In Happier News...

Happily, there are still some media outlets out there who care about truth and eloquence. CSICOP's Creation Watch site has just posted my second column. It's a condensed version of my researches into a blatant instance of quote-mining by William Dembski. Enjoy!

I took particular note of Dembski’s quoted remark that “evolution has become an exercise in filling holes by digging others.” Certainly, Intelligent Design is an exercise in filling a few alleged minor holes in evolution theory by postulating a vast gap in our knowledge of the alleged designer.

Jay Wesley Richards, in the same blog, on April 29, supposedly filled that hole by saying “I’ve always been troubled by the claim that Mt. Rushmore was carved by sculptors. After all, where did the sculptors come from?” Aha! Crushing argument!!(?) Even if we didn’t know that the sculptor was Gutzon Borglum, we would still know that the design and creation of that sculpture are within the bounds of human achievement. On the other hand, the willful design and implementation of living forms is beyond the capability of any known entity.

I fear at this point that the Intelligent Design faction will retort that there is such a known entity, called God. But God is neither known nor knowable. God is inscrutable, unknowable, inconsistent.

Science was, and still is, a search for the Laws of Nature, that is, for consistencies among observed facts. To postulate God as an agent is to deny that there is any further knowledge to be gained by such a search. We don’t know that yet.
