Design and its future

Before I'm forced to retire from the net for a while I wanted to call
the attention of ASAers to the following article.

Titled: In A Darwinian World, What Chance For Design?

The points I like to make are as follows:

1) A reconsideration of design as a scientific paradigm is just
beginning. It may take 150 years to replace the darwinian paradigm.
This is going to be a very exciting development because it will be
science vs. science and not science vs. faith/religion/theology.

2) Notice how the article juxtaposes "design" and "naturalism" as
radically opposed views of total reality.

3) Notice that "design" is being "discussed" in a "secular"
publication. The first steps are being taken right under our noses,
baby steps......


4) Notice that according to the article the Darwinian orthodoxy
repudiates design absolutely, "random" design is sort of an oxymoron.

that's all for now
