Eric R. Hedin, Ph.D. earned his doctorate in experimental plasma physics from the University of Washington, and conducted post-doctoral research at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He has taught physics and astronomy at Taylor University, Indiana Wesleyan University, and Ball State University in Indiana, and at Biola University in Southern California. At Ball State, his research interests focused on computational nano-electronics and higher-dimensional physics. His BSU course, The Boundaries of Science, attracted national media attention. Dr. Hedin’s recent book, Canceled Science: What Some Atheists Don’t Want You to See, highlights scientific evidence pointing to design.
Energy Fusion Reactor Intelligent Design

ITER: International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor

Imagine building ITER with the additional engineering demand that it not only function to produce fusion energy, but that it contain the machinery to be able to reproduce itself Imagine building ITER with the additional engineering demand that it not only function to produce fusion energy, but that it contain the machinery to be able to reproduce itself multiple times over!

At Phys.org: Anatomy of a superorganism: Ant pupae secrete fluid as ‘milk’ to nurture young larvae

Life in an ant colony is a symphony of subtle interactions between insects acting in concert, more like cells in tissue than independent organisms bunking in a colony. Now, researchers have discovered a previously unknown social interaction that unites the colony, linking ants across developmental stages: adults, larvae, and pupae (an immobile stage, not unlike Read More…

Intelligent Design The human body

At Evolution News: For Darwinism, Pregnancy Is the “Mother of all Chicken-and-Egg Problems”

David Klinghoffer writes: Here’s a really devilish problem to pose to your favorite friend, teacher, or relative who’s a Darwinist true believer. As Your Designed Body co-author Steve Laufmann observes, the relationship between an embryo and its mother is a relationship between unequals. The embryo’s systems are not yet complete so it depends on its mother for Read More…

Functionally Specified Complex Information & Organization Intelligent Design thermodynamics and information

From Evolution News: Prigogine’s Self-Organization vs. Specified Biological Complexity

Self-organization, exemplified in “dissipative structures” (Prigogine), which can arise in systems maintained far from thermodynamic equilibrium, result in a decrease in information and do not constitute a natural explanation of information-rich biological systems.

brains and computation vs contemplation Consciousness Intelligent Design Mind

At Big Think: Brain experiment suggests that consciousness relies on quantum entanglement

As a physicist whose research involved computational nano-electronics, for which the entire physical schema relied upon quantum mechanical transport of electrons through molecular structures, it would seem to be a “no-brainer” that quantum processes (including entanglement) are prevalent in brain activity.
