Todayâ€™s Washington Post runs a story on the Intelligent Design (ID) debate titled â€œIn Explaining Life’s Complexity, Darwinists and Doubters Clash.â€ One opponent of Intelligent Design explains why he thinks ID is unscientific: â€œOne of the rules of science is, no miracles allowed. That’s a fundamental presumption of what we do.â€
Isnâ€™t it telling that the proponents of Darwinism reject ID based solely on the presumption that ID canâ€™t be right. Thereâ€™s no serious engagement of the arguments and data cited by ID proponents, just an a priori dismissal.
This just goes to show the atheistic naturalism that is at the heart of much of modern science. This God-less presumption concerning human origins is no less a faith commitment than those who would argue otherwise.
