The Centre for Unintelligent Design, a pro-science, anti-creationist website, has received a letter from the esteemed Dr. Steve Fuller, one of the witnesses for the ID side during the Dover trial. Responding to the argument that examples of unintelligent design support evolution but not special creation, Fuller ducks into the punch:

"From: Steve Fuller

Dear Keith,

Thanks for this. You might perhaps make more headway with ID people if you understood the position better. The problem
of apparent ‘unintelligent design’ in nature is one that people with ID sympathies have long tackled. Simply look up the
literature on ‘theodicy’.

Steve Fuller"

Since theodicy is a purely religious idea, doesn't that mean Unintelligent Design is just as scientifically supported as Intelligent Design?
