I appreciate the heart of what intelligent design people are trying to do, but it's a dead-end road. It's not science; it's philosophy.
Is it bollocks.

Fixed.

Philosophy is about working forwards: theology is about working backwards. This is why theologians make fuckwitted mistakes like assuming evolution is teleological...
Evolutionary theology talks about evolution in a way that gives people a sense of purpose as part of something infinitely meaningful.
...and philosophers don't.

Sorry to get grumpy, but really.
