With new developments in the Pennsylvania Intelligent Design trial I thought SM readers might want to rise above the hue and cry of contemporary debate to a more lofty, philosophical plane. Martin Roth, a philosophy professor at Knox College, has recently “taught a course on Intelligent Design”:http://www.knox.edu/x11236.xml which is remarkably well-balanced and thorough. Of course I may be biased because I went to high school with Martin, but I think this syllabus will be of interest to any academic who is interested in the Intelligent Design debate. Savage Minds has “the syllabus available for free download”:/wp-content/image-upload/RothIntelligentDesignSyllabus.doc. Check it out.
