Researcher Brings Intelligent Design to Mind
Monastersky, Richard
Chronicle of Higher Education, v52 n38 pA18 May 2006
Jeffrey M. Schwartz, a research professor of psychiatry at the University of California at Los Angeles, presented a paper titled "Intelligence Is an Irreducible Aspect of Nature" at a secret conference on intelligent-design, held at Biola University, which describes itself as "a global center for Christian thought." Dr. Schwartz argued that his studies of the mind provide support for the idea that consciousness exists in nature, separate from human brains. Organizers of the conference, called "Research and Progress on Intelligent Design," had hoped to keep its existence out of public view. Intelligent-design proponents believe that an intelligent force rather than natural selection created the diversity of life seen today, a proposition that has sparked conflicts over public-school curricula across the nation.
