Ken Miller: Intelligent Design

Posted in Mad Scientist, Policy tagged , , , , , , at 4:38 am by D. Borst

In the below video, (its about 2 hours 70 minutes long, with 50 minutes of questions) Ken Miller of Brown University shows the intellectual pitfalls that are faced by Intelligent Design. It was originally posted 2 years ago, but his points are no less important today than they were then. If you have ever found yourself mystified at how to intelligently and coherently respond to ID advocates, then take a look at this video. Ken Miller nicely skirts the line between respecting those who believe in God yet still maintaining scientific rigor. If you have a spare 2 hours, check it out. It is good.

EDIT: The talk is actually about 70 minutes, with 50 minutes of questions afterwards for 2 hours.

    Ken Miller is a good teacher – keeps you engaged – but he’s a bit too full of himself. But I suppose thats alright. Just sayin’. Hello! ~Becky
