Here's the flagship journal of the wonderful new science of intelligent design. When it was launched in 2010 the Discovery Institute described it as "set to accelerate the pace and heighten the tone of the debate over intelligent design". In 2017 they've managed to produce two articles. Hooray! What a dizzyingly accelerated pace!

2018 will mark the twentieth anniversary of the Wedge Document. Here are their twenty-year goals:

* To see intelligent design theory as the dominant perspective in science.
* To see design theory application in specific fields, including molecular biology, biochemistry, paleontology, physics and cosmology in the natural sciences, psychology, ethics, politics, theology and philosophy in the humanities; to see its influence in the fine arts.
* To see design theory permeate our religious, cultural, moral and political life.

Good luck with that, boys.

Seems puzzling why they care so much that intelligent design should be the dominant perspective in science. Unless...they have an agenda!


Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul

I don't think they understand their own agenda. Achieving it would put us back to the Stone Age.

That is their ideal scenario, everyone as dumb as rocks and a few smartasses running the show because magic men in the sky told them they should.


Christianity, One woman's lie about an affair that got seriously out of hand

What are the Christians gonna do to me ..... Forgive me, good luck with that.

Rosa Parks They Are Not
For a long time now we have been told by ID/creationists how they have been persecuted and prevented from publishing their research in scientific journals.

Now they have a journal that will publish damn near anything they want to, and millions of dollars at the Discovery Institute to fund research. What do we get? Bupkus.

On the best of days, all they are capable of doing is falsely criticizing the scientific work done by others.
