On today’s episode of ID the Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin interviews Mario Lopez, co-founder of Ciencia Alternativa. Ciencia Alternativa is a website devoted to expanding intelligent design’s reach within the Spanish-speaking community. Lopez explains how he first became involved in ID, and describes the history and operations of Ciencia Alternativa. He also talks about some of his associates at Ciencia Alternativa and the harsh opposition they face from parts of the scientific community. According to Lopez, this opposition can be so severe that his associates must conduct ID-related work incognito to avoid endangering their reputations and employment elsewhere.
