That scientist guy, raiders of the lost 24-IPC, just like home, 1 in 38,000, and more!
A poll in Britain reveals widespread doubt over Darwinism—or does it?
A survey conducted by ComRes (to coincide with the bicentennial of Darwin’s birth) asked just over 2,000 respondents whether they agree with the statement, “Evolution alone is not enough to explain the complex structures of some living things, so the intervention of a designer is needed at key stages.” Just over half—51 percent—of respondents agreed, but 40 percent disagreed; the rest weren’t sure.
It could almost be the plot of an evolutionary Indiana Jones adventure: deep beneath the sands of Arabia, lost and hidden for millennia, lay a secret molecule that transcends what we think we know.
Astronomers have found yet another “Earth-like” planet (how many does this make, anyway?). Once again, it’s not exactly home away from home.
How many alien civilizations are in the Milky Way? Between 361 and 37,964, reports one “scientist.”
The Search for Terrestrial Intelligence continues after University of Edinburgh researcher Duncan Forgan conducted the estimation, published in the International Journal of Astrobiology. At least Forgan admitted, “It’s a process of quantifying our ignorance.”
Forgan came up with the estimation through a simulation of a galaxy “much like our own,” with life evolving on the various planets according to three scenarios: “it is difficult for life to be formed but easy for it to evolve”; “life was easily formed but struggled to develop intelligence”; or “life could be passed from one planet to another during asteroid collisions.”
In addition to presupposing evolution, Forgan assumed “Earth is an average case.” Both of those presumptions fly in the face of scientific evidence—so it’s no surprise that Forgan’s prediction of the number of alien civilizations does, too!
Does the fossil discovery of an early “whale” offer evidence for evolution or does it merely reinforce presuppositions?
Experiments to produce hybrid human–animal embryos have been unsuccessful. Will that mean anything to advocates of embryonic stem cell research?
Darwinists at the University of Vermont have done a great service to Ben Stein by proving the point he made in the film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.
