You may remember the story of how the first European Conference on Intelligent Design (TDI Europe) was chased out of two universities in Portugal only to find refuge in León, Spain.
Three separate posters for the conference on ID had to be prepared, as it was chased from university to university.
Whether the context is Wikipedia or the academic scene on the Iberian Peninsula, the scientific “consensus” on ID is maintained by shutting down debate and silencing scholarship.
Some ideas are just too risky to discuss in a university setting, and intelligent design is near the top of the list.
We reported here the other day that distinguished German paleontologist Günter Bechly was erased by Wikipedia.
