Intelligent design requires evidence: Ah, but what can be considered evidence?: « In the research for the neuroscience book for which I am Montreal neuroscientist Mario Beauregard’s co-author (The Spiritual Brain, Harper, March 2007), I found that really inane and unsatisfactory explanations for various mental states were preferred if they supported the materialist paradigm, over against better explanations that didn’t particularly support it. Sometimes it was ludicrous. But always it was deadly serious. »
Who is saying so ? Denyse O’Leary, a well known pro-ID journalist.
Do I recall correctly that Beauregard’s research was founded by the Templeton Foundation ?
