David Klinghoffer of the Discovery Institute has some words of advice to BioLogos. I admit that I am not familiar enough with the recent history of BioLogos to know how fair his criticisms are. But his article did remind me of the old saying about people in glass houses.
I half way agree with you, but I don’t think they deserve full retractions, just amendments, with the exception of Specified Complexity. I wish Specified Complexity would just go away as far as its association with ID.
Otherwise, I like pretty much everything you wrote.
While the DI promotes creationism in the guise of “Intelligent Design”
Nah, real Henry Morris-Duane-Gish style creationism involves Noah’s Flood.
ID isn’t real creationism. Why settle for an imitation when one can get the real thing!
Rather than litigating specific issues, I’d like to know what policies and standards the Discovery Institute uses to manage errors.
That’s easy: They never make any errors. Oh, well there was that one time where they mislabeled part of a diagram illustrating the degree of similarity between the human and chimp genomes. But other than that…
The profoundly sad thing is that their article is largely on point in a critique of a major organization tasked with representing mainstream science.
