“Briggs and colleagues were surprised to find that the COPI building blocks are capable of a ‘transformer’ act: they can change shape to connect to more or fewer copies of themselves.”
Sign the petition, but if you are alumni of small universities – pledge extra funds for science publishing.
“… similar to strategies that predators such as monkeys, sharks and blue-fin tuna use to hunt their prey.”
” … it is necessary to discriminate between those that occur as a result of contemporaneous changes in diversification rates versus tree asymmetries that occur through extinction-driven loss of phylogenetic history. “

In Part 2A and Part 2B, we analyzed in great depth the discussion between Crude and Dennis Venema. We discovered that Venema consistently evaded Crude’s questions, and that, even when he finally answered them, his answers were unclear and unsatisfactory. And we discovered the source of the lack of clarity – Venema’s self-contradictory commitment both Read More…
“Vast numbers of mutants were produced and screened, collectively representing many billions of mutation events. “
Open access journals transfer the financial burden from the readers, who no longer pay, to the authors.
I particularly enjoyed Denyse’s comment here about how, according to some evolutionary theorists — who should be more accurately depicted as evolutionary storytellers — Darwinian evolution programmed us to find Darwinian evolution difficult to believe. This is called science? A much more reasonable explanation is that our minds were programmed to invent computer programs, and Read More…
“Thus, the evolutionary process has depended upon the inherent, teleological capability of all living things to adapt themselves to circumstances, … “
Morality, as Kant pointed out, hinges neither on success nor on failure. The moral law transcends the material world. The evolutionist’s sophomoric response is that morality evolved and so therefore is not absolute, but rather is relative. That’s like saying water is not wet. And while they’re at it, evolutionists, at least those in the Read More…
Science journalists should forego assuming that people who doubt are simply not science literate.
The evolutionary hypothesis that the species arose according to a combination of random events and natural law—chance and necessity—is more than just the dominant paradigm of the life sciences. For about a century now evolution has been nothing less than biology’s over arching dogma—a fact to be accepted by all. Life scientists think in lock-step Read More…
“a newt that regularly suffers from anxiety attacks, and a bullfrog that appeared to actually be praying.”
All maybe, but it is worth looking at world life expectancy before we decide that the Industrial Age is a villain to health.
