All for a skull, evolution leads to tooth decay, civing in a zinc world, and more!

Tooth loss and molecular decay purportedly prove Charles Darwin right. Does that mean brushing twice a day keeps evolution away?
It’s a zinc world after all?
When the Miller-Urey experiment was performed in 1953, the two scientists generated amino acids in an environment they believed was much like the early earth (a “reducing” atmosphere of methane, hydrogen, ammonia, and water vapor). However, the problem is that the conditions they used are no longer considered to be accurate for when life supposedly arose on earth.
The scene is reminiscent of a movie: intrepid explorers pierce the wilderness and stumble upon a trove of amazing species rarely—if ever—seen before.
As far back as 2001, creationists pointed to liposuctioned fat as a source of stem cells that didn’t require the destruction of embryonic human life. Good to see secular scientists catching on.
