Should science pursue truth regardless of consequences? Or must we succumb to political correctness? Must selectivity of females always equal males? Consider: Academic Activists Send a Published Paper Down the Memory Hole – by Theodore P. Hill “In the highly controversial area of human intelligence, the ‘Greater Male Variability Hypothesis’ (GMVH) asserts that there are […]
Researchers study and imitate natural silk to make ultra-strong cooling materials better than today’s synthetics.
Sense of smell is key factor in bird navigation researchers from the universities of Oxford, Barcelona and Pisa have shown in a new experiment that olfaction – or sense of smell – is almost certainly a key factor in long-distance oceanic navigation, eliminating previous misgivings about this hypothesis. . . .although the anosmic birds made […]
“two fossils of an ape-like creature which had human-like teeth have been found in Bulgaria and Greece, dating to 7.2 million years ago.” vs “combined base changes can be counted on the fingers.”
Can protein folding complexity be formed by stochastic processes? With 14 intermediate steps? JILA Team Discovers Many New Twists in Protein Folding Biophysicists at JILA have measured protein folding in more detail than ever before, revealing behavior that is surprisingly more complex than previously known. . . . They fold into three-dimensional shapes that determine […]
“The grammar of DNA might be even more sophisticated than we imagined . . .It could be that all codons could be start codons”
Sir Isaac Newton once said, “In the absence of any other proof, the thumb alone would convince me of God’s existence.” The USA’s Founders required the Bill of Rights in the Constitution, including: make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; Yet now we have US Senators coercing government […]
“three laureates discovered how to use molecules as components of tiny machines that can be controlled to perform specific tasks.”
Statistician William M. Briggs reports an amazing medical case where the “skull was filled largely by fluid, leaving just a thin perimeter of actual brain tissue.” Here’s the kicker: And yet the man was a married father of two and a civil servant with an IQ of 75, below-average in his intelligence but not mentally […]
Former Templeton Fellow John Fellow asserts: Why Teleology Isn’t Dead Conway Morris argues that in the grand scheme, evolution will not be reduced to chance: constraints built into life at the most fundamental level guarantee that life is going to follow the same evolutionary pathways to achieve limbs, respiration, vision, balance, an immune system, indeed […]
Dawkins: “Common sense doesn’t allow you to get something for nothing . . .” Lyfe: “Its a bit funny to try to define nothing!”
Evolutionist inquisition over Chinese scientists mentioning “Creator” force PLOSOne retraction.
Criminologist and former atheist Mike Adams summarizes the three foundational philosophical alternatives to the Cosmos: First, we can say that it came into being spontaneously – in other words, that it came to be without a cause. Second, we can say that it has always been. Third, we can posit some cause outside the physical […]
Error found in study of first ancient African genome “Finding that much of Africa has Eurasian ancestry was mistaken.” . . .
The remarkable “powers” of evolution are now shown to degrade (aka “mutate”) the human genes essential to intelligence. Remarkably, they found that some of the same genes that influence human intelligence in healthy people were also the same genes that cause impaired cognitive ability and epilepsy when mutated, networks which they called M1 and M3.
