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.

Astrobiology: The Science of Could

Anything "could" happen. Shouldn't science deal with what does happen and what did happen? The "could" word is rampant in astrobiology literature and origin-of-life studies.

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.

Detecting Panic in Evolution Articles

Some claims by evolutionists sound cool, calm and collected until you see them in context.

What's New in the Primordial Soup?

The bubbling froth percolates with ideas about how life "emerged," each new notion trying to outdo the last in vacuity.

OOLishness: The Imaginary World of Origin-of-Life Studies

Why aren't philosophers of science shaming origin-of-life researchers out of the science department? OOL theories depend on imagination, not empirical evidence, for their broad-brush conclusions.

Planets and Moons Beneath the Surface

Can science peel back the surfaces of objects to see what's underneath? Can they go under the observations to find the explanations?

Star Chemistry Constrains Habitable Zone

The chemistry of a parent star can have drastic effects on the habitability of an earth-like planet.

Origin-of-Life Researchers Excited Over Nothing

The phrase "building blocks of life" is pregnant with misinformation.

Evolution as Lottery Manipulator

Lady Luck is often clearly the stated referee of evolutionary events, but the vast number of times evolution wins suggests design afoot.

Aliens: Evolutionists' Imaginary Friends

Some evolutionists have a lot to say about imaginary friends no one has ever seen.

How to Liven Up Dead Geology

A new study shows some carbon compounds from Mars formed, not by living organisms, but from geological and chemical processes. What does life have to do with it? Ask some science reporters.

OOL for Landlubbers

No part of the universal evolutionary scenario gets more overhauls than the origin of life. Some say it began in the sea, some on the land. Some say it began at the bottom of the sea; others say that is the worst place for life to get going. The latest idea favors freshwater hot springs on land.

Tilt-A-World: Another Constraint on Habitability

Did you ever ride a Tilt-A-Whirl, one of those cheap carnival rides that makes you dizzy and sick? Our planet would be like that if its inclination were out of control. Without tilt stability, a new study reveals, we wouldn't be sick, we'd be dead, or never alive in the first place. It's not enough to be in the Habitable Zone. Would-be inhabited planets need to avoid a new problem, called “tilt erosion.”
