Hi George,

Very helpful!

I hadn't considered the distinction between "science stopper" in theory
and "science stopper" in practice.

I think I've been arguing that ID isn't necessarily a "science stopper"
in theory, whereas others have been arguing that its a "science stopper"
in practice.

At least, recasting the discussion in those terms makes Pim's position a
fair degree more understandable to me. Particularly if one distinguishes
between what ID theorists have tried to do, and what their efforts have
actually achieved.
