Reading Time: 5 minutes When, in 1996 Pope John Paul II – now prancing around Heaven as a saint – said that “fresh knowledge leads to the recognition of the theory of evolution as more than just a hypothesis”, Amanda Chesworth, head of an anti-creationist Darwin Day group, pointed out in The Guardian that “at the time, newspapers in […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes Haeckel’s theory about embryos was wrong. This long-understood fact, which never was part of evolution’s foundation, is a popular complaint from Creationists.
Reading Time: 4 minutes T-rex soft tissue has been found inside dinosaur fossils that are tens of millions of years old. How do biologists respond to this embarrassing finding?
Reading Time: 5 minutes Has evolution breathed its last? That depends on whom you talk to. Some Christian apologists are certain evolution’s death is any day now, and so far they’re about as successful as with their “any day now” claim about Jesus. (Maybe they should stop predicting stuff.)
Reading Time: 5 minutes The sheer mind-blowing facts of our world never end. These rabbitholes we explore turn into warrens full of information for the curious to devour — and each new twist and turn in the warren only leads us to more questions we want to answer. At no time in human history has it been easier to learn and grow — and best of all, to share what we’ve found with others.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Granted, a worldwide slate-wiper genocide like the Great Flood, which we discussed just last week, would have caused even more devastation than the Chicxulub asteroid impact. I mean, that asteroid just wiped out most of all life on Earth — 75% of all plant and animal species, including every four-legged animal that weighed more than about 25 kilograms (55 pounds). That’s kinda small potatoes compared to what would have happened if some petulant man-child of a god had actually suddenly submerged the whole planet in many oceans’ worth of water for a while.
Reading Time: 10 minutes Hi and welcome back! For the last few weeks, we’ve been checking out various news stories from the world of science. There’s a reason for that. I think it’s hilarious to see how often — and how hugely — science completely devastates fundagelicals’ false claims. Let’s check out one of the biggest dealbreakers for Creationists’ […]
Reading Time: 10 minutes Moving on to Chapter 6 in his The Reason for God, Tim Keller takes on Richard Dawkins, who argues in The God Delusion that scientific literacy and religious belief are inversely related. The more a person understands modern science, Dawkins suggests, the less inclined he will be to accept the supernatural claims of any religion. To back this up, […]
Reading Time: 5 minutes Hi and welcome back! The science world took a long, long time go generate the first picture humans have ever made of black holes. But just a couple years later, we’ve made an even better one — and this one tells us a lot about how things work in the immediate vicinity of these terrifying […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes Hi and welcome back! Lately, biologists have discovered some interesting adaptations in snail life that show us that life — in the cosmic, general sense — often really does find a way. Today, Lord Snow Presides over yet another slap in the face to Creationists. Snails in General. Snails belong to the general classification of invertebrate […]
