I'm not going to bother reading the previous comments because I just want to say that there is no such thing as a `theological` argument. Theology is just a small facet of what we collectively call culture and it makes more sense to think of theology in those terms.

Why fight about how we came to be when you could be doing more important things...

There is not ONE person my age or near my generation who ever felt threatened by Hillary Clinton in a pant suit. Only the older generations seem to throw a fit about it. We simply don't feel that way about a woman taking a traditionally male role.

We have recorded solid evidence of creatures evolving. I laugh at the creationists that rigidly believe in purely creation.

When people finally realize there is no theory that describes the origins of artificial species other than intelligent design, I will be laughing at them too. There is no repeatable evidence? We have been doing intelligent design for nearly a decade. Mostly simple single celled organisms, but intelligent design regardless has existed for as long as gene splicing and the likes. If you don't think gene splicing quite cuts it, then do consider in another few centuries, we will probably be redesigning ourselves from scratch as well as all our other favorite species.

The main rejection of ID I feel is very much cultural. Soon, when it is nearing daily life and the creation of artificial sentience, I think it may be an ethical dilemma as well.

CrackrJak, I admire crusaders, but you may be going overkill.
