Reading through another recent discussion I was struck by the following comment (my emphasis added):
That is not an unusual claim from ID, I’ve seen it many times before. I want to add that I’m not trying to pick on @Giltil for his opinion, he just happened to provide the example that got me thinking about it. Next, @Rumraket points out the flaw …
“We expect the pattern from evolution”; here it seems the particular design perspective is also the evolution perspective. Rumraket continues about why we don’t expect this from design, but that’s another matter.
What I am trying to say, is that there is no design perspective that differs significantly from the evolutionary perspective. Where predictions are made concerning Design they are always confused versions of the evolutionary perspective, as in the example above.
Question: If there is a design perspective, then what is it?
Now that I’ve gotten this far, I’ve realized that Intelligent Design wasn’t specifically mentioned in my example. There are some here who might make a meaningful case for a design perspective (not necessarily a scientific argument). That’s OK - What I’m really hoping for is the differences between design and evolution, if there are any.
