Intelligent Design Theory

As Vaisnavas it’s important to know that something called ID Theory or IDT (Intelligent Design Theory) has come to the notice of Darwinists and neo-Darwinists, and is generally construed to be a pseudo-scientific manifestation of ‘creationism.’ But Ph.D. researchers and professors have been careful to avoid creationist and dogmatic jargon. They have even set up research institutes proposing that the Darwin theory of evolution is not rigorously scientific, that it can’t be ‘proven,’ in the way that other theories can. Most IDT advocates are careful not to mention the word God. But IDT worries some scientists. In fact the CSICOP (Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal), a rationalist-empiricist-reductionism group has written official papers to refute IDT. This is an indication that IDT is being gradually being recognized as an optional answer to the question of “how did we get here?”
