Intelligent Design is not religion in the guise of science. The term is self-explanatory and does not imply God or religion.
What f'ing bullshit. All the term Intelligent Design does is hand wave away the problem of explanation for the universe. If the universe is intelligently designed we are then left with the question of where that intelligence arose from and now the answer is left wanting once again.
Intelligent Design is a non answer for people whose credulity allows for no questioning.
How about non-Christians David Berlinski and Michael Denton?
David Berlinski eh? I have to ask you . Would you let your accountant prescribe medication to you or would you prefer a doctor? Why then is a mathematician holding court on the validity of a matter in biology? Should a microbiologist tell Berlinski that his thoughts on Ramuanujan's Sum Identity are ludicrous and without warrant? Did Einstein listen to his tailor when formulating general relativity theory? David Berlinski ,you might also note, does not attack Darwin alone but also Intelligent Design so perhaps this is not a can of worms you wish to open.
