I think the anti-ID crowd would do itself a favor (and I am generally on it's side) if it realized that not all Christians who believe in ID reject evolution, geology, plate tectonics, archeology, astronomy, physics, and all the other sciences involved in proving that the earth is NOT 15,000 years old.

In other words, there are people of Christian faith who believe in God but also accept the reality of science.

So try not to alienate those of faith who are on your side. :-)

The problem is the people who believe ID as a scientific concept, and not a philosophical one. As a science, ID is noncorporeal.

What's funny is this whole type of discussion is that creationists aren't even "rejecting science", they are rejecting bad science passed off as received truth - something that evolutionists argue that religion does.

Let's face it - there are quite a number of conceptual and evidential reasons to question just about every tenet of evolutionary theory. Some of these reasons might end up being good reasons, and some might not. The problem is not the invalidity of arguments made by creationists (well, except for that whole "geocentricity" thing). The problem is that evolutionists point-blank refuse to allow their theory to be challenged scientifically. To "prove" their theory, they come up with any number of circularly-reasoned arguments based off of their own theories that they then USE to suggest that they've proven their theories. When someone DOES challenge, instead of responding like the mature adults that degrees in science might suggest them to be, they instead act like spoiled five-year olds who are told that Santa Claus doesn't exist.
