Stop the Presses! Human Evolution Falsified!

Human bones found in Morocco undermine almost everything that has been taught about human evolution since Darwin. But is that news? Happens every year, doesn't it?

Yet Another Revolution in Human Evolution

A new paper claims the split between chimps and humans occurred in eastern Europe, not Africa as widely accepted for decades by scientists.

Homo naledi Is Young

The media are abuzz with disappointment that this cache of bones in South Africa is too young to be a missing link. Homo naledi is one of the most astonishing “hominin” fossil finds in recent years, on par with the “hobbits” (Homo floresiensis) of Indonesia. Debates have gone wild since Lee Berger announced hundreds of […]

Weekend Digest, May 6, 2017

Here's a collection of quick takes on interesting developments in the science news, from Saturn to a possible cure for malaria; from your liver to Sunday funnies.

The Human Evolution Textbook Has to be Rewritten Yet Again!

This post by Dr. Jerry Bergman exposes the shoddy interpretations drawn from controversial flakes of rock that are turned by reporters into world-shattering news.

Ancient DNA Recovered from Caves

New techniques are allowing scientists to extract ancient DNA from cave soil. But is it really as old as claimed?

Are Hobbits Human?

Are the little people of Indonesia and South Africa just small versions of us? Wherever they came from, and whatever they were doing in the caves in which they were found, they don't fit evolutionary expectations.

Illogic Is Rife in Science Media

A simple exercise shows that what materialists are telling us cannot possibly be true. So why do reporters give them any mind?

Secular Scientists Prefer Humans Extinct

At a recent panel, scientists doubted whether it would be a good idea to revive the human species if it went extinct.

Time to Re-Mind the Brain

A radical rethink is needed to understand the brain, a neuroscientist complains. A radical rethink is needed to understand human exceptionalism, too.

Amazonia Not Pristine

The tropical rainforests of Brazil, once thought to be pristine habitats of noble savages, show evidence of mass reworking by humans for millennia.

Why Was Civilization So Late in Coming?

According to evolutionists, modern man appeared 200,000 years ago, but civilization appeared only 8,000 years ago. We examine their explanations.

Fossils Destroy Human Evolution Story Again

The old picture of human evolution is in tatters again.

Evolutionary Materialism Promotes Deadly Sins

Name a vice, and Darwinians will be there to rationalize it on evolutionary grounds. They claim proud ownership of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Darwinism Still Corrupts Culture

The bad fruits of Social Darwinism are well known. Less well known are ongoing negative influences of modern Darwinian ideas on human behavior.

People Have an Innate Preference for Logical Truth

Experiments show that logical conclusions reached by abstract reasoning make people feel better than illogical conclusions do.

More Body Wonders

Things you probably didn't learn about in anatomy or physiology.

Empty Promises from Darwin Storytellers

Mainstream science media cast a false illusion of Darwinism's success by making promises in the headlines that the articles don't deliver.

Mormons and Psychologists Burn Their Brains

Can an MRI scan tell anything about spiritual experience?

Lucy Lived in the Trees

A new CT scan of Lucy's bones show adaptations for living in the trees.

Big Science Has Corrupted Its Mission

If the leading journal Nature is any example, Big Science has unmasked itself as a left-leaning, political, ideological movement.

Violence Is Natural, Darwinians Say

The implications of saying violence is a product of natural selection are disturbing.

So Much for Stone Tools

There goes the flaked stone tool as a measure of hominin intelligence, now that monkeys can unintentionally make them, too.

Human Evolution Surprises Continue

The observational environment causes evolutionary theory to adapt.

Distorted Scopes Narrative Perpetuated

The media continues to inherit the spin.

Stumped: Evolutionist Confesses No Answer for Human Uniqueness

The only other sentient upright-walking humanoid species are characters from science fiction. Why?

Human Evolutionists Fall Out of Their Science Tree

Tell a tale, get media attention: did Lucy fall out of a tree, or did paleoanthropologists fall off an empirical limb?

Scientific Materialists Crave Morality But Can't Evolve It

If Darwin's theory of origins is true, evil doesn't exist, and notions of morality are up for grabs. That would be a reality too horrible to endure.

Protein Residue Found on Hominin Stone Tools

Would you expect pieces of meat to survive on flakes of rock in the desert for 250,000 years?
