Intelligent Design

Just got done with a movie about the ID concept and what it means. I think it sets forth a very convincing arguement against Darwinian Evolution (at least on a fundemental building blocks of life case) and challenges the scientific assumption that everything can be explained naturally. Pretty interesting.

One thing I didn't like about it though was that it made the claim that "the evidence speaks for itself." No, evidence needs to be interpreted in order to speak, and when one interprets evidence, one brings one's own presuppositions into play. Two people seeing the same picture can come up with two completely different reasons and explanations for it, it's all dependant on who they are and their own personal experiences.

Other than that, I think it was really interesting. Some websites of note:

They put it forth very well, with a wealth of good links at the bottom.

from a literal-creation Christian perspective.

The intelligent design blog. Some interesting posts, but of more interest is the links to the right.

Closely linked to this idea is the debate between 7-day and progressive. Websites on both I like

7-dayer. I think my views are more in line here.

day-age creationism. There's a wealth of knowledge here.

Me personally? I am a 7-dayer, though I would say that it seems like the progressive creation does have some support and there are Christians whom I would affirm as brothers and sisters on both sides of the debate.
