Author Glen E. Robinson insists, “There is urgent need for a fresh and current examination of the information now available on these issues.” Davidson, NC (PRWEB) June 25, 2013 For more than 150 years, bitter controversy has raged over one of the most profound questions of our time: Which of two ways was the Universe and all life on Earth created? One is called Creationism; the other is called Evolution. “While much has happened through the years, most arguments during this...

A failure to grasp the fundamentals of biological systems may be leaving K-12 teachers and students vulnerable to claims by intelligent design creationists, new-age homeopaths and other "hucksters," according to a University of Colorado at Boulder biology professor. On the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's classic book "The Origin of Species" that first described natural selection in detail, polls still show that only about one third of Americans believe evolution is supported by...

Regarding Elliott Epstein's June 8 column, "No evolution in this debate," I believe the religion that conflicts with science is evolution. In true science, a theory is proposed to explain available evidence. Rigorous testing will expose bad theory. Evolution has been discredited but lives on in spite of contradicting evidence and its violation of fundamental principles of science. "Widely accepted" means nothing - it was once widely accepted that the sun revolved around the Earth. The...

By Michael Ruse TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - I want to talk about Darwinism - the theory of evolution of the 19th-century English naturalist Charles Robert Darwin. Before you start to groan and say that you don't think you could read another thing on the science-and-religion clash and on why Intelligent Design should or should not be taught in schools, let me assure you that that is not what I want to talk about. I want to talk about Darwin's theory itself - first introduced to the world,...

I would like to add some thoughts to Dr. Gordon's article: "Science is about open-minded inquiry". Many evolutionists are concerned about the lack of evidence to support their theory. Charles Darwin in his book: "Origin of Species, 6th edition, 1872 p. 413 states: "Why is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely gradual organic chain; and this is the most obvious and serious objection which can...

By George Pyle On his deathbed, Henry David Thoreau was supposedly asked, "Have you made your peace with God?" To which the great American philosopher replied, "We have never quarreled." Kenneth R. Miller has no quarrel with God. But this leading scientist has a serious beef with the so-called intelligent design movement. And his new book "Only a Theory: Evolution and the Battle for America's Soul," is a concise and convincing destruction of any claim that this latest evolution of...

By Jon Hurdle PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Supporters of the concept of "intelligent design" will find new ways to advance their cause to have it taught in U.S. schools despite a major setback this week, experts on both sides of the debate said on Wednesday. In a strongly-worded court ruling on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge John Jones said teaching intelligent design violated a constitutional ban on teaching religion in public schools. The decision was a blow to Christian conservatives...

By Carey Gillam TOPEKA, Kansas (Reuters) - Kansas on Tuesday became the latest U.S. state to introduce criticism of evolution into teaching standards, a move that critics charge was driven by religious zealotry. In a hearing room packed with high school students, teachers and national media, the Kansas State Board of Education on a 6-4 vote approved a new set of science standards that question the veracity of evolution theory. "This is a great day for education. This is one of the...

TOPEKA, Kan. -- A discussion about how evolution should be taught in public schools degenerated Wednesday into personal attacks among State Board of Education members. The board is reviewing proposed standards drafted by three conservative members designed to expose students to more criticism of evolution in the classroom. During the discussion, four board members who want the standards to maintain their existing evolution-friendly tone assailed the proposal. Bill Wagnon told the three...
