We are counting down our top ten stories of 2019. If you haven’t done so yet, please take a moment now to contribute to our work in bringing you news and analysis about evolution, intelligent design, and more every day of the year. There is no other voice, no other source of information, like ours. Thank you for your friendship and your support!The following article was originally published here on November 3, 2019.Author’s note: With great regret, we recognize the passing of Phillip Johnson, a key guiding spirit of the intelligent design movement. He died peacefully overnight this weekend, at age 79, at his home in Berkeley, California. I am publishing below an essay by Casey Luskin, written in 2011 for the website Darwin on Trial, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of Johnson’s crucial book of the same name. He held the title of Program Advisor for Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture.A special regret for me is that I never had the opportunity to meet Johnson, or Phil as he was called by those who knew him. But we in the community that seeks to advance the theory of intelligent design live in his presence every day. And we will continue to do so even following his death. It is that way with great men and great women: they launch a movement, or “light a match,” an image cited below, and stamp their vision and personality permanently on events, institutions, and persons that follow.With his vision, Johnson changed the terms of the debate about origins, with brilliance and gusto. In doing so, he changed many lives, of scientists and others, across the globe. But he did it in the spirit of a gentleman: as John Mark Reynolds has written, he “suffered fools gladly.” Now there is a model to follow! He was very humble, as the greatest men often are, and refused credit for striking the match that became the fire that is currently at work consuming a desiccated theory left over from 19th century materialism. After all, Johnson wrote, “the logs had been piled high, and the tinder gathered. Darwinian naturalists had accumulated a large stock of public discontent.” True, but nevertheless it was Johnson’s first book that set the fire, and not someone else’s. That, with his subsequent contributions and leadership, much of it behind the scenes, makes him the “Godfather of Intelligent Design.”We will have much more to say about Phil’s legacy and his personality in days and weeks to come. For now, the following comments can’t be much improved upon:The Significance of Phillip JohnsonPhillip Johnson, law professor emeritus of UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law, is widely recognized as the godfather of the contemporary intelligent design (ID) movement. As the author of several books and numerous articles explaining scientific, legal, and cultural dimension of the debate over ID and Darwinism, Johnson was one of the most prolific authors in the formative years of the movement. It was Johnson’s 1991 book Darwin on Trial that first convinced many thinkers that neo-Darwinian evolution was buttressed more by a philosophy of naturalism than by the scientific evidence. Johnson’s influential writing became the magnet of scholars from a variety of fields — biology, chemistry, physics, philosophy, theology, and law — to forge the intelligent design movement. The stories of many of these scientists and scholars are told in the volume Darwin’s Nemesis (InterVarsity Press, 2006). But Johnson too recounted — with humble surprise — the impact of his work in the 2008 volume Intelligent Design 101:Fifteen years ago I published a book that I thought might add a few ounces of balance to the debate over Darwin’s theory of evolution. The main thrust of that book, Darwin on Trial, was that evolution is propped up more by naturalistic philosophy than by the scientific evidence. Much to my pleasant surprise, this book turned out to be the match that lit the tinder beneath a stockpile of dry logs. This is not to my credit; the logs had been piled high, and the tinder gathered. Darwinian naturalists had accumulated a large stock of public discontent. [p. 23]The Right QuestionsPart of Johnson’s vision as a legal scholar has been knowing how to ask the right questions. The 1980s was an era of controversy for Biblical creationists. While young earth creationists and old earth creationists squabbled about whether Noah rode a dinosaur, or a camel onto the Ark, elite materialists were happy to take over the culture.With the mind of a law professor, Johnson was a master at spotting issues. And the key issue he saw in the origins debate was not the age of the earth or the differing interpretations of Genesis by Christians. It was a more fundamental question of interest to theists and non-theists alike: Is life the result of blind, undirected natural causes, or is it the result of purposeful design? By focusing on this question, Johnson transformed the entire origins debate. Johnson continues:Darwin on Trial became a uniting force around which many