Good ole Andy. Always says sensible stuff. Well, this one pops up fairly often in conversations with IDers. Andy uses it to good effect. I thought I would repeat it here as a foil to anybody who asserts that Intelligent Design is any sort of proper theory, with any sort of predictive power.
“So an unknown number of unknown “Designers” influenced the development of life and / or the universe at unknown points in time for unknown reasons with unknown methods. That claim is maximally vague – it is trivially compatible with every conceivable observation, but it also cannot be refuted or supported by any conceivable observation.”
It does everything it is supposed to do. BOOM!
