Ken Miller on the future of ID

Ken Miller has offered the final portion of his discussion of Luskin, Behe and clotting. He ends with the following: The only relevant question at this point is why the Discovery Institute keeps highlighting its own failings in this way. Why are Casey and his employers now — three years after the Dover trial —…

  Carl Zimmer is presenting a series of posts by Ken Miller in which Miller takes on DI-flack Casey Luskin’s attempt to claim that he misrepresented research regarding the evolution of clotting proteins when he gave testimony in Kitzmiller v. Dover (way back in 2005). See here and here. The third – and final –…

Over at the Panda’s Thumb, Dave Wisker has (correctly) pointed out that members of the DI-funded Biologic Institute produced four papers in 2008: D’Andrea-Winslow L, Novitski AK (2008) Active bleb formation is abated in Lytechinus variegatus red spherule coelomocytes after disruption of acto-myosin contractility. Integrative Zoology 3: 106-113. doi:10.1111/j.1749-4877.2008.00086.x Axe DD, Dixon BW, Lu P…

The Year in ID – 2008 Edition

It has become sort of a tradition for me to present an end-of-year roundup of the “achievements” of the intelligent design movement. Last year I noted that the IDists achieved even less than in the previous year, noting that they had achieved so little that I actually didn’t blog much on ID. This year, it…

Latest Fuller

Quoth Fuller: But I happen to think that there is something more worth arguing about here, and a better way to think about the stakes is to ask, Suppose the matter of evidence remains unresolved or equally balanced: What difference does it make whether I endorse ID or Darwinism? Does it lead me to do…

Well it’s official, Steve Fuller (see here, here, here and here) has officially joined the ID echo-chamber that is Uncommon Descent. He will, apparently, be arguing that “Darwinism is an undead 19th century social theory” indeed stripped of its current scientific scaffolding, Darwinism is a 19th century social theory that has been turned into a…

ID rap (seriously!)

I have a dislike of hip-hop and rap. But when it is mixed with ID, well, I’m speechless. Witness Atom tha Immortal‘s silken rhymes: Apocalyptic G-d presence/ Feeling the fire of G-d’s essence/ You need Rosetta Stones to unlock my poem’s message/ Born in a body of sand since early dawn/ Adam spawned genetic code…

On working biochemists

O’Leary: “Behe is a working biochemist“ Me: “Funny definition of working you’re using there, Denyse”

ID and Global Warming – No contest

Over at Uncommon Descent, “DaveScot” has attempted to make the case that “public interest in global warming evaporates”. By his own measure, public interest in ID barely exists.

Catholic News Service reports: Speakers invited to attend a Vatican-sponsored congress on the evolution debate will not include proponents of creationism and intelligent design, organizers said. The Pontifical Council for Culture, Rome’s Pontifical Gregorian University and the University of Notre Dame in Indiana are organizing an international conference in Rome March 3-7 as one of…
