Using the master’s tools against him

Dembski himself once defined intelligence as “the power and facility to choose between options – this coincides with the Latin etymology of ‘intelligence,’ namely, ‘to choose between'”. What happens if you use this definition to argue, on Dembski’s own blog, that the theory of evolution “postulates as the agent of evolutionary change – a process of_selection_
(aka ‘choice’) between options” – that is, given Dembski’s own definition of intelligence, natural selection is an intelligent process. Predictably, you get banned. Richard Hoppe has more.

    So evolutionary design = intelligent design. Scary stuff.
