I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by men who were inspired. I study the Bible daily....
All my discoveries have been made in an answer to prayer. — Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727), to many the greatest scientist of all time
Creation Evolution Headlines is my favorite website on intelligent design and Darwinism. This is both due to your being always on the cutting edge of all the latest research relevant to the debate over evolution, as well as due to your soberness coupled with your uncompromising stand against Darwinism. Your work is invaluable. Please keep it up all costs. — founder of the Danish Society for Intelligent Design
When I teach medical students, they're more interested in the rare people who are born with birth defects, They want to understand embryology so they understand how things go awry, but I'm more interested in the fact that for everyone sitting in my classroom—all 200 of those medical students and dental students—it went right! And every one of them has a heart on the left side and every one of them has two kidneys, and how the heck do you do that? — Clifford Tabin, PhysOrg 9/24/13
William Thomson, known by the more familiar title “Lord Kelvin,” was the most eminent scientist of his day in the British Isles. Professor of mathematics and natural philosophy at the University of Glasgow in Scotland for over 50 years, Lord Kelvin was largely responsible for the rise of engineering, taking the meteoric discoveries being made by 19th century scientists to practical uses for man. A strong Bible believer and creationist, he gave Charles Darwin headaches with scientific arguments he and his “Darwinian fraternity” could not answer about the age of the earth. His strong credentials made him a formidable foe to the Darwinists, yet they could not answer his science or disparage his honor. Charles Darwin himself died without ever getting a credible comeback argument. Largely dismissed today, Thomson’s arguments deserve to be understood correctly. His philosophy of science would also do much to undermine the rampant storytelling by today’s materialistic Darwinians.
The effects of Darwinism go far beyond biology. On the bicentenary of Henry David Thoreau, a historian traces his fall from grace into Darwinian materialism.
The key to design in manufacturing is optimization – hitting the “sweet spot” between competing interests. It’s not always possible to have all the elements of a product be ideal. A laptop computer, for instance, can’t have an extra-large monitor and simultaneously have long battery life and compact design. A muscle car cannot be expected to have the best gas mileage. In the heyday of “faster, better, cheaper” spacecraft, engineers often joked, “pick any two.” In the same way, living cells have to optimize their operations. A couple of recent papers explore how they find that sweet spot.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. (Isaiah 40:28)
