Evolutionary Contradiction As Mental Illness
July 14, 2011
In their efforts to get their theory accepted, have some evolutionists crossed the line into irrationality? It is mentally sound to espouse well-argued points of view, even if controversial. What is marginal is arguing self-contradictory beliefs. Let the reader judge whether any of these ideas from evolutionists make sense.
The Evolution of… Come Again?
July 1, 2011
Science news articles speak freely of the evolution of this or that, but the fine print often shows a disconnect with the evolution explanation. Can one speak of the evolution of something that has not changed for millions or years? The details in the following stories raise questions whether anything significant has evolved in the […]
Avoid Confusion: Disbelieve Paleoanthropologists
June 28, 2011
If you care about the true history of the human race, don’t believe paleoanthropologists. They are clueless and confused. Every solution they come up with creates new problems, and their boastful announcements are likely to be overturned. That’s the gist of a commentary in PNAS by Bernard Wood, who wrote, “The origin of our own genus remains frustratingly unclear.” He ought to know; he’s an eminent paleoanthropologist himself.
If This Is Evolution, What Is Trivia?
June 24, 2011
Some science news articles appear confident about evolution, but offer little evidence except trivial change . Sometimes, they even offer evidence that contradicts their expectations. If this is evolution, what is trivia?
Evolution Against Intuition
June 7, 2011
As a general theory of life, evolution promises to explain everything. Not all observations fit neatly into that assumption. How do evolutionists respond when surprising or counter-intuitive observations require integration into the theory? Sometimes the only answer is that they evolved because they evolved. These 10 examples (with encore) can provide case studies for the discerning.
Fossils Support Evolution! (Because Evolution Is Assumed)
May 18, 2011
Fossils come in a variety of manifestations – not always bone. They could be leaf imprints, whole animals trapped in amber, footprints, or mineral traces made by once-living organisms. Some recent fossil finds are having trouble fitting into evolutionary theory. But one thing about those Darwinists: they always find a way. Graph fight: Evolutionists have […]
Evolutionary Language Lingo Contradictory
April 16, 2011
Human language is such a unique feature of our species, it would seem to defy evolutionary explanations. Can evolutionists take this living phenomenon and fit it into a historical narrative? A couple of papers in leading journals attempted to do so. Are their conclusions the only ones that can be drawn from the evidence? […]
Scientists: Who Can You Believe?
March 29, 2011
Scientists form a kind of knowledge priesthood in our modern world, but when long-taught principles get overturned, it raises questions on what scientists really know. Windy geology: Wind is a more powerful force for eroding mountains than previously thought. University of Arizona quoted Paul Kapp, an associate professor of geosciences at U of A saying, […]
Assessing Evolutionary Explanations
March 11, 2011
No matter the biological discovery, evolutionists are ready with their explanations. The explanations, however, are often riddled with puzzles, surprises, and seemingly arbitrary appeals to chance. Do such explanations really provide more understanding than those of creationists, who explain that living things were designed for a purpose? Shrimp deal: “Many deep-sea species have close relatives […]
Evolution by Loss
March 10, 2011
Evolutionists have added a counter-intuitive notion to their explanatory toolkit. It surfaced this week in Nature,1 then reverberated around the media: our ancestors became human when they lost genetic information from ape-like ancestors. New Scientist exemplified the new story line: “Key to humanity is in missing DNA.” Reporter Andy Coghlan explained the central […]
Evolutionists Turn Misses into Wins
February 25, 2011
Evolutionists have evolved a skill by design – the ability to turn falsification into confirmation. It’s a kind of philosophical judo, or parry, that can turn the energy of a criticism into a win for Darwin. Convergent turnarounds: A good example of an evolutionary parry can be seen in a post on Science Daily entitled, […]
Shrinking Brains Prove Human Evolution
February 6, 2011
Ever since Darwin, brain size has been the measure of human nature (e.g., 03/27/2007, 05/27/2009). Except for some anomalies with Neanderthal and Cro-magnon skull sizes, the iconic march of human evolution showed growing upright posture accompanied by increasing brain size (example on Daily Mail), and brain size was used to discriminate between races on the […]
Lice and Licentiousness in Paleoanthropology
January 8, 2011
A paleoanthropologist believes our ancestors ran nudist colonies for 830,000 years before inventing clothes, and can prove it from lice genes. The story is on Science Daily. By comparing head lice and clothes lice genomes, David Reed at the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida came up with a […]
Primitive Humans Were Sailors
January 6, 2011
Greek archaeologists have found stone tools on Crete thought to be between 130,000 and 700,000 years old, reported PhysOrg. If so, the makers had to sail to get there. “Crete has been separated from the mainland for about five million years, so whoever made the tools must have traveled there by sea (a distance of […]
December 29, 2010
Evidence of modern humans older than any ever discovered has been found in Israel – thus the teasing headline. The skeleton’s evolutionary discoverers would certainly discount any Biblical tie-in. Not that Adam was an Israelite, but like some later Biblical prophet, the find seems to be pronouncing doom on modern idolaters from the grave – […]
