Ben Carson Creationism Would Lead Back To A Violent Past

Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon who retired from medicine in order to take up a career as a right wing commentator on Fox News, only to retire from Fox News in order to become a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, likes to talk about “our Judeo-Christian values” as if everyone in America has “Judeo-Christian […]

Humble Ancestors?

If I asked you to think of an ancient relative of a human ancestor you probably would not picture something like the vetulicolians.

The vetulicolians had the basic body plan that you see here: A kind of segmented area attached to a flatter area to which had a kind of stiff rod running down […]

The Strange Animal With The Earliest Muscles

You’re a great big strong animal with muscles all over your body. Your ancestors weren’t always that way, however. They used to move using flagella, or sometimes, they just oozed.

A new study published today by a group of scientists from Oxford and Cambridge in the UK and St. John’s in Newfoundland describes the earliest […]

Redefining Sexual Versatility

Young, sexed up human beings might get some useful perspective on their struggles by considering the plight of Cloeon dipterum, a common species of mayfly that lives in the Northern Hemisphere.

Darwinian Legislation

The Darwin Day resolution withered and died without ever having the opportunity to conduct the equivalent of a mating ritual. […]

If God Works, How Come Mothers Only Have Two Hands?

I saw this sign yesterday while travelling through South Somerville, Maine. If this were a valid ding against the scientific theory of evolution — which doesn’t claim that evolutionary pressures create absolutely optimal biological design — then wouldn’t it also be a criticism of the religious theory of God — which does claim that its […]

Tirade By Congressman Paul Broun On Evolution Steps Beyond Arena Of A Religious Test

A politician who is willing to go to such extremes to promote the interests of one group of citizens over all others cannot be trusted with power. That’s why, whether they’re Christian or not, the residents of Paul Broun’s congressional district in Georgia would do well to vote him out of office on Election Day next month. […]

One Million Year Fires And Hot Shit

Apparently, piles of decomposing bat guano can become so hot that they light on fire all by themselves. […]
