EVOLUTION AND RELIGION
Anti-Evolution WWW Sites
More Tolerant Viewpoints
- The Institute for Creation Research (ICR).
- The talk.origins archive site has an extensive list of
creationist and anti-evolutionist WWW pages.
- The Creation Homepage
contains links links to creation webpages.
Science Home Page
- The Center for Scientific Creation has a very well
organized and attractive web site. (But it generates Java error messages with some browsers.)
- Welcome to the Biblical Creation Society (BCS). This is where you
will find the anti-Richard Dawkins essays in addition to the standard
misrepresentations of evolution. (The level
of scientific knowledge displayed on this site is an order of magnitude
greater than that seen at other anti-evolutionist
- If you're looking for an example of
hard core anti-evolutionism you can't do better than
Darwin was Wrong! Scientists Defend Creation - links to (mis)quotations
from prominent evolutionary biologists.
- The American Scientific
Affiliation is a group of Christian
men and women who are interested in investigating "any area relating
Christian faith and science". They appear to be
fundamentalists and are sympathetic to the Creationist position. See A Brief History of The Modern Creationist Movement by
Jerry Bergman for an excellent overview of
Other "Religious" Perspectives
- The Principia Cybernetica Project (PCP) has Webpages at the Free University
of Brussels, Brussels, Belgium. It is an attempt to develop a philosophy of
life based on the principles of cybernetics
Values by Shaun Johnston.
- The Evolutionary
Tales is a lengthy essay on evolution and creationism written by
Ronald L.Ecker in the style of The Cantebury Tales by Goeffrey
Chaucer. (Ecker has written a modern English translation
of Chaucer's major work.) The story concerns a trip to Dayton, Tenessee
(site of the Scopes trial in 1925) and features "The
Biochemist's Tale", "The Geologist's Tale", "The Paleontologist's Tale",
and many others. The quality of the science is generally
very high - this is an accurate description of evoluton and a convincing
refutation of most Creationist agruments. (As supplemental reading, I
recommend Stephen Jay Gould's essay "A Visit to
Dayton" in Hen's Teeth and Horse's Toes.)
- The National Center for Science Education (NCSE) is an American association
dedicated to defending the teaching of evolution against religious attack.
- The National Association of Biology Teachers (USA) have issued a
Statement on Teaching Evolution that clearly outlines their opposition to Creationism.
- The position of the Roman Catholic Church is described by George Sim Johnston in an article
that appeared originally in
- There have been many debates between Creationists and Evolutionary
Biologists. One of the most famous was held at
Auburn University (Auburn, Alabama USA) on May 10, 1988. It featured Ken
Saladin of Georgia College and Duane Gish
of The Institue for Creation Research The full text of the debate is
available at [Saladin-Gish Debate II]. This is
generally thought to be a solid win for the
evolutionist side but you should read it and decide for yourself.
