Collins refers to the “backward wiring” of the vertebrate eye, characterizing it as flawed from an engineering perspective.
Plastic-Eating Microbes — “Rapid Evolution” May Not Be Darwinian at All
Environmental scientists warn frequently that the world is drowning in plastic. Here is some unexpected good news.
How Should We Then Teach Evolution?
Students who learn the difficult but important skills of examining data are more likely to engage in learning that sets them up for future STEM success.
Measles “Hacking” the Body?
In previous articles I have discussed how biological organisms exhibit patterns that are highly analogous to computer programs written by humans.
Wired Magazine Makes Biological Design Inference
We are often told by Darwinists that design cannot be detected in biology. But an article entitled “Wired Science Reveals Secret Codes in Craig Venter’s Artificial Genome” reports that “Wired Science has ferreted out the secret amino acid messages contained in ‘watermarks’ that were embedded in the world’s first manmade bacterial genome, announced last week by the J. Craig Venter Institute.” In biochemical jargon, each amino acid is ascribed a letter. Thus, one can encode sequences of amino acids that effectively spell out words. (The IDEA logo has done this since 1999 by using a chain of 4 amino acids that spell out “I.D.E.A.”) These are the words that Wired‘s sleuths discovered in the “manmade” parts of the bacterial genome Read More ›
