100,000 Galaxies Without a Sign of Life

An orbiting infrared telescope found no clear signs of life in 100,000 galaxies.

What You're Not Being Told About Earth's Magnetic Field

The simple story for the public: a dynamo creates the earth's magnetic field. The real story: complex scenario needed to start it and keep it running.

Cosmic Ruler Flawed

Type 1a supernovae, vital to estimates of the size and expansion of the universe, are not uniform. This has cosmic implications.

Solving Moon Origin Unsolves the Last Solution

The moon's origin has been "demystified," scientists are claiming. That's what they said last time.

Messages from Mercury

With MESSENGER in its final days before impact, the innermost planet has become a familiar place.

Evidence-Based Cosmology

From what we observe, we can draw inferences without the need to posit occult phenomena.

Orbital Ice Age Theory Melts

Orbital cycles do not cause ice ages, a new study suggests. Instead, the whole world experienced an ice age at the same time.

Geology Upset: Wind Carves Canyons Fast

According to a new study, wind carves canyons ten times faster than water. This has implications for theories on Mars and Earth.

Water Worlds Tempt with Life, Not Youth

More and more planets and moons are suspected of having liquid water, but what should be the logical implications?

Scientific Method Evolves

There is no scientific method. There are customary procedures that depend on the field; these are subject to mutation and artificial selection.

Physical and Geological Hurdles on the Darwinian Race

Can the smooth big-bang-to-brain story of evolution jump the physical and geological hurdles along the way?

Cosmic Theater

Cosmologists act less like scientists and more like actors, the more that anomalies threaten their paradigm.

Darwin's Land of Make-Believe

Darwin supporters use cartoons and rap music to push their message to humans—and aliens.

Solar System Reversals

The planets keep going around, but theories about them often stop and go backward or sideways. When nothing else works, send in the impactors!

Evolutionary Anthropology as Religion

There's something magical about believing in evolutionary anthropology: a sense of numinous awe at how much they don't know but believe might be possible.
