Friday Five: Dr. Stephen Meyer, Discovery Institute
by Kim Trobee, editor
With the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species fast approaching, Dr. Meyer explains the holes in the theory of evolution and the magnificent ode to intelligent design.
Dr. Stephen Meyer is director and senior fellow of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute.
Wikipedia:"What will it take for the scientific community to open up to the possibility of intelligent design?"
The Discovery Institute is ... best known for its advocacy of intelligent design.
Its Teach the Controversy campaign aims to teach creationist anti-evolution beliefs in United States public high school science courses.
The Institute has manufactured the controversy they want to teach by promoting a false perception that evolution is "a theory in crisis", through incorrectly claiming that it is the subject of wide controversy and debate within the scientific community.
In 2005, a federal court ruled that the Discovery Institute pursues "demonstrably religious, cultural, and legal missions", and the institute's manifesto, the Wedge strategy, describes a religious goal: to "reverse the stifling dominance of the materialist worldview, and to replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions".
Dearest, the burden of proof is on you to prove that Intelligent Design is something that can be proven scientifically.
Intelligent Design is a religion. Defining religion as science is a lie.
And for those of you who are interested in fully appreciating the richness of the deceit and dishonesty of the Intelligent Design movement, watch PBS’s Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial. They have plenty of resources, including a transcript of the show.
Oh, and by the way, since when is “materialistic” science required to prove the already-known "fact" of Adam and Eve?
