In the July/August 1999 issue of TOUCHSTONE, Nancy Pearcey writes, "Finally, [intelligent] design is a winner with the public because it is a scientific research program that actually makes sense to ordinary people."
Is it true? Do "ordinary people" need scientific mythology, just as children need Santa Claus? Or, does God hope that "ordinary people" will mature enough to accept known scientific facts, such as the Big Bang, Earth's age, and Darwinian biological evolution?
The existence of God and historical reality of Jesus and His deity are not dependent on Biblical inerrancy and scientific mythology (modern creationism): YEC, OEC, ID. Wouldn't it be better, in the long run, to show the compatibility of Christianity with correct science?
