Is intelligent design a biblical concept? Many Christians would answer “yes.”
Yet, the concept of an intelligent designer does not necessarily lead a person to believe in God. William Dembski has written a great deal about intelligent design, and he pointed out this reality: “Even if a theory of intelligent design should ultimately prove successful and supersede Darwinism, it would not follow that the designer posited by this theory would have to be a transcendent deity or for that matter real in some ontological sense. One can be an antirealist about science and simply regard the designer as a regulative principle—a conceptually useful device for making sense out of certain facts of biology—without assigning the designer any weight in reality.”
As Christians this should give us reason to pause and reconsider our support of intelligent design. Can we really be behind a theory that only gets us an undefined designer? The designer could be the God of the Bible . . . but intelligent design theory would also be compatible with multiple gods working together in the design of the universe. Or the god of ????
Basically, intelligent design does not lead to belief in the God of the Bible. Thus Christians should be wary in their support of intelligent design.
