An integrated encyclopedia of DNA elements in the human genome This is just one of many scientific papers that have come out as a result of the ENCODE (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) project discovering functions in the “non-coding” region of human DNA. ID theorist have long disputed the Darwinian propaganda of 98% similarity of chimps [...]
I am looking forward to watching Darwin’s Dilemma.
In many discussions across the blogoshere about the existence of God or supernatural entities, the claim is often made that there’s no reason to think that such things exist because there simply is “no evidence”. Those who do think such entities exist are either “delusional” a la Richard Dawkins, or holding such beliefs “without evidence”. [...]
I’ve recently had the “privilege” of discussing some of the implications of so-called methodological naturalism (MN) on one or two blogs. For Darwinists, especially Darwinists who take philosophical naturalism (PN) as true, MN is an absolute necessity for scientific practice. Thus MN becomes an extension of PN, and has the effect of making science a [...]
While not every Darwinist is an atheist, just about every atheist is a Darwinist. So don’t tell me that there is no connection between ID, Darwinism and Atheism. Thank you to EN&V for bringing this bigotry to our attention and another demonstration of atheist morality. Chronicle of Higher Education Unearths New Evidence in Support of [...]
Isn’t it interesting that 19th century (the great “death of God” era) Darwinian “science” made it possible for Dawkins to become an intellectually fulfilled atheist, but that late 20th century science has made faith and theism more rational and reasonable than ever before in human history (in my opinion)? It’s an interesting turn of events. [...]
Dear Teleological Folks, I posted the following over at UncommonDescent.com but it is undoubtedly long lost in the comments. I thought it might be of interest here. As some of you may know, I used to be a militant, Dawkins-style atheist. All that changed in 1994 after I bought my five-year-old daughter a cartoon video [...]
Sal’s recent OP about setting up a YC discussion blog got me thinking about the influence and role that philosophical presuppositions play in how one views science and scientific findings, or even in how one defines what science is. As I follow discussion after discussion on various blogsites regarding YEC v OEC v Naturalism, it [...]
This thread has changed from the original title and the OP deleted due to the nature of the comments.
A great article from the UK supporting ID. Buggs, who holds a DPhil in plant ecology and evolution from the University of Oxford and sits on the scientific panel of Truth in Science, Finally, Randerson claims that ID is “pure religion”. In fact, ID is a logical inference, based on data gathered from the natural [...]
