/article/evidence-flood-grand-canyon-coconino
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - The Coconino Sandstone, famously exposed near the top of Grand Canyon’s splendid sedimentary layers, remains a controversial rock. Two counterclaims vie for its origin. If wind formed the Coconino’s now-hardened sand dunes, then the...

/article/icr-first-dinosaur-excavation
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - ICR conducted its first paleontological excavation on September 4-5, 2021. Last years’ inspection of a site on private property in Wyoming concluded that bone material partly exposed from a Morrison Formation outcrop might indicate a dig...

/article/haleakala-national-park-young-looking-volcanoes
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - You can start the day atop the cold peak of Mt. Haleakala and end it on a warm beach on Maui. The sprawling volcanic mountain rises 10,000 feet above sea level. Nēnē birds, cattle, horses, and people populate its slopes and summits. When did...

/article/did-dinosaur-herd-behavior-evolve
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - It is hard to identify the behavior of creatures just from their fossils. An international team of paleontologists tried just that on a big group of dinosaur fossils from Argentina. Their Mussaurus specimens included developmental stages from egg...

/article/fossil-chromatin-looks-young
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - What are the odds that a buried animal would still have intact DNA after 125 million years? Researchers publishing in the journal Communications Biology said exactly that.1 But it’s what they elected not to say that tells just as big a...

/article/three-hurdles-for-evolution
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - Sure, finch beaks shift their shapes, but does that mean nature invented beaks and birds from stardust? Evolution’s proponents often speak as though we witnessed the supposed steps from dust to planets, and from single cells to humans. This...

/article/waco-mammoth-national-monument
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - Hunters in the 1970s discovered mammoth bones exposed in sediments near the confluence of the Bosque and Brazos Rivers in north central Texas. They notified scientists, who began excavating the site. Decades later, in 2015, the site and...

/article/ganymede-looks-young
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - On June 7, 2021, NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s moon Ganymede than any spacecraft had ever before. Ganymede is the largest moon in the Solar System—a body larger than the planet Mercury. Its frozen surface holds...

/article/dna-in-sheep-and-dinosaurs
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - About 1,600 years ago, salt miners in Iran apparently left their lamb lunch down the shaft. Their loss became scientists' gain. The now-mummified sheep carcass suggests that salt helps preserve sheepskin DNA. The research results, published...

/article/crater-of-diamonds-state-park-origin-diamonds
Brian Thomas, Ph.D. - At Crater of Diamonds State Park in western Arkansas, families dig diamonds for fun while more serious sifters seek sensational paydays. Countless brides have wondered where the pretty diamonds on their rings came from. A visit to Crater of...
