Interview with pioneer Michael Denton

Nature's Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe
Evolution: A Theory In Crisis

Here, at Telic Thoughts (posted June 17, 2011) is an interview (vid) with University of Otago biochemist Michael Denton. Not an ID guy exactly, he wrote Evolution: A theory in crisis (1986) and Nature’s Destiny (2002), providing a comprehensive look at evolution without Darwinism. A floodlight at last.

Many people first became interested in the fundamental question – Darwinism and “science” vs. evidence and real science – from reading Denton – including Phillip Johnson, who first brought the ID guys together to ask the key question … and so now? And so here we are now.

It’s interesting that when Denton’s books came out, all reviewers supposed that it was their job to trash them, so the older official Amazon reviews from happy, confident, unquestioning Darwin serfs make interesting reading in the light of subsequent events.

Here is a print interview.

Here are a few more, fairly, recent videos of Michael Denton: Michael Denton – Mathematical Truths Are Transcendent And Beautiful – Square root of -1 is built into the fabric of reality – video http://www.metacafe.com/watch/4003918" Michael Denton - We Are Stardust - Uncanny Balance Of The Elements - Fred Hoyle Atheist to Deist/Theist - video http://www.metacafe.com/watch/4003877 bornagain77
It was Michael Denton's first book, recommended to me by a friend, that made me realize, "Unholy crap, this Darwinism stuff is junk science, completely illogical, and empirically and mathematically unsupportable. It is fantasy of the highest order for anyone with a genuinely scientific interest in how stuff really works." To a great extent, Michael Denton helped rescue me from the hideous, destructive depths of atheistic nihilism, and the utter irrationality and scientific idiocy of a materialistic worldview. Thank God for Michael Denton. GilDodgen
Denton's book is definitely on my top ten list. Mung
