Toeing the old-age line, the slow-and-gradual catastrophe, unhelpful terms, proving design, and more!
A fossilized footprint found in Kenya—thought to be 1.5 million years old—doesn’t look its age.
Instead, that footprint is “modern,” to quote ScienceNOW’s Ann Gibbons, who adds, “these early humans . . . walked just like we do.”
An ancient extinction wasn’t as sudden and catastrophic as once believed. Now, how does that reinforce the Flood model?
What’s so “remarkable” about the fossil preservation of a fish brain?
An X-ray has helped scientists see an extinct fish’s fossilized brain, thought to be the oldest-ever brain found.
After years and years of searching for life on Mars, scientists have finally found it.
In case you were considering praying to Darwin, perhaps you should read this first.
Self-described “lapsed Presbyterian” and disbeliever Andrew Marr asks, “In this year of his double anniversary, are we in danger of turning Charles Darwin if not into God, at least into the founder of a secular religion?”
The publication of a major Christian denomination looks at the Creation Museum—and comes out swinging.
Is the “first synthetic genetic system capable of Darwinian evolution” living somewhere in Florida?
In short answer, no. In a Florida lab, biochemist Steve Benner of the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution has created AEGIS: the Artificially Expanded Genetic Information System, which exists in a beaker of lab water. But while Benner claims, “It’s evolving. It’s doing what we designed it to do” (interesting choice of words), the article notes, “AEGIS is not self-sustaining, at least not yet.”
While no further information is provided, one thing is clear: this “life-form,” if it can be called that (it uses a 12-base genome instead of the usual four bases) was designed. And a lab-created, intelligently designed, synthetic version of life certainly doesn’t prove that anything evolved!
