The Difference Between Creationism and Science is Like the Difference Between Chicken and…

Skewed Views of Science

This video from a few years ago came to my attention again today, and so I thought I would share it, since it is as relevant now as it was when it was first made. [Read more…]

The Sheer Number of Young-Earth Creationists and Intelligent Design Proponents

It is difficult to work out the precise number of anti-evolutionists there are in the world, but an experiment to illustrate the sheer number of them has been proposed. If you took all the young-earth creationists and proponents of Intelligent Design, and laid them down head to foot along the equator, presumably some of them [Read More…]

How Young-Earth Creationism Works

I found this image at a site I discovered today, the satirical site The Creation News. It illustrates the method some commenters (and one in particular) have used in advocating young-earth creationism in recent discussions on this blog so precisely, that I thought I should share it. The illustration with cute bunnies still makes the [Read More…]

Dinosaurs in the Book of Job?

A question came up on Facebook about the genre of the Book of Job in the Bible. It is mostly poetry. You can tell in most English Bibles by the formatting on the page. The two line units, with the second line indented, and “thought rhymes” (matching or contrasting ideas) in both of the two, [Read More…]

How Young Earth Creationism Denies The Creator (1 Picture = 1000 Words)

I thought the picture above (which a friend shared with me on Facebook – since it was done privately, I won’t attribute it to him unless he says it is OK to do so) said everything that needs to. The young-earth creationist denies God in many ways: twisting the Bible when it suits them; demeaning [Read More…]

Breaking News: Neutrinos Really DO Travel Faster Than The Speed of Light!

I just had this bit of science news pop up on a blog I subscribe to: OPERA Confirms: Neutrinos Travel Faster Than Light!! It appears that the result has been scrutinized more carefully, and turns out to be correct. What this will mean for physics – and the future of interstellar travel some of us are [Read More…]

Religion, Science, and Deduction

I find it bizarre that critics of evolution who claim that science is simply guessing, and that one cannot draw conclusions about past biological evolution based in present evidences, do not see how this undercuts their own claims every bit as much, if not more so. Religious fundamentalists, of the sort that offer pseudoscientific critiques [Read More…]

Monkeys, Typewriters and Evolution

It is a famous analogy which has been used by both sides in the evolution debate: If you give one or more monkeys typewriters and an infinite amount of time, supposedly they will eventually produce the works of William Shakespeare. The necessary rationale for that is of course infinity: in an infinite amount of time, [Read More…]
