The Theory of Flawed Design is not a scientifically proven

Alternative to evolution. It is based on the everyday life

Experience that natural selection could not have produced

  • Poem: After

    by Eve Grubin

    August 6, 2014 | 12:59 pm

    After a loss you live

    with your gasp, your gaze,

    with your hungry mouth as you lift the fork.

    Something Sane. Open the door.

    A guest sits down at the kitchen table.

    Washing evening dishes:

    something simple, something sane.

    Water dreams over your wrist,

    your hand, a...

  • Wish you were here you are

    by Rachel Zucker

    July 30, 2014 | 12:51 pm

    time isn’t the same for everyone there is

    science behind this when you fly into space

    you’re not experiencing time at the same rate

    as someone tethered to Earth & someone

    moving quickly experiences time at a slower rate

    even on Earth so as I run through Central Park

    at...

  • “While God Weeps”

    By Rabbi Joshua Levine Grater

    July 30, 2014 | 11:47 am

    While God Weeps,

    The children of Abraham continue to slaughter one another,

    As it was before, so it is now, hatred and mistrust fogging our ability to see the humanity in one another.  Palestinians unable to see the humanity in Isaac, Israelis unable to see the humanity in...

  • Poem: Jewish Dream #18

    by M.E. Silverman

    July 23, 2014 | 3:23 pm

    The dream is not so simple — learn what is between

    your mouth & God’s ear, feel holy when the ark opens,

    know the history of suffering, when it will suffice,

    how to chant like the sea breaking against rocky shores,

    know all about absence, that a good dish is the experience

  • Though we hope for change

    by Lori Levy

    July 2, 2014 | 3:50 pm

    It’s the same song playing under the sun.
    Day after day, a triangle tings
    in the back of the band: barely there,
    but beautiful as chimes trembling in a breeze.
    We quiver, as when finger tips stroke our necks.
    The measures flow, pianissimo, lovely —
    until, in a shift of pace,...

  • The end of an era

    by Rick Lupert

    June 19, 2014 | 2:46 pm

    When I first came to Friday Night Live
    I didn’t know if I’d ever been in a Jewish room so big.

    It was like they took the entire outside, put up walls on the very edges,
    added comfortable seating and painted the sky to look like a ceiling.

    I remember the sign I saw before I...

  • Poem: This Passover

    by Esther Cohen

    April 9, 2014 | 1:32 pm

    This Passover maybe we can liberate ourselves
    from holding onto what happened
    We don’t have to subscribe
    To Be Here Now but we can try
    letting go of all that happened
    that gets in the way
    of how pink Egypt is how much
    we loved one another before
    life intervened. This...
