Discovery Institute Scholars Predict that, as a Vehicle for Materialism, the New Cosmos Will Be as Screechy as Sagan's Original
For atheists, Darwinists and materialists, the popular 1980 documentary series with Carl Sagan has canonical status. Evolution News & Views
University of Surrey theoretical physicist Jim Al-Khalili calls it, understandably, "nothing short of miraculous." David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
New Atheists like Dawkins and Coyne may just be trying, clumsily, to assume a provocative stance. That's the charitable interpretation, and perhaps it's true. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
Sometimes the totalitarianism inherent in atheism doesn't even run deep: it sits right on the surface. Michael Egnor
"Lewis's narrative mounts a deceptively subtle critique of certain Darwinian ways of understanding the place of humanity within the natural order." Michael Flannery http://www.discovery.org/p/471
Due to high demand, the Early-Bird Registration Deadline for this fifth annual Westminster Conference has been extended to March 14! Evolution News & Views
Bryan College, named for William Jennings Bryan, wants faculty to sign a statement affirming the historicity of Adam and Eve and denying mankind's descent from animals. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
Through genetic sleuthing and surveys, researchers found that humans spread a genetic mutation in horses around the world. Evolution News & Views
Do advances in cosmology, biochemistry, paleontology, and genetics undermine Christian faith, or is there in fact compelling evidence for design in nature? Evolution News & Views
Of course, these are all things that Darwin skeptics and intelligent-design advocates have been saying for years. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
Ribozyme experiments suggest that for life to originate, what was needed was a goal in mind, an agent in charge, with the means to implement a preconceived plan. We have a name for that. Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188
When it hatches from the egg, it is only a few millimeters long; but inside its tiny head is a wonder of nature that will guide it for thousands of miles -- and challenge scientists to explain it. Evolution News & Views
It's amazing that lots of intellectuals, not excepting ones who really ought to know better, are governed by exactly that consideration. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
"I've listened to your stories," says Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, "now I have to listen to the animals." Wesley J. Smith http://www.nationalreview.com/human-exceptionalism
Current research assumes that life's origin must be a fully natural event, whether it occurs due to an as-yet-unknown law of nature or by chance. Denyse O'Leary

The sheer number of new papers attributing the rise of Cambrian animals to oxygen is weird. Could it be chance that these are all coming out months after the release of Darwin's Doubt? Evolution News & Views
If you like today's economy and want more of the kind of "fun" we have had for the last five years, just follow the green misanthropes. Wesley J. Smith http://www.nationalreview.com/human-exceptionalism
Before sharing my comment, I'll recount some perhaps relevant background. Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188
Antievolutionists Say the Darndest Things
Antievolutionists often express outrage over alleged incivility from those who oppose their efforts to evade the establishment clause of the First Amendment. But they have no difficulty in dishing out the abuse themselves. Here is a sample from the Invidious Comparisons thread that documents egregious behavior on the part of the religious antievolution advocates.
Behind this student movement is a more general intellectual movement that will bear fruit in the coming century. It is a bit thin on the ground for now, but so was the Christian faith in the first century. Materialism as a philosophy is superficially powerful but moribund, as we saw when the Soviet Union collapsed without a struggle a decade ago. Methodological naturalism is a branch on the materialist tree that will lose its power to intimidate when the tree is known to be hanging in midair.
