You may remember New Scientist reporters like Celeste Biever and Bob Holmes going undercover to get ahold of publically available information from supporters of intelligent design. As Casey Luskin explains over at Evolution News & Views, the practice seems to be spreading to college professors.

Professor Donald M. O'Malley sent Luskin an e-mail, claiming to be an intelligent design supporter who wanted to fly "under the radar." Presumably he hoped that Luskin would reveal the true purpose of the ID movement, which, as we all know, is to institute a theocracy, reinstate witch burnings, and strap a belt of explosives to the Statue of Liberty and send her back to France.

Unfortunately, Luskin didn't disclose any juicy bits of information, and Dr. O'Malley admitted that his e-mails had been "misleading", that he had "feigned sympathy for the ID movement, within the context of understanding how the CNS [Center for Science & Culture?] works", and that he was "embarrassed by [his] actions." As well he should be.
