Then ID is not a science; it can only be either a theology or a philosophy.

So again ID is not a science, just some form of philosophy or theology.
>Many people claim that there is no spiritual dimension to man.
According to your fish-in-water metaphor, we cannot know if there is a
spiritual dimension and we can never prove there is. Yet you maintain we
are the only known "detector" for such a dimension. That suggests to me
that we can indeed know if there is a spiritual dimension and we might even
be able to prove it.

I would certainly like to see your evidence for that. However, if we can
never prove or even know that a spiritual dimension exists, then in point of
fact it may not exist, in which case pure matter obviously can develop
thought and reasoning.
