was on Steven Colbert’s.. report last night. Go to his website and view the video/audio of the short discussion. Miller once again slams dunks the propaganda machine known as Intelligent Design. Good stuff from a wonderful man and marvelous scientist.

Got a direct link by any chance?  I’ve no idea what his website url would be.  I am a HUGE fan of Dr. Miller.

And also Tavish, I wanted to mention that I also am a huge fan of Ken Millers. I think every American would be a better person if they read ‘Finding Darwins God’ Miller seems to be such a nice and cordial man yet totally professional and brilliant about cell biology. He reconciles his faith with his science nicely, without flaming either side IMO.

Bruce, those aren’t linking to the June 16th show.  Thanks anyhow though.  I saw it earlier today.  Kinda a boring show with Colbert being so sarcastic all the time with a guest that doesn’t play off that.

tavish. Yeah thats the problem with Colbert is he drowns out the guest. Michael Shermer was on there last year and he barely got a chance to say anything.

Colbert has a lot of scientists and philosopher types on his show, and yeah he is a funny guy, but I wish he would let them talk more.

Physicist Brian Greene was on a few weeks ago as well.

Still, through all of the BS, I thought Miller made his points.
