Wanting to believe in ID

I think that part of the problem in combatting Intelligent Design in the media by scientists and scientiophiles is that many people *want* to believe in ID.
That is to say, they are reassured, comforted and in some cases revel in the knowledge that there is evidence to back up their faiths, their belief.
That’s pretty hard to combat in the media and elsewhere. And wanting to believe in something does not make any more likely that it is the truth.
Of course, IMO, faith with ironclad proof is no faith at all.
Gabriel, and Constantine, in the Constantine movie
Constantine: “I believe!”
Gabriel. “No. You KNOW. There’s a difference.”
