Intelligent Design is not Good Science
Is the theory of "INTELLIGENT DESIGN" all that Intelligent?
Intelligent Design is a good topic for a course in the sociology of knowledge. It is also good grist for the mill in philosophy and theology courses. But it is not good science, and Christians who try and force scientists to teach the ideas of ID in science classes do intelligent Christians a disservice.
Here's an op-ed piece I published on ID and the controversy over the Dover PA school board elections (in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Nov. 2005).
George Coyne, S.J., a leading scientist at the Vatican Observatory, has an excellent article on the topic in The Tablet.
