The Christians in Science website (which I’ve hitherto not visited) has a brief report on Stephen Meyer’s C4ID sponsored lecture (Stephen Meyer – 17th Nov). This is the lecture that I didn’t attend last week (An evening with the Centre for Intelligent Design: why I didn’t attend). Sounds like I didn’t miss much! The writer begins by saying that pretty much everyone he know sin the Science Faith community was invited to the lecture. He goes on to review the contents and the (anonymous) reaction of at least one senior attendee, before concluding:
I was hoping for a much better talk from so well known a speaker, but basically it boiled down to the incredulity argument coupled with a God of the gaps conclusion. The event reminded me of why I no longer bother to read any of the ID literature, and generally consider anyone who takes ID seriously as either being naive about science or alternatively a bit stupid.
Pretty much par for the course for the strategy of ID creationists, I’d say.
