105 here today. Humidity this morning is 55%. It doesn't feel good. It's probably pretty warm in D.C. but Pat will notice the dryer air when she gets home.

Does it cool off in the evening? That was one thing I thought very attractive about the Manzano Mountains, east of Albuquerque when I almost moved there a few years ago. Sunset meant a lot more comfort. Not so here in North Texas.

Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory
August 17, 2005 | Issue 41•33

KANSAS CITY, KS—As the debate over the teaching of evolution in public schools continues, a new controversy over the science curriculum arose Monday in this embattled Midwestern state. Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

Rev. Gabriel Burdett explains Intelligent Falling.
"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down," said Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics from Oral Roberts University.

Burdett added: "Gravity—which is taught to our children as a law—is founded on great gaps in understanding. The laws predict the mutual force between all bodies of mass, but they cannot explain that force. Isaac Newton himself said, 'I suspect that my theories may all depend upon a force for which philosophers have searched all of nature in vain.' Of course, he is alluding to a higher power."

Founded in 1987, the ECFR is the world's leading institution of evangelical physics, a branch of physics based on literal interpretation of the Bible.

According to the ECFR paper published simultaneously this week in the International Journal Of Science and the adolescent magazine God's Word For Teens!, there are many phenomena that cannot be explained by secular gravity alone, including such mysteries as how angels fly, how Jesus ascended into Heaven, and how Satan fell when cast out of Paradise.

The ECFR, in conjunction with the Christian Coalition and other Christian conservative action groups, is calling for public-school curriculums to give equal time to the Intelligent Falling theory. They insist they are not asking that the theory of gravity be banned from schools, but only that students be offered both sides of the issue "so they can make an informed decision."

"We just want the best possible education for Kansas' kids," Burdett said.

Proponents of Intelligent Falling assert that the different theories used by secular physicists to explain gravity are not internally consistent. Even critics of Intelligent Falling admit that Einstein's ideas about gravity are mathematically irreconcilable with quantum mechanics. This fact, Intelligent Falling proponents say, proves that gravity is a theory in crisis.

"Let's take a look at the evidence," said ECFR senior fellow Gregory Lunsden."In Matthew 15:14, Jesus says, 'And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.' He says nothing about some gravity making them fall—just that they will fall. Then, in Job 5:7, we read, 'But mankind is born to trouble, as surely as sparks fly upwards.' If gravity is pulling everything down, why do the sparks fly upwards with great surety? This clearly indicates that a conscious intelligence governs all falling."

Critics of Intelligent Falling point out that gravity is a provable law based on empirical observations of natural phenomena. Evangelical physicists, however, insist that there is no conflict between Newton's mathematics and Holy Scripture.

"Closed-minded gravitists cannot find a way to make Einstein's general relativity match up with the subatomic quantum world," said Dr. Ellen Carson, a leading Intelligent Falling expert known for her work with the Kansan Youth Ministry. "They've been trying to do it for the better part of a century now, and despite all their empirical observation and carefully compiled data, they still don't know how."

"Traditional scientists admit that they cannot explain how gravitation is supposed to work," Carson said. "What the gravity-agenda scientists need to realize is that 'gravity waves' and 'gravitons' are just secular words for 'God can do whatever He wants.'"

Some evangelical physicists propose that Intelligent Falling provides an elegant solution to the central problem of modern physics.

"Anti-falling physicists have been theorizing for decades about the 'electromagnetic force,' the 'weak nuclear force,' the 'strong nuclear force,' and so-called 'force of gravity,'" Burdett said. "And they tilt their findings toward trying to unite them into one force. But readers of the Bible have already known for millennia what this one, unified force is: His name is Jesus."

Thanks for adding the correct attribution, Rapaire. I omitted it in error. But, then, the QUALITY of the BS makes it clear that it is drawn from one of the few really pure wellsprings available.

Since the beginning of May, Pat's been home about 17 days, max. She's tired of suitcases and more than ready to spend time here. Of course, she's about ready for another free airplane trip from Southwest, but!!

The conscience of the world is not as you or I;
It hears and sees in other ways.
It knows the height of every sky
And the rate of dreaming and the cost of pain,
And the length of days.
Windows without number in a house of many mansions,
Unconcerned with our measures, names, or scansions.
But if anything can be called true, it is this:
The conscience of the world is.

Give them a sporting chance--let my dogs chase them (I don't think these dogs could catch a rabbit, but you never know.) Still, it would give the rabbits second thoughts about inhabiting the yard (though our regular mama bunny has had at least two batches in the front yard so far this year. I think she usually manages three a year).

Surgical removal of a seminoma from a black sea bass.

Weisse C, Weber ES, Matzkin Z, Klide A.

Department of Clinical Studies, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 19104-6010, USA.

An adult black sea bass was examined because of abdominal distention and decreased appetite. A large abdominal swelling was evident and was firm on palpation. Differential diagnoses included neoplasia, abscess or granuloma, hematoma, or swim bladder abnormality. Diagnostic tests included survey radiography, positive-contrast radiography, and computed tomography. The sea bass was anesthetized with tricaine methanesulfonate. A ventral midline abdominal incision was made, and adhesions to the mass were gently dissected. The fish recovered without complications. Radiography was repeated 8 weeks after surgery, and there was no evidence of mass regrowth. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of a barium enema being performed in a fish. Although surgical procedures are performed more commonly on fish for research, a few reports of clinical surgical cases have been described. Our experience supports the conclusions of other reports that certain surgical procedures can be performed safely in fish.

surgical procedures can be performed safely in fish.

This is indeed stupendous news of the highest and most important sort! Why think of the thousands upon thousands of people who have, until now, languished in despair, because they could not have their surgical procedures performed safely in their family fish.

After all, it is much less costly to have the surgery performed in fish - have you seen the cost of operating rooms lately? And I'm sure that the recuperation would go better in fish then in hospitals. Fish are living, careing entities, hospitals are dead, architechtural structures incapable of nurturing.

I think I'll never meet, or can
A sturgeon nimble as a man
For sturgeons often act quite dumb
And haven't an opposable thumb
Which means, to me, a man's the best
If hit with cardiac arrest,
Or if my belly wall should schism
Or brain stall from an aneurism.
But to be cut up inside a fish,
Why then a sturgeon'd be my wish,
Not for his skill in matters surgical
Nor for his thoughts on things liturgical
But for his talents speaking Sturgical.
