Faith-based Evolution

Could there be a scientist who has accepted Intelligent Design as being on par with evolution? Dr. Roy W. Spencer says, "I came to the realization that intelligent design, as a theory of origins, is no more religious, and no less scientific, than evolutionism."

You might wonder how scientists who are taught to apply disciplined observation and experimentation and to search for natural explanations for what is observed in nature can come to such a conclusion? For those of you who consider themselves open-minded, I will try to explain.

Read the whole thing to discover how much evolution and the physics of the origin of the universe depend heavily on faith (and about how parts of modern explanations of evolution depend on the lack of hard evidence).

Trackback Pings


He's a meteorologist, for cryin' out loud. He doesn't know anything about biology.

But if he knows something about intelligent design, I'd be more impressed if he'd use it to give us a non-chaotic (that is, designed) theory of weather.

Where are the ID-inspired research reports on the rest of creation, by the way? Weren't the other parts designed, too?

Earthquake prediction ought to be a snap for these guys, for example.
