Interesting items in the intelligent design controversy

I have been really busy due to book and family issues, but here are some items I never had a chance to write up:

1. Has Craig Venter produced artificial life?

2. Was Ardi the missing link?

3. A friend writes to remind me of "Hitler's Ethic: The Nazi Pursuit of Evolutionary Progress..., which I consider indispensable in understanding what happened in the 20th century, when ideas hatched in the 19th turned deadly. Darwinism had a lot to do with it, because it fomented the idea of treating people like animals.
