Wildfires burned Antarctica 75 million years ago

Evolutionists believe that some75 millions years agoa75 millions uears agoAntarctica had fires, they believe that this took place when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth

According to a new study, published online Occtober  20 in the journal Polar Research finds. that Antarctica's James Ross Island was home to a temperate forest of conifers, ferns and flowering plants known as angiosperms, as well as to a slew of dinosaurs. But it wasn't a total paradise; ancient paleo-fires burned parts of those forests to a crisp, leaving behind charcoal remnants that scientists have now scooped up and studied.

They say that this happened during the late Cretaceous period (100 million to 66 million years ago), one of the warmest periods on Earth,


This study study brings to mind Noah’s Flood that ravaged the Earth 4,500 years ago. Before that, Antartica was probably  non existen. 

But they have found dinosaur bones in Canada as well as petrified forest in Antartica.

Evolutionists claim that pterosaurs evolved their skills to fly

Michael Pittman and colleagues state that pterosaurs evolved pterosaur a muscular wing–body junction providing multifaceted flight performance benefits. They say that these animals  lived for over 160 million years but we cannot be sure how they were such sturdy fliers  

This shows how scientist through about the word evolution. However, they also said that soft tissues guide the animals in their flight.

This means that they can’t be that old, as soft tissue cannot be millions of years old.

Portuguese honours its Schindler

Portugal honoured Aristides de Sousa Mendes, a former diplomat for the country, who helped save thousands of Jews from the Nazis during Second World War,

 He probably saved 30 000 refugees of which 10,000 were Jewish. The numbers were the greatest anyone could save during the holocauust.  

 “People who at the decisive moment put their and their family’s safety at risk for the greater good are rare. Sousa Mendes was one of those people,” said Speaker of the Portuguese Parliament Eduardo Ferro Rodrigues, reported AP on Tuesday.

A tomb with his name was placed in the country’s National Pantheon.

 Portugal was a neutral country during the Second World War.  Mendes disobeyed orders made by his superiors, including from dictator António Salazar, when he was a consul in Bordeaux, France. In 1940, he issued visas to those who feared that the Nazis would hunt for them. The Portuguese visas allowed Jews and others to escape via Lisbon on the way to the United States and other countries.

 Mendes was fired as a result and died in poverty in 1954, according to the report. The Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem recognizes him as a Righteous Gentile and is noted in “The Righteous Among the Nations.”

 In 2017, Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo announced Mendes being given the country’s highest honour: the Grand Cross of the Order of Liberty.

Frank Foley was a British spy who saved 6,000 Jews, and Sir Nicholas Winton also saved 669 of the Jewish children in Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia.

Scientists say that they have found a 1 metre or 3.3 foot long sea scorpion in what is now China. They say that its assumed age was 435 million years ago.  

They have called it Terropterus xiushanensis and say it was the apex predator of its time and add that it lived during the  Silurian period, between approximately 443.8 million and 419.2 million years ago:

 Scorpions are living fossils, They have not had evolution for 430 Million Years.”

Little green men are not sending radio waves

The radio waves that have come here where not send by little green men. Scientist are not sure what is emitting them.  

”The source of this radiation has been nicknamed “Andy’s object” after Ziteng Wang at the University of Sydney in Australia, who goes by the name Andy and first discovered the radio waves. He and his colleagues spotted the emissions six times in 2020 using the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder radio telescope. They made further observations with the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa.

We have never heard such sounds before. But even secular scientists say that little green men did not send them.

No live on Venus - that might have been dry for ages .

 A few weeks ago, the  science papers were shouting there’s live on Venus, However, now it seems that it is not – and has been not habitable.

For the past decades, Venus has been seen as a potential abode for life. For instance, models  based on evolution have said that Venus had bog oceans that they thought wuuld have kerpt live going for millions of years.

For live to endure, it has to float - floating in the clouds about 30 miles (50 kilometers) up, where temperatures and pressures are similar to what we enjoy at sea level here on Earth

 

However, the new study, which was published online Wednesday (Oct. 13) in the journal Nature, scientists led by Martin Turbet, a postdoctoral researcher at the Geneva Astronomical Observatory in Switzerland, simulated the climate of ancient Venus using a new model. And they came up with very different results. 

 

If the scientist are right, Venus has always been warm and dry, as it is today.

 

This has a message also for exoplanets: The ones  that orbit near the inner edge of the conventional habitable zone, where liquid water can exist on a planet’s surface, might not actually be habitable," the authors write.
