R.S.V.P. is an abbreviation for the French “répondez s’il vous plaît” which means “please respond” and traditionally is appended on invitations so that the host knows who and how many guests to expect. Richard Dawkins and PZ Myers are running around saying they weren’t “gate crashers” at a pre-screening of “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”. But […]
by K.D. Kalinsky “Either biological life required intelligent design or it did not. As with most problems in science, it is difficult to prove one option or another with absolute certainty. Instead, options can be evaluated against each other in an attempt to estimate which option is more likely. Even then, the fact that one […]
An on line appeal for RD and PZ to make sacrifices in the interest of winning the “war on science”. Will they take the advice? “Richard and PZ, when it comes to Expelled, it’s time to let other people be the messengers for science. This is not about censoring your ideas and positions, but rather […]
Why was an American Darwin fan kicked out of the screening of Expelled? Templeton winner trashes design? The Big Bang as a creationist theory At last, a useful encyclopedia entry on intelligent design theory
I read somewhere about a guy in Florida some years ago who was winning races in an offshore speed boat powered by hydrogen/oxygen by water electrolyzed on demand. He used a conventional piston engine modified slightly to run on hydrogen/oxygen (which is one of the most efficient fuels you can get). Normally there’s no way […]
The Austrailian published a transcript of an interview involving the co-host of Counterpoint, Michael Duffy and Jennifer Marohasy, a biologist and senior fellow of Melbourne-based think tank the Institute of Public Affairs. Anyone in public life who takes a position on the greenhouse gas hypothesis will ignore it at their peril. Excerpt: Duffy: “Can you […]
Listen to it here.
A friend tells me there is quite the kadiddle going on over at Darwinist Web sites on account of PZ Myers getting the bum’s rush out of the recent Expelled screening. And he wasn”t let in even though Richard Dawkins, also sneaking around, was let in and introduced. What, I wonder, did Dawkins say? Hi, I’m […]
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRESS CONTACT: ROBERT CROWTHER DISCOVERY INSTITUTE (206) 292-0401 X107 ROB@DISCOVERY.ORG Richard Dawkins, World’s Most Famous Darwinist, Stoops to Gate-crashing Expelled by Bruce Chapman, www.evolutionnews.org Like many films im pre-release, Ben Stein’s Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is being selectively screened around the country to develop a buzz. There is a growing fear by […]
Can science ever stop being skeptical of the dominant theory? Ferenc Miskolczi may have discovered an upper bound to Greenhouse Effect. He found a “simplifying” assumption of an optically infinite atmospheric thickness in the original climate models. Modeling an optically finite atmospheric thickness clamped the “runaway greenhouse” projections. Could similar “simplifying” assumptions be discovered in […]
Darwinians objecting to Michael Behe’s Irreducible Complexity appeal to indirect “scaffolding” or Roman Arch routes that support the assembly and are later discarded. Now research shows cancer is caused by mutations in the CARD11 gene that forms a cytoplasmic scaffolding docking site for a signaling molecule. If mutations in genes forming known scaffolding lead to […]
Militant atheism is on the rise. Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens have dominated best seller lists with books denigrating religious belief as dangerous foolishness. And these authors are merely the leading edge of a far larger movement – one that now includes much of the scientific community. “If science stands opposed […]
The following is an edited extract from a Nature paper. It is an example of real ID research. Notice that the designers only used evolutionary techniques to very slightly tweak the enzymes scaffold structure that had been designed with “borrowed components” from existing enzymes tacked together. The novel active site was completely intelligently designed. doi:10.1038/nature06879 Kemp elimination catalysts by computational […]
Rich Akin, CPA and CEO of Physicians and Surgeons for Scientific Integrity (PSSI), has reported to its membership the completion of a successful five-city educational event, titled What Darwin Didn’t Know, in Spain this past January. A week prior to the first event the national newspaper El País published a full page article that portrayed […]
There has been a Darwinian vs. human-directed evolution experiment running in North America for centuries. It is the horse. That is, the mustang vs. humanly directed horse breeds. What did natural selection do? What did intelligent design (specified complexity) do? For more, go here.
