If you could have been there when the big bang went bang 13.7 billion years ago, you would likely think that God (if God exists) was pulling your leg if She said to you, “From this explosion I’ll make a … Continue reading
At Evolution News and Views, IDer William Dembski reflects on the problem of explanatory continuity: Science is not merely about discovering continuities in nature that can be described by a seamless naturalistic story. Sure, areas of science are like that. … Continue reading
Physicists are excited. The Washington Post this week has a very brief article, absent details, suggesting that maybe the CERN Large Hadron Collider has started to pick the lock on the Big Bang and the so-called God Particle (the Higgs boson): … Continue reading
Intelligent Design v. The Multiverse Hypothesis: Astronomer John Gribbin Cleverly Splits the Difference Between Them
At the UK’s Telegraph, astronomer John Gribbin puts an intelligent design twist on the multiverse hypothesis: he writes that it’s possible—indeed, plausible—that “a very advanced civilisation”, knowing how to birth new universes via the creation of black holes, designed our universe with life-friendly … Continue reading
Atheist universes without end: Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow’s ironically titled new book, “The Grand Design”
In a recent Washington Post review of Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow’s new book, The Grand Design (Bantam 2010), physicist James Trefil summarizes how the authors answer this question: Where did our lawful universe come from?: Our current best description of the physics … Continue reading

Right-wing radio host and Evangelical, Hugh Hewitt, interviewed atheist Richard Dawkins on Tuesday. I thought this part of the exchange was telling: HH: I’m talking about the whole cosmos. Where did that come from, 13 billion years ago? RD: It … Continue reading
Akin to the cooling of boiling water over time, physicist Brian Cox says that we are the things that young and hot “hydrogen atoms do” after they’ve cooled and aged over 13.7 billion years. Isn’t that ridiculous? As hydrogen atoms … Continue reading
Mathematician David Berlinski (from his new book of collected essays, The Deniable Darwin, p. 422): At some time in the history of the universe, there were no human minds, and at some time later, there were. Within the blink of … Continue reading
The New Prometheuses? Are Physicists on the Verge of Stealing the Secrets of the “God Particle” (the Higgs Boson’s Mass) from Heaven?
Stealing fire from heaven. The most important physics experiment in the history of, well, all of history, is slated to take place over the late winter of 2009 and the first few months of 2010. This is when the CERN particle … Continue reading
Can An Atheist or Agnostic Support the Teaching of Some “Intelligent Design” Arguments in the Science Classroom?
