"Sheer Savagery"

Jonathan Witt has a post today at his blog on how irrationally evolutionists are responding to intelligent design. He links to an article by William Rusher of the Claremont Institute. Rusher writes:

"But one can't help being a little surprised at the sheer savagery of the evolutionists' attack on intelligent design — which has been duplicated in every other forum where the subject has been discussed....One can't help feeling that there is something more than a scientific dispute going on here. The evolutionists are not acting like scientists confronting an interesting new theory. They are acting, to be frank about it, as if they are scared out of their wits — as if this particular theory threatens to do fatal damage to their whole concept of the cosmos. And, in fact, it does."
