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.

The Dark Side of Dark Matter Hunts

Dark matter is still a no-show. What will it take for cosmologists to give up on a fruitless quest?

More Natural Selection Fails

Attempts to explain life by natural selection evaporate upon critical examination. And yet the theory lives on.

Running Is a Complex Balance of Rapid Reflexes

If you thought about how complex running is while running, you might trip and fall over. Read this while sitting down.

Saturn’s Ring Moons Collect Ring Dust

How long have these little moons been gathering ring dust on their equators? Scientists continue rummaging through more than 635 gigabytes of data collected by the Cassini spacecraft during its 13-year mission at Saturn. Recently, they processed detailed images of the innermost “ring moons” of Saturn, some of them which orbit within gaps inside the […]

Dead Sea Salt Cave Is Longest of Its Kind

Cave explorers have determined that a passageway inside a mountain of salt in Israel is the longest salt cave in the world.

Misinterpreting Fossil Graveyards

Fossils are real, but the stories concocted to explain how mixed-up animals became buried together involve assumptions.

Science Media Tolerates Silliness

As long as you are a secular Darwinian, you can get away with anything. Are Aliens Ignoring Us? Maybe We’re Already Their Captives in a ‘Galactic Zoo’ (Live Science). You can use “maybe” to tell any tall tale. Mindy Waisberger gets away with imagining, in a “science” media site, that space aliens—for which there is […]

Still No Explanation for Matter/Antimatter Imbalance

An astrophysicist explains that the predominance of matter in our universe is just weird, and has no explanation.

Carnivorous Plants Show Attention to Detail

Two plants that baffled Darwin are best admired for their design than for their evolution. Most people have seen the hinged snap-shut cages of the Venus flytrap. Some know that the insides of the leaves have three trigger hairs each, which must be touched twice in succession at a minimum interval of time for the […]

Birds with Modern Traits Flew Over Dinosaurs

Several aspects of the dinosaur-to-bird evolution don't make sense in the light of evolution.

Was the Apostle Paul a Book Burner?

Paul warned that Christ followers would be slandered. A book review in Nature shows it is still going on.

Soft Tissue in Biggest Ever Cambrian Fossil Bonanza

Chinese scientists are uncovering shale with the best-preserved Cambrian animals ever found.

What Is Scientifically Significant?

A common measure in scientific papers is under fire, possibly invalidating thousands of research papers.

No, Grandparents Are Not Products of Evolution

Is nothing sacred? Evolutionists try to explain grandparents by Darwinism, but run into conundrums —while dishonoring seniors.
