Ciencia-Alternativa.org -- Educating the Spanish Speaking Community about Intelligent Design
Having spent a lot of time in the Spanish-speaking world and with those in the Spanish-speaking community in the U.S., I'm very excited to announce an excellent new website, Ciencia-Alternativa.org, which is providing resources on intelligent design in Spanish. Headed by Mr. Mario Lopez, with collaborating scientists from around the world, the site boasts many ID-resources in Spanish. While some aspects of the site are still being developed, they already have extensive resources, including:
Blog Videos Foro de discusiÃ³n (Discussion Forum) Sitios de InterÃ©s (Web Links) Noticias (News Updates) ArtÃculos (Articles--with articles in Spanish by scientists and scholars such as Michael Behe, William Dembski, Stephen Meyer, Jonathan Wells, Paul Chien, and David Berlinski) Recursos (Resources) GalerÃa de Sistemas de Complejidad Irreducible (Gallery of Irreducibly Complex Systems) Preguntas Frecuentes (Frequently Asked Questions)
Here's a blurb about the site, from their website:
Ciencia Alternativa es una organizaciÃ³n nueva en la que los cientÃficos introducen un paradigma alternativo a los presupuestos materialistas de la teorÃa de la evoluciÃ³n. La alternativa que proponemos no es una ciencia nueva, sino simplemente revolucionaria. En el corazÃ³n de cada ciencia siempre hay implicaciones filosÃ³ficas y, siendo este el caso, la ciencia del diseÃ±o inteligente (D.I.) provoca una resistencia filosÃ³fica y no cientÃfica. No hay cientÃfico que no admita reconocer el obvio diseÃ±o en la naturaleza.
And here's the translation in English:
Alternative science is a new organization in which scientists are introducing an alternative paradigm to the materialistic presuppositions of the theory of evolution. The alternative that we propose is not a new type of science, but simply revolutionary. There are always philosophical implications at the heart of each scientific theory, and this being the case, the science of intelligent design provokes a philosophical resistance, not necessarily a scientific one. There are no scientists who do not admit to recognize the obvious design in nature.
