Scientists' Letter Challenges PZ Myers' Revisionism

In a letter to Nature, three scientists set the record straight about theology and science, after atheist P.Z. Myers got off with only a mild rebuke in a previous book review.

Darwin Fumbles

154 years after Darwin’s Origin of Species, evolutionists say they still do not understand the origin of species. In addition, they've lost most of whatever data they had.

Snowball Earth: Manufacturing a Narrative

The press and TV treat presumed scenarios like a "snowball Earth" as historic facts. A look at how the sausage is made, however, shows little empirical meat and mostly filler in a process characterized by tweaking, picking, and constant debate.

Ethical Stem Cells Can Be Used Unethically

Induced pluripotent stem cells allow researchers to ethically create any cell type from an adult cell, raising hopes for regenerative medicine. Eyebrows started to raise recently, though, when labs grew brains with them and turned others into sperm and egg cells.

Psychotherapy Has a Shrink

For better or worse, the practice of psychotherapy is shrinking, reports say.

Observable Chemistry Does Not Logically Apply to the Origin of Life

Origin-of-life researchers assume that intelligently-designed experiments in the lab can inform them about the emergence of life without design – in short, that design proves non-design.

Scientists Are Not Experts on Values

The "fact-value split" is a dubious distinction, illustrated by several recent articles. Scientists cannot act as if their findings are values-free.

Scientists Dodge Youthfulness of Saturn Moon Enceladus

Planetary scientists have figured out that the geysers of Enceladus vary during its orbit, but seem oddly silent about the question of how long the little moon could remain so active.

Thank Evolution that Nothing Is Evil (or Good)

When evolutionists discuss the evolution of war, or of monogamy, or of religion, they rob mankind of any basis for judging good and evil.

Toddler Beats Artificial Intelligence Computers

Artificial intelligence, despite decades of work, still cannot match some of the mental capabilities of a 3-year-old. Computers have no common sense.

Cassini Shoots "Blue Dot" of Earth

Another epic photo of Earth from space was taken on July 19 of Earth from Saturn by Cassini, and released on July 22. From Mercury, the MESSENGER spacecraft also portrayed Earth as a small dot.

"Extreme Convergence" Strains Credibility of Darwinism

When completely unrelated animals or plants display the same engineering solution, is it reasonable to assume a blind, unguided process of selection achieved improbable outcomes multiple times? Is calling it "convergent evolution" meaningful? Here are three examples.

Does the Mind Create Reality or Discover It?

Philosophical questions about "reality" are fun if not practical. But we need a concept of reality in order to function practically.

Batty Illogic Published in Evolutionary Paper

Scientific papers do not emerge from pure realms of wisdom and knowledge. They are written by people, who can be illogical sometimes.

Mystery Moon (and Meteorites, and Stars)

One would think astronomers would not be stumped in 2013 by common objects like the moon, meteors and stars. But they are. It's driving them mad.
