Kansas, ID, and Richard Smalley

As it has been widely reported, the Kansas Board of Education ruled 6-4 in favor of presenting Intelligent Design along side the theory of evolution. While the ruling will not take effect until 2008, this is a positive step in the right direction. I expect other boards in other states to follow suit. Along those lines, I was perusing William Dembski's blog and noticed that Richard Smalley died. Dembski recalls his lunch meeting with Smalley and the predictions he made about ID. Dembski shares, "Rick’s prediction at the end of his life was that ID would be mainstreamed in five years and that evolution in its conventional materialistic sense would be dead within ten. It will be interesting to see if his predictions are borne out." Wow! Coming from someone so experienced in the fields of nanotechnology and contributed so much to science, this is saying something. I also recall a former prominent atheist who has renounced his atheism having largely been influenced by the plausibility of ID. One only has to see with such vehemence and insolent attacks the opponents of ID are making out of fear and intimidation. They know they are being pinned both intellectually and culturally, and more desperate attempts and baseless charges with result from the further success of ID. Let us be informed and engaged in this important matter.
