This amazing news was found at the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog. It’s titled Major “Ibero-American Intelligent Design Congress” Reaches the Spanish-Speaking World, and it was written by Casey Luskin. If you don’t know who he is, see Casey Is Back — O the Joy! Here are some excerpts from Casey’s new post, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
This past weekend Steve Meyer and I participated in an exciting Spanish-language conference on intelligent design, the [foreign language omitted] “First Ibero-American Congress on the Theory of Intelligent Design.” The conference was exceptionally well produced [That’s nice!], and was hosted, in part, by Dr. Marcos Eberlin, who is seen with me on the screen in the image above. The main host, however, was Dr. AM [That’s his name?] (also pictured above, at right), a PhD chemist and extremely bright scientist who is doing ID research with the ID 3.0 Research Program [What?] at Mackenzie University’s Center on Intelligent Design in São Paulo, Brazil.
Sounds like a great event. Curiously, we’re never told where the thing was, but it doesn’t really matter. Then Casey says:
At the Congress, Dr. Meyer spoke on “Return of the God Hypothesis,” a lecture based upon his eponymous book. [Link omitted!] His lecture was in two parts. I gave a talk on “Fósiles homínidos y diseño inteligente” — which as you might guess means, “Hominid fossils and intelligent design.”
Sounds thrilling. After that he tells us:
Other speakers at the Congress included Marcos Eberlin, who discussed how biochemical complexity challenges Darwinian evolution [Ooooooooooooh! A challenge to evolution!], and AM, who asked whether naturalistic chemical processes alone could have produced the first life.
What a stimulating conference! Casey continues:
Chilean biology professor Dr. Ricardo Bravo Méndez explained how modern evolutionary biology has failed to account for the origin of new body forms. [Egad!] Dr. Juan Manuel Torres, a philosopher of science who asked whether evolution or intelligent design should be considered as “science.” [Gasp!] Dr. Roberto Biaggi, a biologist with expertise in paleontology, spoke on whether fossils support intelligent design. [They do?]
And there’s lots more! Let’s read on:
Antonio Roman Martinez Fernandez, a PhD in medicine, also lectured on biochemical evidence for intelligent design. Cristian Aguirre Del Pino, an accomplished engineer who has written many books on intelligent design, spokeabout [sic] evidence for intelligent design. Philosopher Felipe Aizpun spoke on intelligent design as a historically scientific theory. Lastly, mathematician and ID advocate Saulo Reis spoke about how information [Hee hee!] helps us to detect design.
Stunningly impressive! And now we come to the end:
The participant map, shared by the conference organizers below shows that the conference’s impressive reach of people all around the Spanish-speaking world, and beyond: [Click over there to see it!] I hope there will be future Ibero-American Congresses on Intelligent Design. If and when that happens, we will keep you posted!
It’s thrilling to see how the Discoveroids’ theory is traveling around the world. Where will they go next?
