  • Protoplanetary Disc Model Falls Flat

    How did our solar system get here? Those who dismiss any possibility of creation imagine ways that pure natural forces might set in motion the sun, each unique planet and their moons. New computer modeling results seem to show promise—but … Continue reading

  • Watch solar tornado five times the diameter of Earth tear across Sun’s surface

    A solar tornado has been shown tearing across the surface of the sun for 40 hours. Temperatures in the tornado reached about 2.8 million degrees C. (or 5 million degrees F), Nasa said. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE SOLAR TORNADO!  … Continue reading

  • Giant Galaxy Ring Shouldn’t Exist

    A team of astronomers from Hungary and the United States, led by Professor Lajos Balázs of Konkoly Observatory in Budapest, has announced the discovery of an enormous ring of galaxies. According to the Big Bang model, this ring should not … Continue reading

  • Astrobiology: The Joy of Being Wrong

    An astrobiologist looks forward to the day when everything he says is totally wrong. What makes a planet habitable? In a BBC News article, astrobiologist Christopher Watson (Queen’s University, Belfast) piles on the constraints: “Clouds are reflective and therefore will cool the planet, … Continue reading

  • Planets Defy Bottom-Up Assembly

    As much as they want to imagine planets forming from dust, secular astronomers run into insurmountable difficulties. Look at what’s implied in this headline by Rohini Giles on The Conversation: “‘Teenage’ Jupiter may hold the secret of how planets form.” What’s … Continue reading

  • Pluto Is Young

    The New Horizons science team is stunned by surface features on Pluto and its large moon Charon that cannot be billions of years old. In the video, Deputy Project Scientist Cathy Olkin excitedly described the huge canyons and cliffs, the … Continue reading

  • Admit It: Mars Is Lifeless

    How much longer does the public have to be told that Mars “might” have life or space aliens “could” be found soon? A writer for New Scientist is concerned about the cost of protecting Mars from contamination. But the argument bears on … Continue reading

  • Discovery: Volcanoes on Venus

    The tortured surface of Venus appears to have been formed through recent geologic processes, and its rocks contain no record of deep time.1 What if Venus were young rather than 4.5 billion years old? It would explain quite a bit, including … Continue reading

  • Will Pluto Surprise Scientists?

    First-time encounters have a long history of shocking planetary scientists with unexpected features. It’s about time for Pluto. Since New Horizons was launched in 2006, Pluto went from planet to minor planet to plutoid to dwarf planet. The Plutonians surely don’t care … Continue reading

  • The seven-day cycle

  • Desperately Seeking Life Beyond Earth

    Earth life cannot be unique. How about you, Mars? Europa, anything? Enceladus? Comet 67P? Please break the silence! Comet 67P The latest evidence-starved speculation about life beyond Earth is that Rosetta’s lander Philae is sitting on a world sculpted by microbes (see PhysOrg). … Continue reading

  • Astronomers Lie about Star Formation

    A look at the evidence behind the latest claim of the universe’s earliest stars shows nothing of the sort. And that’s not the biggest whopper. “Astronomers claim first glimpse of primordial stars,” Nature News announces. Daniel Clery at Science Mag is even more brazen: “Astronomers … Continue reading

  • More secular confusion about the moon’s former magnetic field

    A recent paper by Clèment Suavet et al.1 in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that uniformitarian scientists, who assume the world is billions of years old, are still very puzzled about the moon’s magnetic field. They don’t understand why it … Continue reading

  • Newton’s book: A scientific masterpiece

  • Saturn’s Enceladus Looks Younger than Ever by Brian Thomas, M.S.

    The more we learn about Enceladus, the younger it looks. Stated another way, the more that our space probes discover about this fascinating little moon that inhabits Saturn’s tenuous E ring, the more challenging it becomes for conventional origins to … Continue reading

  • NASA Scientist: We’re Only a Few Years Away From Discovering Alien Life

    According to NASA’s Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan, humankind is just 20-30 years away from finding “definite evidence” of alien life. During a panel discussion this week, she said, “We know where to look. We know how to look. In most cases, we … Continue reading

  • Why is Dark Matter everywhere in the cosmos? A product of the Dark Side
