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.
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.
