Every ten years or so the biological apple cart is upset, and a long-established "fact" is proven to be wrong. Ann Gauger http://www.biologicinstitute.org/people
The book, it seems to me, has the potential of striking at the heart of the debate over materialism in a way that even arguments about Darwinian evolution, for example, do not. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
"The Fundamental Stuff of the World Is Information": An Evening with William Dembski, July 16, to Celebrate an Important New Book
In light of modern information theory, it is matter, not mind, that may be the "myth." Evolution News & Views
"Is it appropriate for a state-funded museum to join forces with organizations such as the Humanist Society and the Freedom from Religion group to promote an anti-religious agenda?" Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188
The lipids (fats) that comprise the cell membrane and organelle membranes are finely tuned to their function, built by elaborate machines, and assisted by a host of other molecules. Evolution News & Views
If the terms of this story were reversed -- a state-run museum joins with Christian groups to bash atheism or other religious beliefs, then covers its tracks when challenged -- you'd never hear the end of it. Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188
Recounting an exchange he once had with bioethicist Peter Singer, Lennox pointed out that atheists have a belief system too, that is to say a faith. Donald McLaughlin http://www.discovery.org/p/611
Yes, John Farrell, "Mr. Ellipsis," the punctuation maven, I'm looking at you. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209

Engineers wanted to mimic the birds. They are finding out how hard that is. Evolution News & Views
The topics will range from human origins to genetic determinism and moral responsibility to the question of how science is possible in the first place. Donald McLaughlin http://www.discovery.org/p/611
The edge of evolution lies where reasonably probable, random mutation-selection runs out of steam and "dumb luck" (or purposeful design) takes over. Michael Behe
If new, separate human species are not found, perhaps they can be argued into existence. Denyse O'Leary
"Meyer was WORLD's Daniel of the Year in 2009, shortly after he published his previous big book, Signature in the Cell." Evolution News & Views
Some scientists think an incredible string of luck, analogous to making a series of very lucky bets, is the explanation for why we are here. Ann Gauger http://www.biologicinstitute.org/people
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.
