Secular Astronomy Fails, I: Solar System

From planets to stars to galaxies, objects don’t fit the expectations of materialists who work as astronomers. Here are cases where secular astronomers have to rewrite textbooks again, because what they’ve been teaching is wrong. This entry looks at solar system fails. A follow-up entry will deal with stars, galaxies and cosmology. Impact bombardment chronology […]

Young Solar System Evidence Pops Up Everywhere

If the solar system formed more recently than believed, Darwinism is dead. Look how widely scattered the evidence is.

Moon Losing Its Water

The moon loses more water than it receives from the solar wind or meteorites. How long has that been going on?

Misinterpreting Fossil Graveyards

Fossils are real, but the stories concocted to explain how mixed-up animals became buried together involve assumptions.

Counting Craters: Bad Assumptions Undermine Reliability

A new chronology of Earth/moon history reaches conclusions that are so assumption-ridden as to be worthless.

Saturn’s Rings Not Just Young, but “Very Young”

Cassini scientists now have reduced the rings' age by an order of magnitude, as if they formed practically "yesterday."

Time to Revisit the Lunar Dust Problem?

How deep should lunar dust get over billions of years? Opinions have vacillated between extremes, but a new study might open up the debate again.

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.

Tangled Branches Confound Darwinian Trees

Darwin's branching "tree of life" diagram made for a nice, simple, easy-to-understand, convenient myth. It has sent scientists on a wild tree chase ever since.

Did Earth Get Its Water from Meteor Squirt Guns?

You can't just fire bullets at pumice and claim that Earth got its oceans that way.

Pterosaurs and Birds Flew Together

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

Latest Moon Theory Needs an Invisible Goddess to Work

Now they say that the impactor didn't only spin off a cloud that formed the moon; it made a donut cooked up by a goddess.
Cassini at Saturn

It’s Official: Saturn’s Rings Are Young

There's no stretching the truth any more. Cassini data have led all the ringmasters to the conclusion that the rings of Saturn are not billions of years old.

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 […]

Planet Party Busted by Triton

Theories can be like parties with tantalizing speculations until big, whopping anomalies spoil the fun.
