Discovery Institute is populating a community of dissenters in academia with the annual all-expenses-paid Summer Seminars.
Dr. S. Joshua Swamidass and I spoke on the topic of God and Evolution.
Other teachers are drawn from the ranks of those 1000+ Darwin-doubting scientists who have publicly identified themselves.
The Seminars have consistently borne great fruit. Graduate students, post-docs, even faculty are now doing research on intelligent design that will have an impact someday.
At most colleges and universities, perhaps including the one you yourself attend, research and teaching about intelligent design is forbidden science.
