Define what you mean by "science" and "scientific theory". Read what leads Meyers to make the following conclusion in the article linked in the OP:Thus, ID is not based on religion, but on scientific discoveries and our experience of cause and effect, the basis of all scientific reasoning about the past. Unlike creationism, ID is an inference from biological data.Tell me what you disagree with in his argument that ID is science.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/main.jhtml?xml=/opinion/2006/01/28/do2803.xmlI see theories as being more or less scientific. A continuum, with features like testability and predictions being features of a prototypical "scientific theory". Historical sciences like ID (detecting design that happened in the past) will never score as high on my scale of science, but they are still science.Bryan
