A Statement Of Scientific Purity?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: ID The Future)

(Des Moines Register) Who says Iowa isn't on the cutting edge? As a national controversy rages over what's science and what's religion, a prominent proponent of Intelligent Design on the Iowa State University faculty is bringing the issue to a boil there.

One-hundred-nineteen faculty members, worried that a public institution specializing in science and technology will allow what amounts to religious belief to be taught as science, have signed a statement rejecting any efforts "to represent Intelligent Design as a scientific endeavor." It will be delivered Friday to university administrators.

ISU has good reason to worry, as a faculty member from their own ranks, Guillermo Gonzalez, is aggressively pushing for Intelligent Design on campus as he is attempting to find a student to pursue ID as a field of study. Gonzalez is not only an astronomy Professor at ISU but also a national leader within the movement itself. What is perplexing is that while many evolutionists claim that ID is not based upon science (meanwhile declaring that theirs is) they refuse to debate the issue in scientific terms with "the opposition?" Why is that?

(The Arizona Republic) But scientific method begins with a theory, which may be supported by evidence, and other scientists can repeat the evidence. [Tom] Teepen [(referring back to an earlier article he posted)] does not explain how the theory of evolution can be sustained by being able to repeat the evidence.

In effect, both intelligent design and evolutionary theory are based on faith, but are not mutually exclusive. (Source*)

If evolution is based on concrete facts then where are those facts? One thing heard by IDists/creationists/deists from atheists is that evolution is based upon the principles of science and is therefore indisputable. Instead of hearing out what "the opposition" has to say, they merely put up walls silence, refusing even to engage in the debate. If evolutionists refuse to examine the counter arguments of those who believe in a "higher intelligence," then they may find themselves in for a rude awakening when the public's questions about evolution go unanswered.

If evolution holds the truth then they should easily decimate the "ID Club" as they only represent a good 68% of America. So why not engage in a debate? What are evolutionists afraid of?
