Intelligent Design Belittles God

Panda's Thumb has a story on a recent article on Father George V. Coyne, the director of the Vatican Observatory. Father Coyne was perhaps the first prominent member of the Catholic Church to openly criticize Cardinal Schoenborn for appearing to take the side of Intelligent Design vs. evolution. Now Father Coyne further criticizes Intelligent Design.

It has been well-recognized that in the covert name of religion, Intelligent Design would launch a covert war on the foundations of empirical science as such. But a number articles have also been written which deal with how Intelligent Design would be destructive of religion itself. Two of them are here:

A Test for Intelligent Design Proponents

Religion and Science

Incidentally, here is an interesting project:

An Open Letter Concerning Religion and Science (We've reached our goal of gathering 10,000 clergy signatures. The next step in our campaign is outlined here.)
