This self-imposed convention of science, which limits inquiry to testable, natural explanations about the natural world, is referred to […]

Get a load of this: Today, anthropology is at war with itself. The discipline has divided into two schools of thought – the social anthropologists and the evolutionary anthropologists. The schism between the two is simple but deeply ingrained. Academics in the subject clearly align themselves with one side or the other; once that choice […]

Help us compose a standard anti-intelligent design disclaimer for research papers!

Friend Malcolm Chisholm writes to say, Some fascinating research on electron transport chain proteins from Princeton. These guys say: “Our new theory extends Darwin’s model, demonstrating how organisms can subtly direct aspects of their own evolution to create order out of randomness.” Apparently they have self correcting proteins, but they seem to think it goes […]
