    I was referring to your claim that Ditto head not had only listed the most extreme versions. If he listed all two of them, then he also listed the least extreme

    then why did you post "claims" plural? you really need to work on posting what you actually mean instead of making us guess. having to call you on it and then having you clarify is getting old.

    A typo. Now will you defend your 2nd claim, or will you admit you were wrong to say that he only posted "the most extreme"?

    I'm not sure what is in between those extremes.

    The science of evolution is correct, yet, there is a creator. Nothing wrong with that. The alternative is to believe that intelligence came about all by itself. The "young Earth" notion is simply based on ancient writings that have been proven to be impossible except as an allegory.

    In between the Young Earth and the creator god who used evolution as a way of creating life, what is there?

    I'm sure you already know this so it's not directed at you, but I just wanted to reiterate for the casual reader that Intelligent Design is a very broad term which can refer to everything from God directly speaking all of reality into existence within 7, 24-houre days, to humans breeding a custom dog over generations of litters.

    Creationism falls within that broad spectrum. All Creationism is Intelligent Design, but not all Intelligent Design is Creationism.

    Thank you for your peculiar interpretation of the meaning of the term. Intelligent Design is widely accepted to mean the old teleological argument for God, wrapped in modern scientific terminology by creationists, in the mistaken belief that it promotes their cause by avoiding specifying the identity of the assumed "designer".

    If there are only two, then calling them "the extremes" is misleading. There's nothing "extreme" about them.
