  • Podcast Highlight: A Sensible Approach to Climate Change

    March 1, 2012

    On Monday, guest writer and climatologist Kevin Birdwell explained the impact that ocean systems have on climate change and the importance of understanding these systems to comprehend what’s going on in our planet’s atmosphere.

    • Global Warming
  • Perspectives on Theistic Evolution

    February 29, 2012

    Listen in as RTB scholars explain how theistic evolution may not provide a simple resolution to science-faith controversies.

  • Climate Change: The Oceanic Thermostat

    February 27, 2012

    The current debate over climate change has raised many questions about what is and isn’t currently understood about the global climate system.

  • TNRTB Classic: Water and Plate Tectonics

    February 23, 2012

    A growing body of evidence indicates that Venus, Mars, and Earth all started with a large quantity of water.

    It comes as no surprise that Mars is dry.

  • TNRTB Classic: Ancient Collagen Explained

    February 16, 2012

    A few days ago, I explained why the recovery of cuttlefish fossils containing the organic material chitin fails to support the young-earth model.

  • Chitin in Ancient Cuttlefish Fails to Support Young-Earth Creationism

    February 13, 2012

    A young-earth proponent claims it’s impossible for an organic material like chitin to survive 35 million years—thus the chitin remains associated with cuttlefish fossils must be only a few thousand years old. His argument is not unreasonable, but the chemical nature of chitin coupled with the burial and fossilization environment provide ample support for the 35-million-year date.

  • TNRTB Classic: Rodents Are a Good Thing

    February 9, 2012

    It goes against human nature to feel gratitude for mice and rats—nevertheless, there are a lot of reasons to be thankful for rodents. This Monday I discussed the benefits mankind and the environment have received from beavers. For more reasons to thank God for rodents, check out this previous article on breakthrough research conducted on mice and rats.

  • Thank God for Beaver Dams

    February 6, 2012

    A recent study helped reveal the importance of beaver dams. Yet as a native of Canada, I have always been thankful for these furry rodents and their dams. (The beaver is the national animal of Canada and is depicted on the Canadian nickel.)

  • TNRTB Classic: Thinking About Cloning

    February 2, 2012

    A few days ago I proposed a theological framework to help Christians think about synthetic biology and the creation of life in the lab. It is also important that believers know how to think about advances in other areas of biotechnology. One controversial area of particular concern is cloning. Below is a link to a past article that provides a framework to help Christians wrestle with issues surrounding reproductive and therapeutic cloning.

    February 1, 2012

    Skeptics often point to human wisdom teeth as an example of a useless human body part. But a new study challenges this evolutionary account.

    February 1, 2012

    A team of geologists and geophysicists at Colorado State University recently discovered that beavers gave humanity more than warm coats and hats.

  • A Theology for Synthetic Biology, Part 2 (of 2)

    January 30, 2012

    With the creation of artificial life in the lab on the horizon, many people—Christians in particular—are asking if synthetic biology is a safe and ethical discipline.

    • Artificial Life in the Lab
  • TNRTB Classic: Cell Blueprints

    January 26, 2012

    A few days ago I asserted that the creation of artificial life in the laboratory demonstrates that the genesis of life requires the work of intelligent agency. Success in synthetic biology, whether from the bottom-up or top-down, requires the work of highly trained scientists who rely on several hundred years of scientific knowledge. In the process, these researchers develop sophisticated strategies and elaborate protocols that they execute carefully in a controlled environment, often with sophisticated instrumentation.
