Failed Prophecies: An ID Anniversary

The anniversary of some specific predictions by IDist William Dembski has arrived, and Kristine, the Amused Muse, has reminded us that Dembski predicted in 2006 that within 10 years the theory of evolution will be dead. We’re four years on from that prediction and nothing I see tends to confirm it. Anyone else?

The original news article isn’t available on the web any more, but both Kristine and Ed Brayton have sufficient extracts from it to reconstruct Dembski’s hubristic pronouncements. Brayton also supplies a link to Glenn Morton’s invaluable collection of quotations on The Imminent Demise of Evolution. Dembski is a minor figure in a long line of failed prophets.

By the way, another ID anniversary is nearly upon us. Any guesses as to what it is?
