Even though they emphatically disagreed about design in nature. Michael Flannery tells the story.
Dembski might also be leaving Facebook for the same reason: Too much censorship and news management.
In reality, Cancel Culture, practised systematically, will tend to reward those with the fewest original ideas to offer and that should be reason enough to cancel it.

But a friend suggests that at roughly the 7-minute mark, the discussion turns to anti-Christian bias in Google search and recommends—whoops!— alternative services.
