A question that has been bounced around in creationist circles for a number of years now relates to natural selection. The question is simple and is in fact, the title of this study: is natural selection enough? This question is incredibly important to determine the origin of variation within the created kinds.  However, the question … Continue reading Preview: Upcoming Research Project

The Resurrecting Species

The Resurrecting Species

Scientists talk a lot about the origin of new species. It's been referred to as being "nearly synonymous with evolution" and regularly features in biology textbooks as one of if not the primary evidence for evolution. Yet, as I've previously written on the pages of this blog, speciation provides no evidence for evolution. Yet researchers … Continue reading The Resurrecting Species

Is Natural Selection Enough?

Is Natural Selection Enough?

There is no dispute, it happens.  However, what I'm considering is whether natural selection is a strong enough force to create the massive amount of variation we observe in … Continue reading Is Natural Selection Enough?

Words are being thrown around which are being used to mean multiple things without a clear change in meaning.  … Continue reading Conflating Natural Selection with Evolution
