Okay, I have a weekend homework assignments for anyone who has read The Design Matrix. In my last entry, I looked at Seth Shostak’s article about SETI and uncovered some remarkable points of convergence between SETI and The Design Matrix. After reading Shostak’s article and my blog entry, now go and read Steven Novella’s essay, SETI vs Intelligent Design.
Novella is the author of NeurologicaBlog and does a nice job of building on Shostak’s argument about SETI. Your assignment is simple: can you find examples of any stunning similarities between The Design Matrix and Novella’s more detailed explanation of SETI?
