We have ourselves another great book review from Rich regarding Dr. Ross's new book "More Than a Theory." Another book from RTB that I intend to get...

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. -Philippians 4:8

I think Rich makes one good point, "the RTB model would not be permitted to be taught in public schools, even if it were scientifically valid, since it is based upon the Christian scriptures." It's kind of a problem that Hugh has faced before or has duplicated from his previous works as well. If ID were ever to become scientifically valid, it would have to divorce itself from any Biblical influence. To be fair, I think that sounds reasonable...
