Did scientists really create a monkey? The headline says, yes they did create a Chimeric monkey. As often happens, scientists overstated what they accomplished.
Was there enough water to flood the earth? You’ve probably heard the claims. There wasn’t enough water to flood the entire earth. And even if there was, it couldn’t have rained fast enough. And even if it could, it wouldn’t have drained fast enough. So it couldn’t have happened. It’s scientifically impossible.
I read an article the other day that, if true, isn’t good news for penguins. Or for us people. It suggests that penguins and people share an evolutionary trait. Well, actually, it’s not a suggestion. It’s pretty much a statement of fact. But like everything science, and let’s be honest about it, facts change. That begs the question, is the statement, and its conclusion, true?
It feels like many Christians are afraid of science. They think science either will, or does, disprove Christian beliefs. But is this a legitimate fear? One of my favourite (intentionally spelled that way) authors wrote: Above all, do not attempt to use science (I mean, the real sciences) as a defence against Christianity. The thing is, if you recognize the quote, you know this is exactly the opposite of the way we Christians should feel.
Do the brain waves of a dying person show we’re in Heaven? We often read of near-death experiences people have. Some are real. Some are made up. Usually, people talk of bright lights, good memories, and a feeling of calmness. But, apparently for the first time, there is scientific/medical evidence that claims to show these near-death experiences are true. However, are they really?
A group of researchers have posed a fascinating — and downright mind bending — thought experiment: If a planet like Earth can be “alive,” can it also have a mind of its own? So – Is the earth intelligent, or is this something else? Maybe we should ask, how can there be an intelligent earth? For that matter, who says the earth is even alive? Or have we changed the meaning of alive?
I just watched the landing of NASA’s Perseverance on BBC. An amazing accomplishment. Katty and Christian were all excited about it. Everyone they interviewed was celebrating and grinning from ear to ear. As I was watching the people in NASA’s control room, I couldn’t help but notice some words on the wall: Dare Mighty Things. But when all was said and done, I couldn’t help but wonder – why not Dare Mightier Things?
How Much Of The Unobservable Universe Will We Be Able To See? Sounds like a trick question, doesn’t it? Actually, I left something out. The headline from the Forbes article is: How Much Of The Unobservable Universe Will We Someday Be Able To See? Now you’ve got it, right? It’s about technology. Or is it?
The headline reads New Universe map unearths 300,000 more galaxies. Of course, there’s nothing of God. But at what point will even the most die-hard scientists who still argue there is no God – when will they finally admit that God must exist?
The Discovery That Could Have Predicted Why the Universe Exists is the headline. The first comment at the time I read the article: Could there be an optical/mental illusion that we might be missing from these experiments? That comment is, accidentally or otherwise, right on target.
The Standard Model can’t possibly be right. But that same person says they have strengthened the Standard Model? And it excludes other models? Seriously.
