The Fear of Thinking

An article in the Case Western Reserve Observer by guest columnist Batool Akhtar-Zaidi reports on a recent talk there by intelligent design activist Michael Behe.

After reporting on Behe's talk and responses from the audience, the reporter gets right to the heart of the matter:
The posters advertising Behe's presentation asked us to think. But the content of Behe's defense of ID suggests that it is not about thinking at all. It's about a fear of thinking, about a desperate desire for gaps in knowledge as a place for God. Behe's approach betrays a desire for ignorance. The scientific approach involves work, experimenting, surviving peer review, and cumulative intellectual progress.
