Landon targets Darwinism and Dawkins

See:

http://darwiniana.com/2011/08/24/dawkins-to-perry/

Landon writes: Dawkins seems nicely evasive, and cautious here: evolution is a fact. More than that is a problem. But Darwinists are lucky: those who criticize the reigning paradigm invariably target ‘evolution’ when they should target ‘Darwinism’, etc… This constant bungling of the critique is actually perpetuating the Darwinian myth.

Ann Coulter defeats Darwinian evolution

See:

http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2011-08-24.html

Coulter writes: Thanks to advances in microscopes, thousands of such complex mechanisms have been found since Darwin’s day. He had to explain only simple devices, such as beaks and gills. If Darwin were able to come back today and peer through a modern microscope to see the inner workings of a cell, he would instantly abandon his own theory.

Spirituality of being One

See:

http://www.examiner.com/new-thought-in-san-francisco/what-is-spirituality-all-about

Article reads: Spirituality is that we are all One, just atoms rearranged in a different way.  Different physical manifestations of the One.  When you consider that, that you are a physical manifestation of the One, what do you wish to do with that?   Know…be still and know…and then go and be love.  That is what spirituality is all about.

Boundaries of science

See:

Article reads: Neither the Left nor the Right is guiltless here. The Left attempts to stretch science to justify what are really non-scientific viewpoints, but conservatives often react by attacking the underlying science, rather than making the more complicated — but more accurate — point that the actual scientific findings published in peer-reviewed journals (i.e., “the science”) don’t really imply the political assertion.

Evolution before our eyes

See:

http://www.evolutionnews.org/2011/08/no_evolution_before_our_eyes049911.html

Article reads: Darwinists taunt us with the purported knockdown observation that, “Well, how can you not believe in evolution” — translation: the power of unguided evolution by natural selection to drive speciation — “when we see evolution going on before our very eyes?” They don’t actually mean the origination of new species, of course. But rather, minor changes of a more decorative kind that become fixed.

Chiropractic philosophy and vitalism

See:

http://www.dynamicchiropractic.com/mpacms/dc/article.php?id=55469

Article reads: Implicit in chiropractic is a philosophy of vitalism, yet many chiropractors have been challenged by the theoretical constructs of the Palmers and Stephenson. Bound by the lexicon of the times in an era preceding the quantum revolution in theoretical physics, these pioneers sought to describe concepts that challenged the mechanistic world view of the allopaths.

Hinduism gave us evolution before Darwin

Article: And as to evolution, more than 2,000 years before Darwin rocked Christendom with his heresy, the Hindu Puranas described the “Dasha Avataras”–the ten Avatars, or incarnations, of Lord Vishnu.  Lord Vishnu is said to assume an avatar at various periods in history to guide creation and preserve its eternal dharma–meaning that which is necessary to sustain and uphold.  And so God is described in the earliest of creation to have taken the avatar of a fish, followed by a tortoise (amphibian), boar, half man-half lion, short human (scientists only recently found that early humans were likely short-statured), and then a warrior with an axe.  The latter incarnations are the well known avatars of Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, and Lord Buddha as the most recent.

Note that this evolution is vitalistic, and so it is not natural selection.

Popularity of alternative medicine

See:

Article reads: Your doctor or nurse might be more likely than you to turn to dietary supplements and alternative therapies such as acupuncture and chiropractic care, according to a recent study in the journal Health Services Research. It found that 76 percent of health-care workers reported using alternative or complementary therapy in the preceding year compared with 63 percent of the general population.

The timescale for macroevolution

See:

http://www.bitsofscience.org/evolution-million-years-2784/

Article reads: Such macroevolution evolution is large-scale, meaning it can lead to new species or for instance a significant increase or decrease in species’ body sizes. It takes places at an interval of ‘between 1 and 360’ million years, the researchers write.

Confusion in science

See:

http://www.paysonroundup.com/news/2011/aug/23/confusion-scientific-community/

Article reads: Most scientists who have been trained in the evolutionary dogma refer to natural selection, which can be observed, as evolution and the general public won’t realize when the scientists switch over to one kind of animal becoming another kind, as inferred in the article on bats in the April 8, 2011 Payson Roundup written by the same author. That type of evolution has never been observed, it has only been inferred based on evolutionary presuppositions used in their interpretation of the fossil record.
