ID is a joke theory that has only gained any sort of credibility because the evangelical lobby in the US has spent millions of pounds on "scientific" research to further its cause.

No serious scientist who isn't on their payroll believes it.

No real opinion, I don't think it would be possible to prove any of them.

I think that Darwinism is the most likely theory, but I am not a scientist and have not studied and so cannot say for certain. I dislike committing myself to a viewpoint without having studied it.

However, I do not think that Darwinism and the idea of some form of Higher Being are mutually exclusive. Certainly it goes against traditional Creationism, but beyond that I'm not sure that I see any problem.

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed. (or Matter, it doesn't make a difference to me, but then my science knowledge goes as far as my current A2 Chemistry & Biology!)

I'm a Christian evolutionist! I can't see how you can have creation without evolution & evolution without creation, I don't believe in 6 day creation, nor that the world is only 6000 years old, I've held skulls older than that, the creation I believe in is a spiritual one! I agree with Kirki, it's pretty hard to know either way, any good scientist will tell you that to have a valid conclusion it will need to be tried & tested, recreating the world isn't that easy!

The book by Richard Dawkins which suggests we are genetically incapable of altruism and that the human species has a 'selfish gene' is an interesting one. It explains that humans were not genetically programmed to act for the good of the group, more so for the individual.
that theroy quite resembles that of the fundamental principle of Economics

Darwin himself was inspired by the economists Malthus and Adam Smith.
