Why does lying about the events disprove design????? It doesn't matter if Sternberg lied. It doesn't matter if Meyer's article didn't belong there. What matters is the information in that article and you people need to refute that content. Where is your common sense?
It doesn't. However you brought up the paper and it was criticized by Wounded King as being a paper that merely said he wasn't convinced by evolution and instead he was convinced by theories that didn't have any support in peer reviewed literature.
You hypothesized that "Most everyone would fear negative reprocussions for publishing an ID article in a journal like that one. " because of the consequences he faced. If you concede that he didn't have to face any consequences then you have to wonder why so few papers have come out providing evidence for intelligent design (since fear of reprisal seems unfounded).
There is an open thread about the paper, Meyer's Hopeless Monster which might be a good place to discuss its actual merits in further detail.
