God and Evolution: Your Options

Here is another comment on this blog that seemed worth sharing in a post, this time from Stuart32: It’s not a question of evolution versus Christianity. If the theory of evolution is true then any objection you might have against it is also an objection against God’s way creating us. But if the theory isn’t [Read More...]

Five Awful Reasons to Teach Creationism in Schools

Jack Wellman has posted five really awful reasons to teach creationism in schools. He doesn’t seem to know that they are awful, and so let me briefly explain. 1) There are no criticisms of evolution: Wellman complains that there are no criticisms of evolution in textbooks even though it is (in scientific technical terminology he [Read More...]

A Fourth Wise Man

Michael Roberts shared this creche on Facebook. Can you spot the fourth wise man in this nativity scene? What do you think of putting him there? Who else would you add, if you had the appropriate figures? I know that those birds may look like ducks, but it makes more sense to imagine that they [Read More...]

Circular Macroevolution

I am grateful to Paul Braterman for helping me to notice just how circular a particular objection to evolution is. Some science deniers accept microevolution, the sort that can be experimentally studied in laboratories, but will reject macroevolution, saying that macroevolution has never been observed. The problem with this is that macroevolution is defined as [Read More...]

New Creationist T-Shirt

Eisenbrauns has announced that they will soon have available for purchase a new t-shirt for that Mesopotamian creationist in your life: one that features an excerpt from the Enuma Elish! For young-earth creationists, however, I recommend getting them something from the National Center for Science Education (which just announced that Ann Reid will be taking [Read More...]

Why People Reject Evolution

From Tyler Francke’s God of Evolution blog, where you will also find the top ten signs that you don’t understand evolution at all. [Read more...]

Why Young-Earth Creationism is so Implausible, in a Nutshell

Commenter arcseconds put it beautifully: Doesn’t it strike you as remotely strange that the world’s scientists should accept a framework which is so obviously flawed any idiot can see through it? I mean, if it’s really this simple, they’re either a bunch of fools, or engaged in some huge confidence trick. The former seems contradicted [Read More...]

Evolution and Ecclesiastes

Thanks to God of Evolution for this nice reminder that “what the Bible says,” and how it relates to what science reveals, is not monolithic and uniform, contrary to what young-earth creationists would have you believe. See too the discussion there of whether Genesis depicts creation as not merely good but “perfect.” [Read more...]
