Theologians argue intelligent design

Karl Giberson, the editor in chief at Science & Theology News, attacked Intelligent Design theory last December. Alvin Plantinga, a philosopher from Notre Dame (the university, not the cathedral), responds:

Giberson also complains that ID hasn’t generated further research or research projects. This may be true. At any rate the proponents of ID haven’t, as far as I know, actually come through with much by way of further research. Perhaps even the central claims of ID are by nature not fecund. They are not such as to suggest further lines of research, at least of the sort [the physicist] George Gamow came up with. Perhaps that’s true. Still, their conclusions might very well be “scientific.” They might very well be true, and they might very well be of great importance, very much worth knowing.
