Biological Designs Worth Imitating

If these designs are so good that intelligent minds want to mimic them, who can believe they emerged by chance?

Darwin Follies and Fallacies, Part Three

It's hard to know where to stop with examples of Darwinian nonsense. For evolutionists, it's like April Fool every day. These are just some of the recent examples.

How Many More Anomalies Can Darwinism Take?

Darwinism survives not because it is empirically verified, but because it is a deduction from a tightly-held materialistic worldview.

Seamounts: No Speciation Here, Mate

These isolated habitats should be ideal labs for studying Darwin's origin of species, but the evidence just isn't there.

Stromatolites and Suppositions

We know some things about stromatolites, but we don't know what we don't know.

Small Creatures Have Super Strength

The most amazing physical feats in nature are performed by some of the smallest organisms.

Nature Inspires Hi-Tech Design

Scientists and engineers continue the gold rush to imitate nature's solutions to problems.

Secret Animal Hideouts

Small animals can hide out in secret places, even in your own home.

Tiny Organisms Control the World

An unexpected source that regulates global climate is found among the smallest of living things.

Fire and Brimstone: Why Earth Isn't Like Venus

Both planets have abundant sulfur, but Earth life has a way of cycling it for good.

Wonders Under the Sea

Three ocean creatures have surprised scientists with new discoveries of previously-unknown capabilities.

Chile Whale Fossil Site Explained

At least 40 baleen whales and other species of marine mammals fossilized in a dry desert of Chile have been explained with a "toxic bloom" theory. Does it explain all the findings?

Strange Animals and Stranger Facts About Them

The world is decorated with an astonishing diversity of animals. Here are some new discoveries about a few of them.

Turkeys Aren't Stupid

Turkeys that are inspiring homeland security technology are just one example of hot designs engineers are finding in the biosphere's treasure chest.

Crude Oil in One Hour, Not Millions of Years

A slurry of algae with the right heat and pressure can produce crude oil in one hour.

Quantum Secret of Photosynthesis Revealed

The magic of light capture by plants is so small and fast, its secrets are only now being understood.

Animal Olympians Inspire Engineers

Here are more stories about animals, plants and cells attracting scientists with their astonishing capabilities, proving that biomimetics is one of the hottest trends in science.

Is This Plant Really 30,000 Years Old?

A plant said to be 30,000 years old has been brought to life in Russia. A team resurrected a fruit from a rodent burrow in Siberian permafrost, getting it to grow into a whole plant that produces viable seeds. This is now the oldest age claim, by an order of magnitude, for plant material made to live again. Other scientists are startled that plant material could remain viable for so long, since cells have to repair their DNA continually. Other botany news bring different problems to evolutionary theory.

Biomimetics to the Rescue of Science

The booming field of biomimetics (imitating nature’s designs) is fascinating not only for the amazing products it promises, but for the fresh new opportunities it provides for science and engineering. From viruses to mammals, everything in the living world is now being seen in a new light: agents of innovation that humans can learn from. Here are just a few examples in recent news, arranged in order from large to small inspirational creatures.
