Creationism and Surveying the Evidence

There is a reason why creationists wish to debate and not do research. For starters? There is nothing to research. Biblical research with regards to creationism boils down to “It was magic all along”. There is no divine finger print that can be detected, merely evidence that can be misunderstood. It is why creationists are …

Jewish Chronicle – I do not think we should teach creationism in schools

This one’s by Abraham Hilsenrath on the Jewish Chronicle. It is rather puzzling to hear non-Christian and Islamic creationists, we often forget that Jews share the same creation mythos and while they may pay lip service to the story they don’t “actively” believe in it. But there are conservative Jews who do if we think …

Todd Friel’s Evolution Ignorance

You may have seen this on Pharyngula, you may have seen this elsewhere but Todd Friel’s rather bizarre piece is the perfect thing for me to tackle in my post Surgery (exam not as a patient) haze. And it’s been a while, so this is a list.

Rejection of Some Creationism Still Doesn’t Make Your View Right

It’s getting closer to the Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham debate and creationists are girding their loins for what they think is yet another assault on religion/attempt to do science. But there is a schism between the Intelligent Designers and the Young Earthers with what’s right and what’s wrong. Which is like arguing over which …

Do I get a special Atheist Prize for being Quote Mined by Ken Ham?

Well do I? I mean isn’t that the gold standard of having made it as a “professional atheist”? Is that not what separates rank amateur from Richard Dawkins? When Ken Ham badly quotes you? And not just that! He’s also drumming up support using me to get his supporters into the pews. But Ken is …

Ken Ham takes on atheists, progressive Christians and Bill Nye

Ham’s debating Bill Nye. We all know this, we all got the news. Ham vs. Nye, Dr. Dino’s successor as “Creationist Of the Day” vs. The Science Guy. My take on it? Bill’s not going to achieve anything. Science does not progress by debate, Either Bill Nye has to be packing some serious debate firepower …

The Banana Man Cometh

It is shocking to a Brit who’s country carries Darwin on the currency to hear the “rise of Creationism” in the USA. When I was younger, I participated in the great creationist battles of the Internet. Back when a lot of the creationists genuinely figured that their research matched science. But the legacy of those …

Creationist Medicine – A Review of a Creationist Medical Paper

Just because you have a degree in a science doesn’t mean what you do is scientific. I have long pointed out that there exist “Doctors” such as Mayer Eisenstein and Suzanne Humpheries who despite being arguably well educated and probably better trained than myself, do not hold themselves with the scientific rigour associated with medicine …

Coyne Toss – Atheism, History and the Discovery Institute

Jerry Coyne is going to be speaking in Poland. Now this is a pretty big deal, because Poland has an anti-Blasphemy law. However the Discovery Institute thinks that’s a bad thing. And what ensues is a complete rewrite of reality and a fitting insight into the delusion of the modern creationist movement.

Comfort Food

This one isn’t from the Master of Banana that is Ray Comfort but from the Abandoned to Christ blog by Sunny Shell. For those who are unaware, Professor PZ Myers did an interview with Ray Comfort that turned out to be a little bit crooked. And Professor Myers said so about it. But this has …
