I was privileged to have dinner with Jonathan Wells Ph.D, Bruce Gordon Ph.D, and Richard Sternberg Ph.D (one of the "expelled" scientists from Ben Stein's documentary) while I've been studying in Seattle. I'm having a great time! It’s like being at Disneyland for me (and without the annoying music).
I had dinner with these guys right after Richard Sternberg critiqued evolution's poster child, whale evolution. Sternberg has a Ph.D in molecular evolution and another Ph.D in systems science (theoretical biology) so I have to admit that some of it went over my head. But a lot of what we’re learning is meant to encourage young scientists at the conference to pursue rigorous scientific careers in intelligent design theory rather than teaching them every bit of scientific detail to every argument presented (But don't get me wrong, there's plenty of scientific detail being discussed here).
