The Reinhard Reflection: Post 2: Evolution Versus Intelligent Design
Not much on James Reinhard’s blog - but he hits the nail squarely on the head here:
The reason intelligent design is not a theory, is because it cannot be tested and it cannot be predicted. Intelligent design relies on the belief that there is an intelligent force or designer, that instead of all species evolving gradually, this designer brought species into existence, in their present state. There is simply no way to test the existence of this designer and if species were brought into existence haphazardly there’s no way to predict where or when there fossils would be found. In most cases, believers in intelligent design devote more time find faults in the evolution theory, and where ever they can find fault they implant the idea that intelligent design is the reason for the fault. They aren’t trying to prove intelligent design, they’re trying to disprove evolution.
