Immediately after the Big Bang when there was only very hot energy, there was an Inflationary Period caused by… Continue reading Is Cosmology Science?
The Redshift Trap Shortly after stars were first seen in galaxies, confirming that they are outside our galaxy, Edwin Hubble and others in 1929 discovered that the redshift of light from nearby galaxies was proportional to the distance as calculated from apparent brightness of Cepheid variable stars within the galaxies. This is called Hubble’s Law… Continue reading Did Hubble discover the Big Bang?

He believed that inheritance was through "Gemmules" that each cell shed and that traveled to the gametes (sperm and egg). Since each cell "voted" it was called pangenesis. He believed that the life experiences of… Continue reading Darwin’s Problem with Ants
