* Journal Nature: Past 5,000 years prolific for changes to human genome: Real Science Radio's Bob Enyart and Fred Williams enjoy talking about what evolutionary geneticists have now admitted, that the human genome experienced the vast majority of its diversity in just the last 5,000 years, a time frame that fits well into the biblical chronology.
* Journal Nature: Dating features on the moon and Mars is guesswork: That's in space. But how about here on Earth? According to Nature, "Radiometric dates are some of the trickiest, most delicate and most disputed measurements on Earth."
* Leech Cocoon Helps Confirm a Young Earth: An allegedly 200-million year-old rock contains a leech cocoon, which preserves a protozoan which looks exactly like an extant species.
* The Perversion of Homosexuality Harms their Kids (of course): Mark Regnerus, of the University of Texas at Austin, after studying 3,000 American adults 18 to 39 published in a peer-reviewed social science journal his finding that those raised by homosexual parents had poorer mental and physical health, lower income levels, and more troubled personal relationships than those raised by intact heterosexual families. "This data overturns conventional wisdom," said Regnerus.
* After 500 Dinosaurs went POOF, the Remaining Ones Lost Weight: Not only did paleontologists overcount the number of dinosaur species by at least double, as reported in the journal Biology Letters in October 2012, they also greatly overestimated the weight of dinosaurs. Instead of Brachiosaurus weighing 80 tons, for example, it is now carefully calculated that it would have weighed about 23 tons. Reducing the numbers and weight of dinosaur kinds also reduces the demand on Noah's ark (and family)!
* March 2013 Update: Reducing the numbers and weight of dinosaur kinds also reduces the demand on Noah's ark (and family)! And see famed paleontologist Jack Horner, who we at RSR offered a grant of $23,000 to carbon date one of his soft-tissue T. rex bones:
* Our 2013 RSR "LIST" Shows: Starting with last month's List of Not So Old Things, through to our November List of the Fine Tuning of the Universe, we're looking forward to continuing our tradition of annual shows, including:
January: List of Not So Old Things
March: List of Evidence Against the Big Bang
May: List of Peer-reviewed Dino Soft Tissue Papers
July: List of Genomes that Just Don't Fit
Sept: List of Scholars Doubting Darwinism and the Big Bang
Nov: List of the Fine Tuning of Creation
Another? If you have a suggestion for another RSR LIST show, please forward it to Bob@RealScienceRadio.com. Thanks!
