Creationists claim to have done research showing eoliths are ancient artefacts that turn evolution on its head. In reality, their work is hopelessly flawed.
Human history goes back almost 10,000 years. Which might seem like a long time, but it’s nothing compared to our prehistory. That stretches back to the earliest known modern human, who lived ~195,000 years ago. We are an ancient species. So ancient that creationists seem to have difficulty comprehending just Read more…
In their efforts to criticise the evolutionary origins of fire use, intelligent designists have misrepresented the views of both palaeoanthropologists and other intelligent designists.
In the depths of Bruniquel Cave, France, lie an enigmatic series of circles. They are made from stalagmites, on which a residue accumulated since they were placed. Radiometric dating this coating revealed these circles predated the arrival of modern humans in France. Clearly, Neanderthals must have made them. I found Read more…
For at least 23 years Answers in Genesis has been reporting discoveries the Neanderthals weren’t dumb; along with quotes from scientists saying as such. Despite this, they’re still reporting on Neanderthal intelligence as controversial, with researchers begrudgingly “admitting” Answers in Genesis is right.
When creationist Dr Nathaniel Jeanson attempted to provide genetic evidence for a young earth, he was forced to come up with a mutation rate 35x greater than what has been measured and published! We look at how he came up with this number and analyse the series of flawed assumptions he makes about the data obtained from those studies.
A creationist claim DNA supports the Noah story, but it only does so because he uses the wrong figures and data to support his conclusions.
Creationists made some predictions about how many mutations could have happened in the last 6,000 years. They don’t match up with the actual number of mutations. This disconnect is explained away with miracles.
