New Waterfall Theory Affects Interpretations of Climate, Tectonics

How do waterfalls form? Geologists tested them in the lab, and found that some of them can make themselves. It has been long assumed that you need some external event to form a waterfall: a change in rock, a change in flow, a landslide, or some other “allogenic” source. Three scientists, publishing in Nature this […]

Detrital Zircons Can Give False Geological Ages

Zircons are a gold standard for dating. They can yield ages that are statistically significant, but geologically meaningless.

Darwinists Use Fossils as Props for Propaganda

With one-party rule in any institution, everything supports the party line. Open debate would be healthy for paleontology.

Hard Science Has a Firm Grip on Unreality

Anybody who thinks the hard sciences give us confidence in the real world should read this.

Fossils Can Mislead Big Time

Claims about fossil patterns rely on methods and assumptions that have been proven wrong.

More Reasons to Doubt Consensus

Recent scientific papers cast doubt on the ability of researchers to understand systems as complex as climate.

Cosmologists Are Blind in the Dark

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

Medieval Dinosaurs Too Incredible for Materialists

Window dressing on the rock wall of a medieval church stirs unbelief, anger among anti-creationists.

These "Evolutionary" Fossils Don't Help Evolutionary Theory

Anti-evolutionary implications can stare paleontologists in the face, yet they still invoke evolutionary theory.

More Human-Evolution Contortions

Contrary data can be made to fit a theory if you know some good wrestling moves.

Geology Fails Oxygen Test

A rock used as a signature for the rise of oxygen in the early earth turns out to be misleading and useless for dating.

Snowball Earth: Manufacturing a Narrative

The press and TV treat presumed scenarios like a "snowball Earth" as historic facts. A look at how the sausage is made, however, shows little empirical meat and mostly filler in a process characterized by tweaking, picking, and constant debate.

Scientific Markers Can Mislead

In historical sciences, observable phenomena are often used as indicators of past phenomena. Some recent examples show how these can mislead researchers.
