Intelligent Vonnegut

This is not an Intelligent design blog, but as art exists within culture and science is a part of culture, it seems that there is very little that I could talk about here that would be truly off topic. In one of the most interesting twists of reality that I have been witness to, in an NPR interview Kurt Vonnegut has spoken in support of ID, at least as a topic for discussion in the classroom. Check out Intelligent Design the Future's blog on the interview from NPR. Even if you don't believe in a Biblical conception of creation, the censorship that has been going on against anyone related to ID should be absurdly frightening to you, that is assuming that you care about critical thinking, reason, and independent thought. For an introduction to some problems in evolutionary theory, check out my friends project.

On a side note, this blog has been getting quite a few new readers. The month of January has brought the most hits to this site since its conception! So if you're new, thanks for stopping by, please comment and come back for more!

I found your blog via the Worldview Academy forum (I'm an alumni and serve on staff in the summer).
It is very interesting how science has fallen behind popular culture. It use to be the leader, now it's regarded as merely another "tribe" among many.
I'm a philosophy major at Hillsdale College and I'm currently in a philosopy of science class where our focus is on the ID debate, so I found the second link very interesting as well.
