In Anticipation of Darwin Day, What Would Charles Darwin Say About "Censor of the Year" Jerry Coyne?

Here's an Interesting and Worthwhile Scientific Volume Advocating, and Challenging, "Intelligible Design"
A thoughtful work like this, with contributors from a variety of scientific fields, shows that design in nature is being debated -- and advocated -- by scientists and scholars around the world. Casey Luskin http://www.discovery.org/p/188
Advance the Future of ID: Join Us in Publicizing Discovery Institute's Summer Seminar on Intelligent Design

I may see this a bit differently from some of my Discovery colleagues. Michael Egnor

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.
IDC advocate Jonathan Wells:
These critics include embryologists, paleontologists, biochemists, molecular biologists, medical doctors, philosophers, and even lawyers. Unfortunately, the North American science-and-religion establishment has largely turned a deaf ear to these critics, preferring instead to abandon classical theology and embrace metaphysical materialism and moral relativism. But I see the situation as analogous to the last years of Soviet communism. A small, powerful elite controls all the official information outlets while the evidence against the official position swells quietly, like a wave building offshore. Someday soon, to the surprise of many people in academia and the media, the wave will break. I predict that the Darwinist establishment will come apart at the seams, just as the Soviet Empire did in 1990.Link
