Microsoft Billionaire Puts His Money Where His Darwinism Is

Paul Allen is spending millions on humanitarian causes: not the cure of disease or the end of poverty, but on helping humans recognize that they evolved from space dust (see next entry).  This, presumably, brings enlightenment.     Shortly after 9/11, the PBS series Evolution made its debut, thanks to a large endowment from Allen, […]

A film adaptation of Lee Strobel’s best seller The Case for Christ (1998) was released by La Mirada Films on September 11.  Strobel, a former legal reporter for the Chicago Tribune, and an atheist, was determined to disprove the miracles and resurrection of Jesus Christ after his wife converted to Christianity.  His two-year investigation of […]

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: […]

Video Clip:  The Rich Little Bird

A popular video clip has been circulating around the internet for over a year.  It shows an Australian lyre bird imitating other birds and man-made sounds.  Click here to watch the 3.5 minute performance.  Narrated by David Attenborough, it was voted the #1 most popular Attenborough moment from the naturalist’s TV shows.

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 […]

Passings: Howell Dies, of Time-Life Book Fame

Nature contained an obituary for F. Clark Howell, paleoanthropologist (1925-2007).  He knew and worked with most of the 20th century fossil-man hunters from Raymond Dart to the Leakeys.  Students will probably remember the Time-Life series he authored, Early Man, with its fold-out panorama by illustrator Jay Matternes of the march from furry monkey to naked […]

Two Films Fight the Consensus

Two film documentaries this month, though not on the subject of Darwinism, are contradicting scientific consensus. Global warming is man’s fault, right?:  A documentary by Martin Durkin called “The Great Global Warming Swindle” (see Channel 4.com) interviewed half a dozen notable climate scientists who dispute the human-caused global warming scare.  The entire documentary can be […]

History Highlight: The Two Wilberforces

Those seeing the new movie Amazing Grace (opened Feb 2, 2007) about England’s long political battle to end slavery may not realize the family connection of the film’s hero with the controversy over Darwinism. William Wilberforce, the champion of abolition who brought an end to the slave trade as depicted in the film, had a […]

Haeckel Given Soft Gloves in Nature

How should a scientist’s career be evaluated if he was a known fraud?  How also if he promoted views that fanned the flames of racism and genocide?  Here’s what Philip Ball said about Ernst Haeckel in Nature:1 Reckoned to have been instrumental to the introduction of darwinism to Germany, Haeckel has also inspired generations of […]

Dodo Prey Fights Back

Irked at falsehoods promulgated by Randy Olsen’s film Flock of Dodos, the intelligent design (ID) think tank Discovery Institute (DI) is fighting back.  The film presents a viewpoint that what ID lacks in science it makes up for in public relations.  The DI is convinced the reverse is true.  In an attempt to rebut what […]

Skeptics Society Apology Illustrates Christian Virtue

Some evolutionists leaped onto a press release from a group named PEER last December that claimed national park rangers at Grand Canyon were obeying some new policy under pressure from the Bush administration that did not allow them to claim the canyon was millions of years old (see 01/11/2007, bullet 2).  This was supposedly related […]
