Evolution goes toe-to-toe with intelligent design

Professors speak as part of three-day Science vs. Science program

Wallace McKelvey

Event at the University of Delaware, October 25, 2006, reported in the University of Delaware’s independent student newspaper.

 Scott Minnich, who spoke in support of Intelligent Design, is quoted in the article:

Minnich said the history of science is one funeral after another, as new theories are met with opposition.

“For the first time in my academic career I feel like quitting,” he said.

(Minnich testified in Kansas in support of science standards that redefined “science,” to remove the characterization of science as a quest to explain nature on the basis of natural processes.)

    Hm, for a professor Minnich seems remarkably out of touch about evolutionary theory. Falling back on the old flagella chestnut, which has been explained quite nicely already?

    Intelligent Design certainly is not science and doesn’t belong in the classroom.
