Indeed ...

... Bad science, bad theology, and blasphemy. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

... to insert God into the causal chain is a category mistake and, in fact, technically a blasphemy. It implies that God is one more thing along with all the other things in the universe. You're not dealing with divinity there, but an idol.

Mark's conclusion echoes my own view that the problem with ID theory is its notion of God as some everlasting Edison puttering about in his celestial laboratory tinkering with the wombats.
