If there is some naive soul who still thinks that ID is not about interventionist God, Timaeus dispels any doubts.
That is where ID people strongly differ from TE/EC people — they have a much greater commitment to retaining the uncompromised theologies of the various ancient Christian traditions — Reformed, Lutheran, Anglican, Catholic, and Orthodox. The TE/EC people are generally much more enthralled with post-Enlightenment developments in Christian theology. But the “theism” of post-Enlightenment thought is quite different from the “theism” of pre-Enlightenment thought. The theism of pre-Enlightenment thought was not the captive slave of naturalism in origins.
Would it be rude to ask you, Gregory, if you agree with the working understanding of BioLogos, i.e., that ultimately the origin of life, species, and man will all be explained in wholly naturalistic terms, i.e., as requiring no “intervention” but only “natural laws” devised by and sustained by God? I don’t believe you have ever spoken to this subject. It may be your silence in this area that makes your position so hard for people at UD to understand.
