"Let's be clear. Intelligent design may be interesting as theology, but as science it is a fraud. It is a self-enclosed, tautological "theory" whose only holding is that when there are gaps in some area of scientific knowledge -- in this case, evolution -- they are to be filled by God."
Well said IMHO.

" Einstein saw his entire vocation -- understanding the workings of the universe -- as an attempt to understand the mind of God."
The sad part is that some can't see this. Any theories that cast doubt upon a strict interpretation of the bible's version of creation are labeled as heresy.

No, it says that God is a geometer. It is not a "god of the gaps" theory. Rather it says that the Darwinism mechanism does not properly represent the patterns we see. Certainly it is true if we restrict ourselves to what Darwin said. The neo-darwinists have spliced that into a broader theory.

I usually don't ping the list this late in a thread because the whack-jobs have already messed it up, but Krauthammer is worth it. Cranking up the ping machine ...

I agree that Intelligent Design is a scientific fraud. It is also a theological fraud. No more so a xcientific fraud, however, than "Evolution" in its pure, unadulterated form that claims it as absolute scientific fact.
