Galaxy Evolution Crisis: Start Over

When you see the words "challenging" and "requires substantial revision" in the abstract, you know trouble is coming.

Dark Matter is Still Very Dark and Very Mysterious

by Dr Jerry Bergman A research report in Nature announced the results of the latest experiment designed to prove the existence of Dark matter. In short: “Dark Matter Remains Elusive” (Xiangdong, 542:172. February 9, 2017). Dark matter is a hypothetical matter type that cannot be observed with any existing telescope system but, it is claimed, […]

Dark Matter Remains Missing

How long do astronomers get to search for something that has no direct evidence?

Bizarre Bursts in Space

Astronomers don't know what they are, or where they come from, but big blasts from space have opened up a new field of research.

Wishing Upon Star Formation

Many astronomy articles have a bad habit of assuming star formation without demonstrating or explaining it.

Cosmologists Are Blind in the Dark

A rash of recent science articles shows that secular cosmologists have no idea where they are, or why.

SETI Communication Only Outward So Far

While we wait for responses, all we hear are echoes of our own intelligent signals into space.

Astronomers Deal With Outrageous Phenomena

Even for scientists accustomed to big things, some observations seem too outrageous to explain.

Record-Setting Cosmic Structures Challenge Big Bang

How will big bang theorists deal with the latest news?

Globular Clusters Give Astronomers Cluster Headaches

The old story is out, and nobody knows what the new story should be.

Early Massive Galaxies Will Require Theory Overhaul (Again)

Big bang theory didn't expect massive galaxies so early, but they've known about this problem for over a decade.

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.

Plentiful Water in the Early Universe, and Other Surprises

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

100,000 Galaxies Without a Sign of Life

An orbiting infrared telescope found no clear signs of life in 100,000 galaxies.

Cosmic Theater

Cosmologists act less like scientists and more like actors, the more that anomalies threaten their paradigm.

Double Trouble for Cosmology

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

Quasar Alignment Is "Spooky"

Quasar rotation axes show a peculiar alignment over billions of light-years.

Astronomers Missed Half the Visible Universe

Dark matter is still a mystery, but meanwhile, half of the real stars in the universe have been hiding in plain sight.

Galaxy Evolution Problem: A Case Study in Criticizing Paradigms

"When you have a clear contradiction like this, you ought to focus on it," say scientists who found problems with the leading theory of galaxy evolution.

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.

Trouble in Cosmologyland

Underneath the veneer of certainty portrayed by TV documentaries about the universe are deep questions and controversies. Some of these briefly appear on publicly-available news stories, only to be covered by new coats of certainty. Are the new veneers fixing the problems or, instead, whitewashing serious weaknesses in current cosmological understanding? Here are some quick looks under the veneer.
