Junk Science Gets Good Press if It Supports Darwinism

The headlines for some scientific news stories might leave philosophers of science wagging their heads. Few, though, are the reporters willing to call something really dumb, or at least questionable—especially if it appears to support evolution.

Mars Panspermia a Sign of Desperation

A second article proposes life began on Mars, prompting some observers to point out the failures of naturalistic origin-of-life theories.

Snowball Earth: Manufacturing a Narrative

The press and TV treat presumed scenarios like a "snowball Earth" as historic facts. A look at how the sausage is made, however, shows little empirical meat and mostly filler in a process characterized by tweaking, picking, and constant debate.

Scientists Dodge Youthfulness of Saturn Moon Titan

Like Enceladus, Saturn's moon Titan shows multiple signs of being far less than 4.5 billion years old – yet the press releases are strangely silent about the implications.

Origin of Life Theory Invokes Resurrection

Some scientists from Europe and America believe in the resurrection – of proteins.

Scientists Dodge Youthfulness of Saturn Moon Enceladus

Planetary scientists have figured out that the geysers of Enceladus vary during its orbit, but seem oddly silent about the question of how long the little moon could remain so active.

Cassini Shoots "Blue Dot" of Earth

Another epic photo of Earth from space was taken on July 19 of Earth from Saturn by Cassini, and released on July 22. From Mercury, the MESSENGER spacecraft also portrayed Earth as a small dot.

Mystery Moon (and Meteorites, and Stars)

One would think astronomers would not be stumped in 2013 by common objects like the moon, meteors and stars. But they are. It's driving them mad.

Extrasolar Planets: Bigger and More Mortal

Many of the stars and planets found by the Kepler spacecraft are not earthlike. Also, astronomers have seen planets destroyed by their stars.

Public Invited to Participate in Astrobiology's Future

NASA's Astrobiology Program is charting a new roadmap for future projects, and the public is allowed to voice its opinions.

Fresh Impacts Viewed on Mars, Moon

New impacts observed on the moon and Mars allow space scientists to learn about crater formation in near real time. What conclusions can be drawn?

Moon Water and Magnetism Mystifies Astronomers

Two mysteries from the moon are forcing revisions to textbooks. One concerns water in moon minerals. The other concerns the moon's magnetic field.

Trouble for Mars Lifers

Evidence disputes Mars water, let alone life. It's looking like a toxic place. Besides, where would the water come from?

Saturn's Rings Impacted by Meteoroids

Cassini has observed clouds of dust from meteoroids hitting the rings. The data will "impact" theories of the rings' origin and age.

SETI, Said He, Isn't Ready, Said She

The search for extra-terrestrial intelligence is like a detective story without a body. All those new planets, but no signal—at least not one that most scientists will accept.
