Is Earth merely an insignificant speck in a vast and meaningless universe? On the contrary. The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos Is Designed for Discovery shows that this cherished assumption of materialism is dead wrong. Earth is a lot more significant than virtually anyone has realized. Contrary to the scientific orthodoxy, it is not an average planet around an ordinary star in an unremarkable part of the Milky Way.

In this original book, Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards present a staggering array of evidence that exposes the hollowness of this modern dogma.

You will discover:

How Earth is precisely positioned in the Milky Way—not only for life, but also to allow us to find answers to the greatest mysteries of the universe

Striking ways in which water doesn’t behave like most other liquids—and how each of its quirks makes it perfectly fit for the existence of creatures like us

The harmony of Earth and the Moon: how they work together to sustain Earthly life as one intricate system—and how that system produces the best solar eclipses just where there are observers to see them

How Earth’s atmosphere helps protect us from harmful radiation, yet has a tiny window open to the radiation crucial for life and scientific knowledge

How Jupiter and Saturn protect Earth from cataclysmic destruction

Why the best scientific evidence refutes the misnamed Copernican Principle—the widely held idea that there is nothing special about Earth or its place in the universe

How the laws and constants that govern the universe must be narrowly fine-tuned for the existence of any complex life

Copernicus: how the popular idea of his achievement and its significance contains more ideologically skewed myth than historical fact

Why the sheer number and size of galaxies does not mean that Earth’s capacity to sustain life is just the result of blind chance

Gonzalez and Richards demonstrate that our planet is exquisitely fit not only to support life, but also gives us the best view of the universe, as if Earth—and the universe itself—were designed both for life and for scientific discovery. Readers are taken on a scientific odyssey from a history of tectonic plates, the wonders of water, and solar eclipses, to our location in the Milky Way, the laws that govern the universe, and the beginning of cosmic time.

The Privileged Planet’s astounding findings should lead any individual to reevaluate entrenched assumptions about the universe—and even to reconsider our very purpose on what so many have dismissed as nothing more than an accident of cosmic evolution.

Evolutionary Logic

Church of Darwin, Science, Uncategorized | Posted by Chris Parker

By William A. Dembski

“Since the neo-Darwinian synthesis of the 1930s, evolutionary biology has become a growth industry.

This growth has resulted in the demand for more flexible methods of establishing evolutionary biology’s grandiose claims than the laborious, difficult, pedantic, and “rigorous” methods favored throughout the rest of the sciences.

This demand has been met by what is now a well-developed branch of evolutionary biology known as evolutionary logic.

I can’t here develop the theory of evolutionary logic in detail, but I will introduce some necessary terminology.”

Handsome “Polydactyled” Young Man

Here at s8int.com, we’ve always been driven by an insatiable curiosity about the world and a belief that evidence could be found that supports the Biblical story and explanations for the world we see around us .

We don’t take evidence for polydactyl as evidence for “aliens” as some do, but simply as another small affirmation that the Bible is correct when it speaks of a genetic human strain which produces fully functional “extra” digits.

This is a nice looking, fully functional non-handicapped, handsome young man who is not a “freak” and who is probably going to be somewhat tall.

2 Samuel 21:20 (King James Version)

And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.
