Evolution in the light of intelligent design – making evolution make sense

Here are the new additions to the Evolution and Intelligent Design Encyclopedia, from British physicist David Tyler. Read, for example, about adaptationist fantasies (how natural selection explains everything it doesn’t explain), why bipedalism (walking on two legs) is good for you (not like what you’ve been told), and what the fact that very old life Read More…

Dangerous questions? Huh? Materialists have NO dangerous questions.

At Mindful Hack I have put up some information from a neurosurgeon on why the mind obviously isn’t merely the brain. Amazing stuff, and certainly NOT what you would hear from materialist cognitive scientist Steven Pinker. Pinker posed a whole bunch of “dangerous questions” in the Chicago Sun-Times. What strikes me as remarkable is how UNdangerous Read More…

Just how much brain do you need? Could you use that space for something else?

At Mindful Hack I have put up some information from a neurosurgeon on what the mind obviously isn’t – merely the brain. Amazing stuff, and certainly stuff you won’t hear from materialist cognitive scientist Steven Pinker, who has discovered questions that he thinks are “dangerous”, but I have no idea why. Today, non-materialism is dangerous. Read More…

Casey Luskin interviews Robert Marks concerning his new Evolutionary Informatics Lab

Here’s a fun interview with my friend and colleague Robert Marks. I hope you catch from the interview the ambitiousness of the lab and how it promises to put people like Christoph Adami and Rob Pennock out of business (compare www.evolutionaryinformatics.org with devolab.cse.msu.edu). Well-Informed: Dr. Robert Marks and the Evolutionary Informatics Lab July 20, 2007 Read More…

Kevin Padian: The Archie Bunker Professor of Paleobiology at Cal Berkeley

Kevin Padian’s review in NATURE of several recent books on the Dover trial says more about Padian and NATURE than it does about the books under review. Indeed, the review and its inclusion in NATURE are emblematic of the new low to which the scientific community has sunk in discussing ID. Bigotry, cluelessness, and misrepresentation Read More…

Dawkins to Wolpert: “Lewis, you are starting to sound like a creationist”

Chuckie’s Ghost visits me regularly and let’s me know what’s happening inside the belly of the beast. Here’s the latest: The 2007 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference in London included a “social” occasion in which Richard Dawkins, Steve Jones, and Lewis Wolpert all participated in a “debate” in the London Museum of Natural History. It Read More…

Prominent NAS member trashes neo-Darwinism

Natural selection …is not the fundamental cause of evolution. Masatoshi Nei Science continues to destroy Darwinism. A prominent member of the National Academy of Sciences, Masatoshi Nei, trashed neo-Darwinism in the recent peer-reviewed article: The new mutation theory of phenotypic evolution. Haldane’s dilemma showed mathematically that natural selection could not be the major driving force Read More…
