We certainly don’t want to give the impression to the public that intelligent design is what we do.
[In July, George Will, a columnist I enjoy and find insightful on so many topics, weighed in on ID — go here. I’ve been meaning to respond to his remarks on ID for some time now.]
Duane Smith is another blogger complaining about Kenneth Chang’s NYTimes piece on ID. According to Smith (go here), in admitting that ID raises questions of real scientific merit, Chang’s article redistributes the burden of proof when in fact “the burden of proof is on Intelligent Design creationism and not mainstream science.”
Why ‘Theology Is a Simple Muddle’ By Lee Harris Published 08/19/2005 As one of my colleagues put it: “Twenty thousand words! And so far as I can tell, he has never read *anything* by comtemporary design theorists. Yet he proposes a way to reconcile ID to Neo-Darwinism. Maybe he should find out what he’s trying […]
Evolutionists in a panic Aug 17, 2005 By R. Albert Mohler Jr. Baptist Press
In case you missed this when it came out: http://www.uncommondescent.com/documentation/Berlinski_Darwinian_Doubts.pdf.
If the pop-culture is starting to understand the gross inadequacies of Neo-Darwinism to explain the origins and the diversity of life in this universe, perhaps a paradigm shift is closer than we think.
Many Darwinists are now finding that it no longer suits them to be called “Darwinists.” But, as we all know, calling a tail a leg doesn’t change that fact that a dog still only has four legs. Likewise, backing away from standard terminology and assigning to themselves other labels doesn’t change the fact that most […]
The charge is often made that ID constitutes an argument from ignorance (a charge I’ve shown to be false here). But a case can be made that conventional evolutionary theory, insofar as it tries to explain macroevolutionary changes, itself constitutes an argument from ignorance. In Gary Jason’s book Critical Thinking (p. 133), he characterizes the […]
My alumni/ae magazine, The University of Chicago Magazine, has a brief piece on me in its June 2005 issue (p. 58). It’s always interesting to see how one is perceived:
Discovery Institute Files Public Records Request in OSU Evolution Academic Freedom Case SEATTLE Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Discovery Institute has filed a public records request with the Ohio State University (OSU) seeking all documents related to Darwinist attacks on OSU doctoral candidate Bryan Leonard. The request was submitted under the Ohio Public Records Act.
media coverage of intelligent design has mostly failed to present your case on scientific grounds
For more than three decades, molecular evolutionists have thought that no matter how many genetic mutations show up on a specific gene, whether or not those mutations become fixed in the species is determined primarily by natural selection. The new study shows that the speed at which these new mutations arrive also affects whether the […]
