Science Confirms Biblical Human Nature

Science reveals that people are just like what the Bible says they are: image-bearers of their Creator, yet fallen into sin.

Darwinism as a Post-Observation What-If Game

The silly evolutionary spin put on observations of the natural world do not contribute to science; they cheapen it.

Man's Days Are Numbered

The heart beats earlier than expected, but seems to have a limit.

Humans May Have Lost Beneficial Traits

Imagine if you could regrow teeth all your life. Have we lost some capabilities during human history?

Real Men Take Nature Walks

When this man tells you to get out and take a walk in nature, you'd better do it.

Whale Secrets

Whales possess some remarkable traits that are the envy of engineers, and the dismay of evolutionists.

Let's Get [Thankful for the] Physical

Wonders of the human body continue to pour forth from scientific research, providing more reasons to give thanks.

Entrepreneurs Seek to Cure Ageing

Could scientists cure ageing, allowing humans to live Old Testament lifespans? A contest is on to fix the "chronic disease" of growing old.

Cell Chaperones Keep Proteins Properly Folded

Imagine linking together a chain of 300 plastic shapes, some with magnets at various places. Then let it go and see if you could get it to fold spontaneously into a teapot. This is the challenge that cells face every minute: folding long chains of amino acids (polypeptides) into molecular machines and structures for the cell’s numerous tasks required for life. DNA in the nucleus codes for these polypeptides. They are assembled in ribosomes in single-file order. How do they end up in complex folded shapes? Some polypeptides will spontaneously collapse into their native folds, like the magnetic chain in our analogy. Others, however, need help. Fortunately, the cell provides an army of assistants, called chaperones, to monitor, coax, and repair unfolded proteins, to achieve “proteostasis” – a stable, working set of proteins. That army is so well-organized and complex, scientists continue to try to figure out how it performs so well in the field.
