ID on Paula Zahn Now

[From a colleague:] Last night CNN devoted almost 45 minutes to the ID controversy. CNN’s Religion and Values correspondent Delia Gallagher did the segment on Paula Zahn Now. Most of the show consisted of the usual spin, but Mike Behe got lots of air time and came across well. My favorite part came after interviews with his Lehigh University colleagues made it clear that he was in hot water there, and Mike was asked whether he felt ostracized. He burst into a jovial belly-laugh and said “Sure.” He asked what the point would be in arguing for something everyone already agreed with, and he explained that the history of science is filled with controversies like this. The other highlight of the show for me was the one-on-one between Steve Meyer and Eugenie Scott. I know I’m biased, but Steve came across as much more intelligent, much more confident, and in a much better mood. It was clear from Mike’s and Steve’s performances that despite the hostility from the Darwinists, IDers are having more fun.
