The Mysterious Origins of Fossils

It’s often claimed that fossils provide convincing evidence for Darwinian evolution in the history of life. But is that really the case? Join paleontologist Günter Bechly, geologist Casey Luskin, and evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg as they explore the state of the debate over the fossil record and the evidence for Darwinian evolution. Plus, philosopher of science Stephen Meyer, author of the New York Times bestseller Darwin’s Doubt weighs in as well.

Not By Chance

The modern theory of intelligent design was not developed in response to a legal setback for creationists in 1987. Instead, it was first formulated in the late 1970s and early 1980s by a group of scientists-Charles Thaxton, Walter Bradley, Roger Olson, and Dean Kenyon-who were trying to account for an enduring mystery of modern biology Read More ›

List of Fine-Tuning Parameters

“Fine-tuning” refers to various features of the universe that are necessary conditions for the existence of complex life, including the initial conditions and “brute facts” of the universe, the laws of nature or the numerical constants present in those laws, and local features of habitable planets.

Information, Specified Complexity and the Explanatory Filter

Far from being “Gee whiz that’s complicated; it must be designed!,” ID theory relies on well-defined concepts such as specified complexity and an explanatory filter that allows one to distinguish designed events from either chance, necessity, or a combination of the two. Read More ›

Introduction to The Privileged Planet

Even more mysterious than the fact that our location is so congenial to diverse measurement and discovery is that these same conditions appear to correlate with habitability. Read More ›

Using Statistical Methods to Model the Fine-tuning of Molecular Machines and Systems

The Journal of Theoretical Biology has published an explicitly pro-intelligent design article, “Using statistical methods to model the fine-tuning of molecular machines and systems.” Let’s take a closer look at the contents. Read More ›
