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 […]

National Geographic Waffles on Gospel of Judas

Last year, National Geographic published, in its magazine and on a TV special, a translation of the Gnostic “Gospel of Judas” that suggested Judas was a noble character who was only obeying orders from Jesus (see 04/09/2006).  The interpretation hinged on certain words and phrases in the text: for example, whether the Greek word daimon […]

Darwin Claus Becomes Icon of Winter Solstice

Evolution News has a picture of Darwin as Santa Claus.  They got the picture from a Winter Solstice card sent among atheists at Winter Solstice luncheons that are springing up around the country.  The caption on the card states, “evolve your beliefs.” The historic St. Nicholas of Patara, a Christian altruist, would be appalled at […]

Nehemiah’s Wall Found

Earlier this month, archaeologist Eilat Mazar found remnants of an ancient wall on the old city of David she believes is a remnant of the wall built by Nehemiah in 445 BC (see Nehemiah 3-6 that describes the project in detail).  This was reported on the Bible Places blog, with a link to The Trumpet […]

Science Journals Rally Anti-ID Army

Language in science journals is typically restrained, genteel and erudite.  Editorials value diversity and inclusion, rarely painting any issue black or white.  There are two issues, though, that let loose the raging bull: (1) policies that jeopardize funding, and (2) creationism.  As illustrations of reactions to the latter, consider two articles this week that snort […]

Modern Nazi Killer Bears Darwin’s Standard

Another terrible school shooting imitating the Columbine rampage has occurred, this time in Finland (see CNN).  Before killing eight students and himself, the 18-year-old murderer stated in a rambling note, “I am prepared to fight and die for my cause.  I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human […]

Book: Intelligent Design Argument Turns Leading Atheist to God

“There is a God,” announces a former leading atheist on the cover of his new book.  Antony Flew changed his mind a few years ago partly because of the design argument: the fine-tuning of the universe, according to the blurb on Amazon.com.  New arguments by philosophical theists like Alvin Plantinga and Richard Swinburne also played […]

Jewish First Temple Period Uncovered

Artifacts dating from the First Temple period have been found in trenches illegally dug by Muslims on the Temple Mount: for the story, see the Jerusalem Post, the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Bible Places.  Dr. Leen Ritmeyer has diagrams of where the artifacts relate to the Temple position in his Ritmeyer Blog.   […]

Sweden Bans Creationism

Creationism and intelligent design are being banned in Swedish schools, reported the English version of the Swedish news source, The Local.  Intelligent design (ID) makes no claim about the Creator, but only the detectability of design; nevertheless, both were banned equally.     This may not be unexpected after the Council of Europe resolution last […]
