ANGLICAN BISHOP APPALLED

ANGLICAN BISHOP APPALLED, according to Anglican News (Diocese of Canberra & Goulburn, Australia) March 2007, p2. In a response to Richard Dawkins’ book "The God Delusion", Bishop George Browning writes: "Like you (Richard Dawkins) I am appalled by the teachings of creationism and of intelligent design. My reason for taking the teaching seriously rather than dismissing it as irrelevant, is that I am afraid children will either grow up as bigots, or will throw away the treasure of their faith ...   Click here for more...

ATTENBOROUGH ON EVOLUTION EDUCATION
ATTENBOROUGH NOTABLE QUOTABLE as Nature interviews David Attenborough on education (Nature vol. 457, p967, 19 Feb 2009):
Nature: Why is teaching evolution now more important than ever?
Attenborough: Because of the influence of the Bible's book of Genesis, which says the Lord God said 'go forth and multiply' to Adam and Eve and 'the natural world is there for you to dominate, you have dominion of the animals and plants of the world'. That b...   Click here for more...

AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO
AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO: “Let us then omit the conjectures of men who know not what they say, when they speak of the origin and nature of the human race ... They are deceived too, by those highly mendacious documents which profess to give a history of many thousand years, though, reckoning, by the sacred writings, we find that not 6000 years have yet passed.”

AUSSIE PROFESSOR ON COST OF CLIMATE
AUSSIE PROFESSOR ON COST OF CLIMATE POLICIES in The Courier Mail, June 18 2007 p16. Prof. Bob Carter, Environmental Scientist, James Cook University stated: “In one of the more expensive ironies of history, the expenditure of more than $US 50 billion on research into global warming since 1990 has failed to demonstrate any human caused climate trend, let alone a dangerous one. Yet the expenditure will pale into insignificance compared with the squandering of money that is going to accompany the i...   Click here for more...

All one can learn about the history of life
‘…All one can learn about the history of life is learned from systematics, from groupings one finds in nature. The rest of it is story-telling of one sort or another. We have access to the tips of a tree; the tree itself is theory and people who pretend to know about the tree and to describe what went on with it, how the branches came off and the twigs came off are, I think, telling stories.’ Dr Colin Patterson (Senior Paleontologist, British Museum of Natural History, London) in an intervie...   Click here for more...

All paleontologists know
‘All paleontologists know that the fossil record contains precious little in the way of intermediate forms; transitions between major groups are characteristically abrupt.’ Stephen Jay Gould (Professor of Geology and Paleontology, Harvard University), ‘The return of hopeful monsters’. Natural History, vol. 86, June-July 1977, p.24. ...   Click here for more...

All the above methods for dating
‘All the above methods for dating the age of the earth, its various strata, and its fossils are questionable, because the rates are likely to have fluctuated widely over earth history…It is obvious that radiometric techniques may not be the absolute dating methods that they are claimed to be. Age estimates on a given geological stratum by different radiometric methods are often quite different (sometimes by hundreds of millions of years). There is no absolutely reliable long-term radiological ...   Click here for more...

Amid the bewildering array of early
‘Amid the bewildering array of early fossil hominoids, is there one whose morphology marks it as man’s hominid ancestor? If the factor of genetic variability is taken into account, the answer appears to be no.’ Robert Eckhardt, Scientific American, vol. 226 (1), 1972, p.94. ...   Click here for more...

As a generative principle

BBC BACKS DOWN ON “STUPID” COMMENT

BBC BACKS DOWN ON “STUPID” COMMENT, as reported by BBC News and The Telegraph 31 July 2012. In an interview with Richard Dawkins in September 2011 prominent BBC interviewer Jeremy Paxman referred to belief in creation as “religious hogwash” and those who believe it as “stupid people”. Following a complaint, the BBC Trust has acknowledged that Paxman’s comments, “were offensive to some of the audience and that there was no clear editorial purpose for their use in the context of this New...   Click here for more...

BIBLE LITERALISM CALLED 'PAGAN SUPERSTITION'

BIBLE LITERALISM CALLED 'PAGAN SUPERSTITION' as Vatican astronomer denounces 6-day creationism, reports WorldNetDaily.com May 6, 2006. Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno says believing God created the universe in six days is a form of "pagan superstition". Consolmagno described creationism as a "kind of paganism" because it is similar to the idea of "nature gods" who pagans believed to be responsible for natural events. Consolmagno stated that the Christian God is a supernatural god. In the...   Click here for more...

BIBLE SOCIETY DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMMES, CANON DR ANN HOLT
BIBLE SOCIETY DIRECTOR of Programmes, Canon Dr Ann Holt, defends Darwin, on Prayer for the Day, BBC Radio 4, 27th May 2009. She said:
“It may surprise you to know that Charles Darwin had little interest in religious controversy, preferring instead to adopt a quiet and respectful attitude to people with whom he disagreed. Some of those on both sides of the faith and science debate could do with learning from the attitude of the man in whose name they sometimes quarrel. Polarisation outside ...   Click here for more...

Biologists are simply na?ve
‘Biologists are simply na?ve when they talk about experiments designed to test the theory of evolution. It is not testable. They may happen to stumble across facts which would seem to conflict with its predictions. These facts will invariably be ignored and their discoverers will undoubtedly be deprived of continuing research grants.’ 1980 Assembly Week address: Professor Whitten, Professor of Genetics, University of Melbourne. ...   Click here for more...

But how good is the geological record?
‘But how good is the geological record? I have already mentioned that the ordinary viewpoint of evolution held by most paleontologists favours gradual incremental change. The fossil record, they say, is too incomplete to take seriously. And, they say, you cannot prove a gap. But of course you can prove a gap, especially if clines occurred. If there is a break in the record it must be possible to detect the break. The main point about breaks is that, if they were really random, as proposed ...   Click here for more...

But let us have no illusions
‘But let us have no illusions – our research would still leave us quite unable to grasp the extreme complexity of the simplest of organisms.’ Ilya Prigogine (Professor and Director of the Physics Department, Universite Libre de Bruxelles), ‘Can thermodynamics explain biological order? ‘Impact of Science on Society, vol. 23 (3), p.178 (1973). ...   Click here for more...

CARBON TRADING ACCORDING TO LONG TERM AUSSIE GEOLOGIST
CARBON TRADING ACCORDING TO LONG TERM AUSSIE GEOLOGIST: In an article entitled “The Evidence Against Human Causation in Global Warming,” p5, geologist Chris Towsey, MSc(Syd) BSc (Hons) Dip Ed FAusIMM states: "Carbon trading does not reduce carbon emissions - it simply allows emitters a financial penalty to continue operations unchanged. This penalty will be passed on to consumers." From website of geologist Chris Towsey, MSc(Syd) BSc (Hons) Dip Ed FAusIMM. A PDF copy of this article is availab...   Click here for more...

CHARLES DARWIN
CHARLES DARWIN said, “I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.” From p87 Autobiography of Charles Darwin, 1809-1882: with original omissions restored New York, W.W. Norton,1969. Nora Barlow ed.
