“Een recensie met een persoonlijk karakter”
In het onderstaande document wil ik ingaan op het boek “En de aarde bracht voort” van dr. G. van den Brink. Dit is meer dan een recensie; het is een reactie op het boek met een persoonlijk karakter. Dat past bij het boek, dat bij tijden niet alleen zakelijk maar ook persoonlijk getoonzet is. Ik... Read more »The post “Een recensie met een persoonlijk karakter” appeared first on Logos Instituut.

Een misleidend boek over christelijk geloof en evolutie (2)
Prof. dr. G. van den Brink wil in zijn boek niet de Schift en haar gezag als uitgangspunt nemen om de evolutietheorie te toetsen. Voor hem zijn het twee waarheden naast elkaar. Bovendien gaat hem niet om de toetsing maar om de aanvaarding. Hij wil daarvoor aantonen dat de evolutietheorie past bij het ‘orthodoxe’ geloof....

Een misleidend boek over christelijk geloof en evolutie (1)
De laatste jaren was er veel discussie over het thema geloof en evolutie. In 2015 werden vele christenen opgeschrikt door het bericht dat een evangelische hogeschool overstag is gegaan en voortaan ruimte biedt aan de evolutietheorie. Tegelijk kwam toen een boek uit van de wetenschapper prof. dr. C. Dekker, die de christelijke jeugd ermee vertrouwd...

A recent article in New Scientist illustrates how difficult it is to classify various forms of life, such as dinosaurs, into groups.1 The article, based on a cover story (and a follow-up story) in Nature, was titled “Dinosaur Divisions: Family tree gets Radically Redrawn.”2 The main problem with all classification systems is that they depend on the specific criteria used to group life into... More...

Pop Quiz: Who Said It?There are many fundamental problems with evolutionary theory. Origin of life studies have dramatically failed. Incredibly complex biological designs, both morphological and molecular, arose abruptly with far too little time to have evolved. The concept of punctuated equilibrium is descriptive, not explanatory. For example, the Cambrian Explosion is not explained by evolution and, in general, evolutionary mechanisms are inadequate to explain the emergence of new traits, body plans and new physiologies. Even a single gene is beyond the reach of evolutionary mechanisms. In fact, the complexity and sophistication of life cannot originate from non-biological matter under...

Numerous, Successive, Slight ModificationsProteins are a problem for theories of spontaneous origins for many reasons. They consist of dozens, or often hundreds, or even thousands of amino acids in a linear sequence, and while many different sequences will do the job, that number is tiny compared to the total number of sequences that are possible. It is a proverbial needle-in-the-haystack problem, far beyond the reach of blind searches. To make matters worse, many proteins are overlapping, with portions of their genes occupying the same region of DNA. The same set of mutations would have to result in not one, but...

Bacterial Resistance to AntibioticsRachel Gross’ recent article about evolutionist’s public outreach contains several misconceptions that are, unfortunately, all too common. Perhaps most obvious is the mythological Warfare Thesis that Gross and her evolutionary protagonists heavily rely on. Plumbing the depths of ignorance, Gross writes:Those who research the topic call this paradigm the “conflict mode” because it pits religion and science against each other, with little room for discussion. And researchers are starting to realize that it does little to illuminate the science of evolution for those who need it most.“Those who research the topic call this paradigm the ‘conflict mode’”?Huh?This...

There You Go AgainWhy are evolutionists always wrong? And why are they always so sure of themselves? With the inexorable march of science, the predictions of evolution, which evolutionists were certain of, just keep on turning out false. This week’s failure is the much celebrated notion that the eukaryote’s power plant—the mitochondria—shares a common ancestor with the alphaproteobacteria. A long time ago, as the story goes, that bacterial common ancestor merged with an early eukaryote cell. And these two entities, as luck would have it, just happened to need each other. Evolution had just happened to create that early bacterium,...
