Joel & I were both there; I heard something quite different, specifically,
that within a year the debate over whether (or not) theistic
science/intelligent design was a proper part of science would be settled.
To suggest that within a year all theistic evolutionists would be
"converted" seems to be an outrageous and wholly unbelievable claim; had he
made this claim, I'd think someone might have called him down on it.
I also heard Plantigna suggest, in his Thursday Veritas presentation, that
it was the COMBINATION
of naturalism & evolution that was the problem, not either one by itself,
and that, indeed, some sort of evolution might, indeed, be true.
