  • 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

  • Dazzling DNA

    By: Don Batten This is an exciting time to be a creationist! Following pilot studies published in 2007,1 the ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) project has now published some 30 papers of phase two, revealing that most of our DNA is functional and effectively … Continue reading

  • Duons: Parallel Gene Code Defies Evolution

    By: Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D.* Researchers have just characterized a new, previously hidden genetic code embedded within the same sections of genes that code for proteins—utterly defying all naturalistic explanations for its existence.1 In addition to supplying many different types of … Continue reading

  • Genetic code optimisation: Part 1

    by Royal Truman and Peter Borger The genetic code as we find it in nature—the canonical code—has been shown to be highly optimal according to various criteria. It is commonly believed the genetic code was optimised during the course of an evolutionary … Continue reading

  • The bacterium that came in from the cold

    by Jonathan O’Brien Some animals live for 200 years or more, and there are trees which live much longer still.1,2 But here’s a story about an organism which, some scientists say, trumps them all. There have been several recent claims that scientists … Continue reading

  • Best Creation News of 2013: Human Origins

    by Brian Thomas, M.S. The popular notion that humans evolved from ape-like ancestors took several heavy hits this past year—both from secular and creation-friendly research—confirming that God created man in His image according to Genesis. Three major pillars supporting a … Continue reading

  • More Surprises for Evolutionists

    By David Coppedge Neo-Darwinists would not have predicted the results they got when studying fish, alligators, monkeys and mice. Blind Fish See Adaptive Light In the article “Blind Cavefish Offer Evidence for Alternative Mechanism of Evolutionary Change,” Science Daily summarizes a paper in Science that … Continue reading

  • Shark Origins: An Evolutionary Explanation

    by Frank Sherwin, M.A. During a recent visit to Florida’s Clearwater Marine Aquarium, I peered into a tank containing a host of animals, including a sleek and formidable shark, and thought of evolutionist Theodosius Dobzhansky’s dictum “Nothing in biology makes … Continue reading

  • Unfortunately, Mutations Won’t Create Superheroes

    By Jeff Miller, Ph.D. The comic book series X-Men is based on the idea that evolution will eventually cause humans to mutate into new, more advanced super-humans. While that might sound kind of cool, the idea is just as much fiction as … Continue reading

  • Oldest Human DNA Can’t Be As Old As They Think

    By R. L. David Jolly If you believe one of the latest reports from a group of researchers, Adam and Eve could not be real people and the Genesis account of creation is nothing more than a religious myth. Working … Continue reading

  • On the Origin of Snakes

    By David Coppedge New studies of snakes and their genes are surprising scientists with stories of “rapid evolution.”  Some findings offer potential for human health. Snakes made headlines in scientific papers in the last couple of weeks.  With the publishing … Continue reading

  • Ho-Hum; Paleoanthropologists Confused Again

    By David Coppedge Upsets are so common in evolutionary studies of human ancestry, bystanders might well ask how often they find anything worth believing. “Hominin DNA baffles experts” reads a headline on Nature News, one of a slurry of reports about the genome deciphered … Continue reading

  • Double-decade dinosaur disquiet

    For twenty years now, dino bones have progressively divulged their contents to researchers who did not expect to find the likes of DNA and radiocarbon ‘millions of years’ after dinosaur extinction. by David Catchpoole Many dinosaur fossils include real bone—they are not completely mineralized, … Continue reading

  • Scientist: Humans Evolved From Chimpanzee and Pig Mating

    Scientist and author Eugene M. McCarthy has proposed an hypothesis that humans evolved from a female chimpanzee and male pig mating. McCarthy reports, “Is it possible for a pig to hybridize with a chimpanzee? I have no way of knowing … Continue reading
