What kind of chemistry does life, as we know it, require in order to exist?
There has been considerable speculation about higher primates having similar intellectual and linguistic capabilities to humans. Is this true?
The Magis Center’s new John Templeton funded campaign, The Purposeful Universe, looks at an evolutionary system guided by order in physics and chemistry.
Among advances in medicine and technology is the capability of “gene editing” via a technique known as CRISPR; bu what are the bioethical considerations?
Scientists Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel were contemporaries. Mendel certainly knew of Charles Darwin, but did Darwin ignore Gregor Mendel's work?
Known as the "father of genetics," Gregor Mendel was also a priest, teacher, and abbot, raised bees, recorded meteorological data, and tracked sunspots!
The human brain is the most complex organ in existence. It is a largely uncharted frontier for scientists. And it is not like a computer.
New studies on animal learning, language, and the use of tools have created a number of articles implying “animals are just like us.” But how true is this?
Recently, I wrote a post about a gene survey that examined 100,000 species. With the help of a Magis reader, we discovered another side to the story.
How were the constituent molecules obtained from primitive chemicals in the early earth, and how were they assembled into the building blocks of life?
