Correcting myself, of course. Chris Mooney gives Intelligent Design theorists their due and implies that, in my rant yesterday, I may have missed the point a bit. ID theorists "don't officially claim to know who the designer is, much less where that designer came from" he points out.
He's right, obviously, and as he pointed out in the American Prospect online, that's the whole, sneaky trick of their movement. They're saying, "We're not pushing God, we're just saying that everything seems to work very well, so someone must have designed it." The problem, though, is one of perspective. Yes, we see design from our perspective because, well, we're here.
