Evolution And Ethics The question of the evolution of ethics (as Huxley sensed late in life) is the Achilles heel of Darwinism.

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 […]

“The Search for the Historical Adam”

June 7th, 2011 · No Comments
