Animal Engineering Is Not Just a Metaphor
October 10, 2013
Some evolutionists complain that talk of molecular machines and engineered systems in the living world is a misleading figure of speech. Why, then, do human engineers seek to reverse-engineer them?
Does Physics Drive Evolution?
October 8, 2013
Some recent evolutionary papers appear to make physical laws not just constraints on natural selection, but guiding hands that build optimal designs.
Global Flood OK if Proposed by Evolutionists
October 4, 2013
Another attempt to explain the Cambrian explosion proposes a global flood that tapped the capacity of simple animals to evolve new body plans suddenly.
Evolutionists Move Dates Around Often: Is It Progress?
