Okeanos Explorer Searches The Deep Sea

What Will They Find Next?

There is a reason why explorers have always gone forth—they are rewarded. And so not surprisingly there have been many rewards for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Okeanos Explorer which is exploring the ocean floor, several miles beneath the surface, near the Marianas Trench. In this far away land the mission has found all manner of strange life forms never before seen. You can watch the video live and, as one report put it, “The video makes for strangely addicting viewing. There's a constant cliffhanger: What will they find next?”


What they have found is an array of incredible, and lowly (pun intended), creatures. Surely Ralph Cudworth and John Ray would have, by this point, doubled down on their infra-dignitatem argument that such creatures are beneath the Creator’s dignity. There must have been an intermediate creative force to account for the muck and its inhabitants, not to mention those bungles and errors we find in creation.


Isn't it amazing what those random mutations will come up with? (And no, natural selection doesn’t help).

  1. In many respects, we know more about the moon than we know about the deep ocean.

    I had a prof who explained it quite well. If our entire knowledge of the surface of the earth was what we could garner by lowering small sampling devices from a balloon on a cloudy day, it would still be more that we know about the deep sea.

    1. The same can be said for evolution. We know more about the moon than we do about evolution. Evolutionists don't have a clue but they sure can raise a fuss and bluff. Too bad they cannot test their claims.

    2. Joke, you're the one always pushing YEC baraminology. What Biblical created "kinds" are these various marine animals?

      baraminology isn't just a YEC thing.


      Really Joke? Please post a few references where baraminolog is discussed with no mention of Biblical created "kinds".

      The more desperate your claims the more stupid they become.

    6. And for the record- all I have said is that science supports baraminology. Lenski's long term experiment supports it. Every experiment ever conducted supports it.

      That bothers evoTARD Timmy so it is forced to lash out with its ignorance out of desperation.

    7. LOL! Joke gets caught in another lie claiming baraminology has nothing to do with Biblical created "kinds".

    9. LOL! Joke doubles down on the stupidity.

      Baraminology = the study of Biblical created "kinds".

      You say all the evidence supports baraminology. You also say all the evidence supports ID. That means ID posits Biblical created "kinds". Just what we've been pointing out for years.

      Joke scores another own goal! :D

      Joke, how does this study support Biblical created "kinds"?

      Phylogenomic datasets provide both precision and accuracy in estimating the timescale of placental mammal phylogeny

      Abstract: The fossil record suggests a rapid radiation of placental mammals following the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) mass extinction 65 million years ago (Ma); nevertheless, molecular time estimates, while highly variable, are generally much older. Early molecular studies suffer from inadequate dating methods, reliance on the molecular clock, and simplistic and over-confident interpretations of the fossil record. More recent studies have used Bayesian dating methods that circumvent those issues, but the use of limited data has led to large estimation uncertainties, precluding a decisive conclusion on the timing of mammalian diversifications. Here we use a powerful Bayesian method to analyse 36 nuclear genomes and 274 mitochondrial genomes (20.6 million base pairs), combined with robust but flexible fossil calibrations. Our posterior time estimates suggest that marsupials diverged from eutherians 168–178 Ma, and crown Marsupialia diverged 64–84 Ma. Placentalia diverged 88–90 Ma, and present-day placental orders (except Primates and Xenarthra) originated in a ∼20 Myr window (45–65 Ma) after the K–Pg extinction. Therefore we reject a pre K–Pg model of placental ordinal diversification. We suggest other infamous instances of mismatch between molecular and palaeontological divergence time estimates will be resolved with this same approach.

      Go ahead Chubs, show the support for baraminology.

    13. How does it support unguided evolution? How does it support the evolution of different types of organisms?

      How can we test the claim that different types of mammals evolved?

      Phylogeny is based on genetic similarities and genetic similarities are evidence for a common design- see Linnaean classification.

    14. You're the one who made the stupid claims about baraminology

      That is your opinion, asswipe. However it is obvious that you are too stupid to understand what i post.

      Baraminology is a CONCEPT of limited evolution. And that concept would exist regardless of the Bible and regardless of YEC. But then again you are too stupid to understand that

    15. YEC Joke G

      Baraminology is a CONCEPT of limited evolution.


      LOL! This is what makes Joke Gallien so entertaining! It's when he gets caught saying something incredibly stupid then tries to lie his way out of it!

      Baraminology does NOT refer to the general concept of limited evolution. It was a word specifically coined by a creationist combining the Hebrew "bara" (create) and "min" (kind) to describe the "kinds" that went on Noah's Ark. There is no place in any reference anywhere in which the word is used to mean anything but Biblical created "kind".

      That's why we love Joke Gallien the IDiot Creationist clown. Always finding new ways to lie and embarrass himself. This one will go up there with his famous "ice isn't water" and "wavelength = frequency" brain farts. :D

      You are hilarious when you lie and squirm, that's for sure! :D

    19. LoL! You are one willfully ignorant bitch, Timmy. What does baraminology say- it says that evolution is limited and can only produce similar kinds of organisms. It says that descent with modification is limited in that only similar types of organisms arise.

      Your point is moot and just exposes your desperation.

      Hey Chubs, why didn't you post the rest from your same source?

      "Baraminology is a recent creation science origins model and classification system — technically, a creationist biosystematic method — consisting of the study of "baramins", or created kinds. It roughly coincides with cladistics, the system used by evolutionary scientists. Baraminology observes the fact that that all animals are descended from the original created kinds, and in the case of land-dwelling creatures, from the pairs taken on Noah's ark. It seeks, among other things, to establish the relationship between different species of the same baramin"

      What are the limits of these designs Chubs? The paper above shows no limits in the mammal clade over the last 160+ million years. That certainly directly contradicts baraminology.

      Genetics. There is a different set of genes responsible for minor variations and changes in body type. One set is variable while the other isn't.

      No, it doesn't. It assumes it. The evidence they use is also evidence for a common design.

      Where's your evidence for these claimed limits?

      Lenski, all observational and experimental data.

      And I am waiting for you to show how it supports unguided evolution and evolution of different types of mammals.
