  • Handy Dandy Evolution Refuter

    When Bob Kofahl and I first discussed this project, I knew we were on to something. "Kelly, we should put together a book for students and parents that answers the major questions concerning evolution. A single volume with references would be ideal." "Great," I said, "Why don't we put together a Handy Dandy Evolution Refuter." And so Bob smiled, put on his thinking cap, and did just that. The results will startle and amaze you. For in this volume he has compiled the major answers to the bold claims of evolutionists. Each question has its own answer with full references...

    The vaunted Smithsonian Institution, highly regarded for promoting knowledge and science, is embroiled in a scandal for censoring scientific inquiry. It would be amusing when the mouthpieces of political correctness abandoned their mantra of freedom and tolerance to squash a threat to their power, if so much were not at stake. Consider the case of the squashing of Dr. Richard Sternberg, a former research associate at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) and a distinguished evolutionary biologist with two doctorates in biology. Dr. Sternberg’s sin was to allow a scientific article critical of neo-Darwinism to be published in...

    WASHINGTON - Man may have emerged on the south shore of the Mediterranean 35,000 years earlier than previously thought, said a study out Monday. That would push the appearance of Homo sapiens in northern Africa back to 160,000 years ago, according to scientists who studied the remains of a three-year-old found in Morocco in 1968. Using microscopic and X-ray examination of tooth growth, which stores information as tree rings do, scientists said the date Homo sapiens arrived in the north of Africa may have been earlier than previously believed. "The researchers found that the Moroccan juvenile displays many of the...
  • Law Review Article Supports Constitutionality of Teaching Intelligent Design

    A recent law review article by self-described “liberal First Amendment theorist” Arnold H. Loewy argues that it is constitutional to teach intelligent design in public schools. Writing in First Amendment Law Review, Loewy points out that “[t]o allow all ideas about the origin of man that do not presuppose an intelligent designer, but forbid all theories that explore the possibilities of such a designer, expresses hostility, not neutrality, towards religion.” Similar to the position of Discovery Institute, Loewy does not believe that intelligent design should therefore be required in schools. But he does think that it should not be prohibited...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)--Secular scientists who fear allowing the conclusions of creationism into secular universities have good reason to be afraid because they are accountable to the creator, Kurt Wise, professor of theology and science at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said on the Albert Mohler Radio Program in February. “If it’s true that there was a creation, then you realize that means there’s someone in control,” Wise said on the broadcast hosted daily by Southern Seminary’s president. “And if there was a flood -- in other words, a creator who actually judged this creation -- that means we’re in big trouble....

    In the next few months, two museum exhibits costing tens of millions of dollars will stand open on opposite sides of life's greatest debate.Both feature fossils, both explain the significance of an apelike creature named Lucy and both use sophisticated interactive displays to engage their audience.But that's about all that they have in common.The Hall of Human Origins, the nation's first comprehensive exhibit on human evolution, opened last weekend at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. It teaches that we evolved from apelike ancestors about 6 million years ago, and that modern chimps have sophisticated ways of...
  • What is wrong with intelligent design?

    In a thought-provoking paper from the March issue of The Quarterly Review of Biology , Elliott Sober (University of Wisconsin) clearly discusses the problems with two standard criticisms of intelligent design: that it is unfalsifiable and that the many imperfect adaptations found in nature refute the hypothesis of intelligent design. Biologists from Charles Darwin to Stephen Jay Gould have advanced this second type of argument. Stephen Jay Gould's well-known example of a trait of this type is the panda's thumb. If a truly intelligent designer were responsible for the panda, Gould argues, it would have provided a more useful tool...

    The Theory of Evolution is a wound upon society inflicted by proclaimed erudite men. This festering wound is easily transmitted. It is spread into almost every thing children read at public school; fictional books, geography, biology ECT. ECT.. It is portrayed by Hollywood This travesty is supported by our tax dollars and is never corrected when proved wrong, it is destroying our society with its Godless belief. It will be said that they can not afford new book, well just rip out the pages that are incorrect or mark them out with a permanent marker. This hypothesis has been...
  • Evolution is just as religious as Intelligent Design

    Whenever there arises a discussion on the origins issue (as in intelligent design versus evolution), Darwinian materialists invariably go to great lengths to frame the discussion as science versus religion, despite the scientific validity of opposing arguments and scientific credentials of those who propone them. Any doubts raised about Darwinian evolution are automatically attributed to religious motivations that cannot possibly be rooted in fact. What is worse is that these doubts are dismissed without consideration and the scientist/teacher who raised them is blacklisted. You won’t see this on the nightly news, and the ACLU surely will turn a blind eye,...
