Darwin, Design, and the Art of Being Shocked

Dr. Thomas Woodward of the C.S. Lewis Society introduces a new release of his book, "Doubts About Darwin," a history of the intelligent design movement.

Enceladus Pumps Imagination into the Vacuum

NASA astrobiologists abandon scientific restraint in a naked push to titillate taxpayers for another vain quest to find life beyond Earth.

It's Curtains for Enceladus

The geysers of Saturn's little moon are like sheets instead of jets, spelling trouble for theories of its ancient age and possible life.

Primordial Soup as a Wizard's Potion

Certain concepts in materialistic origin of life seem to have more to do with witchcraft than reputable science.

You Are Not a Martian

Every once in awhile, someone "suggests" that life began on Mars, not Earth. Here it comes again from someone who knows better.

Origin of Life Theory Invokes Resurrection

Some scientists from Europe and America believe in the resurrection – of proteins.

OOLishness: The Imaginary World of Origin-of-Life Studies

Why aren't philosophers of science shaming origin-of-life researchers out of the science department? OOL theories depend on imagination, not empirical evidence, for their broad-brush conclusions.

Oozing Life Up Against All Odds

The origin of life clearly requires a major leap in complexity, but not just any complexity. A conglomerate rock is complex, but not alive. Life has functional complexity – the ability to selectively take in materials to grow, move and reproduce. Life also requires growth, but not just any growth. Fire grows and reproduces, but is not alive, whereas a living cell grows and reproduces according to internal programmed instructions. Evolutionists think the origin of life by natural causes is a tractable problem that will eventually be solved. Let’s see a couple of examples of how their work is coming along.

Don’t PNA in our OOL

Theories for the origin of life (OOL) are in a crisis, unable to imagine how something as complex as a replicating cell could come into existence. Could PNA do it?
