This summer, Fixed Point Foundation (who brought you the "Lookup316" Super Bowl commercial) will address the Creation debate taking place within the Church. THREE VIEWS. YOU DECIDE. Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) April 14, 2011 The notion that the Church is monolithic on the questions surrounding creation and evolution is hardly accurate. In fact, Christians are deeply divided over the issues. There is an intense debate among believers about how to interpret the Creation account of Genesis, the...

By Steve Denton JAMES Barry often writes complete rubbish but his attack on John Marchant and Genesis (Echo, August 15) really takes the biscuit. Where did you get these scientific "facts" from Mr Barry, the Beano? Darwin's theory of evolution is exactly that, a theory. It is unproven and probably unprovable. The discovery of DNA has proved that the most complex forms of life existed in the original species. DNA can only lose information as it is passed from one generation to...

By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal appeals court, in a case involving American International Group Inc., has ruled that a key provision of U.S. civil rights law does not allow non-citizens to recover from their employers for alleged discriminatory conduct outside the United States.

Many at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the nation's largest gathering of scientists, spoke out over the weekend against what they called religious pressure in public schools. And they enlisted the help of about 300 teachers from across the Midwest who attended the conference to discuss the national debate over evolution. "We are not rolling over...

Editor, New Era: Regarding the Nov. 12 article on the Dover Area School District mandating the teaching of intelligent design "to be an alternative to the theory of evolution," Pennsylvania is not the first state to try to teach an alternative to humanistic evolution. Other states such as Louisiana and Kansas have tried "equal time" creationism to be taught to their public school students. Creation science uses evidence gathered by thousands of scientists which contradicts the assumptions...
