WorldNetDaily: Limbaugh got it wrong, says intelligent designer

At issue: Rush Limbaugh, on his radio program, said that proponents of the theory of Intelligent Design (ID) ought to give up trying to distinguish their position from Biblical creationism.

A leading ID researcher says that Rush is wrong to blur the distinction.

And as a creationist, I agree with that researcher.

Creationism and Intelligent Design theory are not the same. All that Intelligent Design says is that life, in all its marvelous complexity, shows evidence of design--evidence that one cannot explain away as due to pure chance. Attempts to explain it away, quite simply, violate the Law of Averages.

But Intelligent Design says nothing--absolutely nothing--about Who is the Designer. Nor does it follow anyof the clues that the Bible gives us about the order in which God created life (plants first, then animals of the sea and air, and finally animals that creep, crawl, and walk on land.

Intelligent Design is a wonderful basis for establishing that some kind of design is evident in life. But it can and does go no further than that.

The Bible, however, talks in detail about life's beginning--and its eventual end.
