Open Letter to the United Methodist Church on “intelligent design”

W.R. Elsberry's The Austringer - Wed, 2016-01-20 13:51
The Discovery Institute got upset that they weren’t allowed a table to promote “intelligent design” at the United Methodist Church’s general conference this year. The DI has been having quite the hissy fit over it, in fact, and has been encouraging people to be outraged about it and write the UMC to try to get… Read More »

Update on the Tree of Birds

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2016-01-08 18:16
The tree of birds just got a bit more accurate with a study published last October. We first covered the ever-evolving tree in 2014, when we posted about a study in Science magazine that used phylogenomics and thousands of genes sequenced from 48 bird species to produce what was thought to be the most accurate phylogenetic tree of birds to date (Jarvis et. al., 2014; see their tree here). Since then, a different team of... Emily Thompson http://cartwrig.ht/people/

Dodging Darwin: How Ken Ham's Ark is slowly embracing evolution

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2016-01-08 18:16
By David MacMillan. David has been fascinated by the creation/evolution controversy for many years. Growing up, he was fully committed to creationist apologetics. He purchased a lifetime charter membership to the Creation Museum and even had blog posts featured on the Answers in Genesis website. During college, he continued to actively pursue creation apologism as he earned a degree in physics, but began to recognize the mounting religious and scientific problems with young-earth creationism. His... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2016-01-08 18:16
Zack Kopplin, who has been opposing the antievolution nonsense in Louisiana since 2008, has an interesting new article in The Daily Beast: Kopplin, Zack (2015). Creationism Whistleblower: ‘Academic Freedom’ Is Sneak Attack on Evolution. The Daily Beast. December 28, 2015. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl[…]olution.html Kopplin has really gotten the goods on what these “stealth creationism” bills mean on the ground – of course, what they mean is straight-up creationism taught in the public schools. Kopplin quotes from documents... Nick Matzke http://www.talkdesign.org
