The question and answer as Bill Dembski was given by someone in the audience recalling it wasn’t an unfair paraphrase. The verbage was different but the points were essentially the same.
And whether Ken Miller wants to admit it or not a unverse that was designed so that the evolution of life was inevitable fits just fine into the big ID tent. Miller’s claim that ID supporters all think that constant meddling by a creator is required to make evolution happen is just a big, bold lie made up so that Ken can exclude himself from the tent. Shame on you Ken. Even though you lie about us we welcome you to the tent anyhow.
Bill Dembski’s blogczar for one (me) doesn’t think the creator meddled. Obviously Bill Dembski, the go-to guy for all things ID, must respect my viewpoint if he saw fit to let me moderate his weblog and use it for a soapbox for my front-loaded corner of the big tent. I happen to think the best explanation is that the life that appeared on the earth billions of years ago was placed here by an intelligent agency (whose character is unknown to me) and that first life was preprogrammed to evolve and diversify along a more or less set path from single undifferentiated cell to everything today, much as a hen’s egg is preprogrammed to evolve and diversify from a single cell into a chicken. No meddling required. So there. Now be a man and take back your lie about what all ID proponents believe about constant meddling.
