Limits of Intelligent Design

I listened to a podcast interview of Dr. Bill Dembski in which he stated what he considers to be the proper scope of intelligent design theory.

At roughly the 20:55 and 26:50 minute marks, he says that one cannot necessarily infer from intelligent design theory that there is an omnipotent, omniscient, all-good, or all-loving Creator God.  That would be going too far, he says.  Instead, intelligent design theory points only to some yet unknown intelligence behind the evidence of design in biological life.

I really like to hear this type of honesty and strict logic when people discuss matters that often get muddled by emotion, faith, and alleged personal revelation.  Thanks Dr. Dembski.
