An interview on Darwinism with Dr. Berlinski

Dear Lee,
I enjoyed looking at your blog and the materials you link. I ended up looking for more commentary from Mr. Berlinski on the subject of evolution, and wrote an entry of my own:
While I don't expect our views on the subject to agree, I hope the idea the ideas should be debated with sound reasoning and without resort to known fallacies would be a win for the search for truth, wherever the search should lead us.
Best regards,

I do thank you for the quality of your response and the dignity with which you present it.

For a wide variety of reasons I don’t agree with you that macro evolution is the answer. I do believe that intelligence has played a significant role. I could write for some time, buy years of experience shows me that it seldom changes peoples mind on the topic. Should you be interested in knowing why I and many other have these views, you could read a number of books that provide some very interesting evidence. I would recommend:

“I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist”

“Evolution, a theory in crisis”

“Darwin’s black box”

“The case for a creator”

“the edge of evolution”

Or a number of other books by William Dembski, Phillip Johnson, or Stephen Meyer.

There are many books spelling out the logic problems of extrapolating from micro evolution to macro evolution.

I recognize that you will differ from me on this and many topics, but I do sincerely appreciate your response.

Besides the above, I will ask one question. If evolution is a scientific fact and responsible for life as we know it, without intelligence being involved, than what is the natural law that organized the first biological molecules to provide the massive amount of information needed to produce the first self replicating life?

Take care,

Lee Penick
