R. Wallace, who co-discovered the theory of evolution by natural selection only to adopt a proto-intelligent design view. Over this, he subsequently broke with Darwin. The book is edited by science historian Michael Flannery and it includes a rich selection of accompanying background material.

Darwin developed his theory of evolution not from painstaking field analysis by testing hypotheses against the evidence and following it dutifully wherever it led, as he and his supporters to this day so insistently claim; rather, he came to the field already armed and equipped with a materialistic worldview that served both as the lens through which he made his observations of the natural world and then as the framework into which he made them fit.2. Although Wallace always claimed to follow Darwin, in fact he increasingly distanced himself from the anti-teleology so prevalent in Darwin’s approach to evolution; in contrast, he developed a comprehensive teleological counter-theory to Darwinian natural selection that may appropriately be called intelligent evolution. 3. Recent studies have vindicated Wallace in three key areas: 1) his emphasis upon human exceptionalism, as witnessed in the remarkable property of language and speech eloquently presented by the superb literary stylist, Tom Wolfe; 2) his intelligent evolution, as confirmed in the research of physician/geneticist Michael Denton and biochemist Michael J. Behe; and 3) the counterfactual exercise — suggested by noted Darwin defender, historian Peter Bowler, no less! — of erasing Darwin from the scene and calculating the hypothetical results. In the first two cases, all evidence points to the enduring accuracy of Wallace’s prescient conclusions regarding the unique attributes of human beings and the necessity of an information-filled, Mind-like teleological biosphere. In the last, a world without Darwin would still have been far from perfect (many ills have nothing to do with him or his theory), but would we have had to suffer from the delusions of scientism, and worse, the horrific effects of its social applications? University of Pennsylvania historian of science and social anthropology, Henrika Kuklick, has stated unequivocally, “scholars have wasted their time trying to exonerate Darwin of responsibility for Social Darwinism, for he was a Social Darwinist.” “Three Powerful Claims” Congratulations to Science Magazine for an Honest Portrayal of Darwin’s Descent of Man William Dembski writes in his preface to Intelligent Evolution that “Flannery advances three powerful claims”: Origin of Life: Brian Miller Distills a Debate Between Dave Farina and James Tour Jane Goodall Meets the God Hypothesis Wallace’s Counter to Darwin Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share “A Summary of the Evidence for Intelligent Design”: The Study Guide To discover the metaphysic that preceded Darwin’s science, Wallace’s counter in a new guided and goal-oriented evolution, and the present-day science that confirms ideas about human exceptionalism, unblinded evolution, and the real consequences of a Darwin “deleted,” get your copy of Intelligent Evolution now.

Maryland Falls at Ohio State

first_imgMaryland lost at Ohio State tonight 91-69. The loss drops the Terps to 14-5 overall and 3-3 in the conference. The game followed a familiar formula for the depleted Terps, as they started strong, taking a 22-15 lead after 10 minutes. They then lost all composure on offense and all discipline on defense, allowing OSU to close the game on a 76-47 run from that point on.-OSU outshot UMD 56%-37% from the floor, including 58%-36% from 3.-Darryl Morsell Continued his poor performance in conference play, going 0-7 from the field while missing 4 of his 8 free throws.-On 3s from players other than Cowan and Huerter, the Terps shot 1-for-10.-Anthony Cowan had 12 points, which has become sub-par for him this year. He likely only had that many points because he shot the ball 13 times from the field, only making 3.-Kevin Huerter had the most productive night, shooting 40% and making 4 3-pointers for 12 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists.-Michael Cekovsky had the best night of his career, going 7-12 with 18 points and 5 rebounds.-The Terps were depleted in that Dion Wiley couldn’t go due to a concussion. he hopes to return for their next game.Maryland has a quirky schedule from here on out. They play 12 more games, and starting with their Monday tilt at Michigan, every matchup alternates between home and away.
