All the hyperbole shows the fix is in — Wallace has been made safe for scientism and Darwinian reductionism. The academy can breathe easy.
If any modern ID proponent fits the Wallacean model it is biologist Michael Behe.
We can add Andrew Berry to the list of those quick to praise Alfred Wallace on certain matters but equally quick to condemn him on others.
Although Wallace receded into the deep recesses of my memory, I had what Pasteur called “the prepared mind.”
I certainly wouldn’t have recognized his full significance if I had not already been introduced to ID by reading Johnson, Behe, and Dembski.
