The thread initially focussed on ‘information-for-an-agent’ – which Dembski obviously skirted in the interview with Barham. Check the thread’s title.
TIM: However, and this is my second big ‘but’, although I share your Christian roots and your reasons for rejecting the blind watchmaker thesis, as an ID supporter my rejection of the blind watchmaker thesis is situated inside science. I think evolution, in its broadest atoms-to-people sense, is an inadequate explanation of certain facts that are best explained by ‘intelligent design’. I reject the blind watchmaker thesis for reasons inside science as well as for reasons from outside science. My reasons from outside science are the same as yours, and they are reasons to reject the blind watchmaker thesis, but not to reject evolution.
Bill Dembski: Two different concepts of what ID is: teleology
by Andrew Goatly (Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture: John Benjamins Publishing) What is meant by the notoriously vague term 'ideology'? Defining this could take a whole book, so Goatly provisionally adopts van Dijk's definition and description in Ideology: "the basis of the social representations shared by members of a group. This means that ideologies allow people, as group members, to organise the multitude of social beliefs about what is the case, good or bad, right or wrong, for them and to act accordingly.” One major determinant of these social representations will be "the material and symbolic interests of the group ... power over other groups (or resistance against the domination by other groups) may have a central role and hence function as a major condition and purpose for the development of ideologies". This emphasis on power is central to my use of the term, and, for brevity's sake one might adopt Thompson's definition "meaning in the service of power".

by Debra Higgs Strickland (Visualising the Middle Ages: Brill Academic) Assembled on the occasion of Gary Dickson's retirement from the University of Edinburgh following a distinguished career as an internationally acclaimed scholar of medieval social and religious history, this volume contains contributions by both established and newer scholars inspired by Dickson's particular interests in medieval popular religion, including 'religious enthusiasm'. Together, the essays comprise a comprehensive and rich investigation of the idea of sanctity and its many medieval manifestations across time (fifth through fifteenth centuries) and in different geographical locations (England, Scotland, France, Italy, the Low Countries). By approaching the theme of sanctity from multiple disciplinary perspectives, this highly original collection pushes forward current academic thinking about medieval hagiography, iconography, social history, women's studies, and architectural history.
DEBRA HIGGS STRICKLAND, Ph.D. (1993) in Art History, Columbia University, is Deputy Director of the Glasgow Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, University of Glasgow. Her major publications include (Princeton, 2003).

Bill Dembski on the of intelligent design in science
Dembski, who supports intelligent design, and the idea that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not a naturalistic process such as natural selection.
The Intelligent Design movement is three things:
Dembski describes these questions as from his prior ten years experience in lectures, media interviews, and published criticism by the scientific community opposed to intelligent design, who constitute the majority of the scientific community and science education organizations.
On 5 April Dembski offered a wager concerning Pianka:
Studies outline faith as the state of faith, belief and hope in the trustworthiness or goodness of an individual or entity (Coon, 1997). In facts, faith has been essential virtue of human nature when shared by people. With this regard, faith reinforces religious people to cope well in hostile environments despite challenges with an assurance that things would be better in the end. This is derived by religious interpretation that outlines faith as the aspect of being certain of what we need without tangible proof.
