Founded in 1990, the Discovery Institute is a conservative outfit that advocates “intelligent design” (ID), the latest variant of creationism. The Discovery Institute opposes Darwinian evolution and argues that mainstream science excludes the possibility of an intelligent “designer” as the driving force behind human origins. (The Institute has no plausible candidates for this “designer” other than God.) The Institute’s founder and president, Bruce Chapman, is a former director of the U.S. Census Bureau. He later served as deputy assistant to the president and director of White House Office of Planning and Evaluation under President Ronald Reagan from 1983-85.
