|We're still making good progress. They were good questions to ask. I was at least quickly able to give a short answer, then the replies that came back made it easier to elaborate.|
From what I can now sense, you are not used to an ID framework where there is no natural/supernatural dichotomy that makes the questions the same as asking whether you can tell the difference between apples and apples. That is why I am now trying to explain what I right away saw. Once you can look at it that way, you'll know what I'm talking about.
I'll try to think of another way to explain it. But the simple answer is that the way the science works out the intelligent designer also exists 24/7 in nature (especially through molecular intelligence) and all over the universe, not outside of it in some scientifically impossible realm.
As in any scientific theory, something either exists or it does not. Same here. But that might at first seem impossible, I guess.
So, is that a "pantheism" answer, or a "miracles happen all the time" answer, or a "God is a tinkerer" answer, or a "front-loading" answer? Or an "invisible holograms" answer?
Or an "I'm being deliberately obtuse because my theory is as insubstantial as a bird fart" answer?
The way what science works out, Gary? Where's the equation that points to the designer? You know, like:
The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.
