Catching up with RNCSE
Selected content from volume 27, numbers 3-4, of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on NCSE's website, featuring Joe Felsenstein's "Has Natural Selection Been Refuted? The Arguments of William Dembski." Felsenstein concludes, "Dembski argues that there are theorems that prevent natural selection from explaining the adaptations that we see. His arguments do not work. There can be no theorem saying that adaptive information is conserved and cannot be increased by natural selection. ... When we see adaptation, we are not looking at positive evidence of billions and trillions of interventions by a designer." And there are reviews, too: Lauri Lebo (the author of The Devil in Dover reviews Matthew Chapman's Forty Days and Forty Nights, Tim Berra reviews Stanley A. Rice's Encyclopedia of Evolution, and Gary Hurd reviews Fazale Rana and Hugh Ross's Origins of Life.
