Why people laugh at ID proponents

by Neil Rickert

Just take a look at a recent post at Uncommon Descent: Why people laugh at Creationists but have a harder time refuting ID-ists.

The discussion to that thread (the comments) provides plenty of reasons to laugh.

    “Perhaps Sal could amend it to read “Why people laugh at *some* Creationists …”

    But don’t you see, *we creationists* [emphasis added] suffer as a group by the misdeeds of a few. We all are being laughed in part because of Hovind. We can’t always stop the behavior of others, but it is distressing that Hovind, like Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, kept getting away with what he was doing. Now like Jim Bakker, he’s now in jail.

    But this can be corrected not by policing people, but by teaching real science to creationists so that people like Hovind won’t have such a large audience….

      I’ll at least give Sal credit for trying to toe the line that ID is science and not religion. But it didn’t take long for other ID proponents to step in and remind him that it really is religion.

      But this can be corrected not by policing people, but by teaching real science to creationists so that people like Hovind won’t have such a large audience.

      So true.
