We may be able to gain some insight and encouragement by looking at the chrysalis, the intermediate stage between the caterpillar and… Continue reading The Chrysalis
Do you know the difference between an alligator and a crocodile? There are a few differences. As a whole, alligators have shorter, broader snouts while crocodiles have snouts that range between long and skinny to short and broad.

I read an article recently by David Weintraub titled “How Will Our Religions Handle the Discovery of Alien Life?”i While it is tempting to delve right into that question and try to answer, “How would (or how should) Christians handle the discovery of alien life?”, I am going to do something different. I am going… Continue reading Alien Life?

Clearly, “scientific” is derived from “science,” and the latter can be defined as a process for testing and evaluating hypotheses through controlled experiments that can be verified or copied by others. To put it in really simple terms, something is scientific if it is testable and repeatable. While testability… Continue reading Scientific?
If the additive and subtractive colors actually describe how the mixing of colors work, how come treating red, yellow, and blue as primary colors also works? At some point, every one of us has tried mixing these colors, either as food colors, as paints, or some other way, and we were able to confirm that… Continue reading Colors III

Let us reconsider the pigment chlorophyll, which was used as an illustration of a pigment… Continue reading Colors Part II

Here is a photograph of a sea shell. My family picked it up at a beach in Galveston, Texas three years ago. It may look unspectacular. After all, it is broken. It appears to be heavily eroded, with parts of the shell missing and numerous holes pocketing its surface. However, there are actually many interesting… Continue reading Examining a Sea Shell
Readers who are familiar with creation science may have been able to put a phrase to the Ceratosaurus post. That phrase would be “historical science.” For those who are unfamiliar with the term, historical science refers to a science that examines things that have already taken place. Paleontology, for instance, studies creatures that are extinct.… Continue reading Historical Science
Ceratosaurus is one of the more common large, predatory dinosaurs. Fifty years ago, when all large theropods looked like each other, Ceratosaurus was the one with the horn on its nose, alongside Allosaurus, which was the large theropod with three fingers, and Tyrannosaurus, which was the largest theropod with two fingers. Today, the large theropods… Continue reading The Ceratosaurus
