From my own layman's point of view, here is how I would see the debate:
Science is trying to tell a story, the story of life, the Universe and everything (42, anyone?). It does so by working hypothesis, based upon evidence, observation, predictions and falsifiability.
IDC, on the other hand, is trying to advertise for its sunday brunch at the church, presenting none of the work required to be scientific.
If William Shakespeare was Science, IDC would be the local preacher trying to break each and every night into William's office to add a Deus Ex machina to Hamlet.
Sure, it would be fun by entertainement standards, and would bring many to the congregation. But in the end no one would know what really happened to Claudius.
Just a thought, my 0.02$, etc...
