Changing the way we look at the world
In this blog I focus on the design of creation, but may also include some stuff on bioethics and some general apologetics.  
Is Homo floresiensis is still living?

I have just read an opinion piece published on TheScientist website which has the title:  
“Opinion: Another Species of Hominin May Still Be Alive” click here to read it. 
This article discussed the possibility that Homo floresiensis is still living on the Indonesian island of Flores.

Tales about tails

I have been reading about some research which is claimed to provide a mechanism by which primates lost their tails (click here to read the paper). This is important for evolutionists who believe that our ancestors had tails.

Towards a creation model of dinosaur biogeography
I have not written much for this blog for a while and the reason is that I have been researching palaeobiogeography (the study of the geographic distribution of fossils). This is linked to the subject of my post about the break-up of the single continent (Pangaea) in the days of Peleg.

Metamorphosis in insects: a challenge to evolution 
Insects are fascinating creatures. Part of that fascination is the fact that many of them have a two-stage life; hatching from eggs as nymphs or larvae which then undergo a transformation to adults by the process of metamorphosis.

In The days of Peleg

In this blog post I want to have a look at Genesis 10v25: 
Two sons were born to Eber: One was named Peleg, because in his time the earth was divided. 
Peleg (the great-great grandson of Shem) was born in 2247 BC, about a hundred years after the flood.

In this final post on the subject of whales, I want to try and summarise my thoughts on whales and give a creationist view that is consistent with the evidence of design.

Life on Mars

This has been an exciting week for space geeks because NASA has successfully landed a new robot on Mars  

One of the stated aims is “searching for signs of past microbial life” in an ancient lakebed  
This is based on the belief that all it takes for life to appear is a rocky planet a bit like earth and water plus a few million years.

Transitional Fossils

I have been looking at the fossil Morganucodon which is believed to represent a transitional stage in the evolution of non-mammalian synapsids to mammals.



After a close look at the evidence I believe that the evidence is more consistent with the classification of Morganucodon as a mammal with a mammalian jaw joint and middle ear bones.

I wrote a paper about this for the Journal of Creation published by Creation Ministries International

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...
