72. true, but what the poster said may have some truth

The main problem with ID (other than it's not a real stand alone theory) is that it always ends up promoting a xtian God, one could suggest many possible beginnings that don't involve the God of the xtian bible, Spinoza's God for example.

In the short story The Last Question, Isaac Asimov offered a unique version of creation, which involves a universe wide computer that "evolves" over time, it reaches a point where it can answer "the last question". Pretty great short story, Personally if one were to extrapolate different versions of a "God theory" one of them would have to be Asimov's version.
