Speaker stands behind theory

Intelligent design proponent William Dembski stood on an empty stage Monday at the Lied Center.

Organizers of the event had tried in advance to get a science professor to spar with him, but all who were asked declined.

Dembski, a professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., expounded on the theory and criticized evolution before a nearly packed auditorium.

“I hope that tonight shows that there is substance to this science,” said Mark Brown, director of Campus Crusade, which invited Dembski to campus. “Real science should pursue the truth. Truth is the friend of science and religion equally.”

Dembski’s statements were met with both applause and heckles.

To Jack Krebs, president of Kansas Citizens for Science, a group critical of intelligent design, Dembski was floundering in a substanceless middle ground somewhere between science and religion.

“It was not science and it was not religion,” Krebs said. “Therefore it was fairly uneventful in my mind.”

When asked about how biology teachers should teach intelligent design theory, Dembski said teachers should “go as far as you can.

but I thought the DI was against this type of attitude???

On the other hand, Dembski was the scared one during the Dover trial, refusing to take the stand and stand up for his buddies...

In an unsurprising act of cowardice, not a single Darwimpian defender of the faith scientist had the balls fiber to stand up to our fearless leader in Kansas yesterday...

This is the same neutered, "fearless" leader that dodged the Ken Miller science bullet at Case University AFTER he had originally agreed to the debate?  And Miller was left with an empty stage?

Dave Scot, until the intelligent design cult provides some scientific evidence supporting intelligent design creationism,  you should probably not expect too many scientists to show up at your campus crusade christian cult events.

Man I wish I could still post at uncommon poop...
