AAAS Tries to Downplay Dinosaur Soft Tissue

The biggest bombshell of the century in paleontology threatens evolutionary time. It's not surprising that the AAAS would want to put out the fire.

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets, 6: Chemistry and Probability

In this final segment about habitability of exoplanets, Dr Henry Richter looks at chemistry and probability.

Miracles in Solar System Origin Theories

Skipping over a difficulty because it can't be solved scientifically: that's one giant backward leap for theory kind.

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets, 5: Water and Rock

by Dr Henry Richter There is much interest in searching for life elsewhere in the Universe. In previous articles I talked about the many criteria describing conditions and circumstances required to establish and maintain life on a planet. I talked about the importance of the location of the planet in its solar system. The location […]

Hurricanes Are Not Increasing from Global Warming

Scientists explain that this hurricane season is not exceptional in the long term view, despite four devastating storms in just a week.

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Geophysics

by Dr Henry Richter This is a continuation of my discussion on the requirements to allow life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe. My discussion moved from our position in the galaxy, our position in the solar system, and then focused on the earth, looking at the influence of our moon, our […]

Cassini Grand Verdict: Saturn Rings Younger Than Expected

With the orbiter's best-yet images and data now coming down, a long-running debate about the age of Saturn's rings is concluding in favor of youth.

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Moon, Atmosphere, and Mass

This is part 3 of Dr Henry Richter's discussion on the requirements for life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe.

Multiple Independent Animal Types Use Structural Color

The phenomenon is found in butterflies, fish, birds, and snakes, and scientists are rushing to imitate their secrets.

Habitability Requires the Right Kind of Star

This is a continuation of my discussion on the requirements to allow life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe.

More Sources of Error in Climate Models

We continue examiningfindings that call into question the certainty of scientific consensus about global warming. Here are interesting papers from leading peer-reviewed science journals.

Chinks in the Climate Science Data

Consensus can be more robust than the data it rests on. That's true in Darwinism, and appears to be true in climate science, according to some published doubts.

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets

by Dr Henry Richter For a number of years I have been amused to watch many in the scientific community conduct a frantic campaign to identify life elsewhere in the universe. There has been a plethora of articles and significant dollars dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial life, particularly intelligent life. In recent times several […]
Cassini at Saturn

Cassini Has Not Made Saturn’s Rings Old

After 13 years in orbit, Cassini data still show conflicting interpretations for the age of Saturn's rings.

Evolutionary Storytelling Evolves: the Case of Origin of Life

 The Latest Episode in Evolving Origin-of-Life Stories by Dr Jerry Bergman The origin-of-life story is evolving. Before the middle 1600s most people believed that many forms of life originated by spontaneous generation from either inanimate matter, or once-living but now dead matter. Aristotle even believed that animals he considered “simple”, such as worms, fleas, bees, […]
