Inaccurate Discussion: A Response to Scott LaFee's "Intelligent Discussion" (Union Tribune, June 8, 2005) [Intro Page]
The article only quoted scientists who were anti-ID. Many of the scientists quoted appeared to be unfamiliar with the actual primary literature of intelligent design theorists, and some of those quoted were honest enough to admit that they were not familiar with ID theory.
We at the IDEA Center enjoy dialoguing with evolutionists, and hope that when they speak publicly about intelligent design, they will do so after ensuring that they are well-informed about intelligent design. However, though the IDEA Center is based in the San Diego area and although we have a number of pro-ID scientists affiliated with our organization, no one from the Union Tribune contacted us requesting information for this article. They seemed to have invited no pro-ID individuals to participate in this article.
Since the article contained many inaccurate statements about intelligent design theory, we would like to take this opportunity to educate people about intelligent design theory. Below are 2 links with responses to the many inaccuracies in the article, by IDEA Center staff:
