It’s a rare planet on which you can get into a needless squabble due to scuffing your obligations, stick your insurer with the bill, and not expect to see your rates go up.
Put another way, if the Cambrian is not a problem for Darwinism, Darwinism is not science. All real theories have problems, but Darwinism, like any cult, never has any problems – because evidence always takes second place to cult beliefs.
There’s a world out there that is not Darwin’s.
Oft said before but bears repeating: Jonah Goldberg on the media role in the bunkum cult of the expert: There are no more devout members of the cult of expertise than mainstream journalists. They rely on experts for guidance about what is “mainstream” and accurate and what is not. Sometimes that’s fine. Surgeons are extremely […]
In fact, if New Scientist keeps on this way, they will make life difficult for UD News. They were always such a ready source of crackpot cosmologies and psychologies, and fevered Darwin cult crusades, etc. A break from the more demanding coverage of real science news, often welcomed.
The principal audience of legacy mainstream media today is expanded government and its supporters.
In this case, it works because the leaping blennie doesn’t even like water.
In recent weeks there has been yet another drum-beat talking-point on how Christians in public life are a menace to liberty and democracy. For, through their faith in the God of the Bible, they are suspected to be morally monstrous followers of a barbaric bronze age god — NOT, and to thus be advancing a […]
In my previous post, I highlighted three common atheistic objections to to the cosmological fine-tuning argument. In that post, I made no attempt to answer these objections. My aim was simply to show that the objections were weak and inconclusive. Let’s go back to the original three objections: 1. If the universe was designed to […]
Yes, evolutionary theorist Wilson decided to descend from his ivory tower eminence and try to fix a has-been town and its religion. Never a dragon-filled moat around when you need one ….
Ann Gauger has already drawn our attention to the new paper, published just last week, in the journal BIO-Complexity. Authored by Discovery Institute’s Stephen Meyer and Paul Nelson, the paper is concerned with the question of the origin of the genetic code, and seeks to evaluate the efficacy of the so-called Direct RNA Templating (DRT) […]
In a comment to my last post Dr. Torley notes that many scientists take the laws of nature as brute facts that “are ‘just there’ and cannot be changed.” According to Dr. Torley, “Scientists who take this view of Nature tend to fall into the intellectual trap of regarding the laws of Nature as necessary.

Can you blame them? He was delicious and it was fun.
Conceivably, he doesn’t realize it but the bar right now is not set at what the candidate believes, but at whether he is willing to stand up to the Darwin lobby’s claim of exclusive rights to public goods and services, and compulsory access to students in school, and none others allowed.
I gave a talk at the beginning of this year to a group of students at Biola University . In the talk I described just how revolutionary ID is compared to the current scientific paradigm of chance and necessity. But, such a talk is likely to go over students heads if there aren’t concrete examples. […]
