    DNA and RNA molecules are the basis for all life on Earth, but they don't necessarily have to be the basis for all life everywhere, scientists have shown.
  • An Amazing Fossil Find

    2009 Scientists are baffled by the latest fossil find. It's an octopus they claim is 95 million years old. And, guess what? It looks just like a modern-day octopus – complete with eight legs, rows of suckers and even traces of ink. In all that time, it seems, the octopus hasn't evolved – not one tiny bit. What's rare about this find is that octopuses are almost all muscle and skin. When an octopus dies, it quickly decays and liquefies into the oozy slime from which evolutionary scientists claim life began. After just a few days, there's nothing left at...

    Evolutionists have used shared mistakes in ‘junk DNA’ as ‘proof’ that humans and chimps have a common ancestor. However, if the similar sequences are functional, which they are progressively proving to be, their argument evaporates...

    No more love for Lucy? Ryan Jaroncyk For over the last 30 years, the supposedly 3 . 2 Ma old Australopithecus afarensis specimen known as ‘Lucy’ has been boldly proclaimed as the ancestor of all humanity in magazines, television shows, books, newspapers and museums. However, Tel Aviv University anthropologists have published a study casting serious doubt on Lucy’s role as mankind’s ape ancestor.1 Based on a comparative analysis of jaw bones in living and extinct primates, researchers concluded that Lucy and members of her kind should be ‘placed as the beginning of the branch that evolved in parallel to ours.’...

    Nature News via Water in Biology ^ | March 13, 2009 | Philip Ball
    I have been meaning for some time to write about an interesting paper in JACS by Naoki Sugimoto’s group in Kobe. It found its way into an article that I wrote this week for Nature’s online news. So I’ve decided to simply post this article here – it’s not all strictly relevant to water in biology, but hopefully is interesting stuff anyway. This is the version before editing, which has more detail. Shape might be one of the key factors in the function of mysterious ‘non-coding’ DNA. Everyone knows what DNA looks like. Its double helix decorates countless articles on...
