I gave a talk at the beginning of this year to a group of students at Biola University . In the talk I described just how revolutionary ID is compared to the current scientific paradigm of chance and necessity. But, such a talk is likely to go over students heads if there aren’t concrete examples. […]
Joe Felsenstein (Zoologist) at Panda’s Thumb responded  to my previous article  showing that a couple critics, Wolpert in particular who created the NFL, actually agree with Dembski. He refers me to a paper he wrote  where he explains that the problem with Dembski’s argument is the relevant fitness landscape for evolution is […]
In the popular media, ID is often portrayed as Creationism in new clothes. And indeed, even among ID proponents, the creation implications tend to be predominantly emphasized. Yet the theory underpinning Intelligent Design has implications beyond the realm of biological history, perhaps it is a much broader theory than most realize at first. In fact, […]
Biologists in particular and scientists in general are horribly confused defenders of their field. When responding to attacks from non-scientists, rather than attempt the rigor that the geometry of induction and similar bodies of statistics provide, they fall back on Popperian incantations, trying to browbeat their opponents into acceding to the homily that if one follows certain magic rituals—the vaunted “scientific method”—then one is rewarded with The Truth.
In my previous articles  , I explained how infinite probabilistic resources lead to Hume’s problem of induction. In this article I explain how ID helps solve the problem of induction, and rescues science from infinite probabilistic resources.
Previously , I argued that not only may a universe with infinite probabilistic resources undermine ID, it will definitely undermines science. Science operates by fitting models to data using statistical hypothesis testing with an assumption of regularity between the past, present, and future. However, given the possible permutations of physical histories, the majority are mostly […]
If the infinite universe critique holds, then not only does it undermine ID, but every huckster, conman, and scam artist will have a field day.
The standard argument against free will is that it is incoherent. It claims that a free agent must either be determined or non-determined. If the free agent is determined, then it cannot be responsible for its choices. On the other hand, if it is non-determined, then its choices are random and uncontrolled. Neither case preserves […]
