Why Are They So Angry?
There are a lot of articles out there on the web intended to refute my writings on Intelligent Design, but if there is one that isn’t full of anger and personal insults, I haven’t located it yet. Other ID proponents have experienced similar reactions to their writings, and must have also wondered, why are they so angry? I think we all know that the source of this anger is not, as our critics claim, a fear that drawing the obvious conclusions from the scientific evidence for design in Nature threatens the foundations of science.
It is clear to me that we will never reach many of these people by simply uncovering more evidence, or strengthening our arguments: the better our logic, the more angry they become. The source of this anger no doubt lies outside the world of science.
