IT took them long enough. The neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids) have now given us their long-suppressed evidence for Intelligent Design. At least we think that’s what they’ve done.
At the Discoveroid blog they have this history-making post: Is Intelligent Design Science?
If you’re a “Darwinist,” you probably think that question was decided with awesome finality when experts from both sides testified under oath in the celebrated case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. We summarized that part of the case here: Kitzmiller v. Dover: Is ID Science?
But the Discoveroid creationists are too magnificent to let a minor judicial setback discourage them. They keep doing “research.” Now, in answer to their blog post’s title (“Is Intelligent Design Science?”) they say this:
Dr. Stephen Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell thinks so.
They’re referring to Discoveroid “Senior Fellow” (i.e., incurably full-blown creationist) Stephen C. Meyer. As we reported here, he was one of three creationist “experts” who were on the 6-member panel selected by Don McLeroy to testify before the Texas Board of Education regarding standards for science education. And before that, Meyer was a central figure in the notoriously shabby peer review controversy.
As you can see here: Discovery Institute: Their 2007 Tax Return, that year the Discoveroids paid Meyer (their Vice President) $102,500, plus expenses. Not a bad gig, really.
But let’s return to the Discoveroid blog. After telling us that Meyer thinks ID is science, what else do they say? Nothing. The only other content of their blog article is an embedded video you can watch, in which — we assume — Meyer reveals why ID is science. If you click over there and watch that video, then you too will know The Truth™
So scoot over to the Discoveroid website and take a look. If you learn anything new, let us know. If it sounds interesting, maybe we’ll check it out.
