Jim Holt deconstructs intelligent design

The New York Times published a rather nice deconstruction of intelligent design creationism by Jim Holt in its Sunday magazine. I wonder if the editors were feeling a bit foolish for giving Michael Behe a forum to defend intelligent design two weeks ago.


  1. thanks for the links - it's great to hold the two articles up to each other. sadly, the nyt editors probably are feeling less foolish and more pleased with themselves at giving equal space to opposing views. media outlets have a silly habit of trying to be fair and balanced by giving crackpot ideas equal time with ones based in science (see global warming 'debate').


  2. The global-warming debate? You mean the one over whether we need more nuclear power plants?
