Dr. William Dembski, with PhD’s in both mathematics and philosophy, is one of the foremost spokesmen for Intelligent Design. (He recently joined the faculty at Southern Seminary as part of the division in which I’m doing by PhD.) I’ve written about ID before but, briefly, it is a movement that seeks to challenge Darwinian evolution (macro-evolution and related issues of origins) on scientific terms.
Anyway, I just wanted to mention briefly that Dr. Dembski is scheduled to appear this Monday on Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Now, obviously this won’t be a forum for serious, technical, substantive discussion of the issues. In fact they will probably try to play him for a fool. I’m confident he’ll do a good job, though, and am hopeful that he may at least be able to get a few people thinking about these important issues.
