Identify the Indian or Shut Up

Long time followers of this site will remember that my grandfather used to collect small stones he called “arrowheads.”  He had the misguided notion that these small pieces of flint had complex and specific chip patterns that he attributed to intelligent agency, i.e., Indians making tips for their arrows.  Later in life I learned that […]

Edge of Evolution deliberately “misshelved” by Darwin zealot

At a blog called “biologists helping bookstores,” a Pasadena-based woman whose handle is Shandon explains how she deliberately misshelved Mike Behe’s Edge of Evolution, and a number of other books – distributing them around the store according to her private tastes.

Hunter (Author) Book Description Had evolutionists been in charge, they wouldn’t have made the mosquito, planetary orbits would align perfectly, and the human eye would […]

Recent polls relevant to the intelligent design controversy – what do they really show?

The recent North American polls I’ve seen recently show several key trends: 1. Both evolution and creation are widely accepted, and the distribution of numbers is roughly stable over the years. No dramatic proof or disproof of Darwin’s theory that would change many minds has occurred. That said, it is quite likely that many people […]

When in doubt, doubt

I hope I am not interrupting a heated exchange over pepperology* but I thought I’d share this: A reader of the Post-Darwinist wrote me to ask, how it could  a plant evolve by Darwinian means to look like a wasp – as we are meant to believe. I replied: Well, the Darwinian theory is that […]
