Editor Explains Reasons for ‘Intelligent Design’ Article

About a year ago Evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg decided to publish a paper making the case for "intelligent design."  Almost immediately he came under severe attack.

Sternberg responded…

"They were saying I accepted money under the table, that I was a crypto-priest, that I was a sleeper cell operative for the creationists," said Steinberg, 42 , who is a Smithsonian research associate. "I was basically run out of there."

What is the Smithsonian so afraid of, intelligent debate?  Dissent from their religion of choice?

Below is a link to what I see as a pretty fair and balanced article on the issue.  To me, this sounds like a battle against Galileo.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
