I 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.Oh how I shudder every time I read this. "Historical sciences" teach us about the spreading and mutation of diseases, the changing of the climate and its effect on the ecosystem, the intricate balance between life, the environment and human society. They help us understand these phenomena and interactions, and in this way let us predict and prepare for future cataclysms.ID on the other hand doesn't explain nor can it predict. It is a totally different kind of thing. T.
