Peer review is touted as a demonstration of the self-critical nature of science. But it is a human system. Everybody involved brings prejudices, misunderstandings and gaps in knowledge, so no one should be surprised that peer review is often biased and inefficient. It is occasionally corrupt, sometimes a charade, an open temptation to plagiarists. Even with the best of intentions, how and whether peer review identifies high-quality science is unknown. It is, in short, unscientific. — Drummond Rennie, Nature 7/07/16
I came across your website by accident about 4 months ago and look at it every day. About 8 months ago I was reading a letter to the editor of the Seattle Times that was written by a staunch ‘anti-Creationist’ and it sparked my interest enough to research the topic and within a week I was yelling, ‘my whole life’s education has been a lie!!!’ I’ve put more study into Biblical Creation in the last 8 months than any other topic in my life... Resources like your website help the rest of us at the ‘grassroots level’ drum up interest in the subject. And regardless of what the major media says: Creationism is spreading like wildfire, so please keep your website going to help fan the flames. — an Air Force Academy graduate and officer
The conclusion? We should perhaps learn the lesson of Darwinism: a ‘universal’ mechanism of adaptation says little in itself about how a particular feature got to be the way it is, or about how it works. This truth has dawned on physicists too: universal equations are all very well, but the world actually consists of particular solutions, and these are generally the result of contingent history. One size does not always fit all. — Nature, Editorial, 14 April 2011
Babbage was a man trapped in the wrong century, because he envisioned not the first ice cube maker, but the first general purpose computer– in 1832! This is one of history’s classic “if only” stories. If only Babbage had finished it, if only the British government had approved the funding he needed, then computers might have been household items a century earlier. Despite this failure, Charles Babbage did succeed in many things, and was always strong in his Christian faith during a period of tremendous intellectual and social change in Britain.
Like some federal official holding a press conference after a disaster, a Harvard paleontologist has tackled the unenviable job of explaining what Darwin called the most severe challenge that could be levied against his theory: the fossil record. The challenge starts with a bang…
A key ‘proof’ of evolution in action falls as scientists discover that pathogens don’t invent resistance genes; they share them.
“Men, why are you doing these things? We are also men of the same nature as you, and preach the gospel to you that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. In the generations gone by He permitted all the nations to go their own ways; and yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” — Paul and Barnabas in Lystra, Acts 14:15b-17
