    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...

    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...

    The Kansas state Board of Education on Tuesday repealed science guidelines questioning evolution that had made the state an object of ridicule. The new guidelines reflect mainstream scientific views of evolution and represent a political defeat for advocates of "intelligent design," who had helped write the standards that are being jettisoned. The intelligent design concept holds that life is so complex that it must have been created by a higher authority. The board removed language suggesting that key evolutionary concepts are controversial and being challenged by new research, and approved a new definition of science that limits it to the...

    The list truly is a "Who's Who" of prominent scientists in the world today, and now another 100 ranking leaders have added their signatures to a challenge to Darwin's theory of evolution. It's for those who have reached the epitome of their fields, but still are questioning the validity of the Darwinian philosophy and want to put their concerns in writing. The names include top scientists as MIT, UCLA, Ohio State, University of Washington, University of Pennsylvania, University of Georgia, Harvard, the College of Judea and Samaria, Johns Hopkins, Texas A&M, Duke, University of Peruglia in Italy, the British Museum...

    Twice the percentage of Europeans believe astrology is scientific (55%) as Americans (25%). (snip) America has the highest score in the world for science & technology leading indicators. Since 1995 America has gone from 25% of global high tech GDP to 43% while Europe declined from 27% to 19%. Good golly Miss Molly, that’s the same time frame time ID has been blossoming in America too.

    PETERSBURG, Kentucky - Ken Ham's sprawling creation museum isn't even open yet, but an expansion is already underway in the state-of-the art lobby, where grunting dinosaurs and animatronic humans coexist in a Biblical paradise. A crush of media attention and packed preview sessions have convinced Ham that nearly half a million people a year will come to Kentucky to see his Biblically correct version of history. "I think we'll be surprised at how many people come," Ham said as he dodged dozens of designers working to finish exhibits in time for the May 28 opening. The $27 million project, which...
