Design of Life Update: Marine Biology

The animal stars of Illustra Media's "Design of Life" documentaries are still in the news: this time, whales, dolphins, fish and sea turtles.

Design of Life Update: Birds

Illustra Media’s Design of Life documentaries only began to explore the marvels of life. In this entry, we look at more wonders among birds. Eggs come in a variety of sizes and shapes, as shown in a rapid-fire series in the Illustra film. In an “Egg Mythbuster” piece, Phys.org explains why some eggs are pear-shaped. […]

Design of Life Update: Butterflies

Illustra Media’s trilogy of documentaries only began to uncover the wonders of life. Here are updates on the series’ featured animals, this one on butterflies. Watch an amazing time-lapse video of butterfly wings developing in the chrysalis made by Nipam Patel of University of California at Berkeley. His lab assistant was able to extract tissue […]

Strange and Wonderful Animals Explored

Look at what scientists are learning about some common animals, and others not so common.

Evolution for the Birds

Birds have not evolved as much as evolutionary theories about them have.

Bird Non-Evolution from Dinosaurs

Losing traits won't make a dinosaur fly, and other conundrums in the presumed dinosaur-to-bird evolutionary story.

Two if By Sea: Earliest Americans Boated Down the Coast

The textbook theory of the first migration to the Americas across a land bridge is "dead in the water."

Flying Physics

In the world of flying animals, stories of remarkable physical engineering come to light.

How Long Can Comets Bust Up and Re-form?

If comets repeatedly break up and re-coagulate, how long could that recur?

News from the Living Waters

Animal heroes of the Illustra film "Living Waters" are still making headlines.

Is the truth in the teeth? Modern-looking human teeth in a Chinese cave create improbable migration patterns and dates.

Evolutionary Anthropologists Startled by Racial Mixing in Africa

If they didn't expect recent genetic mixing from Europe into Africa, how certain are they about older human migrations?

New Thoughts on Habitable Planets

Astrobiologists are trying to standardize the requirements for habitable planets. Do they get them all?

Small animals without backbones are cleverly designed, leaving evolutionists scratching their heads.

Surprises from the Ocean

News from marine biology and geology are unexpected from a long-age, evolutionary perspective.

Animal Excellence Exceeds Mere Survival

A tiny bird could live like other birds do without having to fly non-stop for 1,700 miles. Other examples abound of over-design in the animal world.

Why Birds Don't Crash

A bird flying through a forest or city needs the reactions of a champion video gamer. It's got the software to do it.

Physical and Geological Hurdles on the Darwinian Race

Can the smooth big-bang-to-brain story of evolution jump the physical and geological hurdles along the way?

Mammals vs. Evolution

Whether living or fossilized, mammals do not tell an evolutionary story.
