You know who Eric Hedin is. We’ve been writing a lot about him lately — most recently Exciting Information about Eric Hedin’s Book. Years ago he was at the center of a storm we called the Ball State Imbroglio, when it was revealed that he was introducing Oogity Boogity into his course on the “Boundaries of Science” at Ball State University, Now he’s found a haven at the Discovery Institute.
You’ll be thrilled to learn that the Discoveroids have a new post about him at their creationist blog. The thing is titled Physicist Eric Hedin: Cosmology Points to Cosmic Design. It was written by Jonathan Witt, described at the end as: “a senior fellow and senior project manager with Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture.”
You’re obviously in for a treat, so let’s get started. Here are some excerpts from the Discoveroids’ post, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
On a new ID the Future episode [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!], host Eric Anderson continues his conversation with physicist and Canceled Science author Eric Hedin. Download the podcast or listen to it here. [Link omitted!]
Here’s the Amazon link to Hedin’s book, Canceled Science. As we’ve previously informed you, it was published by the prestigious Discovery Institute Press. Okay, let’s move along. Jonathan Witt says:
Hedin argues that the dogmatic rule that natural science should only ever invoke natural causes has at its heart a logical problem.
Ooooooooooooh! Hedin’s right! Why shouldn’t science include supernatural causes? It’s dogmatic and illogical to do otherwise. After that stunning revelation, Jonathan Witt tells us:
He and Anderson also review some startling cases [Startling!] of fine-tuning for life and why a “theory of everything” would not solve the fine-tuning problem for atheists but merely move it back to the theory of everything itself.
We’re not quite sure what that’s all about, but if Hedin says it, you know it’s great creation science! The Discoveroid post continues:
Also in the conversation, a highly accessible survey of how scientists came to realize that the universe isn’t eternal but has a beginning.
Well, the expansion of the universe had a beginning. As for what was going on prior to that, maybe Hedin knows. Let’s read on:
Hedin also tackles a theological poser: If the universe was designed for life, why did the designer wait nine billion plus years to create the first life?
Good question. Hey, maybe the universe isn’t old after all! And now we come to the end:
It’s all material explored in Hedin’s new book, Canceled Science: What Some Atheists Don’t Want You to See, available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online booksellers.
Okay, dear reader, we know you’re intrigued, so go ahead and buy the book. It was published by the Discoveroids, so you can’t go wrong!
