design philosophy is rooted to ideas of intelligent
design is the claim that "certain features of the universe
and of living things are best explained by an intelligent
cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection."
It is a modern form of the traditional teleological argument
for the existence of God, modified to avoid specifying the
nature or identity of the designer. Its primary proponents,
all of whom are associated with the Discovery Institute, believe
the designer to be God. Intelligent design's advocates claim
it is a scientific theory, and seek to fundamentally redefine
science to accept supernatural explanations.
