Intelligent Design: Yes! No!
Today, 9 am eastern time: C-Span’s “Washington Journal” debates “Intelligent Design.” For: some activist. Against: some other activist. Our point: Why do advocates of ID — who insist that ID is good science — put forth activists as spokespeople rather than scientists? And why do opponents of ID — who insist that ID is bad science — put forth activists rather than scientists? Because ID isn’t about science, it’s about rhetorical power in the public sphere.
