wow. i like the way they try to weed out the unfaithful, without linking ID to the faithful.

I was at UCSD as a grad student in 1999 when the first IDEA club started (see the history of the IDEA clubs here). At the time, it was advertised in the student newspaper as a place to just come, chill out, and have discussions about evolution and intelligent design. They initially tried to sell it as being a forum unbiased toward or against "either theory." This, of course, made their biases obvious.It was fun, as they had all the big creationist names there to speak: Dembski, Wells, Johnson (though I think officially it was Johnson's visit that inspired them to form the group), and Behe. They all got pulverized in the Q&A. Those lectures really brought out the kooks from the San Diego area. Lots of very confident people who knew no science. Typical of the ID creationist, I think.

I've been sticking up for Darwin for as long as I can remember. I coined the terms "agnostic," "biogenesis," and "abiogenesis." Impressive, no?
