For those of you who may have been offended by the chain-jerking nature of the link, I would say this: Lighten up, Francis.

As a matter of fact, I am rather ambivalent on the whole ID debate, which is why I've stayed out of it. In general, I certainly believe in God as the Creator of all things, and I am at least sympathetic to the notion that he may have put his thumb on the cosmic scales here and there in order to point evolution in the direction he wanted it to go (which is what I understand Intelligent Design to boil down to).

This is certainly something that could be addressed in the context of religious education. But I simply don't know if or how it could or should be made part of a scientific curriculum. Unfortunately, there is a good deal of foaming at the mouth on both sides of this debate which a) makes it extremely difficult to determine whether there could be some grounds for compromise, and b) is bloody tarsome.

So there.
