  • Centipede Genome Sequenced: Here’s What Scientists Found

    A group of more than 100 international researchers mapped the genome of the centipede, an arthropod characterized by an elongated body and numerous legs. The move marks the first genome sequencing of a myriapod, which includes more than 13,000 terrestrial … Continue reading

  • Easter Island people sailed to the Americas long before the Europeans

    The ancient Polynesian people who lived on Easter Island, who were known as Rapa Nui, were believed to be isolated because of their location. The island is in the middle of the Pacific and 1,100 miles from its closest neighboring … Continue reading

  • Decoding Snake-Venom Origins

    The origin of snake venom has long been a mystery to both creationists and evolutionists. However, by stepping outside the standard research paradigm, scientists recently showed that snake venom proteins may have arisen from existing salivary proteins. The Bible indicates … Continue reading

  • Study: Europeans were lactose intolerant for 5000 years

    DNA analysis has revealed that the early Europeans were lactose intolerant and that they have started raising domesticated animals such as sheep, goats and cows long before they developed the ability to drink milk from these animals without causing any … Continue reading

  • Are We Evolving Stupidity?

    Are we dumber than our grandparents? Social psychologists are tracking IQ scores and noticed a decline in the last decade after a steady rise since the 1950s. Some wonder if the recent downturn reflects genes that have been eroding all … Continue reading

  • 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

  • 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

  • Early creative skills may indicate intelligence in teen years

    A new study has suggested that kids’ drawings at the age of four are linked to their intelligence when they reach 14 which seem to be influenced by the genes. The research conducted at the King’s College London showed that … 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

  • Four-Winged Dinosaur Definition Doesn’t Fly

    What does it mean to be a dinosaur? Older generations understood dinosaurs as reptiles with hip structures that pointed their legs straight down, instead of out to the side to produce the sprawling waddle we see in crocodiles and lizards. … Continue reading

  • Study claims birds influence color of fruit

    Fruits can get their colors from a lot of places. New research suggests that the color preferences of the animals that eat fruit are among the strongest influences on fruit color. It’s an assumption scientists have always made, but now … 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

  • Oops! Evolutionists Disproving Evolution

    For protozoa-to-person evolution to have worked over time, purely natural factors must have conceived, constructed, integrated, and implemented new proteins into old organisms. Brave researchers—already convinced that this somehow occurred—have been investigating this core issue, but their recent discovery refutes … Continue reading

  • A Creationist Schism at Bryan College

    The evolution-creationism debate has returned to Dayton, Tennessee—the site of the Scopes Monkey Trial. Except this time, the venue is not a courtroom but a Christian college, where faculty members have resigned and students have mounted protests. The issue? Whether … Continue reading

  • Scientific proof we were created by aliens?

    by Gary Bates A recent news report claims: “a detailed analysis that the human genome displays a thorough precision-type orderliness in the mapping between DNA’s nucleotides and amino acids. ‘Simple arrangements of the code reveal an ensemble of arithmetical and ideographical … Continue reading

  • New Genetic-Clock Research Challenges Millions of Years

    by Nathaniel T. Jeanson, Ph.D. * Does a 6,000-year-old earth match the findings of modern science? Secular scientists have answered forcefully in the negative for generations. However, their arguments rest on the assumption of constant natural processes and constant rates, … Continue reading
