Richard Dawkins' Extended Phenotype (EP) concept is as relevant now as when it was first proposed 26 years ago and is not at odds with other evolutionary explanations. This was the conclusion of a recent workshop on the Extended Phenotype today, organized by the European Science Foundation (ESF). The EP states that the genes of an organism can be expressed beyond its immediate biological boundary, extending for example to birds' nests, or the behavior of hosts infected by parasites. The key...

DESPITE the impossibility of evolution ever happening, the evolutionist is certain that it has. The rigorously tested scientific evidence of evolution that J. C.

Joe Dennehy (Waikato Times letters, August 14) managed to take the ploy of elephant-hurling (in debate) to new heights, by actually using elephants to "prove`'' evolution. What he did, in fact, was to demonstrate the very observable (and scientific) fact of natural selection - which is not evolution. Evolutionists use this decoy argument deliberately - and especially so the Oxford "don'' Richard Dawkins. They do this because they know that the two key tenets of the theory of...

Children from a Year 11 science class are walking across the beach on Dorset's Jurassic Coast, picking up pebble after pebble in search of evidence of evolution. For some, the exciting discovery of ammonite fossils hidden inside the rock, and clear explanations from presenter and scientist Richard Dawkins of what they are looking at add enough physical proof to their classroom lesson to convince them that Charles Darwin's theory - first published 150 years ago - is correct. But several of...
