I'm not saying there are not tons of areas that could be research topics. In
fact, ID could be doing research in the very areas I did my Google searches
on where we are seeing tens of thousands of papers since 2003. If they did
the research and actually proved their point not only would it be good
science but Nobel-Prize-worthy science. Science, Nature, and PNAS would be
fighting amongst themselves to publish them. A big criteria to get published
as seen from the guidelines I pointed to is novelty. This certainly is novel
by anyone's definition.If there truly is supressed research languishing in
the lab why don't you send it to PSCF? Scooping the "big boys" on the
science paper of the century would be huge. HUGE.
