"EVOLUTION IS ON THE WAY OUT" claims an article in the Education Guardian, 15 Aug 2006.. A survey of over a thousand UK students by Opinionpanel Research found "more than 30% believe our origins have more to do with God than with Darwin - evolution theory rang true for only 56%.. " Belief in creation and/or intelligent design was highest amongst students who identified themselves as Muslim or Christian, but even  ...   and teaching evolutionary biology for 20 years..

    Descriptive info: EVOLUTION FAILS IN BRITISH OPINION POLL.. EVOLUTION FAILS IN BRITISH OPINION POLL according to BBC online news, 26 Jan 2006.. In a recent survey of over 2,000 people in Britain just over half were sceptical of evolution.. The survey asked people what best described the origin and development of life.. The results were (as quoted in the BBC article):.. 22% chose creationism.. 17% opted for intelligent design.. 48% selected evolution theory.. and the rest (13%) did not know.. The survey also gave people a choice of three descriptions for the development of life on Earth, and asked which one or ones they would like to see taught in science lessons in British schools.. The results were:.. 44% said creationism should be included.. 41% intelligent design.. 69% wanted evolution as part of the science curriculum.. The survey was commissioned by the BBC, whilst making a documentary entitled "A War on Science" which looks at the Intelligent Design debate in US schools.. The documentary has recently been broadcast as part of the "Horizon" series on BBC TV.. Andrew Cohen, editor of Horizon,  ...   Society, said: "It is surprising that many should still be sceptical of Darwinian evolution.. Darwin proposed his theory nearly 150 years ago, and it is now supported by an immense weight of evidence.. ".. BBC article: http://news.. bbc.. uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4648598.. stm.. As one the world leading promoters of evolution, the BBC certainly would be surprised at these results.. The title of their documentary is part of an increasing trend in both the professional and lay literature to make the word "evolution" mean "science," and therefore label all challenges to the theory of evolution as challenges to science.. However, in spite of protestations that understanding evolution is essential for understanding life, evolution means little to most people, and deep down they know they are not just results of millions of chance random accidents and Darwin's "war of nature".. As Paul wrote in Romans 1:20, For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.. opinions, beliefs, sceptics)..

    Descriptive info: NEW TYPE OF DINO FEATHER FOUND.. NEW TYPE OF DINO FEATHER FOUND, according to reports in.. Science News.. 12 Jan 2009 and.. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.. , 20 Jan 2009, p832.. Chinese palaeontologists have found two fossils of an early Cretaceous dinosaur named.. Beipiaosaurus.. They describe their findings as: Here, we report a feather type in two specimens of the basal therizinosaur.. , in which each individual feather is represented by a single broad filament.. The filaments are between 10 and 15 cm (4 to 6 inches) long and 2mm wide (less than one tenth of an inch) and are attached to the head, neck and tail of the animal.. The fossils are dated at 120 million years old.. The scientists claim these are the first stage in the development of feathers and an early stage of the evolution of birds from dinosaurs and their finding supports the hypothesis that feathers evolved and initially diversified in nonavian theropods before the origin of birds and the evolution of flight.. The specimens add to an ever increasing collection of feathered dinosaurs found in China, but not all palaeontologists are impressed with dinosaur feather theory..  ...   the find.. If you didn t already believe dinosaurs were developing feathers you would not call 2mm wide unbranched filaments feathers.. Even though Alan Feduccia is an evolutionist we agree with Alan about the dino feather debate.. Some feathered dinosaurs have turned out to be flightless birds.. A good example is a creature name Caudipteryx.. When this was first claimed to be a dinosaur with feathers, Creation Research wrote an article pointing out that it looked more like a flightless bird.. Several years later evolutionary scientists agreed with us.. (Search for Evolutionists catch up with us ).. Feduccia has also critiqued filaments claimed to be feathers on fossils that definitely are dinosaurs.. After studying the microscopic structure of reptile skin and the effects of decomposition he claims fibrous impressions associated with some fossils are just collagen fibres from the skin.. He also reminds evolutionists that Archaeopteryx, which had fully formed bird feathers, is dated 25 million years prior to the earliest Cretaceous dinosaurs that are believed to have started evolving feathers before turning into birds..

