Intelligent Design proponents are propagandising via the Internet, and their blogs are truly a sight to behold. Their posts are sometimes so galling and perplexing that I literally sit agape at my computer as I read their takes on evolution and ID.
I am at times tempted to address their posts, but given the volume it seems like an insurmountable task. Hell’s Handmaiden nonetheless does a fantastic job of tearing them to logical shreds. Here’s a collection of recent posts and responses.
- On the democracy of facts — wherin public opinion is cited as proof. Uncommon Descent on why we should teach ID in public schools. HH’s response
- On the soundness of genetic theories regarding the origin of life, Uncommon Descent is quick to say that new evidence further discredits Darwinian evolution. HH points out that in their eagerness they miss the point entirely.
- Intelligent Design the Future posts an interview with David Berlinski, a man they term a “Darwin Scourge”, but HH highlights the many reasons why what he has to say is not worth considering in a serious way.
If the ID issue is of concern to you, Hell’s Handmaiden and the blogs he links to and discusses are valuable additions to your feed aggregator.
