My argument is that ID focuses God's actions on issues
which raise specific questions. If God interacts with
his Creation only sporadically, why would we expect
such interactions to focus on for instance the
bacterial flagellum.

Hence my rejection of ID which insists that we can
find objective evidence of His interactions from our
ignorance of how things happened.
