Christians among the lions: Nelson v. Sarkar

Pandagon has a review of the debate between Paul Nelson of the Discovery Institute and Sahotra Sarkar on ID, this time in from of an academic audience. Nelson didn't go down well, and Sarkar, who has a book on the epistemology of ID coming out, basically put the political aspects of ID front and centre. I wish I'd been there. Another report is at The Ethical Werewolf.

Sarkar's book, which I have read in ms, is as good a philosophical treatment of ID as it deserves. Better really. Look out for it.
