Working as a medical doctor in Australia, I have been interested in whether there is detectable and definable design in nature for a long time. My intuition says yes. The intuition of others says no. An untiring skeptic of almost everything, I wanted to start an internet site where intelligent interchange could occur on issues of teleology. Spurred on by the initiative of others to distribute UMOL DVDs to all Aussie schools, we started an Intelligent Design interest group and launched idnet.com.au to inform those confused by our biased press.

Dr. Falk cites a counterexample: “Consider the generation of antibody diversity for example. When a bacterium invades the Read More…

A stunningly elegant solution to storing information

 Chromosomes have yet another level of complexity and are even better designed than previously thought.   Erez Lieberman-Aiden et al  By probing the three-dimensional architecture of whole genomes, the authors constructed spatial proximity maps of the human genome that confirm the presence of chromosome territories and the spatial proximity of small, gene-rich chromosomes. They identified an Read More…

New evidence for Darwin’s theory of evolution

The “fact” of Darwinian evolution finally has some support, or so they say at ScienceDaily This is a significant study, but what did they actually find? Darwinian Evolution can break complex productive genetic networks  resulting in “morphological degeneration”. “change recorded in both the fossil record and the genomes of living organisms  … shows  simultaneous molecular Read More…
