Guillermo Gonzalez has issued the following response to the attacks leveled at him following the June showing of the Privileged Planet at the Smithsonian:
“Avida is not a simulation of intelligent design; it is an instance of it.”
This just in from a colleague of mine who focuses on the controversy over evolution in the public school science curriculum:
Philip Clayton, a professor at the Claremont School of Theology, asked me to contribute an article to The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Science that he is editing. He asked me specifically to write on the topic “In Defense of Intelligent Design” for the section titled “Central Theoretical Debates in Religion and Science: Intelligent Design […]
TRIZ (a Russian acronym that is usually translated “theory of inventive problem solving” and is pronounced treez) was developed by Russian scientists and engineers trying to understand technological evolution.

ID, which thrives as the subversive instrument par excellence for exposing priestcraft dressed in a scientific lab coat
