Researchers Experiment Creation of Human-Pig ‘Chimera Embryos’ to Address Shortage of Donor Organs

LA JOLLA, Calif. — A team of biologists at the Salk Institute in California has reportedly created the first-ever human-pig chimeras in an effort to test the idea of growing organs in animals that can later be used in human transplants. “This biomedical advance has long been a dream and a quandary for scientists hoping […]

WASHINGTON – A Democratic lawmaker filed a resolution in the House of Representatives that, if approved, would recognize February 12, 2017, as “Darwin Day” and celebrate the father of evolution’s contributions to science. House Resolution 44, filed on Wednesday by Democratic Rep. James Himes of Connecticut, seeks to honor Darwin on the 208th anniversary of […]

Perplexed Scientists Think C-Sections During Childbirth Are Affecting Human Evolution

Perplexed Scientists Think C-Sections During Childbirth Are Affecting Human Evolution

Why is obstructed labor such a common complication during human childbirth? A team of evolutionary scientists thinks recent human evolution and the modern practice of childbirth via C-section contribute to the problem. Obstructed labor happens when a baby is unable to smoothly pass from the mother’s womb through the birth canal. A major cause of […]

Bird or Dino? Fossilized Feathered Tail Ignites Debate Between Evolutionists, Creationists

Bird or Dino? Fossilized Feathered Tail Ignites Debate Between Evolutionists, Creationists

MYANMAR – Evolutionists are heralding the discovery of a well-preserved feathered tail in Asia as evidence that dinosaurs once had plumage, while creationists maintain that the specimen likely came from a bird. Last week, a team of researchers consisting primarily of scientists from Canada and China published a journal article in “Current Biology.” The article, […]

Oldest Alphabet Identified as Hebrew Might Confirm Biblical Exodus

Oldest Alphabet Identified as Hebrew Might Confirm Biblical Exodus

(Evangelical Focus) — Douglas Petrovich, archaeologist and epigrapher of the Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo (Canada), is proposing an innovative reading of several inscriptions on Egyptian slabs from the 18th to 14th centuries BC. These slabs could be the first “alphabet” in the world, an early form of Hebrew with data that coincides with some […]

NASA Research Findings Stun Scientists, Seemingly Defy Important Law of Physics

NASA Research Findings Stun Scientists, Seemingly Defy Important Law of Physics

HOUSTON – NASA has published findings that seem to defy Newton’s third law of motion, thus casting doubt on a foundational premise of modern physics and astonishing the scientific community. Nearly 20 years ago, a British scientist named Roger Shawyer invented a theoretical rocket propulsion system that creates thrust without needing propellant. Known as the […]

U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Hear Case of Kansas Parents Concerned State Science Standards Promote Atheism

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from a Kansas citizen’s group that expressed concern over state science standards, which they assert indoctrinates children as young as kindergarten with atheism. “It’s not that they can’t talk about [biblical Creation],” Jim McNiece, chairman of the Kansas Board of Education, told reporters […]

Scientists Discover Musical Complexity in Birds That ‘Utterly Defies Evolutionary Predictions’

Scientists Discover Musical Complexity in Birds That ‘Utterly Defies Evolutionary Predictions’

Scientists have found that many birds exhibit strikingly human-like musical principles in their songs—a revelation that may be difficult for evolutionists to explain. In a paper published in “Royal Society Open Science,” an international team of researchers share their findings from a thorough analysis of bird songs. The scientists focused on the singing performances of […]
