Intelligent Design: A Blind Alley
IslamOnline.net just ran my article “Intelligent Design: A Blind Alley,” which asks Muslims to reconsider widepread Islamic sympathy toward creationism and intelligent design.
Mind you, it’s a bit of a fruitless task. My article appears as one in a series on the debate among Muslims concerning creation and evolution, and the creationist contributions are more numerous and more popular. Notably, it’s hard to get believing Muslims to contribute the pro-evolution material.
Oh, and take a look at the comments at the end of my article. Gives you an idea about what those of us speaking up for science in the Muslim world are up against.
