    Why Darwinism is doomed -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: September 27, 2006 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Jonathan Wells, Ph.D. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2006 Harvard evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould wrote in 1977: "Biology took away our status as paragons created in the image of God." Darwinism teaches that we are accidental byproducts of purposeless natural processes that had no need for God, and this anti-religious dogma enjoys a taxpayer-funded monopoly in America's public schools and universities. Teachers who dare to question it openly have in many cases lost their jobs. The issue here is not "evolution" – a broad term that can mean simply...

    Human interaction with animals could be causing evolution to go into reverse, says a report by the Royal Society, Britain's science academy. A study of finches on the Galapagos Islands in the Pacific – finches are the same birds that were said to have inspired Charles Darwin's groundbreaking work on evolution - has shown that some could be losing their distinctive beaks in response to living near humans. Finches on the islands have developed different sizes of beak - but when people live in close proximity to the birds, their beaks revert to an intermediate size, the report says. Andrew...

    The peppered moths have been an evolutionary textbook icon for many years. Is this indeed evidence for evolution through 'industrial melanism', or is it simply an extrapolation from a very modest and common phenonemon, variation within a species population of different predominant characteristics?Biologist and evolutionist Kenneth Miller has written an interesting FAQ on peppered moths, calling 'industrial melanism' 'evolution in action' at http://www.millerandlevine.com/km/evol/Moths/moths.html. Has he overstated the case? I have made a critique of Miller's arguments and presented them here. Mr. James Lippard, an atheist and part of the infidels forum on the net, has not really challenged my arguments,...
