A reader wrote in to ask whether the “historical science” behind evolution is reliable. I explain that, contrary to what many creationists claim, it is. And they even admit it.
When people object to evolution they typically do so in a handful of ways, like the classic “why are there still monkeys?” An argument so common that the great “take that Darwin” twitter account always manages to find a dozen or so examples every day.
A reader asks what I think the best evidence for evolution is. I reply and much fun is had by everyone involved, since the evidence is pretty neat.
Creationists disagreed over what Homo naledi was. However, they never acknowledged the existence of such debate, until now.
Today’s case of psuedoscience comes from Belac. They also pointed me in the direction of the eolith nonsense from last time. Belac is quickly becoming my one-stop shop for creationist craziness. Today they’ve pointed me to the same place. Answers in Genesis, arguable the largest
Creationists claim to have done research showing eoliths are ancient artefacts that turn evolution on its head. In reality, their work is hopelessly flawed.
Human history goes back almost 10,000 years. Which might seem like a long time, but it’s nothing compared to our prehistory. That stretches back to the earliest known modern human, who lived ~195,000 years ago. We are an ancient species. So ancient that creationists seem
In their efforts to criticise the evolutionary origins of fire use, intelligent designists have misrepresented the views of both palaeoanthropologists and other intelligent designists.
Creationists try to break science so they get to be included, but in the process they have to accept silly ideas. Like aliens being demons.
In the depths of Bruniquel Cave, France, lie an enigmatic series of circles. They are made from stalagmites, on which a residue accumulated since they were placed. Radiometric dating this coating revealed these circles predated the arrival of modern humans in France. Clearly, Neanderthals must
