You seem to think this is all about one word or one phrase : “Design THEORY”. But if we return to the original article and the original paragraph, we read a much more nuanced discussion!:
" … the Intelligent Design movement says nothing about the identity of the Intelligent Designer of life and/or the cosmos."
" In particular, ID theory do not identify the Designer with the God of the Bible, as the currently available scientific evidence does not warrant that conclusion."
The author does a bait and switch!
FIRST, he talks about the ID MOVEMENT … in connection to the Cosmos (NOT just about the planet Earth).
THEN, he switches to ID THEORY . But the MOVEMENT is certainly intent on linking the God of the Bible to the Designer of the Cosmos. We all know this.
So, as much as I would like to humor you, Mr. Bio., but the INTENT TO CONFUSE seems readily present in this article. And we CATCH him doing it.
