Evolution needs to associate itself with something factual, whereas gravity has no such need.
The fact that evolution is both important and “controversial” is one reason we strongly favor teaching it thoroughly in high school biology classes.
Keep repeating to yourself: “There is no controversy over evolution, there is no controversy over evolution, there is no controversy over evolution…”
Evolution activist and marine biologist Wesley Elsberry hypocritically charges mathematician and ID advocate Granville Sewell with “self-plagiarism” and “deliberate gaming of the [academic publication] system.” What’s hypocritical about the charge? Well, recently in the journal Synthese, Elsberry himself self-plagiarized his own prior work. I don’t care if Wesley Elsberry “plagiarizes” himself, if that’s even the […]

From occasionally perusing the BioLogos website, I’ve come to realize that talk about holiness and humility and love often accompanies some kind of innuendo or slur.
Elsberry is well known for his harsh and highly personal style of attack.
Mathematician and intelligent design supporter Granville Sewell has posted an article, entitled “How Evolution Will Be Taught Someday,” where he makes some interesting predictions about the future state of teaching science. He asks whether intelligent design will be taught and says, “probably not in my lifetime.” In Sewell’s view, “in the not-too-distant future, biology texts […]
