UPDATE: SMU faculty members have written an open letter critical of the Discovery Institute presentation on their campus.
Last week the Seattle-based Discovery Institute descended on the Southern Methodist University campus in Dallas for another of its junk-science forums attempting to debunk evolutionary science. The event, “Four Nails in Darwin’s Coffin,” included a film and presentations by DI staffers pretending to be promoting real science instead of pseudo-scientific nonsense. Fortunately, SMU faculty aren’t letting them get away with it.
Dr. John G. Wise of SMU’s department of biological sciences has published a website that critiques the DI’s arguments: “Big Problems with Intelligent Design.” The website is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to learn the truth about the arguments of fanatics trying to hijack science to push an ideological agenda.
