Re: Intelligent Design winning over Catholic Church

I fired off a letter to the Discovery Institute asking for a clarification of the Intelligent Design model as well as an explanation for their involvement with the Catholic Church in direct violation of their stated position,and I quote

Unlike creationism, the scientific theory of intelligent design is agnostic regarding the source of design and has no commitment to defending Genesis, the Bible or any other sacred text. Honest critics of intelligent design acknowledge the difference between intelligent design and creationism. University of Wisconsin historian of science Ronald Numbers is critical of intelligent design, yet according to the Associated Press, he "agrees the creationist label is inaccurate when it comes to the ID [intelligent design] movement." Why, then, do some Darwinists keep trying to conflate intelligent design with creationism?

Seems to me there is a need by the Creation Instiute to clarify matters and to answer questions regarding this. I also proposed some conundrums with modern physics that render a designer highly improbable and also question what the nature of intelligence is with the designer they have proposed.I have mentioned that they can defend their position and I will keep a running tab on how much time passes before a response is forthcoming and post both my letter and the response on a thread should such an unlikely event occur.

Do you wonder why they would need the Pope on their side if their "science" can stand on it's own? Is the Pope an expert on either evolution or Intelligent Design? :laugh: Inquiring minds want to know.

Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry
