A Smart New Blogger

New to me, anyway. I've been reading his blog for about a week, and I am impressed. His latest post is quite good, and this other post has a brilliant bit:
I was just reading Alan Shlemon at Stand to Reason...where his post quotes William Dembski who catches atheistic scientists in an act of dogma:

In the New York Review of Books Lewontin confesses that evolutionists hold their view “because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism… [and] we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes…[to] produce material explanations no matter however counter-intuitive.... Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”

See? This is my whole beef with evolution vs. Intelligent Design...everybody has a bias. Not all biases are created equal however, and I'd say that an admittedly selfish bias is more suspect than a world view based on the words of Christ, "No greater love hath any man than to lay down his life for his friends."

One world view says I can have lots of hookers behind my wife's back without guilt, the other says I can't even look at a little porn. Which would be most likely invented to by "homo-erectus"?
