Is Intelligent Design good for Christianity?
However, ID does more harm than good. It sets up a God of the gaps that can be dangerous. The most common example is the so called "irriducibly complex" systems. The argument is basically that these systems could not have been evolved, so therefore they must have been designed. However science is learning how these structures could be evolved, thus leaving less room for God to operate. It would be much better to just reject science altogether, then to try to use weak, psuedo-scientific arguments, to prop up your faith.
