06/21/2005: Less Intelligence in the Designers of ID...
Yet another good piece about the I.D. Lacking in intelligent design people in this article by Mort Kondracke: 'Intelligent Design' Belongs in Church, Not Biology Class.
"...But ID isn't science. Its concepts can't be independently verified. In essence, ID holds that living organisms are so complex that they couldn't be the product of blind natural forces, but had to be the work of a Designer - or, at least, a designer.
The scientific problem is this: There is no way to locate actual evidence of a designer, be it small-d or big-D. Proponents of ID, including some sophisticated scientists, point to holes in Darwinian explanations for the development of life and say that only "intelligent design" can fill the gap. But that's not proof of design...."
