Slava Gerovitch: Mathematics had led him to believe that the world was both driven by chance and fundamentally ordered according to the laws of probability.
Are Darwin’s faithful starting to get centred out? Thoughts?
Ray Comfort’s video, Evolution vs. God, has attracted criticism since its release earlier this month. No surprises there. But when two prominent evolutionary biologists lend their endorsement to an expose of the video, which contains even worse scientific errors than the video it claims to debunk, then you have to laugh. Jaclyn Glenn, a 25-year-old Read More…
Unconscious bias? Publish or perish? Both?
When it’s really hard to tell, you have to know there is a problem.
The main thing to see here is that scientism is the sort of belief that the materialist is supposed to have, enforce, and then disclaim, NOT defend.
What would count as evidence against common descent given that organisms share such strong similarities?

Coren’s insights are usually valuable, but when he suggests that Chaser is about as smart as a two and a half-year-old child, he loses me.
“The strange thing is that the action happens instantly, with no time for light or an electromagnetic signal or radio signal to communicate between the two,” Hobson said. “It is a single object that is behaving as a single object but it is in two different places. It doesn’t matter what the distance is between them.
“Our evidence … challenges the view that plants were exploited by hunter-gatherers and early agriculturalists solely for energy requirements, rather than taste.
… and talks like an ID theorist.
For the sake of argument, let’s surmise that, after a long controversy, finally ID succeeds in scientifically convincing all people that life and the universe are designed. Good, but what happens now? If the universe is a design there must be a designer. What is the designer? It is likely that evolutionists convinced to ID Read More…
It must be the silly season over at Why Evolution Is True. Professor Jerry Coyne has just written a post entitled, Measles back again, thanks to religion, in which he leads off with this bald assertion: This is one of the more palpable dangers of faith: disease spread by a refusal to accept modern medicine, Read More…
