    No, it's not.

    Actually it is.

    Aninism explains natural phenomena that could not be explained at the time, such as lightning and the rainy season to anima, or functionally spirits generally of the supernatural state.
    Intelligent design argues that because some things are too complex to arise on their own and because we can't explain how they got there, something (namely supernatural) was the cause.

    The underlying logic is identical.

    A belief that argues Goddidit because we can't explain how a complex organ like an eye formed is the same belief that Zeus throws lightning because we couldn't explain how it happened back then.

    Intelligent Design is nothing more then repackaged Aninism. Therefore, Conservapedia arguing that Intelligent Design is real science has argued that Aninism is real science.

    That's a huge stretch that makes no real sense. That's like saying that air and water are the same thing becuase they both contain oxygen.

    Uh, how is it a huge stretch? Animism explains phenomena that couldn't be explained to supernatural beings. Intelligent design explains phenomena that can't be explained to a supernatural beings.

    How are they different aside the fact that in the second sentence it's Animism and in the third its ID?

    Are psychology and psychiatry the same thing? Are cars and airplanes the same thing? Are trains and ships the same thing? Are planets and moons the same thing?

    Re: Conservopedia

    Your post is entirely nonsensical in the context of this discussion. Can you produce a coherent argument as to why the logic between the two is not identical?

    Not one that you're likely to understand, apparently. Because two things have similarities doesn't make them the same. I don't care anyway, neither of the beleifs you mentioned mean anything to me, so carry on with your misconceptions.

    Similarities? The principle foundation of their belief is identical. I still have not seen an argument by you as to why ID is not repackaged animism.
