News to Note, April 26, 2008

A weekly feature examining news from the biblical viewpoint


The making of an evolutionary myth, some strange evolutionary relationships, and more!

1. Humans Considered to have Evolved Separately for 100,000 Years

New research published in the American Journal of Human Genetics purports to describe how humankind diverged, then nearly went extinct, and then finally reunited more than 50,000 years ago—at least, that’s the hypothesis. Associated Press and BBC News articles also take a look at different aspects of the epic chapter of human history supposedly uncovered by the study.

2. Modern Birds Linked to Dinosaurs Through T-Rex Protein

A study of proteins extracted from a T. rex fossil has evolutionists highlighting the long-asserted connection between dinosaurs and birds, according to a study reported on by National Geographic News.

3. Mysterious Icy Objects found In Solar System

A mysterious group of icy objects in our outer solar system is covered in “fresh powdery ice” and looks as though it is “no more than 100 million years old”—a far cry from the supposed age of a billion years.

4. Stephen Hawking on Unintelligent Life

We are “probably not” alone in the universe, according to famous British cosmologist Steven Hawking.
