In the seventeenth century the Roman Catholic theologian Nicholas Malebranche proposed that nature’s evil and inefficiency were not created by god but by natural processes. Simply put, Malebranche said that god preferred to use simple though imprecise natural laws rather than a long sequence of complicated miracles that would be needed to achieve perfection. Malebranche […]
In “Stone tools shed light on early human migrations” (Nature, August 31, 2011), Matt Kaplan tells us that “Hominins with different tool-making technologies coexisted,” The axes, found in Kenya by Christopher Lepre, a palaeontologist at Columbia University in New York, and his team are estimated to be around 1.76 million years old. That’s 350,000 years […]
The problem is, the “liberals” publishing the stern critiques are probably old style “liberal arts” types – when liberal arts meant something rational and relevant.
Failures of Darwinism are not merely a negative. They are a positive. The growing number of stress points at which Darwinism fails can, taken together, form a picture, one that points to general laws
One of the themes of biology is the ubiquity of complexity. From microbes to humans, and everything in between, biology is chocked full of fantastic designs. For evolutionists, these roads lead to the unexpected conclusion of early complexity. If evolution is true, then it somehow produced incredible feats of engineering early on, even before they […]
It is practically impossible to stay abreast of the many misconceptions and misrepresentations of evolution in the popular media. Across the political spectrum, in print, radio, TV and the new electronic media, pundits who know little to nothing about evolution hold forth on this debate as though they were experts. Here is one example from […]
One of the recent brouhahas in the rising “silly season” of the 2012 US election cycle, is how certain ID-friendly candidates such as Mrs Michelle Bachmann, are allegedly Christo-fascist “Dominionists” influenced by that nefarious “Dominionist,” the late theologian, Francis Schaeffer. All of this is in a context where, in the recent Aug 17, 2011 B4U-ACT […]
You have to literally be there, to see what today’s Darwin defenders are willing to do. What their media supporters are willing to cover up.
That’s not hurting them because today a lot of what passes for science is too nuts to be wrong.
Michael Lynch’s recent finding that “novel means” of genetic intervention are required for the future genetic well-being of our species is a bit disturbing. After all, the last time evolutionists imposed “novel means” of genetic intervention we had everything from forced sterilization to institutionalization (read imprisonment). Nonetheless, Lynch informs us that the fundamental requirement for […]
See if you can guess which famous person wrote the following passage: It has been the error of the schools to teach astronomy, and all the other sciences, and subjects of natural philosophy, as accomplishments only; whereas they should be taught theologically, or with reference to the Being who is the author of them: for […]
Every year starting with 2006, the not-for-profit Access Research Network has put up a list, publicized by ID folk, of the year’s top ten stories on design vs Darwin. Here are UD News’s three top picks from each year.
But in that year, the Biologic Institute, where Sternberg now works, is founded to research design in life forms (It is not to be confused with BioLogos, a “Christians for Darwin” think tank.)
Gonzalez, for example, continued a productive publishing career in the study of exoplanets at Grove City College, and Marks continued to undermine Darwinism by his skeptical computer studies at Baylor.
By now many people know there is something wrong with Darwinism – but these people were in a position to learn that through their work. Not through mainstream media.
