The Frantic Determination of Some Scientists to Discover Life Elsewhere
July 6, 2018
We often hear exciting news about 'habitable planets' that might have life, or at least the 'building blocks of life.' Are these reports based on sound thinking about the requirements?
Most Exoplanets Are Probably Not Habitable

More astrobiologists are coming to the "depressing" conclusion that we are alone in the universe, but it's only depressing if you're an evolutionist.
Van Allen Belts Protect Earth from Solar Wind

Habitable Planets Just Got Much More Rare
December 13, 2017
If this scientist’s theory about the origin of magnetic fields is correct, habitable planets will be few and far between. Earth has a magnetic field sufficient to support life. Venus does not. Why does “Earth’s twin” lack this protective shield? According to secular geophysicists, a magnetic field is generated by a dynamo in a planet’s […]
Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Geophysics

by Dr Henry Richter This is a continuation of my discussion on the requirements to allow life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe. My discussion moved from our position in the galaxy, our position in the solar system, and then focused on the earth, looking at the influence of our moon, our […]

Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets
August 11, 2017
by Dr Henry Richter For a number of years I have been amused to watch many in the scientific community conduct a frantic campaign to identify life elsewhere in the universe. There has been a plethora of articles and significant dollars dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial life, particularly intelligent life. In recent times several […]
The Habitability Habit: Exaggerating Earth-Likeness
July 26, 2017
Secularists put too much hope on some aspects of Earth-like exoplanets, but sometimes reality keeps their imaginations in check.
Natural Selection Favors Illogic
