Intelligent Design makes a testable prediction …

As pointed out in numerous blogs  and at least one Wikipedia editor’s user page, the clock is running out on this dire prediction from the éminence grise of ID:

“In the next five years, molecular Darwinism—the idea that Darwinian processes can produce complex molecular structures at the subcellular level—will be dead.”

William Dembski, Touchstone magazine, July/Aug 2004

I guess we’ve got a month or so before the whole evolutionary house of cards collapses.  Of course, the fact that Google Scholar gives 579,000 hits since 2004 for “molecular evolution” suggests that Dembski might turn out to be wrong.  I’m holding my breath.

    No mention (to say nothing of discussion) of the note left on your Wiki profile? I am vastly interested in how you would defend your implicit support of the relativity of knowledge while holding a University post.

    Ah, c’mon now Allen, censorship is just cowardice thinly veiled . . .

    Whoever you are, if you want to have a discussion, post on my Wiki discussion page. It´s just rude to edit someone else´s Wiki profile page. And if you really want discussion, why not address me with some kind of continuous identity? It´s not possible to have a conversation with an IP address. Or a fake email address. If you want to bring up courage, it starts with declaring your identity.
