David Coppedge, B.S. Education, B.S. Physics, founded Creation-Evolution Headlines in late 2000 as a way to share science news he was encountering at NASA. It has grown into a highly-trusted source of news and commentary critical of the pro-Darwin consensus, providing analysis of breaking news of interest to creationists and evolutionists, without the Darwin spin. He has authored almost 5,000 entries at CEH since its inception.

David worked as a system administrator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory from 1996 to 2011, almost all of it as a member of the Cassini team. For 9 of his 14 years at JPL, he was Team Lead System Administrator, responsible for most of the ground system computers for the prestigious mission to Saturn. He worked on the Cassini operations support team from before launch through cruise, tour, prime mission, first extended mission, and into the second extended mission, getting to know many of the world's most elite planetary scientists. In addition, he led JPL tours and was a Cassini outreach speaker to civic groups and astronomy clubs.

Coppedge's career was cut short by his advocacy of intelligent design. Sharing DVD's on intelligent design occasionally with co-workers, he was accused by a coworker and reported to the Human Resources department, which accused him of 'harassment' and ethics violations. He was demoted from his Team Lead position and eventually terminated, becoming another member of the prestigious "Expelled" community. His experience led to a nationally-publicized court trial about discrimination and retaliation in the workplace, supported by the Alliance Defending Freedom and the Discovery Institute. Unfortunately for him, almost a year after the trial, the lone judge in the case decided against him in January 2013 without explanation

Coppedge now devotes more time to Creation-Evolution Headlines and other ministries seeking to show where the scientific evidence leads.

Abusing Science to Advance Wickedness

What the Bible calls wickedness, evolutionary 'science' calls normal: good, even. Have some secular scientists become the new priests of Baal?

Negative Selection Is Not What Darwin Wanted

Darwin wanted to explain humans from bacteria. He can't get there by just protecting what bacteria already had.

Mosasaurs Show No Clear Record of Evolution

The tricks of the Darwin trade come out in force to explain these aquatic reptiles that evolutionists maintain came from land lizards.

Doubts About Climate Consensus

Several papers make it hard to believe that humans are to blame for climate change, or that scientists even know what is going on.

There's a gap between the D ring and the planet that is empty enough to allow the spacecraft to pass through, taking incredible pictures and data.

Creation Geologist Fights Secular Bullies

He has every credential a geologist could wish for, but the consensus bullies will not even let him collect rocks that might question their dogma. Dr. Andrew Snelling has a PhD in geology from the University of Sydney. He has published in peer-reviewed journals. He has taught geology on numerous trips through the Grand Canyon. […]

Homo naledi Is Young

The media are abuzz with disappointment that this cache of bones in South Africa is too young to be a missing link. Homo naledi is one of the most astonishing “hominin” fossil finds in recent years, on par with the “hobbits” (Homo floresiensis) of Indonesia. Debates have gone wild since Lee Berger announced hundreds of […]

Early Earth Was Flat and Ocean-Covered, Secular Scientists Claim

No mountains, covered with water β€” does that sound vaguely familiar?

Weekend Digest, May 6, 2017

Here's a collection of quick takes on interesting developments in the science news, from Saturn to a possible cure for malaria; from your liver to Sunday funnies.

Archive Classic: The Mystery of the Ultra-Pure Sandstones

Reprinted from June 27, 2003, this mystery is worth considering still. What caused these global deposits that are not being formed today? R. H. Dott, Jr (Univ. of Wisconsin) has a problem. He’s been trying to explain a geological puzzle for 50 years, and it is still unresolved.

Small Wonders: Arthropods With Superpowers

Robot designers know that making things big is easy, but making them small is hard. How do you pack a multitude of capabilities in a tiny space? Consider these little guys.

Ancient DNA Recovered from Caves

New techniques are allowing scientists to extract ancient DNA from cave soil. But is it really as old as claimed?

Big Science Culture Condones Misconduct

Dishonest behavior by scientists is rampant, but nothing seems to change. Can evolutionary theory help?

Bubbles Scream Life

It might be a fungus. It might be half a billion years older than previously thought. It might rewrite the evolutionary history of complex life, including humans. What is it?

Atheist Writes Cosmological Bible

From Genesis to Revelation, Lawrence Krauss has reality all figured out. A book reviewer in Nature is not so sure.

Saving Evolution with a New Narrative about Dinosaur Soft Tissue

The ability of evolutionary 'scientists' to distract attention from big questions and avoid the obvious has never been more evident.

Are Hobbits Human?

Are the little people of Indonesia and South Africa just small versions of us? Wherever they came from, and whatever they were doing in the caves in which they were found, they don't fit evolutionary expectations.

All Bears Are Brethren

The world-wide variations on bears could have come from one original type. It has been known that Alaskan brown bears can hybridize with polar bears. The resulting mixed breeds, sometimes called ‘pizzlies’ or ‘cappucino bears’, were thought to be rare. Now, in a surprising study from Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum, scientists have […]
