Archer Fish Amplifies Muscle with Physics

The secret of the archer fish’s powerful spits has been discovered, and it isn’t powerful muscles. The fish that shoots bugs out of the air uses physics, a paper in PLoS ONE declared.  By letting physics amplify the momentum in the drop shot out of the water, the fish achieves six times the wallop its […]

Darwin Tree Visualization Tool Obscures More Than It Educates

A new website helps visualize evolution. But does it confirm or obfuscate the real world?

Butterfly Cities and Spider Optics

Skycrapers of the future may shine in brilliant butterfly colors. Optical biosensors may be made from spider webs. These are just a few of the engineering marvels coming from biomimetics—the imitation of nature.

Monarch Deposed by Painted Lady

Painted lady butterflies make an even more spectacular migration than the famous Monarchs, observers just found.

More Fossils Appear Abruptly

Two more finds show spectacular stasis – the lack of evolution.

Weekend Grab Bag

Here are links to recent science findings and claims sure to stimulate thinking and further research.

Upper Limit Set on DNA Age

Forget Jurassic Park; DNA cannot last anywhere near 65 million years, researchers say.

Cambrian Explosion Began with Big Brains

A fossil Cambrian arthropod shows a large complex brain, prompting evolutionists to propose that evolution ran backwards from there.

Eating Meat Made Us Human

Sorry, vegans; evolutionists tell us that eating meat 1.5 million years ago made us what we are today.

Convergence Convenience

Is "convergent evolution" a convenient escape clause for evidence that contradicts evolution?

Survival of the Nicest

Baboons monitored for personality did best if they fell in the "Nice" category.

Lemur-fish, Vege-fang and other Fossil Follies

Fossils are doing just fine, but the scientists who interpret them are having a rough week (or century).

Animal Models for Technology

Animals and microbes continue to inspire technologies that could provide better health and security.

Nature: 3.8 Billion Years of R&D

Scientists continue mining the biomimicry bonanza, but some still give all the credit to time and evolution.
