Disproving Evolution – Part 4.5 – Complex Traits Versus Natural Selection

[Index of series posts] Continuing the rebuttal of the article,  “9 Scientific Facts Prove that “The Theory of Evolution” is wrong.” The author has a basic argument against natural selection: “I think natural selection predicts X and not Y, but in reality, we see Y and not X.

Kindergarten Evangelism

When my seven-year-old son Michael* was in kindergarten, his table-mate asked him if he believed in God, to which he replied he did not. We have explained to him on many occasions that his beliefs about god(s) need to be his own. We are not fans of indoctrination, of any kind. He may have non-theist [Read More…]

WALL OF TEXT

Over at the AXP blog, a theistic commenter made a post that might qualify as a “wall of text”, in all the implicated glory. I thought I’d go through and add to the wall, but inserting my thoughts as I went along. [Read more…]

PERSONAL: Taking off for the day.

Hey all.  I feel bad after being gone all weekend, but today’s therapy session was pretty intense.  I’m, frankly, in no condition to keep reading the news today and can’t really find the motivation.  I’m going to take some time and see you all tomorrow. Leave happiness in the comments. [Read more…]

Quick thoughts on “the will to power.”

The speaker at Oasis on Sunday, an ex-clergy, alluded to the frequently used apologist line “life is either about the power of love or the love of power.”  More frequently you’ll hear it as “without god, all that’s left is the will to power.”  I was glad he was at Oasis and don’t want to take [Read More…]

I got this message today: Do you know anyone who is knowledgeable in secular homeschooling? My friends son has Aspberger’s and the bullying has become physical on top of mental.

It was the culmination of six months of intense planning, coaching from Mike Aus of Houston Oasis, fund-raising, blood, sweat, tears, elbow grease, fast food, and late night meetings. It was worth it. All of [Read More…]

ATHEISM: Atheist Ireland denounces PZ Myers.

I see on Hemant’s blog that Atheist Ireland has formally disassociated itself from blogger PZ Myers. Atheist Ireland is publicly dissociating itself from the hurtful and dehumanising, hateful and violent, unjust and defamatory rhetoric of the atheist blogger PZ Myers. The final of many, many straws were his latest smear that Ayaan Hirsi Ali is ‘happily [Read More…]
