Thomas Kuhn argued from the history of science that reigning scientific paradigms do not give way gently and rationally before new and conflicting evidence.
Earlier this month, Michael Flannery and John West discussed the legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) on the occasion of his birthday.
Says our colleague Professor Flannery, “I have little doubt that if Wallace were alive today he would be an ID theorist of the first order.”
Adults across the board engage in public fights where the personal destruction of ideological enemies is always a ready weapon.
Intelligent design scientists, Adam Shapiro thinks, could redeem ID as being “apolitical” precisely by playing politics with science.
