  • Dual-Gene Codes Defy Evolution…Again

    Discoveries of DNA sequence that contain different languages, each one with multiple purposes, are utterly defying evolutionary predictions. What was once hailed as redundant code is proving to be key in protein production. Proteins are made of strings of amino … Continue reading

  • Woman born without a cerebellum baffles doctors

    A woman in China has stunned doctors after a trip to the emergency room for dizziness and nausea revealed that a key part of her brain was missing. It appears the woman was born without a cerebellum, a small but … Continue reading

  • Darwin’s Finches: Answers From Epigenetics

    Authentic speciation is a process whereby organisms diversify within the boundaries of their gene pools, and this can result in variants with specific ecological adaptability. While it was once thought that this process was strictly facilitated by DNA sequence variability, … Continue reading

  • Why Evolution Is Different

    In the current debate between Darwinism and intelligent design, the strongest argument made by Darwinists is this: In every other field of science, naturalism has been spectacularly successful, so why should evolutionary biology be different? Even most scientists who doubt … Continue reading

  • Teaching Creationism is not Extremism

    A Christian organisation has issued a statement deploring the government’s announcement that to teach the Biblical explanation of the origin of man to nursery children equates to “extremism”. Truth in Science focuses on scientific evidence in support of Creationism and … Continue reading

  • Do Plants Use a Form of Language to Communicate?

    A researcher working at Virginia Tech may have discovered a new form of “language” that allows plants to communicate with each other and share genetic information. The study, entitled Genomic-Scale Exchange of mRNA Between a Parasitic Plant and its Hosts, … Continue reading

  • Ebola Outbreaks Visualized In 5 Charts

    The Ebola virus is one of the most virulent microbes known to man, killing up to 90% of those infected. According to the World Health Organization, there have been 25 disease outbreaks in recorded history. The current epidemic in West … Continue reading

  • Tough Antarctic midge has tiny genome

    The Antarctic midge, the only insect native to the southern continent, has surprised researchers with an unusually streamlined genome. The pared down genome may explain how the midge has been able to survive in the hostile landscape, say researchers in … Continue reading

  • Geneticists decry book on race and evolution

    A best-seller by former New York Times science writer Nicholas Wade about recent human evolution and its potential effects on human cultures has drawn critical reviews since its spring publication. Now, nearly 140 senior human population geneticists around the world, … Continue reading

  • The British Humanist Association and Creation

    For some years the British Humanist Association (BHA) has been campaigning to prevent children in UK state-funded schools being informed about the evidence for a creator. They have been remarkably successful, especially in their lobbying for the most restrictive government … Continue reading

  • ‘Dead zone’ in the Gulf is the size of Connecticut

    Scientists say a man-made “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico is as big as the state of Connecticut. The zone, which at about 5,000 square miles (13,000 sq km) is the second largest in the world but still smaller … Continue reading

  • Blanchard: Evolution is unquestionably happening

    When people joyously discover on Ancestry.com that they’re related to, say, a medieval archduke or a notorious Victorian criminal, evolutionary biologists may be permitted to snicker. Because in actuality, we are all related: Humans all share at least one common … Continue reading

  • NASA’s Far-Out Search for Life

    With lofty words about humanity’s future, NASA promoters discussed the hope of discovering life on other planets at a recent meeting in NASA headquarters in Washington. Despite billions of dollars spent on the decades-long search and the fact that not … Continue reading

  • Long life or eternal life?

    Imagine a Christian (let’s call him ‘Annas’) living in about the year AD 40. He knows that Jesus died on the Cross for his sins, but he doesn’t have the New Testament to tell him what it means, so what … Continue reading

  • New ‘dinosaur’ has scales and feathers

    Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” might need a little more revising — a newly discovered dinosaur species offers hints that feathers were much more common among the ancient beasts than once thought. Researchers unearthed hundreds of fossils of a new genus … Continue reading

  • New study refines biological evolution model

    Models for the evolution of life are now being developed to try and clarify the long term dynamics of an evolving system of species. Specifically, a recent model proposed by Petri Kärenlampi from the University of Eastern Finland in Joensuu … Continue reading

  • Evolution Made Me Do It

    It has become fashionable amongst the intelligentsia to offer an evolutionary apologia for all manner of human unintelligence. Adaptive justifications for obesity, religious belief and even political leanings have become au courant with pundits and pandits. Like all intellectual fads … Continue reading

  • Study: Walking on All Fours Is Not Backward Evolution

    Contradicting earlier claims, “The Family That Walks on All Fours,” a group of quadrupedal humans made famous by a 2006 BBC documentary, have simply adapted to their inability to walk upright and do not represent an example of backward evolution, … Continue reading

  • Did Adam Really Live 930 Years?

    Genesis 5:5 says Adam lived for 930 years. Judging by today’s standards, this sounds impossible. Many contemporary readers of Genesis balk at such numbers and some end up rejecting the whole Bible. But a few researchers have found reasons to … Continue reading

  • Does Evolution Explain Religious Beliefs?

    This is the eighth in a series of interviews about religion that I am conducting for The Stone. The interviewee for this installment is Michael Ruse, a professor of philosophy at Florida State University and the author of the forthcoming … Continue reading
