Idea is generally well-accepted

Two recent articles appeared on the front page of The Herald regarding intelligent design. Neither addressed the real issue evolutionists have against it.

Intelligent design is not new, but is already widely used and accepted. For example, our courts use it to determine whether ideas, products, literature, etc. were original ideas or were plagiarized or violations of patents or copyright laws. Criminal investigations use it to determine whether evidence is coincidental or “beyond a reasonable doubt”. The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) project uses it to evaluate signals from space. In short, intelligent design uses solid, verified and well-accepted scientific methods.

What evolutionists fear is when intelligent design principles are applied to the creation-evolution debate. When that happens, creation shines and evolution is exposed as implausible. It is therefore critical for evolutionists to convince you that intelligent design is the boogieman.

The next time you see an evolutionist comment on intelligent design, see if they address the actual concepts, or instead try to scare you by calling it “a variation of creationism”, or some other despicable label.
