Only billions, not trillions, NASA now says.
Science has been so successful explaining other phenomena in terms of purely unintelligent natural forces, why should evolution be so different? That is the primary argument against intelligent design, and it is the reason that Darwinism, an extremely implausible theory which becomes even more implausible with every new biological and biochemical discovery—but the best theory Read More…
He hopes to address common science, philosophy, and faith issues.
Why he left (the non-conspiracy version): My PhD project focused on the “Pongola Supergroup,” a major section of supracrustal rocks in southeastern South Africa (Kwazulu-Natal and Mpumalanga provinces) and southern Swaziland, aged ~2.8 – 3.0 billion years old.
Suffice to say, this project involved months and even years of fieldwork, lab work, data analysis, and writeup. Like most PhDs, mine had its ups and downs, complete with excitement, fun, blood, sweat, tears, near-madness, sheer terror, and utter boredom.
Maybe it’s not the eel, who remains stupid about everything else. It is intelligence in nature. Wallace was right.
Why was the racists’ idea about brain size considered at all? Materialism does that to people and King was right to see it and call it out.
One can’t help wondering what the notion of many additional dimensions is supposed to do. … By now, you probably get the picture. The side door to “Anything we want to believe is true.”
There is no scientific evidence for a multiverse. There are a large number of intellectuals who need it to be true. At one time, there was a large number of similar people who needed witchcraft to be true.
Some of us think mathematics is the best argument for God available.
Thank you to the UD News desk for putting up From Closer To Truth: Is Mathematics Invented Or Discovered? In this video public intellectual Robert Lawrence Kuhn interviews mathematicians and philosophers regarding the titular question. The most profound statement in the video does not address the question. It addresses the current cultural constraints on the Read More…
In short, Darwinism is a crock but they can’t, of course, say that.
Featuring interviews with Roger Penrose, Mark Balaguer, Gregory Chaitin, Stephen Wolfram, and Frank Wilczek.
Those [theories] that haven’t been disproven yet are the ones that are the least lumpy. Let’s just say that the data are consistent with there being no dark matter lumps at all.
Maybe some of us (yer news writer, for one) have been unkind to Avi Loeb, the Harvard astronomer who continues to insist that space debris Oumuamua is an extraterrestrial lightsail. Anyway, at 29:06 in this vid, Loeb says “nature does not produce such things.” We’re told Loeb is using a design filter like design theorist Read More…
So much intelligence in nature. Why couldn’t some of it be organized to make them buzz off?
