On this episode of ID the Future we present a short clip of senior fellow Dr. Michael Behe at the Intelligent Design Under Fire conference where he talks about the acceptance of intelligent design based on misinformation and stereotypes as promoted by the media. He contrasts the current status of intelligent design with that of Big Bang theory in the beginning of the 20th century, when many scientists refused to accept Big Bang theory because they didn’t like the philosophical implications.

The full video of this conference, Intelligent Design Under Fire Experts Cross-Examine the Top Proponents of Intelligent Design Theory, is available from the Access Research Network here.
