    Pro-life leaders urge end to fetal research

    Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore has joined more than 40 other pro-life leaders in urging the Trump administration to halt federal use of aborted baby tissue for research. The letter sent Tuesday (Sept. 11) came in response to an early August report that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) signed a contract to obtain “fresh” tissue from aborted babies for experimentation.

    Arizona mulls evolution: Theory or settled science?

    Evolutionists in Arizona may have reason for concern after the state’s top education official suggested students should be taught the reality many scientists already acknowledge: Evolution is a theory, not settled science. Changes to the state’s science standards, which offer direction for teaching and curriculum choices, would remove references …

    New discovery sheds light on dark matter

    The recent discovery of a galaxy about 65 million light years away that appears to harbor no dark matter has flabbergasted astronomers who believe galaxies need dark matter to hold them together. “Finding a galaxy without any [dark matter] is completely unexpected; it challenges standard ideas of how galaxies work,” Allison Merritt said.

    Scientists struggle with Earth’s solid inner core

    If naturalistic theories are correct, Earth’s solid inner core shouldn’t exist, according to a new research paper in Earth and Planetary Science Letters journal. Current theory says Earth’s center consisted of a ball of hot liquid iron 4,200 miles wide until about a billion years ago when the molten metal spontaneously began to solidify.

    Dinosaur party or evidence of the flood?

    Scientists recently found fossil evidence that dinosaurs and mammals once frolicked together across land at what’s now the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. The discovery excited researchers because it represents, by far, the highest concentration of mammal tracks, as well as the largest mammal prints, ever discovered from the dinosaur age.

    SpaceX launch spurs reflections on ‘worthy venture’

    Two evangelical physicists are hopeful the most powerful rocket ever launched into space by a private company will lead humans to greater knowledge of God. “Sending rockets into space is simply part of being what God created humans to be,” said Bill Nettles, chairman of the physics department at Union University.

    Cloned monkeys spur warnings against human cloning

    The first-ever primates cloned through a technique that produced Dolly the sheep have been cited by Christian bioethicists as a potentially valuable development in animal research. But they warned that two monkeys engineered by Chinese researchers must not become a step toward cloning humans.

    Swimming bacteria defy Darwin

    Tiny biological motors that give bacteria the power to swim possess a complexity that baffles scientists and undercuts Darwin’s theory of evolution. A recent study in Scientific Reports claims the existence of the motors shows evolution produces inevitable and creative ideas, terminology that sounds more like the work of God than of natural selection.

    Scientists’ gender findings said to confirm Bible

    Scientists’ claim that a researcher’s sex can affect the outcome of experiments has been cited as corroboration of biblical teaching on gender. According to an article in Science Advances, volunteers for experiments as diverse as intelligence tests and pain sensitivity studies have been found to respond differently when they are dealing with a researcher of the opposite gender.

    Evolutionist retracts key study on origin of life

    A secular scientist who attempted to explain the origins of life has made a bold admission that bolsters arguments against Darwinian evolution. Jack Szostak of Harvard University published a 2016 paper in Nature Chemistry claiming he and his colleagues had figured out a way to get RNA to replicate itself.

    New surgery exposes ‘chink’ in pro-abortion armor

    Surgeons at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston recently performed an innovative new surgery on an unborn baby boy with spina bifida at 24 weeks of gestation. The doctors removed the mother’s uterus but left it attached internally and then operated on the child through tiny slits in the womb, The New York Times reported.

    Scientists poke holes in natural selection

    The Darwinian concept of natural selection seems pretty straightforward: The most fit survive and pass their genes to their offspring, while unfit organisms die off. But new research, published in the Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics, shows survival is a lot more complicated, and natural selection is neither clear-cut nor provable.

    Evolutionary scientist admits theory’s major flaws

    Gerd Müller, a highly regarded Austrian evolutionary theorist, recently gave a presentation in which he admitted Charles Darwin’s theory largely avoids explaining how life originated. Müller did not espouse any creationist or design beliefs, but his presentation demonstrated that even the staunchest advocates of evolution are forced to admit the theory has many holes.

    Christians more likely to oppose gene editing, Pew finds

    Christians are more likely than others to oppose embryonic gene editing to reduce the risk of disease in their babies, according to a Pew Research Center study conducted a year before the latest breakthrough in genetic engineering. Nearly two-thirds of respondents Pew described as “highly religious” would not want gene therapy for their babies.

    DNA editing, ethics & biblical truth

    Scientists have successfully edited the DNA of human embryos for the first time ever. But a Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary bioethicist says the research in question was unethical for its destruction of embryos and raises moral questions about genetic engineering. The embryos were purposefully created and destroyed following the experiment.
