Compare this with what the ID movement aims for:

sj: "Phillip Johnson's idea of revolution is not, then, a struggle to control one
corner of the ivory tower. He is playing for all the marbles for the
governing paradigm of the entire thinking world. He believes evolution's
barren rule can be overturned, that it is ripe for revolution. He hopes to
rejuvenate rationality, to turn disagreements into "things that can be argued
about." (Stafford T., "The Making of a Revolution", Christianity Today,
Vol. 41, No. 14, December 8, 1997.

sj: I predict that because TE/ECs are content with the maintaining the status
quo of preserving their `talents' rather than trying to increase them, and
worse still, spend most of their energy attacking their creationist Christian
brothers who aim higher than that, in the 21st century, `even what little
they have will be taken away.' (~Lk 19:26).

We have seen little effort on creationist's side to venture in science. YEC is scientifically dead in the water.
Philip Johnson is good at rethoric but that's where his contribution has ended. ID and IC are just God of the Gaps in a new jacket. Creationists are 'reinventing' themselves but they are as far from science as their medieval counterparts.
