Strange and Wonderful Animals Explored

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

Mammals vs. Evolution

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

Overqualified Mammals

Here are some mammals with capabilities that exceed the requirements of mere survival.

The New Horse Series: Genomes Confuse "Textbook Example of Evolution"

Horses, asses and zebras show evidence of gene flow despite extreme chromosome rearrangements.

Darwinism Is a Constant; Just-So Stories Are Variables

Stories about the evolution of particular organisms often replace older stories, but the main plot is unalterable.

Life Shows Exquisite Engineering and Optimization

Engineers drool over animal capabilities. How would mutation and natural selection deal with these examples of design perfection?

Did Zebras Invent Their Own Stripes?

The explanations some evolutionists give for fur and feather patterns sound like tales of talking animals planning out their new fashion lines.

Wave the Stripes on the Zebra

One of Kipling’s Just-So Stories is “How the Leopard Got His Spots.” In the fanciful tale for children, the sandy-colored leopard and the Ethiopian make an arrangement to share features so that they can camouflage themselves in the forest. Spots and stripes are widespread in the living world, but how do they come about? Surely science can come up with a better explanation than Kipling’s. Just so, a recent scientific paper suggests that understanding the process is still a long way off.
