How Body Organs Evolved (Not)

From the first fossils of multicellular life to the end, Dr Jerry Bergman looks for evidence of the evolution of organs.

Evolutionists Have No Idea How Sex Evolved

Researchers in our day still admit they are baffled about the origin of sexual reproduction.

Cell's Molecular Machines Arouse Fascination

With increasing image quality at their disposal, biologists are finding amazing molecular machines at work in living cells.

Your Cells Work for You

At a cellular level, the human body has a dizzying array of workers. Here are a few recent examples discovered.

Marvelous Machines That Keep You Running

Here are just a few of the recent reports describing the intricate biological machines on which life depends.

Remarkable Cell Processes That Keep You Alive

Within the factories of molecular machines that run living cells, including those in the human body, processes occur non-stop that are designed to meet every contingency. Here are just a few examples.

Animalympics

As summer Olympics season approaches, we should remember that we humans are not the only ones with some amazing physical abilities.

OOL for Landlubbers

No part of the universal evolutionary scenario gets more overhauls than the origin of life. Some say it began in the sea, some on the land. Some say it began at the bottom of the sea; others say that is the worst place for life to get going. The latest idea favors freshwater hot springs on land.

Cells Optimize Their Tasks

The key to design in manufacturing is optimization – hitting the “sweet spot” between competing interests. It’s not always possible to have all the elements of a product be ideal. A laptop computer, for instance, can’t have an extra-large monitor and simultaneously have long battery life and compact design. A muscle car cannot be expected to have the best gas mileage. In the heyday of “faster, better, cheaper” spacecraft, engineers often joked, “pick any two.” In the same way, living cells have to optimize their operations. A couple of recent papers explore how they find that sweet spot.
