Whenever you’re having a discussion about God and science, someone will say, “There’s no possible way that X could have happened all by itself, therefore there is a creator.”
Invariably you hear this retort: Read more »
I had a conversation with a guy who explains why he rejects Common Descent:
“Where I’m not buying evolution in large scale, again goes back to the collection (or lack) of “transitionals” to prove this happened on a grander scale. All need to be in place for the large scale to have existed.
It’s one thing to make claims on microorganisms (and I can see it justified). It’s a far greater stretch to make the other areas fit. Read more »

For 25 years Richard Morgan was a card-carrying atheist and flaming Richard Dawkins fan. Born in the UK, living in France, he came to Chicago to tell this special story. Read more »
I’ve been corresponding with a professional scientist about randomness in biology. I told him that the Neo-Darwinian paradigm of “random mutation” is dead, and most people just haven’t gotten the memo yet.
He asked me to offer citations from the literature showing that evolution is non-random. This is what I sent him: Read more »
