Are Hobbits Human?

Two of the most mysterious hominin fossils are in the news again, and opinions are flying every direction. Are the little people of Indonesia and South Africa just small versions of us? Wherever they came from, and whatever they were doing in the caves in which they were found, they don’t fit evolutionary expectations. The […]

Why Was Civilization So Late in Coming?

According to evolutionists, modern man appeared 200,000 years ago, but civilization appeared only 8,000 years ago. We examine their explanations.

More Upsets in Human Origins Stories

When it comes to a consensus on how humans evolved, there's no "there" there.

Media Perpetuates Lazy Thinking

Lazy reporters don't do their homework, two critics in different fields complain.

Early Man Foot Kicks Evolution

Fossil footprints identical to modern human prints cast serious doubt on the evolutionary timeline.

More Early Man Troubles (Again)

Bones have a way of whacking the stories made up about them.

More Hobbit Bones Found

Indonesian fossils extend evolutionary timeline but create new problems.

Antique Homo Claims Threatened by New Bones

The number of potential overhauls in thinking from this thigh bone in China is staggering.

Evaluating Homo naledi

Lee Berger's remarkable cache of hominid bones found deep in a South African cave is generating a lot of news, but major questions remain.

Give Early Man More Credit

From cave to Stone Age, ancient people deserve more respect for their intelligence and capabilities than evolutionary anthropologists give them.

Neanderthal News and the Limits of Organic Material Survival

Red blood cells and DNA samples raise questions about the decay time of soft tissue and genetic material.

Body Diversity Threatens to Undermine Paleoanthropology

People don't all look the same today; body types vary tremendously. Why should we assume differently about the past?

Homo erectus Joins Art Society

Etchings on a shell said to be 500,000 years old are shaking up evolutionary paleoanthropologists. Why? Evidence of abstract thinking far too early.

Early Man Findings Contradict Evolution

Not only has man always been man, he could not have lived as many years ago as claimed.

Paleoanthropologist Overthrows Darwinian Tree of Man: We Are All One

A veteran paleoanthropologist says the discoveries of 2013 have replaced Darwin's tree picture of human evolution with a "braid."

More Discoveries Contradict Human Evolution Story

As more findings fail to fit the Darwinian picture, the evolutionary story of man appears to be unraveling.

Bee Brain Shows Design Matters Over Size

Honeybees can be trained to grasp conceptual relationships, new experiments show, demonstrating that it's not just brain size that governs ability.

Wrong Again: Several Species of Homo Collapse Into One

A well-preserved complete skull from Dmanisi, Georgia, has ignited a firestorm, threatening to declassify various claimed species of Homo into one, Homo erectus.

More Reasons to Doubt the Evolutionary Caveman Story

Complex behaviors showing foresight and planning are adding to a long list of contradictions to evolutionary explanations about "brute" ancestors.

Meet Your New Teacher, Prof. Neanderthal

Far from being dumb brutes stuck in caves, Neanderthals may have taught modern people techniques that are still used today.

Homo erectus were good pitchers

Science news sites are talking about the evolution of human throwing, but it's mostly speculation based on prior faith in Darwinism. The real story is good design in the human shoulder.

Are These Horse Genes Really 700,000 Years Old?

News sites are celebrating a "spectacular" new record for fossil DNA, claiming horse genes found in permafrost are 700,000 years old, placing the common ancestor two million years earlier than thought.

Paleofantasy Runs Amok

Early-man researchers continue to weave fantastical tales on flimsy evidence.

With Caveman Science, The Dream Is Alive

It's difficult to believe any other vaunted science than cosmology would be so rife with fact-free speculation. Well, maybe paleoanthropology, too.

What's Up with Alley Oop?

Here are some recent stories about human evolution. Some might deserve to be in the comics.

Human Evolution Puzzles & Problems

Recent stories on human evolution continue to illustrate ongoing problems that overturn long-held beliefs.

Human Variability Can Be Rapid

All living humans are interfertile – one species by definition. People from all parts of the globe can marry and have children, even though global travel is relatively recent in human history. Yet we know there is considerable variability between tribes and nationalities. Does this variability take millions of years? Does it lead to the origin of new human species? Recent evidence shows that variations can be rapid, both genetic and acquired, without reducing interfertility.

Early Man Stories Evolve

Early man evolved, evolutionary scientists assure us. But it's not clear what is evolving more: our ancestors, or the tales told about them.

Early Man Was Like Us

Human evolution theory has been dealt more body blows this month, raising questions whether it can sustain any more injuries after a decade of repeated punches and concussions. How many times can a theory take the “everything you know is wrong” body slam? We’ve already seen Neanderthals promoted to fully human status. Now, some evolutionists are claiming that the “missing links” on the way to modern humans were all interfertile with us.

How the Reporter Evolved Its Silliness

When it comes to evolutionary stories, reporters have a knack for propounding the silliest notions about human origins. This tendency is evident in several recent science news stories about early man propounding, with nary a blush, outlandish claims with little evidence – or no evidence whatsoever.
