ID a Metaphysical Concept Says Newsday
The "problem is that there is no way to prove, in a scientifically valid way, the existence of an intelligent designer," says a Newsday editorial. "That's a metaphysical concept that can only be accepted on faith. Instead, the bold assumptions that Darwin made on the inheritability of variations based on natural selection are constantly supported by new data in genetics, physics and biochemistry. Although, clearly, there is a limit to what science can explain - that is where metaphysics does come in."
