Phony theory, false conflict

Neocon apologist Charles Krauthammer skewers Intelligent Design in this Op-ed. Interesting. He sees no conflict between evolution and religion. Neither does the Catholic Church for that matter.

Let’s be clear. Intelligent design may be interesting as theology, but as science it is a fraud.

How ridiculous to make evolution the enemy of God. What could be more elegant, more simple, more brilliant, more economical, more creative, indeed more divine than a planet with millions of life forms, distinct and yet interactive, all ultimately derived from accumulated variations in a single double-stranded molecule, pliable and fecund enough to give us mollusks and mice, Newton and Einstein? Even if it did give us the Kansas State Board of Education, too.
