116 wm. Intelligent Design avenue for IY to build bridges?
Subject: Re: Evolution, Intelligent Design & Integral Yoga

find! I've been interested in the elements of ID for some time
[although I've only had the most general understanding of its
principles] and, as a non-scientist, finding in it a way to make a
bridge with my Christian co-workers. Of course, they want nothing to do
with it unless it's Bible-centric, so for them, at least, ID =
But reading the points listed on the Discovery
website, it really does seem that, minus the reactive vituperation of
the scientific community, ID actually looks quite compatible and
relatively non-conflictive with the IY involution/evolutionary
Evolution of Consciousness. Again from my untrained eye, it would seem
a fruitful avenue for building bridges.
However, just to confirm
what was said in their FAQ, it is a matter of faith [so to speak] in
the scientific world to conflate ID with Creationism, and every time I
have mentioned or heard mentioned any kind of evolution of
Consciousness within hearing of someone with a scientific background,
the knee-jerk reaction is always, "Oh! that just sounds like another
version of Intelligent Design" in the most dismissive tones. But like I
said, I agree with you that this seems to be a promising approach to
begin connecting with more mainstream science-oriented individuals.
