Science Will Never Know Some Things

Working against scientists' ambitions are hurdles of reality.

Major Scientific Revolutions Are Still Possible

Beware the myth of progress. There's more scientists don't know than what they know.

Inventing Stars, Solar Systems and Universes

Always look into the methods used when scientists speak confidently about models for making things appear out of nowhere.

Cosmic Conundrums

Modern cosmology is in a battle against the observations, and the observations might just win.

Astronomers Lie about Star Formation

A look at the evidence behind the latest claim of the universe's earliest stars shows nothing of the sort. And that's not the biggest whopper.

Plentiful Water in the Early Universe, and Other Surprises

Based on the following unexpected findings, secular astronomers' ignorance of reality has reached cosmic proportions.

Evidence-Based Cosmology

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

Double Trouble for Cosmology

Two developments are converging to threaten the standard big bang model of the universe's origin.

Of Stars and Significance

The farther out we look, the more questions we have. But does secular astronomy ask the right questions?

Cosmology Goes Off the Reservation

If science were ever restricted to observation, experimental demonstration, and evidence, some cosmologists left that reservation far behind long ago. Being smart does not preclude going nutty.

Cosmologists Were Wrong About Galaxy Evolution

Fifteen years ago, no cosmologist would have predicted mature galaxies early on, but they keep getting found – earlier and earlier.

If the Big Bang Is the Answer, Why Are There So Many Questions?

Any scientific explanation that leads to more questions than answers should be considered suspect.

Dark Matter Search Tinkers with Mythology

They can't find it, but it must be there. How long can that approach be sustained?
