Hmm …

… The American Spectator : Darwinism and Materialism: They Sink or Swim Together.

… Science Beyond Materialism.

(Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I was interested to see that Rupert Sheldrake objects to Intelligent Design theory for the same reason I do, "because it assumes a mechanistic view of nature." It is, at least, consistent. If you assume the world is a machine, it's hard to see how you can get by without a mechanic. A.S. Byatt, in review of works by the Icelandic author Sjón, which I linked to here, quotes a character in Sjón's The Blue Fox: “I have seen the universe! It is made of poems!” That's more my view.
