View From the Pulpit - Atheist - Derren Brown on Intelligent Design

1 comment:

  1. Derren is spot on with this; people *want* to see teleology; they are primed to see design. I have a post, "Why Intelligent Design is a load of old soap" on my blog, in which I approached this from the viewpoint of ID being a "solution" for which there isn't a problem, at least in biology. A commenter, who has been entirely civil, but nonetheless somewhat misguided, is trying to make me see the light, that ID should be considered a valid scientific hypothesis. As is so often the case, he has a few basic misunderstandings of evolution. If anyone is tempted to come over and have a discussion, be nice, but be prepared to scratch your head...
