H2–Oh Really!

Just about 70% of the adult human body is composed of water. Interestingly, almost the exact same percentage of our Earth is covered by water. Through the years, scientists have pointed out a number of unique attributes of water that make it ideal for life as we know it to exist on Earth. The viscosity […]

The New Atheism Fails

Over the last decade or so atheism took a more aggressive turn. Four authors in particular were celebrated as the “Four Horsemen of the Non-Apocalypse” (an allusion to the biblical horsemen of Revelation). These four, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens, promulgated atheism with a missionary zeal. Their books became best sellers as they […]

The Chinese New Year is a single day, but the celebration has become synonymous with the “Spring Festival,” which lasts […]

Fangalabolo Identification

Last week I was on the island of Madagascar doing night research concerning a nocturnal flying creature that the Malagasy island people call “Fangalabolo”. The local eye witnesses liken it to a very large bat with a wingspan over 5 feet. There is some disagreement in the zoological information regarding the largest bat in Madgascar. […]

Variation by Design

A number of advances in our understanding of the underlying genetic mechanisms of variation are challenging traditional darwinian understandings. Evolution is supposed to proceed by random variations that natural selection preserves because they confer a slight advantage. But increasingly, we are finding that variation is not random.

New Ogopogo Video

A new video recently surfaced purporting to show the Ogopogo monster that inhabits Lake Okanagan in British Columbia, Canada. It seems to display a long, slender body, some humps and even flippers coming up out of the water. The creature’s total length seems unrealistic. But how long is a sea serpent? We really don’t know […]

Voltaire – Part 2

Last month we considered the work of the famous skeptic Voltaire. His railings against Christianity and the Bible were tireless. In 1764 he wrote, “The Bible. That is what fools have written, what imbeciles commend, what rogues teach and young children are made to learn by heart.”  It is reliably reported that Voltaire once held up a […]
