I'm slowly slogging through Jerry Coyne's 8 page review of books by Giberson and Miller, when I come across this passage:
But regardless of their views, all creationists [by which he includes all ID proponents] share four traits. First, they devoutly believe in God. No surprise there, except to those who think that ID has a secular basis. Second, they claim that God miraculously intervened in the development of life, either creating every species from scratch or intruding from time to time in an otherwise Darwinian process. Third, they agree that one of these interventions was the creation of humans, who could not have evolved from apelike ancestors. This, of course, reflects the Judeo-Christian view that humans were created in God's image. Fourth, they all adhere to a particular argument called "irreducible complexity." This is the idea that some species, or some features of some species, are too complex to have evolved in a Darwinian manner, and must therefore have been designed by God.
Ya' know, the least the guy could do is get his facts right. No, not all ID proponents devoutly believe in God. Fred Hoyle didn't. Dennis Scot claims not to. No, not all ID proponents believe that God miraculously intervened in the development of life. Obviously not Hoyle. Behe goes out of his way to offer a hypothesis where an uberphysicist could have chosen a universe where certain critical events would happen in natural history, resulting in our present state of affairs. And Mike Gene favors the hypothesis that after the origin of life, no further intelligent intervention was necessary. No, not all ID proponents agree that humans couldn't have evolved from apelike ancestors. In fact, Behe makes the point that humans and chimpanzees share a pseudogene that proves they had a common ancestor. And no, not all ID proponents believe that irreducible complexity couldn't have evolved in a Darwinian manner. In fact, Mike Gene goes into a long explanation of what sort of evidence to look for to determine if a particular irreducibly complex system evolved.
I'll try finishing Coyne's review. Hopefully he doesn't just blather on, screwing up facts and ignoring his methaphysical assumptions.
