The 11 pieces of amber were found in coal-rich strata at Grassy Lake, Alberta, Canada and are dated as 78 to 79 million years old. Some of the preserved feathers have the specialised fe...   Click here for more...

AMERICANS FLOCK TO KEN HAM'S HI-TECH CREATION MUSEUM

AMERICANS FLOCK TO KEN HAM'S HI-TECH CREATION MUSEUM where man and dinosaurs frolic happily together reports UK newspaper 19 August 2007 which wrote: “But wait at least one second before dismissing Ham as a crackpot. For starters, his is about the slickest museum you are ever likely to visit. It has an interactive cinema that tells the creation story according to Genesis, with wind gusts in the auditorium, vibrating seats and squirts of water, as well as a state-of-the-art planetarium. Its ...   Click here for more...

AN 'EXPELLED' WELCOME
AN 'EXPELLED' WELCOME to this e-news as the Movie of that name, was released in US theatres last week, so we went to see the Chicago screening. We can understand why Atheist Darwinist Richard Dawkins has been loudly mouthing his criticism. The movie is worth seeing even if only for the last 5 mins where Dawkins expounds about earth life possibly being designed by a race of very intelligent beings who must have naturalistically evolved sometime previously. He may as well have just loaded his foot...   Click here for more...

AN ARGENTINE PALAEONTOLOGIST
AN ARGENTINE PALAEONTOLOGIST claims to have unearthed remains of the world's largest dinosaur. Jorge Calvo said he had found vertebrae of a giant sauropoda, a type of herbivore, in Río Negro province, 750 miles south-west of Buenos Aires, that weighed 90-100 tonnes, stood about 52ft tall and was about 130ft long. Until yesterday, the internationally recognised largest dinosaur was the herbivorous Argentinosaurus, also discovered in Argentina's Patagonia region. Weighing an estimated 80-100 tonne...   Click here for more...

AN IDIOTIC EYE

AN IDIOTIC EYE: Richard Dawkins asserts the vertebrate eye is particularly badly designed. He first condemns the eye for only having clear vision in the fovea (the central region of the total visual field for each eye), and therefore we need to constantly move the eyes and use image processing software in the brain to see a whole scene clearly. He then directs his attention to the retina – the light sensitive layer at the back of the eye that converts light into electrical signals and sends t...   Click here for more...

ANCESTRAL FOSSIL SNAKE FOUND
ANCESTRAL FOSSIL SNAKE FOUND, according a report in ABC (Australia) News in Science, and Nature, 16 Feb 2006. Palaeontologists at the Riversleigh fossil site in Queensland, Australia have found two snake skulls of an extinct snake named "Yurlunggur" preserved in "soft freshwater limestone" dated at 20 to 25 million years old. "Yurlunggur" is an Arnhem Land Aboriginal term for "rainbow serpent" (a mythical dreamtime creature believed by tribal aborigines to have a role in creation). Snake skul...   Click here for more...

ANCIENT CAVE BUGS RESIST ANTIBIOTICS

ANCIENT CAVE BUGS RESIST ANTIBIOTICS, according to a report in National Geographic News and ScienceDaily 11 April 2012, and PLoS ONE, 2012; 7 (4): e34953 DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0034953. Scientists exploring the Lechuguilla cave, a vast deep cave in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico, have found bacteria they believed to have been isolated for four million years. The cave was discovered in 1986 and entry to it has been strictly limited. In 2008 the National Park authorities allowe...   Click here for more...

ANCIENT FARMERS GREW MODERN MAIZE
ANCIENT FARMERS GREW MODERN MAIZE, according to reports in New Scientist, 22 Nov 2003, p21 and Science vol 302, p1206, 14 Nov 2003. Cultivated maize (corn on the cob) is believed to be derived from a wild plant named teosinte. Teosinte is a branched plant with small kernels that are not very nutritious to humans. Modern cultivated maize has genes that make the plants less branched, produce nutritious proteins and yields good quality flour. A group of scientists have recently analysed the genes o...   Click here for more...

ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP SAYS
ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP SAYS stop teaching creationism reports the Guardian, Tuesday March 21, 2006. "The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, has stepped into the controversy between religious fundamentalists and scientists by saying that he does not believe that creationism - the Bible-based account of the origins of the world - should be taught in schools. Giving his first, wide-ranging, interview at Lambeth Palace, the archbishop was emphatic in his criticism of creationism being taught in ...   Click here for more...

ANGLICAN BISHOPS DIVIDE OVER CREATION BASED DOCTRINE
ANGLICAN BISHOPS DIVIDE OVER CREATION BASED DOCTRINE re sex and "false gospel" according to a report in BBC News Online, 1 July 2008. A recent conference of conservative Anglicans, including 291 bishops, plans to set up a council of bishops "to help restore order to what it has called the 'chaos' over the last five years within the worldwide Anglican church." A major cause of the ‘chaos’ is the debate over the ordination of homosexuals, and especially the appointment of a homosexual bishop in Ne...   Click here for more...

