Massale sterfte onder amfibieën: Reden mogelijk gevonden
Amfibieën zijn echte overlevers. Tot recent ging het heel goed met deze dieren. Dat is nu anders: de populatie van amfibieën is namelijk getroffen door een crisis. Ongeveer veertig procent van de soorten zijn de laatste dertig jaar sterk in aantal teruggelopen. Nu weet men waarschijnlijk de reden! Salamanders in delen van Mexico en Guatemala...

Abiogenese en macro-evolutie
Omdat informatie de elementaire component van alle leven is, die niet van materie en energie kan afstammen, is een intelligente bron voor de informatie in de DNA moleculen noodzakelijk. Omdat echter alle theorieën van de chemische en biologische evolutie vereisen, dat de informatie alleen van materie en energie (zonder intelligente bron) afkomstig moet zijn, kunnen...

Als stenen konden spreken
Als stenen konden spreken… dan vertelden ze een verhaal! Sommige verhullen namelijk een geheim, diep vanbinnen. Je zult ze eerst stuk moeten slaan om dat verhaal te ontdekken. Geodes zijn daar een goed voorbeeld van. Hun verhaal roept allerlei vragen op. Hoe zijn ze gevormd? En hoe lang duurt dat? Een geode is een holle...

Geef mij een teken en ik word creationist
De laatste tijd roeren de monden (of beter gezegd: de toetsenborden) van atheïsten en theïstisch evolutionisten zich steeds vaker richting Logos Instituut. Vaak zijn dat overigens geen woorden van waardering, maar is het veeleer het verspreiden van een onaangename geur. Steeds vaker komt uit het toetsenbord van deze zelfverklaarde tegenstanders de volgende zin: ‘Geef mij...

In winter, we usually think of hunkering down, staying in, and slowing the pace. But even when Dallas got colder than Antarctica, crews were hard at work building the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History!(Okay, we’ll admit it was the South Pole’s summer.)But the crews’ faithful perseverance is paying off. The planetarium’s interior and exterior walls are nearing completion. You c... More...

February 12th is Darwin Day—Charles Darwin’s birthday. Many secular and humanist organizations set aside this day to honor Darwin and his legacy. According to the International Darwin Day website, a formal recognition of Darwin Day began in the 1990s with molecular and cell biologist Dr. Robert Stephens; geneticist, biologist, and philosopher Professor Massimo Pigliucci; and Amanda Chesworth, the former president of I... More...

Action PotentialsAre there long, gradual, pathways of functional intermediate structures, separated by only one or perhaps a few mutations, leading to every single species, and every single design and structure in all of biology? As we saw last time, this has been a fundamental claim and expectation of evolutionary theory which is at odds with the science.* If one mutation is rare, a lot of mutations are astronomically rare. For instance, if a particular mutation has a one-in-a-hundred million (one in 10^8) chance of occurring in a new individual, then a hundred such particular mutations have a one in 10^800...

Semmelweis correctly diagnosed the cause of childbed fever, only to be ridiculed by the establishment because he contradicted their opinion. Today the establishment reacts similarly to biblical creationists.

Because cells have the ability to adapt to certain stresses, such as a lack of food, they must have been functioning that way from the start.

Evolution relies on deep time which in turn relies on naturalism but science tells us the earth is young and so evolution is false.

UnresponsiveMutations are rare and good ones are even more rare. One reason mutations are rare is because there are sophisticated error correction mechanisms in our cells. So according to evolution random mutations created correction mechanisms to suppress random mutations. And that paradox is only the beginning. Because error correction mechanisms, as with pretty much everything else in biology, require many, many mutations to be created. If one mutation is rare, a lot of mutations are astronomically rare. For instance, if a particular mutation has a one-in-a-million (one in 10^6) chance of occurring in a new individual, then a hundred such...

No Matter How PerplexingNature does not make jumps. That old canon of natural history, as Darwin called it, goes back centuries and was heartily endorsed and adopted by evolutionary theory. Here are representative quotes from Origin, 1st edition, explaining important this doctrine was to Darwin:I have been astonished how rarely an organ can be named, towards which no transitional grade is known to lead. The truth of this remark is indeed shown by that old canon in natural history of "Natura non facit saltum." We meet with this admission in the writings of almost every experienced naturalist; or, as Milne...

Oh MyI recently cited a paper on the evolution of embryonic development and how the evidence contradicts evolutionary theory and common descent. Even the evolutionists, though in understated terms, admitted there were problems. Evolutionary analyses are “reaching their limits,” it is difficult to “conclude anything about evolutionary origins,” genetic similarities “do not necessarily imply common ancestry,” and “conserved regulatory networks can become unrecognizably divergent.” In other words, like all other disciplines within the life sciences, embryonic development is not working. The science contradicts the theory.But there is much more to the paper, and as a reader noticed, the authors give...

Beginning in 776 B.C. as a simple foot race, the quadrennial Olympic Games grew—during a span of 1,200 years—into the most prestigious athletic/religious festival of the Greek-speaking world. The feats of Olympic champions were recorded by historians and poets, and victorious competitors were thought to be the favorites of Zeus, chief god of the Greek pantheon.
