Science says it, so it must be so, right? Well, here we have one of the most famous studies of all time coming under fire for presenting false data and conclusions. Shocking (pun intended). Sixty-plus years ago, Yale University professor Stanley Milgram used a fake shock-torture setup to show that people are frighteningly easy to […]
“What does it mean to be human?” is one of the fundamental questions we all ask. Every once in a while something happens to remind us that those influenced by Darwinism usually only answer the question with “not much”. As a case in point, just today it’s being reported that the father of a son […]
Horgan: As genuine progress has stalled, hype has surged. A 2015 study of biomedical papers found that between 1974 and 2014 the frequency of terms such as “novel,” “innovative” and “unprecedented” increased 15-fold.
“”We had no idea that the mechanism we would discover would turn out to be so remarkably complex yet contained and so elegantly integrated in one multifunctional molecule” Was that a shutter banging or the ghost of Darwin rattling in the night? Hard to tell these days.
Last week, the Ohio House of Representatives passed HB 164, the “Ohio Student Religious Liberties Act of 2019. The purpose of the bill is to protect the rights of students to religious expressions without penalty in the public school classroom. Under this bill, a student cannot be given a punative grade for simply expressing their […]

Sure, though it does feel odd to see the words “feathered” + “polar” + “dinosaur” in the same sentence. 😉
Soldier ants can be reprogrammed for up to five days after emergence as adults.
Clever little accidents, aren’t they?
Pearcey: Shortly after Johnson finished his book, his forewarnings were confirmed by the appearance of a book titled The Natural History of Rape, which argued that, biologically speaking, rape is not a pathology; instead, it is an evolutionary strategy for maximizing reproductive success.
God can create ex nihilo. Claims like “God wouldn’t do it that way” are mere opinion. The question for a scientist … is, what did he do? And once we are forced back on the evidence, the theistic evolutionists’ darling, Darwinism, comes more and more to be seen as the toad who is not turning into a prince when we finally get the princess to kiss him.
But the idea continues to exist in the world of half-ideas, the world of “if only.” Ideas that might work as fiction but we want them to be fact. Let’s call it Darwin’s “warm little pond”: “”But if (and oh what a big if) we could conceive in some warm little pond… ”
At Nature: “This avalanche of discovery is also stirring up debate: some researchers disagree over which fossil groups are true mammals and the shape of the mammal family tree.”
He jokes that the way his life intersected with Johnson’s was one of the best proofs of the existence of God.
“The high school textbook’s caricature of scientific method is not just bad philosophy, entirely inadequate to account for scientific practice. It is also bad history… “
