Recently, a fellow Appalachian objected to my use of a 1937 quote from Theodosius Dobzhansky based on an implied appeal to novelty. An appeal to novelty is the fallacious assumption that just because something is newer, it must be better or more true than something older. He basically asked, given my 1937 quotation, whether I would also […]
If science cannot comment on the supernatural, then it cannot rule it out; it can only come up with all-natural answers that may or may not be true, and are most certainly false where supernatural agency was actually responsible!
Recently on “rev” Barry Lynn’s Culture Shocks program, PZ Myers commented on geocentrism. After stating that such folks affirm that the Earth is the center of the galaxy or universe or whatever based on scientific ignorance ["It's pretty easy to dismiss what you don't understand," opines Myers], he made the following estimation: “Also, they’ve got […]
At one point in the Origins debate, evolutionists were fond of using the so-called Horse series as evidence for microbes-to-man evolution. The emerging Creationist classification science of baraminology has displaced the Horse series as largely irrelevant to the debate. Creationist scientists now affirm that all horses [including extinct three-toed varieties] all belong to the same created kind […]
I once heard a college professor who specialized in evolution and ecology remark that no he’d never heard an adequate Creationist explanation for vestigial organs and structures. Rather he claimed that the only explanation he’d ever been offered was something to the effect that ”Well, God made them to test our faith.” I do not wish to question his veracity […]
I once read an editorial appearing in my local newspaper, The Charleston Gazette [“Culture Shift,” Feb 5, 2010, Pg 4A], that began and ended with the phrase, “American morality has evolved.” Gazette editor Jim Haught is also a senior editor for Free Inquiry, the flagship magazine of the anti-religious Center For Inquiry founded by humanist […]
In the first part of this series, we examined how evolutionists have migrated away from an evidence-based argument and a willingness to debate the issue publicly in favor of mockery, insulted dogma and personality cults. :: Read Part 1: Darwin’s Glass Chin The second part of this series discussed why NeoDarwinism was necessary to save […]
Textbooks and Evo-evangelists still claim that small observable microevolutionary changes lead to big macroevolutionary changes. Some even think that Creationists made up the terms micro- and macroevolution to confuse folks but the distiction was actually recognized by evolutionists like Theodosius Dobzhansky [poor Mr. Hurd]! But the truth is that observable processes like Natural Selection and speciation can produce horizontal changes within kinds of animals but cannot satisfy the requirements of the assumptions of vertical microbes-to-man macroevolution. Which is pretty sad, since that’s what we teach our children!
Reuters has reported that a panel of 41 scientists, presumably in lab coats and hailing from Europe, the United States, Mexico, Canada and Japan, have finally identified the smoking gun behind the extinction of the dinosaurs. Sorting through 20 years worth of research, the panel decreed that a giant asteroid 9 miles wide pounding into the Earth […]
There’s no such thing as a missing link, unless we’re talking about synapses that ought to be firing somewhere inside that tiny grey area which presumably exists somewhere deep within a Darwinist’s thick skull! “What about cavemen?” It’s one of the most common questions asked of creation speakers. There are two short answers. [A] Yes, men […]
I’ve recently been posed a very cogent question, one that I get a lot actually: “How can you say that God created in six solar days when the sun is clearly created on the 4th day???” I do often use the term “solar day” when I’m refering to Genesis. When some people read Genesis, they impose man’s […]
