"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own." G.K.Chesterton

"You cannot grow a beard in a moment of passion." G.K.Chesterton

"As you perhaps know, I haven't always been a Christian. I didn't go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that."C. S. Lewis

Catch 22

This is how the game is played:

"ID is not science because it hasn't been published in peer-reviewed publications."

ID will not be published in peer reviewed publications because it is ideologically unacceptable.

Thus ID is not published in peer-reviewed publications.

Therefore ID is not science.

Game, set, match.

But what happens when an ID-friendly article IS suddenly published in a respected peer-reviewed publication?

The witch hunt begins.

Not only the author, but the editor, is abused, insulted, stigmatised, vilified, isolated, hounded and branded a heretic. David Klinghoffer investigates The Branding of a Heretic:Are religious scientists unwelcome at the Smithsonian?

"You are being singled out..."

How the fashionable fascism of the ruling scientific orthodoxy, fears politically-incorrect ideas, punishes dissenters and subverts freedom of expression.
