Creationism and Religious Freedom

Today my class on “Religion and Freedom of Expression” met for the first time. It is a class with a non-traditional format – we meet a few Saturday mornings for a few hours, plus also four evenings when students attend lectures in our public lecture series and have dinner and a Q&A time with the [Read More...]

Sacred Theories

Hemant Mehta shared this church sign. What it says is quite ironic, given that, since it is from a Free Methodist church, it is probably intended to be antievolutionist. But taken at face value, it is an excellent summary, putting in a nutshell a point made at greater length in a chart that Scott Bailey [Read More...]

Darwin’s Doubt and Ray Comfort’s Certainty

There have been a┬álot of devastating reviews of Stephen Meyer’s book Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. One recent one is by Larry Moran, and it sums up one of the problems with the book in a picture: The circle indicates the small moment in the history [Read More...]

A Better Way to be a Biblical Literalist

If you're determined to be a Biblical literalist, or at least to pretend to be one (since no one is really one), you don't have to deny evolution. Indeed, there is a better option, that accepts that evolution occurred and says that God miraculously does evolution better than natural causes could! Since there is no [Read More...]

Rebuttals to Ray Comfort

Hemant Mehta recently shared this video response to Ray Comfort’s deceitful movie about evolution. It makes some excellent points, including highlighting the irony of Comfort saying “Just look at this banana! Proof of God!” and yet complaining, when scientists have so much evidence for evolution they can point to, “Sorry, that’s not good enough!” Mehta [Read More...]

Ray Comfort’s Latest Attempt to Deceive is Online

As several bloggers have already noted, Ray Comfort’s new movie, which deceitfully edits what scientists and even random bystanders have to say in order to deceive people about science, is now on YouTube: Use the comments section to discuss the lies, errors, and anything else that is wrong with the contents! I’ll get the ball [Read More...]

How Would You Try To Get Through?

I received an e-mail recently from someone whom I banned for trollish behavior, which seemed to me to be wasting the time of not only myself, but also other commenters. The individual in question was demonstrably dishonest, and refused to interact with evidence. The e-mail illustrates the same persistent claim or belief that the individual [Read More...]

Evolution is Not the Problem

It frustrates me that any religious believer thinks that evolution is somehow at odds with the goodness of God in a way that a theism which rejects evolution is not. If one thinks about the birth defects, illnesses, and other things highlighted in this video which Hemant Mehta and PZ Myers both recently shared… …it [Read More...]
