Science and Religion

Well, the intelligent design ruling is in, and ID has lost. Seems like a bit of a Pyrrhic victory though. There's something sad about science becoming the criteria for legitimate belief. Seems like the Christians would want to avoid it somehow. Why should all human thought have to be quantified by technicians? What will happen to the uncanny when it has to be proved by science? To quote the master:

"Religions die when they are proved to be true."
-Oscar Wilde
