The Ebola virus has captured headlines around the world. One of the big questions that I see being asked frequently is – where did it come from? Does it have a recent origin or has the virus been with us for a long time but simply not recognized? Clearly it didn’t come into existence in […]
Ken Ham would have us believe that the modern creationist movement, which apparently began only 53 years ago, is the real deal this time. Unlike all the other attempts to create a history of the Earth with a recent global flood as a centerpiece, this time it apparently is going to usher in a real reformation in both science and an appreciation for biblical authority.
A small chamber in a deep, dark cave. Tens of thousands of bones. Animal bones and human bones. Buried under dust and dirt and bat dung. Welcome to an ancient chamber of horrors. This is the Pit of Bones (aka Sima de los Huesos). In 1997, scientists discovered this small chamber within a much larger […]

Now I’m following up with “observational” evidence from DNA sequences to test whether the […]

That book is the Bible. For those that follow the creation literature nothing that Ken Ham said last week in his […]
A story is breaking today of a significant fossil find that was made almost a year ago but kept under wraps until the significance of the find could be evaluated. What has now been reveled is that over 100 footprints were found in newly uncovered rocks along a shoreline of England. Careful analysis of […]
