I started blogging end of March 2005, beginning at www.idthefuture.com and now with my blog, Uncommon Descent (I intend to do a lot of cross-posting). Since I’d like Uncommon Descent to provide a complete record of my blogging activity, I include here my prior posts at IDthefuture that have thus far not been cited here:
Open Letter to Robert Holub. Holub, a dean at UCal Berkeley, had written that ID is a blight on our intellectual landscape.
The Truth about How I Got into ID. An April Fools account of how I got into ID of which at least 65% is actually true. For a non-April-Fools account of what got me started in ID, look at the opening section of my chapter in Debating Design (Cambridge, 2004), a volume I edited with Michael Ruse.
Is ID Science? — Three Things to Keep In Mind. The preamble to an expert witness report in an upcoming trial regarding the teaching of ID.
Dennett & Leiter’s Center for Naturalism. Once naturalism requires a center, it’s dead in the water. It can only live so long as people regard it as natural as the air we breathe (pun intended).
ID and the Charge of Creationism. Makes clear the distinction between ID and creationism.
Overwhelming Evidence — Quantity vs. Quality of Evidence. A distinction prompted in discussion with the head of Texas A&M’s biology department, Vince Cassone.
Richard Smalley on Evolution. Richard Smalley, a Nobel laureate in Chemistry at Rice University, had some hardhitting remarks about evolution at Tuskegee University upon his receiving an honorary doctorate.
In addition to these posts, there were also a few about my debate with Lee Silver at Princeton as well as about Robert Laughlin’s sharp remarks about natural selection in his latest book, A Different Universe. But these have been linked to in previous posts at Uncommon Descent.
