Intelligently Designed Faith Healing?

What can you get a faith-healing televangelist who has everthing he could ask for? Why an endorcement from intelligent-design “theoretician,” William Dembski.

The ministry of the Manmin Church is quite remarkable, and I have been following it now for several years. As a scientist, I tend to be skeptical about events that are supposed to be miracles. Yet as a Christian, I also know that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and that there is nothing to prevent the power of God from working miraculous events. Having visited the Manmin Church and having seen the news reports of Rev. Dr. Jae-Rock Lee’s ministry around the globe, I am persuaded that God truly is manifesting himself with works of power through this ministry. There is a great need for people to experience the power of God in their lives. I therefore commend “Manmin World News” for emphasizing this aspect of the Christian life that is so often neglected in the West.

— Dr. William A. Dembski (Author of “Intelligent Design”)

“As a scientist” Dembski sure lacks any of the educational background or professional experience to merit the title. Now “pseudo-scientist,” I’d believe that. His entire professional output consists of writting popular books which are are the exact opposite of what he describes above. About the only things he is skeptical of are natural explainations when they come up against his favorite childhood miracles.
