The Facts About "Intelligent Design"

Many thanks to Skeptico for this tip and an excellent method of getting the information out there.

The National Center for Science Education is a resource rich website for educators and lay folk alike. If you're doing a blog piece, or simply want a clear explanation for some scientific terminology pertaining to evolution, the NCSE site is a must. The particular link at top points to their FAQ on ID - Intelligent Design.

Incorporating this link with the words Intelligent Design or ID will help get this particular site to the top of anyone's Google on this IDiotic phrase.

Blog it!


  1. Hi MBains,

    Great blog you have here!

    I'm a firm believer in evolution, but ID theory doesn't seem to get me all worked up. My attitude is, "Bring it on, let the best theory or wanna-be theory win!"

    In other words, millions of people believe in creationism/ID. If people want to talk about ID theory, then set up a special class where the differences between science and religion are learned and explored, and show, with all due respect, why ID is not a scientific theory. It's not that hard, after all.

    Thanks again for your blog, I look forward to coming back.

  2. Although our president has put much thought, I'm sure, in putting "intelligent design" on an equal footing with evolution as a scientific theory - he's just that kind of a guy - "ontogeny recapitulates philogeny," if I even spelled anything there right, is an example of how, as I understand it, multiple lines of evidence support the theory of evolution. (As opposed to, say, a line in the Bible and a bunch of tendentious reasoning on the part of right-minded scientists.)

    The idea is just that, when you observe the stages of human life in the womb, they correlate with other evidence for evolution: at one point we have gills, etc., I couldn't give you the details, being no scientist...
