There was a debate/panel discussion over intelligent design at Biola University on May 12th. The ID side was represented by Michael Behe , Paul Nelson, Guillermo Gonzales, Jonathan Wells, and Steve Meyer; all prominent ID-ers. The opposition included a philosopher, journalist, biochemist (the only scientist on this side), and a state university religion professor. I haven’t heard anything about how it went.
I think a strong case can be made for many aspects of ID, but I was disappointed when I saw the list of anti-ID panelists, and think they may have did themselves a disservice by selecting a weak panel of opponents. If a case can be made for ID, it needs to be able to stand up to the tough questions, and tough questioners.
Grace and Peace
