One Year Anniversary of Confronting Darwin!

Well folks, it's already been a year. Confronting Darwin was officially started on February 11/12 of 2009, the "year of Darwin," and 49 posts later it's grown slow and steady since then. I realize that my posts have been few and far between - that's the nature of trying to author 3 blogs at once, and work a full-time job and lead a normal life. I do hope that you will continue to come back, or subscribe to my RSS feed to receive updates when I post.

Here are a few of the more significant posts I've put up this past year:

Mr. Darwin, about that book of yours...

The Creation Museum

Make sure you check out the headlines tomorrow. It's international "Darwin Day." You'll find statements like the following:
"Two centuries after Darwin's birth, the theory he labored over for a lifetime has never been stronger, more vibrant, nor more widely accepted."

"Religious freedom ends where professional obligations begin."

"...the timeless truths of the Bible and the discoveries of modern science may comfortably coexist. We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutiny and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests. To reject this truth or to treat it as "one theory among others" is to deliberately embrace scientific ignorance and transmit such ignorance to our children."

"It would ease Darwin's oft-troubled mind to know that his ideas have not only vaulted science into the Third Great Age of Discovery but helped draw religion out of its embattled us-versus-the-heathen past and to the dawn of a new age of tolerant universalism."
You and I both know that we engaged in battle. It is certainly one of THE MOST DEFINING battles of our time, and as the rest of the church begins to succomb to pressure and apologize let us rise, unapologetic and bold, to proclaim the truth!
