I tried to resist going along with the crowd and even now feel a bit dirty, but, hey, if it’s good enough for Bora, Skeptico, PZ, and many others, it’s probably good enough for me. I agree: Teach the controversy!

In any case, my challenge remains to Dr. Egnor to explain how the design inference (of “intelligent design”) has been “of great value” to medicine and medical research, complete with specific examples.

Not that I expect he’ll ever answer the question, or even attempt to. He can’t, because ID hasn’t helped medicine in the least.

Instead of responding, all Dr. Egnor’s done is rehash one of the most mind-blowingly dumb things he’s said about bacterial resistance to antibiotics in an even more mind-blowingly idiotic manner, which MIke handled so that I don’t have to. And, of course, several of the links above demolish Dr. Egnor’s pontifications on not just bacterial resistance to antibiotics but to his other “egnorant” statements about evolution.
