A Point of Light

Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is a religious theory in the sense that it is based on powerful theological claims.

They form the foundation and ultimate justification for today’s theory of evolution. As […]

Darwin Day in America “superbly makes the case that Darwin had plenty of bad ideas”

Over at Culture Watch, American born, Melbourne living, blogger Bill Muehlenberg provides yet another good review of John West’s Darwin Day in America. ‘Social Darwinism’ is a term which refers to the social and political ramifications of biological Darwinism and the materialism which it is imbedded in.

Freudians Slip

“Theodore Dalrymple” not only has one of the most droll pen names I have seen (the man is a doctor who enjoys his privacy), but he also is one of England’s best writers on social issues–and its finest contrarian. One of his favorite targets is scientism and the ways it ravages the poor and ignorant. […]

Biology Replaces Technology as Scientists Plan to Use Flagellar Pathways to Power Nano-Bots

Doubts About Darwin Stem from Science Not Religion

Every so often the Darwinists get all riled up about the Scientific Dissent From Darwin list, which lists over 700 PhD scientists who publicly affirm: “We are skeptical of the claims for the ability of random mutations and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian Theory […]
