Signature in the Cell author Stephen Meyer debates Oxford University chemist and “new atheist” Peter Atkins on Premier Radio UK. The program is in conjunction with the release of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, which is coming out on DVD in the UK just this month.
My sister nailed it many years ago when she said, “Your basic human is not such a hot item.” Keep that filed in your head as I tell my little tale. About five or six years ago, roughly, I was solicited to write a column every two weeks for the Sunday New York Times Business Section. I was really thrilled. I have Read More ›

Expelled documents the plight of scientists and scholars who dare to question the claims of Darwinian evolution. This past year Expelled helped to inspire state legislators to advance academic freedom in six states. As a result, in June, Louisiana successfully passed the Louisiana Science Education Act to protect scientists, teachers and students who voice their skepticism of Darwinism.

In an essay published recently on National Review Online, John Derbyshire has declared that the documentary Expelled contains a blood libel against Western Civilization. His is an exercise of striking vulgarity, the more so since, as he insouciantly admits, he has not “seen the dang thing.” A blood libel, one might recall, refers to the charge that the Jewish people are irredeemably stained by their occasional, if modest, need for Christian blood. Some terms have acquired through their historical associations a degree of repugnance that persuades sensitive men and women not to use them. If Derbyshire has been repelled by the smell of blood, it is a revulsion that he has successfully overcome.
Having not seen the documentary that he proposes to criticize, Derbyshire is nonetheless quite certain that he knows what it conveys. “It is pretty plain,” he asserts, “that it is a piece of creationist porn.” Perhaps I will be forgiven for suggesting that John Derbyshire’s late-night scrutiny of the Internet may have corrupted his habitual search for le mot juste. Expelled has nothing to do with creationism, and if it is pornographic, the details have not become widely known.
Expelled makes a point far plainer than pornography and points to a phenomenon just as widespread. The scientific community is intolerant of dissent and morbidly so when it comes to Darwin’s theory of evolution. Those who reject criticism because it is unwelcome have in John Derbyshire acquired an ally of the best sort. He is not disposed to ask questions of his friends; and he is eager uncritically to attack their enemies.
It is a match made in heaven.Read More ›
