Four Nails in Darwin’s Coffin Premieres Tomorrow Night at SMU

Tomorrow night four new arguments against Darwin’s theory will be revealed before an audience at Southern Methodist University. Scientists from Discovery Institute and Biologic Institute are already heading down to Dallas for the event, where they’ll present new evidence against Darwinian evolution after a free screening of the film Darwin’s Dilemma. Presenting tomorrow night are: Molecular biologist Douglas Axe Evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg Molecular and cell biologist Jonathan Wells, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design Philosopher of science Stephen Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design If you’re in the area, this is your chance to bring your questions, as they’ll engage in a Q & A session Read More ›

Four Nails in Darwin’s Coffin

More than a century ago, Charles Darwin thought he had explained away the evidence for intelligent design in biology. But now new evidence from molecular biology, genetics, and related fields are raising four important challenges to the claim that complex biological life is the result of an undirected process of natural selection acting on random mutations. Learn about these “4 nails in Darwin’s coffin” at this FREE event. Bring your questions! Sponsored by PULSE and Victory Campus Ministries, SMU. For more information, email or call 214-528-7343.

Ames Tribune Not Interested in News

The Ames Tribune editorial today tries to make out that Discovery Institute is more interested in headlines than in truth. Ironic, coming from a news organization that hasn’t even reported all of the news on this story. The piece sounds like it was ghost-written by the press office at ISU (or at least is based on ISU’s talking points). The news at the press conference this week was that a hostile work environment was created at ISU for Dr. Gonzalez — and then covered up by his colleagues, his department, the university, and now the Board of Regents. This thing stinks from top to bottom. That’s a big story. They tried to cover up what amounts to a crime — Read More ›

Mac Johnson Misses the Mark

Dear Human Events: If Mac Johnson is to be believed, intelligent design (ID) advocates are Neanderthals–their theory “dressed up in a lab coat and a mail order Ph.D.” [“Intelligent Design, and Other Dumb Ideas,” November 15] Mr. Johnson regurgitates the tired falsity of Darwinists everywhere. Leading ID advocates have reputable Ph.D.s, and avid readers of Human Events (HE) know as much. Michael Behe does biochemical research with his University of Pennsylvania Ph.D.; Jonathan Wells does biological research with his U.C. Berkeley Ph.D.; Stephen Meyer researches the history and philosophy of science with his Cambridge University Ph.D.; etc. This kind of argument is called “poisoning the well.” That is, HE readers are supposed to dismiss ID scientists because they are not Read More ›
