Earwig wing design awes engineers

Science | Nothing made by humans folds and unfolds as well

Mechanical engineers at ETH Zurich and Purdue University are trying to mimic God’s design of the wing folds of the humble earwig, a folding structure superior to anything made by humans.

The rigid, straight folds of paper origami can stretch and break, but the earwig’s elastic wing folds are flexible and self-folding. Rather than lacking stability, they lock into specific shapes, allowing the wings to both extend and rotate.

A chapter a day to counter theistic evolution

Books | Demonstrating why Christians cannot worship both God and current scientific dogma

Theistic Evolution: A Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Critique is a 962-page destruction of the well-funded BioLogos campaign to sell macroevolution to Christians. Thoughtful chapters by scholars and scientists show that neo-Darwinism fails scientifically, with neither the fossil record nor genetics undermining the first two chapters of Genesis. Transitional ape-to-human fossils remain conspicuous by their absence, and humans and chimpanzees are not similar at the genetic level. We cannot worship both God and current science dogma.

If naturalistic theories are correct, Earth’s solid inner core shouldn’t exist, according to a new research paper in Earth and Planetary Science Letters

Current theory says Earth’s center consisted of a ball of hot liquid iron 4,200 miles wide until about a billion years ago when the molten metal spontaneously began to solidify. Now, Case Western Reserve University planetary scientists say spontaneous solidification of the core is scientifically impossible.
