Intelligence or Chance?


Did life arise by design or by accident? This debate has engaged scientists for years. One of the leaders of the Intelligent Design (ID) movement has written an engaging and challenging answer to the question. Stephen C.

Is Punctuated Equilibrium Legitimate Science?

Harvard’s Stephen Jay Gould posited that “a species does not arise gradually by the steady transformation of its ancestors; rather, it appears all at once and ‘fully formed.’ ” In other words, species remain relatively unchanged for long periods of time (equilibrium) followed by intervals of evolutionary change too rapid to be captured in the […]

Why Did the First Christians Survive Pagan Persecution?

He was a contemporary and employer of Seutonius, the author of The Lives of the Twelve Caesars, and also a friend […]

What Age Will We Be in Heaven?

Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.” […]
