It's Intelligent Design Day
Over at Cosmic Variance, Sean writes about an interesting biology course taught at Central Washington University. Instead of just talking about facts that scientists have learned. The class tries to address what science is and how it is conducted. As part of this strategy, intelligent design and the problems with treating inteligent design as science are discussed.
I also read about this class at Pharyngula.org, but Sean had an interesting additional point. John Wells from the Discovery Institute was invited to make a presentation to the class. He arrived with a PR person who distributed DVDs. This is relevant to my last post that discusses how Intellignet Design is more PR than science.
