This discussion about Intelligent Design is getting quite boring, with all parties seemingly stepping around key points.
The mystical “Intelligent Designer” person obviously has to be God, and that’s why it’s evangelical Christian groups who are promoting it in Australia. Both minister Brendan Nelson and Professor Graeme Clark are now on record saying that it’s not science.
Although it’s hidden under lots of big words, there is nothing more to the theory than saying “God created everything through magic“. Where’s the science in that?
