ANSWER TO QUESTION WHY DOES 2 PETER 3:8 READ
ANSWER TO QUESTION WHY DOES 2 PETER 3:8 READ ".. one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." Why doesn't it read "To the Lord a day is like a million years, and a million years is like a day."? Peter was familiar with the Old Testament which includes the concept of millions in the writings of Moses. 2 Peter 3:8 is actually based on Psalm 90:4 written by Moses. Many people told us that Moses didn't mention millions at all. Moses did use the concept of millio...   Click here for more...

ANSWER TO WHY
ANSWER TO WHY do they call it limestone when it's not even green... Thanks to all who attempted to answer this eight year old student's question which really had us stumped. Here's what we discovered lime meaning green entered the English language from the Arabic - probably through Crusaders, etc. Limestone - the grey stone made of calcium carbonate that is crushed and heated to produce the powder Anglo-Saxons mixed with loam to make mortar was originally called "Loamstone". You've guessed it - ...   Click here for more...

ANSWERS IN BRIEF ABOUT SPIDER WEBS, POISONS AND BOMBADIER BEETLES ETC
ANSWERS IN BRIEF ABOUT SPIDER WEBS, POISONS AND BOMBADIER BEETLES ETC. (a) Spider webs were and are for catching "water vapour" which is what many still do with them and is one reason that many of them "eat their web". The fly catching bit came much later as environs degenerated. (b) "Poisons" are only dangerous in the wrong place - any protein enzymes or organic acids that dissolve cellulose are great for a creature that needs to make a hole in a tree to lay eggs, but a disaster when inje...   Click here for more...

ANT AEROBATICS
ANT AEROBATICS described in news@nature, 9 Feb 2005 and Nature, vol 433, p624, 10 Feb 2005. Ants that live high in the tree tops of Brazilian rainforest are able to steer themselves through the air if they fall or are dislodged from a branch. Stephen Yanoviak first observed this when he brushed off some ants that attacked him when he was climbing a tree. He noticed that the ants "made a nice J-shaped curve back to the tree". He and some colleagues then made videos of falling ant...   Click here for more...

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IS ANCIENT

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE IS ANCIENT, according to articles in Nature doi:10.1038/nature10388 and ScienceNOW 31 August 2011, and ABC News in Science 1 September 2011. Antibiotic resistant bacteria are often presented as evidence for evolution, especially as some of the tougher hospital “superbugs” are resistant to modern day man-made antibiotics. A group of Canadian researchers have analysed bacterial DNA from samples obtained from deeply buried frozen soil, dated at 30,000 years, from the...   Click here for more...

ANTICREATIONIST PLIMER

ANTICREATIONIST PLIMER might be right about cosmic rays and climate. In his book, Heaven and Earth geologist Ian Plimer claims that climate change is caused by natural processes, such as amount of cosmic rays entering the atmosphere, which in turn is influenced by changes in the sun. In an interview on an ABC programme Counterpoint, 27 April 2009 Plimer stated: “There's a very tight correlation between solar activity and climate. That correlation is in cycles. ...

APE MAN BRAIN DRAIN
APE MAN BRAIN DRAIN indicated as a new way of calculating the brain size of fossil skulls is reported in Science News Vol 153, p374. It has given a much lower value for Australopithecus africanus, an extinct group of apes similar to Lucy. Previous estimates for Australopithecine brain size were around 600mls. The new study gave 515mls, far below the human average brain size of 1400mls. Glenn Conroy of Washington University School of Medicine used the new technique of computerised imaging process...   Click here for more...

APPENDIX NOT USELESS

APPENDIX NOT USELESS, according to a news release from Duke University, 8 Oct 2007. William Parker and Randal Bollinger of Duke University Medical Centre have been studying the way bacteria interact with the large bowel, where large numbers of useful bacteria live and help with normal digestive processes and help keep out harmful bacteria. They found that useful bacteria live in aggregates called biofilms, which also contain immune system molecules and secretions from the bowel. If the bowe...   Click here for more...

ARCHAEOPTERYX HAD BIRD EARS
ARCHAEOPTERYX HAD BIRD EARS, according to articles in BBC News and ScienceDaily, 14 Jan 2009. A team of palaeontologists and biologists have been using CT scans to examine the inner ear structure of 59 bird and reptile species including a barn owl, emu, green turtle, and alligator. The length of the inner ear canal is a good indicator of how well the creature can hear and of its vocal ability. They used the technique to examine the inner ear of Archaeopteryx and found it had an inner ear similar...   Click here for more...
