Surprises in the Chicxulub Tale of Dino Extinction

Did an asteroid hit in the Yucatan explain the demise of the dinosaurs? New drilling in the crater has brought some surprises.

Pterosaurs and Birds Flew Together

Archaeopteryx flew as well as a pheasant, say paleontologists, and pterosaurs prospered right up to the moment of extinction.

Habitable Planets Just Got Much More Rare

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 […]

The Flying Giraffe and Other Fossil Stories of Extinct Reptiles

Imagine a giraffe leaping into the air and flying off. That's what this giant pterosaur was like. Other interpretations about extinct reptiles are not so certain.

Moon Origin Story Collapses

In a one-two punch, discoveries undermine the accepted story of the moon's origin and its subsequent history.

Why Astronomers Hammer Planets

Secular planetary scientists have a skeleton key that unlocks any planetary mystery: the BFH.

Saturn Surprises

Cassini keeps revealing puzzling phenomena in the Saturn system that challenge traditional theories and date estimates.

Solving Moon Origin Unsolves the Last Solution

The moon's origin has been "demystified," scientists are claiming. That's what they said last time.

The Missing Zinc: Moon Rocks Still Tell Tales

Apollo ended 50 years ago, Neil Armstrong is dead, but lunar geologists are still using the moon rocks they brought home to construct a story of the moon's "evolution".

Paradigm Shift: Impact Didn't Kill Dinosaurs

A new study casts doubt on whether asteroid impacts led to extinctions. It's based on re-interpreting geological evidence used to identify impacts. This finding, if sustained, would undermine the theory that an impact killed off the dinosaurs and a later impact led to the extinction of many large mammals. Even more significant, an overturn of the impact hypothesis would illustrate that scientists are capable of going off on wrong tangents for decades.
