Intelligent Design (New York Times Op-Ed)

In a somewhat unusual development the New York Times publishes an op-ed, Design for Living, by Michael Behe, a professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University.

NYT Abstract: "The theory of intelligent design, though not creationist, differs in key points with pure Darwinian evolution".

Michael Behe is one of the leading advocates of the theory of intelligent design. The New York Times usually pushes the "party line" that evolution by natural selection is the Only True Theory, and that any deviation from it in the classroom is the plot of religious fundamentalists against separation between church and state.

In reality, the question is quite open, so this departure from Bolshevist practices of journalism is refreshing.
