Dear Harv,

Thanks for a most instructive response. I guess its 'In technology I trust' for the laymen. As you probably realize I am on the fringe of science having had experiences, purely subjective and subject to interpretation, that lead me to believe in a form of active control of my life, as well as more passive phenomena like remote human sensing that I can model using science.

For lack of more precise terminology I call this 'active control' God. It defines my God, but the control could very well be something like MP, or some very complex action of many forces or intelligences.

Anyway I then assume that this control applies to everybody and everything for all time. That leads me to believe that although intelligence is probably a natural outcome of ceretain selection conditions, this God has actively promoted conditions to produce intelligent lifeforms which then feed into the godhead, so to speak.

So I guess that I am not an IDer, because the design that eventually produces intelligence is latent in nature from the beginning. It's more like I am an MPer type of creationist.

Is that a concept, MP, of your invention, or can you provide a link to an exposition of that idea?
