For the Record

Quote: Wm Dembski, “The Design Revolution”, pgs 20, & 25

Regarding Intelligent Design: “...the public is informed that intelligent design is religion masquerading as science or Creationism in a Cheap Tuxedo (the title of a newspaper headline). The nature and, in particular, the moral characteristics of that intelligence constitute a separate inquiry. Intelligent design has theological implications, but it is not a theological enterprise. Theology does not own intelligent design. Intelligent design is not an evangelical Christian thing, or a generically Christian thing, or even a generically theistic thing. ...As a consequence, intelligent design does not stand or fall with whether one can furnish a satisfying theodicy.”
