Michael Behe Answers Tough Questions

Since he first shook up the science world with his groundbreaking book Darwin’s Black Box, biologist Michael Behe has been fielding questions about intelligent design and evolution from scientists and non-scientists alike. Questions posed to Behe over the years since have ranged from technical to general, from philosophical to critical. Now, as we make his first online course publicly available, Read More ›

Evolution: Bacteria to Beethoven

Evolution. You learned about it in high school. It goes like this: Life started out with very simple forms and then gradually, over hundreds of millions of years, morphed into all the forms we see today. Bacteria to Beethoven. Not a straight line, of course…but that’s roughly how it went. This was the theory proposed by Charles Darwin in 1859, Read More ›

Why More scientists are going Off-script from the Darwinia

David Gelernter at Yale recently wrote an essay in Claremont Review of Books entitled “ Giving Up Darwin: A fond farewell to a brilliant and beautiful theory.” Gelernter is one more of a small but growing number of scientists and intellectuals who are now studying the evidence for themselves and finding that the case for evolutionary biology as presented by Read More ›

Mathematical Challenges to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

How much would you pay to listen in on a conversation among computer scientist David Gelernter, philosopher of science Stephen Meyer, and mathematician David Berlinski, hosted by Peter Robinson from Stanford’s Hoover Institution? As it happens, and I didn’t see this coming, the four were together in Florence and they took the opportunity to have a fascinating exchange about the Read More ›

Darwin, Hitler, and the Modern Evaluation of Human Life

Since the Enlightenment many secular ideologies have contributed to the devaluing of human life by arguing that human life is the product of chance processes. This has led to the erosion of the Judeo-Christian sanctity-of-life ethic, spawning the present “culture of death,” where many intellectuals accept abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia.
