THE most ambitious search so far for extraterrestrial intelligence has released its first data – and there are no aliens yet. The […]

Galaxy Evolution Crisis: Start Over

When you see the words “challenging” and “requires substantial revision” in the abstract, you know trouble is coming. Eleven astronomers from five continents are unanimous: this galaxy doesn’t fit current theory. Here’s what they found, as announced in Nature. (Note: z  is a designation of redshift, interpreted to be a function of remoteness in distance […]

Dark Matter is Still Very Dark and Very Mysterious

A research report in Nature announced the results of the latest experiment designed to prove the existence of Dark matter. In short: “Dark Matter Remains Elusive” (Xiangdong, 542:172. February 9, 2017). Dark matter is a hypothetical matter type that cannot be observed with any existing telescope system but, it is claimed, accounts for about 27% […]

Water Theories Evaporate

After decades of telling the public comets brought Earth's water, scientists are giving up on the idea. It was volcanoes, now they say.

Craters: Seeing Fake Patterns

Biologists build on models from geologists who build on models from planetologists. But what if the bottom model is false?

Secular Evolution Drives Smart People Insane

It's hard to say this delicately, but if left-leaning evolutionists really believe these things, they are certifiably wacko.

Now entering its final dramatic high orbits, the Cassini spacecraft is finding unexpected things for an assumed old planet.

Wishing Upon Star Formation

Many astronomy articles have a bad habit of assuming star formation without demonstrating or explaining it.

Three physicists claim to see cyclical variations in beta decay rates of two elements correlated with solar neutrino flux.

Alien Religion Unrebuked

Big Science only forbids some religions, like those with evidence. The wacky ones pass right by the censors.
