Mistaken Microfossils! (And Other Erroneous Evidence of Early Earthlife)

by Richard Peachey BEFORE 2002: When evolutionists discussed life on the early Earth, they could point with confidence to a variety of apparently well-documented evidence from several locations around the globe (Australia, Greenland, South Africa). TODAY: Every piece of alleged evidence has now been thrown into doubt, and the field

What is the Most Serious Problem for All Evolutionary “Origin of Life” Theories?

by George Wald, Harvard biologist and Nobel laureate (Scientific American, Aug 1954, pp. 44, 49-50) “In the vast majority of the processes in which we are interested the point of equilibrium lies far over toward the side of dissolution. That is to say, spontaneous dissolution is much more probable, and

Chemical Evolution: The Problem Of Improbable Proteins

by Richard Peachey Living cells employ proteins to perform a variety of important functions, including catalysis, structure, storage, communication, movement, transport, gatekeeping, and defense. To construct proteins from amino acid "building blocks," cells use very complex procedures. But evolutionists suggest that these key molecules originally came into being through naturalistic,

Can Scientists Create “Life” in a Test Tube?

by Richard Peachey In what many consider to be a classical "origin of life" experiment, Stanley Miller synthesized some amino acids (building blocks of proteins) from a circulating mixture of gases hypothesized to represent Earth's primordial atmosphere. Miller used an electrical spark to simulate a lightning-like energy source. Although this

All quotations are from Roger Lewin. 1997. Bones of Contention. 2nd edition. Chicago: University of Chicago Press. Page number references from this book are given at the beginning of

Not “Junk”!

An Extensive Collection of Quotes Indicating Functionality in Non-Protein-Coding DNA Compiled and introduced by Richard Peachey This statement from a well-known evolutionist and textbook author was published in early 1994: "In fact, the human genome is littered with pseudogenes, gene fragments, 'orphaned' genes, 'junk' DNA, and so many repeated copies

Are “Vestigial Organs” Valid Evidence of Evolution?

by Richard Peachey What are "vestigial organs"? "Vestigial" or "rudimentary" organs are biological structures that have no function. In The Descent of Man, Charles Darwin listed such human structures as wisdom teeth, the appendix, and the coccyx ("tailbone") as "rudimentary organs" (Scadding 173f.). In his earlier book, The Origin of

Is Peripatus a Valid Evolutionary Intermediate?

by Richard Peachey Peripatus is an organism classified within the phylum Onychophora, a group known as "velvet worms" or "onychophorans" (meaning "claw-bearers"). These animals live mostly in humid forests, especially in the tropics. They hide by day under rotting logs and in leaf litter, and hunt for prey at night.

Sickle-Cell Anemia: Example of a “Beneficial Mutation”?

by Richard Peachey What is Sickle-Cell Anemia? Sickle-cell anemia is a genetic disease common to persons of West and Central African ancestry. It is characterized by severe anemia with symptoms of pallor, muscle cramps, weakness, and susceptibility to fatigue. Additional symptoms include heart enlargement, brain cell atrophy, and severe pain
