ID-advocate Michael Behe caught in own illogical, scientifically discredited trap."Scientists, universities, even nations are finally having the courage and resolve to expel biased anti-knowledge delusions and delusionists.

"Baylor was involved in asking for the grant that brought Dembski back, but when his return was made known to the administration, Baylor returned the grant, effectively terminating his position.

The administration said it was initially unaware of Dembski's inclusion in the grant proposal because the proposal did not go through the proper academic channels. In documents obtained by The Baylor Lariat, Marks claimed otherwise but also called his collaboration with Dembski "stealth until others made it visible."

Marks became involved in another academic controversy this fall when his Web site containing research related to intelligent design was removed from Baylor's server."
The battle between science and creationism has reached the prestigious Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where a creationist researcher refused to conduct work on "evolutionary aspects" of a grant for which he was hired.

"I am so amused. A creationist lost his job at Woods Hole, and he was a zebrafish developmental biologist. The creationist, Nathaniel Abraham, briefly held a post-doctoral position under Mark Hahn at Woods Hole."" PZ Myers, developmental biologist
The project had clearly required scientists to use the principles of evolution in their analyses and writing, so Nathaniel Abraham had obtained the research position through false pretenses. Abraham's supervisor asked him to resign, pointing out that Abraham "should have known of evolution's centrality to the project because it was evident from the job advertisement and grant proposal." Abraham, who completed graduate training at Catholic St John's University, now works at Liberty University, a Christian university founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell, in Lynchburg, Va..

The Department of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University have posted an anti-IDiocy disclaimer on their official website:

"The department faculty, then, are unequivocal in their support of evolutionary theory, which has its roots in the seminal work of Charles Darwin and has been supported by findings accumulated over 140 years. The sole dissenter from this
position, Prof. Michael Behe, is a well-known proponent of "intelligent design." While we respect Prof. Behe's right to express his views, they are his alone and are in no way endorsed by the department. It is our collective position that intelligent design has no basis in science, has not been tested experimentally, and should not be regarded as scientific."
So-called Discovery Institute fights a campaign for creationist pseudoscience in fancy disguise.If these biased individuals could not find work at Christian colleges with low academic standards, they could always take refuge at the so-called Discovery Institute and devote themselves full-time to anti-science polemics. After all, it does not matter to the Anti-Discovery Institute whether or not its Fellows know any science.

Just to demonstrate how dishonest these people are, this is a talk given by Dembski in which he misrepresents the material in a plagiarized video. Apparently, they tried to pass this material off as supporting ID in their ridiculous, box-office flop.

creationism, intelligent design, religion, science, Nathaniel Abraham, Michael Behe,
William Dembski.
