Arthur Asuncion at UCI sends this notice about an ID event at UCI. I posted the following comment:
I just spent some time at the iDesign UCI site. Thanks so much for sending the link. It’s a terrific resource.
It is going to be very interesting to watch the Intelligent Design versus Blind-Watchmaker-Evolution debate in coming years, because technically competent people who have a reasonably well-integrated knowledge of modern hard science (mathematics — especially combinatorics — chemistry, physics, and software engineering), know way too much for very many of them to buy BWE for much longer.
The first of the two main reasons that those with the above-mentioned technical knowledge and experience are holdouts, and continue to accept BWE, is that they have been so thoroughly and consistently indoctrinated that they can no longer reasonably evaluate the evidence. The second reason is that if they do question the evidence for, and logic behind, BWE, their academic careers will be mercilessly destroyed.
