  • As a Taxonomic Group, “Homo habilis” Is Challenged in the Journal Science

    The limits of our genus Homo have long been controversial. One problem is that evolutionary biologists sometimes try to shoehorn un-human-like fossils into Homo in order to make it appear that ape-like and human-like creatures are kin. It’s a classic case of scientists letting … Continue reading

The last article in … Continue reading

  • Did Dinosaurs See the Grand Canyon?

    Evolutionists and creationists agree that dinosaurs did not look over the rim of Grand Canyon – but for different reasons. To understand how a feature was made, it’s helpful to know how old it is. Unfortunately, for one of Earth’s … Continue reading
