New podcast from the ID the Future podcast. (RSS feed)
Here are the objections he addressed:
- Just because something is unlikely doesn’t mean that it was designed because improbable things occur all the time.
- You can’t infer design if the object is sub-optimally designed, or exhibits evil
- But intelligent design is just re-packaged creationism
I worry about Dr. Dembski because he takes a lot of heat from these evolutionists, who are not fit to shine his shoes. But he sounds very happy and comfortable in this podcast, so I was very happy.
William Dembski’s new book
OK, everybody knows that I am an old-earth creationist and a strong supporter of intelligent design. Whenever some tries to tell me that the doctrine of the Fall explains all the evil in the world, I just roll my eyes and fold my arms. Because that’s just young-earth stuff, right? WRONG!
Check out the endorsements for Bill’s new book “The End of Christianity: Finding a Good God in an Evil World”. Bill accepts the standard dating, as do I, but he obviously does not accept evolution, and neither do I.
Well, I went straight to the endorsements. Everybody who is anybody is raving about this book, including some real heavy hitters like Don Page at the University of Alberta.
Here are a few of the endorsers:
- Frank Turek
- Hank Hanegraaff
- Douglas Groothuis
- Michael Licona
- Gary R. Habermas
- Peter S. Williams
- Chuck Colson
- Norman Geisler
- John A. Bloom
- Steve Fuller
- Henry F. Schaefer III
- Josh and Sean McDowell
- Stephen T. Davis
- Don Page
- J. P. Moreland
Ken Ham says that I am right about how to fix the church
Oh, I get a lot of flack from mean young-earth people who tell me that I am wrong to emphasize apologetics, and that I should really be focusing on praise songs and worship instead. (I am kidding!) But Ken Ham did some surveys of young people and he says that singing is dead last in the list of things that young people want in church. And he also says that apologetics is the answer for curing the the mass exodus of young people from the church.
The MP3 file is here. (35 minutes, 14 megs)
Listen to the last 10 minutes, especially.
Well, I agree with Ken Ham on that much, at least! Bet you’d never thought I would agree with him on anything!
(By the way, I know how kids think. I used to be a volunteer camp counselor, volunteer swimming instructor, volunteer athletic supervisor, volunteer apologetics instructor, paid math teacher, and paid math tutor)
