From the first piece linked above:
A curious feature of most of the recent media coverage and commentary on intelligent design, is how insubstantial it is. Rarely do critics feel the need even to give an accurate definition of ID, let alone provide evidence that they've ever read anything written by an ID theorist. In fact, they seem unaware that they're substituting venom, ad hominems, and bigotry for actual argument.
Robert McHenry's therapeutic rant at Tech Central Station is a nice example. Presumably he feels better for having written it. He's the Former Editor in Chief of the Encyclopædia Britannica, and author of a book called How to Know. So presumably the guy is smart. And yet he seems to know nothing about ID except the prejudices he started with.
Anyone with superficial exposure to the ID literature, whether an ID sympathizer or critic, can evaluate McHenry's critique without help from me. Responses like his suggest that we're onto something. When critics have real arguments, they use them. When they don't, they sneer.
