Expelled: “Denormalizing” the Darwin thugs

If I had heard the word “denormalizing” from a sociology prof, instead of from Ezra Levant, the courageous Canadian lawyer who is working to bring down Canada’s unspeakable “human rights commissions”, I would just groan. But, “denormalizing” is a useful term for the Expelled film’s potential impact in the United States. Consider, for example, the […]

Nelson in São Paulo, Brazil

I’ll be participating in this three-day seminar on Darwinism and design at Mackenzie Presbyterian University in the heart of São Paulo. Mackenzie is one of the oldest and most distinguished private universities in Brazil, and they’ve invited Brazilians scientists, such as evolutionary geneticist Dr. Aldo Mellender de Araújo, to participate in the event.

Fr. Heller puts forth this […]

Proteins essential to species differentiation- evolved or designed?

Researchers have discovered two proteins essential for reproductive cells to latch onto each other and then to fuse. Changing at least one of these proteins appears to prevent species from interbreeding. This appears to open up a way to stop malaria. A new species would appear to require at least two changed genes, one for […]

Expelled — Separation of Church and State in Public Education, Selectively Enforced

Judge Jones ruled that rational and evidential challenges to Darwinian orthodoxy cannot be tolerated in public education because they violate the First Amendment.

Dinesh D’Souza speaks out against ID
