On the Medved Show Today, Stephen Meyer Will Discuss the Science that Dare Not Speak Its Name

Medved-Banner7.jpgIt's the science that dare not speak its name: intelligent design.

Ball State University in Indiana has issued a ban against scientists on the campus from speaking about the evidence for design in nature. A speech code, directed against a scientific idea? What's so threatening? Meanwhile Amarillo College in Texas recently canceled a course on intelligent design, citing fears that the class would be disrupted by atheist activists. After Casey Luskin's series of articles last month at ENV, readers will know what happened when pro-ID scientists tried to publish the proceedings of a conference at Cornell University, "Biological Information: New Perspectives."

What ever happened to academic freedom?

Today in the second hour of the Michael Medved Show, Discovery Institute philosopher of science and New York TImes bestselling author Stephen Meyer (Darwin's Doubt) will be talking with Mr. Medved about the liberty that scholars traditionally enjoyed to teach the truth as they see it, even when it comes to the science of animal and human origins. It's the Science & Culture Update, 1 pm Pacific time or 4 pm Eastern. Listen on the radio or online by going here. Join the conversation!
