American mathematician living in Paris on Europe’s anti-ID resolution ...

Here’s a podcast of mathematician and novelist David Berlinski, who lives in Paris, on the Council of Europe’s decision to ban the teaching of ID or creationism from the classroom. Berlinski’s own views of intelligent design are somewhat nuanced, as these self-interviews show, though his view of the Darwinist shock troops is not:
entirely low-market; the men who contribute to the blog all have some vague technical background - computer sales, sound mixing, low-level programming, print-shops or copy centers; they are semi-literate; their posts convey that characteristic combination of pustules and gonorrhea that one would otherwise associate with high-school toughs.

And here are links to some of his beautifully written essays.
