Some Christians I know talk about “intelligent design,”saying that it points to God and proves evolution false. Please explain.


Some Christians will talk about intelligent design and claim that it points to God and proves evolution false, but that’s not really trueIntelligent design, which is sometimes called ID, points to the apparent order in the universe and infers that it could not have come about through random processes, as evolution teaches. ID says that if we see design, it’s logical to infer that there is also a designer. Intelligent Design, however, does not necessarily point to God. It claims a designer but does not name that designer as our Creator God. As Christians, we are creationists. We believe that the Triune God, who is revealed in the Holy Bible, is both Designer and Creator!
