ID likely to prevail, opponents agree.
This week seems to be a real bonanza for ID TV:
Last night (May 9, 2005) ABC News Nightline, hosted by George Stephanopoulos, featured William Dembski vs. Michael Ruse on the Kansas science standards hearings—but really about intelligent design theory in general. Interestingly, both Ruse and Dembski think that ID will prevail over time. That makes sense to me; most of the world does not accept naturalism, so forcing it on the public will not likely succeed, but See the show, and decide for yourself.
Also note Steve Meyer debating Eugenie Scott of the Darwin lobby. Meyer, remember, was the author of the ID-friendly article in the Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington, on account of which his editor had to ask for protection from the Office of Special Counsel of the United States government. Ironically, Sternberg was not even a supporter of intelligent design, particularly. Meyer and Sternberg have both been the subjects of numerous obsessive attacks by Darwinists. I won’t be surprised if a few are posted as comments here.
