God Outranks Ken Ham

From God of Evolution. Young-earth creationists regularly claim that accepting evolution is putting the words of human beings above the Word of God. That is precisely backwards, Biblically speaking as well as logically. Young-earth creationists claim to believe that God is the Creator, and so rejecting the testimony of the work of God’s hands is [Read More...]

Observable Proof of Macro-Aging

In a discussion on Facebook, a young-earth creationist demanded “observable proof of macro-evolution.” I realized that the demand is rather akin to someone asking for observable proof of aging. Perhaps one can see “micro-aging” as it occurs in one’s cells. But what proof do you have that the younger person in the photo albums in [Read More...]

I Just Know

“I just know” replaces systematic reviews at top of evidence pyramid The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) announced today that “I just know” will replace systematic reviews as the top level of evidence available in medical research. For years scientists and doctors have dismissed anecdotes from the likes of anti-vaxxers and pseudoscience pushers, [Read More...]

Historical Science, Jesus, and Evolution

One popular objection in our time to evolutionary biology is a bogus distinction between observational science and historical science.

The Jesus Birther Movement

I recently had my attention drawn to a rather bizarre web page, connected with the “Jesus Birther Movement.” They oddly dismiss sources like Josephus because they were written somewhat later than Jesus’ time, as though that is uncommon, or normally means that an author writing slightly after a person’s own time is unlikely to be able to [Read More...]

It Is Still A Lie

The above quote comes from a post by Jim Kidder in a series that is in turn inspired by a series by David Macmillan about being a former young-earth creationist. See too Dan Arel documenting an example of Ken Ham’s dishonesty regarding the Ark Encounter project.   [Read more...]

Jesus the Exception?

While I was traveling recently, lots more appeared in the blogosphere related to the historical Jesus in general, and Bart Ehrman’s book on Christology in particular. Larry Hurtado had a review of the latter published. Jonathan Burke blogged about whether Jesus existed. Cassandra Farrin discussed Jesus’ unique voiceprint. Bart Ehrman has had a series of [Read More...]

Unreasonable Demand of Antievolutionists
