Who Is behind Intelligent-Design Theories?
Intelligent-Design theories that oppose Darwin's theory explaining the fact of evolution do not fit in very well with the people who might be expected to back it. Fundamentalists oppose any acknowledgment of extended evolution and most theistic evolutionists can regard evidence of Intelligent Design of the laws of physics as sufficient. Microsoft, however, can use Intelligent-Design theories to try to support their version of central planning. If any large, useful system requires a single source to design it, then Linux, etc. are discredited from the start.
