/article/engineered-features-design-success-or-failure
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. These are the tremendous feats—produced by the incredible traits—of the imaginary character Superman. But science...

/article/plants-show-engineering-principles
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - Discoveries in biology keep pouring in that confirm biological functions are best described by engineering principles. A prime example is the recent description of a sophisticated control system in flowering plants that regulates their stem...

/article/rapid-changes-plants-demonstrate-innate-tracking
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - A recent study on a plant in the mustard family (Brassica Rapa) provides evidence that plants continuously track environmental changes both in real time and across generations. Brassica Rapa utilize regulated innate mechanisms to produce...

Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - On January 1, 2019, the American spacecraft New Horizons gathered close-up images of a rocky object over four billion miles from Earth. New Horizons launched in 2006 and was guided over three billion miles to rendezvous with Pluto (less than...

Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - Crime dramas tend to involve several potential suspects. Some suspects have a good motive to commit the crime but also a good alibi. Viewers presented with the exact same details can develop different theories about the culprit, and at some point...

Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - While I was chatting once with an inmate at a Pennsylvanian prison, he told me that upon his arrival a guard wryly said he was free to do whatever he wanted…so long as it was regulated. Regulations are a method of control using rules in...

/article/nature-walks-for-young-scientists
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - Many families have special Christmas traditions. Families with young children often start new ones, so why not try a Christmas nature walk? Without a doubt, the best Christmas gift we can give our children or grandchildren is time with them....

/article/logic-mechanisms-direct-creatures-innate-adapt
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - “It’s only logical” was the statement frequently made by the Vulcan character Spock in the Star Trek series. His logic-based decisions during times of crisis stood in stark contrast to the emotion-driven reactions of the humans...

/article/sorghum-and-bacteria-cooperative-design
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - The drought tolerance of a popular grain, sorghum, makes it an important global food crop. A recent study finds that sorghum manipulates soil conditions to promote a beneficial change in the microbes living on its roots when water is scarce.1 The...

/article/evolutionists-sense-design-deify-nature
Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. - The inclination of some evolutionists to project God-like powers onto nature is becoming more prominent in scientific literature. Some proudly personify nature in first-person, calling her Gaia after the Greek Earth...
