Diatoms: A Case Study in Darwinian Explanation

Some of the most beautiful, elegant, and vital organisms on earth demand a better explanation than 'stuff happens over and over.'

Neutron Imaging Solves Mystery of Leeuwenhoek’s Microscopes

It's been 300 years, and scientists are just now figuring out how Antony van Leeuwenhoek was able to grind microscope lenses of superior quality.

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.

Oldest Language in India Only 4,500 Years Old

If modern humans left Africa 185,000 years ago or more, why does the oldest language in India date back less than 3% of that time?

End of the RNA World?

The popular RNA World hypothesis is so improbable that multiple universes would be needed to believe it, but some prefer that to the obvious implications.

Elephants and Mammoths Were All One Kind

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. […]

The Mind-Body Problem Has Not Been Solved by Naturalism

Several news stories bring back the issue of mind-body dualism with a vengeance.

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.

Pterosaurs and Birds Flew Together

Archaeopteryx flew as well as a pheasant, say paleontologists, and pterosaurs prospered right up to the moment of extinction.

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.

Most Common Phrase in Evolution Media: “Earlier Than Thought”

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

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?
