The nature of the interaction of God with His creation will be forever a
mystery to those on this side of death. I believe that the question of
origins is not a scientific question and as such an ID can be indeed the
answer to the question of how everything came into being. However, I do not
see how one can ever write dynamical laws with God as part of the
interaction. God may be absent in the dynamical models of nature that
scientists construct by the very nature of science; however, God is ever
present in the real thing.
