Ah yes. Mutterings about the need for censorship. When we don’t have a reasonable response to a troubling topic, first, we self-censor. Then we censor anyone who raises it. Sure, guys. That’ll work. The questions are still there but only for those capable of addressing them.
It sounds like he really believes it. Well that might be the world as Martin Rees needs to see it.
Suzan Mazur notes that the Khan Academy has tended to promote natural selection as “evolution” generally.
That’s the claim at RealClearScience and, wouldn’t you know, Darwin doubters are supposedly to blame.
He was always very much their sort of guy; one wonders what took them so long. It seems as though Templeton is returning to an earlier approach here. Collins is definitely a God Squad type, having held the right positions. There was a middle period when some of their awards gave pause for thought
We can tell what’s wrong with science today when we try to take Siegel’s dead-serious explanation of what he thinks a theory in science is and apply it to: Darwinian evolution theory
And starts to acknowledge some harsh realities that most Darwinists drown in a word salad of obfuscation.
Cepelewicz: The very existence of organelles in these bacteria, coupled with intriguing parallels to the more familiar ones that characterize eukaryotes, has prompted scientists to revise how they think about the evolution of cellular complexity — all while offering new ways to probe the basic principles that underlie it.
They seem to have grasped that human language cannot be accounted for in Darwinian terms and they are mad about it. But it’s a fact.
Standard evolutionary theory (usually known as Darwinism) makes it easier for an incurious teacher to stumble from one school year to the next. No wonder educrats hate people like Paul Nelson for messing with it, right or wrong.
In Scandinavia, ID-related activity is also increasing. The Danish ID organization Origo is just about to release a translation of Dr. Lee Spetner’s The Evolution Revolution and currently a translation of Dr. Michael Behe’s Darwin Devolves is also in progress, with the release expected in 2021.
Researchers: Our calculations reveal an enigmatic in-built self-preserving organization of the genetic code that averts disruptive changes at the physicochemical properties level.
As noted earlier, in any Darwinian scheme, someone must be co-opted as the subhuman in order for history to have a beginning, so it’s no surprise that it helped fuel scientific racism.
If consciousness is intrinsic to the nature of the universe, to say that consciousness evolved would be like saying that photons evolved: “The photon has the characteristics it does in order to maximize its chances of survival and passing on its genes.” Um, let’s go back to the top of the page, shall we? …
The serial sex offender had an office at Harvard and visited dozens of times. It was likely a way Epstein was currying influence with Harvard, the way he did with many science notables. Darwinism was a sure bet. The Washington Post offers a few more details.
