Science and Origins Discussion Group
This is a science oriented meeting
held at the UNM Law School on a quarterly basis to
examine the scientific evidence of design in the
universe. Next meeting will be on January 28,
2014 in room 2401 of the UNM Law School, 7 - 9 pm.
Speaker will be Casey Luskin who is research
coordinator at the Discovery Institute and co-author
with Ann Gauger and Doug Axe of the book "Science
and Human Origins". Abstract of his talk
Science and Human Origins: What Does The Evidence
What does the fossil and genetic
evidence say regarding human origins? Hominin
fossils generally fall into one of two groups:
ape-like species and human-like species, with a
large, unbridged gap between them. Despite the hype
promoted by many evolutionary paleoanthropologists,
the fragmented hominin fossil record does not
document the evolution of humans from ape-like
precursors. Leading proponents of “theistic
evolution” like Francis Collins offer two primary
genetic arguments for human/ape common ancestry: “
junk” DNA and chromosomal fusion. The argument from
junk DNA fails because the trendline of research
suggests that most non-coding DNA has important
cellular functions and isn’t “junk.” This is true
for many types of “junk” DNA, including pseudogenes.
The argument from chromosomal fusion fails because
at most it indicates that humans experienced a
fusion event, but says nothing about whether our
lineage leads back to a common ancestor with apes.
Rather, humans and apes have significant genetic and
morphological differences which suggest that there
is insufficient time in the fossil record to evolve
their respective differences. Critical responses to
these arguments will also be discussed.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,..."

THOMAS JEFFERSON ON INTELLIGENT DESIGN
"I hold (without appeal to revelation) that when we take a view of the Universe, in its parts general or particular, it is impossible for the human mind not to perceive and feel a conviction of design, consummate skill, and indefinite power in every atom of its composition....So irresistible are these evidences of an intelligent and powerful Agent that, of the infinite numbers of men who have existed thro’ all the time, they have believed, in the proportion of a million at least to Unit, in the hypothesis of an eternal pre-existence of a creator, rather than in that of a self-existent Universe."

"When the people fear their government, there
