One of the most astounding and shocking discoveries of Intelligent Design theorists is not the almost infinite and irreducible complexity of living organisms, but the almost total resistance to the implications of this on the part of materialistic scientists.
Two leading ID theorists, Benjamin Wiker and Jonathan Witt, stated their amazement in these terms: “Why should we suffer any longer under the reign of materialism and its subspecies, Darwinism? There is no reason except an all-too-human intransigence in the face of mounting evidence… Such blindness is actually a form of the most ancient of sins, pride; and this pride attacks science at its core. At the heart of the scientific enterprise is humility…” (A Meaningful World [Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2006], pp. 238, 246).
