My Advocacy for Intelligent Design Theory and Theism
While officially still being a Darwinist myself, I organized a public panel debate about Intelligent Design vs Darwinism on November 24, 2009 at the State Museum for
Natural History in Stuttgart / Germany. It was titled "Design without a Designer?" and participants were representatives of Intelligent Design and Creationism (Dr. Douglas
Axe, Dr. Reinhard Junker, Dr. Wolf Ekkehard Lönnig, and Markus Rammerstorfer) as well as
Darwinian evolutionism (Prof. Martin Blum, Hansjörg
Hemminger, Dr. Jürgen Kriwet, Dr. Michael Maisch, Dr. Mike Thiv). About 200 people were attending, but unfortunately any audio and video recording was explicitly prohibited by the
museum's director Prof. Johanna Eder. Reports (in German) by participants of this event are linked above. There was also a bizarre rant by the German humanist
organization Giordano Bruno Stiftung after the announcement of the debate, that was answered by Prof.
In October 2015 I made public my support for Intelligent Design and my conversion to theism with my new website and Facebook page.
