Intelligent Design in Biology

En attendant que Jean Staune nous éclaire, voici de quoi s’amuser : Intelligent Design in Biology: the Current Situation and Future Prospects
By: Phillip E. Johnson

For now, the influential scientific organizations are passionately committed to explanations that consider only material causes, so they reject out of hand any suggestion that intelligent cause may also have played some role.

Muslim creationism/ID spam

Creation vs. Darwin takes Muslim twist in Turkey – Yahoo! News:

ISTANBUL (Reuters) – A lavishly illustrated ‘Atlas of Creation’ is mysteriously turning up at schools and libraries in Turkey, proclaiming that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is the real root of terrorism. Arriving unsolicited by post, the large-format tome offers 768 glossy pages of photographs and easy-to-read text to prove that God created the world with all its species.

The root of the terrorism that plagues our planet is not any of the divine religions, but atheism, and the expression of atheism in our times (is) Darwinism and materialism

A voir s’organiser différentes factions voulant discuter les relations entre Science et religions, quelles que soient leurs motivations, le besoin d’organiser une réponse se fait sentir. Surtout pour quelqu’un qui se trouve isolé de facto et qu’il observe que l’establishment scientifique ne prend pas position clairement et publiquement. (suite…)

in greenhouse speciation

From ScienceDaily:

« The fact that the association is statistically significant despite the crudeness of our estimates suggests that the true biological association is very strong, » Funk says. « Darwin’s famous book was called ‘On the Origin of Species,’ but it was really about natural selection on traits rather than speciation. Since our study suggests that natural selection is a general cause of speciation, it seems that Darwin chose an appropriate title after all. »

Intelligent Design FAQ

The following citation is from the Society of Kansas Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. Quite interesting, quite scientific.

I’m confused about Intelligent Design’s stance on the theory of evolution, can you summarize it?

Of course. The evidence gathered by Intelligent Design proponents clearly shows that:

  1. Evolution does not happen.
  2. Evolution happens in some cases.
  3. Some evolution is directed evolution.
  4. Natural selection does not work.
  5. Natural selection works in many cases, but not all.
  6. Microevolution does not happen.
  7. Microevolution is evidence of directed evolution.
  8. Macroevolution does not happen.
  9. Macroevolution is evidence of directed evolution.
  10. Life was created 6000 years ago.
  11. Life was formed over millions or billions of years through design and the processes of directed evolution.
  12. Life was formed over millions or billions of years through design, and the processes of directed and undirected evolution.

Basically, we think something is wrong with the theory of evolution, we’re just not sure what.

Behe’s Response to Kitzmiller available ! A little bit late for the case I think. Wasn’t he the lead witness for the defence? (at lest he say so, page 2 of the document, paragraph 1).

I’ll give it a run
