Also, University administrator: Burn book advocating academic freedom on campus!
Recently, we noted cicadas’ apparent predilection for the prime numbers of 13 and 17.
Darwinism + Cosmology = Utter Nonsense

My thanks go to KF for pointing out the dustup over at TSZ over my last post. I found this little gem at TSZ particularly amusing. Allan Miller quotes me and responds: Barry: “Materialists are obliged to believe …” Miller: … absolutely nothing. There is no obligation. Well Allan, I suppose it depends on what […]
(In case you think this is about a strawman, cf. here) A few days ago UD President, BA, posted on the topic, “If My Eyes Are a Window, Is There Anyone Looking Out?” Reaction at objecting blog TSZ has been explosive. For just one instance — a slice of the cake reveals its ingredients, we […]
When you aim at Darwin’s dullards, you must not miss.
As those who live among them will know, the 17-year insect, the cicada, emerges en masse this year after five larval stages, mates and dies. They are an ongoing puzzle: In 1665, the first volume of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society included a report from New England concerning “swarms of strange insects, and the […]
If this find holds up, watch for people reopening the recent debate about bringing extinct creatures back to life by cloning them.
There are probably more theories on why humans took to walking on two feet than there are suspects in the famous Piltdown Man fossil fraud
I think the NCSE got tired of defending Darwinism. I guess the Discovery Institute promoting ID and the creationists promoting creationism was bad enough, but when mainstream scientists began to join the anti-Darwin fray, it was too much. So what did the NCSE do? They found something to replace Darwinism as the central core of […]
WK has pointed out a vid sequence at YouTube, in which Dr Gonzalez lays out a good summary of the privileged planet thesis. Here is the start: embedded by Embedded VideoYouTube Direkt WK (what, you haven’t bookmarked and speed-dialled this blog yet? tut, tut! . . . ) summarises on points of significance for reflection: […]
COMPLEXITY =/=> EVOLUTION Many Darwinists equate complexity with evolution. They see the fossil record of increasing complexity with time as precisely what defines Evolution. But is increasing complexity always a good thing? The history of computers is instructive. Your iPhone and laptop computer are constructed using base-2, principally because flip-flops and early binary circuits were […]
Joe Felsenstein is an evolutionist that has a unique distinction of having his work favorably cited by creationists and bible scholars (except where he disagrees). For example, religious scholars are using Joe’s work to find descendants of the line of priests from the time of the Bible’s King David. See: Y-Chromosomal Aaron. Joe is also […]
