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.

Most Armored Dinosaurs Found Upside Down

Why are 81% of ankylosaur fossils found belly up? With clever storytelling, you can accommodate this to evolution's long ages.

“Cosmologists Are Often Wrong, But Never in Doubt”

Astronomy used to be the flagship model of observational science. Now, the method is: embrace the dogma, then hunt for obscure details that might support it.

Dust a Major Problem on Non-Earth Worlds

You can't just beam down to a planet and start walking around. That dust under your feet can cause major problems.

Unchallenged Darwinism Produces Sloppy Science

Any science needs open debate, but Darwinism is different: Big Science forbids it. Here are examples of ridiculous speculations that result. An Ancient Virus May Be Responsible for Human Consciousness (Rafi Letzter at Live Science). Your rationality is a mistake. Your ancient ancestor caught a virus, and woke up, transforming from zombie to person. This […]

Neanderthal Art Found: Last Barrier to Full Human Status Falls

They were strong, skilled hunters, with large brains. They interbred with 'modern humans.' But they have always been disparaged because they left no art. Till now.

Natural Selection Is Not Predictable

Every once in awhile, biologists argue over whether evolution is predictable. The latest flap over stick insects sticks up for predictability, but flops.

Viruses From Distant Lands Fall from the Sky

Every day, billions of viruses are carried by high winds from continent to continent.

Basener, Sanford Defend Paper Critiquing Fisher’s Theorem, II

Bill Basener and John Sanford recently critiqued Fisher's Theorem, a long-trusted model for neo-Darwinism. Two evolutionary geneticists responded. Here is Part II their counter-response.

Scientists Not Always Trained to Be Critical Thinkers

A trainer of graduate students at a prestigious university wants to put the Ph back in PhD. Can scientists be good at detail work but dumb at logic? Gundula Bosch thinks so. She directs the R3 Graduate Science Initiative at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland. In Nature, she says she’s […]

Can There Be a Science of Near-Death Experiences?

A science paper catalogs near-death experiences. But can science boldly go where no one has ever gone before?

The Evolution of the Darwin Fish

The Darwin Fish scientific method: Draw a fish. Draw legs on it to mock Christians who use it as a symbol. Then furiously hunt for evidence that a fish with feet existed.
