International Scientific Discoveries Since Kitzmiller Which Support ID (Part III)

Part I of this series discussed two exciting papers which support the claims of intelligent design (ID), and in Part II, I discussed how the molecular data is failing to support Neo-Darwinian common descent with modification. This final post of a 3-part series recounting some interesting scientific discoveries reported since the Kitzmiller ruling will discuss […]

2006 Was a Busy Year in the Darwin vs. Design Evolution Debate

Over at ID The Future, Casey Luskin has a year-end interview with Access Research Network’s Dennis Wagner who has compiled a list of the top intelligent design stories of the past year. His list spans the globe and includes such highlights as: 60% of U.S. Medical Doctors Doubt Macroevolutionary Theory Fly Eye Important Blueprint for […]

TVW Selects Meyer-Ward Intelligent Design Debate for “Best of 2006”

TVW here in Washington state has chosen to rebroadcast Seattle’s Townhall debate on intelligent design between Discovery Instiute’s Stephen Meyer and University of Washington’s Peter Ward as part of their “Best of 2006.” For those who missed this debate, it is available on our website here. We debate. You decide.

International Scientific Discoveries Since Kitzmiller Which Support ID (Part II)

Part I of this series discussed two exciting papers which support the claims of intelligent design (ID). While ID is certainly compatible with common ancestry, molecular evidence against the Neo-Darwinian icon, “Darwin’s Tree of Life,” continues to mount. This paper will discuss how molecular data is posing great challenges to the Darwinist assumption that life […]

“Celebrating” Christmas at the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”

During the holiday season, many Americans take time to seriously and respectfully reflect on Judeo-Christian religious beliefs. Not so for one website, the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” (FSM), a pro-evolution satire against intelligent design. They exhibit no interest in treating Christian holidays with respect. To celebrate the season, they are selling Christmas cards […]

International Scientific Discoveries Since Kitzmiller Which Support ID (Part I)

It’s been just over a year since the Kitzmiller ruling, and over a series of 3 posts, I’d like to briefly highlight some scientific discoveries reported since that time: In November, 2006, a Nature article entitled, “It’s the junk that makes us human” reported that much non-coding (“junk”)-DNA may control gene expression, and be responsible […]

Congressional Report Exposes Federal Officials’ Contempt for Free Speech of Scientists Skeptical of Darwinian Evolution

Congress’s recent report documenting the harassment of evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg at the Smithsonian reveals a shameful lack of respect for the free speech rights of scientists skeptical of Darwinian evolution on the part of federal officials. It is important to emphasize that pro-Darwin officials at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) tried […]

University of Virginia Magazine Prints Abbreviated Pro-ID Letters

Last summer, 49 scientists (mostly biologists) from the University of Virginia co-authored a letter to University of Virginia (UVa) Magazine arguing that “[n]ot only does evolution clash with religious dogma, but it undermines the significance that some would like to give to the place of humans in the universe.” Both Salvador Cordova and I wrote […]

A year after Dover, the scientific debate over Darwin is as vigorous as ever

A year ago today, Judge John E. Jones issued his 139-page ruling denouncing intelligent design in the Kitzmiller v. Dover case. At the time, the ruling was hailed by defenders of Darwin’s theory as a knock-out blow against intelligent design and scientific skepticism of Darwin’s theory. What a difference a year makes. A year after […]
