The Source of Life
AN AMAZING FACT: Evidence continues to mount that the mystery of life can only be explained by intelligent miraculous intervention. In the mid-1800s, when Charles Darwin wrote his theory of evolution, many scientists believed in something called “spontaneous generation.” This is the belief that living things, like maggots, can spontaneously arise from non-living material. Many people believed this because they had observed worms and flies apparently springing forth from lifeless material like decaying meat or fruit.
In 1859, the great scientist Louis Pasteur proved the absurdity of spontaneous generation. He demonstrated when the decaying material was insulated from flies and insects, no larva ever appeared. Now more than ever, modern science confirms that life is extremely complex and can only arise from pre-existing life. This is why the best efforts of
evolution scientists have not been able to produce a single cell of life even in the controlled environments of expensive high-tech laboratories.

Now with the marvels of 21st-century microscopes, scientists understand that even the simplest and smallest organism is, in effect, a virtual factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, far more complicated than the International Space Station. In fact, each microscopic cell is as functionally
complex as a small city at rush hour! Now as we delve deeper into the cellular world, science reveals a virtual Lilliputian world of enormous complexity that has pushed the theory of evolution to a breaking point. It is likely that if Charles Darwin was alive today and could see a single cell magnified 50,000 times through electron micrographs, he would utterly renounce his theory as foolishness.

Because it is increasingly obvious there is no scientific explanation for the origin of life on Earth,…...

...Science Seminar Unit 2 Kaplan University The type of measurements that indicate climate change is occurring is the National Climatic Data Center; it contains the instrumental and paleoclimate records that will precisely define the nature climatic fluctuations. Other resources are ships, buoys, weather balloons, weather stations and many climate proxy records like tree rings and ice cores. The National Oceanographic Data Center receives the ocean data that can reveal the way heat is distributed and redistributed over our planet. Climate information goes on for hundreds and thousands of years, the paleoclimatology data helps provide longer term perspectives. Over the years reduced diurmal temperature range (DTR: the difference between daily high or maximum and daily low or minimum temperatures) over 70% of the global land mass since the middle of the 2oth century. The years between 1979-2005, the DTR shows no trend. There are many factors’ that contribute to the change in DTR, on a regional and local basis, which include changes in cloud cover, atmospherics water vapors, land use and urban effects. The challenges they face is trying to figure out if human activities are leading to an enhancement of the greenhouse effect by emission of greenhouse gases through fossil fuel combustion and deforestation. Concentration levels of carbon dioxide have risen since 2000...

... where acid rain is an atmospheric pollution concern Apart from Canada, there are other regions in the world where acid rain is an atmospheric concern. One of the places is the North-Eastern region of the United States of America (Mellanby). The acid rain in this region is caused by the high number of processing industries and automobiles which emit oxide compounds to the atmosphere. Also, some regions of Asia, specifically China and India is affected by the acid rain as a result of large number of factories which emits compounds responsible for the formation of the acid rain.

...DNA Technology Task 3 – Poster DNA fingerprinting, also known as DNA profiling, is a technique used in forensic science that identifies individuals based on various characteristics of their DNA. Although the DNA sequences between humans are 99.9% identical, DNA fingerprinting is able to distinguish between individuals due to the presence of specific sequences within the non-coding region of the genome known as satellite DNA. This satellite DNA consists of long stretches of DNA made up of repeating base sequences known as short tandem repeats (STR). These STRs considerably vary in length between individuals, particularly between unrelated individuals, allowing exact individuals to be identified. One major use of DNA fingerprinting is in crime scene investigations in order to identify suspects or also victims based on DNA samples from blood or hair present in the crime scene. Another use is in paternity testing that compares the DNA of the mother and offspring to the potential fathers in order to identify the father. The first step in DNA fingerprinting involves isolating DNA from a tissue sample such as blood or hair. Very often, particularly when tissue samples are obtained from crime scenes, the amount of DNA available for DNA fingerprinting is extremely small. Fortunately, a molecular biology technique known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) allows the DNA sample to be amplified considerably. In essence, this technique is an artificial version of DNA replication. The...

It is mixture of granite and volcanic rocks * After the basement rock are PLATFORMS, younger layer of continental crust, made of sendimentary rocks. When platforms are connected with basement rocks, they are called Cratons * Cratons often survive the cycles of merging and rifting of continents * At the edges of cratons are the Continental Margins * When continental margins are moved by tectonic plates, natural landforms such as mountain ranges * Oceanic Crust- made of heavier basalt and gabbro rocks, younger than continental crust, older for this type is around 200 million years * In terms of thickness, oceanic crust measure only around 7km thick while continental crusts range from 10km to 70km thick * Location: Men will experience a more uniform condition due to the lack of significant typography and our landscape would be older VOLCANIC * These plates drift slowly over the mantle below, which is lubricated by a soft layer called ASTHESNOSPHERE * Volcano is a mountain that opens downward to a...