    Descriptive info: NO EVOLUTION FOR ALGAE.. NO EVOLUTION FOR ALGAE, according to a report in.. Nature.. , vol 431, p566, 30 Sep 2004.. Sinead Collins and Graham Bell of McGill University believe that as atmospheric carbon dioxide will increase over the next century, and plants may adapt to the changing atmosphere.. Therefore such evolved plant communities of the next century are likely to be genetically different from contemporary communities.. To test this theory they grew Chlamydomonas , a single celled green alga in a high carbon dioxide atmosphere in order to see how plants would evolve.. However, they found after about 1,000 generations of selection for growth in high carbon dioxide conditions, the alga failed to evolve specific adaptations to a CO2 concentration of 1,050 parts per million.. Normal carbon dioxide is  ...   these cells had undergone mutations that decreased their ability to concentrate carbon dioxide inside the cell.. We are pleased the authors of this study did not claim the mutated algae were evolving.. They acknowledged that the unusual environment the algae were grown in compensated for loss of a normal function, but overall the plants were degenerate.. This experiment provides good evidence that plants either maintain or lose genetic information as they reproduce, but do not invent (evolve) any new genetic information no matter what selection pressure they are subjected to.. This is what you would.. predict.. on the basis of Genesis based Creation, i.. e.. plants were created as different unrelated kinds and some have degenerated as they reproduced in a world damaged by sin and judgement.. algae, plants, mutations)..

    Descriptive info: NUTCRACKER TEETH CHALLENGE EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION.. NUTCRACKER TEETH CHALLENGE EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION, according to an article in EurekAlert, 29 April 2008 and PLoS ONE 30 April 2008.. Nutcracker Man is the nickname given to.. Paranthropus boisei.. , an extinct ape-like creature, believed to be a relative of human ancestors.. The nickname came from its huge robust jaw, extensive area of jaw muscle attachment on the cranium and the biggest, flattest cheek teeth and the thickest enamel of any known hominin.. These findings led scientists to believe the creature lived on a diet of tough foods such as nuts, seeds, roots and tubers.. Peter Ungar, an anthropologist at J.. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, and colleagues have examined the patterns of wear and tear on teeth of.. P.. Bosei.. specimens and found a pattern more consistent with a diet of soft fruit.. According to EurekAlert, This finding suggests that structure alone is not enough to predict dietary preferences and that evolutionary adaptation for eating may have been based on scarcity rather than on an animal s regular diet.. This apparent paradox between an animal s teeth and jaws and its diet has been  ...   leaves unless they have to.. Ungar also commented that the Nutcracker Man study challenges the fundamental assumptions of why such specializations occur in nature..

    Descriptive info: PARALLEL EVOLUTION IN AUSSIE PLANTS.. PARALLEL EVOLUTION IN AUSSIE PLANTS reported in ScienceShots 5 June 2012 and ABC News in Science 6 June 2012.. Flowering plants attract pollinating insects with their bright colours and, according to ScienceShots: Scientists have even shown that, in the Northern Hemisphere, flowers' coloring patterns evolved specifically to meet the nuances of insect vision.. However, the same scientists also believe Australian plants have been geographically isolated for 34 million years, which they claim is before flowers evolved colour, so they cannot assume Australian plants have also evolved colour to suit insects.. A group of researchers have now studied 111 species of Australian flowers and compared the light reflected by the flowers with the spectrum of light that native bees are sensitive to.. This includes ultra-violet light as well as visible light.. Insects can see ultra violet light and many flowers that look very plain under white light only have distinctive patterns when viewed with both white and ultra-violet light.. The scientists concluded that Australian flowering plants have independently evolved to suit the photoreceptors of bees, just as the northern hemisphere plants have.. This is an example of parallel evolution across the two hemispheres.. According to Adrian Dyer, a vision researcher who led the study, all bees detect colour in a similar way and this proves the flowers evolved to suit the bees and not the other way around.. He explained: We know that bees' ability to detect colour links back to a common ancestor around 300-400 million years ago, and there's no evidence at all  ...   wrong layer since all the above stories assume they have all the fossil data.. We.. that fossil flowers containing traces of colouring material will be found in all the wrong strata, just as fossil pollen has been found in Precambrian layers and been almost totally ignored.. (See.. 210, 292 - 294 (16 April 1966); doi:10.. 1038/210292a0 Occurrence of Pollen and Spores in the Roraima Formation of Venezuela and British Guiana R.. M.. Stainforth Asociación Venezolana de Geología, Minería y Petróleo, Apartado 4400, Chacao, Estado Miranda, Venezuela.. ).. Second: it pays to remember that the presence in bees of green, blue and UV receptors will never in any way insert new genes into plants that cause them to firstly to produce flowers or force the production of colours and patterns.. The plants would die out long before they evolved such things.. Neither would evolving coloured flowers somehow ever produce new genes for photoreceptors in bees.. These evolutionist stories explain neither how flowers developed their colours, nor how the bees got their photoreceptors.. Third: you can find both negative and positive information about such claims only by obtaining an eye witness account on the origin of bees and flowers.. It is still a much more logical explanation that bees and flowers were created to complement one another as the eyewitness account from the actual Creator reveals in Genesis, and therefore plants had all the correct features from the beginning, and this is why they have survived in both the northern hemisphere and Australia.. pollination, insects, angiosperms, botany)..

