Edward J. Larson is a historian of law, science and medicine at the University of Georgia. His book, "Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion," won the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1998.
I could never hope to win a Pulitzer Prize. Dr. Johnson is a much brighter man than I, but can be added to the list of people who make foolish mistakes when it come to the debate.
He insists that intelligent design is not science, because it does not seek testable, repeatable — and therefore exploitable — explanations. Can the biological history on planet earth be repeatable, in experiment after experiment? My point is, Darwinism is a result of the scientific philosophy of methodological naturalism (MN). It's a narrow approach, intending to find the right kind of "truth", which may miss the true truth about origins of the cosmos and life.
Dr. Edwards is a brilliant man, with blinders on.

We hope this blog will provide a small voice that helps rectify this situation.
