Why do people like Hossenfelder feel they need to honor Darwinism’s rotting carcass?
Nelson: Now, you may think MN is unnecessary, or even unsound, for the practice of science.

Many of us try to stay well clear of the COVID crazy but this rabbi certainly speaks for many when he dares to question a bit of the crazy, shouting out a warning about “science”
The worst part of witch hunts in science is that they so often involve controversies over words without precise definitions,
The late Ravi Zacharias’s wildly popular encounter with an atheist scientist.
