I remember science in Grades Eleven and Twelve. It was about measuring things accurately, estimating according to fixed rules, and – above all – understanding how the laws of physics and the periodic table worked.

The propeller on the […]

This is the first of a series of posts on ‘The Science of God’, aka my response to the charge that ID is indistinguishable from Pastafarianism. Let me start with a familiar Q and A: Q: What, in a nutshell, is the Darwinist argument against ID? A: First of all, nature doesn’t exhibit the […]
Nathan Schneider draws my attention to his article on Turkish creationist Harun Yahya (a pen name for Adnan Oktar). He asked for my comments, and here is more or less what I said:
In another thread a new sock puppet contributor on Uncommon Descent named TheYellowShark with an as yet undetermined appendage writes: Geocentricsm was accepted beyond all reasonable doubt the scientific community circa 1610. Being in an echo chamber isn’t good for anybody. == And intelligent design was accepted by the scientific community prior to 1859. Both […]
