  • The Latest on Neanderthal Extinctions

    March 14, 2013

    Many people find Neanderthals fascinating—though I’m not sure why. But whatever the reason, Neanderthal “enthusiasts” seem to be preoccupied with three primary questions:

  • Comparing Chimpanzee and Hominid Tool Production Helps Build the Biblical Case for Human Origins

    March 11, 2013

    New work by primatologists associated with the Great Ape Trust and Bonobo Hope Sanctuary in Des Moines, Iowa, observed two chimpanzees manufacturing tools from flint, modifying them for task-specific activities.

  • Sandage Test Affirms Biblical Creation Model and Constant Laws of Physics

    March 4, 2013

    More than fifty years ago, astronomer Allan Sandage proposed an assumption-free test for establishing which model for the creation and history of the universe is correct.

  • Life Hinges on Water’s Competing Quantum Properties

    March 1, 2013

    Ice floats. Clouds bring rain (most of the time). Water vapor warms the Earth. Water absorbs heat efficiently. Most of Earth’s water contains noticeable amounts of salt.

  • Prehistoric Artists Better than Moderns

    March 1, 2013

    Provocative results from a study of prehistoric art analyzed by biophysicists from Hungary seem to agree with that opinion. These scientists demonstrated that prehistoric (10,000 to 50,000 years ago) cave art more accurately depicts the locomotion of four-legged animals than does that of modern artists.

  • Animal Magnetoreceptor Cells—Evidence of Design? Part 2

    February 25, 2013

    Many animals—migratory ones in particular—possess the ability to use Earth’s magnetic field as a natural GPS. Although some scientists attribute this feature to evolution, this innate feature seems to make better sense in a creation context.

  • TNRTB Classic: Incredible Animal Instincts

    February 21, 2013

    Earlier this week, guest writer Dr. Hugh Henry introduced the topic of animals’ internal “GPS” as evidence of divine design. Research continually proves that animals have remarkable natural instincts

  • Animal Magnetoreceptor Cells—Evidence of Design? Part 1

    February 18, 2013

    Scientists are uncovering more and more data on the phenomenon of animal magnetoreception—which provides the ability of certain species to navigate using the Earth’s magnetic field. Is this remarkable ability evidence for evolution—or for a divine Designer?

    Water lubricates Earth’s plate tectonics. Plate tectonics transforms the surface (and atmosphere) to regulate the planet’s temperature so liquid water exists.

  • Podcast Classic: Symbolic Capabilities

    February 7, 2013

    A few days ago I wrote about new work by an international team of archaeologists that adds weight to the evidence that modern humans with symbolic capabilities occupied coastal caves in South Africa about 70,000 years ago.

  • TNRTB Classic: Ingenious Designs in Nature

    February 1, 2013

    Human engineers continue to look at living organisms to help solve problems we encounter in our own technology. Often, the life on planet Earth demonstrates more ingenious solutions than the thoughts of the best engineers.

  • Biology Continues to Inspire New Technology

    January 28, 2013

    Scientific literature seems filled with examples of ways living organisms inspire engineers to develop new technology. It happens so often that scientists developed a whole new discipline called biomimicry. ... The latest two examples involve water striders and rays.

  • Unitary Pseudogenes Have Function! Part 2

    January 17, 2013

    In part one of this two-part series, I discussed the context for an exciting discovery that demonstrates that unitary pseudogenes play a role in regulating gene expression—thus providing evidence in favor of design/creation models. In this installment, I will describe the work of the Oxford scientists who made the find and the implications for the creation-evolution debate.

  • Unitary Pseudogenes Have Function! Part 1

    January 14, 2013

    Biochemists from Oxford University recently demonstrated that unitary pseudogenes play a role in regulating gene expression. This advancement means the presence of shared unitary pseudogenes no longer demands an evolutionary interpretation.
