  • Planet Habitability Requires a Lifetime of Fine-Tuning

    November 1, 2012

    Just as longer tent habitability requires much more design, according to several teams of astronomers the same is true for planet habitability.

  • Did Humans and Neanderthals Interbreed?

    November 1, 2012

    In recent years, paleoanthropologists have produced their own tabloid-like headlines, though they’ve been published in some of the world’s best peer-reviewed science journals. The sensational story?—whether or not humans interbred with hominids, specifically Neanderthals and the newly discovered Denisovans.

  • Neanderthal Burials “Deep-Sixed”

    November 1, 2012

    “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” is one of my favorite songs. This tune perfectly captures the mixture of deep sadness, joy, and hope that Christians experience at the funeral of a loved one.

  • Is the Cyclical Mayan Calendar Correct?

    November 1, 2012

    One cartoon Mayan to another as they look at a huge round rock: “So how come it ends in 2012?” . . . “I ran out of space on the rock.”

  • Alien Particles Challenge a Young-Earth Creation Model

    October 29, 2012

    A collimated beam of meteoroids from the star Beta Pictoris has been discovered. However, the ejection dynamics at the star and the meteoroids’ detection on Earth cannot be reconciled with a young universe. This discovery directly challenges two tenets of young-earth proponent Dr. Jason Lisle’s model for solving the distant starlight problem.

  • First Plants Bring Major Climate Change

    October 15, 2012

    RTB’s creation model posits that the change in life throughout Earth’s history reflects the work of a divine intelligence transforming a hostile-to-life planet into one capable of supporting humanity. As the environs change, so must the life.

  • TNRTB Classic: Junk DNA and the Nucleoskeletal Hypothesis

    October 11, 2012

    A few days ago I wrote about the ENCODE project and the new recognition that, at minimum, 80 percent of the human genome consists of functional DNA elements. Despite some skeptics’ complaints that the media, creationists, and intelligent design adherents have misconstrued the ENCODE report, the project’s results stand.

  • Responding to ENCODE “Skeptics”

    October 8, 2012

    Recently, the ENCODE Project Consortium reported that 80 percent of the human genome consists of functional elements, major indicators of design. But some skeptics assert (loudly) that the results of the ENCODE project have been overhyped and misconstrued. In this article, I respond to the most salient points made by the ENCODE “skeptics.”

    Many people have asked me if Reasons to Believe would feature on its website some videos that show the scholars in action, particularly in debate contexts. These inquirers have said that such resources would be helpful not only for anticipating and responding to objections to our position but also for modeling behavior.

    Earth exhibits remarkable characteristics such as massive volcanic eruptions, enduring magnetic fields, majestic mountain vistas, an oxygen-rich atmosphere, and long-lived oceans. While each of these highlight different ways Earth appears designed to support life, they also serve as useful illustrations of biblical principles.
