The list of scientists, teachers, students, and others who have faced discrimination for their public skepticism of Darwinism is long and growing.
Critics of intelligent design (ID) often lecture ID proponents that they are free to submit their work to any scientific journal.
As Yale’s David Gelernter has said of Darwinism, to challenge it is to “take your life in your hands.”
There is some evidence that once again, the diapason of opinion is being changed. The claims of intelligent design are too insistent and too plausible to be frivolously dismissed.
Let’s encourage dissent and embrace an authentically liberal approach to scientific inquiry.
