This quote is from Dahlia Lithwick’s article, Mind the Gaps – Intelligent design as an answer to all life’s great conundrums in Slate magazine:
But the critics are missing the beauty of this new theory. Because the really great thing about intelligent design is that it takes all the awkward uncertainty out of science. It says, “You know those damn theoretical gaps and conundrums that send microbiology graduate students into dank basement laboratories at 3 a.m.? They don’t need to be resolved at all. Go back to bed, sleepy little grad students. God fills those gaps.”
Go read it. The whole thing is wonderful.
