In Two Weeks, “Mathematical Challenges” to Darwin Gets Half a Million Views

ANCIENT PATRIARCHS EDITOR: If it wasn’t for the continuous, voluminous, massive stream of highly illustrated propaganda, daily emanating from the official mainstream TV, Hollywood, Magazines, internet media, academia, Wikipedia spouts, and most scholastic institutes, Yes, they are all in on it. Darwinism would have died a very long time ago. In spite of the few important Darwinian apostates like Dr. Gelernter Darwinism is still very alive in the minds of the uninformed who are gullible enough to fall for the official paradigm. And precisely that shows that this entire flooding of the minds of the masses is totally un-natural. Of course we knew that already for a long time not only about Biology, but about many other fields in Science, Politics, and especially finances. But lets not digress. Mankind is perhaps not “brainwashed” which would exclude free will, but they are definitely not well informed — on purpose — and you don’t need a aluminum hat to come to such a true conclusion. Truth is… the majority of Humanity is flooded by lies. and that is the reason why things are not getting better but worse, as a network of lies fabricate slavery and prisoners, where as the TRUTH does set us free!

In Florence, Italy, back in June, Stephen Meyer, David Gelernter, and David Berlinski got together with Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution to talk about “Mathematical Challenges to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.” The episode of Hoover’s interview series, Uncommon Knowledge, has been up now for a little over two weeks and has already amassed more than half a million views on YouTube. Actually, the precise number is 522,800, since July 22. Not bad!

The occasion for their conversation, a delightful hour in length, is Gelernter’s recent essay in The Claremont Review of Books explaining his apostasy from Darwinism. The renowned Yale computer scientist and polymath attributes his change of mind to reading books by Meyer (Darwin’s Doubt, Signature in the Cell) and Berlinski (The Deniable Darwin).

This is a great and quite funny interaction among vivid personalities and profound scientific and humanistic thinkers. As I’ve pointed out already, the interest lies not only in Dr. Gelernter’s personal journey toward evolution skepticism but in his testimony about how Darwinism is enforced among scientists and scholars in American universities.

“You take your life in your hands to challenge it intellectually,” says Professor Gelernter, who ought to know. “They will destroy you if you challenge it.” As our friend Denyse O’Leary notes, this comes from someone who has survived not just life in academia, but a terror attack directed at him personally, by the Unabomber, that cost him the use of a hand and an eye. When someone with that background tells you Darwinists will “destroy you” for criticizing their theory, or they’ll try to do so, I’d take that seriously.

If you missed it, see also Robinson and Berlinski in an outstanding one-on-one discussion about The Deniable Darwin.

Correction: Ha, in the time it took me to write this post, another 500+ people watched Robinson, Meyer, Gelernter, and Berlinski. The number of views now stands at 523,314.



Leading Yale Professor Pushes Back Against Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

Via 21st Century Wire – August 4, 2019

Was Darwin wrong? Bring this question up in mainstream academia and you’re likely to be attacked by colleague and media operatives alike, if not run-out of any institution you’re working at.

According to some, the ‘glory days’ of science are over. In The End of Science, author John Horgan contends that, “Science will keep extending and tweaking its current paradigms, like evolution by natural selection and the big bang, but there won’t be any more comparably profound ‘revelations or revolutions.’”

Others are taking this inquiry a bit further, and actually dismantling the highest sacred cows of science, including the seemingly untouchable: Darwin’s theory of evolution. They are asking a fundamental question: since new evidence and knowledge that functioning proteins are extremely rare, then maybe Darwin should be replaced with a theory of intelligent design? If so, then the following two questions are essential:

  • Has modern science developed institutionalized dogmatic belief structures that are similar to that of the church?
  • Has Darwinism really failed?

Probing for answers… Continue reading Leading Yale Professor Pushes Back Against Darwin’s Theory of Evolution
