Ron Numbers tells Salon,
But the leaders of the intelligent design movement, beginning with Berkeley, Calif., lawyer Philip Johnson, have wanted to re-sacralize science. They want to ditch the commitment to naturalism and allow for supernatural explanations. That’s the most radical revolution I can imagine in doing science. And many Christians who are scientists don’t want to do that.
Which is rubbish, but just the sort of rubbish the Salon-ites would believe.
Put another way, if re-sacralizing science means that beliefs about capital-E Evolution, higher dimensional stars, hypothetical Urzymes, and ghost lineages must be entertained because otherwise the universe would have to seem like it was designed …
… well then, a reasonable person should prefer to think the universe was designed.
