Jonathan Sarfati has a piece at Answers in Genesis titled “ID theorist blunders on Bible: Reply to Dr William Dembski.” In it he remarks (quoting me): Misrepresenting the Church Fathers Dr William Dembski [WD]: “Let me concede that young earth creationism was largely the position of the church from the Church Fathers through the Reformers.” […]
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This high degree of organization of prokaryotic [organisms that lack nuclei] genomes is a complete surprise, and this finding carried many implications that biologists might not have considered before,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Bernhard Palsson, a professor of bioengineering at UCSDÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Jacobs School of Engineering and adjunct professor of medicine and co-author of the analysis. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/01/060130154134.htm Ask yourself […]

I have been invited to be a contributing author at Uncommon Descent, so I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself, and to explain the reasons for my interest in, and passion for, intelligent design, both as an intellectual endeavor and what I view as potentially the most profound revolution in the history […]
