Just for a bit of clarification....

Sometimes I feel I use creationism/ID and "christian" interchangeably. Not everyone who claims to be a christian takes the bible quite so literally, and they are standing up for themselves, and for Darwin.

It's a good reminder to me to try harder not to paint everyone with the same brush.

Hmm, I never thought that way. I do, however, lump the creationists and IDers together, regardless of their flavour of theology. You can't not, really.

I agree that creationists and IDers are in the same bunch. They just choose different words. If someone believes that Noah's flood was a literal truth, they get the creationist/ID label from me.

But since the last pope of the Catholic church said Evolution was compatible with their faith, we can't put them in the same boat. I think some people choose to use their brain in their search for god, and while I may not share their faith, I do think those certain people deserve a higher level of respect.
