Intelligent Design at Baylor University: The Rise and Fall of Baylor University’s Michael Polanyi Center
Man. I have to read this all the way through. :D
That is the paper I was looking for when I made this comment here three days ago:

It was written by Dembski about the time the Polanyi center was being considered/set up. As I recall, he was justifying it to the leaders of Baylor (or somebody).
As I recall, in it there is a part where he says something to the effect that ultimately the purpose of science is to describe the natural world.
My thanks to everyone involved in helping me find it again!
