Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

Some Good News for Biology Students


Evolutionists have complained bitterly that some states are requiring biology classes to present evolution from a theory-neutral perspective–that is, the evidence should be presented without first presenting evolution as true. And evolutionists have mounted an offensive against such efforts.  Read more

Excellent. The march of truth and freedom of inquiry advances. Evolution is not a fact but a untested hypothesis understood by very few people. There is a great Christian belief that the origin of things is explained in the bible. In schools possessed by the american people there must be intellectual freedom to attack or assert any idea in any subject taught. The censorship of creationism(s) and its criticisms is to be sent to the ashheap of history. If evolutionism can't make its case on evidence then it should fold up its tents. As a biblical creationist I welcome evolution showing folks its best points. Not just saying they know better as authorities. Robert Byers
C. Hunter, how about this story? http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=146369 Intelligent design or intelligent fraud? Frost122585
Works fine for me BA77. IRQ Conflict
Collin, that's strange. I also got the blog linked through my bornagain77 handle; All you should have to do is click on bornagain77 and it should take you to the site. Does anyone else have this problem? bornagain77
The let there be light link didn't work for me for some reason. Collin
Collin , I try to keep the links organized on this link: Let There Be Light: http://lettherebelight-77.blogspot.com/ But frankly, there is SOOOOOOO much evidence against an evolutionary-materialistic-atheistic worldview, I think it would take the entire staff of the online Britannica Encyclopedia company to properly organize it: http://www.britannica.com/ Hey Collin maybe if we can get the people at Wikipedia to stop attacking ID proponents we can get them to help us. Then again, come to think of it, I would rather negotiate with Iran to get them to peacefully give up trying to build the bomb, since I'd probably have much better luck of success. bornagain77
Born Again, Do you have a blog? You should keep all of your links on a drudgereport-like page or something. Collin
Here is a video, though a bit dated (2006) touches directly on this "theory neutral" subject: Michael Shermer vs. Jonathan Wells (3 of 7) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez1R4ZZf4dk (4 of 7) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-_IRA4YVx4 bornagain77
I've seen one of Ken Miller's presentations/debates in which he has a chart of proposed whale evolution with dotted lines drawn on it, between drastically different species, and David Berlinski asked him exactly who drew the dotted lines on the chart? The point is that that chart with the artificially imposed dotted lines drawn on it is "science" for Ken Miller, and with evolutionists, such as Miller writing many of the textbooks, more science to them means more misleading "charts" like the whale chart he presented to the debate audience, that in reality have no basis in what the fossil record looks like.

Stephen Jay Gould "Why, if species have descended from other species by fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms? Why is not all nature in confusion, instead of the species being, as we see them, well defined? But, as by this theory innumerable transitional forms must have existed, why do we not find them embedded in countless numbers in the crust of the earth? But in the intermediate region, having intermediate conditions of life, why do we not now find closely-linking intermediate varieties?" Charles Darwin - Origin Of Species bornagain77
