Something Magic About Three

Something “magic” about three, claims physicist, according to reports in Science Daily, and Nature, vol. 440, p289 and 315, 15 Mar 2006. A team of scientists led by Cheng Chin of University of Chicago have converted three ultra-cold caesium atoms into a new state of matter that was originally theorised to exist by a Russian […]

Rainbow Physics Revealed

Rainbow physics revealed, according to a report in e! Science News, 7 December 2011 and ScienceShots 12 December 2011. The colours of the rainbow are the result of light being both refracted and reflected within drops of water. This has been known for hundreds of years, ever since Isaac Newton and Rene Descartes carried out […]

Radioactive Dates in NZ

Radioactive dates in the Chinese mandarin language was a New Zealand first. We needed ‘Dennis’ to translate Creation Research evidence into Mandarin for the bulk of the people who joined us on the Field Trip to the volcanic islands of Rangitoto and Mototapu. Rangi and Moto provide a unique insight into the fallacies of radioactive […]

Quote: Tryon on Creation Ex Nihilo

‘In 1973, I proposed that our Universe had been created spontaneously from nothing (ex nihilo), as a result of established principles of physics. The novelty of a scientific theory of creation ex nihilo is readily apparent, for science has long taught us that one cannot make something from nothing.’ E.P. Tryon (Professor of Physics, City […]

Quantum Physics for Plants

Quantum physics for plants, reported in Nature, and Biology News Net 12 April 2007. Plants are able to extract energy from sunlight with almost 100% efficiency because the transfer of light energy into the reaction centres that begin the process of photosynthesis happens almost instantaneously. The transfer process has been a mystery, but researchers at […]

Loose Cable May Explain Speedy Neutrinos

Loose cable may explain speedy neutrinos, according to an article in Science vol. 335 p1027 2 March 2012, DOI: 10.1126/science.335.6072.1027. In December 2011 physicists at CERN in Switzerland caused a great stir in the scientific community when they published results of experiments indicating neutrinos could travel faster than the speed of light. As part of […]

Speed of Light Challenge

Speed of light challenge proposed by physicists, according to New Scientist 23 November 2016 and ScienceDaily 25 November 2016. Many theories in physics and cosmology, including Einstein’s theory of relativity, are based on the belief that the speed of light in a vacuum is always constant. In the late 1990’s this assumption was questioned by […]

Plant Roots See the Light

Plant roots see the light, according to reports in ScienceDaily 3 November 2016, and Science Signalling, doi: 10.1126/scisignal.aaf6530, 1 November 2016. Light is a source of energy for plants, and is also a stimulus for plants to grow and develop. In order to detect changes in the light environment plants have photoreceptors that detect light […]

Half-Life Heresy

“Half-Life Heresy” is the heading of an article in New Scientist, 21 Oct 2006, p36. The article refers to studies on the rates of radioactive decay by Prof Claus Rolfs of Ruhr University written up on PhysicsWeb 31 July 2006. The rate of decay of radioactive elements has always been assumed to occur at a […]
