Did immune system antibody diversity evolve?
The various adaptive immune systems in the animal kingdom are all equally complex, yet with major discontinuities between them.

Plant geneticist: ‘Darwinian evolution is impossible’
Ground-breaking research shows that evolution by mutations and natural selection just does not work.
by Don Batten chats with plant geneticist John Sanford
Desert creatures inspire ‘SandBot’
Even specialty vehicles such as dune buggies can end up hopelessly mired in sand. So designers of Martian robotic vehicles are looking to copy the ‘effortless’ all-terrain locomotion of earthly lizards.

Patterns of change over time: organophosphorus resistance in the sheep blowfly, Lucilia cuprina
Most pesticide resistance is due to natural selection on pre-existing genes, not evolution. But some resistance arises from designed mechanisms that allow for adaptation in created life.

Bird breathing anatomy breaks dino-to-bird dogma
A new discovery about bird thighs and lungs seems to be the ‘nail in the coffin’ for the popular notion that they evolved from dinosaurs.

The slow, painful death of junk DNA
New findings undermine the idea that large stretches of our DNA are useless.

Clarity and confusion
Behe shows that mutation and selection can accomplish little—nothing like the hugely complex machinery of life. But ignoring the Bible leads to confusion over a coherent explanation.

Tooth enamel: sophisticated materials science
Why are teeth so tough, although they are coated with material as brittle as glass? Because of so-called imperfections, as well as other features!

Darwin’s finches
Evidence supporting rapid post-Flood adaptation.

Is the human pharynx poorly designed?
Evolutionists love to claim that our throat design is too poor for a creator. But its design is actually superior to the hypothetical alternatives.

The human umbilical vesicle (‘yolk sac’) and pronephros—Are they vestigial?
A university lecturer teaches that the human umbilical vesicle (‘yolk sac’) and other temporary embryonic structures are vestigial—evidence that we evolved. Is this so?
by Andrew Lamb and Jonathan Sarfati
Intelligent Design: why the fuss, and what’s it about?
To some, design is a ‘no-brainer’. To others, it’s the thin edge of the wedge. How should we view it?
