I know this is a bit of a repeat of old news, but I thought some of you might appreciate a slightly different take on the McGill failure to put ID in it’s “proper place”.
The proponents of what came to be called “intelligent design” are naturally being denounced by “respectable scientific authority,” and since advocacy of “ID” is obviously a career terminator, only about 10 percent of scientists (many safely retired) have done so. But their number is growing, and the movement is regarded by the scientific establishment as a serious danger.
See what else Mr. Byfield has to say about it here.
From the first article above you might also be interested to note that Alters, the McGill professor attemting to debunk ID,
was the only Canadian to testify in the Dover Pennsylvania school board case, that teaching the Intelligent Design theory in schools is unconstitutional. He called the ruling against ID Ã¢â‚¬Å“a major defeat for the proponents of a religious concept that attempts to introduce supernatural causation into science, where it simply doesn’t belong.Ã¢â‚¬Â
