If the pop-culture is starting to understand the gross inadequacies of Neo-Darwinism to explain the origins and the diversity of life in this universe, perhaps a paradigm shift is closer than we think.

Jason Rosenhouse has been writing an series of reports on the 2005 Creation Mega Conference that took place last week. I refer readers specifically to his latest report (#5) on the talk of Werner Gitt, who is the author of In the Beginning Was Information. In reading that book, I had many of the same […]

Many Darwinists are now finding that it no longer suits them to be called “Darwinists.” But, as we all know, calling a tail a leg doesn’t change that fact that a dog still only has four legs. Likewise, backing away from standard terminology and assigning to themselves other labels doesn’t change the fact that most […]
After recently reporting about Niall Shanks’s rising star on this blog (here), I ran across this article about his new position at Wichita State University: go here for the article. For all my disagreements with him, he’s a nice guy and I wish him well in his new post. In the article, note the reference […]

Below are two emails forwarded to me from a friend of mine along with his commentary. To protect my friend, I’ve given all the individuals here pseudonyms. My friend here is “Kevin Nichols.” He’s a Ph.D. high school biology teacher who supports ID. His principal is “Lauren Long.” And the parent opposing ID is “Serge […]
Kenneth Miller, Francisco Ayala, and Lawrence Krauss have decided to go to the top, asking Pope Benedict XVI to clarify his views on evolution and design.
It’s gratifying to see that ID is helping people make careers and bring home the bacon. Robert Pennock is happily ensconced at Michigan State University for criticizing ID. Barbara Forrest was promoted to full professor at South Eastern Louisiana State University for her work debunking ID. And most recently Niall Shanks moved from East Tennessee […]
The Protein Society’s upcoming big annual meeting (July 30 to August 3, 2005) has a session that should give proponents of unintelligent evolution pause and proponents of intelligent design courage:
Ahmed K. Sultan Salem’s “The Non-Science of Intelligent Design” is probably the most ambivalent article about ID that I’ve ever read. Here’s a sample:
Knowing how the good Cardinal’s words will be misused by the enemies of science in our country, it is important to set the record straight.
Signs of Intelligence? What the neo-Darwinists don’t understand about theories of Intelligent Design by Isaac Constantine
The charge is often made that ID constitutes an argument from ignorance (a charge I’ve shown to be false here). But a case can be made that conventional evolutionary theory, insofar as it tries to explain macroevolutionary changes, itself constitutes an argument from ignorance. In Gary Jason’s book Critical Thinking (p. 133), he characterizes the […]
Just when you thought the soap opera that is Baylor was in its last season, here they come up with some priceless new material. The following piece of investigative reporting appeared today on the front page of the Waco Trib. I’d like to nominate it for a Pulitzer Prize. Also, I’m awaiting further investigation to […]
