Organisms Do Evolve

Patheos Posts on the Real Nye-Ham Debate

Today I made a spoof post about the upcoming debate between Ken Ham and Bill Nye, but there have been a lot of more serious treatments of the subject, including a number here on Patheos blogs. Evangelicals are not necessarily more likely to side with Ken Ham than other Christians. Geek Goes Rogue will be [Read More...]

Progressive Christianity is a Threat to Ken Ham’s Deceptions

Ken Ham has gone on record as saying that progressive Christianity is dangerous. This is good news. Any authentic Christianity ought to seem dangerous to oppressors and charlatans and the narrow-minded. Otherwise, we are doing it wrong. Among the ironic things Ham said was this gem: Apparently they call this sort of thing ‘Progressive Christianity.’ [Read More...]

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...]

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...]

Maybe

Maybe this is why young-earth creationism is so disturbing and offensive. Young-earth creationists will pretend that mainstream science journals are not filled with abundant evidence for evolution – the course it has taken, the processes involved, and the genetic changes that underpin it. They will point to the things that scientists do not yet know, [Read More...]
