As Sal pointed out earlier, Nature is running a story about “creationists winning” in South Korea, and “remove references to evolution from high-school textbooks”. If you were to just read the Nature article, and not put on your baloney detector, what you would walk away with is the idea that the entirety of evolutionary theory Read More…
From the pages of the prestigious scientific journal Nature: A petition to remove references to evolution from high-school textbooks claimed victory last month after the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) revealed that many of the publishers would produce revised editions that exclude examples of the evolution of the horse or of avian ancestor Read More…
” … it is permissible to engage in ad hominem attacks — provided that you are attacking proponents of intelligent design.”

But it makes no sense on the science and evolution must become the master craftsman. Its latest wizardry is a “risk management strategy.” As we have seen, a new paper now explains that mutations rates Read More…
“insect wing lengths from an extensive review of publications on fossil insects.”
“Planetary scientists are zero for 8 as far as observations meeting predictions (even worse when moons like Io, Enceladus and Titan are included). “
“‘Whoa, these figures are too freaky! Very cool!’ said a microblogger. ‘The opening figure and the drop are both too creepy,’ said another.”
Modern science takes for granted that the naturalistic origin of life, called “abiogenesis” or “chemical evolution” or “pre-biotic evolution” is extremely improbable but not impossible. “Life” here means a single self-reproducing and self-sustaining biological cell. Science claims that life can arise from inorganic matter through natural processes. This unsupported claim is based on the conviction Read More…
“Just when every successive wave of peers and rivals thinks they have got his number, Anand sees that one, all important, absolute move.”
