No, it’s not. Now, what about psychology in its present state?
It sounds like, in their ideal scenario, the rest of us would never know, except for our own experience, if what they are saying is incorrect.
Mark Tapscott at HillFaith (for Congressional staff): “Life Is Simply Impossible Without This ‘Irreducibly Complex’ ATP Generator, So How Did It Get Here?”
The researchers think the original animals preyed on protists or one-celled animals (a shell eat cell world?).
Their computer model might seem more convincing if a single extraterrestrial life form of any sort had ever been found.
No, no, Pivar and Myers didn’t do anything except fall out—with litigation threatened. But there’s an Epstein connection in the story—as there seems to be to a lot of things Darwin these says. And, say what you want, that guy Epstein sure picked his targets.
Our contributor JB asked to have a conversation on what is important in Mathematics, especially Math education. I shared some thoughts. >>Why not, let’s just do that, follow it up and see where it goes? For instance, I think a key insight is to find a useful, powerful definition of what mathematics is. If we […]
There is, of course, more to the story of what goes wrong but honestly doubting the existence of one’s mind is a good start.

This is further indirect evidence— not, of course, drawn out here—that the human brain did not develop the way it did simply to enable survival.
Mainly fun. But seriously, the main question is, when the weather calms down, won’t the spiders tend to just stop being so aggressive? It’s interesting if this is what is meant by “robust evolutionary responses.”
They propose “nonrandom variation”. Later: “Darwin’s idea that variation is generated randomly has largely been taken for granted rather than tested, representing a fundamental gap in our understanding of evolution.”
Darwinians have gone to such lengths to defend Darwin when, it is becoming clear, everybody who lived before Political Correctness was a racist. One interesting thing about the linked story about Jung (1875-1961) is the pushback it is getting from the combox.
At some point, the question should become: Apart from their unquestioned capacity to wreck the careers of doubters, what exactly DID the Darwinists get right *that no one else did*?
Researcher: “The combination of these different technologies in one place suggests to us that, about 325,000 years ago, people at the site were innovative.”
