Cross-currents has published an article by Rabbi Avi Shafran on intelligent design, which I think is worth a read, whether you agree or disagree with ID.
The Rabbi gives a perspective on the controversy from the writings of Maimonides, one of Judaism’s greatest scholars.
The article was originally published in the Jewish Observer.
La Shawn Barber presents an interesting story that should convince you, (if you’re not already convinced), that NPR is a bastion of liberalism, along with some links explaining ID.
Both Shafran and Barber point out that Evolutionary theory has taken on the defacto status of the state religion, to the extent that some within the scientific community will stop at nothing to keep out any competition in the public arena with their pet theory.

I think, too, that this is one of those situations where traditional Jews and Christians have the opportunity to focus on what we have in common, with neither side compromising on principles.
