the pattern set by the Scopes Trial, which has been repeated many times since, namely, evolutionists escaped critical scrutiny by not having to undergo cross-examination
This book defiantly shows the extent to which science is beating down religion and how this systematic tyranny is unmistakably weakening culture and society.
Think of what happened in the 1960s — Berkeley’s radicals back then changed American education. It will be interesting to see what today’s Berkeley’s radicals will accomplish.
There’s an important new blog at which Mike Gene hangs out (www.telicthoughts.com) that anyone with an interest in ID needs to be aware of. Available at that site is a 25MByte video file giving my interactions with Ruse yesterday on ABC’s Nightline: go here.
I’m going to be on ABC Nightline tonight (Monday). The show has already been recorded. George Stephanopoulos is substituting for Ted Koppel and is interviewing me and Michael Ruse.

It’s always amazed me that people are so willing to abandon the hard work and intuition that leads to intelligence, upon which rests the entire edifice of science, and resort to little more than gambling in an attempt to create innovation. I have another word for it–laziness.
Mike Gene is the pseudonym of one of the most insightful individuals in the ID/evolution debate. He remains critical of various aspects of ID, but he is far more critical of conventional evolutionary theory. For his views, have a look at his website. To get a flavor of his thinking, here is a recent post Read More…
