In “Intelligent Design Is Dead: A Christian Perspective”(Huffington Post Canada
01/ 2/12 09), science and religion writer and teacher Paul Wallace announces, “Intelligent Design Is Dead: A Christian Perspective,”
For a person of faith, ID is not just an unnecessary choice; it is a harmful one. It reduces God to a kind of holy tinkerer. It locates the divine in places of ignorance and obscurity. And this gives it a defensive and fearful spirit that is out of place in Christian faith and theology.
He gets through an entire column without clearly explaining to readers a single thesis offered by ID theorists on the probability of natural selection creating great gains in information – the central point at issue.
But then how many people in Wallace’s position could actually afford to know what the issues are? Reading this sort of thing makes it much easier to understand the contempt that the typical real Darwinist feels for the Christian Darwinist.