...science Science[nb 1] is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations andpredictions about the universe.[nb 2] In an older and closely related meaning, "science" also refers to this body of knowledge itself, of the type that can be rationally explained and reliably applied. Ever since classical antiquity, science as a type of knowledge has been closely linked to philosophy. In theWest during the early modern periodthe term "Science" and "Natural Philosophy" were sometimes used interchangeably to refer to the study of natural phenomena[2]:p.3 and, until the 19th century, natural philosophy (which is today called "natural science") was considered a branch of philosophy.[3] In modern usage "science" most often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, not only the knowledge itself. In the 17th and 18th centuries scientists increasingly sought to formulate knowledge in terms of laws of nature. Over the course of the 19th century, the word "science" became increasingly associated with the scientific method itself, as a disciplined way to study the natural world, including physics, chemistry, geology and biology. It is in the 19th century also that the term scientist began to be applied to those who sought knowledge and understanding of nature.[4] Modern science is typically subdivided into the natural sciences which study the material world, the social sciences which study people and societies, and the formal sciences like......

...The Second Law of Thermodynamics The second law of thermodynamics says that the entropy of any segregated framework dependably increments. Confined frameworks suddenly advance towards warm balance—the condition of most extreme entropy of the framework. All the more basically: the entropy of the universe (a definitive disconnected framework) just increments and never diminishes. A basic approach to think about the second law of thermodynamics is that a room, if not cleaned and cleaned, will perpetually turn out to be more muddled and confused with time - paying little respect to that one is so watchful to keep it clean. At the point when the room is cleaned, its entropy diminishes, yet the push to clean it has brought about an expansion in entropy outside the room that surpasses the entropy lost. The Third Law of Thermodynamics The third law of thermodynamics expresses that the entropy of a framework methodologies a steady esteem as the temperature approaches supreme zero. The entropy of a framework at supreme zero is regularly zero, and in all cases is resolved just by the quantity of various ground states it has. In particular, the entropy of an unadulterated crystalline substance (immaculate request) at total zero temperature is zero.

...The importance of science and the ways of expressing scientific ways of life to the world. The start of scientific rules and the ways to explain the methods it follows .Science is based on methods that explain the way science goes on around the world and what is the importance of it that helps people understand things beyond imagination (Thomas Samuel Kuhn). The scientific ways of expressing the world and how it generates based on its history. The importance of science, the scientific methods, and the scientific expression of how the world generates based on its history are the three major descriptions of science. One of the important facts about science is the start of scientific rules and the way to explain the methods it follows (See Appendix 1). Science is based on the knowledge that humans have to know the mystery behind things that cover the truth behind something. Science has many rules that have been passed on by one of the greatest scientists that discovered the ways of life and things that were not predictable. The scientific method is a procedure of six steps they are stating the problem, collecting information, forming a hypothesis, performing experiments, analyzing the data (Alhazen), and making a conclusion. The first step to the scientific method is to stat the problem in which you wish to Answer. The second step is collecting information on the question answered. Making observations and study the things on the question you have more knowledge on the...

...Science is a methodical study of nature that forms testable explanations and predictions. An older and closely related meaning still in use today is that found for example in Aristotle, whereby "science" refers to the body of reliable knowledge itself, of the type that can be logically and rationally explained (see "History and etymology" section below). Since classical antiquity science as a type of knowledge was closely linked to philosophy. In the early modern era the two words, "science" and "philosophy", were sometimes used interchangeably in the English language. By the 17th century, "natural philosophy" (which is today called "natural science") had begun to be considered separately from "philosophy" in general. However, "science" continued to be used in a broad sense denoting reliable knowledge about a topic, in the same way it is still used in modern terms such as library science or political science. In modern use, "science" is a term which more often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, and not the knowledge itself. It is "often treated as synonymous with ‘natural and physical science’, and thus restricted to those branches of study that relate to the phenomena of the material universe and their laws, sometimes with implied exclusion of pure mathematics. This is now the dominant sense in ordinary use." This narrower sense of "science" developed as a part of science became a distinct enterprise of defining "laws of nature", based on early examples such as......

Geologists try to understand the history of our planet, by reading the physical structures and processes. Geologists study various forms of Earth formations such as: marine, sedimentology (rocks), pedology (soil), structural, and geomorphology (landforms). Some great examples of geologic studies are: the Grand Canyon and San Andreas Fault. * Meterology - The science in which scientist study the weather. Meteorologists gather and analysis data on the conditions of the atmosphere. Meteorologists study weather phenomena such as Tornados, Hurricanes, Tsunami, Blizzards, Thunder and Lighting Storms. They use tools such as satellite imagery, weather balloons (twice a day, everyday one is released), radars, hygrometer (measures humidity), barometer (measures atmospheric pressure), and an anemometer (measures wind speed). * Oceanography - Study of the Earth’s oceans and seas. Some types of oceanography include: marine geology (plate tectonics and study of the ocean floor), physical oceanography (physical attributes of the ocean), meteorologic oceanography (the atmosphere and the ocean interact). * Hydrology - the study of the movement, distribution, and quality of water throughout the Earth.
