A redated post.
What does it mean to say "ID is only disguised creationism?" Creationism, I take it would be
C) The species in existence today were specially created by God, and were not produced by any evolutionary process.
Whereas Intelligent Design is committed to
ID) The species in existence today, including man, were, in part, produced by a process distinct from the processes described in neo-Darwinian theory (random variation, natural selection, genetic drift, etc.) in that these processes included the work of an intelligent designer.
But C and ID are really equivalent, because
P) In the proposed high school textbook, Of Pandas and People, numerous references to a creator were changed to refer to an intelligent designer, once the Supreme Court upheld the anti-creationism decisions.
But C and ID are not equivalent, and P does nothing to show that C and ID are equivalent. The changes, clearly, changed the meanings of the statements. Plato clearly believed in ID but not C, and a case could be made the Hume did so as well.
So when people say that ID is just disguised C, what do they mean?
