Jonathan Wells - It's got nothing to do with Religion
I once read somewhere that people from the Discovery Institute are saying that "Darwinists have now started attacking Mr. Well's religion". They say this, of course, in the context that we are just attacking his religion and not his arguments (which I am unable to as I am unintelligible of science though I am reading Richard Dawkins' "The Greatest Show on Earth). But, even though I can't attack his arguments, I find that I cannot trust the man because of his obvious bias.
We all know the quote. He went for a second Ph.D because Reverend Moon urged him to and he wanted to destroy Darwinism. He hated Darwin evolutionary theory from the very start, so we are pretty right to have reasons to doubt his stories. I know that PZ Myers has exposed some of his quote mines and many people declared that Wells had misrepresented them in his book, Icons of Evolution. He now, pretty clearly, believes that there is a conspiracy going on in the scientific community to keep evolution in the classroom. I think it's pretty clear, though, that his claims are the result of him desperately wanting there to be a conspiracy. The reason I don't take him seriously is not because he's a "Moonie", but because of his motives.
We should use this thread here to critically analysis the claims that he makes...
Our job on this Earth, is to take care of each other. Something that we have ultimately failed at doing, hence why we are so miserable.
