Georgia Purdom at YEC Conference
Jason Rosenhouse in Skeptic magazine, Vol.12, #2, pg.15, discussing a talk by Georgia Purdom at a Young Earth Creationist Conference:
"Purdom began by arguing that ID poses grave problems for Christians by taking no stand on the nature and specific actions of the designer. She discussed the natural theology of the 18th and 19th centuries, presenting it as an argument that we could have knowledge of God apart from the Bible."
"Purdom then argued that natural theology backfired because it led to deism."
"She argued that another problem with ID is that it provides no account of poor design. She pointed to pathogenic microbes, carnivorous animals, and viruses. She said that ID makes God Himself the author of such natural evil, instead of original sin being the culprit."
Of course these quotes are from Rosenhouse, not Purdom herself.
