Gigantische zonnevlam in beeld vastgelegd
In 2014 was de zon erg actief. NASA legde dit vast op beeld, en toonde hoe spectaculair en mooi de zonneactiviteit was: Dit artikel is met toestemming overgenomen van de website van Weet Magazine.

Wiskunde en wiskundigen in de natuurkunde
Natuurkunde was in de oudheid geen aparte bezigheid, dat viel nl. onder het predicaat ‘natuurlijke filosofie’, en ook nu is er in de VS nog een groep die zich bezig houdt met hoofdzakelijk de nieuwe natuurkunde en die zich noemt ‘Natural Philosophy Alliance’. Wiskunde was de koningin van de wetenschappen. Dus als we iets zinnigs... Read more »The post Wiskunde en wiskundigen in de natuurkunde appeared first on Logos Instituut.

Genesis: Paradise Lost
Het heeft Sevenfold Films en Creation Today (in samenwerking met Resurrection Pictures en Kingdomworks Studios) zeven jaar gekost, maar eindelijk was het vorige week zover. Een bijzondere film ging in de VS in première over de eerste hoofdstukken van de Bijbel. In ‘Genesis Paradise Lost’ is m.b.v. geavanceerde 3D computeranimaties de Scheppingsgeschiedenis op een levensechte... Read more »The post Genesis: Paradise Lost appeared first on Logos Instituut.

Extinct Trees Were World's Most Complicated
Devonian fossils supposedly hail from a time long before modern oak trees evolved. The Darwinian concept of plants and animals gradually gaining complexity over eons of natural selection paints a picture of simple-to-complex development. But a newly discovered tree fossil from northwest China seems to tell just the opposite tale—that the growth structures in the world’s earliest trees were more complicated than in today’s trees. More...

Causaal evolutieonderzoek
Het causale evolutieonderzoek heeft een onoverbrugbaar bewijsprobleem: Zij moet op basis van proefondervindelijke wetten (beschrijving van berekenbare en voorspelbare gebeurtenissen) een volgens haar eigen theorie toevallige ontwikkeling bewijzen. De beweerde lange tijdsperioden (waarin macro-evolutionaire ontwikkelingen zouden hebben plaatsgevonden) en inhoudsloze uitspraken (zoiets als, dat de evolutie “gericht”, maar niet “doelgericht” verloopt), beschermen de theorie voor...

A Rugged Fitness LandscapeA new study from Michael Harms’ laboratory at the University of Oregon finds that potential amino acid substitutions in protein sequences are highly coupled. That is, if one residue mutates to a new amino acid, the swap impacts the other possible substitutions—they now have a different impact on the protein tertiary structure. As the paper explains:Proteins exist as ensembles of similar conformations. The effect of a mutation depends on the relative probabilities of conformations in the ensemble, which in turn, depend on the exact amino acid sequence of the protein. Accumulating substitutions alter the relative probabilities of...

Evolutionists Say “We See”A recent paper out of Brant Weinstein’s and William Jeffery’s laboratories on eye development, or the lack thereof, in blind cave fish has important implications for evolutionary theory (paper discussed here). The study finds that the loss of eyes in fish living in dark Mexican caves is not due to genetic mutations, as evolutionists have vigorously argued for many years, but due to genetic regulation. Specifically, methylation of key development genes represses their expression and with it eye development in this venerable icon of evolution. But the finding is causing yet more problems for evolutionary theory.Darwin appealed...

Makes Perfect SenseWe have often discussed the problem of “early complexity,” and how as we peer back in time—whether in the geographic strata or by phylogenetic reconstruct—things don’t get simpler. This makes no sense on evolution and this week’s news of a fossil specimen in northwest China, revealing and ancient, and highly complex, tree, just makes it worse. As one of the authors admitted:This raises a provoking question: why are the very oldest trees the most complicated?Fortunately evolution is a fact.

ExpelledSometimes it’s obvious, as in the case of the scientific research paper that was rejected after it was accepted. While the paper was well accepted and given positive comments from peer reviewers, certain members of the editorial board of a seemingly scientific journal noticed that the results had negative implications for evolution. And so months after the editor had told the authors he was happy “to proceed with publication,” the paper suddenly was, “on further reflection and discussion,” summarily rejected.And what exactly was the “discussion” about? That “the unspoken implication of the article is that, probabilistically, random undirected evolution is...

An ancient stone toilet recently unearthed at Lachish may provide archaeological evidence of King Hezekiah’s religious reforms throughout Judah in the eighth century B.C.E. The toilet had been placed in what is interpreted to be a gate-shrine within the largest ancient city gate found in Israel.
