When this was reported 4 years ago I thought that it was a very
strange prediction. It is now seen to be laughably wrong. "Theistic
evolution" has suffered very little erosion in the interim, and except for
the usual suspects continues to be the way virtually all theologically
knowledgeable Christians discuss evolution and creation.
The major defect of the ID movement continues to be the inability or
unwillingness of its proponents to deal with theological issues.
