It has been awhile since I have delved into the ideas coming out of the Discovery Institute’s Evolution News and Views blog. When I visited it last night, I was shocked bemused at how much the focus of the blog was on global warming. I decided to count how many articles were focused on global warming (which has absolutely nothing to do with evolution). I came up with this little chart of the blog’s topics:
The chart is very telling on the state of affairs of the Intelligent Design (ID) movement. First, there is not one single post showing any evidence for ID. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but it is always nice to point out. Second, most of the posts were focused on something that is not even related to evolution or ID: global warming. Together with the prevalence of the immorality of believing in evolution, I think it is clear that the ID movement is more political / philosophical than it is focused on science and the determination of reality. Just another reason why the whole idea is pseudoscience.
