Peer review is touted as a demonstration of the self-critical nature of science. But it is a human system. Everybody involved brings prejudices, misunderstandings and gaps in knowledge, so no one should be surprised that peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. — Drummond Rennie, Nature 7/07/16
I just found this site earlier today, and I can't stop reading! This seems like a great place to keep myself updated in this heated debate between Creation science and Darwinian nonsense. Though being an electrical engineer student, I may or may get involved with much biology in my future career; I still hope that my appreciation for God’s design may help me become a better designer myself. — an undergrad in California
Practicing biologists may be surprised that there is still debate about what kind of a force, principle or process ‘natural selection’ actually is, on what sort of entities it might act and the meaning of ‘fitness’. We readily invoke, but often cannot easily explicate, these concepts. — W. Ford Doolittle, Current Biology, Jan. 2015
On January 31, 2018, our Creation Scientist of the Month, at age 90, will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Explorer 1: America’s first satellite. He was not only present at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) on the historic day of January 31, 1958, he was a key figure in its success. Dr Henry Richter managed the satellite, its instruments, and its ground communications, and was the first to confirm that it had reached orbit.
This was before America even had a space agency. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was formed as a result of the success of the Explorer satellites, which had imbued Americans with a renewed sense of pride after the Russians had beaten them to space with Sputnik 1 (October 4, 1957) and Sputnik 2 (November 3, 1957). Richter continued advancing space technology as America began the race to the moon. But his own trajectory would not be smooth. Henry Richter (not to be confused with Charles Richter of ‘Richter Scale’ fame) would experience a series of mishaps and failures before understanding the true secret of success. Along the way, he would also find satisfying explanations for the amazing designs he grew to appreciate on his own vessel: ‘Spacecraft Earth.’
Pigments from crinoids fossilized in early Mesozoic strata are identical to modern counterparts.
Darwin wanted to explain humans from bacteria. He can’t get there by just protecting what bacteria already had.
Leslie Orgel’s last written article before his death shows no patience for hypothetical scenarios for the origin of life.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. (Isaiah 40:28)
