What do people in the new age or psychobabble cultures think of ID?
It's been years since I have kept up with them. I suspect even new agers, 12 steppers, and what not would probably not gravitate to ID in measurable numbers. They would be very skeptical once they realize far right evangelicals are the cultural force behind intelligent design.
But that wouldn't stop some of them from coming up with their own line of design theories once they recognize the opportunity and appeal to a certain demographic, as well as how forgiving intelligent design theory is. It requires no proof and you need not have any education or degree in biology. In fact philosophers, English majors and accountants do nicely as "design theorist". It's all propaganda and marketing.
So my question is are any of the new age or pop psychology groups or organizations currently getting in on the ID action yet?
Speaking of which...I am surprised the Raelian inspired Atheist Intelligent Design Theory is not getting more play. They claim they can offer what the Discovery Institute only theorizes about. Yeah I know, that's crazy talk but they are offering exactly what Dembski and Behe claim, it could be a space alien or time traveler.
