Creationism, Intelligent Design, Whateverrrrrrrrr 2

(Why can’t I type “Whateverrrrrrrrr” the way my daughter says it?)

It’s not science.

    I found this quote from the link interesting:

    “Intelligent design is the theory that the origins and workings of the universe can never be explained through science alone.”

    Would this definition be confirmed by people who propose the theory? It’s not what I imagined intelligent design theory to be.

    No, that’s not how they would describe it. Their definition mandates a “Designer.”

    I read the Dover, Pa., opinion today. The judge spent a lot of time defining “intelligent design” as the term as used by those who jinned up the concept.

    He also showed quite convincingly that it is creationism in sheep’s clothing (early drafts of the book, Of Pandas and People, actually used “Creatism” in the text; it was changed subsequent to the court ruling that, as a religious concept, creationism cannot be taught as if it were science.

    You can find the opinion here.
