Christians Science Magazine
A couple of days ago I got a free copy of a new Dutch magazine. It's called weet or know in English. Of course it sounded interesting to me.
The first article I read was about DNA. First they explained how there were 64 possible combinations for DNA sequences (pretty easy stuff, obviously aimed at teens). Then all of a sudden it started saying things like this was proof for Intelligent Design and I was like wtf?
Turns out its a Christian magazine. On the intro page it starts with discrediting Relativity, Quantum Electro Dynamics and Feynman's particle model. Only to say that the same can be done for evolution. (of course, he doesn't say the theories just had to be adapted a little, in stead of saying that our world isn't made out of particles but out of the holy spirit or something...)
The argument goes like this: The way our DNA is transcribed/translated (with serine and argenine having 6 different combinations) is the way which prevents the most bad mutations (it says mutations, but what I think they meant is that the ones that mutate the most often, will change into a 'word' that codes for the same amino acid). And because this way is the best possible way, it must be designed.
Then there's an article about Josephus and some other historians talking about Jesus. Which were all refuted by a forum post I read an hour ago (A silence that screams by todangst).
But still. They're trying to push creationism in magazines in the Netherlands. Not very nice...
