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

We can clearly see that there is no bi-univocal correspondence between linear signifying links archi-writing, depending on the author, and this multireferential, multidimensional machinic catalysis. The symmetry of scale, the transversality, the pathic non-discursive character of their expansion: all these dimensions re-move us from the logic of the excluded middle and reinforce us in our dismissal of the ontological binarism we criticised previously. A machinic assemblage, through its diverse components, extracts its consistency by crossing ontological thresholds, non-linear thresholds of irreversibility, ontological and phylogenetic thresholds, creative thresholds of heterogenesis and autopoiesis. The notion of scale needs to be expanded to consider fractal symmetries in ontological terms. -- This hopelessly confused but serious piece of postmodern science scholarship is from Felix Guattari (French postmodernist), "Chaosmosis: An Ethico-Aesthetic Paradigm," quoted in Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont, Fashionable Nonsense: Postmodern Intellectuals' Abuse of Science, Picador, New York, 1998, pg. 166.

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.
