The physical sciences, then, depend on the validity of logic just as much as metaphysics or mathematics. If popular thought feels ‘science’ to be different from all other kinds of knowledge because science is experimentally verifiable, popular thought is mistaken. Experimental verification is not a new kind of assurance coming in to supply the deficiencies of mere logic. We should therefore abandon the distinction between scientific and non-scientific thought. The proper distinction is between logical and non-logical thought. — C. S. Lewis, De Futilitate
I love your site! I **really** enjoy reading it for several specific reasons: 1. It uses the latest (as in this month!) research as a launch pad for opinion; for years I have searched for this from a creation science viewpoint, and now, I’ve found it. 2. You have balanced fun with this topic. This is hugely valuable! Smug Christianity is ugly, and I don’t perceive that attitude in your comments. 3. I enjoy the expansive breadth of scientific news that you cover. 4. I am not a trained scientist but I know evolutionary bologna/(boloney) when I see it; you help me to see it. I really appreciate this. — a computer technology salesman in Virginia
A theory which explained everything else in the whole universe but which made it impossible to believe that our thinking was valid would be utterly out of court. For that theory would itself have been reached by thinking, and if thinking is not valid that theory would, of course, be demolished. It would have destroyed its own credentials. It would be an argument which proved that no argument was sound—a proof that there are no such things as proofs. — C. S. Lewis, Miracles
James Irwin was not a scientist in a professional sense; he was an astronaut, and not just an astronaut, but one of the 12 people in history who has walked on the moon. But what is a scientist? If we mean by the word a seeker for truth about the universe and earth, Irwin qualifies more than most.
A key ‘proof’ of evolution in action falls as scientists discover that pathogens don’t invent resistance genes; they share them.
This entry from 12/22/2003 we have referenced often, because it illustrates how Darwin changed science into storytelling.
Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people's way. — Isaiah 57:14
