I recently accused proponents of intelligent design of serious violations of the moral principles their organizations claim to be fighting to uphold. Apparently someone noticed that I was unable to list all the commandments and has taken measures to rectify the matter.
A number of blogs such as ERV, Pharyngula and Paralepsis are currently suggesting that Bill Dembski has added theft to the list of sins of which proponents of ID can be accused. Although we all knew they are willing to ignore the context of the quotes they mine from mainstream scientists, apparently they are also willing to take simulations others have created and use them for purposes antithetical to that for which it was created, without permission or royalties.
But can anyone really be surprised at proponents of intelligent design being accused of plagiarism? After all, which of their ideas could ever have been seriously considered new?
