Some Good Passages on ID

As I’ve said many times already, I’m not very conservative, but I do find some good articles on conservative web pages sometimes. This one is decent.  The reason that I decided to link it, is for one passage that I particularly liked.

Just because the laws of science can explain how life and the universe operate and work doesn’t mean there is no Maker. Would it be rational to believe that there’s no designer behind airplanes because the laws of science can explain how airplanes operate and work?

I like this, because Darwinists (as a rule) tend to think that ID is refuted any time they think they can explain something through science.  The thought process is that since ID is anti-science, then any scientific explanation for anything automatically refutes the ID position.  What they don’t accept is that ID is science, and also relies on the scientific explanation.  It does nothing to refute ID to point out that weather (for instance) is a natural event.

I’ll end this with another pretty good passage:

Natural laws are adequate to explain how the order in life, the universe, and even a microwave oven operates, but mere undirected natural laws can never fully explain the origin of such order.

  1. Professor Smith: What they don’t accept is that ID is science, and also relies on the scientific explanation.

    Here is a pretty thorough refutation of your position:

  2. I am well aware of Lenny Flank and his writing, and I don’t see anything in his link beyond strawmen arguments and quote mining or at least taking quotes out of context. This is not a refutation of my position, it’s a refutation of the ridiculous position that Darwinists try to ascribe to ID so that they can disregard it and go on about their lives safe in their dogmatic cocoon of never having to question themselves. I suggest that you actually look up what ID says and deal with the actual arguments of ID scientists.
