  • Thu, 14 Feb 2019 08:00:00 +0000: "Ancient" Fossil Still Has Hagfish Slime Residue - Science Update from ICR


    Hagfish look creepy. They can act creepy, too. Having no bones, they tie themselves into sliding figure eight knots that help them tear mouthfuls of flesh from the seafloor carcasses on which they feed. And don’t squeeze one unless you want an armload of instantly-expanding slime. Unique slime glands positioned along the sides of their long, slender bodies eject slime-making proteins that fill the gills of would-be predators. A newly ... More...

  • Thu, 07 Feb 2019 08:00:00 +0000: Meteorite Impact Observed During Lunar Eclipse - Science Update from ICR


    On January 21, 2019, during a total lunar eclipse, astronomers and amateur stargazers alike saw a small meteorite strike the lunar surface.1 The collision was seen as a flash of light just before midnight Eastern Time. The darkened surface of the moon during the eclipse made the flash much easier to see. Although scientists have observed and recorded other meteorite strikes on the lunar surface, this is apparently the first time ... More...

  • Tue, 05 Feb 2019 08:00:00 +0000: Revealing Our Fossil Wall - Science Update from ICR


    It was an exciting week here at ICR as we watched workers carefully mount nine fossil replicas to the Discovery Center’s exterior wall. Each 12ˈ×12ˈ panel weighs 3,500 pounds! Two of them are based on fossils in ICR’s collection. Artisans carved the replicas out of modeling clay and cast them in concrete.



    The sequence from left to right reflects the relative order these creatures were buried in the fossil reco... More...

    Jeffrey P. Tomkins, Ph.D. and Timothy L. Clarey, Ph.D.



    Red algae form one of the main components of coral reefs and were originally thought to have appeared on Earth during the middle of the Cretaceous system about 100 million years ago. At least that’s what the standard evolutionary story claimed until the same type of fossils were just discovered in Silurian system roc... More...

  • Tue, 29 Jan 2019 08:00:00 +0000: Yeast Introns Not Junk After All - Science Update from ICR


    The junk DNA paradigm has proven to be an ill-founded icon of evolution. We’ve witnessed its pet sub-theories systematically debunked as we learn more and more about how creatures’ DNA systems work. And now one of the pet darlings of junk DNA speculation, the alleged useless nature of introns (intervening noncoding pieces of genes), has also been tossed in the evolutionary trash heap.
