I bought a copy of "The Explanation of Everything" by Lauren Grodstein. The book was an interesting read on relationships to be sure, but the ID/atheist debate was as deep as a mountain stream near its source. In the book, one female Christian has sensual urges which she acts out on the professor. Her pastor has a curious theology, at least from a Protestant worldview, which he apparently holds. The quirky male believer does an about fact to atheism. Meantime the atheist professor oddly feels the ghost of his departed wife while still an atheist, and becomes a theist, or should I say, a deist.
I was hoping for more on the debate side...
Read the ENV article by David Klinghoffer.
From ENV...The Texas State Board of Education looks set to approve science textbooks this week that fail to comply with state science standards requiring students to "analyze and evaluate" core evolutionary claims, according to a Discovery Institute scholar who advised the Board before it adopted the standards.
Dr. Stephen Meyer, author of the New York Times bestselling book Darwin's Doubt, served as a Board-appointed expert reviewer of the Texas science standards when the standards were originally developed in 2009.
Meyer expressed concerns that proposed textbooks would "leave students in the dark about contemporary mainstream scientific controversies over Darwinian evolution.
Just in time for the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis's death, a new documentary has been released exploring the beloved Christian writer's life-long struggle to find intelligent design in a world filled with cruelty, pain, and imperfection.
The documentary "C.S. Lewis and Intelligent Design" premieres on the NRB cable and satellite network and the YouTube C.S. Lewis Channel. The documentary was inspired by a book edited by Dr. John West titled The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.
Raymond Bohlin holds a doctorate in molecular biology. He received his master's degree in population genetics, the study of how adaptation and speciation is expressed by DNA. In other words, he possesses more than a passing knowledge about the theory of evolution.
He could not believe that evolutionary mechanisms could account for the dizzying complexity he saw in the living world. It was easier for him to detect the work of some unseen force ? a designer's hand guiding a spontaneous appearance of species - behind the rise of complex life. It's the sort of completely untestable idea that doesn't gain much traction among the editors and reviewers of scholarly journals.
With the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis's passing on November 22, CSC associate director John West has written a book; The Magician's Twin: C.S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society.
C.S. Lewis countered the argument from undesign with several positive arguments in favor of the existence of a transcendent intelligent cause for nature.
What happens when you publish a peer-reviewed paper that states inconvenient facts against Darwinism? Better yet, photos that cast doubt on prevailing paradigms...you get fired. At least that is what a researcher is alleging.
Ball State University is declining to release a four-member faculty panel's report on its review of assistant professor Eric Hedin's controversial "Boundaries of Science Course."
The Discovery Institute, an intelligent design think tank that is supporting physicist Hedin, are criticizing Ball State's decision to keep the records secret.
Here is a review of Darwin's Doubt by Frank Turek, who is a speaker and award-winning author/coauthor of three books; I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. Legislating Morality, and Correct, Not Politically Correct.
Seth Slabaugh of the Muncie Star Press reports that...Ball State University has hired a controversial astronomer who is a national leader in the intelligent design movement.
President Jo Ann Gora approved the hiring of Guillermo Gonzalez as an assistant professor in the department of physics and astronomy on June 12 at a salary of $57,000. He will start teaching at BSU in August.
The hiring occurred after Ball State had launched an investigation into a complaint that another assistant professor in the same department, Eric Hedin, was promoting intelligent design in a science class.
In this episode of ID the Future, David Boze and CSC Senior Fellow Dr. Jonathan Wells discuss the connections to intelligent design in the new movie Man of Steel. While the story of Superman may be fantasy, it centers on real scientific matters such as genetic manipulation and information storage inside the cell.

Evolution has become a favorite topic of the news media recently, but for some reason, they never seem to get the story straight. The staff at Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture started this Blog to set the record straight and make sure you knew "the rest of the story".
A blogger from New England offers his intelligent reasoning.
We are a group of individuals, coming from diverse backgrounds and not speaking for any organization, who have found common ground around teleological concepts, including intelligent design. We think these concepts have real potential to generate insights about our reality that are being drowned out by political advocacy from both sides. We hope this blog will provide a small voice that helps rectify this situation.

Intelligent Design The Future is a multiple contributor weblog whose participants include the nation's leading design scientists and theorists: biochemist Michael Behe, mathematician William Dembski, astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, philosophers of science Stephen Meyer, and Jay Richards, philosopher of biology Paul Nelson, molecular biologist Jonathan Wells, and science writer Jonathan Witt. Posts will focus primarily on the intellectual issues at stake in the debate over intelligent design, rather than its implications for education or public policy.
