ research is considered a solid challenge to Dollo’s Law - and a blogger for Science 2.0 says it’s time to shake things up. “...Dollo's law stated that complex traits lost cannot come back, evolution is irreversible - well, so what? It's been a long time since 1890 when paleontologist Louis Dollo asserted that and it was never a law anyway, it was just a hypothesis.” Wiens says the re-evolution of Gastrotheca guentheri’s lower teeth took some 20 million years to come back, so Kermit might just have to wait awhile for that perfect smile.

This book provides the reader with not only such information as what fossils are and where and how they are found, but also a closer examination of a variety of fossil specimens, millions of years old, that are still able to declare, "We never underwent evolution; we were created." The fossils discussed and illustrated in this book are just a few examples of the hundreds of millions of specimens that prove the fact of Creation. And even these few are enough to prove that the theory of evolution is a major hoax and deception in the history of science.

For years Dr. Martin wrestled with the conflicts between evolutionary theory and the Bible. As a scientist, he was sure he knew the answers. But then his faith, as a Christian, completely changed his life. In this DVD series, Dr. Martin will point out the distinct differences between evolution and creation. He will take a look at animals that break all the evolutionary 'rules'. He will examine the many problems with evolution and show why the Bible is an excellent source of science.

Materialists like to claim evolution is indispensable to experimental biology and led the way to many breakthroughs in medicine, Yet in a article entitled "Evolutionary theory contributes little to experimental biology", this expert author begs to differ. "Certainly, my own research with antibiotics during World War II received no guidance from insights provided by Darwinian evolution. Nor did Alexander Fleming's discovery of bacterial inhibition by penicillin. I recently asked more than 70 eminent researchers if they would have done their work differently if they had thought Darwin's theory was wrong. The responses were all the same: No. I also examined the outstanding biodiscoveries of the past century: the discovery of the double helix; the characterization of the ribosome; the mapping of genomes; research on medications and drug reactions; improvements in food production and sanitation; the development of new surgeries; and others. I even queried biologists working in areas where one would expect the Darwinian paradigm to have most benefited research, such as the emergence of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides. Here, as elsewhere, I found that Darwin's theory had provided no discernible guidance, but was brought in, after the breakthroughs, as an interesting narrative gloss.",,, When an explanation is so supple that it can explain any behavior, it is difficult to test it experimentally, much less use it as a catalyst for scientific discovery." Philip S. Skell is Emeritus Evan Pugh Professor at Pennsylvania State University, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. *******www.discovery****/scripts/viewDB/index.php?command=view&id=2816 Intelligent Design - The Anthropic Hypothesis *******lettherebelight-77.blogspot****/

Evolution's Fatal Flaw - The Origin Of Life - Chris Ashcraft PhD First-Ever Blueprint of 'Minimal Cell' Is More Complex Than Expected - Nov. 2009 Excerpt: A network of research groups,, approached the bacterium at three different levels. One team of scientists described M. pneumoniae's transcriptome, identifying all the RNA molecules, or transcripts, produced from its DNA, under various environmental conditions. Another defined all the metabolic reactions that occurred in it, collectively known as its metabolome, under the same conditions. A third team identified every multi-protein complex the bacterium produced, thus characterising its proteome organisation.

"there are no known violations of the second law of thermodynamics. Ordinarily the second law is stated for isolated systems, but the second law applies equally well to open systems." John Ross, Chemical and Engineering News, 7 July 1980 Can “ANYTHING” Happen in an Open System? - Granville Sewell Excerpt: If we found evidence that DNA, auto parts, computer chips, and books entered through the Earth’s atmosphere at some time in the past, then perhaps the appearance of humans, cars, computers, and encyclopedias on a previously barren planet could be explained without postulating a violation of the second law here (it would have been violated somewhere else!). *******www.math.utep.edu/Faculty/sewell/articles/appendixd.pdf Evolution's Thermodynamic Failure - Granville Sewell (Professor of Mathematics Texas University - El Paso) *******www.spectator****/dsp_article.asp?art_id=9128 Walter L.

Professor Arthur E. Wilder-Smith "Any amounts of polypeptide which might be formed will be broken down into their initial components (amino acids) by the excess of water. The ocean is thus practically the last place on this or any other planet where the proteins of life could be formed spontaneously from amino acids. Yet nearly all text-books of biology teach this nonsense to support evolutionary theory and spontaneous biogenesis ... Has materialistic Neo-Darwinian philosophy overwhelmed us to such an extent that we forget or overlook the well-known facts of science and of chemistry in order to support this philosophy? ... Without exception all Miller's amino acids are completely unsuitable for any type of spontaneous biogenesis. And the same applies to all and any randomly formed substances and amino acids which form racemates.
