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?

Most Armored Dinosaurs Found Upside Down

Why are 81% of ankylosaur fossils found belly up? With clever storytelling, you can accommodate this to evolution's long ages.

Dust a Major Problem on Non-Earth Worlds

You can't just beam down to a planet and start walking around. That dust under your feet can cause major problems.

Astronomalies

One can't fault astronomers for not knowing everything – only for pretending to. Here are some reports indicating they have a long way to go.

Dinosaur and Mammal Tracks Found Together

In what is being called the mother lode of Cretaceous tracks, mammals, dinosaurs and pterosaurs left their prints in a table-sized rock.

Late Heavy Bombardment Myth Is Dying

A favorite tale from the Apollo era, the so-called Late Heavy Bombardment, is being bombarded itself.

Hidden Volcano Comes to Light

It was the largest volcanic eruption in history. It happened five years ago. Did you hear about it? Probably not. Here's why.

Evaluating Claims of Oldest Fossil Microbes

Are these fossils 3.45 billion years old? Are they even fossils? Serious questions need to be asked when the news gets excited about world records for oldest life on Earth.

Planetary Youth Continues After Cassini

The data gathering phase is over, but the data mining phase will continue for years. This entry also shares some news about other solar system objects showing youthfulness.

Habitable Planets Just Got Much More Rare

If this scientist’s theory about the origin of magnetic fields is correct, habitable planets will be few and far between. Earth has a magnetic field sufficient to support life. Venus does not. Why does “Earth’s twin” lack this protective shield? According to secular geophysicists, a magnetic field is generated by a dynamo in a planet’s […]

Amazing Fossils Found in Flood Deposits

Flood geology explains these unique fossils like slow-and-gradual geology cannot.