like-minded individuals — scholars of many stripes, churchgoers, students, and even open-minded agnostics who dared extend their skepticism to Darwin — could rally. For many, that rallying cry ultimately became “Intelligent Design!”It has been often said that all truth passes through three stages. First it is ignored. Then it is violently opposed. Finally, it is accepted as being self-evident. This seems to be the arc that intelligent design is traversing. Objective Education, Not CensorshipMany were content to ignore Johnson’s ideas until they actually started to impact public education. In 1999, members of the Kansas State Board of Education voted to soften the dogmatism that had dominated evolution-instruction. Yet Johnson was critical of the 1999 Kansas decision because it removed some aspects of macroevolution from the curriculum. Johnson has always been a proponent of objective education — not censorship. He argued in The Wedge of Truth that students should learn both the evidence for and against Darwinian evolution: What educators in Kansas and elsewhere should be doing is to ‘teach the controversy.’ Of course students should learn the orthodox Darwinian theory and the evidence that supports it, but they should also learn why so many are skeptical, and they should hear the skeptical arguments in their strongest form rather than in a caricature intended to make them look as silly as possible. In 2001, the Ohio State Board followed Johnson’s approach and required students to critically analyze the evidence for and against Darwinian evolution. Objective evolution education had won.It was around this time that Darwin-lobbyists realized that they better stop ignoring Johnson, and start telling the world that unless students are prevented from questioning Darwinism, the sky will fall.What You Saw, What You GotID critics quickly learned that the most effective way to target ID was not to address its arguments, but to make accusations of secret, sinister motives among proponents. One imagines the godfather Phillip Johnson in a smoky dark room handing “wedge documents” to his eager followers, charging them to go forth and baptize converts to intelligent design. On the contrary, with Phillip Johnson, what you see is what you get. As John Mark Reynolds explains in Darwin’s Nemesis:Phillip Johnson is one of those rare individuals who is always the same person. He asks the same hard questions in Sunday School as he does in the Berkeley classroom. He has a unified personality. I have seen him in hundreds of different situations, and there is no split in his soul. [p. 27]While Johnson wouldn’t flatter himself with such praise, he too observes that he has never hidden anything. “I always find these conspiracy theories amusing because our strategy has been transparent from the beginning,” writes Johnson. “After all, I titled my fifth book The Wedge of Truth: Splitting the Foundations of Naturalism.”What is more striking is Johnson’s gentlemanly responses to critics. “He is not a hater, not even of his enemies,” writes John Mark Reynolds. “This is why so many who disagree with him can still respect him…He suffers fools gladly.” (Darwin’s Nemesis, pp. 26-27)Ironically, intemperate efforts to attack Johnson often ended up drawing people to him, creating a growing network of scientists and other scholars interested in intelligent design. Biochemist Michael Behe explains how a biased critique of Darwin on Trial in the journal Science led Behe to join the ID movement:The news item made me so mad that I wrote a letter to the editor of Science, which they published … I wrote that this Johnson fellow appears from his book to be a rather intelligent layman, and that scientists would do much better to address the substance of his arguments than to rely on ad hominem attacks. About a week later I received a letter with a return address of Boalt Hall. … I was now in the loop—I was within the circle of Phil Johnson’s acquaintances and useful contacts. [Darwin’s Nemesis, pp. 44-45]Behe’s story is not unusual for members of the ID movement. Attracted by his intellect, character, and boldness, a new generation of scientists and scholars became connected to each other through Johnson.The GodfatherSome critics would like to call Johnson the father of ID. In fact, they sometimes claim that Johnson, a non-scientist, invented the term “intelligent design” as a scheme to get around a 1987 Supreme Court ruling that declared creationism unconstitutional. Aside from the fact that this story isn’t true, it’s also grossly anachronistic. ID thinking and arguments date back to the ancient Greeks, and even in its modern form, the term “intelligent design” was used long before Johnson got involved with the issue, and before any court contemplated creationism. In this sense, Johnson is not, and cannot be the “father” of intelligent design. But the Godfather? Most definitely.Photo credit: Lit match (top), by Yaoqi LAI via Unsplash; Phillip E. Johnson (below), by Greg Schneider.last_img read more

