Sunday Inspiration

Need inspiration? Look at designs in nature. Even secular scientists are getting inspired.

Animal PhDs in Physics

Many animals and plants have mastered physics and chemistry. Engineers would do well to learn from them.

Fun With Biomimetics

Here are new things we're learning from plants and animals, where nature is the engineering professor.

Fish Ancestry Turned On Its Head

A so-called "primitive" bony fish with traits of sharks confuses the usual story of fish ancestry.

Is Animal Play Just an Evolutionary Survival Mechanism?

Yes, your dog enjoys play, say biologists, and so do birds, dolphins and many other kinds of animals. How did "having fun" evolve?

Biological Systems Provide Infinite Design Inspiration

It's not likely engineers and biologists will run out of inspiration from biology anytime soon. The source is infinite.

Animals Overcome Limitations of Physics

The limits of human engineering have been overcome by animals in surprising ways worth imitating.

How Did the Archer Fish Learn Physics?

A little fish that shoots down bugs out of the air learned some tricks of optics and propulsion that impress scientists.

Is This Fish Evolving into a Land Animal in the Lab?

Evolutionists are reading a grand story into observations of flopping fish in a lab tank.

Cambrian Explosion Included Vertebrate Fish

At the first appearance of complex animals, vertebrate fish were already there, a new analysis confirms.

An Animal Cannot Be On the Way to Evolving Something

No animal can plan ahead how it will evolve, so why do some evolutionists talk like they do?

Life Shows Exquisite Engineering and Optimization

Engineers drool over animal capabilities. How would mutation and natural selection deal with these examples of design perfection?

How Useful Is Evolutionary Theory?

In science, it's not enough to have a paradigm that merely keeps scientists busy, if they are rarely right.

Fishy Tales About Tetrapod Origins

It's a stretch for mutation and selection to make a fish crawl out onto land with four digitized limbs, to say nothing of lungs and a new body plan.

Strange Animals and Stranger Facts About Them

The world is decorated with an astonishing diversity of animals. Here are some new discoveries about a few of them.
