The left needs to fill the void on the critique of darwinism

The religious right has taken over the older critique of darwinism but turned it into a subtle form of apologetics, although the ID camp as such has tried to observe a scientific neutrality. This critique of darwinism, which was originally a scientific one (cf. figures such as Fred Hoyle), focused on the issue of natural … Continue reading The left needs to fill the void on the critique of darwinism

Dawkins is obsessed and in the process has wrecked the science of biology, along with a whole cohort of strangely mesmerized biologists. When the spell of this delusion lifts people will ask how it … Continue reading Evolution, atheism, the fallacies of darwinism and the rise of mistrust on the right in science in a pandemic

 Darwinism vs ‘evolution’ and cancel culture

This could have been a great article if it could get straight on Darwinism. The Scopes Trial was a strange moment that everyone has misunderstood. But the issue was evolution and Darrow had an easy victory when the real debate (perhaps Darrow was genuinely confused) was over the issue of natural selection. This article protests … Continue reading  Darwinism vs ‘evolution’ and cancel culture
