This article makes a lot of points I’ve made here in the past. The main one being that global warming is a net GOOD thing. Even the IPCC admits that it will be a good thing for at least the next several decades. Food production will increase and cold-related deaths will decline far more than […]
Patrick Mcrae, Staff Writer for The BRITES, gives his top picks to keep you sharp in your pursuit of effective and uncompromising pugilistic Darwinian ideology. More HERE.
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 […]
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. Looking forward […]
Consider the following claims: Darwinism requires that the Fundamental Theorem [of Natural Selection] does not apply most of the time. Walter ReMine Biotic Message and a relative lack of natural selection may be the prerequisite for major evolutionary advance Mae Wan Ho Beyond neo-Darwinism and Concerning this theory [Darwinian evolution], I believe that we might […]
Humiliated by a demeaning rap video, their treatment after crashing prescreenings of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, and the growing popularity of the Wistar Polka, a pod of Brights was sighted protesting outside of the Stardom Multiplex Theater in Dallas, Texas where a prescreening of Expelled was showing. Details with complete choreography to the tune of […]
Today’s front page story (above the fold) in the Waco Tribune refers to the recent rash of tenure denials at Baylor as a “massacre.” For today’s story and other press on it, go to the following links: * “Faculty ‘Massacre’” story in Waco Trib [4.3.08] * Chronicle of Higher Education [4.2.08] * Denyse O’Leary’s Analysis […]
Has anyone provided a proof of God’s inexistence? Not even close. Has quantum cosmology explained the emergence of the universe or why it is here? Not even close. Have the sciences explained why our universe seems to be fine-tuned to allow for the existence of life? Not even close. Are physicists and biologists willing to […]
Father Michal Heller, 72, a Polish priest-cosmologist and a onetime associate of Archbishop Karol Wojtyla, the future pope, was named March 12 as the winner of the Templeton Prize. http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0801398.htm In this recent interview came a critique of the intelligent design position as bad theology, akin to the Manichean heresy. Fr. Heller puts forth this […]
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 […]
Judge Jones ruled that rational and evidential challenges to Darwinian orthodoxy cannot be tolerated in public education because they violate the First Amendment. It now appears that using religious images in a high school art class assignment is unconstitutional, but only if those religious images are Christian. A high school student has filed a lawsuit […]
Are all the characters on stage in the Age of the Machine video also in the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed? Anyone? Bueller?
In reading Dinesh D’Souza’s WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT CHRISTIANITY, I was surprised at how uncritical and historically uninformed is his view of evolution. For instance, he lumped C. S. Lewis with other notable 20th century Christian intellectuals as accepting evolutionary theory, but in fact toward the end of his life, Lewis regretted his earlier support […]
