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.
Evolutionists are just as fond of quote-mining as their ID counterparts. A quote of Paul Nelson’s has lately been making the rounds, appearing even in the New York Times. At a meeting of Biola University last year, Nelson remarked, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Easily the biggest challenge facing the ID community is to develop a full-fledged theory of biological Read More…
Is there a design inference here? Couple Wins Lottery 5 Times In 5 Weeks State Represetative Wants Couple Investigated
An ABC producer confirmed with me yesterday afternoon that I’m supposed to appear on Nightline this Monday (5.9.05). Steve Meyer is scheduled to debate Ken Miller on CNBC Sunday (5.8.05).
Of all my colleagues in the ID movement, the one evolutionists slime the most is Jonathan Wells. It is therefore gratifying to see his article on centrioles and their design characteristics (“Do Centrioles Generate a Polar Ejection Force?”) appear in the latest issue of a peer-reviewed biology journal. Here is the abstract to his article:
I have just made available on my designinference.com website the documents detailing the rise and fall Baylor’s now defunct Michael Polanyi Center (MPC). The MPC was the first ID think-tank connected to a major university and for about nine months was the focus of considerable media attention. The documents are of mixed quality, with a Read More…
Ordinarily, I confine my comments on this blog to topics related to ID and evolution. This post is somewhat peripheral, though not entirely since Baylor was the first major university to set up an ID research center/think-tank (the now defunct Michael Polanyi Center). Robert Sloan, the Baylor president at whose instance I was hired to Read More…
Why should evolution be the best justification for atheism?
If Bush gets one or two more Supreme Court Justices, we’ll have Intelligent Design in the classroom.
Jed Macosko and I for the last two years have been working on a Festschrift volume for Phillip Johnson (he is 65 this June). The volume, titled A Man for This Season, is now in production with InterVarsity and should be published early 2006. For the introductory material to this volume, including our preface and Read More…
ID gets prime time in Brazil
I’ve always been troubled by the claim that Mt. Rushmore was carved by sculptors. After all, where did the sculptors come from?
Scientists know that natural selection can explain the awe-inspiring complexities of organisms, and should be prepared to explain how. But attacking or dismissing intelligent design is likely to aggravate the rift between science and faith that causes students to become interested in intelligent design in the first place.
