An international team of scientists has published an article in Nature magazine, suggesting that oxygen began accumulating in the atmosphere at least three billion years ago. The team’s findings raise a troubling question for Darwinian evolutionists: how did the exquisitely complex metabolism of oxygenic photosynthesis arise so soon after the dawn of life? The team Read More…
The guy who was not allowed to teach a course that featured information pro design in the universe, but other profs were allowed to teach against it? Background story here.
Neil Turok heads the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, which Stephen Hawking calls the pre-eminent centre for astrophysics in the world.
Tom Bethell: An article of our secular faith holds that there is nothing exceptional about human life. This is dogma, lacking any justification, but it has already been codified as the Mediocrity Principle.
Cosmologist: Time and space are not independent entities but can be converted back and forth between each other.
Some of the choices other than Higgs will be a more rigorous test of their prediction system.
No surprise, because their alternatives are grim: Space aliens, God, or non-Darwinian evolution theories – all of which they minimize or reject because every competitive possibility detracts from their rule.
It isn’t an explanation, only an “it may as well have been” speculation, an a remarkably inept one at best.
Researchers: Our results suggest that the perspective of evolution as a process with simple, predictable dynamics covers only a small fragment of long-term evolution.
Note that the publication is not called Academic Science, it is called Popular Science. That, presumably, means dealing with the public (republic?) of regular readers …
Sadly, everything can indeed be explained by materialism, if ALL you want from an explanation is that it conform to materialist thinking. We tend to notice that defect the more, the less sense any given explanation makes.
It seems we can now put together at least a draft outline composite response to the UD pro-darwinism essay challenge of a year ago, based on Jerad’s remarks at 70 in the one-year anniversary thread, and a key concession by EL at 149 in the same. In the interests of moving the discussion on the Read More…
Popular Science’s online arm has just shut down its comments section. Guess why? A politically motivated, decades-long war on expertise has eroded the popular consensus on a wide variety of scientifically validated topics. Everything, from evolution to the origins of climate change, is mistakenly up for grabs again. Scientific certainty is just another thing for Read More…
Maybe we wouldn’t want hive minds, but you have to admit, they are pretty efficient.
