    Default Evolution vs. Intelligent Design/Creationism

    What's your take on this controversy?
    [And I think I indeed enjoy provocative debate for the sake of it.]

    That's actually quite funny.

    I don't know much about Intelligent Design other than the fact that it is pretty much creationism renamed so it can be taught as a science. I've never thought evolution as a theory needed any type of tweaking, nor does it disprove the existence of God. Intelligent Design I've always considered something born from religious insecurity.

    Evolution and creationism are not incompatible by any means, so the basis for the controversy is silly.

    I'm not sure if Intelligent Design and Creationism are the same thing. I've seen people say this, but it is always people denouncing one or the other. They may be the same or it might be a straw man. I'm not sure.

    Well, creationism in the sense it includes divine input, not as in the story of Creation in Genesis. I'm just going by a quick scan of the Wikipedia and ID website, because like I said, I don't know much about it and never found evolution lacking anything as a theory.
