Nobel Prize Winner “Blinded by Belief”: Retracts 2016 Paper on RNA Self-Replication

In a 2016 paper published in Nature Chemistry, Nobel Laureate Jack W. Szostak (professor of chemistry and chemical biology at Harvard University in Cambridge) claimed to show how RNA could self-replicate under conditions that may have been present during the early Earth environment – leading to the evolution of the first forms of life. He originally wrote: “The non-enzymatic…

Newly Discovered Human Footprints Undermine Evolutionary Assumptions

Modern evolutionary scientists believe and teach that humans first evolved in Africa from ape-like ancestors. The chimp-like Australopithecus, thought to be among the earliest human ancestors, evolved some 4 million years ago. They had brains no bigger than a chimpanzee’s, and their hands and feet and semi-circular canals in their skulls were all most similar to tree-climbing chimps…
