Intelligent Design - A Circle Jerk of Contradiction. The major points of the ID 'thesis' go something like this... 1. Scientific theories about the origins of life and the universe cannot explain everything perfectly, which means there is much that we still don't understand. Therefore it is unreasonable to accept these theories as plausible explanations for anything. 2. By substituting the 'God' theory in place of contemporary scientific theories, we no longer need to be troubled by the vast unknown since we lack the ability to comprehend God's glory anyway. Therefore it is reasonable and logical to accept the 'God' theory as it explains everything perfectly... as wholly unexplainable. So the ID nutter essentially argues that scientific theories fail specifically because they can't explain everything, but ID succeeds specifically because it can't explain anything. And that is a circle jerk of contradiction if ever there was one.
