Hoping to reduce the negative effects of a warming environment on humans and animals, scientists are studying Arabian and Asian camels.

Creationism and Evolution… and Environmentalism

Earlier this week Bill Nye, the famous Science Guy, and Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis debated evolution and creationism at the Kentucky Creation Museum. During the debate each presented evidence for their claim that creationism is, or is not, a viable scientific theory. Yes, that means that Mr. Ham actually presented evidence that the world is […]
