Natural Selection: The Ghost Idol of Biology
January 19, 2019
A spirit that works in mysterious ways. Biologists cannot nail it down, but insist it can turn bacteria into biologists.
Astronomers Lie About Dark Matter
January 17, 2019
It's as indefensible as believers in ghosts lying about observational evidence for them.
Fallacious Assumptions Corrupt Science
January 8, 2019
Scientists are not immune from the attraction of primrose paths that lead to confirmation of their biases.
Exoplanets Are Young, Too
December 22, 2018
Observations cause a major upset in planet formation theory, and the time needed for evolution. Two days ago, we reported the evidence for youth in Saturn’s rings and moons (19 Dec 2018). A new report from Science Magazine extends this youth out to the planets around other stars. Daniel Clery, in his article “Hints of […]

Cosmologists Out of Touch with Reality

Secular cosmologists can't find things that they tell us should exist. Is reality the problem, or is it dead-end thinking instead?
Climate Science Has Huge Error Bars
March 29, 2018
If one of your major model inputs is off by up to 50%, what does that do to the precision of your predictions about degrees of temperature change a century from now?
Geology: A Science Where Theories Undergo Subduction
March 8, 2018
In plate tectonics, continental plates get subducted and melt under pressure. That’s like what happens to geological theories. Read enough geology papers, and you will find old theories constantly being replaced. Classic examples include plate tectonics becoming the new normal after Wegener’s theory had been viciously attacked, and megaflood theory for the Channeled Scablands becoming […]
