Darwin’s Vigilantes, Reichard 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.
