Archive Classic: Fitness for Dummies

This explanation of Darwinian fitness from 10/29/2002 has been reformatted for the current website. It's still worth considering.

Every Planet Surprises Secular Astronomers, III: Formation Theories

"Surprise" or "puzzling" are the most common words in news reports about bodies in the solar system. Here are recent examples that discuss the origin of planets.

Secular Psychology as Abuse

At best, psychology doesn't know what it's doing. At worst, it harms people.

Origin of Life: From Soup to Nuts

Evolutionists have been stewing over primordial soup for over a century, but origin-of-life research is still in the kitchen with empty kettles. Some new recipes are downright nutty.

Terrible Mistake about Diamond Dates

Geologists fess up to wrong conclusion about the "world's oldest diamonds."

Findings That Comport With Genesis

The history of the world and its life could hardly be more different between the Bible's account and that of modern evolutionary naturalism. Some recent scientific reports fit with a designed, recent creation, and do not fit with evolution.

Scientists Can Agree on Things that Aren’t So

Whenever you hear "all scientists agree" or "we now know," it's no guarantee a finding won't be disputed years later. In the following examples, CEH focuses not so much on the content of the disputed subjects as the implications for philosophy of science.

OOL Follies: Evolutionists Ignore the Obvious Questions

In origin-of-life (OOL) research, any partial solution seems good enough, even if the big questions go unanswered.

Rare Anti-Leftist Editorial Posted on Science Site

Finding an article on a secular science site that criticizes the left and defends the right is so rare, it was news.

Parody: Darwin as a Drug

An article appearing on a science news site portrayed Christian megachurches as a drug. What if the tables were turned?

Shrink Validity Is Shrinking

Should you trust the diagnosis of a psychiatrist? If it helps, individuals are free to choose. Behind the scenes, however, there are severe, deep-seated debates about whether psychiatrists understand disorders, let alone diagnose them properly.

Cells Optimize Their Tasks

The key to design in manufacturing is optimization – hitting the “sweet spot” between competing interests. It’s not always possible to have all the elements of a product be ideal. A laptop computer, for instance, can’t have an extra-large monitor and simultaneously have long battery life and compact design. A muscle car cannot be expected to have the best gas mileage. In the heyday of “faster, better, cheaper” spacecraft, engineers often joked, “pick any two.” In the same way, living cells have to optimize their operations. A couple of recent papers explore how they find that sweet spot.

A Tale of Two Mavericks

Two men who recently died are now being honored for their willingness to have stood up to the majority and advanced views that were unpopular at the time.

Can Darwin Be Rescued from a New Eye Discovery?

Darwinists have claimed for years that the human eye is an example of bad design, because it is wired backwards – the photoreceptors are located behind a tangle of blood vessels and other material.  But then in 2007, German scientists found that cone-shaped cells called Müller cells act like waveguides that transmit the light through […]

Paper View:  A Geology Paradigm Suffers a Paradox

A pair of geologists found a paradox in a paradigm.  That paradigm is the belief that ancient ocean levels rose and fell in cycles as ice sheets retreated and advanced, and the cause of the cycles was periodic changes in earth’s orbit.  They modeled this process and couldn’t get it to work.  They couldn’t get […]
