Transitional Forms as Evidence for Evolution: Tiktaalik and cdesign proponentsists (From The Archives)

I wrote this post back in 2007, after I had  just finished watching the episode of NOVA, “Judgment Day”, about the Dover intelligent design trial. What I liked best about it was the way it highlighted the predictive power of evolutionary theory, something often denied by creationists of various sorts. When we hear about the discovery of a [Read More...]

There were so many useful and interesting posts related to evolution and religion that it seemed worthy of a round-up. RJS discusses Tiktaalik, an important fossil of a transitional form.

Creationism’s Cartoon Physics (From the Archives)

Wile E. Coyote heads towards the cliff but doesn’t see it. We’ve all seen the cartoons – he can keep running, until he looks down and notices there is no longer anything beneath his feet to support him. This is, in essence, the situation of the young-earth creationist movement. Every single objection that did not [Read More...]

Biology around the Blogosphere

If you’re new to Exploring Our Matrix, I should introduce my “Around the Blogosphere” posts – they are a round-up, sometimes of posts on a particular theme, other times just of anything I thought interesting and worth sharing – that has popped up on blogs that I read.
