The Year in ID - 2007 Edition.

Category: Intelligent Design
Posted on: December 16, 2007 10:49 AM, by John Lynch

Twelve months ago I offered a roundup of the "advances" made by the intelligent design movement in 2006, a month-by-month roundup which differed significantly from the assessment of John West. I had started to do the same for this year, but quickly realized that the ID movement achieved absolutely nothing over the past twelve months. They had achieved so little, I was actually not posting much on the subject. Seriously. Sure, I discussed West getting destroyed in public by historian Mark Borrello, and Frank Beckwith quitting the DI, but by and large the year was filled with ... nothing. The Disco Institute spent the end of the year either beating the dead horse that is Gonzalez’s tenure rejection, blathering on about Expelled or cheerleading Antony Flew’s conversion. (Of course the latter doesn’t mention Flew’s apparent eugenic sympathies.) Put bluntly, ID has not moved forward as a science one iota since this time last year. Depressing really. I mean, you’d like the opposition to at least try, otherwise the victories are just too damned easy.

Has anyone thought of copying that sweater and selling it to raise money for the cause?

You mean, kidnap it and ransom it back to Dembski...? :)  No one else wants it.

You'd have to copy it. The truckstop going-out-of-business sale where Dembski got the original is long over.

Actually, I'd guess that it was hand-knitted for him by a doting student, who just happened to descend from primates more closely related to orangutans than to chimps...
