Welcome to Real Science Radio with co-hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams who talk about science to debunk evolution and to show the evidence for the creator God including from biology, geology, astronomy, and physics. (For example, mutations will give you bad legs long before you'd get good wings.) Not only do we get to debate Darwinists and atheists like Lawrence Krauss, AronRa, and Eugenie Scott, and easily take potshots from popular evolutionists like PZ Myers, Phil Plait, and Jerry Coyne, but we also occasionally interview the outstanding scientists who dare to challenge today's accepted creed that nothing created everything.
RSR's 14c Everywhere Pt. 3
RSR/BEL 2-27-21 * 14c: Carbon-14 doesn't lie. It only lasts thousands of years and yet is plentiful in fossils and diamonds claimed to be millions and billions of years old. On today's program Real Science Radio's Bob Enyart presents the work of an PhD from MIT in mechanical engineering, Dr. Wallt Brown. * Telethon Ending: Please consider helping us down the final stretch! We're at $40,095 toward our telethon goal of $50,000 and anticipating a likely contribution of more than $10,000 from a Christian men's group in Canada hoping to help us meet our goal!

RSR's List of 14c Everywhere It's Not Supposed to Be Pt. 2
Carbon-14 doesn't lie. It only lasts thousands of years and yet is plentiful in fossils and diamonds claimed to be millions and billions of years old. Real Science Radio hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams continue their discussion of Carbon-14 by adding to 14c factoids, presenting our List of Carbon-14 Everywhere It's Not Supposed to Be, and then they take neutron capture and knock it out of the ball park (specifically, out of Denver's Coors Field)! Telethon: The guys ask for help with their telethon goal of $50,000. If you can, please check out kgov.com/store or call us at 1-800-8Enyart (836-9278) to purchase our science resources, sign up for a subscription, or to make a one-time or monthly donation. And btw, we have a $750 matching offer, so you can double your gift if you'd like to be the one to match that! Thanks so much! Correction: The discoverer of carbon dating is Willard, not John, Libby. * Video Subscription: To order a monthly video subscription, just call 800-8Enyart or click here to receive our monthly: - Topical Videos - Sermon Videos - Bible Study Videos - BEL Televised Classics * 14c Factoids: - Our atmosphere has one carbon-14 atom for every one trillion carbon atoms. (one in a trillion) - 21 pounds of 14c are produced in the atmosphere every year! - Unstable radiocarbon decays with a half-life of 5,730 years. (half-life symbol = t1/2) - A solid ball of 14c the size of the Earth would all decay into nitrogen in less than a million years. - A gram of carbon has about 50 sextillion carbon atoms. (50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) - RSR co-host Fred has about 10 octillion total atoms in his body. (one octillion of carbon) - Fred, a big guy, carries around about 50 billion radiocarbon atoms! (50,000,000,000) - Fred's body experiences about 2,500 decays of 14c to nitrogen every second. (Don't tell Sandy!) - One 14c atom in a trillion carbon atoms is referred to as 100 percent modern carbon. (100 pMC) - Likewise, 100 14c atoms in a 100 trillion is referred to as 100 percent modern carbon. (100 pMC) - So 50 14c atoms in a 100 trillion carbon atoms is referred to as 50 percent modern carbon. (50 pMC) - Fifty percent modern carbon is interpreted as 5,730 years before present. (about 6,000 years BP) - The best AMS labs accurately count 14c atoms to even 0.001 of a percent modern carbon. (100th to a 1000th pMC) - Published lab measurements show processing introduces 1/10th to 3/10ths of a percent contamination. (~0.2 pMC) - So lab contamination adds one 14c atom to 250 in 500 trillion carbon atoms. (Yielding 251 of 500 trillion or 50.2 pMC.) - 14c "ages" get progressively significantly inflated as with bones from 873 AD dated to 200 years earlier. - Pompeii, destroyed in 79 AD, was expected to give appropriate ages but gave 2400 to 5800 years BP. - Old 14c "dates" are progressively too old and there's far too much C-14 in diamonds, etc., to be contamination!

Carbon-14 Everywhere It Shouldn't Be = Young Earth
* The 2021 Version of a RSR Classic: Carbon-14 doesn't lie. It has a relatively brief life and yet is plentiful in fossils and diamonds claimed to be millions and billions of years old. Carbon-14 can't be an anomaly, because it's not here and there but it's everywhere it shouldn't be. This radiocarbon is so unstable that a solid ball of 14c the size of the Earth would all decay into nitrogen in less than a million years. Real Science Radio hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams begin today's Carbon-14 program by airing Bob's phone conservation from 15 years ago with Jurassic Park film advisor Jack Horner. Bob offered Jack $23,000 to carbon date the soft tissue T. rex that his team had recently excavated. (See bflist.rsr.org for a list of dinosaur biomaterial fossil papers.) * Telethon: The guys ask for help with their telethon goal of $50,000. If you can, please check out kgov.com/store or call us at 1-800-8Enyart (836-9278) to purchase our science resources, sign up for a subscription, or to make a one-time or monthly donation. Thanks so much! * Correction: As reported already back in 1962 and 1984, plants do absorb carbon dioxide from their roots, but at 27:20 into today's program Bob unintentionally implied that was the only way. Of course most CO2 is abosbed through leaf stomata, pores that form typically on the underside of leaves. Also, at 25:45 the guys are talking about Prof. Steve Taylor of the University of Liverpool. * Time-Saving Google Creation Tool: Multiple Creation Site Search! * rsr.org/14c: For our full Carbon-14 page just click on over to rsr.org/14c.
