Quote of the day (refresh browser to select another):

My reasons for seeing the universe as meaningful lie in what I perceive as its built-in necessities. Monod stressed the improbability of life and mind and the preponderant role of chance in their emergence, hence the lack of design in the universe, hence its absurdity and pointlessness. My reading of the same facts is different. It gives chance the same role, but acting within such a stringent set of constraints as to produce life and mind obligatorily, not once but many times. To Monod's famous sentence "The universe was not pregnant with life, nor the bisosphere with man," I reply: "You are wrong. They were." -- Christian de Duve (Catholic biologist), Vital Dust: Life As A Cosmic Imperative, Basic Books, New York, 1995, pg. 300.

Approach

The objective of this website is to collect high-quality, authoritative information on topics in the arena of science and religion, and to present this information in a rigorous, intellectually honest, well-documented and non-partisan manner. Topics include evolution, creationism, intelligent design, physics, cosmology, philosophy, theology, biblical scholarship and social issues, organized into more than 80 separate articles (not including an additional 100+ articles in the blog). These articles are updated periodically as new research results and scholarship become available. Detailed references are given in all cases, with web links where available, and all references are listed in an extensive bibliography.

The material on this site is targeted to a broad spectrum of scientific, religious and social movements. However, no advertisements or solicitations to support any organization (scientific, academic or religious) are allowed.
