CHRISTIANITY TODAY on Privileged Planet Controversy

Jewish mathematician David Berlinski, a well-known critic of Darwinism, told Christianity Today, “I thought the uproar was indecent. I am in general appalled but not surprised by the willingness of academics to give up every principle of free speech and honest debate whenever they think they can do so without paying a price.” MORE

Science and theism on the table. Church and State sharing meals together. It's already prophesied for America 229. The challenging issue (degenerative or retrograde, as it is) is that W. Dembski claims ID theory (or theories) is THE BRIDGE between science and theology. ID is a (supposed) REVOlution! Ears should hear and not just pass by this repeated refrain. Could it be true? Dr. M. Behe claims ID has implications for 'all humane studies,' though he doesn't study any of those 'humane studies' professionally himself. There's heresy and hot air in such claims to knowledge and future trends, as catholic as they may be for the science and religion dialogue. And he won't back down, he'll stand his ground. Just like a Petty might sing. Do the Evolution - by Pearl Jam "I'm ahead, I'm a man I'm the first mammal to wear pants, yeah I'm at peace with my lust I can kill 'cause in God I trust, yeah It's evolution, baby This land is mine, this land is free I'll do what I want but irresponsibly It's evolution, baby I am ahead, I am advanced I am the first mammal to make plans, yeah I crawled the earth, but now I'm higher Twenty-ten, watch it go to fire." Dembski against Vedder; we can wonder who is more priviledged in their claims to the public imagination. g.a. g arago
Pretty good read, i couldnt find any words better than that which said by Todd Peterson. "That the Smithsonian as an institution pulled its support is really indicative of society today. That scientists centuries ago had no problem putting science and theism on the table at the same time is historical. That we cannot do so today is degenerative or retrograde." - source the above mentioned article from Christianity Today Charlie Charliecrs