  • News Scan for Mar 02, 2017

    first_imgUS study shows Zika-type birth defects rise 20-foldThe incidence type of birth defects seen with congenital Zika infections in the United States rose 20 times higher than it was before the virus started circulating in the Americas region, researchers reported today in the latest issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).In their attempt to better define the baseline for Zika-related birth defects, the team based its findings on birth defect surveillance data for 2013 in Massachusetts and North Carolina and for 2013-14 in Atlanta, before Zika started triggering outbreaks in the Americas. They focused on the birth defects that have been linked to Zika virus by using a case definition that was developed for Zika in 2016, meaning they were looking for brain abnormalities and microcephaly, neural tube defects, eye abnormalities, and other central nervous system problems. Then they compared the findings with data from the US Zika Pregnancy Registry from Jan 15, 2016, to Sep 22, 2016.The proportion of birth defects that researchers saw in the pregnancy registry was 58.8 per 1,000 live births, about 20 times higher than the 2.86 per 1,000 prevalence seen in the three birth-defect surveillance systems in the pre-Zika years.Researchers concluded that the higher proportion of birth defects seen in pregnancies in the US Zika registry supports the relationship between congenital Zika infection and the birth defects.Mar 2 MMWR report Saudi Arabia reports MERS in teen girlAfter several days’ trouble with its Web site, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) today posted a Feb 28 update that detailed a MERS-CoV case involving a teenager in Az Zulfi in the center of the country.The MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) patient, a 17-year-old Saudi girl, is listed in stable condition. Her source of infection is noted as “primary,” which means she likely did not contract the disease from another person. The MOH, though, lists no potential risk factors for exposure.Her infection brings Saudi Arabia’s total since the outbreak began in 2012 to 1,568 MERS cases, including 651 deaths. Twelve patients are still recovering from the disease.Feb 28 Saudi MOH update H5N8 strikes more birds in 3 European countriesThree European countries—Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Poland—reported more highly pathogenic H5N8 avian influenza outbreaks in wild birds and poultry, according to the latest reports to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).Belgium’s outbreak involves a mallard found dead on Feb 27 in Flemish Brabant province in the central part of the country, and Bosnia and Herzegovina’s detection involved two mute swans found dead on Feb 28 at a zoo in Sarajevo, the country’s capital.Elsewhere, Poland’s agriculture ministry reported an outbreak in backyard poultry, which began on Feb 22, killing 24 of 41 birds at a holding in Lubuskie province in the west.Mar 2 OIE report on H5N8 in Belgium Mar 2 OIE report on H5N8 in Bosnia and Herzegovina Mar 1 OIE report on H5N8 in Poland Study identifies risk factors for MRSA, VRE in NICU patientsSurgery and prolonged antimicrobial treatment can increase the risk of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) colonization in infants prior to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) discharge, according to a study yesterday in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society.For the study, New York researchers identified 1,320 infants younger than 7 days of age who had been hospitalized for more than 2 weeks at four children’s hospitals from 2009 to 2012 and had been swabbed for surveillance cultures for MRSA and VRE within 7 days of NICU discharge. Although it’s known that infants hospitalized in the NICU can be at risk of infection with one of these pathogens and can serve as a reservoir for them, MRSA and VRE colonization rates preceding NICU discharge have not been well studied.The results of the surveillance cultures showed that, among the 1,320 infants, 58 (4%) were colonized with MRSA and 17 (1%) were colonized with VRE within 7 days of NICU discharge. Final multivariable models revealed that surgical procedures were a statistically significant predictor of MRSA colonization (OR, 2.83, P = .01), while 10 days or more of treatment with oxacillin (OR, 23.40, P  < .01) or penicillin/ampicillin (OR, 6.26, P < .01) was a statistically significant predictor of VRE colonization.The authors conclude that while the study found only a small percent of infants harbor MRSA and VRE prior to NICU discharge, the findings "have potential implications for dissemination of these potential pathogens, particularly MRSA, into long-term care facilities, other hospital units, and the communities."Mar 1 J Pediatric Infect Dis study CDC investigating 4-state E coli outbreak from unknown sourceThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating a four-state outbreak of Escherichia coli infections that involves at least 10 people, Food Safety News reported yesterday.Officials are interviewing patients about possible foodborne sources, the story said. "This investigation is ongoing, and we will update the public when more information becomes available," a CDC spokeswoman said. "CDC and state and local public health partners are continuing laboratory surveillance through PulseNet to identify additional ill people and to interview those people about foods they ate before they got sick."The Food and Drug Administration is testing isolates to identify patterns.

