[asa] What would evidence for design look like?

Pim asked a good question. "What would evidence for design look like?"

So I'd like to propose this consideration:

Behe would answer that design appears irreducibly complex.
The problem is that, using model theory methods, any potentially irreducibly-complex
component can simply be placed into a new model.
And so it appears that the argument may never end.

And that, it would seem, may represent a weakness in both ID/IC and Darwinian evolution.
Why of ID/IC? Because they may never reach an end proof.
Why of Darwinian ideas? Because more complex model would seem to require more time for each added complexity.
