William Dembski Addresses Forthcoming Intelligent Design Research that Advances ID and Answers Critics
How lovely to know before it happens not only that this “research” will yield answers for his critics, but that those answers will advance his own particular beliefs. Watch him move in one paragraph from “It’s too early to tell what the impact of my ideas is on science” to “I think ID is finally in a position to challenge certain fundamental assumptions in the natural sciences about the nature and origin of information. This, I believe, will have a large impact on science.” Unless, of course, the research continues to be as unsuccessful as it’s been thus far.
Meanwhile, the DI’s Casey Luskin acknowledges that ID is creationism, and creationist brane serjun Michael Egnor claims that it is a “bad denouement” if “natural selection is true regardless of the substrate on which it acts,” claiming that this observation “impl[ies] that natural selection is a tautology.” I’m not sure why it would be a bad result to show that something is true, but I’m afraid that gravity must also be a tautology. Bad denouement.
