Timaeus, you've convinced me that, at least for subset of ID proponents, ID
is not an effort to incorporate religious beliefs into science. You say it's
science, I would go with Ted and say it probably qualifies as philosophy of
science (and therefore can be taught in public schools -- if only they'd
teach philosophy of science). However, you have a major public relations
problem that comes from the fact that a good many folks in the pews have
latched onto ID, or what they think ID is, to serve as a sort of crutch for
their religion. It would seem to me a good idea for ID proponents to work
overtime to disabuse churches of this misconception. Of course some ID
proponents might be afraid to lose their following if the real nture of ID
were revealed.
