Volcano Date Was 3,000% Wrong

Volcanoes at the south end of California's Salton Sea erupted as recently as the time of Christ, not 30,000 years ago, and may be active today.

Archer Fish Amplifies Muscle with Physics

The secret of the archer fish’s powerful spits has been discovered, and it isn’t powerful muscles. The fish that shoots bugs out of the air uses physics, a paper in PLoS ONE declared.  By letting physics amplify the momentum in the drop shot out of the water, the fish achieves six times the wallop its […]

Dinosaur Soft Tissue Case Strengthened

At a meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, Mary Schweitzer gave more evidence she found soft tissue in dinosaur bone.

Butterfly Cities and Spider Optics

Skycrapers of the future may shine in brilliant butterfly colors. Optical biosensors may be made from spider webs. These are just a few of the engineering marvels coming from biomimetics—the imitation of nature.

Shining Light on Dark Energy

Fifteen years after cosmologists proposed the existence of dark energy, they have learned nothing about it. In “Cosmology: Out of the Darkness,” Matthew Chalmers discussed the current thinking of Brian Schmidt, who shared the Nobel prize in 2011 for discovering cosmic acceleration (actually, an inference based on light from supernovae; see 9/30/2012).  “Fifteen years after […]

New Jaws Sequel Has Evolutionists Teething

The evolution of teeth got pushed back farther in time, thanks to analysis of a placoderm fossil.

Making Saturn's Moons with a Bang

Impacts are a favorite tool for planetary scientists to create beautiful things.

The Missing Zinc: Moon Rocks Still Tell Tales

Apollo ended 50 years ago, Neil Armstrong is dead, but lunar geologists are still using the moon rocks they brought home to construct a story of the moon's "evolution".

More Evidence Our Solar System Is Uniquely Suited for Life

With over 2,000 extrasolar planets found around nearly as many stars, there's still no place like home.

Weekend Grab Bag

Here are links to recent science findings and claims sure to stimulate thinking and further research.

Upper Limit Set on DNA Age

Forget Jurassic Park; DNA cannot last anywhere near 65 million years, researchers say.

Cambrian Explosion Began with Big Brains

A fossil Cambrian arthropod shows a large complex brain, prompting evolutionists to propose that evolution ran backwards from there.

Explaining Inland Seas Without a Flood

The Great Salt Lake and other large extinct inland seas in the desert remain a challenge to explain by conventional geology.

Lemur-fish, Vege-fang and other Fossil Follies

Fossils are doing just fine, but the scientists who interpret them are having a rough week (or century).

Supernova Dating and Classification Is Not Simple

Bang! goes a star. Watch how fast its contents move, and you know the date, right? Watch its light curve, and you know the type, right?
