Descent of Man Revisited World History: The Hidden Clue to Human Evolution by [John Landon]

I am both pleased and puzzled by the success of this book with thousands of downloads: published in 2012 using Adobe Lightening Print and created with the remarkable, and for its time revolutionary software put out by Adobe. Among its offering is the remarkable Indesign SW which allows text processing far superior to Microsoft’s Word, itself a remarkable innovation of the computer revolution. But Indesign has all the components of an old-fashioned linotype system in the way it computes spacing with fractional spacing of text. Such technology in the hands of those outside of the academic realm of credentialed idiots was a turning point, although the reign of enforced paradigms and cancel tactics is still alive and well.

The evolution debate is shifting slowly away from the Darwin propaganda machine and the reckoning of the inability of the world of Big Science to stop a false form of pseudo-science from falling into the hands of a corrupt social elite, not the least the realm of social Darwinist ideology is still to come. The reputation of science may never recover.

better late than never…//Do we need a new theory of evolution?  

Better late than never: can science restore its reputation after such a long confusion exposed long ago?

The long read: A new wave of scientists argues that mainstream evolutionary theory needs an urgent overhaul. Their opponents have dismissed them as misguided careerists – and the conflict may determine the future of biology

Design in world history, the left’s blindness on Darwin…//The Silence of the Evolutionary Biologists | Evolution News

Another in a series by Dembski as Evo-News. As noted many times here, the left has gotten stuck in Darwinism and is unable to get unstuck. But the critique of Darwinism at such sites as EvoNews has crept on the Darwin fanatics. These sites are bastions of the conservative right but with ID they have moderated their religious/conservative take to the point that one can profitably consider their frequent contributions to discussions of evolution.

Marxists need to move on from Marx’s plug for Darwin and should consider that the debriefing of Darwinism should have been a task for the left. Failure to do so has left them ‘left behind’ when they could have better debriefed the issue as in part ideology.

I do not share the hysteria of the mainstream secularists over design, or ‘Intelligent’ Design. The quotes are there because the issue of specification in the Dembski (assuming I understand what he means by the term) won’t work for theological implications. If not, I can state my point without that term: evidence for design cannot use the term ‘intelligent’ safely if they can’t specify constructively the ‘designer’. The comparison of Mt. Rainer and Mt. Rushmore is apt, but in theology we only have a mountain Rainer: there is nothing comparable to Mt. Rushmore’s specification of the faces of presidents. The term ‘god’ is available to the discussion because it is part of what we are trying (and failing) to specify.
As a secularist who studies history I find world history to be designed to a degree that is remarkable. But ironically the ‘design’ behind, say, the early history of Israel compounds the issue. We cannot ascribe the design here to a divinity.

We addressed this question here already: cf. the essays in the recurring ‘Some essay posts’.

It is sad to watch the world of science so fatally addicted to Darwinism. The credibility of science is at stake and biologists seem oblivious.

Intelligent design’s scientific program can, at least in part, be viewed as an attempt to unmask Darwinist credulity.

the eonic effect: a glimpse of evolution?!…//On Darwinism and the Abdication of Reason | Evolution News

This is an excellent piece of critical/secular Darwiniana, and in the context today of beating Marxists over the head, a useful reminder that a secular humanist can see through Darwinism and survive cancel culture, although I fear that being published in the ID site shows still dark clouds overhead. I have often berated Marxists for their inability to shake off Darwinism, with its atrocious social Darwinist crypto-ideology.
