"We're not proposing the book of Genesis as a scientific textbook," West said. "We just think science and religion are friends, not enemies."

Notice he didn't say he didn't believe it was true. Like advertisers trying to sell something, noncommittal, vague language often follows.

The only reassurance I get when reading these views by ID'ers/creationists is that they are being fought by those like PZ. I suppose even falsely held beliefs, e.g., ID, have a naturalistic cause behind them which corresponds with certain people's perceptions, but unfortunately perception does not always match objectified reality, hence the mayhem it brings.
