quote:There is no rigorous examination of ID by it's detractors. That is most clearly seen by their numerous misrepresentations of it. Heck, they don't even understand it, much less can claim to have rigorously considered ID papers and claims.
How convenient. Whenever ID is totally annihilated then you get to claim that the detractors have gotten it all wrong as you change what ID actually is.
ID was shredded as early as 1997. http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/cosmo.html
ID's claim is simple and can be reduced to one sentence. If one cannot explain something now, God must therefore be the cause. The entire eye argument is that. As the eye is too complex to explain with the current information, Goddidit. The problem is that our knowledge keeps expanding. ID's logic dictates that prior to an understanding of seasons, that God was the source of the seasons. Interesting enough there were and still are religions that believe that.
