A view on intelligent design

Not Intelligent, and Surely Not Science describes one concept of the opposition to Darwin’s ideas that needs careful consideration.

In fact, invoking intelligent design as God’s place-filler can only result in the naturalization of the deity. God becomes just another part of the natural world, and thereby loses the transcendent mystery and divinity that define the boundary between religion and science.

It seems this same idea may apply to the knee jerk ‘life at any cost’ hue and cry about Schiavo. Those who decry a ‘cult of death’ are showing the same sort of debate dishonesty as the ID/creation folks. There is a crassness to their views in trying to bring the mystery and divinity of life down to a matter of flesh and bone that belies their expressed position.
