Twilight of the IDiots

The Collapse of Discovery's ID Frame

An important post over at Red State Rabble about the collapse of the ID/Creationist movement. I don't know if I'd be that optimistic. I think there's still some fight in these rascals yet, but some very good points are made:

...In an attempt to keep their "evolution is incompatible with Christianity" frame alive, Evolution News and Views was reduced to hyping a letter to The Yale Daily News urging churches not to participate in Evolution Sunday by Moonie Jonathan Wells.

That the Discovery Institute was forced to rely on a member of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church -- who believes that that Jesus was not put on earth to die, and that the "Lord of the Second Coming" must be a man born in Korea -- to counter the message sent to people of faith by Evolution Sunday, may also help to account for the increasingly frantic tone there...

Evolution Sunday/Darwin Day was a big success, in spite of much-hyped countermeasures by ID proponents.
