Evolutionists are just as fond of quote-mining as their ID counterparts. A quote of Paul Nelson’s has lately been making the rounds, appearing even in the New York Times. At a meeting of Biola University last year, Nelson remarked, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Easily the biggest challenge facing the ID community is to develop a full-fledged theory of biological Read More…

Four Opinions on the Hearing in the Sunday KC Star Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2005
An ABC producer confirmed with me yesterday afternoon that I’m supposed to appear on Nightline this Monday (5.9.05). Steve Meyer is scheduled to debate Ken Miller on CNBC Sunday (5.8.05).

the usual reaction from evolutionists, for whom justifying evolution means supplying enough words and irrelevant details to cover their ignorance
I have just made available on my designinference.com website the documents detailing the rise and fall Baylor’s now defunct Michael Polanyi Center (MPC). The MPC was the first ID think-tank connected to a major university and for about nine months was the focus of considerable media attention. The documents are of mixed quality, with a Read More…
Ordinarily, I confine my comments on this blog to topics related to ID and evolution. This post is somewhat peripheral, though not entirely since Baylor was the first major university to set up an ID research center/think-tank (the now defunct Michael Polanyi Center). Robert Sloan, the Baylor president at whose instance I was hired to Read More…
Why should evolution be the best justification for atheism?
If Bush gets one or two more Supreme Court Justices, we’ll have Intelligent Design in the classroom.
Jed Macosko and I for the last two years have been working on a Festschrift volume for Phillip Johnson (he is 65 this June). The volume, titled A Man for This Season, is now in production with InterVarsity and should be published early 2006. For the introductory material to this volume, including our preface and Read More…
