Ken Miller on Intelligent Design

Ken Miller, a cell biologist at Brown University, gave a (roughly hour long) talk at Case Western University in January on his involvement in the Dover PA trial on the teaching of Intelligent Design in American public schools. The talk is accessible, intelligent and interesting. Dr. Miller is an excellent speaker and if you can hang-in there until the Q&A at the end, he'll make an somewhat scary connection between the former dominance of the Islamic world (the Caliphate) in scientific progress and its subsequent trend toward non-rational theocratic thinking, and the position of the United States (and perhaps all of Western civilization) relative to its own future.
