"DARWIN VS. DESIGN: EVOLUTIONISTS' NEW BATTLE" --by James Glanz [Sun. April 8th,  2001; p.1]
--an excellent up to date article on the continuing hot debate!:
"This time, though, the evolutionists find themselves arrayed not against traditional creationism, with its roots in biblical literalism, but against a more sophisticated idea: the intelligent design theory.

Proponents of this theory, led by a group of academics and intellectuals and including some biblical creationists, accept that the earth is billions of years old, not the thousands of years suggested by a literal reading of the Bible.

But they dispute the idea that natural selection, the force Darwin suggested drove evolution,  is enough to explain the complexity of the earth's plants and animals. That complexity, they say, must be the work of an intelligent designer.

This designer may be much like the biblical God, proponents say, but they are open to other explanations, such as the proposition that life was seeded by a meteorite from elsewhere  in the cosmos, possibly involving extraterrestrial intelligence, or the new age philosophy that the universe is suffused with a mysterious but inanimate life force.

Leaders of the design movement look for flaws in evolutionist thinking and its presentation, and have scored heavily by publicizing embarrassing mistakes in prominent biology textbooks.

Evolutionary biologists maintain that the arguments of intelligent design do not survive scrutiny, but they concede that a specialist's knowledge of particular mathematical or biological disciplines is often needed to clinch the point."

"ON THE TRAIL OF A FEW MORE ANCESTORS" --by John Noble Wilford [Sun. April 8th,  2001; p. 8]

(Comments from IEC President: Previously for school board candidates in Kansas, only a few hundred dollars were raised in order to be voted onto the Board. But since the latest struggle over the war between the Evolutionists and Creationists, it seems that the bigger money is now trying to determine our VALUES!

Linda Holloway, a conservative head of the school board, has raised $90,000 while Sue Gamble, more evolutionary prone, has raised ONLY $36,000. So once again, does money talk, does money try to control values, does money lead to power? And who, pray-tell, is DONATING all this money? Will money determine what we teach in school? And does that mean that the Evolutionary Creationists now have to solicit money to be heard?

"THE BIBLE, AS HISTORY, FLUNKS NEW ARCHAEOLOGICAL TESTS: Hotly Debated Studies Cast Doubt on Many Familiar Stories" 
--by Gustav Niebuhr [Sat. July 29, 2000; p. B9]

--by George Johnson [Tues. June 20, 2000; p. F1]
(Comments from IEC President: As one reads this article one can't help but think of the correlation between superstring theory {the attempt to explain matter & energy in terms of tiny vibratory strings--tinier entities which are, theoretically, beneath the level of quarks & leptons} and the channeled information of Anna Hayes in her Voyager Series. As one particle physicist stated, "theorists should never assume that they have already thought of every possibility for how the world works.")

--by Nicholas Wade [Tues. June 13, 2000; p. F1]
(This article rethinks the universal ancestor: a new tree of life)

--by John Noble Wilford [Tues. May 23, 2000; p. F-7]
(Was it south-to-north transplantation of the celebrated city-state of southern Mesopotamia; or north-to-south, from Tell Hamoukar to the southern city-state? Or, simultaneous yet independent development?)

--by Nicholas Wade [Tues. May 2, 2000; p. F2]
(A real eye opener with a fantastic DNA migration map)

--by George Johnson [Tues. April 4, 2000; p. F1]
(Those of you interested in multi-dimensionality will relish 
the article & the illustration of Brane Theory)


Regarding the NY TIMES, it is surprising that their major journalists, like those mentioned above, and others, don't attempt a synthesis of all their articles concerning the origins of the Earth & Humans--with their own speculations/theories. If Zecharia Sitchin could do this (whether you agree or disagree) then why can't this team of critical thinkers do likewise. And, once again, why does The New York Times refuse to critically review Sitchin's work? Maybe all you Sitchin fans need to E-mail The New York Times Science Editor, requesting/demanding an in-depth review:
