Traipsing Into Evolution

The Washington DC Examiner published a full page article interviewing Dr. John West, Ph.D. and Casey Luskin, two of the authors of Traipsing Into Evolution: Intelligent Design and the Kitzmiller v. Dover Decision. In the interview, West made an excellent point when he said:

"Judge Jones’ rejection of intelligent design sprang from his willingness to go beyond the facts of the case and attempt to decide an important scientific debate by judicial decree. Unfortunately, in his zeal to decide the validity of intelligent design for everyone else, Judge Jones ended up attacking a straw man. As we document in our book, his opinion is filled with distortions and basic errors of fact. For example, he asserts that intelligent design scientists don’t published peer-reviewed scholarship, which is patently false."

The article can be read in its entirety here. The book, Traipsing Into Evolution is an excellent evaluation of the Dover trial and can be purchased at Amazon.com or by calling 1-800-643-4102.

Hi, Sam!

I'm hoping we can get in touch, perhaps via Yahoo or AOL IM...

I'd like to plan with you to get a feel of which direction we should go. As you know, it looks like we have some motivated people who would love to get involved... perhaps that can be channeled where it's needed!

Mr. Chen,

I see your areas of study lie outside of the natural sciences. I doubt you have a sufficient understanding of Evolutionary Biology. I suspect that your thing against evolution is motivated solely by your religion. You will probably deny it, but we all know that is the case with everyone who supports Intelligent Design.

As a Pennsylvanian, and as an Asian-American in the scientific community, I must say you are an utter disgrace. I suggest you reform yourself.

Sincerely,
The Darwinian Disciple
