Peering at the Review
Well, at long last! Intelligent Design scientists are finally getting around to publishing their results! Robert Crowther is over at the Discovery Institute's Whine and Jeez blog crowing about the plethora of articles by "a veritable who's who of intelligent design scientists and scholars" that was just published in that well-known science journal, Salvo magazine.
What? You haven't heard about that bastion of fair-minded, peer-reviewed scientific articles? Well, read all about it at its "About" page:
Blasting holes in scientific naturalism, marveling at the intricate design of the universe, and promoting life in a culture of death;And what might that "worldview" be? Maybe a peek at the listed publisher, The Fellowship of St. James, will give a clue:
Critiquing art, music, film, television, and literature, interrupting mass media influence, and questioning the sanity of our consumerist lifestyle;
Countering destructive ideologies, replacing revisionist fictions with undeniable facts, and paring away political correctness;
Debunking the cultural myths that have undercut human dignity, all but destroyed the notions of virtue and morality, and slowly eroded our appetite for transcendence;
Recovering the one worldview that actually works.
The Fellowship of St. James (FSJ) was incorporated in the early 1970's to uphold biblical, orthodox Christianity. It has three goals: (1) to promote and defend classical Christian doctrine, (2) to encourage the life in Christ, (3) and to foster a united witness to biblical Christian truth to a secular society. ...But remember folks! ID has nothing to do with religion, nosirree Bob! It's just science!
The enterprise is founded in a shared belief in the fundamental doctrines of the faith as revealed in Holy Scripture and summarized in the ancient creeds of the Church.
