  • An Honest Assessment of Why Darwinism Is Popular

    High school and college biology texts almost uniformly present Darwinian evolution as a theory that is now as well established as any other theory in science, and almost uniformly refuse to acknowledge that any serious scientists have doubts that the … Continue reading

  • Does a Distant Galaxy Show Star Formation?

    Some scientists refer to certain dust and debris clouds in galaxies as star “incubators” because they think stars form naturally within them. But since the formation of a star from a compacted cloud would take far too long to observe … Continue reading

  • Probabilistic Programming and Conservation of Information

    MIT scientists have improved on a new kind of computer language that enables “probabilistic programing,” Larry Hardesty writes for MIT News. The new algorithms allow a programmer to write in fifty lines of code what used to take thousands. Hardesty emphasizes that … Continue reading

  • Atheist Matt Dillahunty Goes After Intelligent Design — and Stumbles Jonathan M.

    I was recently directed to the above video featuring notable atheist Matt Dillahunty (with whom I have had interaction in the past). In it, Dillahunty makes a number of elementary mistakes that are quite common among popular-level criticisms of intelligent … Continue reading

  • Nuclear physicist embraces biblical creation

    Nuclear scientist Dr Brandon van der Ventel shares his creationist faith with Dr Jonathan Sarfati Dr Brandon van der Ventel obtained his B.Sc. in 1992 and his Ph.D. in 1999, both from Stellenbosch University in South Africa. For 12 years, he has been … Continue reading

  • Bernhard Riemann: 1826 – 1866

    By David Coppedge Let’s turn now to another remarkable Christian mathematician who, like Blaise Pascal, changed the world but never reached his 40th birthday: Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann (pronounced REE-mon). Mathematics is the language of science and the two are almost … Continue reading

  • John Napier, 1550 – 1617

    By David Coppedge Who was the first prominent scientist from the British Isles?  Who, in the early 17th century, stands in the line of pioneers of calculating machines?  Who doubled the productivity of early scientists?  Who according to David Hume … Continue reading

  • Does the Mind Create Reality or Discover It?

    By David Coppedge Philosophical questions about “reality” are fun if not practical.  But we need a concept of reality in order to function practically. “Get real!” we challenge one another.  Most of us believe in external reality.  The “correspondence theory” … Continue reading

  • Plants Use Math to Ration Food Use

    by Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D. A new study came out showing how plants utilize an efficient form of mathematics to precisely calculate how much starch to consume as food during the night.1 During the daytime, plants make carbohydrates through photosynthesis and … Continue reading

  • Plants Do Arithmetic

    By David Coppedge For keeping track of their food stores for the next day, plants perform “sophisticated” arithmetical division. The BBC News reported a discovery by UK scientists that “astonished” them: “Plants have a built-in capacity to do maths, which helps them regulate food reserves at night, … Continue reading

  • Universal negatives and excluded middles

    The logic of biblical creation Daniel T. from Australia writes: You mention on your site a few times that it is not possible to prove a universal negative (a quick search for ‘universal negative’ on your site yields a few … Continue reading

  • Culture vs intelligence

    Many people have questions about race and culture, but are afraid of being labelled as ‘racist’ for asking these questions. However, there are answers that reject both racism and political correctness. Ron R., Australia, wrote in, asking: Before I start … Continue reading

  • Human and Animal Brains: Uniquenesses and Similarities

    By David Coppedge Several recent science articles explore what we have in common with animals, and what is unique about the human mind. Grammar test:  A Science Daily entry tells the upshot in the headline: “Young Children Have Grammar and Chimpanzees Don’t.”  … Continue reading

  • Johanes Kepler (1571 – 1630)

    By David Coppedge By anyone’s measure, Johannes Kepler ranks as a gold medalist in the history of science. This great German mathematician and astronomer (contemporary with the King James Bible and the Pilgrims) discovered fundamental laws of nature that have … Continue reading

  • Cheating with chance

    by Don Batten The argument from probability that life could not form by natural processes but must have been created is sometimes acknowledged by evolutionists as a strong argument.1 The probability of the chance formation of a hypothetical functional ‘simple’ cell, given … Continue reading

  • Trial balloons and the age of the earth

    Geologist John Woodmorappe in his book The Mythology of Modern Dating Methods describes every age estimate as a trial balloon. When a scientist publishes an ‘age’, it is like releasing a balloon. If other scientists like his answer they will let the … Continue reading

  • The origin of the Carboniferous coal measures—part 3

    by Joanna F. Woolley The notion of the compatibility of form and function in plant organisms is used as a guide to mathematically predict the geometrical shape of Carboniferous Stigmaria (i.e. lycopod roots). It is assumed that Stigmaria were created to be in an abundant … Continue reading

  • Time, Eternity, and the Creation of the Universe

    Jason D., from the USA, a doctoral student in ‘biblical studies’ at Harvard, commented on the article Who created God? The article argues that from the principle of causation (anything that begins to exist needs a sufficient cause), the universe must have … Continue reading

  • Evolutionary Math?

    by Jason Lisle, Ph.D. Most people have heard of “evolutionary biology.” But the term “evolution” is often applied in a broader sense (gradual, naturalistic changes over long ages) to other fields of study. Some people study geology or astronomy from … Continue reading

  • Bees Outsmart Supercomputers

    One of the most fiendishly complex mathematical computations is the so-called ‘Travelling Salesman Problem’. Given a list of locations (e.g. cities) and the distances between them, it involves finding the shortest possible route in which each location is visited only … Continue reading
