How Evolution Uses Natural Selection to Build Organisms

What is natural selection and how does evolution use it to build new organisms? The fundamental difficulty for any undirected process of evolution is being able to see into the future and determine what functions that organism will need to survive. An unguided process like natural selection is incapable of doing that. What natural selection and other undirected natural mechanisms cannot achieve however, an intelligent agent can. Philosopher of Biology Paul Nelson describes the amazing process by which the worm C. elegans is constructed and how it points toward intelligent design. Read More ›

What is Intelligent Design?

How do we recognize design? How do we realize that something has been put together intentionally by an intelligent agent? What is intelligent design? Our minds recognize the effects of other intelligent beings when we see the purposeful arrangement of parts, such as the letters and words in a book. Or, the intentional design of something like Mt. Rushmore. We Read More ›

Stephen Meyer Debunks the “God of the Gaps” Objection

A vacuous yet often heard objection to intelligent design decries ID as a “God of the gaps” argument. Here, Stephen Meyer requires less than three minutes to show that the complaint rests on a failure to understand a basic feature of the theory of ID. For more on this see the “God of the gaps” archive at Evolution News. Related Read More ›

Can the Theory of Evolution be Simulated through Lab Experiments?

Michigan State University biologist Richard Lenski tests evolution and random mutations acting on natural selection to determine what evolution can do. He has experimented with bacteria to see what new functions can evolve just through random mutations acting on natural selection. Biologist Michael Behe has found that there are severe limitations to getting the coordinated mutations that natural selection needs to develop new functions and ultimately new organisms. He determined that there are limits to evolution and what natural selection can accomplish.   Read More ›

Amazing Flagellum

The bacterial flagellum has become an iconic example of the evidence against modern Darwinian theory as well as the evidence for intelligent design. Stephen Meyer, Scott Minnich and others scientists and scholars explore the facts about this amazing piece of nanotechnology, first made famous by biologist Michael Behe when he coined the phrase irreducible complexity.

George Gilder at FreedomFest 2016: The Scandal of Money

It’s time for a new paradigm of economic thought. The key to understanding–and instigating–economic growth, Gilder argues, lies in information theory. Hear from economist and NYT bestselling author George Gilder as he expounds on the key messages of his latest book The Scandal of Money: Why Wall Street Recovers but the Economy Never Does at the 2016 FreedomFest conference in Read More ›
