I know why ID doesn’t make good science, but the theology arguments were new considerations for me. Dr. Padian pointed out that ID would require frequent tinkering by a creator. Why didn’t the (omnipotent) creator get it right the first time? ID requires divine intervention, which makes us wonder why this creator doesn’t intervene more often and perhaps alleviate some suffering. And by pretending that ID is scientific, it implies that science can test religious ideas. Do religious people really want to invite scientists to test their ideas?
