    Intelligent Design and the Restoration of Story

    Jonathan WittMarch 17, 2021 In a previous three-part article (here, here, and here), I explored how Darwinian materialism has degraded the arts — the narrative arts in particular. But there is hope. Modern science has uncovered breathtaking evidence of design in nature — in the exquisite nano-technology of even the tiniest single-celled organisms, in the delicate fine-tuning of the cosmos (without which organic life would be impossible), and at countless points in between. Celebrating this growing evidence of intelligent design (ID) can help rescue the arts from the nihilism and ugliness they have descended into in

    Ancient hominins used fire to make flint tools

    A new study of these tools using spectroscopy and bioinformatics suggests skilled control over heating flint to produce different forms. By ISRAEL21c Staff OCTOBER 6, 2020 Our ancestors used fire to develop sophisticated technologies for making tools, say researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. The researchers used cutting-edge technologies of their own to take a fresh look at some of the tens of thousands of stone tools previously found in Qesem Cave, excavated by Prof. Avi Gopher and colleagues in Tel Aviv University. These tools date from the Lower Paleolithic era, between
