One would think that the problem of racism in Darwinian theory would be a bigger issue than it is.
Most of us are already embedded in the situations in which we make ethical decisions.
In Kairosfocus’ very good thread about functional complexity, I posted about antibody affinity maturation as an example of a very complex engineering process embedded in biological beings. Both Kairosfocus and Dionisio suggested that I could open a new thread to discuss the issue. When such good friends ask, I can only comply. 🙂 For lack of Read More…
We are told he is superb, but we knew that already
I despise Henry Kissinger. He is an evil man. I am currently reading his On China (2011), and I was reminded of just how evil he is when I read his apology for Zhou Enlai (pp. 241-43). For those who do not remember, as premier of the PPR during the tumultuous 60s and 70s, Zhou Read More…

So Darwin’s theory explains everything, anything, and nothing? Thanks for making it so clear.
The point of this argument isn’t the degree of complexity we find in organisms, but that the complexity shows the presence of design.
Anyway, Mr. Raid has a personality too.
Over the past few months, I noticed objectors to design theory dismissing or studiously ignoring a simple — much simpler than a clock — macroscopic example of Functionally Specific, Complex Organisation and/or associated Information (FSCO/I) and its empirically observed source, the ABU-Garcia Ambassadeur 6500 C3 fishing reel: Yes, FSCO/I is real, and has a known Read More…
Sheldon: What such lists actually show is our ideological preferences that prevent us from accepting “No” for an answer.
Professor Krauss, author of “A Universe from Nothing,” has responded to Eric Metaxas’s Wall Street Journal article, Science Increasingly makes the case for God with a rebuttal titled, No, Astrobiology has not made the case for God (New Yorker, January 24, 2015). Having read Krauss’s rebuttal, I found it to be utterly devoid of quantitative Read More…
