  • Bacteria Share Metabolism Through Nanowires

    Researchers at the University of Aarhus in Denmark noticed something odd when they examined seafloor sediment that had been left for a few weeks in glass tubes—foul-smelling hydrogen sulfide had been removed from the top centimeter of the mud. This … Continue reading

  • Engineering Designs Found Throughout the Biosphere

    By David Coppedge News from biomimetics is coming in so fast, there’s only time for brief mentions in a growing list of living designs worth copying. From leaf to photocatalyst (PhysOrg): Engineers have “have used biologically inspired self-assembly to build … Continue reading

  • Optimization in Creation

    by Brian Thomas, M.S. It seems that the clearer the evidence is for creation, the more creative and crazy the stories rejecting it become. Specific examples of structures that God optimized—those He perfected—for their roles often highlight evidence in favor … Continue reading

  • How did the Creation change after the Fall?

    Dacid K. asks, “Please could you explain scientifically how rapid post fall restructuring of creation occurred to incorporate things like immune systems, changed biological structures to transfer to carnivorous diets, viruses and bacteria and host parasitic biological structures introduced at … Continue reading

  • The proportion of polypeptide chains which generate native folds—part 6: extraction from random sequences

    by Royal Truman A series of experiments designed to estimate the proportion of random polypeptides displaying minimal protein folding are evaluated. Candidates were isolated through binding to ATP, exposure to a denaturant, rounds of in vitro selection and error-prone PCR amplification, followed by … Continue reading

  • Incredible Microprocessor Protein Acts as Genome Guardian

    by Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D. Researchers recently studied a highly sophisticated cellular machine that acts as a guard for the genome against harmful mutations and that evolution cannot explain.1 Humans have two sets of 23 chromosomes, and a mutational deletion in … Continue reading

  • Human/animal hybrids: are they possible, and could they be saved?

    by Lita Cosner Scientists in China announced that they’ve engineered cows to give milk that is similar to human milk. The Telegraph website1 reports: The scientists have successfully introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows to produce milk with the same properties as human … Continue reading

  • Life Keeps Quality Time

    By David Coppedge Several recent findings describe how living organisms keep accurate time in surprising ways. Your UV clock:  Stem cells in the skin keep time to protect us from damaging ultraviolet radiation.  “Circadian Rhythms in Skin Stem Cells Protect Us Against UV Rays,” Science … Continue reading

  • Marvelous Machines That Keep You Running

    By David Coppedge Here are just a few of the recent reports describing the intricate biological machines on which life depends. Roundup and separate:  Take a look at the diagram in an article on PhysOrg, then watch the embedded video clip.  … Continue reading

  • Interdependence: A Conversation Starter

    by Brian Thomas, M.S. The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.” This means, whether they will admit it or … Continue reading

  • Toothed gears in jumping insects

    by Jonathan Sarfati Living creatures have the most amazing machinery, which should be obvious evidence of a Designer (Romans 1:20). Darwin on the other hand believed that all the machines were built by a blind process of tiny changes and natural … Continue reading

  • DNA in Amber Doesn’t Last Long

    By David Coppedge Claims of ancient DNA hundreds of thousands of years old may be false.  No DNA was found in an insect encased in amber said to be 10,600 years old. The article on Science Daily suggests that a study published in PLoS ONE puts the “final nail … Continue reading

  • Ethical Stem Cells Can Be Used Unethically

    By David Coppedge Induced pluripotent stem cells allow researchers to ethically create any cell type from an adult cell, raising hopes for regenerative medicine.  Eyebrows started to raise recently, though, when labs grew brains with them and turned others into … Continue reading

  • Mammoth clones coming to a zoo near you

    by Robert Carter Over the past decade or two, there have been many reports from various research teams claiming they are going to resurrect some long-lost species. True to form, one recent story tells about a joint Russian-Japanese effort to clone … Continue reading

  • Study Debunks Beta-Globin Pseudogene Evolution

    by Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D. A popular argument for human evolution and our shared ancestry with apes has lost its steam in light of new genetics research at the Institute for Creation Research and a recently published article in a scientific … Continue reading

  • Secrets of Sight

    By David Coppedge The number of processes involved in eyesight continues to grow, adding more focus and clarity to the miracle of vision. Keeping the lens moist:  Rays of light are focused by the lens of the eyeball, a precision … Continue reading

  • VlincRNAs Provide Clues to Genomic Dark Matter

    by Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D. Scientists have known for several years that the human genome is pervasively copied into various RNA molecules (transcripts), although scientists have been unsure about what much of it actually does. New research shows that about 10 … Continue reading

  • Could We Clone a Dinosaur?

    by Brian Thomas, M.S. In short, no way. But Christians should understand the biblical and biological reasons why not. Then we can have a meaningful conversation with friends and family, made more relevant by the theatrical re-releases of 3-D versions … Continue reading

  • Amazing Design in the Chemistry of Pregnancy

    by Brian Thomas, M.S. The onset of pregnancy presents an apparent contradiction. Ovulating and initially pregnant mothers experience an increase in progesterone. On the one hand, this hormone signals the immune system to back down and lay low. That’s critical, … Continue reading

  • Pseudogenes Regulate Immune Responses in Humans

    by Jeffrey Tomkins, Ph.D. Pseudogenes were once thought to be nothing but genomic fossils—the remnants of broken genes. Now they are being shown to be highly functional and critical to life processes in the cell.1 Pseudogenes clearly play an active … Continue reading
