Bee Brain Shows Design Matters Over Size
October 22, 2013
Honeybees can be trained to grasp conceptual relationships, new experiments show, demonstrating that it's not just brain size that governs ability.
3-D Printing Is a Simplified Form of Biomimetics
October 21, 2013
One of the hottest industrial revolutions in progress is 3-D printing. It can't hold a candle, though, to biological materials construction.
The Ocean's Most Efficient Swimmer Is… A Jellyfish
October 19, 2013
They look so lazy, drifting among the waves, but jellyfish are powered by such efficient mechanisms, the Navy wants to imitate them.
Animal Engineering Is Not Just a Metaphor
October 10, 2013
Some evolutionists complain that talk of molecular machines and engineered systems in the living world is a misleading figure of speech. Why, then, do human engineers seek to reverse-engineer them?
Does Physics Drive Evolution?
October 8, 2013
Some recent evolutionary papers appear to make physical laws not just constraints on natural selection, but guiding hands that build optimal designs.
Global Flood OK if Proposed by Evolutionists
October 4, 2013
Another attempt to explain the Cambrian explosion proposes a global flood that tapped the capacity of simple animals to evolve new body plans suddenly.
Better Health Through Nature
October 3, 2013
Humans were meant to thrive in the environment. We sequester ourselves from the natural world at our own peril.
Evolutionists Move Dates Around Often: Is It Progress?
October 2, 2013
Hardly a month goes by without a new story that such-and-such a plant or animal evolved earlier or later than thought, often by hundreds of millions of years. Are they converging on a clearer picture, or just shuffling the chairs on the deck?
How Birds Evolved by Incorrigible Storytelling
September 30, 2013
An article by a free-lance science writer about dinosaurs evolving into birds takes the cake for speculative just-so storytelling, but it got published and republished anyway.
Thousands of Dinosaur Tracks Found in Alaska
September 26, 2013
Nearly inside the Arctic Circle along the Yukon River, thousands of dinosaur tracks have been found – one of several surprising discoveries about dinosaurs.
Sherpa Fitness Is Not Evolution
September 22, 2013
A study about mutations that might confer benefit to high-altitude Sherpas is being announced as an example of evolution, but variation within species is not Darwinian evolution.
Reverse Engineer Living Solutions
September 20, 2013
Need solutions to practical engineering problems? Save time and effort; see how animals and plants do it.
DNA in Amber Doesn't Last Long
September 17, 2013
Claims of ancient DNA hundreds of thousands of years old may be false. No DNA was found in an insect encased in amber said to be 10,600 years old.
Understanding Jumping by Leaps and Bounds: Geared Insect and Leaping Plant
September 16, 2013
Two clever examples of leaping have been found in the living world, adding to the catalog of clever ways life gets around.
Junk Science Gets Good Press if It Supports Darwinism
September 13, 2013
The headlines for some scientific news stories might leave philosophers of science wagging their heads. Few, though, are the reporters willing to call something really dumb, or at least questionable—especially if it appears to support evolution.
