The Non-Science of the Discovery Institute Arguments Against Evolution

The Discovery Institute (DI) isn’t impressed with what I’ve been writing for The Huffington Post.

On 3 April 2010, DI posted a piece on their website that claimed that “Michael Zimmerman ignores the science that challenges evolution.” Written by attorney Casey Luskin, the article was an attack on my essay saying that the evolution/creation controversy was not a battle between religion and science but between various religious perspectives.

Despite there being more fundamentalist ministers than you can shake a stick at who repeatedly claim that people must choose between religion and evolution, Luskin makes the preposterous argument that the “controversy” should be seen solely as a scientific one! Religion, he claims, has nothing to do with the ever-present attacks on evolution.
