Senior fellow at the Center for Science and Culture. Intelligent design proponent.

It is interersting that one of the senior fellows at the Discovery Institute, Jonathan Wells, is a Moonie as in the Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification cult. As to why he chose the anti-evolutionist path he did Wells says "He [Moon] also spoke out against the evils in the world; among them, he frequently criticized Darwin's theory that living things originated without God's purposeful, creative activity". He goes on to say that "Father's [Moon's] words, my studies, and my prayers convinced me that I should devote my life to destroying Darwinism".
