The End of Evolutionary Theory is Nigh, because Dragons are Real...

A reflection on another creationist failure

Evolution can be refuted very easily by one observation: just find one fossil in the wrong place. The famous J.B.S. Haldane formulated it nicely as discovering "fossil rabbits in the Precambrium". And, guess what, this has never happened! All the fossils that have been found are at the right place, and in the right rocks. For example, nobody has ever found a human fossil next to a dinosaur fossil, because they lived millions of years apart.

But now, one creationist by the name of Darek Isaacs, has found the way to (as he puts it) "demolish the theory of evolution." In his book, Dragons or Dinosaurs he argues that there is evidence that humans and dinosaurs lived side by side. And this undoubtely confirms the truth of the Bible. Another victory for ignorance...

Here is the cover of the book and the abstract:

Dragon legends are found in nearly every culture around the globe. They have been thought to be myths. Yet, mysteriously, these dragons sound a lot like the other giant scaled reptiles, dinosaurs. Could they be one and the same? Surprisingly enough, the answer to this question is a powerful truth that confirms biblical authority and demolishes the theory of evolution. This book brings forth many new theories and evidence that are sure to fascinate the reader.

Science on Youtube!

A collection of great Youtube videos

As part of my PhD, I am also obliged to assist in certain courses. Today, one of those courses (Ecological Methods 2) ended with a day filled with student presentations. The students can choose between a classic powerpoint or a Youtube video to present their results. And the groups that choose the latter will be supervised by me or Fred de Boer (the course coordinator). And here are the results from last year and this year! Just click on the links and enjoy.
