Headlines proclaimed a breakthrough in evolutionary evidence due to the discovery of Ardipithecus ramidus, a supposedly bipedal organism earlier than previously thought.  Another "missing link" along the evolutionary chain that explains how human beings came to walk upright.  The timeline of such announcements is becoming familiar.  Soon after the headline follows the detail that offsets the hype and indicates that the initial claims aren't as clear cut as offered.  That is the case with the introduction of Ardi.
If they haven't done so yet, I'm sure soon some Darwinists will be citing this freak of nature as evidence for evolution. A woman found a snake in her house - and it had one foot. Assuming this is not a hoax (which I think it likely is), there's no reason at all to take this as some kind of support for evolution.
Karen Armstrong and Richard Dawkins were invited by the Wall Street Journal to answer the question "Where does evolution leave God?"  Dawkins answers as we would expect.  Armstrong capitulates by placing religion in the category of myth - subjective meaning beyond reality and reason.  This is no favor to religion, and Christianity in particular because it surrenders unnecessarily to materialism.
A single molecule has been photographed for the first time.
Yesterday I posted an admission from Richard Dawkins that evolutionists have no idea how consciousness came about from purely materialistic sources and forces.  Here's another honest gem from Dawkins about origins.
Following up on my criticism earlier this week of Robert Wright's claim that evolutionary psychologists have explained non-material facts of the universe such as morality as material features of consciousness thanks to the "creative power of natural selection," I quote atheist and Darwinist defender Richard Dawkins' own assessment of materialism's explanatory success to account for consciousness (and anything else consciousness is said to explain in turn):
Here's some news:The first artificial life form is likely to be a simple man-made bacterium that proves that the technology can work.I have a couple of general thoughts about how to think about this story.
Robert Wright, author of The Evolution of God, offers a negotiated settlement between science and religion.  But it's no bargain for either side, especially religion.  Writing in the New York Times, Wright gets off to a bad start with this erroneous assessment of the two sides he's attempting to reconcile:

An op-ed in the Wall Street Journal prompts a few replies.  Lawrence Krauss, director of the Origins Initiative at Arizona State University, makes a few common mistakes in his title claim.
