The Unknown and Intelligent Design

A New York Times book review of Warped Passages brings up an interesting point for the whole Intelligent Design debate: how much do we really know about science, anyway? I’m not a fundamentalist saying that God created the world in six days–but it is important for us post-Descartes individuals to get off our triumphalist high horse every once in a while and realize that we still know very little about the secrets of the Universe. Does that mean ID should be taught alongside evolution? Not necessarily. But it does mean that we should teach evolution–and all science–with a grain of salt.