  • Restaurant on Wheels Offers Affordable Prices

    first_imgMr. Benjamin Darpoh, 40, of 19th Street in Monrovia has found the most effective way to bring food to his customers.“Customers call me and I supply them with food at affordable prices,” Darpoh said in an interview yesterday. Supplying food to his customers is done from a mobile restaurant.Described as ‘mobile kitchen’ the vehicle is equipped with a deep freezer, a microwave oven, an electric cooker, a mini freezer and many gadgets that make his venture workable.Darpoh, a father of two young children, said he decided to venture into this business to offer cheap but quality food service to people that do not have the time to go for lunch. “Catering runs in my family and for me it is a hobby. I love cooking, right. I learned it from my mother (Madam McLeod Darpoh, former Commerce Minister). I turned what became my hobby into a money-making venture,” he said.Darpoh said he started the business with assistance from one of his cousins. “A lot of people are not involved into this particular business and my cousin embraced the idea and today I am finally doing it,” he said.He admitted the cost to the venture is high, “and since I began two and half months ago, the profit is trickling in and I know that with time things will become better.”On the challenges he faces as the owner of a restaurant on wheels, he said the prices are not stable because of the inability of the Liberian government to regulate commodity prices. However, he is not deterred and is moving ahead.Mr. Darpoh urged Liberians to visit him on Broad Street, opposite Rivoli Cinema to taste his cuisine that is taking the city by storm.Some of the foods he offers include hot dogs, chicken burger/Hamburger, chicken sandwich, French fries, fried chicken, fried rice and chicken and chicken pie.Many of his customers are students of the nearby BW Harris High School. Sales are higher in the evening hours, he said, and he has offers for group services.“I’m working on delivery services to my customers anywhere in the city using motorbikes,” Darpoh said.For now the long white bus depicting his wares, is seen near the Rivoli Cinema with chairs set out for customers to enjoy the meals that only Ben Darpoh and his team can offer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Manchester City 2-1 Napoli: Sterling and Jesus strikes maintain winning start

    first_img1 Early goals from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus saw Manchester City maintain their winning start in the Champions League with a 2-1 victory over Napoli.City struck twice in the opening 13 minutes at the Etihad Stadium to set themselves up for a result that lifted them six points clear of the Serie A leaders, and their supposed chief rivals, in Group F.Napoli hit back strongly with Dries Mertens having a penalty saved before Amadou Diawara did score from the spot, but City survived a nervy finish.Pep Guardiola’s men arguably should have put the game beyond reach in the opening half-hour, as Kevin De Bruyne also hit the bar and Jesus was denied a second on the line.talkSPORT PLAYER RATINGS: Man City stars – who was ace and who was average?Buoyed by their 7-2 thrashing of Stoke at the weekend, they were quickly into their stride.Their first goal came after Leroy Sane opened up the Napoli defence and Sterling turned in a low shot after Kyle Walker’s initial effort was blocked.De Bruyne continued his rich vein of form by creating the second just moments later, seizing on a loose ball and delivering a now typically perfect pass into the path of Jesus. The Brazilian made no mistake from close range.De Bruyne might have added to the score when he curled a powerful left-footed shot against the bar and Jesus’ effort was kept out by Kalidou Koulibaly.Guardiola had described Napoli as one of the three best footballing sides in Europe but it was not until the latter stages of the first half that they began to show why.City had goalkeeper Ederson to thank for preserving their lead. The Brazilian first did well under pressure from Jose Calleron to claim a dipping cross from Lorenzo Insigne.He then beat away Mertens’ spot-kick after Walker was adjudged to have felled Raul Albiol, and also dealt with a long-range shot from the Belgian.Mertens was frustrated again before the break as Nicolas Otamendi blocked another powerful effort.Considering their exhilarating start, City had gone off the boil as the half-time whistle was blown.De Bruyne tried to voice some grievance to the officials as he left the field and he reacted angrily as team-mates Fernandinho and David Silva pushed him away.Napoli continued to make their presence felt after the break. Jesus broke clear only to be halted by a fine tackle from Albiol.Marek Hamsik – one short of equalling Diego Maradona’s Napoli goalscoring record – was denied by a brilliant sliding block from John Stones after Fernandinho had lost possession.They were awarded a second penalty after 73 minutes when Fernandinho brought down Faouzi Ghoulam. Diawara grabbed the ball this time and placed a fine shot into the bottom corner.City went close again as Napoli goalkeeper Jose Reina saved a De Bruyne free-kick and a Sane shot, but the hosts were relieved to hear the final whistle.

