Eugene Robinson, in this commentary for The Washington Post, argues that intelligent design is actually anti-faith, in that it seeks to prove there is a God.
“There is no need to have faith in something that can be touched, measured, quantified, predicted; no need for faith in something that can be seen if only we build a big enough telescope or a sensitive enough electron microscope.
“What would be the posture of a believer toward a God who could be seen? It might be adoration, I suppose, or obeisance, but it wouldn’t be faith as believers since St. Paul have understood it. Faith requires mystery. Faith requires a leap.”
