Oh goody... Now Klinghoffer has suggested the fiction offers a way to breach the science/religion barrier in his praise of an ID "thriller" The Soul of the Matter.

Good grief...

The story is one of redemption and enlightenment, as a cynic rethinks the tenets of materialism he previously took for granted. The book can serve as a helpful introduction to ID, as accessible (in its very different way) as Doug Axe's new book Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed. The argument for design can be recondite and these two books together go a long distance to making it comprehensible to the most general of readers.

Obviously, Mr. Buff hasn't advanced the scientific case for ID. However he has done a service by offering a smart, often exciting story that is intellectually serious and spiritually earnest and that will, one hopes, place ultimate questions about man's place in the universe before a deservedly wide audience.

All science so far... except for the religion... and the fiction parts.

The argument for design...

The Argument Regarding Design, Klingy.

according to TAFD refers to "Theoretical Air Free Density" of concrete but surely describes Klinghoffer's arguments as well

"[...] the type of information we find in living systems is beyond the creative means of purely material processes [...] Who or what is such an ultimate source of information? [...] from a theistic perspective, such an information source would presumably have to be God."
