Why skepticism needs to apply to science as much as to religion

EXCERPT: Among experts who actually examine the causes of change on a global scale, many concentrate their research on designing and enhancing computer models of hypothetical futures. “These models have been consistently wrong in all their scenarios,” asserts Ball. “Since modelers concede computer outputs are not “predictions” but are in fact merely scenarios, they are Read More…

The Missing Link in Bird Evolution Has Been Found!

I’m suffering from a severe case of cognitive dissonance. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,199695,00.html Those of us with room-temperature IQs are perpetually assured that there is overwhelming evidence for Darwinian gradualism in the fossil record. So, after reading the news release linked above, I asked myself, “Self, why is this big news?” I guess I just don’t get it. Read More…

Google trends for searching on “intelligent design”

The following Google graph shows trends for searches on “intelligent design”: http://www.google.com/trends?q=Intelligent+Design&ctab=0&geo=all&date=all. Click on the “regions” tab. It shows that Australia has about half the searches for ID that the US does. Given that Australia’s population is about 20 million, that means that if the US population is 250 million, Australia searches for ID on Read More…

Intelligent Engineering OR Natural Selection?

In reading the following excerpt from a Cal Berkeley newsletter, ask yourself what contribution, if any, conventional evolutionary theory is making to the study of these biochemical systems. As an acceptable answer, try NIL. In recent years Oster and his colleagues created a groundbreaking model of ATP synthase, an enzyme that synthesizes ATP, the universal Read More…

Airplane magnetos, contingency designs, and reasons ID will prevail

Intelligent design will open doors to scientific exploration which Darwinism is too blind to perceive. The ID perspective allows us to find designed architectures within biology which are almost invisible to natural selection. Thus, the ID perspective is a far better framework for scientific investigation than the Darwinian perspective. What do I mean, and how Read More…
