A few weeks ago I noted the fact that some Christians appear to detect design and divine control in the beauty of nature. For example, witnessing lightning and a rainbow simultaneously, one observer was driven to comment: “It reminded me that God is really in control.” Now, it appears, Dembski is thinking the same way. He notes a photo “captured this week on the Idaho/Washington border” that shows a “fire rainbow” and comments that “[i]t’s the gratuitousness of such beaty [sic] that leads me to rebel against materialism.”
Over at Stranger Fruit, I reply. You too can comment there.
