Some thought-provoking observations on whale evolution by biochemist Jonathan Wells (a Berkeley graduate and vocal skeptic of strict philosophical naturalism): In the case of the Durrett and Schmidt (2008) paper, evolutionary biologist Richard von Sternberg has applied the equations employed in that … Continue reading
Just as Unitarianism is the featherbed for catching the falling Christian (Erasmus Darwin), humanism is the featherbed for catching the falling atheist. What humanism functions to conceal for the squeamish atheist and agnostic (and I am one of those squeamish agnostics) is … Continue reading
What Jerry Fodor and Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini Got Wrong: Boston Review is Tough on Fodor and Piatelli-Palmarini’s New Book
Fodor and Piatelli-Palmarini’s new book, What Darwin Got Wrong, gets a scathing thumbs down from two philosophers: Fodor and Piattelli-Palmarini are not biologists. Fodor is a leading philosopher of mind and cognitive scientist, best known for his ideas about the … Continue reading

Evolution v. Creation: Asa Gray, in the “Atlantic Monthly” for June, 1860, Reviewed Darwin’s “Origin of Species” and Clearly Explained Why Science Can Never Be Satisfied with a Supernatural Explanation of Origins
Below is one of the clearest “apologies” for the separation of science from the supernatural that I have ever encountered—and it was written a hundred and fifty years ago. In June of 1860, Asa Gray, in The Atlantic, reviewed favorably … Continue reading
Apparently some graduate students, with a bit of time on their hands, made an appreciative song for their favorite transitional fossil:
Evolution v. Creation Metaphor Watch: Is Darwin’s “Struggle for Existence” Economic Malthusianism Writ Large?
