"First, Darwinian theory tells us how a certain amount of diversity in life forms can develop once we have various types of complex living organisms already in existence." -- Phillip E. Johnson
Phillip E. Johnson (born 18 June 1940) is a retired UC Berkeley law professor and author. He became a born-again Christian while a tenured professor and is considered the father of the intelligent design movement. A critic of what he calls "Darwinism" and "scientific materialism", Johnson rejects evolution in favor of neocreationist views known as intelligent design. He was a cofounder of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture (CSC) and is credited with establishing the wedge strategy, which aims to change public opinion and scientific consensus, and seeks to convince the scientific community to allow a role for God in scientific theory (a position he terms theistic realism). As a member of the Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS Hypothesis, a prominent AIDS denialist group, Johnson has written that HIV does not cause AIDS, HIV tests do not detect HIV and AIDS statistics are grossly exaggerated. The scientific community dismisses Johnson's opinions on evolution and AIDS as pseudoscience.
