Here’s a first in Canada, maybe: A conference at the University of Toronto (September 29-20, 2006) on intelligent design and the universe/life that is not just the usual “God and science” snore – at least the organizers will do everything in their power to keep it from being the usual theistic evolution cop-out snooze. Here’s what you will NOT primarily hear:
“Faith, you see, is about feelings and involves no evidence at all.Ã‚Â Materialism is about facts because it is based on evidence. And, guess what, folks, materialism IS science! So if ever you get it into your little pinhead that you think you see design in the universe or life forms, or that you have consciousness or free will, rest assured that the most eminent science authorities, backed by the most loudly harumphing of degreed clergymen,Ã‚Â have declared thatÃ‚Â it ain’t so.”
Yeah right. In fact, the conference had to be kept under wraps for fear of cancellation due to administration fear of controversy. A differentÃ‚Â university had to back out of holding it, due to threats. (More of the joys of intellectual freedom under a materialist regime.)
Come if you can, but preferably not if you are looking for a pious snooze. We mean no harm, but cannot guarantee an undisturbed rest.
