Our old friend Denyse "Buy My Book" O'Leary, takes a strong stand for the scientific integrity of intelligent design theory. She says it would be foolish for egghead ID theorists to correct their country bumpkin young earth supporters who fervently believe the planet is about 6,000 years old.

Telling them the truth -- that the earth is really 4.6 billion years old -- says Denyse. "is politically astonishingly naive" because "intelligent design-friendly scientists who accept universal common descent" have nothing to gain.

Keeping people in the dark about what you believe, failing to teach the evidence to your supporters is merely a "matter of political common sense and actually has nothing to do with the legitimacy or usefulness of YEC ideas."

Why is it, that time and again, those who profess most strongly to believe in an all-seeing God, turn out to be the most cynical opportunists walking the face of the earth? Can it possibly be an accident that ID theorists who insist they're motivated purely by the science are more willing to play politics with the evidence than to develop any themselves?
