Medical Professor Takes Heat for Questionning Darwin

John Marshall, a professor of internal medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia made a case for the scientific acceptance of intelligent design and argued that scientists were trying to kick intelligent design "off the playing field of science."

Many colleagues of Marshall are upset and have been criticizing him for his comments but some are supportive. As chemist and colleague Tim Spurgeon said, "I think that if we simply say that we're going to only look at what's in the box of only what can be natural, and yet there's this big white elephant in the room that no one's willing to touch … I think we're fooling ourselves."
