But why should we believe him rather than the supporters of longtime (now retired) New York Times writer, Nicholas Wade?

Everitt must feel intellectually secure about what he himself thinks if he can afford to make correct distinctions.

If everybody, even PZ Myers, is a creationist, nobody is.

What do you have to think these days to not be a creationist? (Note: Claiming creationists have cooties really doesn’t count any more.)

It is outrageous how people are just plain poaching the “creationist” brand.

Should we give Wade a tiny, hand-carved model of Noah’s Ark or something? We could get a Canadian to deliver it.

But as Campbell rightly notes, the issues were all different then and he can’t be dealt as a card to any player today.

Nye saw that stuff in his own mind, which makes it true and important (and possibly, someday, a subject of legislation).

Students who ask science professors certain questions will be the ones who’ll appreciate the weaknesses in various anti-ID or anti-creation theories. Preferably they’ll ask after they’ve gotten an “A” in the class, maybe even after they’ve gotten their diploma. The ideal IDist or creationist student can hopefully score in the 99th percentile on evolutionary tests, […]

My eyes popped out with this headline from none other than Darwin-loving, ID-despising, creationist-hating New Scientist: Tree of Bird Life Could Solve Noah’s Ark Problem 😯 GENETICS could help solve the Noah’s Ark problem: faced with limited space, which species do you save? Focusing on the most evolutionarily unique and ancient species could allow us […]

[Noah Opens in Theaters Tomorrow] There’s nothing quite so helpful as a fatwa and threats of a Christian boycott to create buzz in advance of a new movie. “Noah,” scheduled for its U.S. release on March 28, has become such a target. The United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain have banned the movie because it […]

John Nolte: shall we wring our hands when public school teachers use “taxpayer money” to pay the tuition for their child to attend a school that teaches Creationism?

If your science education is teaching you to think like Jeffrey Kluger wants, that’s one problem right there. We can wrap it.

A new discussion forum which I mentioned previously is now mostly operational. Forums serve a radically different function than blogs. Forums are great for exploring and developing ideas, whereas blogs are great for promoting ideas. This fact became evident when participants of the old ISCID and ARN forum left the forums and migrated to Pharyngula, […]

[This is an essay I wrote originally for a creationist audience which I cross posted at Insight and Inspiration from CEU (where comments are shut off, but comments are invited here at UD however). I post it here at UD unchanged because the ID community might be able to glean some useful information from it […]

UD is privileged to have occasional visits by radio show hosts like Jason Rennie, Bob Enyart, and now we can add to the list, Richard Walker. I’ve often said, ID needs to be marketed to the creationist community. This may seem surprising since many creationists already accept ID. But believing a claim isn’t the same […]

Now “Noah” star Russell Crowe is trying to reach a higher power, beseeching Pope Francis on Twitter to watch his upcoming biblical adventure, which is based on the Noah’s Ark story from the Book of Genesis.
Addressing the pontiff as “Dear Holy Father,” Crowe on Monday tweeted, “#Noah film. Screening?The message of the film is powerful , fascinating , resonant.”
Crowe followed up with a tweet aimed at his own 1.37 million followers, writing, “given his environmental focus/scholarly knowledge, trying to screen #Noah for Pope Francis.” Crowe also asked his followers to retweet his previous message.
Francis, who boasts 3.7 million Twitter followers (@Pontifex) and more importantly is the spiritual leader of the 1.1 billion Roman Catholics around the world, has not directly responded to Crowe’s tweets.
Compare the movie to this conceptual rendering at the Creation Museum:
