Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

What Do Creationists Think the Difference between Darwinism and Intelligent Design Is?

According to Orin Judd (as a comment on an article describing the difference between designed systems and evolved systems):

These poor guys have themselves so far down the dead end they have to pretend there's a fundamental difference between kinds of intelligent design.
In other words, evolution by itself is not counted as Darwinist. If you want to know what Orin Judd does count as Darwinist:
Freud may have been the silliest of the bearded godkillers, but at least he doesn't have so blood-soaked a legacy as Marx and Darwin.
I think this is typical of Creationists. They have encountered enough “village atheists” claiming the authority of Darwin that they think only atheist theories count as Darwinian.

Of course, that means that rejecting what typical Creationists think of as Darwinism is not a disaster after all and you can't use alleged Creationism against “faith-based” organizations or policies.
