For the record, as close as I ever come to fully agreeing with anyone, I agree with John on his take on evolution, science, religion, and intelligent design. This again proves my truism that I can always be lazy and let John write what I’m largely thinking on such issues.
I want to quote what I consider the most important part from John’s footnotes:
I tenatively consider myself a proponent of Intelligent Design theory, but I reserve the right to change the name of what I believe in if enough Creationists crash the party and morph ID into a farce. There are some indications, sadly, that this is already happening.
