Good question. I've always wondered myself why the biggest proponents of
intelligent design and theistic science are not physical scientists but
philosophers, lawyers, etc. I personally believe the reason is that people
who actually do science find such ideas (as with many philosophical ideas)
unworkable in the real world.
