Rethinking Evolution

Evolutionary articles often say that new data will cause them to rethink evolution. Maybe they're not thinking deeply enough.

Physical and Geological Hurdles on the Darwinian Race

Can the smooth big-bang-to-brain story of evolution jump the physical and geological hurdles along the way?

Crinoid Pigment: 240 Million Years and No Evolution

Pigments from crinoids fossilized in early Mesozoic strata are identical to modern counterparts.

Theory of Early Oxygenation Undermined

Fossils living in and around newly-discovered methane seeps have cast strong doubt on a leading theory of earth's climate history.

Curtains for OOL: Oxygen Was Present from the Start

Free oxygen is death to life trying to evolve, but it was present early on, being formed naturally from atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Of Molecules and Men

Atoms and molecules are tiny but can have a big influence on the habitability of planets and astrobiologists' theories about them.

The Miller Experiment Is Dead; Long Live the Miller Experiment

The image of Stanley Miller pondering his spark-discharge apparatus is too valuable an icon to toss on the trash heap of history.

Secrets of Photosynthesis Coming to Light

"It's perhaps the most important biochemical process on Earth and scientists don't yet fully understand how it works."

Homage to Diatoms

Twenty percent of the air you are breathing came from tiny animals living in crystal cathedrals.

Lunar Tunes: Do Impacts Ring a Bell?

By looking at current dust and craters, cosmologists think they can hear the echoes of an impact that created the moon. Is that lunar, or looney?

Carbon Cycle Keeps Earth from Fate of Venus, Mars

Another delicate balance making Earth habitable has been identified: the carbon cycle.

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.

Evolution Conspiracy: Oxygen Photosynthesis Began Earlier Than Thought

Evolutionists are putting the rise of oxygen 700 million years earlier than thought, requiring the origin of photosynthesis that much earlier, too.

Bizarre Creatures With Incredible Design

Animals, whether living or fossil, often show surprising tricks of sensation, adaptation, or ornamentation.

Astrobiology: The Science of Could

Anything "could" happen. Shouldn't science deal with what does happen and what did happen? The "could" word is rampant in astrobiology literature and origin-of-life studies.
