Darwinism as an All-Purpose Story Plot
March 23, 2018
Observations are just props. The play is, “The Evolution of Whatever” or “How Whatever Evolved.” Now playing in science media near you. As a play, Darwinism has two subplots: natural selection and sexual selection. With a little creative screenwriting, any observation in nature can be fit into either or both subplots, provided the perhapsimaybecouldness index […]
More Fossil Forests Found in Antarctica
March 22, 2018
The extent of fossil forests buried in the coldest continent on earth continues to grow and astound explorers.
Elephants and Mammoths Were All One Kind
March 19, 2018
A new study of elephants, mammoths and mastodons show they were all interfertile or capable of hybridization. Our present world is impoverished of elephants, or “elephantids” as scientists dub the family. Mammoths and mastodons roamed throughout America and Asia, evidenced by the massive fossil beds, where millions of mammoth bones can be found in permafrost. […]
Pterosaurs and Birds Flew Together
March 14, 2018
Archaeopteryx flew as well as a pheasant, say paleontologists, and pterosaurs prospered right up to the moment of extinction.
Most Common Phrase in Evolution Media: “Earlier Than Thought”
March 9, 2018
Major innovations that should have required many millions of years of slow, gradual evolution keep turning up earlier than thought. But who thought? We coined a new word tontologism (look it up in the Darwin Dictionary) to account for a bad habit of Darwinians. They frequently say, when evidence goes against their previous beliefs, “we […]
Geology: A Science Where Theories Undergo Subduction
March 8, 2018
In plate tectonics, continental plates get subducted and melt under pressure. That’s like what happens to geological theories. Read enough geology papers, and you will find old theories constantly being replaced. Classic examples include plate tectonics becoming the new normal after Wegener’s theory had been viciously attacked, and megaflood theory for the Channeled Scablands becoming […]
Misreading Soft Tissue
March 5, 2018
When organic remains are found in fossils said to be hundreds of millions of years old, what questions should be asked?
Most Armored Dinosaurs Found Upside Down
March 2, 2018
Why are 81% of ankylosaur fossils found belly up? With clever storytelling, you can accommodate this to evolution's long ages.
Neanderthal Art Found: Last Barrier to Full Human Status Falls
February 23, 2018
They were strong, skilled hunters, with large brains. They interbred with 'modern humans.' But they have always been disparaged because they left no art. Till now.
Darwin Report Card: How Useful Is Evolutionary Theory?
February 6, 2018
We examine numerous articles and papers that talk about evolution to see if neo-Darwinism (or even old Darwinism) actually contributes to the understanding of nature.
Dinosaur and Mammal Tracks Found Together
February 1, 2018
In what is being called the mother lode of Cretaceous tracks, mammals, dinosaurs and pterosaurs left their prints in a table-sized rock.
Setback to Out-of-Africa Theory of Human Origins
January 27, 2018
A new modern human skeleton found in Israel is dated much earlier than a long-accepted theory can bear.
Butterfly Evolution Pushed 70 Million Years Before Flowers
January 13, 2018
New fossil evidence puts the squeeze on Darwinians, making butterflies appear suddenly, with complex mouth parts, before there were any flowers to pollinate. Time to rescue the theory again.
Animals Don’t Respect Darwin
January 8, 2018
Living things owe no obligation to Darwin. They will break his laws with reckless abandon.
Visualize Darwin Before Looking at Data
January 5, 2018
When the evidence doesn't fit evolutionary theory, guess what has to change?