Yet Another Squeeze: Animal Intelligence Squeezes Darwinism
We're adding "animal intelligence" to rsr.org/squeeze. The claim that apes should have the highest intelligence in the animal kingdom because we humans supposedly evolved from them turns out to be yet another fail. Did you know, for example, that certains species of birds demonstrate that they know what other birds are thinking? On today's Real Science Radio program Bob Enyart and Fred Williams discuss really fun and hugely significant examples of animal intelligence! Wait till you can hear what the lowly ant does! RSR thanks Answers in Genesis for publishing Dr. Joe Francis' article Smarter Than You Think which we've used as a framework for today's broadcast. Also, February is our annual telethon month and our goal is $50,000 so we can really use your help! We're only at a couple thousand dollars so far. So if you can, please check out kgov.com/store or call us at 1-800-8Enyart (836-9278) to purchase materials, sign up for a subscription, or to make a one-time or monthly donation. Thanks so much! From kgov.com/definitions: These are RSR-styled... - Animal: Excepting humans, a multicellular biological organism with specialized sense organs and voluntary movement. - Mammal: A warm-blooded vertebrate animal with hair or fur, females that secrete milk, and, except for the platypus and spiny anteater, the birth of live young. - Animal Kingdom: The animals of the world collectively, excluding insects and fish (which are more likened to biological robots than to volitional organisms) - Human being: A person, made in God's likeness, with body, soul and spirit (whereas animals have body and soul) - Plant: A biological organism that synthesizes nutrients in its leaves by photosynthesis (possessing a body but neither a soul or spirit). * One minute video of a magpie perceiving what many apes don't: * Otherwise, this is a great video on mole rats vocalizing: If you ignore the absurd claim made by Dr. Gary Lewin of Berlin's Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine about mole rats and human social behavior, this video announces extraordinary research and an exciting discovery! (If you have a choice, you might want to avoid the Max Delbrück Center for your own medical treatment. Researchers who remain so oblivious to the ubiquitous evidence against Darwinian rsr.org/evolution may also miss the insights needed to save your life.)
RSR Meets a Platypus
Real Science Radio hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams let a platypus help them expose the List of Ways Darwinists Invent their Tree of Life. Evolutionists change their selection of what evidence they use to show 'lineage', from DNA to fossils to genes to body plans to teeth to many specific anatomical features to proteins to behavior to developmental similarities to habitat to RNA, etc. and to a combination of such. Darwinism is an entire endeavor based on selection bias, a kind of logical fallacy. By anti-science they arbitrarily select evidence that best matches whichever evolutionary story is currently preferred. Join in as Bill the Platypus shows the way and make sure to see the 20-second video below of him swimming around the RSR studio. :)
Population Genetics Expert Explains the Darwin-Slaying Science
If one little baby ape, a long long time ago, had an especially helpful mutation, how long would it take before all apes inherited that single genetic improvement? Biologist Christopher Rupe (colleague of last week's guest, geneticist John Sanford) helps Real Science Radio get a better understanding of the science of population genetics. Bob Enyart asks Rupe about something called genetic fixation, about alleles, and the percentage of mutations that are beneficial. The discussion also asks, with the distribution of helpful mutations being exceedingly slower than a snail's pace, what is the pace of the accumulation of harmful mutations? Listeners will also learn about the test of the ape-to-man hypothesis, about how dissimilar chimp DNA is from the human genome, and why the Y chromosome should be the most similar but it is so wildly different that it's as close to a chick Y as a chimp Y! See also Mendel's Accountant, the web's software tool to simulate the theory of evolution. (Finally, we're working on getting a video of Rupe's college lecture so we can embed it on this page. And in the meantime, here's Chris' colleague's lecture at NIH:
Customer ReviewsSee All
I’m a new listener but long term YEC as well as former high school science teacher. Appreciate the material.
One small piece of criticism (hopefully in love) is the open/closing music, it sounds dated and juvenile. Creationist probably don’t care, but if you hoping to reach skeptics, maybe time to update your jingle (or lose it).
I love a good dialogue.. but attempting to debunk evolution is so 1565. I mean I could start a podcast called “The Sky is Purple” and bend data to make it seem plausible, but it doesn’t change the fact that most people interpret the sky as blue.
Keep at it
We need the understanding of how science is aligned with scripture that you have been bringing us. Keep it up and good job!
