Stellar Superflare Reminder: Our Sun Is SpecialAstronomers recently detected an enormous but short-lived increase in radiation from the nearby star Proxima Centauri.1,2 This radiation burst, known as a flare, caused the star to become a thousand times brighter for ten seconds. Our sun also has flares, but those flares are much smaller.More...
Famous Physicist Stephen Hawking Dies at 76
Well-known physicist and atheist Stephen Hawking died at age 76 on March 14, 2018. He uniquely bridged the gap between ivory-tower academia and popular culture.
ICR nuclear physicist Dr. Vernon Cupps says, “He captured the public’s imagination and endeared himself to millions around the world. He is best known in the world of physics as a leader in exploring gravity and the properties of black holes.More...
"Selfish Gene" Metaphor Misleads EvolutionistsA recent opinion piece posted on the Chemistry World website1 notes that Richard Dawkins’ 1976 book The Selfish Gene deeply motivated a generation of biologists to adopt a gene-centered framework to explain why biological phenomena seem to operate for specific purposes. The book’s persuasion notwithstanding, the article notes ongoing challenges to the validity of Dawkins’ “selfish gene metaphor.More...
3-D Praying Mantis Vision Confounds Evolution
In the animal kingdom, many types of creatures use stereo vision to determine the distances between them and visible objects. In humans, each of our eyes records a slightly different version of what is observed. These two different views are then accurately merged in our brains to produce a single image—computationally using the differences between the two images to allow us to visually gauge depth and distance.More...
Secular Scientists: Earth's Inner Core Shouldn't Exist!
Earth’s iron-nickel core has a solid inner layer and a liquid outer layer. A recent paper presents a huge dilemma for naturalistic explanations of Earth’s origin. Earth’s solid inner core shouldn’t exist!1
Secular scientists had long assumed the inner core was initially in a liquid state but that lower temperatures caused the liquid at the center to begin to solidify.More...
Plate Tectonics After Fifty Years
The theory of plate tectonics recently turned fifty. Contrary to the claims of its critics, the theory of plate tectonics is derived from empirical data collected over many decades by geologists and geophysicists.1
In the early 20th century, Alfred Wegener studied the shapes of the continents, matched fossils and mountain ranges across vast oceans, and suggested that the continents had drifted apart.More...
ICR Discovery Center Update
I’m excited to showcase our cutting-edge research in the new ICR Discovery Center. One of the rooms will display a 48-inch globe that will track the progression of the Flood from Day 1 to around Day 314. No other museum has anything like this, and it’s all based on real rock data from across the globe. We need your donation so visitors can see there really was a global flood.More...
