Burden of evidence shifting to ID?
The New York Times published its story on the Kitzmiller v. Dover decision late yesterday, much later than many other news outlets (link: "Judge Rejects Teaching Intelligent Design"). It includes a gem that I did not see elsewhere.
Reporter Laurie Goodstein quotes William A. Dembski (a fellow of the Discovery Instutute, Executive Director of the International Society for Complexity, Information, and Design): "I think the big lesson [from Judge Jones' decision] is, let's go to work and really develop this theory and not try to win this in the court of public opinion," Dr. Dembski said. "The burden is on us to produce."
My question: When was it ever otherwise?
