And why it might not really matter in the long run As Jonathan Wells, author of author of The Myth of Junk DNA , tells it at Evolution News & Views(March 9): Berkman and Plutzer’s findings were reported in the March 6 issue of Science. The report was accompanied by a photo of a biology […]

Actually, Tyson can say pretty much whatever he wants about anyone or any group he chooses; that’s what being a science celeb means these days.

In other news, no one in North America is trying to shoot him. We just think he is dumb and boring.

He is demonstrating, it seems, that any number can play at that “science denial” game.
BA77’s observation: “many influential people in academia simply don’t want Design to be true no matter what evidence . . .”

The inimitable BA77 observes: I [used] to think that if ID could only get its evidence to the right people in the right places then they would change their mind about Darwinian evolution and we would have a fundamental ‘paradigm shift’ from the ‘top down’. But after a few years of banging my head on […]

The flattening of information hierarchies often means that small, independent outfits can draw level with or surge ahead of major approved sources of information.

“Evolution,” used this way, = “magic” and we were all told not to believe in magic.

You must be a student at the University of British Columbia, but this may spark some ideas elsewhere as well.

Textbook publishing is in the hands of a few conglomerates, scalping the property tax payer who is obliged to support the compulsory public school systems, however bad. The Darwin lobby helps prevent any serious evaluation of what’s in the biology books vs. what’s in reality.

Increasingly generic language = there is less and less of a fit between Darwin’s followers views and the realities of biology, as known today. So it would not take much to offend them.

Good day, my name is JoeG and I would like to get something out in the open and hopefully have it become fully understood by everyone. For decades I have been debating against evolutionism and for decades I have been told that my position is “anti-evolution.” I found that strange because my position allows for […]
ID Foundations, 22: What about evolutionary trees of descent and homologies? (An answer to Jaceli123’s presentation of a typical icon of evolution . . . )
As has been noted, sometimes people come to UD looking for answers to questions about what they have been taught regarding “Evolution”; typically in the context of indoctrination under the Lewontinian ideological a priori materialism that he outlined thusly in his infamous 1997 NYRB article: [T]he problem is to get [the general public] to reject […]
“Who de cap fit, let ‘im wear it . . . ” — a (preliminary) collection of seen-in-the-wild Darwinist fever swamp fallacies
I am thinking it is time we began a collection of Darwinist fever swamp fallacies found in the wild. (Make sure to get your Malaria shot before going there . . . ) After the now standard “your’e a quote miner” false accusation and the “it’s a Gish galloper” smear of a man not present […]
The famous Feynman Lectures on Physics hosted free for all by Caltech (and taking a peek at entropy . . . )

Christmas is early this year. Here are the famous Feynman Lectures on Physics (Vol II is forthcoming) hosted for free by Caltech. A useful point of reference for one and all. Just for fun, note here on on entropy, irreversibility and the rise of disorder: Where does irreversibility come from? It does not come from […]
Ran across this Biola video lecture (in course BB ST 450) on scientism in a thread from a few months back, HT BA77 as usual. I think it is well worth pondering: embedded by Embedded VideoYouTube Direkt So, thoughts? END

Our old friend PZ Myers holds school boards in utter contempt. In a recent blog post at his widely followed Pharyngula blog site, he takes contemptuous pot shots at the Springboro, OH School Board for having the audacity to even consider a “critical thinking” policy in the curriculum. The Springboro Community City School District is […]
The ghost of William Paley says his piece in reply to Darwin and successors, on the commonly dismissed “watch found in the field” argument
Over at the KF blog, we have recently been entertaining some ghosts from our civilisation’s past, who are concerned about its present and now sadly likely future in light of the sad history recorded in Acts 27, of a sea voyage to Rome gone disastrously wrong because the voyagers were manipulated into venturing back out […]
