Their mission statement looks like a watered down regurgitation of the Wedge Strategy document. All they are missing is the governing goals that say that ID promises: “To defeat scientific materialism and its destructive moral, cultural and political legacies.” And then “To replace materialistic explanations with the theistic understanding that nature and human beings are created by God.” :rolleyes: I see nothing new…maybe we will get some IDeists to step up to the plate. I won’t be holding my breath.

I fail to see the SETI connection that they make - maybe I'm just stupid but I don't see how it links to intelligent design (in the manner they use it).
Can someone explain it to me?

Perhaps William Demski is using the Raelian’s view on the ID issue – hence the SETI connection. Though I doubt it, I just thought I would throw it out there.
