  • Two Mutations Caused Black Death

    The Black Plague of the Middle Ages happened by accident. It was enabled by two mutations to a bacterium, scientists claim. The germ that caused the “Black Death” is only a young bug, “evolutionarily speaking,” say scientists at Northwestern. Although … Continue reading

  • Geology Fail: The Problem with Proxies

    Using an observable data set as a stand-in for a theoretical model can be misleading, as several new geology papers illustrate. An ice core is pulled up from Greenland or Antarctica. Scientists measure oxygen isotopes at various levels. Do the … Continue reading

  • Humanists say their message is being suppressed

    Londoners have been exposed to a heavy dose of humanism through a ‘thought for the commute’ poster program which appeared throughout the public transport system. Sponsored by the British Humanist Association, the ‘thought-provoking’ posters—with the heading ‘What’s it all for?’—included … Continue reading

  • Colorful Dinosaur Eggs Challenge Deep Time

    German scientists revealed that some Chinese dinosaur eggs probably looked similar to the dark blue-green hue of modern emu eggs. If the dinosaur’s original pigment molecules revealed the egg’s color, then a significant question emerges. Can pigments really stay colorful … Continue reading

  • Order in the fossil record How can Noah’s Flood explain it?

    Order in the fossil record is one of the most popular arguments for evolution. If the fossil record has a consistent vertical order it’s claimed the fossil record reflects eons of evolution. Evolutionists also think it’s a powerful argument against the … Continue reading

  • Still Searching for Geology’s Holy Grail

    The origin of the continental crust continues to baffle secular geologists who often refer to this mystery as the “holy grail of geology.”1 The outer surface of the Earth is composed of numerous tectonic plates that are cold and brittle, compared … Continue reading

  • How old was Cain when he killed Abel?

    “And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.” Gen 4:8 The story of the first murder in world history is a sad one, but it also raises many questions about the Bible. … Continue reading

  • For Its Moral Ideals, Evolutionary Materialism “Freeloads” on Christianity

    Westerners pride themselves on holding noble ideals such as equality and universal human rights. Yet the dominant worldview of our day — evolutionary materialism — denies the reality of human freedom and gives no basis for moral ideals such as … Continue reading

  • The Lamb—and Genesis history—in Scripture by Carl Wieland

    Many biblioskeptics have tried to portray the unfolding of the Bible’s message from Old to New Testament as representing the ‘evolution’ of Christianity. Random genetic mutations are supposed to have generated totally new information, structures and functions in alleged evolutionary … Continue reading

  • Listen: Michael Denton on Paradigm Shifts in Science

    In this episode of ID the Future, ENV‘s Casey Luskin sits down with Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Michael Denton for a discussion of paradigm shifts in science. Dr. Denton reflects on shifts that he has witnessed in his lifetime, how his own … Continue reading

  • Genesis authenticated in clay

    George Smith (1840 –1876) had humble beginnings. He was born into a poor family in Victorian England and, having left school at the age of fourteen, had only a rudimentary education. He had many talents, however, and gained an apprenticeship … Continue reading

  • Genesis and the Cross

    It may seem odd for people to celebrate the humiliating defeat of their leader and hero. But the suffering, shame and death of Jesus Christ are a source of hope to Christians. No one wants to live in a world … Continue reading

  • Dinosaur Moth: An Evolutionary Enigma

    Scientists discovered a tiny moth on Australia’s Kangaroo Island and gave it the name Enigmatinea glatzella. The name is quite descriptive, as Enigmatinea means “enigma moth” in Latin.1,2 But why is this moth an enigma to evolutionary scientists? Today’s living representatives of this moth … Continue reading

  • Hegel’s Deity: How Evolution Gave Us Postmodernism, Deconstructionism, and Political Correctness

  • Why Such Large Animals in the Fossil Record?

    If size is a measure of evolutionary progress, things seem to have gone downhill since many fossils were deposited. Super salamander: A salamander as big as a car? That’s what was reported by the BBC News,Science Magazine and other news sites. Multiple fossils … Continue reading

  • The thymus gland and cot deaths High cost of evolution

    What causes cot deaths? We still don’t know. Over the centuries many ideas have been suggested. Since biblical times ‘overlying’ has been suspected (cf. 1 Kings 3:16–20). What happens is that the baby is in bed with his mother. In her … Continue reading

  • Einstein ’s Heroes—biblical creationists

    There’s little doubt that the most famous scientist of the 20thcentury was Albert Einstein (1879–1955). Today his name is synonymous with ‘genius’. Most people today would recognize his most famous equation, E=MC2, (though many would be hard-pressed to explain what … Continue reading

  • Dr Carl Wieland retires after four decades

    For the informed creationist it’s hard to imagine anyone who will leave a greater legacy on biblical (‘young-earth’) creation in recent times than Dr Carl Wieland (b. 1950). He will retire from full-time creation ministry on 6 March 2015. While it had been the historic … 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