  • Blendr Mashes People Like You Into One App

    first_imgGrindr, the popular gay hookup mobile app, has launched a new version of its location-based people-finding service. Called Blendr, the app is aimed at a general audience, but the core idea remains the same: help users find other users based on shared interests and physical proximity, as close as one block away.Unlike Sonar or Foursquare, where you have to go outside the app to Twitter to talk to people or leave time-delayed comments on check-ins, Blendr keeps your interaction with nearby people in the same app.Grindr became popular in gay circles because of the ease with which it allowed its users to find sexual partners. Not only did users have the ability to incrementally reveal information about themselves with strangers, there was an added level of privacy since the interaction occurred within a single app. Keeping that kind of experience within the same app is what Blendr is hoping to capitalize on. Apps that do not rely on pushing people out to third party apps to complete the communication and connection circuit is a move all location based services will have to make. Think of it as a brand experience, the kind of thing that nurtures consumers’ trust for a brand. The app is well designed, with a compelling UI. But it has bugs. Here’s what I found after trying it: you key in your interests, you browse for users by location, your favorites, those you’ve chatted with recently or those currently online – but the chat feature didn’t work. It kept saying I was offline. The whole thing failed, in that regard. It does have going for it a very deep set of subcategories to use to label your interests, but I was only able to choose seven for some reason.I’m more interesting than that.

  • Sabatini: ‘Risible Inter penalty’

    first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Bologna director Walter Sabatini accused Lautaro Martinez of diving to win the penalty for Inter’s 2-1 victory. “It was a risible decision.” The Rossoblu had taken the lead through Roberto Soriano’s deflected strike, but Romelu Lukaku equalised from close range and won it for Inter in stoppages from the spot. “Unfortunately, Bologna lost a game that we did not deserve to lose and we couldn’t lose,” Sabatini told Sky Sport Italia. “We were not given a free kick for a foul on Rodrigo Palacio right on the edge of the box. We’d have seen out the game from that. Moments later, Inter got their penalty, which was risible. You can’t give a penalty for that. “Lautaro Martinez is an excellent striker, but I see he is learning the old tricks of the trade already. He seeks the contact, Orsolini barely grazes him and he goes down. If we want to use non-technical language, it was divish.” It was pointed out to Sabatini that Palacio didn’t protest when he went down for that incident. “So we are to be punished for being polite and well-mannered? Palacio doesn’t go around making a big song and dance about things, but it’s an evident foul. “I saw a great game with two teams who played well. I appreciate Antonio Conte, but how can he delegitimise our goal by calling it an own goal? It was a small deflection, but a great move building up to the shot on target.” Former Roma and Inter director Sabatini, who has had serious health issues recently, finished with a joke. “It’s harder than ever to get over this match now that I have stopped smoking. I could’ve smoked three already.”last_img read more
