Titan Lake News: Throwing Caution to the Wind

Planetary scientists cautiously suggested the possible presence of an equatorial lake on Saturn's moon Titan. You wouldn't know that from the headlines.

Neanderthal-Heidelberg Distinction Blurs

"Heidelberg Man" has been a modern name imposed on certain fossil humans that have been unable to speak for themselves. Now, their bones appear to overlap with Neanderthals. But don't modern humans have Neanderthal DNA? Do the distinctions make any sense?

Too Hot to Handle: Io and Enceladus

Two moons in the solar system are turning up the heat on beliefs that they could be billions of years old.

Geology of the Gaps: Dolomite

Dolomite, a common rock minerals of the world, suffers from an "explanation gap."

"Darwin Fail" Entries Add Up

If nothing makes sense except in the light of evolution, the light sometimes is shining away from Darwin.

Geology Can Be Explosively Rapid

When people hear of "geologic time," they are trained to think of millions of years. Big things can happen in far less time.

Spiders Can Cross Oceans

Why did the spider cross the ocean? To colonize the Old World after it "originated" in the New World.

Fine Art and Music Emerges Earlier Still

With the "best came first" art of Chauvet cave fresh on our minds, another discovery shows exquisite art and music existed even further back than evolutionists expected.

Crater Count Dating Still Unreliable

Worries about the crater count dating method, widely relied upon to infer ages of planetary surfaces, began emerging in 2005. Those worries have not subsided; they have only grown worse. Crater numbers may have nothing to do with age.

Written in Ink: No Evolution

An ink sac from a fossilized Jurassic cephalopod said to be 160 million years old looks identical to those from living cuttlefish.

Earth's Magnetic Field Less Sustainable than Thought

Geophysicists have found that their favored dynamo theory for Earth's magnetic field is less stable than thought, leaving them wondering how our planet sustained its magnetic field for "geologic time."

Rapid Undersea Geology Observed

An undersea volcano near the Cook Islands was observed to grow and shrink rapidly in a fortnight, rivaling the rapid changes in Vesuvius and Mt. St. Helens.

Noah's Ark Claim Not Trustworthy

A creationist group in Hong Kong is releasing a dramatic documentary filled with fantastic claims about the discovery of Noah's Ark on Mt. Ararat. Other prominent creationists are warning of fraud and scientific malpractice.

Best Cave Art Is Still the Oldest

A new research study confirms that the exquisite cave art at Chauvet Cave is the oldest.

Coelacanth: Survival of the Dullest

A new fossil species of coelacanth was discovered in Canada. Scientists think from its tail fin shape that it was a fast swimmer–perhaps a hunter. Sadly, it was a "spectacular failure" in evolution. The luck of the evolutionary draw went to today's slow-moving, docile species.
