Pat Hayes over at Red State Rabble was wondering at the lack of any comment coming from Evolution News & Views or Uncommon Descent about the recent U.S. elections, considering all the time they spent telling us that public opinion surveys showed how many people were absolutely clamoring for ID to be taught in public schools.

Well, finally the DI has broken the silence.

And who should they shove out in front of the lines ... I mean turn to for sage comment ... but Denyse (accent on the "Deny") O'Leary, who they call a "Canadian science writer" (of all things), claiming that she is "famed" for her Mindful Hack blog that she just launched a tad over 24 hours ago! It supposedly will deal with the "neuroscience implications of ID", which we can all agree, I'm sure, good ol' Deny is expert in.

Oh, and about the elections . . . if you parochial Americans think, just because pushing ID into public schools is dead as a political ploy in the U.S., that means that the rest of the world won't fall for it, at least for a decade or two, you got another think coming!

The DI makes the obligatory claim that neither elections nor court cases can keep ID down because it is a scientific controversy. But, as "Ron O" over at pointed out, if they can't convince even Phillip Johnson, the acknowledged "Godfather" of ID, that there is a real scientific controversy, why should anyone else believe 'em?

I also don’t think that there is really a theory of intelligent design at the present time to propose as a comparable alternative to the Darwinian theory, which is, whatever errors it might contain, a fully worked out scheme. There is no intelligent design theory that’s comparable. Working out a positive theory is the job of the scientific people that we have affiliated with the movement. Some of them are quite convinced that it’s doable, but that’s for them to prove … No product is ready for competition in the educational world.

But maybe Phil is just another one of those biased materialistic Darwinists ...

I savor, lead to I found just what I was looking for.
You have ended my 4 day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day.
