A1: Is ID Anti-Evolution? Yes and No.
Notice the paradox.
- ID is not meant to be anti-evolutionist (agreed), but…
- ID is populated by many anti-evolutionists, and hasn’t figured out how to separate itself from anti-evolutionist rhetoric and argumentation.
For this reason, it does not seem strictly correct to insist that “ID has nothing to do with anti-evolutionism.” I suggest this language, in addition to pointing to this post/thread:
“ID is a complex movement, that includes both anti-evolutionists, and people who affirm, or are open to, common descent.”
That is something everyone should agree with, because it is true. I suggest that we hammer out agreed upon language here. Rather than saying ID has nothing to do with anti-evolutionism (false), we should explain the paradox of ID. I would join with you in arguing against the claim that ID is merely full of anti-evolutionist YECs (a false claim). The solution, however, is not going to far the other way. What is the accurate compromise language you can agree with so we can work together?
