I'm not sure what you mean by "strictly evolutionary thought." If it
means holding to evolution as ultimate truth, then ID does play a role
in dethroning such an idea. Perhaps a bigger role than some of us
would believe.

But the study of science I was exposed to never gave any theory that
sort of exalted position. Polkinghorne uses the word "verisimilitude"
in its place.
