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

Darwin’s Vigilantes, Richard Sternberg, and Conventional Pseudoscience

Fred Reed — The Unz Review Sept 22, 2018

 I am sorry. I admit it: I am a bad person. I promise I will never write about this again. Well, sort of never. It’s just too much fun. Anyway, it’s not my fault. My childhood makes me do it. Maybe I ate lead paint.
Science is supposed to be objective study of nature, impelled by a willingness to follow the evidence impartially wherever it leads. For the most part it works this way. In the case of emotionally charged topics, it does not. For example, racial intelligence, cognitive differences between the sexes, and weaknesses in Darwinian evolution. Scientists who do perfectly good research in these fields, but arrive at forbidden conclusions, will be hounded out of their fields, fired from academic and research positions, blackballed from employment, and have their careers destroyed.
sternbergA prime example is Richard Sternberg, a Ph.D. in biology (Molecular Evolution) from Florida International University and a Ph.D. in Systems Science (Theoretical Biology) from Binghamton University. He is not a lightweight. From 2001-2007 he was staff scientist at the National Center for Biotechnology Information; 2001-2007 a Research Associate at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

Signature in the Cell and Intelligent Design

Fred Reed — The Unz Review July 15, 2018

A question that never ceases to fascinate is that of how life originated, and how and why it has progressed as it seems to have. The official story and de rigueur explanation is that that life came about through spontaneous generation from seawater. Believing this is the mark of an Advanced Person, whether one has the slightest knowledge of the matter. In academia researchers have been fired and careers ruined for questioning it. If you doubt that scientists can be ideological herd animals, as petty, intolerant, vindictive, and backstabbing as professors, read Heretic, by the PhD biotechnologist and biochemist Matti Leisola, who fell on the wrong side of the herd. This establishment’s continuing effort to stamp out heresy looks increasingly like a protracted desperation.
The other, more intuitive view of life is that of Intelligent Design. When one sees an immensely complicated system all of whose parts work together with effect and apparent purpose, such as an automobile or a cell, it is natural to think that someone or something designed it. There is much evidence for this, certainly enough to intrigue those of open mind and intelligence. Those of a philosophic bent may note that Freud, Marx, and Darwin are equally relics of Nineteenth Century determinism, and that Darwin wrote when almost nothing was known about much of biology. Note also that the sciences are tightly constrained and limited by their premises, unable to think outside of their chosen box. Others, wiser, wonder whether there are not more thing in heaven and earth.

WickedPedia Deletes Paleontologist Turned Intelligent Design

“Naughty, naughty! Shouldn’t do that! Goes against our religion! Away with you, rebel, breaking ranks like that with all of us hoodwinked, money corrupted Darwinian sycophants who spurned real science (knowledge) for fancy fables. You should hang! Is your name Galileo, by chance? Ah, he is German on top of it.  INQUISITION!!!!  INQUISITION!!!! INQUISITION!!!! …..Where are those bastards, when you need them, to gulag an inconvenient truther, or better, exterminate a NON politically correct, populist, fascist, capitalist, misogynist, homophobic, pseudo academic….” Hello?”

Shows you, that you are what you read! And you read what you prefer! And you prefer what you CHOOSE! And you choose either the inconvenient TRUTH or a state supported comfortable lie. So you either spiritually die for a lie, OR we move with the truth! Which do you? Continue reading WickedPedia Deletes Paleontologist Turned Intelligent Design

Killer Whales — Zombie Science Author Explains a Fatal Challenge to Darwinism

In his new book Zombie Science: More Icons of Evolution, biologist Jonathan Wells devotes a chapter to the fatal challenge to Darwinian theory posed by the enigma of whales. In a brief video conversation, starting with how the wolf-life fossil Pakicteus (“Pakistani whale”) was named, you can see Dr. Wells trying gamely to suppress a smile at the absurdity of it all. For more about Zombie Science, Dr. Wells’ other books and his research please visit https://iconsofevolution.com.

In September 2013, Dr. Meyer joined host Eric Metaxas for a stimulating conversation before a live audience about Meyer’s bestselling book Darwin’s Doubt. Video courtesy Socrates in the City. Posted with permission.

Stephen Meyer is the author of The New York Times best selling book Darwin’s Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the case for Intelligent Design (HarperOne, 2013). For more information on the book and to order your copy visit http://www.darwinsdoubt.com

Information drives the development of life. But what is the source of that information? Could it have been produced by an unguided Darwinian process? Or did it require intelligent design? The Information Enigma is a fascinating 21-minute documentary that probes the mystery of biological information, the challenge it poses to orthodox Darwinian theory, and the reason it points to intelligent design. The video features molecular biologist Douglas Axe and Stephen Meyer, author of the books Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt.