ANGLICAN CLERGY CHALLENGE SEX-CHANGE MARRIAGES
ANGLICAN CLERGY CHALLENGE SEX-CHANGE MARRIAGES, as reported in BBC online news 29 Feb 2004. A new law in Britain enables transsexuals to marry and obligates all marriage registrars to accept their applications for marriage. In England all Anglican clergy are legal marriage registrars. The law does allow clergy to refuse to carry out such ceremonies themselves on the basis of conscience, but does not prevent their church buildings being used by others for this purpose. Some Anglican clergy are ob...   Click here for more...

ANGLICANS, BUT NOT CATHOLICS, APOLOGISE TO DARWIN
ANGLICANS, BUT NOT CATHOLICS, APOLOGISE TO DARWIN, according to articles on the Church of England website and Reuters 16 September 2008. Rev Dr Malcolm Brown, Director of Mission and Public Affairs for the Church of England, says the Church owes Charles Darwin an apology for misunderstanding him and attacking him in the 1860s. In an article entitled “Good Religion Needs Good Science” Brown writes: “Charles Darwin: 200 years from your birth, the Church of England owes you an apology for misunders...   Click here for more...

ANGOLAN GIANT FOUND

ANGOLAN GIANT FOUND, according to articles in PhysOrg and Annals of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences vol 83, p221 16 March 2011. An international team of palaeontologists have studied the bones of the first dinosaur to be found in Angola. Octavio Mateus of Portugal's Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Museum of Lourinha found the fossil in 2005. The bones are a partial right forelimb including the scapula, humerus, ulna, radius and metacarpals (toe bones) of a sauropod. Sauropods were a group o...   Click here for more...

ANIMAL HUMAN EMBRYO RESEARCH GETS APPROVAL

ANIMAL HUMAN EMBRYO RESEARCH GETS APPROVAL, according to reports BBC News Online, news@nature and ScienceNOW. The Human Fertilisation and Embryology authority in the UK have approved research using embryos created by mixing human and animal cells. The technique involves removing the nucleus of an egg cell from an animal, such as a cow or a rabbit, and inserting the nucleus of human cell. The resulting cell is called a “cybrid” rather than a hybrid, because it has a human nucleus and animal cy...   Click here for more...

ANOTHER CELL PROOFREADER FOUND
ANOTHER CELL PROOFREADER FOUND, according to a report in EurekAlert, 7th Jan 2009. Scientists at Johns Hopkins University have found another quality control step in the process of making proteins from instructions encoded in DNA. Proteins are long strings of amino acids which are folded into complex three dimensional shapes. The shape of the protein must be exactly right if it is to carry out its function. To make a protein, the information from DNA is copied onto another molecule named RNA. The...   Click here for more...

ANOTHER DINOSAUR FLOOD CATASTROPHE

ANOTHER DINOSAUR FLOOD CATASTROPHE, according to an article in the Canadian Globe and Mail 17 June 2010. Scientists in Alberta Canada have found an enormous bone bed containing thousands of horned dinosaurs and concluded the animals were wiped out by a catastrophic tropical storm-flood scenario. The bone bed is near Hilda, 50 km north of Medicine Hat and covers an area of 2.3 square kilometres (0.9 square miles), making it the largest dinosaur bone bed documented so far. David Eberth, a senio...   Click here for more...

ANOTHER FEATHERED DINOSAUR,

ANOTHER "FEATHERED DINOSAUR," claim by Chinese and American palaeontologists in Nature Vol 410, p1084, 26 Apr 2001. The fossil bones of a dromaeosaur (small theropod dinosaur) surrounded by impressions of fine fibres. Although they use the term "feathered dinosaur" in the title of their report, the authors describe the impressions in the paper much more carefully; as "filamentous feather-like structures" consisting of tightly packed bunches of fine fibres. Because of recent controversy over t...   Click here for more...

ANOTHER FLOOD DINO FOUND IN CANADA

ANOTHER FLOOD DINO FOUND IN CANADA reported in Reuters (Canada) and Fort McMurray Today 25 Mar 2011. Mine workers at an oil sand mine near Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada have found the fossil of an Ankylosaur, a rare land dwelling armour plated dinosaur. The fossil was discovered when a machine operator noticed an odd texture and diamond patterns in the rock he was digging. Palaeontologists from the Royal Tyrell Museum, a dinosaur museum in Alberta, have confirmed that it is a fossil dinosaur...   Click here for more...

ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS SYNTHETIC LIFE
ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS SYNTHETIC LIFE reported in BBC News Online and Science Online DOI: 10.1126/science.1151721 24 Jan 2008. A team of scientists in the USA have taken another step towards making organisms with redesigned genomes. The scientists set out to make an artificial version of the genome of a bacterium named "Mycoplasma gentitalium". This bacterium was chosen because it has the smallest known genome for a free living organism. The scientists started with small lengths of DNA which had b...   Click here for more...

ANSWER TO ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE
ANSWER TO ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE may involve "blinding" a protein named BlaR1 according to New Scientist, 17 Mar 2001, p19. Resistant strains of Staphylococus aureus, a notoriously nasty bacterium otherwise known as golden staph, are able to deactivate antibiotics with an enzyme that breaks them up, but they don’t make the enzyme all the time, only when antibiotics are around. In the absence of antibiotics a protein named BlaI turns off the gene that makes the enzyme. Another protein named BlaR1 ...   Click here for more...
