The Discovery Institute has a new post by Daniel Reeves, their recently appointed “Educational Outreach Assistant.” We first mentioned him a couple of months ago in The Discoveroids’ Creationist Curriculum. His job seems to be mostly promoting creationist books by other Discoveroids.
Daniel’s latest appearance at the Discoveroids’ creationist blog is titled Science and Culture Network Announces New Chapter in Colorado. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
We are excited to announce a new Science and Culture Network chapter, in Colorado. Following the launch of our first chapter, in Houston, this will be the second regional group dedicated to supporting the work of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, with its mission to advance the understanding that life and the universe are the result of intelligent design.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] This really is exciting! We wrote about the creation of their Houston chapter a year and a half ago — see Discovery Institute’s Thrilling New Enterprise. We compared it to Casey Luskin’s failed effort to establish a nationwide, campus-based anti-science movement they called IDEA Clubs (IDEA = Intelligent Design and Evolution Awareness).
But where Casey failed, Daniel is succeeding. It appears that their Science & Culture Network has two — count ’em, two — nodes! Yes, dear reader, this is the way new theories are established. Einstein probably did the same thing with a network of relativity clubs. Then Daniel says:
The Colorado chapter is a diverse and committed group of engineers, medical doctors, philosophers, teachers, cabinet makers [Hee hee!], and other professionals. They share a belief that “scientific progress is impeded and culture is degraded when the scope of scientific research and debate is artificially limited by excluding the mounting evidence for design in our universe and in life itself, design that cannot be explained by undirected processes.”
How wonderful! After that, Daniel tells us:
On Thursday, October 26, the chapter will hold its first public event: at Colorado Christian University [Great location!] with a keynote address by Dr. Douglas Axe, molecular biologist and director of Biologic Institute.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The Discoveroids have their own, in-house “peer reviewed” journal, BIO-Complexity, their own creation science research facility, the Biologic Institute, and their own “peer reviewed” vanity press operation, (Discovery Institute Press). This has caused intelligent design to be described as a cargo cult. Daniel continues:
Axe’s address will present the message of his recent book, Undeniable, which argues that the key to understanding our origin lies in the “design intuition” — the innate belief shared by all humans that tasks we would need knowledge to accomplish can only be accomplished by someone who has that knowledge.
In other words, the fact that the world appears to be designed is a testament to the truth that it is, in fact, designed. Our intuition is often grounded in logic more than we know.
This looks like it’s going to be a great event. Hey — you can attend! Let’s read on:

We usually omit Discoveroid links, but we included that one to encourage you to visit Colorado Christian University for what is likely to be a life-altering event.
So there you are, dear reader. The Discoveroids are moving ahead. It won’t be long now before the whole world is enraptured by their scientific theory of Oogity Boogity!
