The Adarwinist Reader
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (3)

While traversing through blogland I came across The Adarwinist Reader, a blog by an obviously intelligent fellow who unfortunately has decided to spend large amounts of energy refuting the fundamental underlying theory of the biological sciences.

Here's his opening entry:

Darwin disciple Richard Dawkins has observed that Darwin 'made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist'. I have started this web log because I want you to know also that it is possible to be an intellectually fulfilled 'adarwinist'; that is, a darwinian infidel or heathen - a non-believer in (or skeptic of) darwinism. This is not an easy road. Expressing even the slightest doubt can be dangerous. You will be branded 'anti-intellectual', 'anti-science', 'willfully ignorant', and strip-searched for your 'hidden agenda'. It will be implied that you must also believe the earth is flat and the moon is made of cheese. If you're up for that; if you can keep an open mind; if you can allow for the possibility that the major scientific paradign (I promise, I will not use the word 'paradign' again) of the present age is seriously flawed (it wouldn't be the first time), then this site is for you.

Well, the site isn't for me, other than that I may refer to it now and again as an example of misapplied thought.

For the record, no, I don't think you can be an "intellectually fulfilled adarwinist" (whatever that might mean).
