Woodward Gets a B on ID

Kenneth Woodward, dean of American reporters on religion, takes a break from his usual gig at Newsweek and writes an op-ed piece on ID in the classroom for the New York Times. It deserves to be read by all gentle readers.

Mind you, Woodward misunderstands ID, so don't pay as much attention to the latter half of the article as the first half. What he does well is note that there is a grave difference between the scientific method, which must proceed without the hypothesis of God, which cannot be tested, and the doctrinnaire notion that scientific knowledge is the only knowledge.

This, gentle readers will recall, is the SWNID refrain on the subject. So listen to someone else sing it.
