Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

Discovery Institute announces new ID initiative, inspired in part by paleontologist Gunter Bechly


Yes,Gunter Bechly — yes, the guy who got erased from Wikipedia by trolls. He had apparently reached out in 2009:

After the Discovery Institute staff Christmas lunch last week, Stephen Meyer sat down with me for a quick video discussion of an extensive research project that, until now, has been deliberately kept from public. It’s Intelligent Design 3.0, an effort not to make the scientific case for ID directly but, instead, to use design insights to open up avenues for new scientific discoveries…

Bechly, Sternberg, and Gauger, in being affiliated with Discovery Institute, are free to pursue their research interests without fear of the censors. That’s not true of most of the senior and younger scientists in the ID 3.0 program. (How Professor Hössjer manages at Stockholm University, for one, I’m not quite sure.) In fact, the same day that Steve and I recorded this message, we recorded a second video about another project in the same research portfolio — a really cool and quite important one. However, the sober decision was made to hold this news back, for now. Darwinists will do whatever they can to punish university researchers who take an independent view of biological origins. It was better not to take that chance — again, for now.
