This Exoplanet Shouldn’t Exist

Astronomers are baffled by a Neptune-sized exoplanet with an atmosphere that should have burned up long ago.

Lunar Tunes: Dreaming for Theory Rescue

Oh what a tangled web they weave when they assume things have to be billions of years old to give Darwin time to evolve life by accident.

Sappy OOL Hypothesis Turns Sour

A spoonful of sugar helps an unrealistic origins story go down, but it doesn't make it nutritious.

Darwin’s Flawed Atoll Theory Still Taught

Rice University says Darwin’s theory of the slow buildup of coral atolls is “fatally flawed.” Study: Darwin’s theory about coral reef atolls is fatally flawed (Rice University). Darwin investigated other questions than evolution, such as the nature of barnacles, pigeons and things, but they all attempted to promote views of long ages and the gradual […]

Gumby Geology Stretches to Fit Darwin’s Timeline

Guess how fast the Sierra Nevada Mountains formed? In a "geologic instant" they're now claiming.

Two More Climate Snafus Found

Is the science really settled on climate change? Here are two more oversights in the models.

Unknowns Found in Climate Change Models

"Follow the science!" the consensus demands, and many politicians fall in line to look good. These stories cast doubt on the science.

Extraordinary Claim: Life on Venus?

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, scientists like to say. One smelly molecule is not enough to claim life.

Big Errors Common in Big Science

It’s in the nature of theories to be overturned by new data. So how much trust should be put in current theories? Even the positivists like the reporters in New Scientist recognize that “There is no such thing as scientific truth, just a set of provisional truths that are subject to revision or rejection when […]
