I was really surprised to discover this year that a widely respected paleontologist who specializes in dragonfly and damselfly fossils is associated with the Discovery Institute. Several of my colleagues, including some who co-authored papers with him, were also shocked to find out that he rejects Darwinism and believes in ID.

I am unsure if this has noticeably influenced his research.

Re: Creation Science vs Regular Science
isn't there only really one way to do science whether one is a believer or not?

That does seem to be the case, and it is why we do not see research papers that confirm ID. If the Scientific Method is used correctly it never leads to conclusions that involve the supernatural because there is no known way to test things outside of nature.

My understanding about the Discovery Institute is that people associated with it have to sign some sort of declaration that belief in the bible overrides scientific results, or something similar.
