Dover Area School Board (hereafter “Kitzmiller) decision (see http://www.pamd.uscourts.gov/kitzmiller/kitzmiller_342.pdf to download the full opinion). This response is adapted from an e-mail I sent out to a bunch […]
What does the theory of Natural Selection (the most well tested theory in science) predict about Avian Flu? Anything at all practical that isn’t obvious from simple observations of past flu behavior? Don’t hold your breath. The most well tested theory in science is also the most useless theory in science. ID predicts that no […]

http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/short/311/5764/1068b Mesozoic mammals have been thought to have been small, nocturnal, and confined to a few niches on land until the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Most are recorded by isolated jaw fragments or teeth. Ji et al. (p. 1123; see the cover and the Perspective by Martin) now describe a Jurassic […]
I was reading an interview with Craig Venter (CV) and imagine my surprise when I caught him making a glaring human physiology error: Ventor: “It’s very simple, because every cell in our body has DNA.” Oops. 😳 I thought everyone knew that mammalian red blood cells have no DNA… 😎
Dave Pierre, in blogging about the Los Angeles Times’ continual strawman bashing of ID, posts a great reading list at the bottom of the article. Questions About Intelligent Design What Intelligent Design IsÃ¢â‚¬â€and IsnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Primer: Intelligent Design Theory in a Nutshell The Science Behind Intelligent Design Theory Thanks Dave!
Wesley Elsberry, when confronted with the following quote from the letter of the federal Office of Special Counsel to Rick Sternberg: Our investigation shows that NCSE is a political advocacy organization dedicated to defeating any introduction of ID, creationism or religion into the American education system. In fact, members of NCSE worked closely with SI […]
The most tested theory in science – Natural Selection – has new and improved evidence to support it says Pim Van Meurs on Panda’s Thumb. Excuse me, but haven’t the NeoDarwinian dogmatists been saying for years that Natural Selection is as well tested as the theory of gravity? Do we hear headlines like New Evidence […]
It’s with sadness I announce that Henry Morris died Saturday evening (2.25.06). Henry Morris was a great man, and all critics of Darwinian evolution are in his debt for maintaining pressure on this pseudoscience when so much of the Western world capitulated to it. As I wrote last year at this time (go here) in […]
ID is not the same as Creationism, however, it would be naive to say the following article has no bearing on the future of ID. I’m personally disappointed to hear some creationist students mingling religious ideas into their scientific views, but on the whole, this report can’t be happy news for Richard Dawkins. :=) Academics […]
Broward selects biology text with watered-down passages on evolution A review by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel found that on one edited page, Holt agreed to give Darwin less credit for shaping modern biology….. Previous editions of the textbook said Darwin’s theory “is the essence of biology.” In the Broward edition, students will read instead that […]

[From a colleague:] Leo Tolstoy’s last completed letter, dictated from his sick-bed at the Astapovo train station on November 1, 1910 (six days before his death), and addressed to his son Seryozha and daughter Tanya, included a warning that Seryozha should not allow himself to be seduced by Darwinism. Here is the relevant passage: “The […]
South Dakota just passed a law making abortion a felony except in case of medical emergency. It’s now just a matter for the governor to sign it which everyone expects him to do. The law is designed to force the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade. The present Supreme Court is unlikely to hold […]
Thank you Joelle Parks: Another critic of the bill [i.e., the Wisconin bill banning ID], Gary McCaleb, a senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, said in an interview that his firm would thoroughly investigate the legislation. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Mandating a point of view and trying to enshrine your current science in law is, to me, […]
