Freshwater: It is finished

Panda's Thumb - Mon, 2014-10-06 16:11
The Supreme Court of the U.S. today denied John Freshwater’s request (PDF) for a writ of certiorari. In other words, the Court declined to hear his case. After a legal saga that spanned more than six years and involved a two year long administrative hearing, a Court of Common Pleas review, an appeal to the state Court of Appeals, and an appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court, we are finally done. After an administrative hearing... Richard B. Hoppe

Panda's Thumb - Sat, 2014-10-04 19:22
On August 14, William Dembski spoke at the Computations in Science Seminar at the University of Chicago. Was this a sign that Dembski’s arguments for intelligent design were being taken seriously by computational scientists? Did he present new evidence? There was no new evidence, and the invitation seems to have come from Dembski’s Ph.D. advisor Leo Kadanoff. I wasn’t present, and you probably weren’t either, but fortunately we can all view the seminar, as a... Joe Felsenstein

I had posted a couple of comments in the following thread, and I’d rather those didn’t get lost, as Google seems not to take note of or index comments […]
