What Francis Beckwith Gets Wrong about Intelligent Design

Francis Beckwith is one of the more interesting commentators on Darwinism and intelligent design.  Beckwith is intelligent and independently minded, willing to move with the evidence and the arguments, and thus capable of non-partisan thought on the issues. Originally a Protestant and a supporter of intelligent design as formulated by the major ID theorists, he […]

Are Falk, Miller, Dawkins, Ayala Socially Guilty? — Highlights of Pellionisz and Sternberg

We have been occasionally graced at UD by visits of DNA researcher Andras Pellionisz who wrote: the issue of “Junk” DNA itself is much more vital for human kind, since hundreds of millions are dying of “Junk DNA diseases” while the urgency of plunging into active research is overlooked because on ANY ideological grounds.

Evolution: A One-in-a-Billion Shot

It is no surprise that there are scientific problems with evolution. Its predictions are continually turning out to be false. It undoubtedly ranks number one in faulty expectations.
