European and American Politicians Attack Creationism

Actions of political bodies on both sides of the Atlantic have revived questions about the roles of science, politics and religion in public discourse and policy.     The Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly voted 48 to 25 to accept a resolution denouncing creationism and intelligent design, according to European Observer and Reuters.  The non-binding […]

Some Christian Colleges Love Darwin More than Jesus

“If you love me, keep my commandments,” Jesus said.  He told his disciples to expect persecution.  He commanded them to take up their cross and follow him, explaining that as the world hated him, it would hate them.  Counting the cost, the early disciples did indeed love and follow him to the death.     […]

Are You a Glorified Ape?

Evolutionists seem in a bit of a quandary lately.  They are convinced that humans evolved from apes, but cannot deny the large cognitive gaps between humans and the alleged nearest ancestors, the great apes.  It’s not just a matter of IQ.  The social skills, language, reasoning, altruism and empathy humans express have no parallels in […]

Birds Eat Dark Moths, Therefore God Does Not Exist

Michael Majerus watched birds eat peppered moths from his window for seven years (06/25/2004), then drew his conclusions.  In a presentation to a science conference in Uppsala, Sweden on August 23, he said that the peppered moth story proves evolution, which means there is no supernatural being to save us, there is no second coming, […]

Hollywood Film to Expose Darwin Dogma

Darwin is going to get a surprise on his birthday next year.  Ben Stein is releasing a film on Feb. 12, 2008, entitled “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.”  The gift may not be what Darwin wants.  The press release subtitle asks, “Whatever happened to free speech?”  Apparently Premise Media decided to document the trend among Darwinists […]

The Simpsons Producer Treats Evolution as Fact

The TV cartoon The Simpsons was praised for its “greatness” in, of all places, the premiere scientific journal Nature.1  Michael Hopkin interviewed “Executive producer Al Jean, the show’s head writer and a Harvard mathematics graduate.”  One of the questions was, “One episode in which the show does take sides is the one in which Lisa […]

The War of the Museums

Some evolutionists have become very alarmed at the opening of the new Creation Museum in Kentucky (05/26/2007).  They are so alarmed, in fact, that they are using pro-Darwin museums to counter-attack.  Scientific American published a lengthy article on the war of the museums.     Elisabeth Landau quickly used terms to label creationism as pseudoscience: […]

Council of Europe Officially Condemns Creationism and I.D.

A lengthy and strident policy document was issued by the Council of Europe denouncing creationism.  The summary statement makes it clear there is no compromise possible, because “religious fundamentalists” are behind it, and that creationism and intelligent design must be firmly and unequivocally opposed.  Evolution, by contrast, is given supreme status as the explanation for […]

How Best to Propagate Darwin’’s “Science”

Two book reviews recently discussed the problem of “scientific illiteracy” in society, which the authors equated with doubts about Darwinian evolution.

Resisting Science, or Resisting Purposelessness?

Why do so many adults “resist science”?, asked Yale psychologists Paul Bloom and Deena Skolnick Weisberg in an essay on The Edge.  They argued that childhood common sense impressions lead to a teleological view of the world.  These impressions conflict with evolutionary ideas presented at school, but are reinforced by religious authorities.  The job of […]

Darwinists Combat Creation Displays in Advance

Even before opening day, pro-evolution groups are launching pre-emptive strikes against a new $27 million creation museum in Kentucky.  Fox News reported that Eugenie Scott’s National Center for Science Education has sent a petition to 600 scientists in the region to oppose the new museum.  Also, the Campaign to Defend the Constitution is calling the […]

Darwin’s Ethics: All and/or None

Several stories recently indicate that evolutionists not only want to control the non-tangible areas of study, such as ethics and morals, they want to prevent anyone else from having a say. Psychology:  License to sin – What would you think of a scientist who tempted people to sin so that he could observe their actions?  […]

Human Adaptation Can Be Rapid

How long does it take for humans to adapt to environmental changes?  Some recent papers investigated this question. Paleface:  If it is assumed that humans started out medium or dark-skinned, how long did it take for Europeans to lose much of that original pigment?  An article in Science April 20 says maybe just 6,000 to […]

Free Speech?  Not When Darwin Is at Stake

Radicals get away with saying or doing almost anything on campuses these days.  There’s one “radical” view, however, that even though believed by a majority of Americans, is sure to be met with outrage: creationism.  It doesn’t even have to be creationism.  Just to suggest that Darwin and his views might not be infallible is […]

Punc Eq Pioneer Founds Father & Son Evo-Journal

Who made Newsmakers in Science March 2,1 but Niles Eldredge and his son Greg.  Eldredge the dad (you can distinguish the two in the photo by beard color) started the “punctuated equilibrium” evolution revolution in 1972 with Stephen Jay Gould.  The two paleontologists angered many other evolutionists by making it public that the fossil record […]
