What happened to David Coppedge illustrates how the scientific “consensus” on intelligent design is enforced.
As with cancel culture, ID proponents and Darwin skeptics were well aware of this issue for years, long before it came to the forefront in the present moment.
No one in the intelligent design research community could have said this with greater punch.
It is all about the costs of getting on the wrong side of the power structure. To say that this “chills” debate about scientific issues is an understatement.
The censors came for us first, and no one protested. Now they’re coming for you. Indeed, they are coming for Charles Darwin himself.
