ID controversy at Baylor (revisited)

Mark Bergin reports in World about Dr. Robert Marks, his empirical and theoretical work in Informatics related to "Intelligent Design", and the continuing controversy/tension over having an ID presence at Baylor.

Fortunately, this situation seems to have resolved more favorably-- in both style and substance-- than the treatment Baylor's administration gave William Dembski in 2000. Faculty members will probably continue to oppose his work, but that's par for the course in academia. If one has administrative backing, then one can faithfully and productively exercise "academic freedom".
