Jack Sisson's Life Ethics Blog

We must find new ways through many ethical issues, especially regarding bioethics, medical ethics, and criminal justice. Jack Sisson's 'Life Ethics' blog focuses on numerous areas of concern, including the philosophical and ethical dilemmas surrounding stem-cell research, abortion, medical research, and health care.

Earlier this week I was playing some poker. A couple of our usuals couldn't make it so we invited a couple subs. One was a marine biologist. He was a terrificially smart guy and had a boatload of great stories. Once the game was over (I lost) and we were just sitting around having some beers the topic turned a little less focused.

Jimmy (the guy in question) is a liberal. A big liberal. Being the token Conservative I had take issue with one of his main points. Our chat went something like this:
Jimmy: And that's why there can't be intelligent design.
Mike: Oh really.
Jimmy: Yeah, look it up.
Mike: Fine.

What was Jimmy's main point? Intelligent design will never, EVER hold water in scientific circles until a case is made in a peer-reviewed journal. I spend a good part of my day online so I figured that he was just ignorant to the many journals out there. Turns out he's right. No article on intelligent design has ever been accepted via a peer-reviewed science journal. Ouch.

Good thing I have the old stand-by: That's why they call it faith. Whew.
