The Big Bang and fine-tuning are not challenged fr lack of evidence but because they are unpopular evidence.

Research out of Israel continues to hammer away at the once powerful proof text for evolution, that our retina is one big kludge given that the photocells were obviously installed backwards. Not only that, but to add insult to injury, the resulting neuron wire bundle had to go somewhere, and the result was a blind spot in […]

News here has noticed the trend, and also the growing impatience with the traditional rules of science that constrain their fantasies.

MSM hacks have zero interest in science as such. If they did, they would be all over any number of “science-based” scams and the ongoing scandal of peer review.

NB: RDM paper, here In the current VJT discussion thread on What Evidence is, RD Miksa asks a telling question (slightly adjusted for readability) of naturalistic hyperskeptics: RDM, 25: . . . the ironic thing to note in terms of comments from the anti-super-naturalist side is how they fail to realize that their very own […]

Professor Jerry Coyne has written a post titled, Ken Ham vs. Dawkins: On the nature of science and physical law, in which he criticizes Ken Ham’s claim that evolution is a “historical” science, dealing with events that can’t be observed, and hence can’t be verified. Coyne contends that “there is no distinction between historical science […]

The metaphysical naturalist basis of his quest may have precluded his examining the “cash value” of Darwinism in the project.

They need to create the impression that Walker must be a dunce if he doesn’t “believe” whatever studio blowdrys “believe” about evolution.

Yes, because the mood is seeping into the sciences. A full professor now claims not to know what evidence is.

There has been some discussion about what a politician should say when asked by a reporter, Do you believe in evolution? My response would be: Of course! Everyone with an IQ above room temperature, who isn’t a science denier, knows that it is an established scientific fact, supported by all the evidence, not to mention […]

A critical question is, would the “separate species” have genuinely different values from what we know of typical humans?

On another thread we have been discussing abiogenesis in particular, but there was also some discussion about the evolution of an irreducibly complex system. Commenter CHartsil indicated that “we actually watched an IC system evolve” in reference to Lenski’s E. coli research. At my request, he has posted a brief summary of the research and […]
