“If all the geneticists had approached the black box of pseudogenes
with the ID mentality, it is quite possible that our understanding of
gene regulation would have been propelled forward by years or decades
– and maybe even our progress toward curing cancer. Ideas make a
difference.”

“Rather than dismiss something out of hand as junk because it doesn’t
fit the current Central Dogma, the ID scientist looks for evidence of
function. He or she assumes an overarching purpose and design in the
system, at least in its salient features. Maybe no function will be
found for a particular phenomenon, but at least the ID scientist asks
different questions: not “what is this junk doing in the way?” but
“where does this puzzle piece fit in the picture?” In this particular
case, an ID scientist would have been rewarded not with surprise so
much as satisfaction: expectations fulfilled. The only surprise would
be not that the unknown piece has a function, but that the function is
more vast, marvelous and intricate than expected. Has the genome
really just doubled? Picture the Darwinist and the IDer saying “Good
heavens!” with completely different facial expressions and tones of
voice at that revelation.”

Secular Geology Admits to Rapid Canyon Formation by Megafloods

“If the secular geologists had been reading the creationist journals
for decades, which are way ahead of the curve on this topic, they
would not be so clueless. The Creation Research Society Quarterly,
Journal of Creation and other peer-reviewed journals written by
creation scientists, with field research and PhDs, have for years been
talking about the power of catastrophic processes to produce the Grand
Canyon and other large earth features in just days and weeks by
breached dams and other megaflooding processes. This is nothing new,
but the secular journals and news media act like it is.”

Several years of personal struggle resulted in a new understanding,
and a very strong conviction that the Primary Axiom was most
definitely wrong. More importantly, I became convinced that the Axiom
could be shown to be wrong to any reasonable and open-minded
individual.

Stephen Hawking: “Science Will Win”

The “why” question I would like to have answered is why scientists who
are also atheists (or philosophical natrualists), ask “why?” On a
worldview that explains everything in completely naturalistic terms as
the end product of blind, purposeless forces, asking “why” seems
almost silly.

Embittered evolutionist becomes rejoicing ‘creation evangelist’

“We ridiculed the scientists who still prayed to their ‘non-existent’
God and read their fairy stories. They were deluded, they had to
be—please tell me they were; if I was wrong, the consequences to my
life were nothing short of cataclysmic.”

Evolution and Entropy: The Magic of Sunlight | Uncommon Descent

Evolution and Entropy: The Magic of Sunlight | Uncommon Descent
“Does the second law of thermodynamics pose a problem for evolution?
Daniel Styer doesn’t think so. In fact, in a recent paper he found
that any entropy decrease here on Earth due to evolution would have
been dwarfed by the entropy increase of solar radiation contributing
to the cosmic microwave background.”
