|Just a quick one here and I'll be back later for some more. As a clarification, I don't think ID is either science or religion, it is a philosophy.|
God, ultimately, is a personal concept and in truth it has no bearing on God's existence what anyone's personal concept is. Just a quick example, if I could take every single religious text on Earth (every faith) and thoroughly disproves every single line in them it still would mean nothing when the question of God's existence is approached. I know that's hard to accept but I believe your resistance comes from the fact that you're trying to frame this as a scientific question and it is not one.
Lenny, go back again and read. You'll see that I've questioned AFDave, FtK, Reddot, to name a few. I will always question YECers scientifically because I believe they are in the wrong as I will question anyone perverting science to make claims about faith because they are also absolutely wrong.
Oh yes, you give some half-assed criticisms to some of the craziest, but you still give cover to all the others, including the IDers.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
