Scholarship in Light of Intelligent Design
I'll do the best I can to try to lay out some concerns I have about the intelligent design movement and the impact that I think it should have on scholarship. Now, to begin with, I want to make a point that intelligent design (I.D.) is actually an expression of a broader commitment that might be called theistic realism. Now, what exactly is theistic realism? Well, roughly, theistic realism is the idea that first there is a monotheistic God that exists. Secondly, that it is rational to believe that a monotheistic god exists--that's important. So the idea is not just that it's true that there's a God, but also that there is objective reason and evidence and rational considerations that God exists. And third, it is the idea that belief in a monotheistic God can do intellectual work for one in the disciplines across the university.
