Dr. Ben Carson – Evolution is Satan’s work? Not so fast.

Why are there breeds and species on the Galapagos Islands that don’t exist anywhere else on earth? Don’t look for the answer, that’s the devil’s work. This would have been Republican presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson’s advice to Charles Darwin if he had lived 150 years ago. In 2011, Carson gave a speech about “Creationism... Read more »

Without Charles Darwin there’d still be Evolution

Darwinian evolution or Darwin’s theory of evolution is language often used by creationists. This is meant to try and undermine the science by implying it’s simply the opinion of one man. But it’s not the Darwin theory of evolution, it’s the scientific theory of evolution. And there’s no reason not to simply refer to it... Read more »

Creationist Mark Thompson responds to James Kirk Wall

On January 5th I released an article titled Bill Nye vs. creationist Ken Ham defending science from theology where I supported what was an upcoming debate at the time but also offered warning and advice on dealing with creationist dishonesty. A Biblical creationist by the name of Mark Thompson took issue with my piece and... Read more »

Ken Ham uses young earth arguments debunked over 20 years ago in Bill Nye debate

Typically young earth creationists don’t use previously debunked arguments. They’ll simply invent new ones and hope there’s some kind of shelf life before they too start to smell funny when unwrapped. The creationists who have at least a tiny bit of integrity will do this, Ken Ham apparently has none. In his debate with Bill... Read more »

Dear Glenn Beck, human rights have never come from god

Whenever you hear someone claim that rights come from god, that speaker is a person who (intentionally or unintentionally) wants to take your rights away. That is someone who wants a theocracy. It’s not about using god to claim that you have rights (even though that in itself is absolute nonsense), it’s about others claiming... Read more »

Blame Genesis, not Plato, for delays in evolutionary science

When fellow biologists read Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species in the 19th century, some outspokenly questioned why they didn’t think of it themselves. The evidence was all around them, especially in human guided breeding of animals such as pigeons and dogs. So why was something so obvious not discovered and well defined centuries if not...

James Kirk Wall responds to Intelligent Design and NDE argument for faith

First I would like to thank Rajiv Sobhee for his willingness to engage and publicize this discussion. Rajiv represents many people who believe in a greater intelligence but don’t subscribe to Christianity or any organized religion. In his essay Mr. Sobhee uses the classic complexity argument for design, has a brief blurb on quantum physics,... Read more »

Evolutionist James Kirk Wall responds to young earth creationist Randy Ruggles

First I would like to begin by thanking Randy for his formal response. Argumentation is a necessary process for finding truth. In the very serious business of deciding verdicts in our court system, we use both the Socratic Method and the scientific method. Although not a perfect process as dishonesty, incompetence or corruption can cause... Read more »

Creationists have taken issue with my article titled, “Evolution is a Religion! Proclaims Creationist Quacks.” Randy Ruggles has provided a formal response. I will be providing a reply to this on Monday 11/19. May the best argument win. “Evolution is NOT a Religion!” says THIS Creationist – A Response to James Kirk Wall – By... Read more »

Evolution is a religion! Proclaims creationist quacks

It isn’t Darwin’s legacy that promotes the idea of unguided natural process, it’s the evidence. Biblical creationists don’t have a prayer when it comes to any kind of honest argument with an evolutionist. They never did which is why biologists such as Thomas Huxley would crush theologians on a regular basis. Creationists rely on dishonesty... Read more »
