The Evolution of Serendipity

A key question for evolution has always been: How does biological variation arise? Darwin’s theory of evolution explained that natural selection killed off the less-fit variations, but how did the variation arise in the first place? In the nineteenth century the mechanisms of biological variation were not well understood and it was possible to imagine […]

Prestin and Darwin’s Gardener

A fundamental, and often false, prediction of evolution is that functionally unconstrained DNA should not be conserved in distant species. As described here, everything from proteins to long stretches of DNA, though highly similar across different species, defy evolutionsts who search for a functional constraint, as required by their theory. And how do evolutionists respond? […]

Yet Another IPCC Foul

  This is looking more and more like a farce: This is to be found in Chapter 13 of the Working Group II report, the same part of the IPCC fourth assessment report in which the “Glaciergate” claims are made. There, is the startling claim that: “Up to 40% of the Amazonian forests could react drastically […]

The All-Powerful and Infinitely Creative Darwinian Magic Wand: “Deep Time”

In another UD thread a commenter made the following observation and claim: Darwinists are not going to be surprised by very high function after 3.5 billion years of evolution. Ah yes, the ubiquitous and all-powerful Darwinian magic wand of “deep time,” which makes the impossible possible, the possible probable, and the probable inevitable — or […]

Extraterrestrial life

This is science??

The Royal Society, the foremost British science body is hosting a conference exploring extraterrestrial life. Given that there is zero evidence from any scientific study ever that there is any extra terrestrial life, why is this considered science when even discussing ID would never be sanctioned by the Royal Society? Aliens are likely to look and […]

Update on Prior IPCC Snafu

Last week we linked to a report that the IPCC had published unsubstantiated anecdotes masquerading as peer reviewed science.  In a stunningly candid admission, they now admit they included the false “science” in a conscious effort to move policy makers.  The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers […]

Yet Another False IPCC Report

Full article here. THE United Nations climate science panel faces new controversy for wrongly linking global warming to an increase in the number and severity of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods. It based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny — and ignored warnings from […]

Podcasts in the intelligent design controversy: Why is anyone surprised by this news?

Academic Freedom Update: California Science Center Engaged in Illegal Cover-Up This episode of ID the Future features an academic freedom update on the California Science Center’s cancellation last October of a screening of a pro-ID film, Darwin’s Dilemma, by a private group. How does a government agency try to evade its obligations to the First […]
