Intelligent design news and discussion for the month of June, 2011.
I thought it would be best to wait until a month had passed to start doing TWiID again, mainly because:
I think whole anthropochronological divisions are beautiful, in a rather frivolous way, and Not many overtly, over-the-top exciting ID things happened in June that warranted immediate attention by my loosely serious writings.
As such, this will be a slight departure from the usual TWiID style you might be used to. Instead of going into detail on only three or [...]

EDIT: It appears the post has been restored on the site. So I guess this means Egnor isn’t ashamed about it at all? Somehow that just makes it worse.
I said I wouldn’t go into the detail of what Michael Egnor writes about over on Egnorance, his new blog, but I couldn’t pass this up.
My feed reader recently saved a post by Egnor entitled “Closing arguments in trial of Florida woman for abortion of post-term fetus”, a satirical piece likening abortion to [...]

The Novellatron – the skeptical, alien-made robot also known as Dr. Steven Novella – has many detractors in the worlds of pseudoscience and antiscience, but none that I would call his nemesis: other than perhaps that of Dr. Michael Egnor, conservative Catholic neurosurgeon and ID proponent. Hmm, then again, maybe “nemesis” is too strong [...]

Intelligent design news from the 16th of March to the 22nd of March, 2011.
So, another week of intelligent design! The Discovery Institute was fairly quiet this week, with only five posts published on Evolution News & Views, a below average result, but quite a bit of it was pure gold. Well, for me, anyway. The fact that I do this every week means that I must be getting some entertainment out of it, right? I hope so – I don’t see myself as the masochistic type…
But anyway, this week’s [...]

Intelligent design news from the 20th of October to the 26th of October, 2010.
It’s slim pickings tonight on the ID front – for some reason the Discovery Institute and friends decided to only post whimsical complaints about minor issues this week, without making any outlandish claims. Well, less outlandish claims than usual – if none were made you might not be reading a blog post right now and I certainly wouldn’t be writing one.
Because this is going to a shorter, less intense TWiID than usual, I’ll be testing [...]

Atheism is the lack of a belief in God – end of story.
Oh, you want to know why I wrote that? Michael Egnor, on Evolution News & Views (which is strange, since it’s the Discovery Institute’s main blog, the one they would rather keep from being spoiled by matters of religion), asked “What Do New Atheists Actually Believe?” In the post he challenges the New Atheists to answer a list of eight questions:
1) Why is there anything? 2) What caused the Universe? 3) Why is [...]
