In this blog I focus on the design of creation, but may also include some stuff on bioethics and some general apologetics.

When I was studying biology at university there was no evidence for the evolution of whales, but things have changed a lot since then.  But have they?  Just how good is the evidence?


The origin of life

In this blog post I want to review an article recently posted by Science Daily about the origin of life. 
The sub-title is: 
An experiment in recreating primordial proteins solves a long-standing riddle”. Click here for the paper.
The riddle is the origin of positively charged amino acids, like arginine and lysine, which are part of almost all proteins found in living things. 
But before looking at the solution to this problem, consider the whole notion of primordial proteins arising spontaneously in a primordial soup...


Is evolution really happening?

This is a blog post about an article on the website of the BBC (British Broadcasting Company) with the title:
 How do we know that evolution is really happening?

We are told that:

“The idea that species gradually change over many generations is the cornerstone of biology.

I don’t think anyone would disagree with the first part of that statement....