    Descriptive info: PEOPLE TIRED OF CLIMATE CLAIMS.. PEOPLE TIRED OF CLIMATE CLAIMS, according to a report in BBC News, 10 Sept 2009.. Researchers at Cardiff University surveyed 551 people, from a range of ages and backgrounds, between September and November last year (2008) and revealed increasing scepticism about man-made climate change.. They found that compared with previous surveys twice as many people now agree that claims that human activities are changing the climate are exaggerated.. Forty percent of the people surveyed believed that many leading experts still question the evidence and twenty percent were "hard-line sceptics".. The most sceptical were more likely to be men rather than women, and rural rather than urban.. Scepticism was also higher in older people, higher earners and those on the conservative side of politics.. Half those surveyed believed the media was too alarmist and a third said there was too much conflicting evidence to know what is actually happening.. Lorraine Whitmarsh of Cardiff University announced the results at British Science Festival in Guildford and suggested that people were using the uncertainty as an excuse not to change their lifestyle.. She told BBC News: "It is difficult for people to perceive what is and  ...   biggest difference," and "We need to make it clear to people what is due to climate change and what is not.. It is time we made it real to people.. BBC:.. http://news.. uk/2/hi/science/nature/8249668.. If people did change the way they travel and eat it may benefit their health and better for the environment but it won t change the climate, and most people have enough common sense to know this.. We agree it is necessary to make clear what is real, because the reality is that climate change, both warming and cooling has been going on for thousands of years.. Environmental scientists should be careful what they teach people.. If they have been found to be teaching false claims people will lose their respect for ALL scientists as was indicated in a recent British press item entitled Met forecasts warm winter so get your woollies out now!

    Descriptive info: PITCHER PLANTS GO BATTY.. PITCHER PLANTS GO BATTY, as described in reports in.. Biology Letters.. 26 Jan 2011, doi: 10.. 1098/rsbl.. 2010.. 1141 and ScienceNOW 25 Jan 2011 and BBC Earth News 26 Jan 2011.. Pitcher plants are so named because they have elongated goblet shaped leaves that attract insects with aroma and visual patterns and then trap them in fluid in the base of the pitcher.. Because the plants get nutrients from digested insects they are able to grow in acid bogs that would not otherwise provide enough nutrients for the plants.. When studying pitcher plants in Borneo in the 1980s, ecologist Jonathan Moran noticed an unusual pitcher plant with long narrow pitchers that lacked aroma and patterns and caught fewer insects than other pitcher plants, but still grew well in the nutrient poor soils.. A group of biologists led by Ulmar Grafe of the University Brunei Darussalam have now followed up Moran s observation and discovered that the plant is used as roosting place by bats, and the plants feed on bat droppings.. The bats wedge themselves in the narrow mid section of the pitcher above the liquid in the bottom of the trap.. Mother bats with young will also settle down in the pitchers and suckle their young.. Following chemical analysis of the leaves the researchers concluded the plants get about one third of their nutrients from bat droppings and urine.. This plant is not the first pitcher plant shown to  ...   relationship.. A recent review article in the Annals of Botany, entitled.. Traps of carnivorous pitcher plants as a habitat: composition of the fluid, biodiversity and mutualistic activities.. gives the following background information: Carnivorous pitcher plants (CPPs) use cone-shaped leaves to trap animals for nutrient supply but are not able to kill all intruders of their traps.. Numerous species, ranging from bacteria to vertebrates, survive and propagate in the otherwise deadly traps.. (Ann Bot doi: 10.. 1093/aob/mcq238) The article also points out that not all pitcher plant fluid is toxic or contains sufficient digestive enzymes to kill all the insects that land in it, and the organisms that live in the pitchers dispose of the prey providing both them and the plant with nutrients.. The plant that digests leaf litter is.. Nepenthes ampullaria.. and it lives in rainforests where there is plenty of leaf litter to fall on it and provide it with nutrients.. Pitcher plants living in more open settings can t get enough nutrients from leaf litter.. Our.. prediction.. is based on the fact that God made everything very good with no death as Genesis reads, so the original function of pitcher plants would not have been to eat animals no matter where they grew.. These new research findings give this more support to the thesis that in a very good world "carnivorous" plants recycled leaf litter and animal droppings a very good function.. ecology, botany, food chain)..
