Listen Now. On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer debates Michael Shermer, founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, on the question: Should scientists be skeptical about Darwinian evolution? The debate extends into the topics of whether we should...
"'Reverse engineering' would seem to imply that there was 'engineering' in the first place." Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188

Antievolutionists Say the Darndest Things
Antievolutionists often express outrage over alleged incivility from those who oppose their efforts to evade the establishment clause of the First Amendment. But they have no difficulty in dishing out the abuse themselves. Here is a sample from the Invidious Comparisons thread that documents egregious behavior on the part of the religious antievolution advocates.
Dembski, as the director of the center, also commented on the report in a one-paragraph e-mail message following its release. "The report marks the triumph of intelligent design as a legitimate form of academic inquiry. This is a great day for academic freedom," Dembski began. He concluded by observing that "Dogmatic opponents of design who demanded the Center be shut down have met their Waterloo. Baylor University is to be commended for remaining strong in the face of intolerant assaults on freedom of thought and expression."
