The planet Mars it seems has heated up a half degree since 1970 just like the Earth has. Its southern ice cap is melting just as the northern glaciers are melting on Earth. But it’s all just a big coincidence. Nothing to see here folks. It’s not the sun getting warmer heating both Earth and […]
The words intelligent and design are banned when used together in public schools. What other words are the modern day censors trying to ban when used together you might ask. Warning: You probably won’t want to know. But if you do

I have no “philosophical axe to grind” in this discussion. Philosophically, the notion of a beginning of the present order of Nature is repugnant to me. I am simply stating the dilemma to which our present fundamental conception of physical law leads us. I see no way round it; but whether future developments of science […]
Global warming debate ‘irrational’: scientists Stephanie Stein / Standard-Freeholder Local News – Thursday, April 26, 2007 @ 10:00 The current debate about global warming is “completely irrational,” and people need to start taking a different approach, say two Ottawa scientists. Carleton University science professor Tim Patterson said global warming will not bring about the downfall […]
Another icon of evolution, the world famous fossil “Lucy” was found to not be in the modern human lineage at all. The interesting part of this is that this is extremely newsworthy but because it casts a very unflattering light on so many scientists who, uncritically it seems, placed Lucy in the modern human line […]
Photosynthesis research on yellowtops: Macroevolution in progress. Kutschera U, Niklas KJ. Institut fur Biologie, Universitat Kassel, Heinrich-Plett-Str. 40, 34109 Kassel, Germany. My emphasis. The vast majority of angiosperms, including most of the agronomically important crop plants (wheat, etc.), assimilate CO(2) through the inefficient C(3) pathway of photosynthesis. Under ambient conditions these organisms loose about 1/3 […]
This annual competition teaches Darwin Scouts applied natural selection and survival of the fittest. This yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s winner, a 28 year old ex-motorcycle gang member from Oakland, California, shows no remorse after cheating. Darwin Scouts must be between the ages of 8 and 14. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Let him keep the prize,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Finch. Ã¢â‚¬Å“There are no rules in […]

Marshall, a signer of the ‘Dissent From Darwinism’ document and vocal supporter of ID as science is once again under attack for his […]

In “American Scientific Affiliation – whatever happened to its mission?”, Bill Dembski alludes to an earlier post of mine: I write this post to put into perspective Denyse OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢LearyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s recent remarks about the “gutting of a spiritual tradition from within” (see here Ã¢â‚¬â€ the relevance of her remarks to the ASA cannot be missed) and […]
The ASA (American Scientific Affiliation) is an organization of scientists who are Christians. It has traditionally been strongly pro theistic evolution. Its most prominent member is Francis Collins. I’m also a member. About three years ago I received the following mass mailing from the ASA’s Jack Haas (I’ve known Jack since 1990 and our exchanges […]
My good friend Frank Tipler‘s new book THE PHYSICS OF CHRISTIANITY is coming out shortly (see the listing here at Amazon.com). I’ve invited Frank to contribute to this blog about this book and any other topics of interest to him.
Here are some animations of the machinery of living cells, which I have encountered from various sources and put in alphabetical order for convenience. You might want to bookmark the file, asÃ‚Â I plan to add to it,
