  • Improbable Sailors: Do Animals Raft the Oceans?

    To keep their phylogenies and dates intact, evolutionists propose ocean voyages by unlikely animals—maybe even all of them. Monkeys Evolutionary biologists have a problem with New World monkeys. They are assumed to have evolved from Old World monkeys, but the … Continue reading

  • Myths Dressed as Science by Vernon R. Cupps, Ph.D.

    A recent MSN article claims a fossilized hominid called “Little Foot” found in a cave at the Sterkfontein site near Johannesburg, South Africa, is approximately 3.67 million years old.1 A similar report appeared in ScienceNews.2 Both articles provide insufficient detail to make an intelligent evaluation … Continue reading

  • Haeckel’s Fraudulent Embryo Drawings Are Pervasive in Biology Textbooks — Here’s a List

    Recently a colleague asked for a list of textbooks that use Ernst Haeckel’s fraudulent embryo drawings, which since the 19th century have been used to support the hypothesis of universal common ancestry. We’ve covered this many times over the years … Continue reading

  • Reading David Chalmers on the Coming “Singularity”

    New York University philosopher David Chalmers is well known for critiquing the scientific materialist’s vision of explaining, someday and somehow, the phenomenon of conscious experience in purely material terms. Chalmers has argued (now famously) that a philosophical thought experiment is … Continue reading

  • Information for Students about the Scientific Dissent from Darwinism List

    A public school science instructor recently contacted Discovery Institute to let us know that the required biology curriculum in the teacher’s district includes an inaccurate article from the National Center for Science Education (NCSE). Titled “Why Teach Evolution?,” the article … Continue reading

  • Explaining robust humans

    This paper attempts to explain the ‘robusticity’ of the fossil remains of ‘robust’ humans. A connection with long lifespans is suggested. Changes in development, linked to longevity, most likely involving thyroid hormone secretion patterns, are proposed as the primary mechanism … Continue reading

  • Out of Babel — Not Africa

    Newly published research combining genetic, language, and demographic data challenges the idea of a single lineage of languages and human populations evolving out of Africa.1 Instead, the data supports the idea that multiple people groups have independent origins—a condition one would … Continue reading

  • Thinking about chronology

    Archaeologists will periodically announce findings of ancient civilizations which they ‘date’ to many thousands of years old. But with a few ‘rules of thumb’ outlined below, you can have a good idea where to fit any ancient civilizations into a … Continue reading

  • In Bedbugs, Scientists See a Model of Evolution

    In the closing sentence of “The Origin of Species,” Charles Darwin marvels at the process of evolution, observing how “from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” Few people would … Continue reading

  • Evolutionary creation: evolution rules supreme

    A review of Evolutionary Creation: A Christian Approach to Evolution by Denis O. Lamoureux Lamoureux is currently identified as Associate Professor of Science and Religion, St Joseph’s College, University of Alberta, Canada. The author identifies his position as that of evolutionary creation. … Continue reading

  • Ernst Haeckel, Evangelist for evolution and apostle of deceit

    Known as ‘Darwin’s Bulldog on the Continent’ and ‘the Huxley of Germany’, Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel is notorious as the scientist who perpetrated fraud upon fraud to promote the theory of evolution. Born at Potsdam, Prussia (now Germany), on … Continue reading

  • Fossils May Belong To New Primitive Human Species

    Have scientists discovered a new species of primitive human? Two teams of researchers have been asking that very question after analyzing mysterious fossils found in China and Taiwan. The fossils don’t seem to fit with any known hominin species–including modern humans, … Continue reading

  • The myth of 1 Percent Human and chimp DNA are very different

    We still commonly see statements that human and chimp DNA are ‘almost identical’, with only 1% difference claimed. For example, in a 2012 report on the sequencing of the other chimpanzee species, the bonobo: “Ever since researchers sequenced the chimp … Continue reading

  • Encore Presentation of Patterns of Evidence: Exodus

    The Exodus is one of the best-known narratives in the Bible. It details the Israelites’ escape from Egypt after centuries of slavery, Moses’ rise to leadership, the devastating plagues on Egypt, and the miraculous Red Sea crossing. Yet many, maybe … Continue reading

  • Post-Flood man continues to become smarter

    In the evolutionary scheme, man evolved from an ape-like ancestor and slowly increased in intelligence and technical ability from the ‘Paleolithic’, through the ‘Mesolithic’, and into the ‘Neolithic’ over a few million years.1 However, further discoveries in archeology are showing that … Continue reading

  • The ideas of Teilhard De Chardin

    Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s most obvious claim to fame was his overwhelming acceptance of evolution, and an unquestionable passion to try to fit Christianity into it. He was born in Auvergne, France, in 1881 and entered the Catholic Society of … Continue reading

  • Did Neanderthals produce abstract art?

    Belying their reputation as the dumb cousins of early modern humans, Neanderthals created cave art, an activity regarded as a major cognitive step in the evolution of humankind, scientists reported on Monday in a paper describing the first discovery of … Continue reading

  • New Finds Reveal Fully-Human Neandertal

    The case for Neandertals as more primitive members of an evolutionary continuum that spans from apes to modern man continues to weaken. Genetic and archaeological finds are completely reshaping modern concepts of Neandertal men and women. Researchers interested in unraveling … Continue reading
