Documentary on Intelligent Design

Ben Stein--former Nixon speechwriter, actor who played the deadpan teacher in Ferris Bueller's Day Off ("Bueller . . . Bueller"), host of "Win Ben Stein's Money," conservative commentator, etc.--has a new documentary coming out in February 2008 on the issue of intelligent design and it's marginalization among academic elites. You can watch the trailer online.

M&M--given your defense (from what I can tell) of Creationism, how do you feel about Michael Behe's acceptance of universal common descent and evolutionary timeframes?
Intelligent Design and Creationism really can't be reconciled. Unless I'm missing something...
Cheers,

Daniel,
Thanks for your question. I see Intelligent Design as a first step in the right direction. First we admit that there is a Creator and then, through the Bible, we are able to see who that Creator is and how well he can be trusted. This informs our science - since God is the only real empirical scientist available on the scene at that time!
Hope this helps,
Mark
