My apologies for perpetuating "dealt-with" comments on the "lock-picking" thread
I began. This has been my way of trying to honestly wrestle with the question,
and I see that I may have to wade back through Timaeus' posts to try & find
where he has addressed my question raised. (which is basically: if science
widely accepted a design conclusion regarding phenomenon X, what are some
possible examples of further scientific inquiry about that phenomenon?) J.Burg
offering an answer on that thread which is food for thought.

 I do really want to know where this could lead, even though my current position
has been steeped more in the "critical of ID" camp. Being here at work today, I
don't yet have time to finish reading all of this one (6D) let alone all the
previous posts. So I am sorry to be taking time to spout criticism in the
absence of having read everything you have to offer Timaeus. I have looked for
Denton's books (to no avail) at our large public library. So I'll either need
to purchase or try Interlibrary loan. My expression of common ID criticisms is
my way of trying to "shortcut" to some answers in the interim.
