Two years ago, I started suggesting not only should the modern synthesis be dropped, I suggested an alternative (ID-friendly) paradigm that could be used in its place in evolutionary biology. This week, a near-identical concept was suggested by a major evolutionary biologist in a mainstream journal. I coined the term “evolutionary teleonomy” to refer to […]
I’ve found that a lot of people, including biologists, aren’t aware of the evidence for cell-directed mutations. Therefore, I did a video describing the evidence for this. Video here: It’s kind of long, but I try to cover most of the objections. I’ll have a second video covering more about how to use this information […]
One of my main criticisms of methodological naturalism is that the word “naturalism” seems to not have any real content. It merely means “whatever the author wants to include in science” and non-naturalism means “whatever the author doesn’t want to include in science”. This paper by Halvorson is a case in point. One of the […]
I’ve talked to a number of biologists, and it seems like there are a number of important facts that are left out of a standard biological education.
It is with a heavy heart that I let you all know that Terry Mirll, who was one of the first to write ID-oriented fiction, has passed.
Several years ago, we held a conference on the interaction between engineering, science, philosophy, and theology. The result of this was a book titled “Engineering and the Ultimate: An Interdisciplinary Investigation of Order and Design in Nature and Craft”. It is now available for half price at Amazon if anyone wants to pick up […]
Most people mistakenly think that Intelligent Design is anti-evolution. That is not correct. To understand Intelligent Design’s criticism of evolution, it is important to pinpoint specifically where we believe evolutionary biology made a wrong turn and why it matters.
In a recent Nature article, Five Ways to Fix Statistics, the overwhelming consensus of the authors were that science needs to incorporate more philosophy.
I often get questions about the immune system, because many in the Darwin lobby point to it as an example of “random mutations”. That is kind of a half-truth, but the full truth is so amazing that it needs to be told more often.
Denyse was kind enough to post a link to the first part of my article on why Algebra is an important subject for high-school and college students. Part 2 of my article is now available as well.
This is old news, but I only just learned about it, and I don’t think it was talked about when it happened. In 2006, the Ouachita Parish (i.e., county) School Board decided to allow a “teach the controversy” approach to science education. After the policy was enacted, the science teachers wrote a letter thanking the […]
The term “machine learning” has started to be thrown around everywhere. However, I just don’t get excited about it, myself.
In order to prepare ourselves for the upcoming solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, David Coppedge posted a YouTube video showing the Great Baja Eclipse of 1991 and people’s reactions to it.
I thought I’d let you all know that Jerry Bergman’s latest book, Fossil Forensics: Separating Fact from Fantasy in Paleontology has been holding steady as Amazon’s #1 Hot New Release for several weeks now.
One of the things that I find interesting from a design perspective is the existence of adaptive systems that don’t presently help them out. That is, they may have cellular response systems which help them in all sorts of scenarios which an ordinary individual is not subject to.
