Watch William Lane Craig and Lawrence Krauss go at it tonight in what’s destined to be a great debate over the existence of God — then stay tuned to watch him argue with Sam Harris next week.

Proponents of neo-Darwinian evolution have their modern day epicycles to attempt to explain why data often runs counter to the tree of life hypothesis.

Once thought to be “junk,” or functionless vestiges of once-protein-coding-genes which have, through the course of evolutionary history, mutated to a state of non-functionality, the research documents that these lincRNAs have an extremely important — even crucial — role with respect to the determination of cellular identity.
Watch Stephen Meyer explain the scientific evidence that challenges Darwin’s theory and supports intelligent design in this special TV series.
We’ve heard of re-writing history, but Lauri Lebo takes it to a whole new level in her fight against objectivity in journalism.
