Christianity's Ground Clearing Operation

Anya Litvak continues her remarkable series on evolution and intelligent design with "Faith & Reason: Between science and belief, many Missourians search for answers to the big questions," part three of the series in the Columbia Missourian. Invaluable. Here's a sample:

The Discovery Institute, which, according to its Web site, operates with the “belief in God-given reason and the permanency of human nature,” consistently scoffs at accusations of a religious agenda. But the institute’s senior fellow, mathematician and philosopher William Dembski, gives credit to creation science guru Henry Morris for stirring evolution opposition and says intelligent design is much closer to creationism than to evolution.

“In its relation to Christianity, intelligent design should be viewed as a ground-clearing operation that gets rid of the intellectual rubbish that for generations has kept Christianity from receiving serious consideration,” Dembski wrote in a reply to Morris.
