Actually, anyone who knows how finely tuned the earth is for life would say the opposite. SO far we have turned up absolutely nothing of life beyond Earth and Earth is stuffed with life in the most unheard-of places, as well as expected ones
Astronomers: The team’s observations showed that z8-GND-5296 is forming stars extremely rapidly is forming stars extremely rapidly— producing each year ~300 times the mass of our sun.
Are you surprised that these astronomers were singing so loudly from Darwin’s hymnbook? More on that later. An eyeopener.
Likely back soon, different name.
The guy who was not allowed to teach a course that featured information pro design in the universe, but other profs were allowed to teach against it? Background story here.
Nature: … only a few years behind in joining its sister craft in the vastness of space beyond the solar bubble.
I had advocated Barry Setterfield’s decaying speed of light model as a possible mechanism for seeing distant starlight on shorter time scales than billions of years. At this time I need to appraise those who have followed my defense of Barry’s theory, that I no longer think Setterfield’s versions of the c-decay are workable as […]
There is some benefit to ID if even parts of the YEC hypothesis are confirmed, the most notable example right now is Sanford and Cos work which was presented at the Cornell Conference. In a previous thread, I discussed the distant starlight problem is a thorn in the side of YEC. [the Vodka designation means […]
That was the shocking headline in 2005 in prestigious scientific journal Nature: Black holes are staples of science fiction and many think astronomers have observed them indirectly. But according to a physicist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, these awesome breaches in space-time do not and indeed cannot exist. … Black holes are […]
There are many devout Jews and Christians who believe the universe is old. Unlike Darwinism, the presumption of an old universe has real support from science. Philosophically, something as grand and as powerful as the entire universe would reasonably seem to be eternal. Standard thermodynamics and the Big Bang hypothesis changed all that, and the […]
Everything seems a lot smaller far away. That doesn’t make it less important.
HT: JGuy In a science journal Icarus, a journal dedicated to Solar System studies, we have this recent paper from Vladimir I. Cherbaka, Department of Mathematics, al-Farabi Kazakh National University and Maxim A. Makukov Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute, Observatory 23. The “Wow” signal in the terrestrial genetic code Abstract It has been repeatedly proposed to expand […]
Recently some astronomers have dramatically increased their estimates of how many planets in our little corner of the Cosmos might fall in the habitable zone around red dwarf stars! There could be as many as 60,000,000,000 such habitable planets in the Milky Way alone! Based on data from NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft, scientists have predicted that […]
