Just a quick note to introduce myself – name is Doug Moran. I’ve been invited to occaisionally post items of interest about ID on this blog. In my day job I am Director, R&D at a technology company (that I prefer not to name for now) where I oversee research and development activities focused on communications and image processing systems. I’m a UCLA alumni (’84 – go Bruins!) with a degree in Electrical Engineering, minor in Economics, and strong interest in all things Physics (started out as a Physics major but my wife “helped” me see the economic benefits of switching to engineering 🙂 . My interest in ID is twofold: first, I find the science/mathematics behind ID theory facinating in their own right. Second, I marvel at the convulsions of the general scientific community as we all observe the emergence of a foundational new scientific theory. How often in one’s lifetime can that happen?
For my part, I promise to make every effort to be completely objective, not attack anyone’s beliefs, and focus just on the topics of Intelligent Design.
In my first post (link above) I find a brief opinion about a town hall meeting held to provide information about ID. It strikes me that when confronted with the rational arguments for ID without irrational attacks on everything else, ID is very difficult not to accept at least in principle, and impossible to avoid as a topic of intense scientific interest. It is also interesting how little the general public really knows about ID, and how open they are to the theory when it is presented as intended.
