    JAG 5000 Writes: You go into a Super Walmart Store and you go into a Super Mall, like The Mall Of America, and you look at what is on the shelves. You pause and reflect upon the numerous varieties of raw materials used to make the hundreds of thousands of material objects found in those stores and in the world at large --- from paper clips to huge ocean going cruise ships and aircraft carriers and Boeing 747's. You pause and think about the almost unfathomable number of material objects humans have made from the raw materials (eg. steel, copper,...

The trouble is that there are about 2000 enzymes, and the chance of obtaining them all in a random trial is only one part in 10^40,000, an outrageously small probability that could not be faced even if the whole universe consisted of organic soup.”___Fred Hoyle “There is a coherent plan to the universe, though I don't know what it's a plan for.”__Fred hoyle “The notion that not only...

    Some Professionally-Safe Darwin Doubters Are Now Speaking Out August 5, 2019 | Jerry Bergman When the coast is clear, and their careers are safe, some academics can afford to doubt Darwin publicly. by Jerry Bergman, PhD My experience after teaching at three universities, when discussing Darwinism with colleagues, I have learned there exist many more Darwin skeptics than commonly believed. Most are in the closet for very good reasons (career survival), or at least they decline to publicly speak out about their views opposing Darwinism. The evidence against Darwinism is so great that it seems inevitable a few would speak...
  • Yale Computer Scientist David Gelernter Abandons Darwinism

    Renowned Yale computer scientist David Gelernter claims that he is abandoning Charles Darwins theory of evolution. Gelernter, who formerly served as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, published a column earlier this year detailing his move away from evolutionary theory. The column, which was titled Giving Up Darwin, provides Gelernters arguments against Darwinism. Darwins theory predicts that new life forms evolve gradually from old ones in a constantly branching, spreading tree of life. Those brave new Cambrian creatures must therefore have had Precambrian predecessors, similar but not quite as fancy and sophisticated. They could not have all blown out...

    Recorded on June 6, 2019 in Italy. Based on new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, should Darwins theory of evolution be dismissed, dissected, developed or replaced with a theory of intelligent design? Has Darwinism really failed? Peter Robinson discusses it with David Berlinski, David Gelernter, and Stephen Meyer, who have raised doubts about Darwins theory in their two books and essay, respectively The Deniable Darwin, Darwins Doubt, and Giving Up Darwin (published in the Claremont Review of Books).

    Evolution News ^ | March 25, 2019, | David Klinghoffer
    When Charles Darwin finished The Origin of Species, he thought that he had explained every clue, but one. Though his theory could explain many facts, Darwin knew that there was a significant event in the history of life that his theory did not explain. During this event, the Cambrian explosion, many animals suddenly appeared in the fossil record without apparent ancestors in earlier layers of rock. In Darwins Doubt, Stephen C. Meyer tells the story of the mystery surrounding this explosion of animal lifea mystery that has intensified, not only because the expected ancestors of these animals have not been...

    The Washington Post ^ | 03/08/19 | Jerry A. Coyne
    The notion of intelligent design arose after opponents of evolution repeatedly failed on First Amendment grounds to get Bible-based creationism taught in the public schools. Their solution: Take God out of the mix and replace him with an unspecified intelligent designer. They added some irrelevant mathematics and fancy biochemical jargon, and lo: intelligent design, which scientists have dubbed creationism in a cheap tuxedo. But the tuxedo is fraying, for intelligent design has been rejected not just by biologists but also by judges who recognize it as poorly disguised religion. Nevertheless, its advocates persist. Among the most vocal is Michael J....
  • Co-Founder of String Theory and Physicist, Michio Kaku believes in God, if not that God

    Co-founder of string field theory and physicist Michio Kaku made waves last year or at least seemed to when it was reported that hed proven the existence of God. The Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies quoted Kaku as saying, "I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. To me, it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance." Reacting to that public comment, Kaku said: "Thats one of the drawbacks...

    Is the male reproductive system poorly designed? by Jerry Bergman One of the latest proofs of human evolution is the poor design claim, namely that an intelligent Creator would not design some human body part in a certain way. An example is the human male reproductive system, which Rowe listed as number four in his list of the top 10 design flaws in the human body.1 The human male reproductive system poor design claim focuses on the view that if testicles were designed, then why didnt God protect them better. Couldnt the Designer have put them inside the body, or...

    Landmark new research that involves analyzing millions of DNA barcodes has debunked much about what we know today about the evolution of species. In a massive genetic study, senior research associate at the Program for the Human Environment at Rockefeller University Mark Stoeckle and University of Basel geneticist David Thaler discovered that virtually 90 percent of all animals on Earth appeared at right around the same time. More specifically, they found out that 9 out of 10 animal species on the planet came to being at the same time as humans did some 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. "This conclusion...

    The other storyline is simply fantastical. Congressional Republicans have uniformly run away from Trump's Obama-wiretap accusation. Clapper denies it. FBI Director James Comey denies it. Not a single member of Trump's own administration is willing to say it's true. Loopier still is to demand that Congress find the truth when the president could just pick up the phone and instruct the FBI, CIA and DNI to declare on the record whether this ever occurred. And if there really was an October 2016 FISA court order to wiretap Trump, the president could unilaterally declassify the information yesterday. The bugging story is...

    Whale Fin Inspires Safer Racing Wheels by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E., M.D. * Road bicycle racers are exciting to watch as they race in tight packs at speeds between 30-40 miles per hour. Cycling is a risky sport, and numerous racers have been injured or killed as they contend with the challenges of hazardous road and environmental conditions like strong cross winds. Some new technology may help reduce the risk of cycling accidents. The engineers who design racing bikes look to achieve the fastest, yet safest, bicycles possible. One company, Zipp Speed Weaponry, spent four years developing new rims for...

    I have written three rather lengthy books about discrimination against scientists who dared to question the validity of Darwinism, more commonly known as Darwin Dissidents.[1] C.S. Lewis predicted that Darwinists would become totalitarians when he was alive, and history has proved him correct.[2] One recent case is that of the distinguished paleontologist, Dr. Günter Bechly, a world expert on fossil insects, who was forced to resign [a tactful way to say he was fired] as curator for the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart, Germany. Then, as a result, he was censored from Wikipedia. The editors at Wikipedia attempted...

    Modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are not just incrementally superior to any other hominid or animal; were qualitatively different, both as the only known technologically-intelligent species and by virtue of dozens of unique abilities. It is not a claim but a demonstrable fact that anatomically modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) are vastly superior to every other form of life and, for whatever reason, all the genetic mutations that make us unique and confer over 40 traits and behaviors that result in evolutionary advantages over every other animal, occurred within a short period of time, within just one genus, and nowhere...

Nevertheless, Merali describes herself as both a believer in God and the holder of an Ivy League Ph.D. in theoretical physics, so she asks a good question: If God desired to send us a message, how would He do it?

    Plant Email System Described Posted on April 7, 2017 in Intelligent Design What do you call a long-distance signaling system that involves coded information? Japanese researchers identified a coded string of information that acts as a signal, but it wasnt intercepted email: it was a molecule inside a plant, the humble lab plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Phys.org says that scientists at Nagoya University identified a polypeptide that tells roots when the top of the plant is starved for nitrogen, essentially telling the roots to send some up pronto. The polypeptide is not a random string of amino acids. Its an ordered...
