False, Flawed, and Unrepeatable — How “Science” is Losing its Aura

by Richard Peachey During the last decade or so, the weaknesses of current experimental science have been given increasing publicity. Below I provide a sampling of web-accessible articles from my (thick!) file titled "Questionable Science." In the context of the origins controversy, my basic point is this: If experimental science, being

Life On Mars?

by Richard Peachey In August 1996, a group of scientists published their claim that life may have existed on Mars at one time (David S. McKay et al. 1996 [Aug. 16]. "Search for Past Life on Mars: Possible Relic Biogenic Activity in Martian Meteorite ALH84001." Science 273:924-930). Their claim was based

Planet Earth — A Well-Designed Place to Live!

by Richard Peachey "The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to men." (Psalm 115:16) "In the 15 years since the discovery of the first planet around a star other than our Sun, we have found more than 400 such exoplanets — but there is

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

“Big Bang”: The Implausible Explosion!

Introduced by Richard Peachey The paragraphs below are excerpted from an article appearing in The Globe and Mail, Oct. 24, 1998, p. D5. The article, by Gregg Easterbrook, was based on his book Beside Still Waters: Searching for Meaning in an Age of Doubt. (Observe that although this writer appears

The “Science” of Paleoanthropology (Human Fossils) — Exposed!

Introduced by Richard Peachey In this article, an evolutionary paleoanthropologist describes the subjectivity and questionable science inherent in his own discipline! 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
