Islam Online recently organized an online debate, “Evolution vs. Intelligent Design”, between Turkish journalist Mustafa Akyol and National Center for Science Education spokesman Nicholas Matzke. Akyol tells me that he countered MatzkeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s effort to portray ID as “Christian fundamentalism” to Muslims, thus urging them not to “buy” it.
That’s amusing. Genuine Christian fundamentalists don’t see ID that way at all. ID guys, they correctly note, do not thump the Bible.
Heck, the ID guys wouldn’t even thump Nick Matzke, unless they were in a really bad mood.
