If the universe was designed, it does not follow that your grandmother's superstitions are true
Physicist Bradley Monton, an atheist philosopher of science (University of Colorado Boulder), doesn't seem to mind being in trouble here and here as he looks at the reasons why the universe might show evidence of design. Hey, Bradley.
It's that "life of the mind" thing, right? Don't expect yur local political correctness commissar to understand.
Monton teamed up with another skeptic of religion, mathematician David Berlinski, against materialist atheist Lawrence Krauss and Brit God-hollerer Denis Alexander, to defend the design of the universe as an intellectually worthy idea (not just some religious schtick). Here's more on the debate.
Good for Monton and Berlinski, for clearing sludge out of the way and shame on God-hollerers who maintain it for their own ends.
