Induced Stem Cells Get Faster, Better, Cheaper
September 24, 2013
Scientists have not only made the production of induced pluripotent stem cells much more efficient, but also have made them just as capable as embryonic stem cells of being able to produce any cell type.
Biblical Archaeology Still Has Much to Discover
September 18, 2013
Some exciting discoveries in Jerusalem and other near eastern sites emphasize the fact that archaeologists have much more to explore in the lands of the Bible.
Darwinist Intolerance Is Intensifying
September 15, 2013
Some recent cases of intolerance against Darwin skeptics are so extreme, they defy all logic or propriety. Yet when Darwinists promote radical ideas, they get a pass.
"Evidence-Based" Findings May Not Be
September 12, 2013
Patients are encouraged to seek only "evidence-based" treatments for disease, but a look behind the scenes of clinical trials reveals some of the same human foibles that plague any science: shortcomings in honesty and transparency.
Ethical Stem Cells Can Be Used Unethically
September 1, 2013
Induced pluripotent stem cells allow researchers to ethically create any cell type from an adult cell, raising hopes for regenerative medicine. Eyebrows started to raise recently, though, when labs grew brains with them and turned others into sperm and egg cells.
Stem Cell Science Can Proceed Ethically
August 19, 2013
With adult and induced pluripotent stem cells in abundance, it should not be necessary to destroy human embryos to understand stem cell science.
Scientists Are Not Experts on Values
August 18, 2013
The "fact-value split" is a dubious distinction, illustrated by several recent articles. Scientists cannot act as if their findings are values-free.
Invisible Influence of Plants Coming to Light
August 13, 2013
The air is filled with substances we barely notice – molecules produced by plants – but they have profound effects on climate and ecology.
Thank Evolution that Nothing Is Evil (or Good)
August 1, 2013
When evolutionists discuss the evolution of war, or of monogamy, or of religion, they rob mankind of any basis for judging good and evil.
Amazing Cures from Adult Stem Cells
July 29, 2013
Regrowing organs and other miracle cures may be coming to a hospital near you, thanks to progress with adult stem cells.
Stem Cell Wars Continue
July 14, 2013
The race continues between scientists desperately seeking a rationale for harvesting human embryos and those who say, having adult stem cells and iPS cells available, they are unnecessary – and their use is unethical.
Evolutionists Two-Faced About Academic Freedom
July 8, 2013
Compare two countries: in one, when their hegemony is threatened, evolutionists plead for academic freedom. In another, they deny it to those who want a chance to debate evolution.
Mad Scientists Poised on the Slippery Slope
June 30, 2013
Stem cells can do good or harm, depending on their source. When scientists think themselves above ethics, watch out.
Science News Sites Promote Leftist Ideology
June 26, 2013
Celebrating gay marriage is not the only leftist position frequently advocated by secular science news sites. They follow party-line liberal views with few exceptions, and now openly advocate leftist ideas.
Mind Your Matters, Evolutionist
June 7, 2013
Several recent articles illustrate the mental struggle materialists have with human uniqueness, particularly the mind and consciousness.
