Google Alerts popped up with use of my name elsewhere in a comment about freeing “intelligent design” from the “Wedge” strategy in a “Post-Wedge world”.
I don’t think that there is a “Post-Wedge world”. As long as the same old tired, bogus antievolution arguments get used to diminish evolutionary science, the “Wedge” is still in effect. What name gets used as the rhetorical thin edge of the “Wedge” may change, but the content remains the same.
Just thought that I would clear that up.
Which makes the following bit:
As Elsberry explains, ID can no longer be the leading edge of the “wedge.” Thus, objective and reasonable people can no longer view those of us who are interested in ID, and how it relates to biology and evolution, as being part of “the wedge.”
a complete non sequitur. People are using the “Wedge” as long as they continue to promote the same old tired, bogus antievolution arguments. The high-profile IDC advocates are still all “Wedging” just as they were before. They just don’t use the same label for it anymore.
