The method of science was not to be achieved by developing abstract notions such as those of the medieval scholastics, but rather through the instruction of the understanding "that it may in very truth dissect nature." "By art and the hand of man," nature should be "forced out of her natural state and squeezed and molded. " In this way "human knowledge and human power meet as one."' Thus Bacon, in bold sexual imagery, outlined the key features of the modern experimental method-constraint of nature in the laboratory, dissection by hand and mind, and the penetration of nature's hidden secrets-language still used today in praising a scientist's "hard facts," "penetrating mind," or "seminal" arguments.

Perhaps over the next five decades a global ecological revolution will take place so that by the middle of the twenty-first century we will have new forms of production, reproduction, and consciousness that will sustain both people and the natural environment. Dembski’s hypothesis of design provides precious little that is testable. Greenwashing: the political or business practice of masking an environmentally destructive activity by promoting it as environmentally beneficial ("Healthy Forests Initiative") or, at worst, minimally damaging (e.g., the Bush Administration's argument that oil drilling operations in Alaska will only take up a few thousand square miles of the immense Arctic National Wildlife Refuge--which is like claiming that a man spraying toxic fumes into the air all around him takes up only the few inches on which his feet touch the ground).
