ID requires intelligence, not divinity. This is exactly the answer Dembski gives when people charge ID with requiring a supernatural designer. It could be space aliens.

In an earlier post you replied to cnaylor: "You are absolutely correct that the implications of ID get you to a supernatural explanation," so I find your statement disingenuous at best.


And at worse? What are you implying now?

You don't see a difference between what a theory "requires", and the "implications" of such a theory? Thats the distinction I made, and there is nothing contradictory in my statements. Some scientists rejected the Big Bang theory because it had, in their mind, theistic implications. So were Big Bang proponents creationists, disingenuous, or worse, when they claimed to be doing science?
