I’m interested in any comments about the following article. (I don’t know how to post it as a main topic, so I’m attempting to post in here for someone to do as they see fit with it).

“A new movement is starting to shake a scientific establishment built on the assumptions of Darwinian evolution. What is intelligent design, and why is it gaining so much ground?”

I followed the link to Planet FreeRepublic, where the article in question was reproduced in full, citing (I thought) a "good new magazine".

But follow that link, and you realize it's Good News Magazine. (You know, "Good News", as in "Gospel"). Then in the comments that follow, the Freepers are seriously asking "if ID is supposed to be religious, then what religion is it supposed to be associated with?"

(A clue might have been the list of Key Words at the end of the article, including "Christ")

The linked article is, indeed, quite the piece of crap.  Not that it's anything we haven't seen here before, of course.  (Eeewww, it's full of bacterial flagella.  Get some Lysol...)

My favorite line in the linked article:

Quote
Meanwhile, at a biology lab in a Pennsylvanian university, biochemist Michael Behe was also puzzled by the astounding complexity he found inside the cell.


Hmmm.  I'm also frequently puzzled by things I find out in the field and lab.  Guess I should just rein in my curiosity, stop taking the time to refine my field and lab techniques, and start agitating for public schools to teach that natural phenomena are just too difficult to understand.

Yeah, I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with a prototype for three months at work. Guess I should adopt ID Theory.

There are indeed a lot of hilarious quotes to be found in the article. I think I like this one best:

Exciting information is coming out almost daily about "intelligent design," a concept challenging the reigning worldview of Darwinian evolution in classrooms and the media, not to mention in the biology labs.

I thought this so funny I just had to post a reply:

Dean Morrison:


   I would have thought there might be a clue in the ‘Topics’ listed at the top of this section:

   “TOPICS:
   KEYWORDS: CHRIST; DESIGN; EVOLUTION; GOD; INTELLIGENT; ORIGINS”
