Via ERV, we learn that the Journal of Creation is now available online, with a 12-month delay. Lots of pdf fun for all the family!
There's even an ID prediction pdf) (in a review by Walter ReMine of Simon Conway Morris' book):
|Message Theory claims life was reasonably designed: (1) for survival, (2) to look like the product of one designer (or group of designers acting together as one, rather than multiple independent designers), and (3) to also resist evolutionary explanations. This theory explains|
and predicts: (a) the vast unity of all life-forms, including their astonishing unity at the biochemical level (which
is not predicted by evolution). It also predicts the system-wide, large-scale patterns exposed by Gould and Morris, (b) the large gaps between life-forms that defy Darwinian gradualism, © the absence of clear-cut ancestors and lineage ? in other words, (d) the abundance of diversity (i.e. in Gould?s words, ?indecipherable bushiness?), plus (e) the abundance of ?convergence?
(which cannot be explained by common descent, by atavism, or by Transposition). Also, there is, (f) the
substantial absence of a Transposition pattern (particularly in the fossil record, the multicellular life-forms). Plus (g)
the origin-of-life is such an intractable problem for naturalism. Life is unified as the work of one designer, while simultaneously designed to resist evolutionary explanations. These are the major patterns of life, and
Message Theory explains them all in a coherent, scientifically testable (i.e., empirically risky) manner. I claim the entirety of Morris?s book?and its documentation of life?s abundant ?convergence? pattern?as evidence for
Go on folks, start digging....
It is fun to dip into the various threads to watch cluelessness at work in the hands of the confident exponent. - Soapy Sam (so say we all)
