Shoving Fossils Onto Darwin’s Timeline
November 9, 2019
Fossils do not tell a Darwinian story unless they are forced into his narrative. Dinosaurs Jurassic dinosaurs trotted between Africa and Europe (Phys.org). People probably hadn’t thought that T. rex had to be a long-distance swimmer. How, then, did tracks of tyrannosaur-like dinosaurs get across oceans? Darwin, we have a problem! Similar dinosaur tracks have […]

A Tale of Two Pollens
June 29, 2011
Ambiguity is a bad word in science. Scientists want to be objective. To scientific realists, scientific truth is “out there” in the world, waiting to be discovered. The 20th century tempered scientific realism somewhat from its extreme form (scientism, the belief that science is the only reliable guide to truth). Knowledgeable scientists are more or less aware of the role of paradigms, social pressure and webs of belief that can affect interpretations of scientific data. But there is still a widespread perception that science “finds” truth in the world. Whether that happens can be pondered while exploring two recent stories about fossil pollen that arrived at opposite conclusions: one (by evolutionists) that supports old-earth geology (and “climate change” politics), and one (by creationists) that undermines it, finding fundamental biases among evolutionists who refuse to accept the implications of the data.
