Over at Christianity Today the Church Lady (tardette) reviews Johnson's latest...Bold emphasis mine.
|Every few months, a wise head predicts the end of Intelligent Design|
Yeah, kinda like you and Dembski and the rest of the wingnuts who predict the demise of "Darwinism" every other week.
|—in time for the next uproar. Darwin's Nemesis, a collection of essays in honor of Phillip Johnson—the Berkeley law professor whose Darwin on Trial started the controversy in 1991—helps readers understand why id cannot simply go away. Long before Johnson, many scientists objected to Darwinism, but lacked a framework for their objections in an academic environment committed to reductive materialism. Johnson's legal approach provided that framework.|
No kidding, when your ideas are clearly unscientific skip the lab and go for the courtroom. That approach was a real humdinger in Dover and later in California.
|Steve Meyer's analysis of the Cambrian explosion, reprinted here, should have interested only the few paleontologists who really care about extinct organisms from half a billion years ago. His paper instead became headline news, because it challenged Darwinism.|
Odd, as I recall it made a blip and mainly because most everything Meyer's wrote was false. Or perhaps we're talking about a different Steve Meyer?
|Mathematician William Dembski, Johnson's successor as informal leader of the id community, offers reflections on how a small, beleaguered band of scientists succeeded in bringing their issues to the front page. One reason he suggests is that id is not a top-down community and thus is less vulnerable to politically correct scientific orthodoxy. As this volume demonstrates, we can expect more such uproars in the coming years.|
I love it when you call Dembski a "mathematician" but probably not as much as Dembski loves it. What a laff riot! And what's this, Dembski is now in charge of the ID fiasco? Cool. Does this mean Dave Tard is the #2 man in charge?
Hey Church Lady, what's it like to be such a lying baffoon? Will misleading Christianity Today readers get you into heaven quicker?
(yes I know baffoon is spelled buffoon but I prefer pronouncing it with an "a").
