Interesting bet on Intelligent Design
Bob Murphy over at the Discovery Institute makes
this interesting prediction:
…I make the following, falsifiable prediction: Within ten years, there will be a journal dedicated to Intelligent Design, publishing articles in not only biochemistry but geology, mathematics, and physics. Outsiders may scoff at the pseudoscience hoodwinking the nation’s
faithful, but it will be a journal with referees. At that point, the tremendous significance attached to “ID has no peer-reviewed research” will fade away, to be replaced with, “ID articles are only published in an incestuous network of 33 PhDs who all happen to be churchgoers.”
Its fascinating watching these arguments play out.
