I.D. and YU

David Klinghoffer, of The Forverts, throws down the gauntlet...
Intelligent Design (see here) is all the rage these days. Conservatives love it because it seems scientific and frum (because it supposes a Creator instead of Darwin at the helm). Christian philosophers, scientists, and theologians have weighed in on it. Where're the Jews? How come the rabbis and scholars at Yeshiva University haven't stepped to the podium on the issue?, he asks. Isn't that the Maimonidean heritage that YU aspires to or claims for itself?, he chides. Are they afraid?, he mocks.
Yeah, but it might be more complex than all that.
