Posts of the Month for 1998
- February: Missing
Links Still Missing?!
- Wesley Elsberry compares Darwin's predictions about the fossil
record to what we actually observe.
- March: Rank Amateurs on t.o
- Sverker Johansson debunks the notion that all evolutionists
on the newsgroup are just amateurs.
- April: Abiogenesis
- Ian Musgrave covers some of the objections to the idea that
life arose spontaneously (not that this is a problem for Darwinism...)
- May: NM Physicists Create Artificial
Life on the Web!
- Dave Thomas started something with his and Mark Boslough's
April Fools prank report on talk.origins that the Alabama legislature
was redefining the mathematical constant pi to be 3, in
a parody of creationist attempts to legislate against science

- Loren King discusses the widely-held antievolutionist view
that Darwinian selection is disconfirmed by the fossil evidence
because of a lack of gradual transitions, the supposed barriers
to genetic change, and some logical errors about selection.
- August: The discovery of new dino
- Keith Morrison is inspired to sing about the amazing abilities
of T-Rex, at least, if creationists are right about him.
- September: Dembski on Design, simplified

- Louann Miller describes a generalised, and all too familiar,
dialogue between evolutionists and creationists and asks for
popular science books to recommend to Young Earth Creationists

- November: Fashionable Nonsense

book, reviewed here by Richard Harter.
- December: Extant Variation
- There's an enormous amount of genetic variation in modern
populations. How do creationists account for it? asks Adam Noel
