(hat tip: Steve):
A new paradigm
I had to laugh out loud at the quote from the National Academy of Science in the Aug. 2 article "Teach rival views on life, Bush says." So, the usual suspects say "Creationism, intelligent design and other claims of supernatural intervention in the origin of life or of species are not science because they are not testable by the methods of science."
Evolution is not testable by the methods of science either! There have been numerous fossil frauds, but no legitimate fossil record has ever supported the Darwinian notion of transitional life forms. Instead, fossils point to a sudden appearance of numerous species.
Evolution was actually cooked up back in the days when the best microscopes were about as good as the ones now used in elementary school. The electron microscopes used today show an "irreducible complexity" to even life's simplest organisms that cannot be explained away by Darwin's pedestrian theory.
But rather than allowing discussion of the evidence in light of the new technology, the evolution faithful resort to name-calling and politics to banish any thought of a new paradigm in science. For those with open minds, I would suggest "Darwin's Black Box" by Michael Behe.
