One of the biggest activities that I missed while living abroad in South Africa doing my PhD was participating in Discovery Institute’s Summer Seminars.
The aim as always is to provide graduates of the Seminars a major boost and ongoing mentorship aimed at launching their own careers in science and scholarship.
It’s a (cost-free) “summer camp for science and humanities nerds,” says philosopher of biology Paul Nelson.
The Seminars have consistently borne great fruit. Graduate students, post-docs, even faculty are now doing research on intelligent design that will have an impact someday.
One of the consequences of academia’s embargo against ID is that students on their own university campuses can’t learn about evidence for design in nature.
