Peoples is Peoples…and Apes is Apes

From KHouse.Org There were once a much wider variety of human beings on this planet than there are now, according to new genetic analyses of Neanderthals in Europe and Denisovans in East Asia. Modern humans once interbred with these other groups, apparently sharing genetic material that includes the ability to fight off certain diseases. Yet, not all creatures designated as "hominids" are related to humans. In 2008, a piece of bone and Continue Reading

No patenting human embyros

From KHouse.Org "To become an embryo, you had to build yourself from a single cell. You had to respire before you had lungs, digest before you had a gut, build bones when you were pulpy, and form orderly arrays of neurons before you knew how to think. One of the critical differences between you and a machine is that a machine is never required to function until after it is built. Every animal has to function as it builds itself." –Scott Continue Reading

Young Islands, Canyons, and Dinasaurs

From KHouse.Org According to most respected geologists, the Earth is 4.7 billion years old, give or take a few days. Suggesting that the Earth is much younger can raise the ire of even the most chipper, likeable geology professor. Yet, there is evidence that geological processes can take place in a much shorter time span than historical geologists tend to assume, and odd things have been found out of place – in the wrong time and the wrong Continue Reading

The DNA mixing of Mice and Men…and Goats

From KHouse.Org "Gee, what do you wanna do tonight, Brain?" "Same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world." Researchers in China have made news by mixing the stem cells of humans with goats in the name of medical research, and they're not the only ones playing with DNA like modeling clay. A wide variety of miniature genetic hybrids have been created in the laboratory for experimentation purposes. While scientists Continue Reading

The Grand Canyon Formation – Alternative Theories

From KHouse.Org The Grand Canyon is a geological wonder, a vast chasm stretching 277 miles west to east through northern Arizona. The canyon offers one of the best geological cross sections in the world, with nearly 30 distinct layers found from the bottom to the top; its mesas, buttes, colorful slopes and spires illustrate the geological story of the great American southwest. School children are fed a simple tale about how the canyon was Continue Reading

(Un)Natural: The Ethics Of Transgenics

From KHouse.Org (Un)Natural: The Ethics Of Transgenics by Steve Elwart, Senior Analyst Koinonia Institute And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw Continue Reading

The Battle For Adam And Eve – Christians Debate Evolutionary Theory

From Christian Post.Com Answers in Genesis President/CEO Ken Ham is siding with the atheists for once, he says. Disturbed by a recent cover story investigating the need to believe in a literal Adam and Eve, Ham, who endorses a literal view of Genesis, criticized several Christian theologians for rejecting both a literal interpretation of the first couple and existence of a young Earth. The story, entitled “The Search for the Historical Continue Reading

Scientific discovery that changes our notions of life here and elsewhere

From American Thinker.Com June 2, 2011 Rick Moran We usually don't cover a lot of science on this site. Not that it isn't important; it's just that we are a current events/political site and science stories rarely rise to the level needed to make it on the page. This story is different. Scientists have been finding microscopic life miles below the surface for decades. But what they never expected to find - and indeed, Continue Reading

Heidelberg Man ‘Ceprano’ Demonstrates that ‘Peoples is Peoples’

From KHouse.Org HEIDELBERG MAN 'CEPRANO' DEMONSTRATES THAT 'PEOPLES IS PEOPLES' An older member of the Heidelberg Man family may have related to both Neanderthals and modern Homo sapiens, according to a recent study in the journal for the Public Library of Science. The skull cap of a man known as "Ceprano", found near Rome in1994, has been determined to be a member of Homo heidelbergensis rather than a separate species. According to Continue Reading

Human Origins: Apes or Adam?

From KHouse.Org HUMAN ORIGINS: APES OR ADAM? Thirty years ago, paleoanthropologists Donald C. Johanson and Richard Leakey got into a heated quarrel - on television - over human origins at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Johanson had discovered the famous australopithecine Lucy, and he contended that Lucy represented a human ancestor. Leakey, who grew up on fossil digs in Africa and whose team discovered Turkana Boy Continue Reading
