Larry Moran has replied to my previous post criticizing his treatment of Ken Miller’s views on science and religion. I’ll let him have the last word, except for the quick comment that I still think he’s misinterpreting Miller’s intent. Certainly Miller believes that God is active in the world and might influence events in ways that are undetectable to science. But he manifestly does not say that there is some gap in modern evolutionary theory that must be filled by divine intervention. That is a crucial difference between his views and those of the ID folks.
On the other hand, maybe Moran has him right and I am wrong. When Miller writes about science he is a model of clarity and concision. But when he turns to religion his arguments become muddled and vague.
As an aside, I reviewed Miller’s book for Skeptic around seven years ago. It is available here, in PDF format, if you are curious. It was my first published piece of writing about evolution. I stand by nearly all of it today, though I am somewhat embarrassed now that I endorsed Miller’s chapter criticizing people like Richard Lewontin and Daniel Dennett.
