For Whom the Bell Tolls

Writing in the New York Times "Week in Review," yesterday, Laurie Goodstein observes that, "intelligent design as a field of inquiry is failing to gain the traction its supporters had hoped for. It has gained little support among the academics who should have been its natural allies. And if the intelligent design proponents lose the case in Dover, there could be serious consequences for the movement's credibility.

"On college campuses, the movement's theorists are academic pariahs, publicly denounced by their own colleagues. Design proponents have published few papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals."

Not to toot our own horn -- well, maybe just a little -- but we wrote much the same thing back in July when we took a look at "What ID and New Coke Have in Common."
