Yesterday, we noted that Trinity College of Florida now offers an online “Darwinism & Intelligent Design” course.
UD News wrote to ask the prof, Thomas Woodward, why our readers should take the course. Should the combox Darwin fans take it? Needless to say, we only have good quality Darwin fans here*, and we would not want them wasting their time or money or energy. He replied,
For one, this is the first time, to my knowledge, that a quality online course, focused exclusively on the history of the scientific controversy between ID and Darwinism, has ever been offered, particularly, as taught by one who was “there from the start, taking notes and gathering video clips.” So…if someone wants to be come thoroughly conversant on WHY ID has thrived, in spite of, and even somewhat because of, the rhetorical onslaught of the Darwinists, this course will equip them to know this topic thoroughly.
Also, the course features some “never seen before” historic footage of the founding of ID, with Phil Johnson, Behe, and other guys “coming on board.”
So…I hope some can take advantage, and/or make their networks of ID sympathizers aware of it. We can enroll people up to August 16, even though (technically) it starts on Aug 9th.
Darwinists should take it to see all that they have missed, in the substance of this debate, if they have lived on the pablum of superficial sound bytes for the past couple of decades.
Now that non-Darwinist microbiologist James Shapiro is writing regularly at the Huffington Post, Darwin’s followers will have to get used to hard questions, and not all from ID theorists.
