Darwinian evolutionists are scrambling to explain why prime genetic molecules do not reflect common ancestry. Evolution News & Views
The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority, in a unanimous vote, gave preliminary approval to $18 million in tax incentives for the Ark Park. In what you might call an unusual piece of reverse evolution, Lawrence O’Donnell last night made a monkey of Ken Ham, Biblical literalists, and the Tourism Authority. The “tape” is 8 min long and worth every moment. Unfortunately, it will not be the last word on the Ark Park.... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
Photograph by Dan Moore. Photography contest, Second Place. Phalacrocorax harrisi – flightless Galápagos cormorant. Mr. Moore writes, “Having made its way to a small set of islands we now call the Galápagos and given sufficient food and no predators, the cormorant had no need to fly, so over the years lost its full-feathered wings. Its bright-orange companion is Grapsus grapsus – the Sally Lightfoot crab.”... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
What we got from NCSE: We’re gearing up for this month’s webinar, which will cover how to use online petitions as an organizing tactic, and how to make the most of them. We’ll demo some of the software people use, talk about how to write a great petition, and talk about how to use the resulting list of supporters to grow your groups and fight science denial. We’ll talk a bit about building and maintaining... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Jason Rosenhouse insists that "Human origins have no implications for the value of human life." David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
However you define the term "theory," it's good pedagogy to approach controversial scientific claims like biological evolution in a skeptical, scientific spirit. Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188
Oxford University researchers say that only 8.2% of our DNA is likely to be functional. The rest is "junk." Jonathan Wells http://www.discovery.org/p/41
So, You Think Someone's View on Origins Has No Bearing on Questions About "Meaning and Value"?
To Wesley Smith's excellent comments about Jason Rosenhouse on assisted suicide, I would only add this. David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209
I am not sure why so many "science" bloggers and writers want to opine on ethics. Perhaps having to be objective and purely evidence based gets boring. Wesley J. Smith http://www.nationalreview.com/human-exceptionalism
I discovered the assisted suicide death cult when my friend Frances killed herself under the influence of the Hemlock Society, since evolved into Compassion and Choices. Wesley J. Smith http://www.nationalreview.com/human-exceptionalism

National Academy of Sciences: Dobzhansky's "In the Light of Evolution" Mantra Is Not a Deduction, but a Premise
The NAS makes it clear that they choose Darwinism as an a priori framework in which all biological observations must be interpreted. Evolution News & Views

First, what it takes for chromosomes to condense, and we mean really condense. Evolution News & Views

Antievolutionists Say the Darndest Things
Antievolutionists often express outrage over alleged incivility from those who oppose their efforts to evade the establishment clause of the First Amendment. But they have no difficulty in dishing out the abuse themselves. Here is a sample from the Invidious Comparisons thread that documents egregious behavior on the part of the religious antievolution advocates.
Behind this student movement is a more general intellectual movement that will bear fruit in the coming century. It is a bit thin on the ground for now, but so was the Christian faith in the first century. Materialism as a philosophy is superficially powerful but moribund, as we saw when the Soviet Union collapsed without a struggle a decade ago. Methodological naturalism is a branch on the materialist tree that will lose its power to intimidate when the tree is known to be hanging in midair.
