Did anyone see that Ben Stein's interview yesterday? I forgot which show. I was watching it while waiting in a hotel lounge. Stein was ridiculing the very idea of aliens or any other god except for the christian god for being a possible candidate for the designer. His case was that the christian god should be considered to a possibility but when asked about other gods or aliens Stein just hand waved it off and said it was ridiculous to think that an intelligent designer could be aliens or whatnot.
I saw the interview. I believe it was Bill O'Reilly who did the interview. Imo, Stein waved off thinking ID could be other than the Biblical god because the Biblical record is the most concise, comprehensive, coherent and corroborated model for ID of any religion.
The thing that I don't understand is that the ID movement have been trying very hard to not associate themselves (publically at least) to christianity. Wouldn't Stein's obvious bias for the christian god on public television undermine all of this effort?
Many of the arguments for ID can be made outside of Christianity. The reason many Biblicalists work to disassociate their arguments from religion is that we must do so in order to expect any fora for airing our views.
There's another reason, imo, which is that the mainstream YEC position of a young universe and young earth is neither logical, scientific or Biblical relative to a literal reading of Genesis one.
