I have been away from the Internet in the last few days, so am trying hard to catch up on the news that I have missed out. One very gloom piece of news stands out: apparently a beautifully printed Islam-based creationism book Atlas of Creation has been distributed into the hands of professors and various media organisations in the United States (for example, see here and here).

However, there is a little brighter bit of news which caught my attention. A small new website came to existence recently, and its name is Evolution Is Not Just a Theory: http://www.notjustatheory.com.

It is basically a website dedicated to explain what the word theory means, and why it should not be used as an argument against the theory of evolution. It is quite thin in content and the look-and-feel of it is kind of amateurish, so I didn’t know what to make of it initially. But now I think it is kind of cute – it is better than nothing after all, and hopefully it will evolve (sorry) into something bigger in the future.

Come on. In order to be able to deny evident fact of darwinism is dying, you are expecting help from wordplay. Don’t do that. this looks very miserable.
We are not dealing with speculative wordplays, we are dealing with facts and findings of modern science. and they all show that Darwinism is an assumption made a hundred and fifty years ago and now “a theory (just or not) in crisis”.

No, Darwinism isn’t dying. The real debate is on the role that natural selection plays and how much of a role it plays, and NOT on whether it plays a role at all.

No sciece department in any research oritented university in the world denies that Darwinism has a role in evolution.

Hi berke, as blueollie stated the real debate is on how important Darwinism (gradual change through natural selection) plays a role in evolution. As far as we are aware of, Darwinism is not dying – it is still the best (see http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/06/26/healthscience/26essay.php for a latest on this).

As for word play, unfortunately you will still hear “evolution is just a theory” and the junkyard-airplane arguments from the ignorant and misinformed, which is something we cannot just turn a blind-eye for…

The evolutionist claim a {theory} is now something different than what theory really means as i would use the word! Evolutionist do not just shape shift events to fit their perspective they also now shape shift meanings of words to fit their perspective of the lie called evolution!what idiots evolutionist are!
