  • Australopith Child Gets an Academic Spanking

    A fossil group of alleged evolutionary human ancestors called australopithecines—all quite ape-like in their features—have traditionally been uncooperative as transitional forms. Now the famous Taung child, a supposed example exhibiting early transitional developmental skull features has been debunked. One of … Continue reading

  • Cambrian Fossil Intensifies Evolutionary Conundrum

    New fossil finds further verify one of evolution’s biggest problems: the Cambrian explosion. According to evolutionary reckoning, a massive explosion of new life supposedly spawned dozens of brand-new fully formed body plans about 530 million years ago. How could so … Continue reading

  • Fossil Shows ‘Early Complex Multicellular Life’

    Tiny spheroidal fossils from a formation in South China provide insights into the early evolutionary history of complex multicellular life, according to scientists from Virginia Tech and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. While the exact identity and affinities of these … Continue reading

  • Dr. Jason Lisle on Observable Evolution

    “Science involves observation and experimentation. However, no one has observed one basic kind of organism changing into another kind.”  “Claims that such changes take place over a very long timeframe cannot be observed. This is beyond the scope of observational … Continue reading

  • Alligator ancestor antics

    by Don Batten Dr Carl Werner found this alligator fossil (bottom right) on display at Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta, Canada. Evolutionists regard this as a ‘dinosaur era’ (Cretaceous) fossil. Dr Werner noted the similarity to living alligators that he had seen … Continue reading

  • Dean H. Kenyon on Transitional Forms

    And let us dispose of a common misconception. The complete transmutation of even one animal species into a different species has never been directly observed either in the laboratory or in the field.”    Dean H. Kenyon (Professor of Biology, … Continue reading

  • The Evolution of Penguins

    By David Coppedge Science reporters are dancing with happy feet about a news story supposedly explaining how penguins evolved. The new documentary Flight: The Genius of Birds states, “More than 9,000 species of birds have been identified in the world, and nearly … Continue reading

  • ‘Transitional form’ in mammal ear evolution—more cacophony

    by Shaun Doyle A new fossil mammal, Liaoconodon hui, was found in Liaoning and ‘dated’ at 120 Ma (million years) old. It has been hailed as a transitional form between reptiles and modern mammals because of its unique ear bone morphology. However, … Continue reading

  • California Whale Fossils: Transitional Forms?

    Several fossil whale parts found in a southern California canyon are being called transitional forms in whale evolution. The article on Science NOW doesn’t say “transitional” in the headline or first half of the story, but the RSS feed subtitle says, “Road project reveals transitional … Continue reading

  • Divining Darwin’s Tree Is a Never-Ending Task

    Some scientific papers brag that Darwin’s universal tree of life is coming into sharper focus, but as the data increase, so do the problems. Evolutionary Topiary Case in point: Maximilan Telford in Science Magazine presumed to write about “The Animal Tree of … Continue reading

  • Evolution of Flight: A Story Looking for Evidence

    An evolutionary dogma is that land dinosaurs evolved into flying birds.  When the claims are acid-washed with critical analysis, what evidence remains? 1. Early bird tryouts:  One claim going around now is that Archaeopteryx and other “early birds” were poor flyers, implying … Continue reading

  • Rodhocetus and Other Stories of Whale Evolution

    Asked for a good example of transitional fossils showing evolution, many evolutionists put forward whales. Museums and textbooks show pictures of creatures that supposedly show the evolution of whales from a land animal. Key to this story is a fossil … Continue reading

  • Richard B. Goldschmidt on Lack of Transitional Forms

    “The facts of greatest general importance are the following.  When a new phylum, class, or order appears, there follows a quick, explosive (in terms of geological time) diversification so that practically all orders or families known appear suddenly and without … Continue reading

  • Evolutionists Claim Dinosaurs Evolved Feathers for Courting

    Evolutionists are convinced that some dinosaurs had feathers, and I’m not saying they are wrong.  Maybe they did and maybe that didn’t, but it doesn’t mean they evolved into birds any more than saying a duck evolved into a platypus … Continue reading

  • North American ‘feathered’ dinosaurs a flight of fancy

    by Tas Walker The science news has been abuzz with astounding claims that the first ‘feathered dinosaur’ has been found in North America (See Dinosaurs looking for love grew alluring feathers). Science Daily announced, “Fossils of first feathered dinosaurs from North America discovered: Clues … Continue reading

  • Primitive Birds and Flying Dinosaurs For Dinner

    It never ceases to amaze me how so many scientists can conduct a very good study into something, but when they report their findings, they go beyond their facts and extrapolate their beliefs, often times causing the facts to be … Continue reading

  • Rudolfensis and the Red-Nosed Paleoanthropologist

    Add Leakey to Homo skulls and what do you get?  Headlines! — with fine print that undermines the celebration. The news media were full of headlines this week about our latest ape-like ancestors.  New Scientist announced, “Fossils confirm three early humans roamed Africa.”  Pallab Ghosh … Continue reading

  • ‘Feathered’ Dinos: No Feathers After All!

    by Dr Jonathan D Sarfati Ever since Darwin, evolutionists have had a huge difficulty: the fossil record lacks the innumerable ‘missing links’ predicted by them and required by their theory. Instead, all evolutionists can produce are a handful of debatable examples … Continue reading

  • Egg Shape Does Not Prove Dinosaur Bird Relationship

    Once again the fossilized eggs of a dinosaur, Sankofa pyrenaica are being touted as evidence of the evolution of dinosaurs to birds.  While I wrote about this several months ago – Dinosaurs, Birds and Easter Eggs – I wanted to … Continue reading

  • Eats Shoots and Leaves

    This is not a crime story, but a story nonetheless. The latest human evolution star, Australopithecus sediba, ate leaves, according to its publicist, Lee Berger.  In Nature News on July 5 (Margaret J. Schoeninger entertained the idea, giving credit to the star behind … Continue reading
