CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: APRIL 27th, 2017
    –Quote Of The Month– 
“When it comes to the origin of life there are only two possibilities: creation or spontaneous generation. There is no third way. Spontaneous generation was disproved one hundred years ago, but that leads us to only one other conclusion, that of supernatural creation. We cannot accept that on philosophical grounds; therefore, we choose to believe the impossible: that life arose spontaneously by chance!” (Paraphrased. Context: goes on to explain how, under the right circumstances and time, spontaneous generation could have occurred)
George Wald (Harvard University biochemist and Nobel Laureate), “The Origin of Life,” Scientific American, May 1954

4. New Topic: If Evolution is true, does religion become completely useless, even detrimental, to society?    

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: MAY 18th, 2017

–Quote Of The Month– 
    “Christianity has fought, still fights, and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus’ earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin, and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of God...If Jesus was not the redeemer that died for our sins, and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing.”
G. Richard Bozarth, “The Meaning of Evolution,” American Atheist, Sept. 20, 1979, p. 30

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: JUNE 18th, 2017

     –Quote Of The Month– 

“A new scientific truth is usually not propagated in such a way that opponents become convinced and discard their previous views. No, the adversaries eventually die off, and the upcoming generation is familiarized anew with the truth.”

Max Planck; Vortrage und Erinnerungen, S. Hirzel-Verlag, Stuttgart, 1949 (translated from German)

3. New Topic: “ If Evolution is considered a religion, does Creationism become a more acceptable alternative to it?” 

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: JULY 8th, 2017
    –Quote Of The Month– 
    “Contrary to the popular notion that only Creationism relies on the supernatural, evolution must as well, since the probabilities of random formation of life are so tiny as to require a ‘miracle’ for spontaneous generation tantamount to a theological argument.”
Chandra Wickramasinghe (Professor of Applied Math & Astronomy, University College, Cardiff), cited in Norman L. Geisler, Creator in the Courtroom: Scopes II (Mieford, MI: Mott Media, 1982) P. 151

2. New Topic: “Should Theology have any place in the scientific world, and should our religious beliefs be allowed to affect the way we perform and teach science?”

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: AUGUST 29th, 2017
    –Quote Of The Month– 

    "From first to last it is a dish of rank materialism cleverly cooked up ... .

And why is this done? For no other reason, I am sure, except to make us independent of a 

Creator."

-Adam Sedgwick (1785- 1873), 

British geologist and Professor of Geology at Cambridge, England. 

This was written by Sedgwick after he had read Darwin's book On the Origin of Species.

1.  New Topic: "Can "God" be a scientifically legitimate answer to any scientific problem?"

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: OCTOBER 23, 2017    –Quote Of The Month– 
    “Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason- I do not accept  the authority of popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other- my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe.”

-Martin Luther
    –New Online– 
1.  New Topic: "Why is evolution considered so controversial?"

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: NOVEMBER 25, 2017    –Quote Of The Month– 
‘If all the animals and man had been evolved in this ascendant manner, then there had been no first parents, no Eden, and no Fall. And if there had been no fall, then the entire historical fabric of Christianity, the story of the first sin and the reason for an atonement, upon which the current teaching based Christian emotion and morality, collapsed like a house of cards.’

5. New Topic: “Do Scientific Facts Line Up With Creation, Or Evolution?"

CE-DEBATE NEWSLETTER: DECEMBER 20, 2017    –Quote Of The Month– 

"It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door."

Richard Lewontin, Billions and billions of demons (review of The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan, 1997), The New York Review, p. 31, 9 January 1997.

"For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly."

We have arrived at what looks to be a decisive argument. In a sentence: Functional coherence makes accidental invention fantastically improbable and therefore physically impossible. Invention can’t happen by accident.
