Intelligent Design Creationism is not Science By JAMES WILLIAMS – JAMESDWILLIAMS.WORDPRESS.COM Added: Monday, 26 September 2011 at 12:32 PM I’m just back from the BBC studio in Brighton having done 9 regional interviews/debates on the issue of teaching intelligent design creationism as science in schools. http://richarddawkins.net/articles/643253-intelligent-design-creationism-is-not-science

Design arguments vs Darwin critiques

September 15th, 2011 · No Comments

One of the strange things about the ID group is the way they think they represent design arguments. If anything, the ancient design argument, visible in Socrates, has been spoiled by these people. I am baffled that a group would try to enforce an orthodoxy of rightwing politics among Darwin critics. Laughable. But that is […]

Handing Coulter debating points

August 30th, 2011 · No Comments

http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2011/08/someone_has_taken_the_coulter.php?utm_source=mostactive&utm_medium=link It is disastrous for naive Darwinists (and liberals) to hand Coulter an easy debate over Darwinian evolution. And it is equally disastrous to suggest that Darwinism is a liberal idea, when in fact it is a conservative social darwinist mess, one that conservative ID-ists are thrilled to land on the heads of confused liberals.

Tortured logic of darwinists and ID-ists

July 24th, 2011 · No Comments

The tortured attempts to avoid intelligent design continue Tortured logic, but interesting (???) Back to intelligent design for a bit. In my article “Intelligent Design, Unknown Intelligence, and a Ouija Board” I critiqued several of Joseph H. Axell’s claims culminating in his assertion that you cannot invoke intelligence as an explanation unless you have an […]

Science a religion?

July 19th, 2011 · No Comments

http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2011/07/19/dawkins-why-science-isnt-a-religion/ Is Science a Religion? by Richard Dawkins Published in the Humanist, January/February 1997 Accusing science of being a religion is often a gesture of impatience at the point that scientific perspectives take on a kind of dogmatic faith-like bias. We have indulged in this slap in the face here, a number of times. If […]

Darwinism empirical??

July 17th, 2011 · No Comments

Unlike science, theology starts with conclusions… It is hard to read any further in this post. Science deals in evidence in its real sciences, like physics, but the limbo cases like Darwinism are ideologies dressed up in phony natural selection claims that are not truly empirical. This arrogant hypocrisy of science gets to be tiresome. […]

Has science finally refuted creationism?

July 6th, 2011 · No Comments

http://pandasthumb.org/archives/2011/07/turnabout-is-fa.html Attacking creationists is suspicious easy, suspiciously paradigm-consolidating, and suspiciously indicative of rival mentalities, Christian and scientific fundamentalism.

Evolution and ethics, science and religion fail…

June 28th, 2011 · No Comments

Evolution And Ethics The question of the evolution of ethics (as Huxley sensed late in life) is the Achilles heel of Darwinism. But, ironically, it is also a problem for proponents of ID, who are saddled with the Old Testaments of Moses (etc) which leave us absolutely puzzled as to the how ethics could have […]

‘Belief’ in evolution?

June 27th, 2011 · No Comments

‘Belief’ in evolution? It may be the wrong word When the contestants in the Miss USA pageant last week were asked whether evolution should be taught in schools, many volunteered that they either “believed” or “didn’t believe” in the concept. “I don’t believe in evolution,” said Miss Alabama. “They should teach both sides since some […]

Does Islam Stand Against Science? You can’t have it both ways: if you want to promote science, then critiques of Darwinism are on the table, and might help to clarify the confusion many Moslems are stuck with.

But fine-tuning is an argument about nature, and says nothing about anything beyond that. […]

Secular buddhism and bad science

June 10th, 2011 · 2 Comments

The issue of secular buddhism is important because it shows how the influence of bad science is becoming more and more dominant. You would think that people in a tradition as potent as that of buddhism could stand up to scientism and preserve the basics of their subject. But the onset of ‘secular buddhism’ shows […]
