Text Quotes
The world is a mirror representing the divine life  (William A Dembski Quotes) I believe God created the world for a purpose. The Designer of intelligent design is, ultimately, the Christian God  (William A Dembski Quotes) Constrained optimization is the art of compromise between conflicting objectives. This is what design is all about. To find fault with biological design - as Stephen Jay Gould regularly does - because it misses some idealized optimum is therefore gratuitous. Not knowing the objectives of the designer, Gould is in no position to say whether the designer has proposed a faulty compromise among those objectives  (William A Dembski Quotes) I’m not saying that atheists can’t act morally or have moral knowledge. But when I ascribe virtue to an atheist, it’s as a theist who sees the atheist as conforming to objective moral values. The atheist, by contrast, has no such basis for morality. And yet all moral judgments require a basis for morality, some standard of right and wrong  (William A Dembski Quotes) Intelligent design is a modest position theologically and philosophically. It attributes the complexity and diversity of life to intelligence, but does not identify that intelligence with the God of any religious faith or philosophical system  (William A Dembski Quotes) Natural selection certainly operates. It explains how bacteria will gain antibiotic resistance; it will explain how insects get insecticide resistance, but it doesn’t explain how you get bacteria or insects in the first place  (William A Dembski Quotes) The problem of good as it faces the atheist is this: Nature, which is the nuts-and-bolts reality for the atheist, has no values and thus can offer no grounding for good and evil. Values on the atheist view are subjective and contingent  (William A Dembski Quotes) The wrong people will do everything in their power to guarantee that the wrong political climate will continue. It seems, then, that the wrong people ensure the wrong political climate and the wrong political climate ensures the wrong people. How then to break free of this vicious circle?  (William A Dembski Quotes) There is an immediate payoff to intelligent design: it destroys the atheistic legacy of Darwinian evolution. Intelligent design makes it impossible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist  (William A Dembski Quotes) The scientific picture of the world championed since the Enlightenment is not just wrong but massively wrong. Indeed entire fields of inquiry, especially in the human sciences, will need to be rethought from the ground up in terms of intelligent design  (William A Dembski Quotes) Because government has tremendous power, it attracts people who are eager to game the system, obtaining by force of law what they could never achieve through consensus  (William A Dembski Quotes) Even with the right political climate, would the wrong people refrain from doing the wrong thing?  (William A Dembski Quotes) Without a unified political climate of opinion, there is little or no political profit in doing the right thing.  (William A Dembski Quotes) The problem with merely writing so that you can be understood is that the wrong people, in advancing their agendas, are only too ready to misunderstand you. Writing so that you cannot be misunderstood anticipates and preempts those who would willfully distort what you are trying to say  (William A Dembski Quotes) The mechanical philosophy was ever blind to this fact. Intelligent design, on the other hand, readily embraces the sacramental nature of physical reality. Indeed, intelligent design is just the Logos theology of John’s Gospel restated in the idiom of information theory  (William A Dembski Quotes) Design theorists are no friends of theistic evolution  (William A Dembski Quotes) If you have no authority to legislate my freedoms, then I’m truly free, at least from you  (William A Dembski Quotes) Christ is indispensable to any scientific theory, even if its practitioners do not have a clue about him  (William A Dembski Quotes) Intelligent design, unlike creationism, is a science in its own right and can stand on its own feet  (William A Dembski Quotes) The atheist is cheating whenever he makes a moral judgment, acting as though it has an objective reference, when his philosophy in fact precludes it  (William A Dembski Quotes) Without a unified political climate of opinion, there is little or no political profit in doing the right thing  (William A Dembski Quotes) Because government has tremendous power, it attracts people who are eager to game the system, obtaining by force of law what they could never achieve through consensus  (William A Dembski Quotes) Government has a legitimate sphere of operation. The problem arises when that sphere continually expands, encompassing areas where government lacks legitimacy  (William A Dembski Quotes) Wrong people are wrong not because of their faults but because of their presumed virtues  (William A Dembski Quotes) Wrong people are wrong because they use their freedom to deny it to others  (William A Dembski Quotes) Virtually every discipline and endeavor is presently under a naturalistic pall  (William A Dembski Quotes) If you have no authority to legislate my freedoms, then I’m truly free, at least from you  (William A Dembski Quotes) As long as the wrong people hold power, how can the right political climate even arise?  (William A Dembski Quotes)
