Intelligent Design Creationism

"Intelligent Design Creationism" is a term used by many opposed to both creationism and intelligent design as a deceptive way of conflating the two.

Both intelligent design and creationism make use of the design argument—the argument that we can see evidence of design in nature—but that's about where the similarity ends.

Creationism proposes that we were created by God, and uses as evidence both scientific evidence (including evidence for design) and historical evidence (specifically the Bible).

Intelligent Design proposes that we can scientifically detect evidence of design in nature (especially in living things), but does not attempt to identify, let alone describe, the designer, and it restricts itself to scientific evidence.
