After Cassini, Titan Still a Problem for Long Ages

The scientist who predicted a global ocean on Titan 35 years ago is still baffled over why Cassini did not find it.

Did Earth Get Its Water from Meteor Squirt Guns?

You can't just fire bullets at pumice and claim that Earth got its oceans that way.

Misreading Evidence for Early Man

Paleoanthropology has a long history of misinterpreting evidence and committing spectacular blunders. Are we seeing more examples right now?

More Reasons to Doubt Scientific Omniscience

We hear it all the time; 99% of scientists agree. All it takes, though, is one overlooked fact to tumble a consensus.

Tiny Life Benefits the Whole World

Some very small organisms can produce global effects, such as the tiny crustaceans that stir the oceans every night. What would the oceans be like without life? If minerals, gases and nutrients had to mix by diffusion, the process would be very slow. Wind and currents could help somewhat. Now, Houghton et al., publishing in […]

Do These Fossils Show Evolution?

Before taking an evolutionist's word for it that a fossil organism evolved, we should look at the evidence.

How Long Does Geology Take?

Geological change can occur quickly, if conditions are right, affecting life and civilization.

Climate Science Has Huge Error Bars

If one of your major model inputs is off by up to 50%, what does that do to the precision of your predictions about degrees of temperature change a century from now?

Darwinism as an All-Purpose Story Plot

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

The extent of fossil forests buried in the coldest continent on earth continues to grow and astound explorers.

Ceres Is Young

Dawn Mission scientists were surprised to see this asteroid (dwarf planet Ceres) with a water cycle and evidence of rapid geological changes.

Latest Moon Theory Needs an Invisible Goddess to Work

Now they say that the impactor didn't only spin off a cloud that formed the moon; it made a donut cooked up by a goddess.

Geology: A Science Where Theories Undergo Subduction

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 […]

Earth Magnetic Field Still Decaying

Old-earth belief tries to paper over a disturbing fact with speculative models, but 160 years of measurements show the strength of our planet's magnetic field is dropping fast.

Misreading Soft Tissue

When organic remains are found in fossils said to be hundreds of millions of years old, what questions should be asked?
