Philosophy and Intelligent Design

Personally, I think the "Intelligent Design" argument was carefully crafted by a lawyer (Phillip Johnson) to bring creationism back before the courts and give the Religious Right another political wedge issue to rally hordes of "values voters."

Ono Ekeh, however, on his Ono's thoughts blog offers a very good discussion as to whether "Intelligent Design" deserves to be categorized as philosophy or science. It is well worth reading.

It's a shame that last year Ono lost his job with the U.S. Conference of Bishops for openly supporting John Kerry's presidency.
