Despite the Darwinist community’s long-standing campaign to help the public come to the “correct” view that “evolution and religion are compatible,” public skepticism of evolution remains high. (See this link for documentation.) This would logically lead one to the conclusion that there are other factors besides religion that drive skepticism of evolution. Perhaps, one might even suggest, for many people the issue has a lot to do with science!Read More ›
As you may know, last year the Kansas State Board of Education revised the state’s science standards to encourage the teaching of scientific evidence that both favors and presents the limitations of Darwin’s theory.Read More ›
Critical Analysis of Evolution is Not the Same as Teaching Intelligent Design A favorite Darwinist conspiracy theory is to claim that education policies requiring critical analysis of evolution are simply a guise for teaching intelligent design (ID). Right now anti-science groups in Kansas are claiming that the state’s new science standards are pushing intelligent design. If you agree that children should be fully informed about evolution, join with like-minded citizens and stand up in support of the Kansas state science standards. Go to Standupforscience.com and sign the petition today The Kansas science standards do not include intelligent design. In spreading this falsehood, opponents of the standards ignore the following clear statement by the Kansas Board of Education in the standards. Read More ›
Stand Up For Science, Stand Up For Kansas
Should public schools censor scientific evidence just because it challenges Darwin’s theory of evolution? Or, should teachers present ALL the scientific evidence, including both the strengths and weaknesses of evolutionary theory?Read More ›
Recently Discovery President Bruce Chapman sat down for an interview with Discovery senior fellow, author, and technology guru George Gilder. The subject: evolution and intelligent design.
Gilder also has a major essay in the new issue of National Review, titled “Evolution and Me: Darwinian Theory has Become an All-Purpose Obstacle to Thought Rather than an Enabler of Scientific Advance.”(subscription required)Read More ›
A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism — www.dissentfromdarwin.com During recent decades, new scientific evidence from many scientific disciplines such as cosmology, physics, biology, “artificial intelligence” research, and others have caused scientists to begin questioning Darwinism’s central tenet of natural selection and studying the evidence supporting it in greater detail. Yet public TV programs, educational policy statements, and science textbooks have asserted that Darwin’s theory of evolution fully explains the complexity of living things. The public has been assured that all known evidence supports Darwinism and that virtually every scientist in the world believes the theory to be true. The scientists on this list dispute the first claim and stand as living testimony in contradiction to the second. Since Discovery Institute launched Read More ›

This week, Jason Anderson interviews Joe Manzari of the American Enterprise Institute, about his article on whether or not Dover school board members handed over to the ACLU a taxpayer funded gift.
The taxpayers in Dover Pennsylvania may have been fleeced by the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AUSCS) for a shocking $1 million dollar bill.Read More ›
The South Carolina Education Oversight Committee unanimously ratified high school biology standards requiring students to understand why “scientists continue to investigate and critically analyze aspects of evolutionary theory.” The South Carolina State Board of Education adopted the standards unanimously last month, and submitted them to the EOC for approval. South Carolina’s new evolution standard does not require teaching the theory of intelligent design.Read More ›
Dr. Stephen Meyer, director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Cutlure, and an originator of intelligent design theory made the case for weighing the theory about how we got here on its scientific merits in an article published earlier this year in the Dallas Morning News. This week you can hear the article read, or you can click here to read the article online.Read More ›
