Will Hardcore Scientism Warm Up to Artificial Religion?

Live Science reported on a series of papers presented in Washington on the subject of science and religion.  One might have expected warfare from the title, “God and Science Collide in Nation’s Capital”; indeed, Robin Lloyd portrayed the usual take-no-prisoners attitude of some scientists: “Scientists hate God.  Or find God very disturbing.  In fact, modern […]

Human Mind Outwits Darwinian Models

Evolutionists struggle to explain complex human behaviors in Darwinian terms. Sure, corporate squabbles can seem like survival of the fittest, but humans also sacrifice for people they don’t even know and do other weird, un-Darwinian things. In Darwinism, selfishness rules. How does cooperative and altruistic behavior arise from selfish motives? Here are some of the recent attempts to reconcile observations with a theory in which selfishness is key.

Darwinian Ethics Launch Unexplored Blessings or Curses

For a theory ostensibly restricted to biology, evolution sure has a lot of supporters interested in politics and ethics.  Look at what leading Darwinists are promoting.  Some of them are rushing headlong where angels fear to tread.  Where they will end up is anyone’s guess.  Their potential for changing life, culture, religion, education – even […]

Darwinism and Logic: How Strong a Grip?

Science and logic are inseparable.  Whether one approaches the study of nature from reason (rationalism) or evidence (empiricism), logical inferences and deductions are essential for understanding – or for claiming one’s scientific work produces understanding.  When it comes to the reigning evolutionary perspective, though, how can a blind, chancy process like evolution produce reason, laws […]

Psychology Without Darwin

Can psychology kick the Darwin habit?  For years it has been conventional to express all human actions in Darwinian terms.  We struggle with city life, for instance, because we evolved to hunt prey in the savannah – not the Georgia kind, but the African plains where we first climbed down from the trees to walk […]

How to Address an Alien

How would you like this job: your assignment is to be the speechwriter for planet earth.  You are to figure out what our first message is to the aliens – to give them a good first impression as we introduce the human species to the galactic community.  “No kidding? What does it pay?”     […]

The Fruits of Two Worldviews

Of all the arenas of state-sponsored genocides of the 20th century, the Killing Fields of Cambodia were among the most disturbing.  There, in a massive social engineering project, a radical communist government systematically starved, tortured and murdered nearly two million people with the brutal efficiency of an assembly line operation.  The regime outlawed all religions.  […]

Explorer 1 Chief Discovers Design

On this day 50 years ago, America entered the space race.  On January 31, 1958, America gave its answer to Sputnik: a civilian satellite named Explorer 1.  Within a few hours of the time of day these words are being written, von Braun’s Jupiter-C rocket at Cape Canaveral, Florida, successfully launched a JPL satellite into […]

A Tale of Two Cosmic Cities

Two organizations have prepared curricula presenting grand panoramas of cosmic history.  Each is divided into seven modules – but that is where any similarity ends.  One is a completely materialistic and evolutionary view composed by scientists and educators from NASA and the federal government and major academic institutions and corporations.  The other is a completely […]
