Via the inimitable Curmudgeon, the most very bestest definition of Intelligent Design *ahem* theory I’ve ever encountered:
An unknown intelligence (whether it’s a solitary creature or a vast swarm is never addressed), with utterly unknown characteristics (mortal or immortal, sexual or asexual, plant or animal, physical or spiritual), whose home base is unknown, and whose ultimate origin is a mystery (evolved, created, or eternal), arrived on earth somehow (in a flying saucer, perhaps, or maybe on a comet), at some unspecified time (or several times), and then in some unspecified way (technological or magical), for unspecified reasons (boredom, or maybe cosmic fulfillment), did something (or maybe several things) to influence the genetic characteristics of some (but maybe not all) of the creatures on earth.
The entire Discovery Institute couldn’t have said it better. But I do realise that isn’t saying much, considering all they do manage to say is either incoherent or rank, stinky bullshit.
