Hopes for Wet Mars Diminished

The clays on Mars that were thought to be indicative of a wet past could, instead, be formed by volcanoes.

Star Chemistry Constrains Habitable Zone

The chemistry of a parent star can have drastic effects on the habitability of an earth-like planet.

Origin-of-Life Researchers Excited Over Nothing

The phrase "building blocks of life" is pregnant with misinformation.

"Easy Does It" Evolution Credited with Anything and Everything

Reporters show remarkably little discernment about the limitations of natural selection, but scientists don't rebuke them.

Curiosity Set to Explore Mars

Having survived its nail-biting entry, descent and landing, the Curiosity rover is ready to roll on Mars.

Left-Handed Amino Acid Puzzle Remains

A new suggestion of how life ended up with left-handed amino acids comes up short.

Venter: Life Is Robotic Software

What is life? It's software that runs biological robots, says a leading geneticist.

Arsenic Life Isn't

Remember the claim in 2010 that living organisms were discovered using arsenic instead of phosphate? Further tests show it was not the case.

Evolution as Lottery Manipulator

Lady Luck is often clearly the stated referee of evolutionary events, but the vast number of times evolution wins suggests design afoot.

Aliens: Evolutionists' Imaginary Friends

Some evolutionists have a lot to say about imaginary friends no one has ever seen.

How to Liven Up Dead Geology

A new study shows some carbon compounds from Mars formed, not by living organisms, but from geological and chemical processes. What does life have to do with it? Ask some science reporters.

New Chirality Solution Proposed

It's long been a mystery why cells use one hand of two-handed molecules, like left-handed amino acids and right-handed sugars. A new proposal solves the mystery, explaining how this phenomenon called homochirality arises naturally. Wait a minute...

OOL for Landlubbers

No part of the universal evolutionary scenario gets more overhauls than the origin of life. Some say it began in the sea, some on the land. Some say it began at the bottom of the sea; others say that is the worst place for life to get going. The latest idea favors freshwater hot springs on land.

Oozing Life Up Against All Odds

The origin of life clearly requires a major leap in complexity, but not just any complexity. A conglomerate rock is complex, but not alive. Life has functional complexity – the ability to selectively take in materials to grow, move and reproduce. Life also requires growth, but not just any growth. Fire grows and reproduces, but is not alive, whereas a living cell grows and reproduces according to internal programmed instructions. Evolutionists think the origin of life by natural causes is a tractable problem that will eventually be solved. Let’s see a couple of examples of how their work is coming along.

Selling Darwinism as a Cinch

The origin of biological complexity is a major concern for believers in unguided, random processes of nature. Some recent news articles, though, make it sound easy – no problem at all. But do their theories and experiments reflect the real world?
