Unlocking the Mystery of Life
the Flagellum (bacterial motor) video
Often called the most researched and documented case for Intelligent Design,
"Unlocking the Mystery of Life" features state-of-the-art computer animation to
explain the origins of life via Intelligent Design. It challenges Darwinian
evolution with Irreducible Complexity. The speakers are a who's who in the Intelligent Design
movement, including Michael Behe. You might be surprised
at the conclusions.

|How Old is the Earth?
Is the Earth billions of years old or only a few thousand years old? This
is at the core of many evolution vs. creation debates. Both camps claim
the evidence supports their side. What evidence do they have and what does
it actually say?

Age of the Earth?
Are these methods reliable?

Can the missing link be constructed from a funny bone?
Radiometric Dating (How old is that rock?)
How are rocks dated? What about claims their methods aren't reliable? How come
rocks from recent lava flows date to millions of years old?

List of creationists claims and evolutionists responses
- The belief that living things evolved across long expanses of time.
Evolution Theory - The explanation for how
evolution could have occurred. Most
biologists believe evolution to be a fact, however, there are different ideas
about the details of how it occurred.

Fine-Tuned Universe - The idea that because
life and features of the Earth and Universe are so perfectly fitted together,
they must have been intelligently created.

Irreducible Complexity - A
concept introduced by Michael Behe to show that certain biological systems could
not evolve, and therefore needed an intelligent designer. Behe defines it
- By irreducibly complex I mean a
single system composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that
contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the
parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning. (Darwin's Black Box: The Biochemical Challenge to Evolution p. 39)
God of the Gaps - The use of supernatural intervention to explain what
is not understood. Example: Before seizures were understood, people
believed they were caused by demonic possession.
Magical Invisible Blue Elephant (MIBE)- A
highly improbable, but non-falsifiable, explanation for an event. "I
can't find my wallet. A MIBE must have taken it."
- A method of determining the age of an object based on the decay of radioactive
elements. This is accepted as reasonably accurate by most geologists,
believe that it is not reliable.

Earth Creationism/Young Earth Creationist (YEC) - The belief that the Earth
was created about 6,000 years ago in a span of six days as described in
Genesis. Some YECs believe that the Bible says the Universe was also
created during this time, others believe the Bible says the Universe was created
at an earlier date and that Genesis actually describes the re-creation of Earth.

What is the purpose of this site?
- To present as many
views and their corresponding opposing views as possible.

- To educate the
reader so that they can cut through the large amounts of misinformation
presented by both sides.
- To enable
the reader to draw their own conclusions based on actual facts and data.
Will this site convince you one way or the other? It's doubtful. Some of the world's greatest minds have studied evolution and
have come to believe that evolution is utter nonsense and others see it as solid
and as well-proven as a theory can get. Clearly the answer is not black
and white. While there is plenty of evidence both for and against
evolution, I have yet to find the smoking gun that either proves or disproves it
beyond all doubt. The best you can hope is to learn and understand the
facts, cut through the lies and nonsense, and form and educated opinion.
It is not the goal of this site to lead you to a particular destination, but
assist you in your journey.
Do I Agree With Everything on this Site?
In my effort to include all points of view, this site includes points of view
that I don't agree with. It also includes many links to opinions that I don't agree
with. If someone has an intelligent, fact-based point of view, I'll try to
include it, regardless of whether I agree with it or not. I include
these links to provide all sides of the issue. Some of these links contain misleading
information. My goal is to inform the reader so that they can spot the
misinformation for themselves. But in the end, you have to investigate
and evaluate the
yourself. If you
know of good rebuttals to information on this site, or sites it links to, please send them to
And while on the subject, I do not necessarily endorse the various advertised
links and products. Some of these ads are selected by other agencies and
can change each time a page is loaded. I neither have control over which
ads are selected, nor even know what will come up. If you see one that
looks interesting, check it out and tell me
what you think. If you want to know my opinion on a product or link,
what I write about it, or send an e-mail
asking about it. I also list books that I think would be of interest to
the reader, even if I don't agree with the author. Some of my favorite
books are ones that I don't agree with - but they make interesting reading.
What do I think
about Evolution vs. Creation?
Why do you care what I
believe? What does it matter? It makes no difference to me
if you believe in evolution, creation, old Earth, or Young Earth. My goal is
just to present a
balanced view of these issues, so that you can base your belief on the
facts. What conclusions you draw from those facts is solely up to
you.. I'll try to include all sides of the debate
and give each a fair shake. If I know of a reasonable rebuttal to information presented,
it will be included so that the reader can draw their own conclusions.
I find it frustrating to read information that is misleading, taken out of
context, or simply false. Even if the author doesn't agree with
the other point of view, if it's reasonable, they should include it and explain why they
think it is wrong. That's my goal here. But I'm not perfect. I
will make mistakes, be misguided, and occasionally show my
ignorance. So, if you find information on
this website that you think is wrong, out of context, misleading, or has a
reasonable rebuttal that's not included, then please e-mail
me about it. But don't just tell me I'm a misguided idiot, explain why I'm
a misguided idiot and don't forget to include references to any information cited. The better
the explanation, the more likely that your ideas will be included. Also,
send suggested links.

Why am I doing
After I got
involved in the Evolution/Creation/Intelligent Design debate, the first thing I
noticed was how much misleading, out of context, and downright false information
was out there. Much of it by people who should know better. I'm going to
try to cut through the nonsense, show which information is false, which is
just speculation, and which is actual factual data. Much of the
information on these topics is at best speculation based on the evidence.
There are some concrete facts, such as fossils (We know we have fossils), but
what they tell us is hotly debated. We know that radioisotopes decay, but can
they be used for dating? These are the types of questions that I hope this
site will clarify. The article Lessons Learned When I
Attended a Series of Intelligent Design/Creation Videos is a good example of
why I started this site.
I know that this
page looks likes it's heavily weighted in favor of evolution, but I'm just
getting started. I plan to add much more creation, Intelligent Design, and anti-evolution
Right now I'm
primarily in the gathering together of other useful links phase.
I've written a couple of articles for topics that I was unable to find good
links to and plan to write more. I also plan to write a number of general
overviews of the various topics. These, hopefully, will be relatively
unbiased (yeah, I know that's not possible, but I can try) and brief discussions
of the major pro/anti views on various topics with
links to more detailed information.
