For some reason, Arts and Letters Daily, which I often visit, is always publishing materialist stuff, whether it is well sourced or not, but almost never non-materialist stuff. Anyway, hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a really silly piece from CSICOP – a group of unidirectional materialist skeptics – denying that prayer works.
It is evident by the fact that Richard Dawkins, Jerry Coyne, Ken Miller, Sean Carroll, and Michael Ruse have written book reviews of Michael Behe’s book, The Edge of Evolution, that the best evolutionary biologists think about intelligent design. That only makes sense because Darwin himself wrote much about intelligent design and devoted an entire […]
In this UD post I suggested that the facts (in particular, those presented by Michael Behe in The Edge of Evolution) speak for themselves. I was challenged by a commenter with: “If the facts speak for themselves, why does Behe need to write a book-length argument to make their case?” My response is that the […]
Access Research Network (ARN) is a great place for serious ID enthusiasts. In fact, even Darwinists like Barbara Forrest and Paul Gross give their endorsement: ARN [Access Research Network]….offers a host of resources, many of which may be downloaded without cost…. ARN is a treasure trove of ID materials…a vital arm of the Wedge… Forrest […]
In a UD post below, Salvador comments on Ken Miller and his reference to a paper in Science. Ken is a master of the art of literature bluffing, and you’ll be seeing a lot of this from Darwinists concerning Behe’s The Edge Of Evolution. It works like this: Claim that “such and so has been […]
Ken Miller just published a review of Michael Behe’s book, Edge of Evolution. Here is Miller at his best: but Behe has built his entire thesis on this error. Telling his readers that the production of so much as a single new protein-to-protein binding site is “beyond the edge of evolution”, he proclaims darwinian evolution […]
In this latest post at PhysOrg, it seems that Darwinism hasn’t helped, but instead hindered the fight against cancer. Dr. Peter Duesberg, a molecular biologist at Berkeley, proposed in 2000 that the assumption underlying most cancer research today is wrong. That assumption, that cancer results from a handful of genetic mutations that drive a cell […]
Jim Kushiner, writes, presumablyÃ‚Â from the treadmill, to say: In the latest issue ofÃ‚Â World magazine, editor Marvin Olasky compiles his all-time favorite one-hundred books to read while on the treadmill, “books that exercise my mind while I exercise my body.” Included on the list is Signs of Intelligence, edited by Touchstone publisher James Kushiner and […]
This is a continuation of a discussion of Teleology and ID in physics, ID-inspired least action principles Teleologically-inspired Least Action Principles have become very foundational in modern physics. Tipler argues, “teleology is alive and well in physics.” One of my favorite critics, Bob OH, demanded more proof ID inspired a major area of scientific research. […]
I gather that the move by the Council of Europe to portray intelligent design theory as a threat to human rights has been put off – for now. A number of things could be said about the Council of EuropeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s move. First that you can be sure that the Council will be back later. Second, […]
Last week I reported on the Council of Europe denouncing ID as a threat to democracy (go here). I also asked how long it would be before advocating ID in Europe would be regarded as a hate-crime. We may have to wait no longer: Secularist Europe Silences Pro-Lifers and Creationists From the desk of Paul […]
Here’s an interview I recently gave with the IDEA Center: go here.
Here are the recent additions to this file of columnists’ views on the intelligent design controversy, a useful compendium if you are looking for a range of opinion: Adams, Mike S. suspects (June 4, 2007) that popular Darwinism is supported mainly as a way of avoiding responsibility for sexual choices. Can this be true? Oh, […]
And what rough beast, his hour come round at last Slouches toward Bethlehem to be born? – William Butler Yeats, “Second Coming” The effort to recast Darwin as a religious man, more religious in fact than the common run of Christians and other believers, in the runup to the bicentennial of his birth is well […]
